We’ve officially entered into the latter half of October, and over the course of the coming days, there will be a handsome crop of sneaeker launches lined up so we took the liberty of rounding up the best ones. New styles from brands like Nike, Jordan Brand, Reebok and more are all contributing to Hypebeast‘s best footwear drops list this week, but before we dive into those, let’s first give you all of the sneaker tea that sprung up from last week.

Enrico Pasi — Global Brand Director for Suicoke — was the latest featured guest on our weekly Sole Mates series in which he discussed the ins and outs of the niche brand and his personal style. We also caught up with the founders of norda as they gave us insight on making the world’s most premier trail running kicks. On the news front, Nike announced its latest initiative to fight off resellers and bots, unveiled a Dunk High “Lunar New Year” colorway, Dunk Low “Mars Stone” makeup and the SOULGOODS x Nike Dunk High installment. Major items from Jordan Brand were also revealed such as the highly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 “Lost & Found,” Nigel Sylvester’s upcoming Air Jordan 1 collab and an Air Jordan 11 “Midnight Navy” rendition.

The Three Stripes definitely made its presence felt last week as well. Pharrell dropped his new Hu NMD S1 RYAT in “Black,” Ye revealed his adidas YZY KNIT RNR “Fade Indigo” and adidas and IRAK reconvened for a new Samba capsule. Elsewhere in sneakers, four-time champion Steph Curry unveiled his Curry Flow 10, Salehe Bembury previewed a Clarks Lugger collaboration, LaMelo Ball and PUMA Hoops debuted the MB.02 and detailed images of the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon FW22 footwear lineup emerged.

Now that you’re all updated with the latest sneaker news, let’s break down the best drops from this week. And after you finish peeping those, don’t forget to shop the HBX store for more footwear styles.
