In today’s market, you can always count on a steady stream of sneaker releases to satisfy any and every sneakerhead. Many of us are pretty familiar with the major releases, mostly due to constant promotion and celebrity endorsement deals, but what about those general release silhouettes that fall off the radar just a bit? Well, we have got you covered. Last week we shed light on some sleepers from Vans Vault, Nike, Reebok and New Balance, this time around we highlight some drops that may have went in one ear and out of the other.

Air Jordan 7 “Olympic Alternate”

Paying homage to the original Air Jordan 7 worn by MJ during his Dream Team days, Jordan Brand has placed yet another twist on the Olympic-themed smeaker. This year’s colorway sees a brighter Deep Royal Blue and Fire Red, while its former navy-colored tongue is now white to complement its laces. Noticeable changes can be seen within its transitional color change from white to red on its midsole as well as Deep Royal Blue added to its paneling on both lateral and medial sides. The Air Jordan 7 “Olympic Alternate” is expected to release on August 6 for a retail price of $190 USD.

adidas Skateboarding Lucas Premiere ADV

This low profile silhouette is the signature model for adidas’ team rider, Lucas Puig. Dubbed the Lucas Premiere ADV, its durable makeup is comprised of black suede with adidas’ iconic Three Stipe logo on each side. An adiTUFF reinforced toe is incorporated for increased durability during those strenuous skate sessions. The black/white colorway of the adidas Skateboarding Lucas Premiere ADV will officially release on August 1 at select retailers and online for $75 USD.

Nike Blazer Studio QS Pack

The Swoosh’s Blazer silhouette has been around for what seems like forever. Seeing an endless amount of upgrades over the years, the model is back with another twist. The Nike Blazer Studio incorporates premium leather as well as cork material for its insoles. Offered in black or off-white options, the pack is finished off with waxed laces and a white sole for a subtle contrast to its upper.The Nike Blazer Studio QS Pack will hit shelves on August 12 for approximately $130 USD at select Nike retailers.

ASICS Gel-Kayano Trainer

Part of the “Moon Crater” Pack, this rendition of the ASICS Gel-Kayano Trainer sports different shades of Dark Grey. Its support system lies in its beige midsole that provides a contrasting look from its upper. Throughout its upper you’ll find a mix of synthetic and suede materials that complement one another. Retailing for approximately $145 USD at select retailers such as afew.

Nike Free RN Flyknit

The Swoosh will make its way to the medal stand in commanding fashion at this year’s Olympic Games. Nike’s Free RN Flyknit silhouette will be the official silhouette used when USA and Brazil receive their respective hardware. There’s no confirmation if this eye-catching volt colorway will be used across the board, but we can expect the Flyknit based silhouette to be seen pretty frequently alongside possible special PEs (player exclusives). The pictured Volt edition is set to release on August 6 at select retailers and online.
