SNEAKER RELEASE SPOTLIGHT: OCTOBER 2022

September 28, 2022

New releases for October are all about the sole, big soles to be exact. Oversized soles can do everything from dominate a sneaker for a larger-than-life look, to provide that extra cushion you need for your long-distance run. If you're considering a lace swap rope laces can be the perfect pairing for the latest sneakers, with a sleek look and practical design.

If you're looking for sneakers that say go big or go home when it comes to cushioning, check out the latest releases coming up below and find the rope lace swaps that can take these sneakers to the next level.

Nike Air Max Scorpion “Phantom”

Long known for its ability to provide state-of-the-art cushion, the Nike Air Max's latest release is in Scorpion “Phantom”. The woven cream uppers come with dark grey accents on the swoosh and light yellow on the pull tab. Color really comes into play with the outsized sole, which almost seems to glow with the addition of yellow. 

If you want to let the yellow on the soles keep the focus, try a Charcoal Grey Rope Laces swap to pick up the swoosh color, but break up the cream up top.
