TOWER Family: This week’s family favourites – Vol. 19
Every week, the team at TOWER HQ takes a moment to chop-up everything that has appeared on our shelves over the past seven days. What's the catch? If it dropped and flew, it's already too late! Everything you'll find here is ready to be bagged, stacked and laced-up at a time that suits you. So, in no particular order, here is this week's TOWER family favourites; skewed with our winter editorials in mind! If it can't be worn this season, we're not featuring it.

5. New Balance 302

To birth the 302, New balance took their signature DNA and sat it atop a chunky sole, maintaining their casual-esque upper and contemporary rubberised toe cap that adds a little top-spin to your 'fit.

4. ASICS Gel-Kayano 14

We’re certain that you’re no stranger to ASICS’ GEL-Kayano 14 at this point, in fact, you may even be looking to hunt a pair down at this very moment. Exposed GEL cushioning, panels of wide-set mesh and a palette suited to the everyday - is there anything ASICS can’t do?

Well, here’s some good news. You can now secure your size at TOWER today!

3. ON Running Cloudnova

Asides from taking the title as an award-winning running brand on numerous occasions - 2020 earmarked the year On Running successfully ventured from athletics into that ever-expanding lifestyle industry without compromising on athletic essentials.

When adapting to stationary and sporadic habits deemed common place amongst those working from home, On developed a slightly broader sole-unit to that seen on running-specific platforms. This removed somewhat of a ‘rolling’ motion, instead opting for day-round stability with mouldable spongy sock-liner in tow.

2. Saucony Jazz 81 Cordura

At the peak of ‘80s styling, the Jazz was developed in partnership with leading podiatrist, Frank Santipietro, to take their shot at creating the next perfectly balanced running shoe. Weight was reduced to cater for a ‘Butterfly Balance’ design, Saucony introduced the iconic triangular lug outsole and Santipietro played his ace by sculpting a cosier, ergonomic fit.

Fast forward eight years and Saucony had further developed a follow-up for their signature Jazz. By utilising a similar design with the inclusion of EVA midsole cushioning and TPU heel stability, the Shadow 5000 was a more refined, luxurious version of their Shadow Original.

With a touch of Cordura to keep your toes un-stampable, we advocated of this one...
