Once of the latest Kanye West releases. And it must be said, they are actually quite nice when compared to the other Kanye West creations such as the Red October! They are basically an all-in-one design which see’s no separation between the upper and the tongue.
The uppers are a grey-black Primeknit, which have a middle seam and a nice hook at the heel. The ribbed sole is kitted out with Adidas Boost technology so should provide an nice comfortable wearing experience.
They also have a little black half circle on the upper that has the Adidas logo on one trainer and “YZY” on the other. Nice trainers that were quickly sold out due to all the hype. Best bet if you want to snag a pair that are up for sale is eBay but prices are super high.
Expect to pay from £400 – £750 for genuine pairs, and beware of the cheaper buy it now auctions are there will be fakes floating around.
Adidas Spezial trainers are special trainers. They are at the cross roads as far a price is concerned. Adidas “Handball” Spezial are situated nicely in-between the cheaper priced Adidas and the much more expensive pairs of Adidas. They are one of the best choices as they look superb, have tons of style, and won’t break the bank. There also quite hard-wearing and look good with so many clothing styles, casual or sporty. Colour ways are many and impressive. Check out this grey suede pair with a gum sole below.
This style is a little more harder to come by so it sells out very fast. The most common pairs have either the white sole or a darker brown sole. When people were going crazy looking for a pair of Limited Edition Adidas Ardwick I said then to save your money and buy a pair of Adidas Spezial for a fraction of the price. Of course, the Spezial are not as collectable but they look just as good if your buying them to actually wear.
There are other grey suede examples of Adidas Spezial but they mostly have a white sole, and although still nice trainers, don’t really look as good, or as quality as these. Dare I say it, some pairs look a little cheaper. Another nice example, but minus the gum sole, are the Collegiate Navy with green trim and white sole pictured above. The Olive, white and orange are nice too. Both pairs are available in sizes from UK 7 to UK 12.
As a side note, another great pair of trainers available right now are the Adidas ZX700 with the cord style side upper. They have been featured on this website before but now they are up for sale in many more colour ways, including green (Cargo), blue and black. Blue pair are pictured above. Priced between £40 – £80 dependant on size and colour.
If you’re looking for a cheap pair of boat styled casual shoes that are from a great brand that consistently delivers on quality footwear then read no further. It’s not necessary. Go and buy yourself a pair of CAT Alec Boat Shoes for £10 before they are all gone. Well, it’s also £5 delivery so in all you are paying £15 for a pair of CAT Alec delivered, which is an excellent deal that shouldn’t be missed.
These shoes are just perfect for smart casual wear. They are a boat style moccasin with a mostly thin, smooth suede upper. The remainder is a rough cut canvas. CAT Alec are available in quite a few colours, but the only colours that are £10 are the ones pictured here, which are the Grey (Pictured below) and the light Brown (Shelter Soil) above.
These colours are available in sizes UK 6 to UK 11. The other colours, Espresso and the dark brown leather pairs are £35. Still a fairly cheap price for a nice pair of Caterpillar casual shoes. However, for the pairs pictured above to be getting sold for a tenner is crazy cheap, and definitely the cheapest you are going to get unless you buy a used pair!.
Doing the rounds on the bargain table this week are the Reebok Classic Rayen M42726 Trainers. In Cherry Red! They have an air of low profile retro-ness about them that kind of sets them apart from the other cheap Reebok Classics currently on sale, such as the white Reebok Badge (V60243) (Also £22.99), and the blue Classic Jogger (V55493) trainers (£24.99).
And for £22.99 the Rayen are a worthy winner of the “Best cheap pair of everyday wear trainers for under £25 that don’t look the same as all the others” competition.
Mostly all buyers of these trainers have stated they are better than they expected them to be. But be warned, you better be sure you want a cherry red pair of trainers because one reviewer said they are a bit more brighter than in the pictures. People are snapping these trainers up fast. Adult UK size 10 and 11 are now sold out. They start at a UK 6.5 and go up to a UK 9.5 with all half sizes in between available.
Are words even needed when it comes to the Climachill Cosmic Boost.. These trainers not only look superb, they also have everything required to be considered as one of the best pairs of summer trainers available. Yes they are a running shoe, but for the running side of things it would be wise to go for the Ultra Boost instead. The Climachill Cosmic Boost are far too good-looking and unique to be running in.
But in saying that, they are the ultimate running shoes, and if you can afford to buy a pair just for running then go for it. They are super lightweight, fit like a pair of socks, and the uppers are mostly all Primeknit, but with a layer of mesh underneath. They are one of the best pairs of trainers for foot breathability. They even have a mesh air compartment in the middle of the sole (See Picture below) that allows air to enter the shoe from underneath. They are so breathable that they are not recommended for wet conditions for obvious reasons.
They are available in various colour ways. Some are considered as Women’s, but in all honesty almost all pairs look unisex, this pair included. And also the Solar Blue and Flash Green colour ways. I mean, have you seen some of the multi-coloured Asics that are out there of which everybody wears regardless of whether they are for men or women.
Both sexes wear them and no one bats an eyelid, so it’s safe to say that the Cosmic Boost are acceptable footwear for anyone really. Of course, the fit will probably be a little different but just buy a size up or a size down to cater for the difference. The Climachill Cosmic Boost are a highly engineered, top quality pair of Adidas. Read more about the Ultra Boost.
