Exclusive | Puma Archive “Terrace” Pack

This Autumn we have teamed up with Puma to release an exclusive collection of 4 archive silhouettes in some classic colourways.



Some may remember the birth of “terrace” fashion back in the ’70s/’80s, originating in the North of England amongst football fans. The look started when football fans started following their teams around Europe often coming back with trainers that weren’t available in the UK, therefore giving them one up on their mates. This obsession with European sportswear soon took hold with fans across the country and the birth of the casual “terrace” look was born.


Often suede with clean lines and slim soles, the terrace trainer has remained a classic and favourite amongst football fans through the generations. Nowadays the look isn’t quite as bold as it once was as the new generation haven’t quite brought back the shell suit jacket.




The Puma Archive pack is releasing the Roma (1968), the Trimm Quick (1970), the G. Vilas (1970) and Court Star (1980) and all stay true to their roots with the distinctive terrace aesthetic.


The pack with launch online and in-store this month, stay tuned for updates and follow @offspringhq.

Nike Air Presto “Island Blue”

Back in the day the Nike Air Presto was one of the most worn Nike trainers and now this iconic silhouette is fully making a comeback.


Designed by Tobie Hatfield, the Nike Air Presto was developed as a response to the overprotective running shoes of the 1990s. Created as a kind of T-shirt for the foot, with a unique XXXS-XXXL sizing structure and an elastic upper that hugged your foot.The slim design comprised a loose elastic upper and thin plastic lattice on the shoe’s sides that held the laces. Its minimalism and snug support made it a favourite of both runners and collectors. The updated Presto brings back the shoe’s revolutionary approach to fit, comfort and sizing with a stretchy upper, plush cushioning and moulded midfoot ‘fingers’.



Following on from the releases of the “Brutal Honey,” “Lightning” and “Unholy Cumulus” colourways, Nike is releasing another classic style from 2000, the “Island Blue”. This sock fit trainer features a mostly blue upper with flashes of white sat atop a signature white and blue sole unit.

The Nike Air Presto “Island Blue” launches on the 5th September and will be available online and in-store.

Anatomy of Air: Air Max 95

This year marks 20 years since the iconic Nike Air Max 95 was released, which quickly became a fashion symbol of the 90’s.



A History

This classic Nike trainer took sneaker design to a new level as the designer Sergio Lozano took the human body as his source of inspiration. The silhouette used elements of the body as its template for the make up of the shoe. The midsole represented the spine, the graduated panels were the muscle fibres, the loop holes and straps were the ribs and the mesh was the skin.

The OG colourway was presented in black, neon yellow and white and featured minimal Nike branding, with a small Swoosh on the outer heel. The neon yellow emphasised the 3 visible AirSole units and the technical appearance of the shoe gave the impression of a serious running trainer.

20th Anniversary




Recently we saw the release of the Anniversary pack featuring the OG, Jacquard and Greedy colourways, released to celebrate this classic trainer and put it back on sneakerhead’s minds.

Coming Soon


This Thursday sees the launch of the Air Max 95 “Pure Platinum”, which features a metallic silver upper etched with a laser cut design and icy blue features on the sole. It will be available to buy online here and in store on the 20th August.

This year is definitely the year of the Air Max 95 and we can’t wait to see more releases of this old school classic.
