The month of October is moving swiftly, and as we find ourselves sitting in the middle of the first full month of Fall, sneaker brands are continuing to provide its consumers with a hearty amount of new releases. This week, we’re seeing a bevy of coveted items dropping from the likes of Nike, adidas, Reebok and more, but let’s first take the time to catch you up on all of the best moments in sneakers from last week.

HYPEBEAST‘s weekly Sole Mates series rolled right along as we linked with Sneaker Freaker’s very own Simon “Woody” Wood to talk about his ties to the iconic Nike Air Force 1. In terms of new business from Nike, the Swoosh made a generated a significant amount of buzz last week as it unveiled its Cross Trainer Low collection with Supreme, officially unveiled its spooky SB Dunk Low “Mummy” colorway and teased and upcoming Dunk Low “Reverse Argon” colorway. Jordan Brand also make a huge statement with its revealings as the brand provided closer looks at the Air Jordan 1 High “Brotherhood” that’s inspired by MJ’s Omega Psi Phi fraternity, officially previewed the Air Jordan 3 “Pine Green” and confirmed that Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 Low “Reverse Mocha” is slated to release to the public in 2022.

Days before Kanye West legally changed his name to Ye, he teased a handful of new YEEZY offerings. Some included that of newer silhouettes such as the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 CMPCT while others were simply official photos of his YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “MX Oat” and YEEZY BOOST 380 “Pyrite” and “Stone SLT” makeups. Other striking installments that the Three Stripes uncovered included Sean Wotherspoon‘s next adidas Superturf Adventure and the Y-3 Runner 4D IOW in white.

Other brands also chimed in on the action such as Dior which showed off its latest B30 kicks, Curry Brand which announced its Curry Flow 9 collaboration with Sesame Street, Telfar which presented its newest initiative with UGG and Reebok which publicized its latest collection with artist Keith Haring.

All up to speed? Great. Check out this week’s top 10 releases here below, and when you’re finished, take a moment to peep HBX for more available footwear styles.

NBA x Nike Dunk Low “Brooklyn Nets”

Release Date: October 19
Release Price: $100 USD
Where to Buy: Nike and Foot Locker
Why You Should Cop: In honor of the NBA’s Diamond anniversary (75 years), the pro hoops league is linking up with its official apparel sponsor in Nike to produce team-inspired Dunk colorways. One franchise that’s been fortunate to be involved in this collection is the Nets, and the team’s makeup is a nod to both of its New Jersey and Brooklyn eras. The overall color scheme is aligned with the New Jersey era as it comes styled with navy, gray and red hues, but the essence of the current KD, Kyrie and Harden era comes through on the lateral heel logo.

1017 ALYX 9SM x Nike Air Force 1 High “University Red”

Release Date: Raffle: October 19-October 21
Release Price: $460 USD
Where to Buy: 1017 ALYX 9SM
Why You Should Cop:
In the thick of the Fall season, luxury label 1017 ALYX 9SM is reconnecting with Nike to produce more Air Force 1 Highs. Up next from the masterful mind of Matthew M Williams are two “University Red” iterations. Both are styled with the brand’s signature belt buckle ankle straps, premium leather uppers and gilded branding on the lateral sides. Its titular tone dresses up most of the base layer on one colorway and acts as a secondary accent on its release sibling.

Nike Air Presto “Halloween”

Release Date: October 21
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: The Halloween celebration is drawing near, and Nike has readied a spooky batch of new kicks, one being this Nike Air Presto “Halloween” colorway. A majority of the kicks are swathed in a stark black and come with jack-o’-lantern-esque orange hits across the exposed stitchings, interior lining, and the toe box and heel branding. Neighboring this is a milky cage that is accessorized with various sets of scary eyes to further echo its frightful motif.

Nike Air Force 1 “Halloween”

Release Date: October 21
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: In the spirit of the holiday season, Nike is feeling mighty festive and manufacturing special footwear offerings to celebrate Halloween. One of the pieces of this year’s fright fest is this Air Force 1 Low colorway. Color-wise, the kicks are dominated by black and pumpkin-esque orange hues, the former cascading over the leather Swooshes, toe boxes, laces and tongue banners while the latter styles up the tongues, interior lining, midsole “AIR” branding and outsoles. Additionally, tonal sets of eyes are plastered across the base to align with its launch partners.

Eames x Reebok Club C 85 “Monotone Pack”

Release Date: October 21
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Reebok
Why You Should Cop: In the realm of design and architecture, Charles and Ray Eames are household names. And while their names are most commonly associated with mid-century modern furniture, they’re now being tied to the footwear industry with a collection of Reebok Club C 85 collaborations. Not too far out from revealing a friends and family colorway, the two parties have announced its latest “Monotone Pack” that will be delivered to the public. The black and white pairs are both treated with neutral uppers and trade out the mid-foot Reebok branding for an “Eames” spell out.

Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough”

Release Date: October 22
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: Concepts
Why You Should Cop: The Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough” was first teased back in 2020 and was designed to release on 4/20, but this never came through. Official images of the stoner-friendly kicks surfaced early this Summer, but it isn’t only until now that they will finally be dropping to the public. Starting from the front end of the shoes, three quarters of the upper are cooked up with red leather that features smooth toe boxes and seed-like bumps on the quarters and forefoot to speak to its moniker. Shaggy green suedes are parked on the flaps — a clear nod to marijuana — and a strawberry insignia is planted onto the lateral heels.

Saquon Barkley x Nike Air Trainer 3

Release Date: October 22
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Saquon Barkley has had himself a rough season thus far due to grueling injuries, but this week he’ll have a product initiative to look forward to: the release of his collaborative Nike Air Trainer 3. The kicks are styled with various elements related to New York and the talented running back. Reflective detailing nods to the Big Apple’s construction zones and Barley’s persona lightning logo is attached to the heels of the shoes. Additionally, his jersey number “26” makes its way onto the tongues and two black stripes grace over the left shoe’s Swooshes to represent the eyeblack he wears in games.

Sean Wotherspoon x adidas Superstar SUPEREARTH

Release Date: October 22
Release Price: $110 USD
Where to Buy: adidas and Shop Nice Kicks
Why You Should Cop: Sean Wotherspoon’s footwear launches with adidas are continuing with a brand new Superstar SUPEREARTH this month. Here, the Round Two founder follows up his previously launched white colorway with a black iteration, and keeps many of its colorful and sustainable components. Leather uppers are accessorized with a assortment of colors and distressing. Baby blue, green, orange an yellow accents also make their presence felt atop the heels and eyestays, and Wotherspoon’s SUPEREARTH characters land on the tongues, lace shrouds and dubraes.

Pyer Moss x Reebok Experiment 4 “Emergency”

Release Date: October 23
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: Pyer Moss
Why You Should Cop: After recently dropping his in-house Sculpt shoe in red, Kerby Jean-Raymond is switching gears for a moment to give more love to his Reebok collaborations. Next up for Pyer Moss and the vector imprint is the Experiment 4 “Emergency” colorway. A majority of the base along with the split sole unit is done up in gray, while the leather overlays and shrouds feature potent bursts of orange. This marks the first Experiment 4 release since the “Old White” colorway that dropped in November 2020 so be sure to get your wallets ready for these as they will likely fly off the shelves.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “MX Oat”

Release Date: October 23
Release Price: $220 USD
Where to Buy: adidas and Yeezy Supply
Why You Should Cop: Kanye West has released too many adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 colorways at this point, but while the shoes continue to sell out, he’s going to keep the ball rolling as long as possible. Up next for the silhouette is its wild “MX Oat” colorway. This specific release is the first to show off Ye’s new marbled upper, and it features whimsical swirls of blue, yellow and orange that are applied to a “Oat” backdrop.
