With back-to-school season well behind us, that hasn’t stopped the biggest sneaker brands in the industry from releasing soon-to-be-coveted silhouettes. Before we jump into this week’s best footwear drops, let’s take a look back at the biggest headlines of the past week.

One of the biggest headlines goes to long time adidas fan and former WWE superstar Ric Flair who signed an endorsement deal with the Three Stripes hoping to “take down Nike” and turn Air Jordan into Air Flair. While Flair was stirring up controversy for his comments, Nike’s CEO Mark Parker opened up about the recent backlash regarding the company’s Air Max 1 “Betsy Ross” design.

In terms of first looks, Travis Scott revealed Cactus Plant Flea Market’s latest Nike collaboration, while a potential third Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low colorway surfaced. We also got a look at the upcoming Air Jordan 4 WNTR “Loyal Blue,” the YEEZY Foam Runner, and a Star Wars X-Wing-themed adidas UltraBOOST.

Elsewhere, a better look at The Nightmare Before Christmas x Vans Collaboration surfaced thanks to Sneaker Politics, and Nike added FitAdapt self-lacing technology to the Huarache. Additionally official photos of the Virgil Abloh x MCA Chicago x Cassius Hirst x Nike Air Force 1 ‘07 were also released.

Finally over the past week we brought you a bevy of original content, taking you down to Harlem as Zion Williamson and The Baby Dunk Crew unveiled the Air Jordan 34 and rounding out the 10 best sneakers under $100 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.
