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.

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.

The American plant-based designer and owner of LA Vintage Store ‘Round Two’, Sean Wotherspoon is known throughout the sneaker world for his previous designs such as the Super Earth Superstar and his previous endeavour with Nike.
This huge statement shoe from adidas Originals is a completely vegan-based design. Sustainability pushed even more with the recycled materials, working together to form a patchwork design. Created from using as many recycled materials as possible. Saving the planet, one shoe at a time.

Nike Air Max 90 ‘Bacon’

Nike Air Max 90 ‘DQM Bacon’ 
Bacon sandwiches on the plate and Air Max on the feet for the #offspringhqcommunity on a special Air Max Day. The wait is over – it’s been 30 years since the legendary AM90 and one year after the rumored release date. Dave’s Quality Meat rendition of the Air Max classic is back and it’s hitting the spot.
Dave Ortiz’s butcher themed New York-based street wear shop created this recipe of the perfect bacon-inspired colourway. Served up on Air Max Day. Regarded as one of the most sought after themed Air Max, the prime cuts of reds and pinks with fatty beige and crispy browns imitate the bacon rasher. All smoked on premium leathers and buttery suede. Aged since 2004, with its streaky laces, this design is Top of the Chops in sneaker culture.

We’ve asked the members of the community to upload a picture of the ultimate bacon/turkey bacon/plant bacon roll or sandwich you have made. We wanted to see the feast with you in an Air Max model and we were not disappointed! Although the raffle is now closed, we urge you to see the many creative takes on this by checking out #offspringhqSandwichroll

CONVERSE X OFFSPRING

The Converse x OFFSPRING collaboration has brought all the heat this month. The latest Chucks to be released have paid close attention to detail, history and the passion of the OFFSPRING community. The designer behind this shoe is Aman Tak, Senior Buyer at OFFSPRING. Tak reached out to the community to contribute to this design, this was shared via a competition to design a unique patch to be sold with the shoe. (Please take note the patches were gift with purchase alongside the launch in store only)

‘When it came to designing this shoe, we wanted something premium. That’s why the aesthetic is clean, it’s cream, it’s black, there’s a lot of discovery elements to the shoe. If you pick up the shoe you won’t necessarily see them all first time, but when you look at the tongue or the toe, there’s a lot of hidden details ‘ Aman Tak

The two silhouettes were sold in store and are now available online. The latest designs hold a special place within OFFSPRING, as we have a produced a product that is community and design focused, whilst collaborating with an iconic brand, Converse.
