While last week starred a number of basketball-ready footwear drops courtesy of Nike, the Swoosh also had to battle with some negative press after reports surfaced identifying the Adapt BB’s malfunctioning issues with Android smartphones.

The week also saw the launch of RHUDE’s new sneaker line, a Beavis-adorning adidas Matchcourt, and the end of an era with the closing of Payless stores around the States. We also finished the week with a closer look at the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, a sneaker that is still waiting for a proper release.

With a new week ahead of us, our weekly drop list continues as we showcase releases to look for from your favorite brands, curating the most hyped releases and strongest silhouette/colorway combinations that should not be missed. Take a look at the list below and let us know what launches you’re looking forward to.

Nike Air Max 95 Premium QS “Mt. Fuji”

SBD

Release Date: February 26
Release Price:  N/A, available exclusively at select Nike Sportswear retailers in Japan

Nike’s Air Max 95 portfolio expands with a Mt. Fuji-inspired theme. The AM95’s premium makeup adds a sail-hued upper that’s joined by an eye-grabbing mix of navy and grey, mimicking the picturesque mountain.. To top things off, the Swoosh’s signature “Just Do It” slogan dominates the lateral and medial sides in a contrasting black font, while the sole unit features white, snow-like speckles, a detail that matches the dotted laces.

Balenciaga Triple S “Neon Green”

Balenciaga

Release Date: February 26
Release Price:  $995 USD, available at select Balenciaga retailers and Balenciaga.com

The latest colorway of Balenciaga’s Triple S sports a bright neon green base with foam and mesh materials. Leather details complement the toe box, medial and lateral sides, heel, as well as the lacing areas. The rest of the upper is met with an enlarged 3-layered outsole that sports a translucent base with a translucent rubber near the midsole.

adidas Originals Nite Jogger “Core Black” & “Cloud White”

Release Date: February 28
Release Price:  $140 USD, available at select adidas retailers and adidas.com

adidas ushers in more colorways of its Nite Jogger, including ”Core Black” and “Cloud White” options. Boasting reflective details throughout, each pair adds a combination of mesh and nylon ripstop materials atop a BOOST midsole.

GYAKUSOU x Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo Pack

Release Date: February 28
Release Price:  $200 USD, available at select NikeLab locations and Nike SNKRS

For their next installment, Nike and UNDERCOVER designer Jun Takahashi have applied a unique toggle lacing system to the Zoom Pegasus Turbo. Additionally, each reworked upper welcomes a dynamic overlay pattern with GYAKUSOU branding on the toe and Swoosh logos at the midfoot area. Reflective 3M hits framing the vamp areas complete the collaborative pairs.

Air Jordan 1 Low Slip WMNS “Chicago”

Nike

Release Date: March 1
Release Price:  $100 USD, available at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

The revolutionary Air Jordan 1 sees a contemporary makeover exclusively for women. Shared in the iconic “Chicago” colorway, the low-cut opts for an easy access slip-on design in lieu of a traditional lacing system. Additional details include reflective accents, and the outward display of interior production tags on the tongue and heel areas.

atmos x Nike LeBron 16 Low “Safari”

Nike

Release Date: March 2
Release Price:  $175 USD, available at select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike SNKRS

Following its debut during All-Star Weekend, the atmos x Nike LeBron 16 Low “Safari” looks to open up March with a bang. The model’s original Battle Knit exterior is swapped out for a selection of layers with the popular “Safari” print on its mudguard. Additional layers include suede and a rippled neoprene towards the ankle. The aforementioned orange upper is complemented by black accents on its laces and zipper closure.

adidas Originals Powerphase ”Cloud White” & “Ecru Tint”

Release Date: March 2
Release Price:  $110 USD, available at select adidas retailers and adidas.com

The last time adidas released a batch of Powerphase models, the silhouette was dropped under the YEEZY umbrella.
