After stopping off in Hawaii, Samoa and Tahiti for the first leg, the Island Series is set to take us to Jamaica this Thursday. Previously the Jamaica has been one of those shoes that's annoyingly hard to come by but sensing the demand adidas have wisely reintroduced the shoe in 1:1 form. Originals fans will note the authentic colouring and high quality materials whilst anybody with a passing interest in the brand will appreciate the retro appeal of this timeless classic.
Sizes UK6-12 including half sizes will be available priced at £75. The adidas Originals Jamaica is set to launch at 00:01GMT Thursday 30th July.

A Tribe Called Quest's unique brand of alternative hip hop has stood the test of time and from solo spin offs to the group's untouchable body of work, they deserve their place in the hall of fame.

Although the Air Huarache is never out of the limelight these days, few modern issues can rival the beauty of this OG rendition. The 'Sport Turquoise' is undoubtedly one of the most prominent colourways in the shoe's history and real aficionados will be pleased to see that this is an almost 1:1 reissue. As is the case with all noteworthy Huaraches, these are backed by some serious hype so it's very much a case of fastest finger first when it comes to these launching online.
Limited numbers available from 00:01GMT Friday 24th July. (£90)
Adding superiority to the iconic Stan Smith, Raf Simons has considered a number of new colourways to continue the collaboration. Perhaps the simplicity comes from the designer's background in industrial design as the tweaks are subtle and refined, only adding to the shoe's timeless appeal. Swapping the perforated Three Stripes, Raf Simons gives them an R with Stan's face on the right shoe and his own on the left. RAF SIMONS embossing can be found towards the heel which serves as a finishing touch to this beautiful partnership.
Two colourways will be available online in the coming days and are now available in-store.
