Release Date: September 20
Release Price:  $200 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers, Nike SNKRS and StockX (Racer Pink, Dynamic Yellow, Cool Grey)

The ACRONYM® x Nike Air Presto Mid Utility is back in full force as the next installment from the duo sees a wider release; back in August, the trio surprisingly released via Nike SNKRS. The new selection of colorways keeps the same design from the original three thanks to a zippered ankle entry and new graphics at each model’s lacing cage.

Nike LeBron 16 “Fresh Bred”

Nike

Release Date: September 20
Release Price:  N/A, available via select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com

New team, new sneaker. LeBron James kicks off his first season as a Laker with the new Nike LeBron 16. The “Fresh Bred” colorway is applied to a new Battle Knit 2.0 upper, which rests atop visible Max Air units, akin to the LeBron 15. The Jason Petrie-designed model also features a leather gusseted tongue for easier entry and larger styling options.

adidas Originals Yung 96

Release Date: September 20
Release Price:  $100 USD, available via select adidas retailers and adidas.com

adidas’ Yung 96 sneaker welcomes new colorways after releasing in black and white options. The sneaker’s nostalgic blueprint lies within its thick midsole, while its upper sees a mix of suede and mesh layering. “Carbon/grey-solar yellow,” “clear brown/cloud white-crystal white” and “clear brown/off white-solor green” joined the aforementioned duo to build up its current selection.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Triple White”

Release Price:  $220 USD, available via select adidas retailers, YEEZY SUPPLYadidas.com/YEEZY, and StockX

The adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 is returning once more to close out summer. Its “Triple White” iteration sees a white Primknit upper atop a white BOOST midsole and translucent outsole. Lastly, a subtle white side-stripe blends with the rest of the pristine upper.

Nike SB Dunk High “Humidity”

Nike

Release Date: September 22
Release Price:  $110 USD, available at select Nike SB retailers and Nike SNKRS

Nike SB adds another celebratory drop to its long list of releases as the Dunk High commemorates New Orleans’ oldest skate shop, Humidity, and the city’s tricentennial. A metallic gold upper mirrors the same shine of a brass horn, while a purple velvet inner lining nods to the inside of the instrument’s carrying case, all reminiscent of the Gibson Guitar Dunks from’08. Music notes are found within its translucent outsole, with a removable red bowtie lace accessory as the final touch.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Pine Green” & “Court Purple”

Release Date: September 22
Release Price:  $160 USD, available at select Jordan Brand retailers, Nike SNKRS and StockX (“Pine Green” & “Court Purple“)

The Air Jordan 1 will soon sport ”Pine Green” and “Court Purple.” Similar to the classic AJ1 “Black Toe” color scheme, the aforementioned colors are added to the ankle, heel, toebox and outsole. Tumbled leather is found throughout its upper to finish off its premium look and feel.
