Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit, from $239 to $269, by Nike.

Nike’s popular Air Force 1 shoes, first launched 34 years ago, just got a whole lot better — and lighter. This latest update sees the iconic shoe with a new Ultra Flyknit upper, making it half as heavy as and much more flexible than predecessor. Plus, it comes in a super huat shade of red.

The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit is exclusively available at the Nike boutique at #01-07/11 Shaw Centre. 

’Tis the season to dress to impress your relatives, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise style over comfort. With numerous families to visit, and crowded tourist spots like Chinatown and Gardens by the Bay to conquer, sky-high heels won’t just be impractical; they’ll be hell to walk in.

Save your feet from potential blisters — here are some unconventional (think non-heeled) and incredibly comfy kicks to take you from place to place this Lunar New Year.
