Kicks Flow: Nike Air Max 1 "Acorn"

Seasonal kicks are something that just make sense. And we at AA are starting to really dig a lot of the pairs we’re seeing lately. The concept might come off a little corny, but if the kicks themselves are done nicely, there’s no way you can front on them. Slippery slope, yes, but when executed properly, there’s no denying a great seasonal shoe.

Nike continues to fully embrace the seasonal themes with the introduction of this Nike Air Max 1 “Acorn.” Presenting a very fall-friendly look, this take on the sneaker staple features a white mesh base paired with Light Bone leather paneling and lightly textured Ale Brown for the mudguard and Swooshes. The look is then finished with touches of white for the laces, more brown for the inner lining and Air unit, and black for the branding back at the heel. 

These are actually already available overseas at select shops, including Footsell, you’ll have to wait a bit for these to drop here in the States though. Until then, stay tuned to AA, as we will definitely drop updates as they come to us. 


Fly Season: atmos x Timberland 6-Inch Premium Boot “Wheat Camo”

NY footwear staples just seem to be everywhere nowadays. Things that spoke to the streetwear aesthetic of yesteryear in the world's best city, seems to have stretched to every corner of the globe now. That definitely says a lot for how influential and stylish New Yorkers have always been, but also to how brands have taken notice and continue to feed that power with really dope products.

So for the holiday this year, Japanese retailer atmos has once again gotten together with Timberland. They kept it clean and classic this time around, just giving the iconic wheat Timberland 6-Inch premium boot a small design update. While most of the boot remains close to the original, atmos added a camouflage detail on the ankle support. 

A camo atmos branded hangtag and matching shoebox are also part of the collaboration, which you can pre-order now from the retailer.

Kicks Flow: New Balance 990 “Ski Retro”

There was a point in time when we were starting to feel like we were kind of responsible for the resurgence of certain models of kicks. We were probably not all that responsible, but we just like to believe we were. One of those brands that we championed and just saw blow back up, was New Balance. If you’ve been hanging with us for awhile, you know how much we love NB and rep it all day. And that love won’t be stopping anytime soon, especially since they continue to drop kicks like the one we’re about to get into right now. 

Taking inspiration from vintage ski garb, New Balance serves up a new take on the 990 silhouette. The well-appointed color scheme utilizes high quality leather and suede in shades of blue and light brown, while made-in-USA quality helps to further loft up this execution. New Balance branding hits appear de-bossed on the heel and stitched into the tongue. Availability is being offered through retailers like Feature for around $220 USD.

Kicks Flow: Nike Air Huarache Utility "Triple Black"


It happens to me almost every time I hit the closet for a dark pair of kicks…the wondering if I have a dope black pair to throw on that would match with everything. For whatever reason, all-black kicks are something that I’m short on these days. I used to love them as a kid because I wanted whatever wouldn’t get dirty quickly. But as you get older, you’re a little better with keeping your kicks fresher and all. So the ever-elusive black pair has continued to be an issue, until now. 

After recently releasing a murdered-out take on the Air Trainer Huarache Low, the Swoosh is back with a new “Triple Black” release of the Air Huarache Utility. The pair boasts a monosock design, being comprised of leather and synthetic materials. 

A jagged outsole provides for enhanced grip with each step, while the lone offset on the shoe comes in the form of dotted designs alongside and at the forefoot. The Air Huarache Utility “Triple Black” is available now at select Nike stockists.
