Extended hightop sneakers were the big trend of early 2009. Supra Skytops and Nike Air Yeezys were on everyone’s tongues and a lucky few’s feet. As we look forward to the cooler months, we’ve seen a new and equally striking trend emerging in the tendency toward mis-matched pairs of sneakers. It started with the outrageous SWAGGER Terminator and now we see a mashup between Japan’s atmos and Ubiq on the Amir hightop. This sneaker is the best of both worlds, adding asymmetrical accents to a black upper of achilles-eating height. The right shoe goes with purple and pink, the right with green and yellow. These and co-branded nylon jackets will drop next month at atmos.
