Once upon a time, Nikeadidas and other sneaker brands would bless us with coveted releases once, maybe twice a month. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for different footwear labels to drop multiple pairs of heat in just one weekend. Making your cop or drop decision as easy as possible, we continue our weekly roundup of the most sought after silhouettes for the week. Check out the list below and chime in on the styles you’ll be picking up.

adidas Tubular Rise

adidas Originals

Release Date: September 14
Release Price: N/A, via select adidas Originals retailers and online

adidas continues the wave of Tubular models with the upcoming Rise sneaker. Resting atop the line’s traditional thick sole unit, you’ll find suede materials on its midfoot, which complements its entire Primeknit upper. The Three Stripes provides a contemporary look to this iteration thanks to its integrated lacing system and the EVA texture found on its midsole. Tan coloring coats the entire sneaker, providing it with a monochromatic aesthetic.

Nike KMTR Premium

Release Date: September 14
Release Price: $150 USD, via select Nike Sportswear retailers and online

The unique looking KMRT model is back from Nike in “Velvet Brown” & “Dragon Red” colorways. Staying true to its original form, a buckle covers the midfoot for stable lockdown, while the upper is covered in water-resistant material. Rugged rubber makes its way onto the outsole for enhanced traction on various surfaces, while its bungee-cord adjustment returns to its heel.

adidas Tubular Doom Soc Primeknit

Release Date: September 14
Release Price: N/A, via select adidas Originals retailers and online

The adidas Tubular Doom Soc Primeknit takes a much simpler route as it’s presented in black, and light tan color options. Its thick sole unit presents a wavy pattern throughout in support of its Primeknit upper. A simple lacing system is added to its sock-like upper while a heel counter and tongue tab are added for easy access in and out of the sneaker.

Nike Kyrie 3 “Mamba Mentality”

Nike

Release Date: September 15
Release Price: $120 USD, available via select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike SNKRS

Previewed via his very own Instagram, Kyrie Irving’s collaborative Nike Kyrie 3 holds deep inspiration from Kobe Bryant’s “Black Mamba” moniker. Dubbed the Nike Kyrie 3 “Mamba Mentality,” the black, yellow and red color combination is just the beginning, as snake patterns found on a number of Kobe models make their way onto Irving’s third signature sneaker. As the newest member of the Boston Celtics, it’s sad to say that we may not see Kyrie rock these this upcoming season, but that shouldn’t stop you from adding the pair to your own personal collection.

BILLY x PUMA Suede Classic

Release Date: September 15
Release Price: $183 USD, via BILLY’s official webstore

Celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary in 2018, the PUMA Suede sneaker has received a makeover courtesy of Japanese retailer BILLY’S. The collaborative pair says goodbye to the sneaker’s laces and places intricate stitching instead, converting it to a slip-on model. Additionally, you’ll find a rubber sole and co-branded insoles to complete the joint design.

Solebox x PUMA Blaze of Glory “Champagne” Pack

Solebox

Release Date: September 16
Release Price: N/A, via Solebox

Berlin’s own Solebox teams up with PUMA for a special “Champagne” Pack. Using the Blaze of Glory model, you’ll find two options that hold inspiration from the look of luxury liquor. While one dons grey and pink coloring, the other keeps things simple as its black upper is contrasted by green and a striking glow-in-the-dark outsole.”Rosé Pink” and “Champagne Grape Green” are the calling cards of each iteration respectively, as the latter is a mid-cut Blaze of Glory while the other remains a low-cut.

Virgil Abloh x Nike “The Ten”

Release Date: September 9-13 (Pre-release)
Release Price: N/A, available in New York via NikeLab 21M and Dover Street Market via The Draw

Following the “OFF CAMPUS” pop-up in New York City, the time has arrived for the pre-release of Virgil Abloh’s collaboration alongside Nike. Ahead of its complete launch slated for November, those who successfully entered The Draw will be able to purchase silhouettes from the collaboration’s “REVEALING” pack, which includes the Air Vapormax, Blazer, Air Jordan 1, Air Presto and Air Max 90 models.
