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.
ACRONYM® x Nike Air Presto Mid Utility “Presto Corporation” Pack
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”
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
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”
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 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”
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.
