Last week was yet another busy week in the world of footwear, headlined by a digital renaissance of sorts. Most notably, Nike announced its new fit scanning technology–Nike Fit–with hopes of helping consumers find their “perfect” shoe size. Meanwhile, GOAT delivered an augmented reality update to its app that lets users experience unreleased sneakers in the kind-of-real world.

Elsewhere, on the collaborative front, we delivered a comprehensive on-feet look at the new sacai x Nike collection, while Supreme premiered its latest Vans drop with diamond-plated graphics. More surprisingly, New Balance dropped a limited edition, two-part footwear capsule with Kawhi Leonard that sold out immediately, and a leaked photo of adidas’ newest Pokémon collab emerged.

Lastly, this weekend adidas began teasing its Kid Cudi partnership just as Cudder-stan Travis Scott and his Air Jordan 1 was selling out on–and crashing–the SNKRS app.

Now with a new week ahead of us, we present the latest installment of our weekly drops list, showcasing what’s to come from your favorite footwear brands. Take a look at the list below and let us know what releases you’re looking forward to.

Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Air VaporMax 2019

Release Date: May 14
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS App, and select NikeLab retail locations on May 14; CPFM site will see a release on an undisclosed date; and a final drop event at DSM London on May 16.
Why You Should Cop: It’s the brand’s first-ever collaborative sneaker, and it’s a darn good one, from the painted-on smiley face to its Play-Doh-like Swoosh. Sneaker of the year contender? Absolutely.

Nike Kyrie 5 “Friends”

Release Date: May 16
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: If you’re a Friends fanatic, you may never see another thematic sneaker release again. Or it’ll be another 20+ years.

sacai x Nike LDWaffle “Del Sol” & “Green Gusto”

Release Date: May 16
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: Select retailers around the globe, including sacai flagship stores and SNS, with a wider release on the SNKRS app scheduled for May 30.
Why You Should Cop: sacai’s fun, double-layered take on a Nike classic will surely be your summer go-to; it’s bold, bright and comfortable, perfect for everyday wear.

Nike Zoom Vomero 5 “Silver Pack”

Release Date: May 16
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: Despite its distinct dad-on-a-Sunday-jog vibes, the Vomero is a well-cushioned sneaker that surprisingly looks better on feet. Don’t sleep on these.

Nike React Presto “Psychadelic Lava” & “Breezy Thursday”

Release Date: May 16
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: Hybrids can be real hit or miss, but the React Prestos have been wearing on us. They may not be your first choice for a vibrant summer sneaker, but they won’t disappoint your wardrobe either.

Nike Air Fear of God Raid “Black/Fossil”

Release Date: May 17
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: For Fear of God fans who didn’t pull the trigger on the Air FOG 1 or the Shootaround silhouettes because of their hefty price tags, the Raid may be a solid compromise. Or maybe you’re a huge Raid–or Tim Hardaway–fan.

Nike Air Fear of God Moc “Black Fossil” & “Particle Beige”

Release Date: May 17
Release Price: $170 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: As the cheapest of the four Fear of God x Nike models, we’re not particularly mad at these, but we can’t really imagine them being a fan-favorite. Nevertheless, they’ll still look great on the summer boardwalk.

GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse “Quilted Velvet” Pack

Release Date: May 17
Release Price: TBA
Where to Buy: Converse.com and select retailers around the globe.
Why You Should Cop: Tyler really knows how to play with materials and colors, and we can tell you that these beauts look and feel better in person. Be wary of how they’ll wear over time however, as that velvet exterior may not handle the summer elements very well.

Rick & Morty x Diadora Pack

Release Date: May 17
Release Price: $120-130 USD
Where to Buy: Exclusively at select Foot Locker locations and FootLocker.com.
Why You Should Cop: Are you a Rick & Morty fan? Do you like second-tier sneaker brands? Then these were made for you.

Converse All Star Pro BB

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: Exclusively at Converse.com with a global release to follow in June.
Why You Should Cop: This one’s for the hoopers who enjoy wear-testing new models. The All Star Pro BB is Converse’s first performance hoops sneaker in years, and it’s worthy of a chance. It may not be your go-to, but you won’t mind the lightweight construction, top-notch traction and clean design.

Nike Zoom GP “Cosmic Bonsai”

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: €150 EUR
Where to Buy: At select global retailers, including SVD.
Why You Should Cop: If for whatever reason you have an affinity for ’90s-era basketball sneakers, this Gary Payton signature may just be your steeze.

adidas Originals LXCON & Osweego “Era Pack”

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Select adidas Originals locations, adidas.com, and select global retailers.
Why You Should Cop: With their bold coloring and adiprene soles, either of these modern-retos will be a clean addition to your collection.

adidas Originals Lexicon OG

Release Price: £99 GBP (approx. $130 USD)
Where to Buy: SNS and select global stockists.
Why You Should Cop: For fans of the OG ’90s runner, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Nike PG3 “NASA”

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Nike.com and SNKRS app, and select global stockists.
Why You Should Cop: The sneaker industry is far from concluding its love affair with all things space, and this PG3 nails the classic white and gold NASA color scheme.

Commonwealth x Vans Era & Slip-On Pack

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Exclusively at commonwealth-ftgg.com.
Why You Should Cop: Commonwealth has been contributing to the wold of streetwear for 15 years now, making this Vans collab very long overdue. The retailer went for a simple makeover with its first Vans drop, calling it “an exercise in subtle detailing, blending inspirations from the art world, military, and current events.”

Patta x Air Jordan 7

Release Date: May 18
Release Price: TBA
Where to Buy: Patta’s London and Amsterdam locations, and webstore on May 18. The collection will then hit the SNKRS app and select global retailers on June 15.
Why You Should Cop: There aren’t too many collaborative AJ7 models that come to mind, so this one will surely rise in value, especially with its very Patta redesign. If you’re a big fan of either, the AJ7 or Patta, these are a must cop.
