Editor’s Notes: Nike’s new Air Max collection draws inspiration from Japanese convenience stores. The capsule includes four designs: an Air Max 95, Air Max 97, and two colorways of the Air Max 90, each decorated with different design elements that point to specific items found in the aforementioned shops. The Air Max 95, which will be available exclusively in Japan, boasts magazine print on the upper and incorporates a rubber strap, referencing the rubber band that holds the magazines located in convenience stores across Japan. The Air Max 97, with its transparent print that looks like a drop of water, is a nod to convenience store jelly. And lastly, the Air Max 90s are associated with rice balls and chicken, featuring a rice-printed insole on one pair and a depiction of the paper-like material that holds pieces of chicken on the other. The lottery for the convenience store-inspired Air Max sneakers begins March 13 through atmos.

Boasting a coffee-inspired off-white, grey, and white colorway, the collaborative court sneaker is done up in premium leather with suede overlays and incorporates a distinctive buckle fastening.

Where to Buy: Salomon

Editor’s Notes: Salomon draws inspiration from one of its more beloved trail running shoes, the SPEEDCROSS 3, for an all-new sneaker, called the STREETCROSS. The silhouette takes the grippy outsole of the SPEEDCROSS 3 and is then equipped with the brand’s patented Quicklace lacing system, as well as a durable toe cap and mudguard. Currently available on Salomon.com, the STREETCROSS is being marketed as a reinterpretation of the SPEEDCROSS 3 for the city.
