The next Off-White™ x Converse installment sees a white canvas upper with the traditional Off-White™ industrial stamp on each medial side. Contrasting black and white stripes are added to the midsole as a nod to the fashion house’s use of geometric branding. Finally, the famed zip-tie makes its way back into the mix in red.

Nike Air Max 97/BW

Release Date: October 10
Release Price:  $170 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

Tinker Hatfield’s Nike Air Max BW design from 1991 joins forces with the Air Max 97‘s sole unit. The last time we saw this hybrid was back in May when Nike teamed up with Skepta. This week sees the model release in two colorway options of Metallic Silver/Persian Violet-White and Black/Metallic Hematite with Air Max branding on the heel to complement Swoosh logos on the lateral and medials sides.

Air Jordan 18 “OG”

Nike

Release Date: October 11
Release Price:  $225 USD, available via select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

Originally released in 2003, the Air Jordan 18 would be one of the last models we’d see MJ wear on the court during his time with the Washington Wizards. The “OG” colorway shares black and “Sport Royal” color blocking with premium suede incorporated onto its futuristic-looking upper. A foldable shroud covers up the traditional lacing system that’s emblazoned with the signature Jordan branding for a final touch.

Nike React Element 87

Release Date: October 11
Release Price:  $160 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

The Nike React Element 87 series continues with three new colorways. Previously released in collaboration with UNDERCOVER, the silhouette welcomes “Total Orange,” “Neptune Green” and “Solar Red” to its growing selection. The design’s translucent upper is met with contrast stitching, 3M reflective accents and subtle branding on the tongue and heel.

The next Tom Sachs x Nike chapter contains a pair of the Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers stitched into an inner layer, covered with waterproof Dyneema material for increased warmth. The external bag is fastened by a tension cord and secured into place with magnetic buckles that can also be rolled down when indoors, enhancing breathability. The winter appropriate sneaker is balanced atop a rugged SFB sole unit in icy blue and nicknamed the “March Yard” for New York’s inclement weather.
