5 Sneakers To Watch Out For The Weekend of June 25th

Got some good ones this week


What’s up sneaker family! Hope everyone is having a great refreshed week so far. Summer is officially in full swing, which means our shoe game has to be impeccable as we go about our summertime activities. As usual we have a roundup of five weekend sneakers that you should consider checking out if you are looking for a new pickup, and it's a good selection of sneakers to choose from this go-round if you ask us. Let’s jump in and see what the sneakerheads are talking about this week.

1. Nike Air Force 1 Low Swingman

Release Date: 6/25

Paying homage to Ken Griffey Jr. and his father Ken Griffey Sr., the “Swingman” is a baseball take on a classic silhouette, and one of those sneakers that are “simple,” but still dynamic in their own way. If you know anything about Ken Griffey Jr., then you know his swag was effortless. He never tried too hard, and his style and persona have always been reflected in his sneaker releases. The color of this shoe is similar to the Seattle Mariners team colors, and you can pick these up via Nike.

2. NERF X Pump Omni Zone II Light Jammer

Release Date: 6/25

If you grew up in the 2000s like myself, then this is a major throwback. Anytime I see anything NERF related, I automatically think of those Y2K Nickelodeon commercials, and playing outside during the summer. I guess since we are in the summer season, this is the perfect shoe to bring back the nostalgia, or pass down if you have children so that way they can experience the joy of your own childhood. The sneakers are covered in neon green and orange, and can apparently glow in the dark which is super cool. It may be the kid in me, but I think these are super dope. NERF and Reebok also have other colorways dropping this weekend that are worth checking out as well.

3. Nike Dunk Low WMNS Candy

It seems like we are getting all of the vibrant colors, patterns, and nostalgia this weekend, which I’m not mad at all. Some of us have had luck hitting on Dunks this year, while others (I.E myself) haven’t had much. Perhaps the tide will change with these? Either way I like these shoes a lot! Named “Candy,” the sneakers have a blend of what personally reminds me of cotton candy. I also think you could play around with the laces to customize the shoe to your liking if you are a “swap the laces” kind of sneakerhead. You could definitely experiment with light pink laces, and even try teal, baby blue, or variations of any of the colors included on the sneaker. This is a perfect carnival shoe in my opinion.

4. Ishod Wair x Magnus Walker Nike SB Dunk High

Release Date: 6/25

Magnus Walker doesn’t need an introduction. In addition to being a renowned designer, Walker is also an avid car collector, and is now teaming up with Ishod Wair to bring a vintage early 1970s high top inspired by his 1971 Porsche 91, which was nationally recognized in his Urban Outlaw documentary. These shoes are smooth, and I’ve always found 70s racing culture to be interesting. An underrated feature on this collab is the slight “dusty” (in a good way) look of the shoe. It makes you feel like you are actually at a race, and I like sneakers that capture that real time element.
