Before we jump into the best-of-the-best in footwear releasing this week, let’s recap the last seven days in news. Among the boldest of headlines, Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods’s “Ultimate Sneaker Collection” auction sold for a mind-blowing $850,000 USD, while Arizona Ice Tea and adidas’s chaotic 99-Cent sneaker release was quickly shut down by the NYPD.

For release date news, we discovered 2004’s Air Jordan 4 “Cool Grey” will finally make its return 15 years later on August 1. Kyrie Irving also revealed his entire SpongeBob collaborative sneaker collection as well as the release date for the first two colorways, which includes Bob and his best pal Patrick. Elsewhere, Converse and Chinatown Market unveiled an all-new UV-manipulated Chuck Taylor, a friends & family Parra x Nike SB Dunk was leaked, and Clarks revealed a befitting Wu-Tang Clan partnership.

Lastly, K-Swiss crossed over into the realm of gaming to announce the first-ever performance shoes for eSports athletes, a sneaker that was designed in partnership with Counter Strike and Overwatch experts Immortals Gaming Club (IGC).

Now with a new week ahead of us, we present the latest installment of our weekly footwear 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.
