MADNESS x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star
Release Date: October 15-17 (raffle)
Release Price: N/A, via MDNSonline.com
Hong Kong’s MADNESS connects with Converse on a pair of half-and-half Chuck Taylor All-Stars.

The sneaker maintains a tonal theme joined by contrasting white midsoles, laces and circular CTAS logo.
John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1
The latest release from John Elliott and Nike comes in an all-white colorway that subtly hides its intricate details. The collaborative Air Force 1‘s standout features are the double tongue, repeated lacing eyelets, cut-away Swoosh, and cascading lace tips.
Air Jordan 33
The Air Jordan 33 leaps into the future with a new laceless flagship sneaker. With pull tabs on the tongue and heel for easy entry, the midfoot area of this NASA-inspired design features a pull cord to lock you into the sneaker rather than a traditional lacing system.
Nike LeBron 16 “King”
The Nike LeBron 16 “King” is inspired by the African meaning of his name. This model features a “Team Red” upper with metallic gold accents and a heel counter that sports pony hair — a reflection of James’s inner animal.

Release Price: $100 USD/each, available via alife’s NYC shop and alifenewyork.com
Alife and PUMA will release a collaborative take on the Clyde. The low top model arrives in “Forrest Green” and “Navy” options featuring a smooth suede upper and white side stripe. Alife’s red box logo is added to the heel area with gold PUMA Clyde branding at the quarter panel and “New York” printed on both tongue tabs.
Air Jordan 10 “Air Huarache Light”
The latest Air Jordan 10 colorway is inspired by the original Air Huarache Light runner, a model MJ sported during his quick baseball stint. As always, MJ’s list of accolades return to the outsole in alternating orange and white stripes.
Sneakersnstuff x Reebok DMX Run 10
Release Date: October 19
Release Price: $150 USD, available via Sneakersnstuff locations
