Labor Day has arrived, which means summer is over and now most of us need to turn our attention to back-to-school garbs. Before we share the best footwear options releasing this week, let’s take a look back on the biggest headlines from the past seven days.

In terms of first looks, Brain Dead founder Kyle Ng teased the brand’s upcoming A.P.C. footwear collection, while Hiroshi Fujiwara showcased a new Fragment x Nike Zoom Fly 3. We also got a look at the upcoming adidas YEEZY BOOST V2 “Hospital Blue,” UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90 , three colorways of the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low, and Nike Basketball’s Air Zoom UNVRS.

Elsewhere, a better look at the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack” surfaced thanks to Stadium Goods, and Nike added FitAdapt self-lacing technology to the Huarache. Forbes also released a list of the biggest NBA shoe deals, which Michael Jordan topped.

In more dire news, Vogue believes the footwear industry may be funding the Brazilian forest fires, while over 200 companies banded together against President Trump and the increased Chinese import tariffs.

Finally over the past week we brought you a bevy of original content, from sitting down with Tetsu, Chris Gibbs, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon to delve into the importance of the Vans Era to chatting with the legendary Z-Boys on why the aforementioned silhouette is skateboarding’s most iconic shoe. Additionally we caught up with Knicks rookie RJ Barrett on his PUMA signing and NBA goals.

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.
