With so many hyped kicks dropping each and every week, countless gems are bound to fly under the radar. With that in mind, we’re highlighting a few of our favourite sleepers. Check out the full list below and look for them all now via SneakerHub.

Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2

There may already be a newer version of Nike’s flagship VaporMax silhouette, but we’re still partial to the Air VaporMax Flyknit 2. Not only does it feature a segmented, perforated heel counter that’s far more unique than that of its successor, but it also sports sleeker branding. By placing the Swooshes closer to the heel on the upper, Nike made the kicks look even faster than either the 3 or the OG. This multicoloured pair is one of the best of the bunch, and showcases the various patterns that appear throughout the shoe’s Flyknit upper.

Karhu Fusion 2.0

Karhu have long been the pride of Finland, and the Scandinavian favourites have always done well to channel their Nordic roots into their sneaker designs, incorporating mountaineering-style details like heavy-duty lacing grommets, nylon lacing loops, and a healthy dose of reflectivity. The Fusion 2.0 is always a standout from the brand’s line of classics, and this Lunar Rock/Pureed Pumpkin colourway showcases expert-level colour-blocking. The kicks keep things even more classic with a stark white midsole and gum rubber outsole.

New Balance 997H

Of the various 997 overhauls, the 997H is New Balance’s most accessible, pairing an ever-so-slightly streamlined version of the beloved 997 upper with brand new tooling. This ‘Deep Ozone Blue’ colourway is one of the go-tos of the silhouette’s standout OG colourways, and would be right at home amongst Miami’s art deco architecture, on the couch watching Miami Vice, or traversing the local city streets.

PUMA Thunder Nature

When chunky, retro-inspired dad sneakers first made a comeback, PUMA were ahead of the pack when it came to reimagining the styles of old. The Thunder still stands as a good example, packing old school style and decidedly modern design cues into one slick must-have package. The Silver Grey/Whisper White/Cloud Cream ‘Nature’ offering is the perfect entry point into the trend, juxtaposing the shoe’s bold look with a timeless combo of neutral hues.

Reebok Revenge Plus

Reebok’s most recent Revenge Plus offerings have once again elevated the mid-80s kicks to must-have status, resurrecting the Club C’s original name to go along with timeless OG colourways. The black/white/gum option, complete with a tumbled leather upper and matching suede toe cap is an easy choice. It’s an all-timer, and one that anybody can rock with ease.

White Mountaineering x adidas Terrex Fast GTX

Japan’s White Mountaineering have always been experts when it comes to marrying form and function, and the brand’s collaborations with adidas are no different. Amongst their latest Three Stripes offerings is the Terrex Fast GTX. As the name suggests, this rugged trail-ready high-top is not only packed full of features like breathable mesh construction, seamless overlays, speed lacing, and heavy duty tooling, but even features a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane.
