The Huarache might not have a swoosh, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a cult classic among Nike heads since its inception back in 1991. There have been complaints about newer Huaraches having an altered shape, but when it comes to this Hyper Pink edition, it was an instant cop for us. Nothing feels better than putting these on and filling out that heel strap. Huarache fever is well and truly upon us.
Saucony have been undergoing quite the resurgence over the past few years, and continue to kill it with their recently-released ‘Cavity Pack’. This model packs all sorts of deliciousness into the Shadow OG – a raspberry toe contrasts beautifully against the liquorice laces. Sprinkle some more pink hits on the inner lining, and Saucony have a winner on their hands.
The 90 still stands as the favoured sneaker for those breaking into the Air Max game, and with good reason. It’s bubbly silhouette and generally clean demeanour makes it easy to dress up and down across both genders, and this Hyper Pink edition packs plenty of punch. With neon hits on the swoosh, tongue and around the air bubble, this has summer written all over it.
The Air Max Light isn’t one of our favourite Air Max models, but this Hyper Pink version ticks all the boxes. A black body slowly brightens to a white midsole, with bright jabs on the sole, swoosh and tongue. Just the right amount, if you ask us.
We might prefer the Asics Kayano, but the Gel Lyte III comes in at a close second. Another dessert-themed sneaker, this ‘Raspberry’ edition drenches the silhouette in rich pink, save the white strip on the midsole. Add in that famous split tongue, and we’re ready to send in multiple orders for this Asics beauty.
The Nike Free has become a hipster favourite, but at the end of the day it’s a light and effortless sneaker that requires minimal effort. Having reintroduced the OG edition earlier this year, Nike deliver this Hyper Pink model to hungry audiences. While the colour combination reminds us a little of their famed ‘Ultramarine’ displayed proudly on the Air 180 and Air Mariah, this Free OG is also a strong adaption.
Back to our trusty pals at Vans. Era’s and Authentic’s will forever remain in our wardrobes as staple classics, and while we do usually like to keep it black and white with Vans, this Camp Snoopy edition is loads of fun. A baby pink body is littered with images of Snoopy in sunglasses, lounging casually and being cool as fuck.
While more traditional sneaker enthusiasts have stuck to Air Max & Jordan products, Nike’s game-changing lightweight models have been all the rage lately. Flyknit, Roshe & Free – They’ve all become staples with streetwear enthusiasts, athletes and fashionistas alike. The Flyknit Racer adds a sleekness and sharpness over its Flyknit Trainer counterpart, with this edition weaving in hits of pink throughout. Yes.
This Foamposite One sold out a long time ago, but we couldn’t leave them off the list. This is somewhat of a grail for us – if anybody feels like buying a pair in US9 and sending it our way, please do! The chunky, high-top sneaker hasn’t found a home in Australia like it has in the States, but this particular pink pair adds plenty of zest to the alien silhouette. An instant head-turner.
The Air Max 1 has definitely stood the test of time – It still looks as clean as ever since it dropped back in 1987, and this edition definitely shows off the shoe’s versatility. With pink bleeding slowly into a deep blue, there might be a little too much going on for some customers – especially adding in that metallic gold swoosh. Still, we think everyone needs something a little crazy in their footwear rotation.
