Welcome back, everyone. Another week and another long list of exciting footwear releases. But before we get into that, let’s have a look back on the last seven days of news.

Last week’s collection of drops included Nike’s “BETRUE” range, a reflective pair of black YEEZY 350 V2s, and the fan-favorite UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak pack. What’s more is that Vans & Billy’s sneaked in two luxe variations of the Era and Slip-On that featured gold jewelry, while Jerry Lorenzo and team surprise-dropped the Air Fear of God 1 in a summer-ready “Sail” colorway.

On the collaborative front, adidas introduced a Toy Story 4 collection, New York clothier AWAKE NY delivered a first look at two GEL-KAYANO 5 360 colorways, and Matthew Williams announced the release of his latest joint effort with Nike. Any maybe most surprising of them all, The Hundreds revealed an Osiris D3 that is set to drop later this month.

Virgil also had a hell of a week, which included the release of his long-anticipated Air Force 1 for MCA Chicago and the emergence of never-before-seen “The Ten” samples on display at his latest art exhibition.

Lastly, on the business side, Kawhi Leonard filed a lawsuit against Nike for unlawfully claiming his “KLAW” emblem.

With last week’s news out of the way, we now 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.

 COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Shox TL “Black” & “White”

Release Date: June 11
Release Price: TBD
Where to Buy: CdG flagship stores in Paris and London
Why You Should Cop: This is the first fashion house to reimagine the all-new Shox TL retro, making it an unprecedented release. What’s more is that they come wrapped in a summertime-appropriate Cuban link chain.

Nike Air Max Plus “Color Flip, Black”

Release Date: June 11
Release Price: ¥1,199 CNY (approximately $173 USD)
Where to Buy: In select Asian markets at select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Mismatched sneakers rarely look good, but these Tuned Airs are wonderfully done, and feature trendy shades of neon hues. These are big head-turners.

Nike Shox R4 “Black Glow”

Release Date: June 11
Release Price: ¥1,299 CNY (approximately $187 USD)
Where to Buy: In select Asian markets at select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Let’s be honest here, Nike’s Shox R4 revival hasn’t been as anticipated as we once expected. OG colors have sat on shelves, but this model looks darn good, with just enough pop against a black base. Even more so, the “Black Glow” refers to its iridescent and reflective upper.

Supreme x Air Jordan 14 Pack

Release Date: June 13, June 15 for Supreme Japan
Release Price: TBD
Where to Buy: Supreme flagship stores and SupremeNewYork.com
Why You Should Cop: You’re going to either love or hate these, there’s no in between. But if it helps, these stud-filled AJ15s are inspired by a look MJ sported while sneaking out the backdoor of a Bulls practice during his first retirement, sparking rumors of his eventual return to the NBA.

Nike Air Max 90 “Python Pack”

Release Date: June 13
Release Price: $140 USD/pair
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Ahead of the AM90’s 30th anniversary, Nike retros the once-super-coveted black-and-white “Python” Quickstrike sneaker from 2003, and to sweeten the pot, it adds a green version. If you missed out way back then, here’s your chance to make up for lost time.

adidas Originals Temper Run “Pride”

Release Date: June 13
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: Select adidas stockists, adidas flagship stores and adidas.com
Why You Should Cop: While Pride Month packs often feature the signature rainbow color array, this Temper Run sports a welcomed pastel take on the LBGTQ+’s community’s trademark flag.

Air Jordan 4 Flyknit “Red” & “Blue”

Release Date: June 14
Release Price: $220 USD/pair
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: You’ve got to be a BIG AJ4 fan to add these tonal Flyknit options to your arsenal, otherwise, it’s hard to see how these will be a popular pickup.

Nike Air Max 90 “BETRUE”

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: While the 720 was the standout model from this year’s “BETRUE” collection, this AM90 isn’t far behind, thanks to its near-perfect color-blocking and multicolored, layered Swoosh. More layered Swooshes, please.

PATTA x Air Jordan 7

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: PATTA’s very-PATTA take on the AJ7 is finally getting a global release, and, if our memory stands correct (feel free to hit the comments section if not), this is the first collaborative take on the AJ7 since the Doerbecher initiative. Don’t let these get away from you.

YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 “Tephra”

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: $300
Where to Buy: Select adidas stockists, adidas flagship stores, adidas.com and YEEZYSUPPLY.com
Why You Should Cop: Another week and another YEEZY release. What sets this colorway apart from other 700 drops, is the contrasting yet complementary gum-colored outsole beneath the grey-gradient upper.

Air Jordan 8 “Quai 54”

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: £164.95 GBP (approximately $210 USD)
Where to Buy: In European markets at Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Nike and Jordan Brand continue their yearly Quai 54 initiative celebrating France’s basketball culture with yet another Air Jordan release, and maybe the best yet — don’t @ me.

Reigning Champ x ASICS Kyoto Edition Pack

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: TBD
Where to Buy: Select ASICS/Reigning Champ stockists, Reigning Champ flagship stores, ReigningChamp.com, Select ASICS flagship stores and ASICS.com
Why You Should Cop: This is the first of what will be many city-inspired packs from Reigning Champ and ASICS, and if this clean take on the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG is any indiction of what’s to come, we’re in store for some heat from the two sportswear experts.

Nike Air Max Tailwind 4 “Spirit Teal” & “Ghost Red”

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: $160 USD/pair
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists, Nike flagship stores and Nike.com
Why You Should Cop: The Tailwind 4 is another one of those love ‘em or hate ‘em models, but for the former, these two summer-time options will surely become those everyday kicks you leave by your door.

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 360

Release Date: June 15
Release Price: $149 USD
Where to Buy: Select ASICS stockists, including SNS, ASICS flagships stores and ASICS.com
Why You Should Cop: Speaking of everyday kicks, you have to consider the all-new GEL-KAYANO 5 360 as your next choice, and these colorways will have you laced through summer and fall.
