Memorial Day Weekend 2022 is now in the books, and as the page turns to the month of June, sneaker brands are looking to start the month off on the right foot with a slew of new footwear releases. New deliveries from the likes of Nike, Jordan Brand, Reebok and more are in line to hit the shelves, but before we break those down for you let’s first do a recap of all of the sneaker action that came up last week.

Sole MatesHYPEBEAST‘s weekly series that focuses on sneaker storytelling — continued with a brand new interview with Thinking Different’s George Robertson who discussed his relationship with the elusive Nike Mag. On the news front, Nike made a handful of big-time headlines as it released an exclusive “Wheat” Air Max 1 colorway alongside Travis Scott, announced a new collaboration with Supreme and revealed its ‘Nike at 50: A Genealogy of Progress’ exhibition in Hong Kong. Staying within the Beaverton circle, Jordan Brand also had plenty of striking colorways to show off including the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Bleached Coral,” Air Jordan 6 “Georgetown,” Air Jordan 1 High “Starfish” and the Phil Jackson-inspired Air Jordan 4 “Zen Master.”

adidas focused on quality instead of quantity with its news last week as it brought light to Kanye West‘s upcoming adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Dark Beluga,” a 90s-inspired adidas Orketro model and a Forum Low colorway that’s extremely similar to Bad Bunny’s Easter collaboration. Other notable kicks that sprung up include that of Salehe Bembury’s Crocs Pollex Clog “Sasquatch,” the Blends x Vault by Vans’ OG Style 36 LX “Magic Tape” Pack and the Andersson Bell x ASICS HN2-S PROTOBLAST S capsule.

All up to speed? Perfect. See below for this week’s best footwear drops and be sure to head over to HBX’s online store to check out all the newest footwear styles.

Other areas of the base such as the toe boxes, quarters and collars contrast with angelic finishes.
