The Best Sneakers Of The Week, Including Off-White Blazers

Welcome to SNX DLX, your weekly roundup of the best sneakers to hit the internet. This week, rather than getting a bunch of new designs we’re getting a handful of re-stocks of long-sought-after colorways, from Zebra-striped Yeezys to the return of the Mocha Toe Question. While we’re always looking for the latest and greatest shoes, we’ll take a good colorway restock any day of the week — these are somebody’s all-time-favorite sneakers we’re talking about here!

As for the silhouettes themselves, we’ve got some of the usual suspects (Dunks and Jordans, what a surprise) as well as some newcomers like the Adidas’ Tour 360 silhouette (which we’ve never covered) and Virgil Abloh’s first posthumous Off -White Nike drop. Let’s dive into this week’s nine best sneaker drops.

Nike WMNS Dunk High FLS

Nike

Nike has been rolling out a lot of new women’s sized Dunk colorways this year but this week’s FLS colorway is one of the best. Featuring a white tumbled leather upper with light gray leather matte overlays, a swoosh-shaped lace jewel, and a metallic teal wraparound swoosh.

Nike says that the design is “influenced by the confluence of digital and physical worlds,” okay, sure Nike, whatever you say. Just looks like a regular high-top dunk to us in a dope colorway. You don’t really need to do more than that.

The Women’s Dunk High FLS is out now for a retail price of $120. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app.

Yeezy QNTM Mono Carbon

SNX DLX: Week of April 6
adidas

Fans of Yeezy’s rock-formation-as-footwear silhouette, QNTM, are being treated to a brand new colorway of the sneaker. Like most QNTMs, the colorway keeps things low-key with a simple monochromatic gray upper with suede toe box paneling atop a milky white midsole.

It’s a fitting colorway for this particular silhouette, and while we like the recent changes the brand has been making to its general color palette, we’re happy to see the brand sticking to its minimalist aesthetic for this one.

The Yeezy QNTM Mono Carbon is set to drop on April 7th for a retail price of $260. Pick up a pair via the Adidas Confirmed App or Yeezy Supply.

adidas Tour360 22 x Waffle House Limited-Edition Golf Shoes

adidas

Adidas collaborating with mid-western and southern breakfast chain restaurant Waffle House isn’t on our top list of collaborators for the three stripes brand, but these are actually pretty damn dope.

If you’re unaware of the golf world, Georgia is a pretty big fixture on the scene as it’s the location of The Masters — which begins this month and signals the start of the golf season. To celebrate the state that is home to the Masters, Adidas tapped a familiar Georgia icon to serve as the inspiration for a new Tour 360 ’22 colorway.

The sneaker features a batter-inspired colorway across a premium full-grain leather upper, a waffle-pattern three-stripe, and a translucent outsole with maple syrup-inspired graphics underneath a SPIKEMORE traction system. Rounding out the design is Waffle House branding at the heel in the chain’s familiar typography.

The Adidas Tour360 22 x Waffle House Limited-Edition Golf Shoes are set to drop on April 7th for a retail price of $210. Pick up a pair via the adidas Confirmed App.

Nike WMNS Dunk High Vintage Black

What did we say about Nike and the dope women’s-sized Dunk drops? We’re getting a constant out-flow, you love to see it. This vintage-inspired pair is less flashy than the FLS, but it’s that classic black and white leather look.

Uninspired? Sure, but disliking a black and white Dunk High is akin to hating a white Stan Smith with a green heel tab, if you don’t like these things it’s safe to say you just have bad taste.

The Nike Dunk High Vintage Black is set to drop on April 7th for a retail price of $125. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app.

So consider me sold! The Jordan Horizon applies an aged look to the TPU cage and features a black midsole with a cement white shark tooth and a beautiful jade leather upper.

The Air Jordan 5 Jade is set to drop on April 9th ​​for a retail price of $200. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app.

Off-White Nike Blazer Low White and University Red/Black and Electro Green

SNX DLX: Week of April 6
Nike

It’s a bitter-sweet announcement, but this week brings Nike’s first Off-White release since Virgil Abloh’s untimely death, the Off-White Blazer Low. True to Abloh’s form, the Off-White Blazer Low transforms one of Nike’s most popular and vintage-leaning silhouettes into something hyper-modern.

The design features several changes to the traditional Blazer silhouette including an accented over lace, a swoosh tab, the same translucent punched windows from Off-White Jordan 6, and the most radical departure, a jutting TPU heel inspired by Nike’s Air Terra Humara.

It hardly looks like a Blazer anymore, and while this quite frankly pales in comparison to the actual Blazer silhouette, which is as untouchable as the Jordan 1, it’s truly sad that we don’t have Abloh to push the envelope in the daring and unique way that he was always apt to do.

The sneaker drops in two colorways, White and University Red, or Black and Electron Green.

The Off-White Nike Blazer Low White and University Red/ Black and Electro Green are set to drop on April 8th for a retail price of $140. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app.
