Over the past seven days in the footwear world, headlines have been mostly dominated by restocks and first looks.

Following an unannounced restock last Monday, adidas once again re-dropped its coveted YEEZY BOOST 700 OG “Wave Runner” over the weekend. On the other side of the field, Nike rereleased its auto-lacing Adapt BB in three different colorway options.

In terms of first looks, the rumored adidas UltraBOOST 2020 surfaced along with another Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 in “Yellow” and a red-hued Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low. Furthermore, collaborations from Dragon Ball Z x adidas, KITH x ASICS and jeffstaple x Timberland are also set to arrive soon.

We were also given closer looks at the Nice Kicks x adidas UltraBOOST “Woodstock”, the Michael Lau x Nike SB Blazer Low “Salvator Michael,” as well as an official look at sacai’s newest collaboration with Nike.

Elsewhere, sneaker retailers are trying to elevate their shopping experiences, which has led Bergdorf Goodman and GOAT to collaborate on a rare sneaker installation for NYFW, while Saks Fifth Avenue updated its men’s shoe section, and Nike introduced its first footwear subscription service for kids, dubbed Nike Adventure Club.

Finally, we sat down with adidas to get the details behind the design and cultural impact of its latest streetball collection and we broke down why India could be the next big sneaker market.

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.
