After an eventful week filled with collaborative drops, it appears that things are going to cool down a bit with regards to this week’s sneaker releases. That hasn’t stopped the footwear industry from swirling with news however.

The biggest headline of last week goes to NBA rookie sensation Zion Williamson, who signed a 7-year deal with Jordan Brand valued at $75 million USD. If the details are correct, Williamson’s deal becomes the second largest contract ever signed by a rookie athlete, followed by LeBron James’s $90 million USD, 7-year deal in 2003. Nike also revealed its latest cushioning system, dubbed “Joyride,” which was then met with a lot of backlash from the environmentally conscious for its use of TPE beads in the underfoot.

In terms of first looks, pro-skater Eric Koston stepped out in a pair of Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Lows dressed in the same colors as Michael Jordan’s alma mater. We were also given a first look at OFFSPRING and Converse’s upcoming Chuck 70 pack along with images of a white-colored sacai x Nike Blazer Mid and Vivienne Westwood’s ASICS GEL-Saga.

Elsewhere, the GOAT Sneaker App officially launched in China, while Nike’s rare “Moon Shoe” shattered the world auction record for sneakers, having sold for an astonishing $437,500 USD.

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.
