On Nike’s end, this year’s drop includes new colorways for the Air Max 95 and a recalibrated take on the Air Force 1. And from Converse, there’s a pair of new takes on the Chuck 70 and the Pro Leather models. Each pair features mixed materials and bold colorblock schemes. The 95s are emblazoned with mesh, suede, and nylon side panels, while the AF1s strip away most lacing holes save for the top and bottom pairs. Converse’s models pull from early-to-mid ’90s streetwear palettes with a patchworked leather Chuck 70, while the hightop Pros offer moss and forest green canvas bodies, both with “BHM” embroidered on their tongues.
