Summer vacation is over which means back-to-school season is in full swing. But before we turn our attention to the latest must-have 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, LeBron James debuted the Nike LeBron 17 “2K” dressed in a regal purple colorway via social media, while a potential third colorway of the forthcoming Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low surfaced. We also got glimpses at the upcoming UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90, the Air Jordan 4 “What The” and Nice Kicks x adidas UltraBOOST “Woodstock” in black.

As far as industry news is concerned, the sneaker world was rocked by news of Travis Scott gifting one of his fans an unreleased Air Force 1 collaboration, along with headlines of Will Smith becoming Onitsuka Tiger’s new ambassador.

Finally, over the weekend, Jordan Brand revealed the Air Jordan XXXIV with help from new signee Zion Williamson.
