Nike ACG Air Mowabb

Introducing Offspring Outdoors. Being active outside has never been more important, so we took some of the Offspring Community across the city for an epic ACG city trail to celebrate the Mowabb’s 30th anniversary.

Community members were pulled all over London, trekking through all conditions, trying to stay ahead by solving clues as quickly as possible.

With members split into two teams, blue and orange, the spirit of exploration and discovery that ACG represents was in full flow. The day reached its peak with an incredible skywalk across an iconic North London landmark.

 

After taking in the breath-taking 360 views of the city’s skyline our community concluded with a daring drop as they abseiled down over 46m. Friendly team rivalries aside, it was a great day for our community to get together and see London from a new perspective whilst embracing the energy of ACG

Air Jordan 4 ‘Shimmer’

Be four. Air Jordan 4, exclusively for Women.

Elegantly delightful, gloriously luxurious. The Air Jordan 4 ‘Shimmer’ is finally gracing us with its beauty.

Representing everything basketball from way back in 1989, this legendary sneaker has now taken streetwear style to level 100. A super diverse design, the 4th Jordan sneaker is suitable for any closet with influence of sport and fashion combined.

Focused solely on ladies, this AJ4 brings all the feminine feels, with the returning ‘Shimmer’ colourway. A delicate combination of natural pastel tones; blushed, golden, and beige.

The creamy nubuck premium leather oozes quality, panels cut and stitched in design. A mixture of materials in various tones and textures glaze the structure, including the iconic netting found on the lateral side and top of the toe box. Fine detail such as the silver-plated metal Jumpman logo drips the padded tongue, a second is embossed on the heel mould. The triangle ankle flaps appear in a transparent TPU material, securing the flat laces. Of course, it wouldn’t be Air Jordan without the exposed Nike Air unit, amongst the tonal soles.

We enlisted the help of the Sneaker Sisterhood, who spoke to us about their passions and tales of trainers. The women’s led team formed in 2019, bringing together ladies from various backgrounds and walks of life together. With one thing in common, the love of sneakers.

Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Starfish’

Ladies, you’re up… The orange-red colour named ‘Starfish’ is now on your favourite OG silhouette. Included in the ‘Shattered Backboard’ collection of colourways, named after the 1985 event which saw MJ himself literally shatter a backboard. This then dubbed the pair he was wearing at the time of the dunk ‘Shattered Backboard’ and influenced a whole series of colourways behind the Jordan brand.

The orange-red, white and black colour scheme is created with smooth quality leather, with perforations across the toe box. A bright white leather base, contrasting orange overlays, black laces and swoosh make this a standout pair. Jordan ‘Wings’ logo appears in a distinctive black, standing out on the beautiful shade of red. The woven Nike Air tag features on the breathable nylon tongue. As usual, the Jordan 1 Low optimises comfort with a lightweight cushion and a contained Air sole unit.

This staple summer shoe is a must for your 2021 collection, a new fresh colourway with ties to the epic history of the Michael Jordan Brand.  

Launching 28/08 in Women’s sizes, Men’s sizes TBC.

Nike Dunk ‘Scrap’

After massive designs and collaborations this year in the form of the Dunk Low, now evolving into a brand-new silhouette – Dunk Scrap.

Made from scraps with the dunk shape relatively intact, slight modifications have been made to the existing structure of the sneaker of the moment. Made with the uppers pieced together with scraps to create the Dunk look, but a bit more DIY. Clad in thicker, but smaller in surface patches over the toe cap and box, heel, and the famous Nike Swoosh. Mesh fabric on the mid-pane, bringing a mix of textures. Additional stitching dresses the upper, uneven cuts of leather layered on top, and suede to reinforce the side panelling.

Available in two colourways ‘Sea Glass’ and ‘Archeo Brown’ the first a lighter-toned and the second a rich and colourful, like a piece of art. The ‘Sea Glass’ dressed in familiar pastel-green tones, this is one beautiful Dunk with added structural aspects. ‘Archeo Brown’, a complete contrast to the other features a brown hue, it comes highlighted with an array of green, purple, yellow, and pink patch overlays. Both feature a white midsole on a gum rubber outsole.

Reebok x Offspring Community Workout Plus ‘Ice’

Celebrating everything community with our collaboration with Reebok, we’re bringing you our edition of the Workout Plus ‘Ice’.

For those who are old enough to remember, the Reebok Work Out “Ice” was a big U.K. trend in the late 90s. Whether it was on the Ripple sole, in a multitude of colours and shades or finding it’s way on other Reebok models, the “Ice” sole was a must have. You’d have people teaming them up with Iceberg jackets and crazy Mosh jeans, it truly was a phenomena that swept up and down the country.

2021 we revisit this look with a few upgrades and additions in true Offspring form. We’ve used a deluxe leather throughout, Community Member taping, dual branded logos on the tongue and side window, two sets of laces and not to mention both logos peering out through that frosty outsole. Personalisation does not stop there, we have added our signature lightning bolt to the back, as well as special addition community taping at the side and double lacing option so you can switch up the laces.

Having enlisted some of our very own community members for the marketing campaign , Shot by our super talented photographer @nineteen.85 (Mark), we asked them what Reebok means to them and how the brand has evolved from everyone’s first shoe at school to now; a streetwear must have. We wanted to encapsulate and evoke nostalgic emotions of fun times with friends.  Whether it was in the park, at the skate rink or just hanging out in the community, Reebok’s rich historic heritage has always been present, and representative of UK culture through the years.

We want this shoe to give you the feeling of those good old memories and whilst you wear it, to make new ones.

In addition to all this we have created special elements to the release. With every purchase we’re giving you ice cubes tray* stamped with the brands logos to keep you cool on those summer days and you will also receive a dual branded community tote bag*.

*While stocks last

For the community, by the community; the Offspring Reebok Workout ‘ICE’.

Launching 26th June.

Nike x Skepta SK Air Tailwind

If you’re a fan of the British grime scene, this is right up your street. You will probably know all about the partnership of Skepta and Nike, both top of their game in grime music and sneakers respectively.

Bringing all the energy in Nike University Red, the synthetic underlays flaunt a digital print. Alterations in the overlays from the Tailwind V included the TPU cage, much like the 5 plus.

Collaboration branding details such as SK Air stamps on the tongue and Air Max on the heel fulfils the retro-inspired model.
