Proper Picks: Gear of the Week 10th – 17th June

Summer really hasn’t started yet has it? It’s been grey and wet for the last few weeks and shows no time of letting up any time soon. It’s all a bit… shite.

In the meantime though, before it finally does get hot, it does give everyone a little more time to get their clobber in order. So whether you’re lacking a few more bits of summer footwear, need some suave and stylish tees or just want to spend money out of boredom, we have you covered. Again. Here’s our gear of the week…

Reebok Classics Slice
£55.00, Reebok (Released 15th June)

The Reebok Slice is the epitome of timeless, a low-cut shoe designed for the tennis court but equally at home just about anywhere else.
Freelancers Running Club T-Shirt
£25.00, Everpress

This limited edition tee from illustrator Josh Parkin is up there with one of the best tees of 2019 so far. Whether you’re runner, want to give off the vibe you are or just like nice gear to wear down the pub, then pre-order one now.
Yeezy Boost 700 v2 Vanta
£325.00, Laced.co.uk

Some more sound Yeezys. While they’re usually a little too hype for Proper HQ, this black colourway is certainly something we can get onboard with. Don’t wear these with white socks though, or you’ll look like the rest of them.
Armor Lux Classic Orange Tee
£30.00, Working Class Heroes

No one quite compares to Armor Lux when it comes to high-quality summers tees. The nice high neckline that doesn’t droop after one or two washes make Armor Lux the go-to, as well it’s the mint colours.
Novesta Vegan Trail MARATHON
€109.00, Novesta

Vegan-friendly, built for all types of terrain, perfect for the summer and mega with shorts? Mad how Novesta just keep getting it right. These come in about 10 different colourways too.

Nike Air Tailwind BeTrue
£90.00, Oi Polloi

Made as a part of Nike’s ‘BETRUE’ collection celebrating Pride month, these have been tastefully updated for 21st century escapades with sleek textile uppers and suede details, as well as some classic Nike trimmings like the el classico foam tongue and their revered Waffle outsole.
ARHTO Bam Jacket
£185.00, ARHTO

Probably the stand-out release of the second part of ARHTO’s second collection, the Bam Jacket has it all. The texture and hand feel of a velvety premium corduroy, with reworked minimal styling and a big boxy fit.
adidas OZWEEGO
£89.00, END Clothing (Raffle ends 19th June)

adidas has again delved into its archives for its latest offering, the adidas OZWEEGO – a trainer ready for “a space age, 90s rave”. More trainers your dad will hate, but they’ll look mega with shorts.
