Been a minute, it was all hands on deck here in the shop over Christmas. Less of the excuses though, we're back now and aren't messing about with the Wellgosh Sale.
So, as another little present to you lovely lot - here are some of our favourite shoes that are in the sale, that may or may not be laced with some puns.
When the Nike Streak Spectrum came in it definitely turned some heads, especially in the Melon Tint/Purple colour-way. The Zoom Spectrum blew up when they released a white/flames colour way in collaboration with Supreme, and for good reason - comfy, lightweight and eye-catching, a great summer shoe. Being priced at £40 and also available in purple/green, it's a bit of a no brainer really.
The ever-popular Air Max 97 has hit the Wellgosh sale, this time in the Black/Gold colour-way. Receiving its name from the year it was born (1997). An iconic shoe that draws it's inspiration from the Japanese bullet train - which is why the first model was called the Silver Bullet. It's stood the test of time and has seen successful new colour ways year after year, ever-present.
The first shoe to introduce the hidden lacing system alongside a full length air sole, The Air Max 97 has become one of the most popular trainers in Nike's arsenal. A shoe that has seen so many different variations, such as 2018's Sean Wotherspoon AM1/97, the 97/Tuned 1 Hybrid and the 97 plus.
The Yung 1 fast became an iconic shoe, in what has been a great couple of years for Adidas. We've been big fans of the Yung 1's this year, they've been the choice of kick for a lot of the boys in the shop too.
The Yung 1 is a trainer of the times - a chunkier shape, comfortable and releasing in both clean and vibrant colour-ways. From Core Black to Cloud White, From Hi-Res Orange to the 'Freiza' colour-way of the Dragon Ball Z collaboration, it's definitely earned it's place on the most popular trainers of the year list.
Another shoe in on the list, The Adidas Marathon x I5923 is part of the Never Made collection, which combines famous Adidas trainers from over the years, making for some interesting creations.
This mix-up in particular combines the retro running upper of the Marathon, with the Boost Technology sole of the Adidas I5923. A breathable upper consisting of mesh and suede combined with the boost sole makes for a reliable and super comfy kick.
We've got the entire collection in, in both black and white colourways - all in the sale too, so check them out if this one doesn't tickle your fancy.
The Marathon x I5923 is available here.
Bit surprised this one ended up in the sale to be honest. The Vans OG Era in the Tobacco colour-way goes really with lots of different outfits, which means it's a great option to have all year round!
Padded ankle supports make for a comfortable and supportive shoe, especially with the iconic waffle sole - there's a reason why it has been, and still is one of the most popular skate shoes for decades.
This lovely little number from Vans is available here.
Vans blessed us with the 'Inside Out' pack earlier on this year, and the whole collection was full of lovely shoes from this crazy concept. The Vans OG Authentic get's the inside out treatment, creating an interesting sneaker, a must for any Vans aficionado.
Still keeping everything we all know and love about Vans, such as the leather wrapped design and the iconic checkerboard (except this time it's inside out). The infamous 'Off The Wall' heel tab is also turned upside down. And with a lovely price of £32.50, we're expecting these to fly off the wall sooner rather than later.
The Converse Chuck 70 Hi is up next, arguably one of the most iconic shoes ever, we've got a slightly different interpretation for you this time.
Available in White/Light Fawn, this Chuck 70 features an all leather upper, accompanied by the classic all rubber sole - great for casual wear or maybe even something a little smarter - classic Americana style that will never go out of fashion.
Known as 'The Original Mashup', the New Balance 574 is a shoe that represents both ingenuity and originality. Originally created in 1988 during a time of increased economic freedom in America, this shoe just started turning up on shelves seemingly out of nowhere.
New Balance didn't conform to passing trends at the time, ignoring its reputation as a brand that made trail running shoes, so this was a lifestyle that was a little bit different. Made using premium materials such as suede & mesh upper, alongside subtle gold accents on the heel overlay.
Thanks to collaborations with the likes of Atmos, Nitraid and Undeafeated - the 574 has cemented it's place in sneaker culture.
Asics teamed up with London based brand You Must Create (YMC) to conjure up two really nice colour-ways of the Gel Lyte XT.
Part of the exclusive friends and family collection, this capsule gifted us with the Gel Lyte XT, the iconic lighteweight runner that features gel cushioning, in a lovely Blue/Purple colour way. Using premium materials in the upper, in typical YMC fashion, making for a comfortable and well constructed sneaker.
Last but certainly not least, the Clarks Weaver in White. Not much needs to be said about Clarks, does it? Great, comfortable shoes that will last you a lifetime if you look after them properly, and even if you don't, a little TLC using some Jason Markk can bring them back to life.
The weaver is a wonderful silhouette, the kind of shoe that can be dressed up or down, to suit nearly any occasion. With a crepe sole you need not worry about slipping or being uncomfortable, a tried and tested bit of kit that has stood the test of time. A full suede upper makes for an easy to clean shoe that looks good all year round.
That's all from us, we'll be back with another On The Foot next month, but in the meantime keep your eyes on our Instagram for all of the latest bits and bobs dropping arriving at Wellgosh!
