The BAE Bulletin: Here's When & Where to Shop This Week's Best Releases
Sneakerheads, this one’s for you.
As we settle into the midst of summer, it seems like everyone is on vacation. If the Instagram stories that are just a constant real of your friends chilling out poolside are getting you down, why not treat yourself to a brand new piece for your wardrobe instead?
This week’s BAE Bulletin is pretty sneaker-heavy, so all you trainer lovers out there will have plenty of options to choose from. Nike is releasing its Air Max 270 React in a vibrant new hue as well as its more subdued Air Moc made in collaboration with Fear of God. adidas is teaming up with Pharrell Williams once more, this time on a Solar Hu pack in “Greyscale” and if designer shoes are more your thing, you have to check out the Concepts x Versace Chain Reaction sneaker in green. While there are notably less beauty drops than in recent weeks, Glossier fans can get their hands on the brand’s logo hoodie soon – just the thing you need for those cooler summer nights.

This coveted collab between Swoosh and Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo debuted in three colorways this spring and are already showing as sold out on Nike’s own web store.

The laceless construction is combatted with an elastic strap on the midfoot, a snap button closure on the side and a toggle on the heel for a superior fit. The slightly elevated midsole adds to the chic look and of course, subtle Fear of God text branding is embossed on the lateral side of the midsole.

The Air Max 270 React has been one of Nike’s most eye-catching silhouettes to land recently, thanks to its panelled upper and large Air Max bubble. This version definitely isn’t for wallflowers; its green, blue and coral detailing ensures you’ll stand out from the crowd. The mixed-material upper combines a translucent TPE fabric with foamy elements, giving the silhouette some real depth. Rounding out the look is watermelon-colored Air Max cushioning and an aqua outsole.

Completing the silhouette is the bulky white midsole – this one’s a must-cop for those who are after a slice of fashion history.
