The simple yet premium tumbled black leather of the Jordan 1 BHM ditches the prints and patterns native to Jordan Brand’s usual Black History Month celebration. Instead, the Jumpman added removable and swappable velcro patches on the Wings branding, the Swoosh side panels, and the alternating tongue logos featuring traditional Jumpman logos and Nike’s ‘BHM’ crest. What results is a simple, refined look perfect for any occasion.

Reebok Jacquard Tape Pump Supreme

Similar to other editions of the Pump Supreme, the Jacquard Tape bears the streamlined slip-on silhouette the sneaker is known for. This also includes the reengineered fit sleeve, a feature that brings the foot closer to the knit upper and maximizes the feel and function of the shoe’s namesake Pump technology. The unique twist to this rendition has to be the literal jacquard tape branding that runs along the center of upper as well as the back pull tab—a direct callback to 90’s tracksuits. This throwback nod is also embodied in the upper’s retro all-over mesh, which is different from the main model’s engineered mesh upper.

WishATL introduces New York-based menswear label Rochambeau, whose RTW collection chooses Morocco as the muse for this season. A sense of summer adventure and a flair for traveling weaves through the fabric in the form of motifs and patterns. Successfully combining their signature streetwear aesthetic with the uncharacteristic bright color palette, Rochambeau tells a cohesive story of the “downtown renegade outlaw”, allowing themselves to create a lifestyle that is effectively moving it farther away from its streetwear roots.
