Odell Beckham Jr. and Nike continue to release lifestyle sneakers that are easy rotation favorites. The upcoming collab from the Cleveland Browns wide receiver touches down onto the Nike Air Max 720 Slip which is a more accessible model as the Swoosh continues to deliver a great product for everybody. The upcoming colorway reps the Dawg pound with the use of black and a deep orange. The Air Max 720 could very well be one of the comfiest developments from the Swoosh. As it now features an easier way to get the pair off and on, you’re definitely not going to want to miss out on these.

Converse is celebrating Black History Month with a classic tandem. Whether you’re a devoted sneakerhead or just an everyday shoe consumer, we can all agree that the Converse Pro Leather and the Converse Chuck 70 are monumental sneakers as the pairs have transcended from the courts all the way to its present lifestyle use thanks to its adoption into the world of fashion and streetwear. The Chuck 70 features a combination of leather and other materials for a great use of color blocking that stays true to the silhouette with a slight twist. The Pro Leather is simplistic in its ways with a two-toned upper with a pop of color thanks to the lace combo. Both pairs are perfect to add to the rotation while honoring Black History Month.
