Week after week, sneaker brands–known and unknown–release new models, colorways, collaborations and retros to continue the stirring of sneaker culture’s melting pot. The competition has risen over the years with the introduction of new technology and the use of celebrity influencers, thus presenting an even larger variety of selections for sneakerheads and casual shoppers alike.
UNDERCOVER x Nike React Element 87 Collection
The highly-anticipated UNDERCOVER x Nike React Element 87 pack will release in four colorways. The futuristic design sees translucent uppers, contrasting stitching details, reflective 3M accents and Nike’s React foam cushioning system. Jun Takahashi’s take on arguably the best new sneaker of 2018 solidifies its cult-like following.
Nike Air Max Deluxe “Multicolor”
Release Date: September 13
Release Price: $180 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS
This edition of the Air Max Deluxe features a neoprene upper dominated in black with streaks of red, blue and neon green throughout. The sneaker’s signature dotted-line pattern appears in black 3M reflective threading, while a bronze-tinted heel tab adds a subtle contrast to the upper. Rounding out the look is a classic white Air Max midsole with a full-length black Air unit and outsole.
adidas Originals YUNG-1 “Triple Black” & “Triple White”
The old school-inspired adidas Yung-1 gets the “Triple Black” and “Triple White” themes. Each upper juxtaposes mesh, leather and nubuck materials, while resting atop a thick rubber outsole. adidas’ Three Stripes motif is blended into the lateral and medial sides with its Trefoil logo added to the tongue.
adidas YEEZY BOOST 700
This rerelease marks the third time fans will have a shot at copping the adidas YEEZY 700, following drops in March 2018 and November 2017. Its original design remains intact, including the thick sole unit, layered upper, an orange and green color scheme and more.
Air Jordan 13 “Oak Hill Academy”
This version of the Air Jordan 13 honors Carmelo Anthony‘s days at Oak Hill Academy. The high school basketball powerhouse holds an impressive range of alums, such as Melo, Kevin Durant, Brandon Jennings and others. Here, the school’s signature red, black and yellow color scheme is incorporated onto the AJ13 silhouette, with the majority of its upper and toebox done in black, while the midsole and heel areas feature a contrasting yellow. Red is added to the tongue’s Jumpman logo and outsole pods for the final touch.
Nike Air Max Deluxe “Triple Black” & “Triple White”
“Triple Black” and “Triple White” expand their respective selections with the addition of Nike’s Air Max Deluxe. This duo follows last week’s collaborative release alongside Skepta with monochromatic themes. Each iteration features a full-length visible Air Max unit and reflective 3M detailing along a neoprene upper.
Air Jordan 18 “Color Pack”
The Air Jordan 18 makes a long-awaited return. While it may not be the “OG” colorway you’re hungry for, Jordan Brand gives fans of the silhouette an three-part appetizer to hold them over. Racer Blue, Rrange and Ochre kickstart the AJ18’s comeback, with the black/sport royal version expected to arrive this fall.
Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Mid
The Off-White™ x Nike Blazer returns with the “Grim Reapers” color theme. Its deconstructed aesthetic stars oversized Swoosh logos on both lateral and medial sides, sample-like stamps, exposed linings, and orange tabs on the aforementioned checks.
