From high-performance running shoes to street inspired kicks, we’ve rounded up some of the hottest sneaker launches in town.
#1 Asics Gel-Quantum Infinity, $289
The latest addition to the Gel-Quantum series, the Infinity features a seamless one-piece upper and full-length gel cushioning system for comfort and flexibility.
“I wasn’t keen on the material initially; it felt a bit hard and didn’t appear to be breathable. The soles feature the brand’s new gel technology, and at first I didn’t think they were that bouncy, but once my feet had warmed up, the shoes fitted really well. There’s also great support for the arch of the foot. The colour scheme is cool, too!” – Rebecca Bisset
#2 New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr V2, $159
Equally suited for high-impact sports and everyday wear, this ultra-light number boasts a laser-engraved midsole for plush cushioning and a Hypoknit upper for a dynamic fit.
“I really like the fabric and colour combination. However, I felt that the foam was not as supportive or bouncy as normal trainers. They are still fantastic and light though, so I like to take them with me when I travel. On my first try, I thought they were going to be too narrow and uncomfortable, but they have grown on me and I really like them now.” – Rebecca Bisset
#3 Reebok Aztrek 93, $139
A major throwback to 1993, these fun runners feature retro inspired colours and details. We’re crushing on the collegiate royal with white colour way.
#4 Cole Haan Zerogrand All-Day Trainer, $259
Designed for a seamless transition from office to gym, these performance -first kicks are undeniably stylish. Cole Haan’s proprietary leather heel chassis and Stitchlite upper ensure durability and stability during workouts.
