By Gerard Flahive Monday 14th Mar, 2016

With the completion of February comes the promise of spring and its warmer, fair conditions. Inspired by this promise, here are our favourite February sneaker releases, perfect for the coming months:

NikeLab Roshe Daybreak x fragment – £110

NikeLab Roshe Daybreak x fragment

Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fragment Design is no stranger to Nike collaborations, with previous efforts including takes on the Sock Dart and Tennis Classic. Here he draws inspiration from Nike’s ground breaking 1979 runner, the Daybreak, and updates the design with the Roshe LD-1000 upper, delivering a stylish sneaker with nostalgic appeal.

Adidas Consortium x Wood Wood Ultra Boost – £129

Adidas Consortium x Wood Wood Ultraboost

This monochromatic take on the ever-popular Ultra Boost, by Danish streetwear powerhouse Wood Wood, is updated with an altered take on the Three Stripes cage and sees the addition of rope laces. The sneaker dropped in limited numbers on 27th February at select Adidas Consortium retailers, so you will need to be quick to snap up this much-hyped sneaker.

 

New Balance 997 ‘Explore by Sea’ – £155

New Balance 997 'Explore by Sea'

As part of the ‘Explore by Sea’ collection, New Balance combines a well-executed, coastal inspired cool grey colour way with a premium suede upper, to produce a quintessential everyday sneaker.

Y-3 Retro Boost – £230

This electric blue colour way of the Retro Boost, from Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, combines a breathable micromesh base upper with a cushiony Boost sole, to deliver a sneaker that delivers both supreme comfort and style.

Nike LunarEpic Fly Knit – £150

FEIT Hand sewn Low – £372

FEIT places strong emphasis on construction technique and the quality of materials used in this ‘neoluxury’ interpretation of the classic court sneaker.  Handcrafted from pure calf leather, with a suede finish, this is a minimal sneaker for all occasions.
