After taking a first inspection to mixed reactions toward the beginning of the month, here we consider the latest collaboration between UNITED ARROWS & SONS and adidas Originals. The two brands worked to revive the Master silhouette – previously described as a “Gramps-approved” update to the Stan Smith silhouette. The description isn’t far off, but maybe some parties will appreciate the ease, casualness, and uncluttered minimalism that the Master so embodies. The upper is done up with plush, pristine white leather, contrasted by beige hits and a special ampersand logo embossed at the heel. The UNITED ARROWS & SONS x adidas Originals Master is available now here.
June’s a big month for the Jumpman with Jordan Brand bringing back the iconic Military Blue Air Jordan 4 on Saturday the 9th. While 2012 is
all about the 23rd anniversary of the AJ4, there’s plenty of other retro heat on the table with the Obsidian Air Jordan 12 and crisp canvas AJKO right up there on this month’s must-have list. If performance is more your thing then Chris Paul’s CP3.V will unleash the beast on June 7th in
a lucky Year of the Dragon colourway. There’s also Air Jordan Phats, a Son of Mars, V.1 vulc and a couple of Fly Wade 2 EVAs for your consideration. See the official June release list below thanks to Jumpman 23.
