All of your favorite sportswear imprints are in preparation to catapult plenty of appealing releases into the market for the second week of June, and we’ve rounded up the best 10 right here. Included in this week’s batch are new heavy-hitters from the likes of Nike, adidas, Converse and more, but before we dive in let’s take a primer on what went down last week.

On the exclusives front, HYPEBEAST‘s Sole Mates series kept trucking along with a new feature that entailed a conversation with Bodega’s Director of Marketing Matthew Zaremba about his deep-rooted love for the Nike Dunk Low. We also had the opportunity to sit down with James Whitner — founder and CEO of The Whitaker Group — to discuss the latest A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2 release. In terms of news, Nike brought forth a sizable amount of new offerings to our attention such as the Neckface x Nike SB Dunk Low, the Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Pine Green” and a teaser of a collaboration with Jacquemus. On the Jordan Brand side we caught a glimpse of the company’s two-way clog, the forthcoming Air Jordan 3 Winterized “Archaeo Brown,” the Air Jordan 8 “Taxi” and the Air Jordan 12 Low “Driftwood.”

A strong presence was also felt from adidas as the Germany-based athletic giant showed a teaser of Kobe Bryant’s Crazy 1 OG “Metallic Silver” re-release, the adidas Adizero Adios Pro 3.0 runner and its latest collection with Wales Bonner. Other brands that got in on the mix were was Reebok which previewed a new NPC II collaboration with JJJJound, NEIGHBORHOOD and Suicoke for a new DEPA sandal team-up and Vans which presented its newest range with Anderson .Paak.

Now that we’ve got you updated, let’s dive into this week’s best drops here below. In addition, be sure to browse through the HBX online store for new footwear launches.
