After another seven days, and another year behind us, we return with the highlights from Highsnobiety’s shopping channel, carefully put together by our very own commerce content curator, Nigel Minani. After trawling through countless online stores, Nigel is here to give you a much-needed dose of retail therapy, boasting a selection of the latest and best in streetwear, sneakers, fashion, and lifestyle products. For more of the most up-to-date shopping news, be sure to hit the button below.
Setting off your 2019 on the right foot, Nigel’s selection is filled to the brim with winter essentials, soon-to-be grails, and something for the more refined of tastes. Featuring a bevy of heavy-hitting Nike silhouettes, including footwear up-and-comer, Brandblack, this week’s must-shop roundup goes on to feature products from the likes of Converse, Kapital, the legendary Mark McNairy, RIPNDIP, and many more.
So, without further ado, we’ll let Nigel take it away, giving you a brief, piece-for-piece rundown of this week’s killer selection. And be sure to let us know in the comments if you plan to cop any of the items below.
“Here’s a new brand I haven’t quite figured out yet, but its cut & sew pieces give me a warm, almost home-like feeling. This corduroy shirt has to be my favorite piece from the collection. It looks like something you’ve lost a long time ago, forgotten, something you loved, one of your favorite pieces and all of a sudden you found it in the very last corner of your closet. There it is, and the love is as strong as it was the first time around.”
“Tie-dye & heavy graphics are definitely on the come up for ’19. Here’s a really dope Alien-inspired one to get you in the mood.”
“Anwar got to add a little Marc McNairy to his staple hoodie. Very nice, and something that promises to bring a little warmth into the grey everyday life of the ensuing colder months.”
“Converse had a really good run last year, and there seems to be no sign of that slowing down in 2019. To cement this, they’ve kicked off the new year with one hell of piece! Patchwork panelling, mixed with furry pastels? These are fire; you shouldn’t sleep.”
“Salomon’s XA Alpine just got the murdered out update c/o TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. This might be the best fashion-forward sneaker I can think of. If it wasn’t for the price-tag, I would have bought it already. I guess I’ll have to sell at least two pairs of OFF-WHITE Nikes for these.”
“By now, everyone should’ve noticed that SB is back, and it’s back big time! During the golden era of the early 2000s, people slept on many grail-worthy colorways that are now worth a pretty penny. And the pair featured above could be one of those slept-on pairs that end up hitting the big time… just saying.”
“Another really amazing grail on the list that I suggest you don’t sleep on… again!”
“I’m usually really against any new, upcoming sneaker brands, because most of the time their designs seem too similar to the game’s veterans. With the Brandblack Kite Racer, it somehow works, drawing inspiration, but managing to put enough of a twist to it to make the design unique. And besides, you can’t really go wrong with a ripstop upper and a Vibram sole unit. If you’re into exploring new things, far off the usual traces, this is your chance.”
“Kapital’s slowly on the come up, and if you’ve slept on the Japanese brand so far, here’s your chance to get familiar. The price-tag might hurt your wallet, but that’s the price you have to pay for hand-knitted garments made in Japan.”
“The coldest part of the winter season is yet to come, brace your head (and ears) with this Polartec hat by UK skate brand, Palace.”
“One for the collectors AND skaters! One of the nicest cruiser decks that released recently. Well done Noah!”
“A cute little pin is the best way to highlight any outfit, and Betty Boop is no exception!”
“Treat yourself after the exhausting holiday season, and brace yourself for a turbulent start to the new year.”
“If you always wanted to own a Parra (not signed unfortunately), here’s your chance to buy into the Dutch artist. He’s deeply rooted in the European sneaker and streetwear scene, and you can’t fill a Top 10 Nike Air Max List without dropping his name. Get familiar if you haven’t already.”
“The perfect ashtray that reminds you that you wanted to quit smoking in 2019… good luck!”
As always, much of this product is limited, so if you missed out this time, be sure to tune into next week’s roundup for a selection of more hot products.
