In the midst of the scorching weather of July continuing to roll on in, the world’s most notable sneaker imprints are making it a point to keep pumping out the heat. Over the course of the coming days, we’re going to see brands such as Nike, adidas, Reebok and more make a sizable delivery of new releases, but before we get into this week’s installment of Weekly Footwear Drops let’s make sure we’re all updated on last week first.

On the footwear exclusives front, HYPEBEAST‘s Sole Mates franchise tallied up another striking feature with the Sky Chen — director of COSTS — about his love for the ASICS GEL-LYTE III. Our Behind The HYPE series also expanded with a new episode that explores how YEEZY, Crocs and Balenciaga innovated the future of footwear with EVA foam. There was also a considerable amount of fresh news that was announced in the sneaker world. Starting with Nike, the Beaverton-headquartered company officially unveiled its next Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose “Dark Sulfur” colorway, the Skate Like a Girl x Nike SB Dunk Low as well as a closer look at its impending Stüssy x Nike Air Max 2015 “Fossil” collaboration. We also caught some impressive items from Jordan Brand such as the Air Jordan 5 GORE-TEX “Off-Noir,” the Air Jordan 37 and an on-foot perspective of the Two 18 x Air Jordan 2 Low.

As always, adidas had to make its presence felt, so it gave us a closer look at its ultra-clean YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 CMPCT “Slate Bone,” unveiled Lucas Puig’s PUIG Indoor silhouette, teased a new adidas Gazelle collaboration with Sean Wotherspoon and announced a new IVY PARK collection alongside Beyoncé.

Other brands that made some noise include Stone Island which showed off upcoming Donald Glover collaboration and 2002R team-up with AURALEE, Dior which previewed more styles alongside Cactus Jack as well as Maison Margiela and Reebok who quietly released a stealthy Croafer.

Now that we’ve got you all up to speed, take a dive into our round-up of the best releases dropping this week. And when you’re all done there, be sure to head over to HBX to shop more footwear styles.

Kerwin Frost x adidas Microbounce T1

Release Date: July 13
Release Price: $220 USD
Where to Buy: adidas
Why You Should Cop: After partnering with adidas to manufacture a supersized Superstar collaboration in 2021, Kerwin Frost is reconvening with the German sportswear imprint to generate a duo of Microbounce collaborations. The Harlem-born entertainer reimagines the futuristic and functional trainers with boisterous “Multi-Color/Yellow/Scarlet” and furry “Bright Royal/Bright Royal/Ecru Tint” arrangements. Both offerings come made with tongue patches that feature Frost’s moniker as well as co-branded insoles.

DRKSHDW x Converse TURBODRK Chuck 70

Release Date: July 13
Release Price: $165-170 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Rick Owens is reuniting with Converse this week to debut a brand new DRKSHDW x Converse TURBODRK Chuck 70 collection. This latest interpretation deviates itself from past variations as it has been decorated with a lacquered denim finish that gives the kicks a bold sheen. The high-cut square toe offering is dyed in black while the Ox low-slung installment is fashioned with a silver exterior.

Nike Air Bo Turf

Release Date: July 13
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: The 80s and 90s was an era known for its incredible athletes, and one of the most respected two-sport players during this time was Bo Jackson. He was an absolute beast on the gridiron, but also showed off his impressive skills on the baseball field. And Nike is honoring him with the reincarnation of his Air Bo Turf — a model that first debuted in 1992. The low-cut kicks are equipped with lockdown cables on the lateral and medial panels and arrive embellished with 34” hits on the heels of the right shoe to call out his jersey number while his signature motto “Bo Knows” shows face on the insoles.

Maison Château Rouge x Air Jordan 2

Release Date: July 14
Release Price: $225 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Air Jordan 2 collaborations continue to be the highlight of Jordan Brand’s 2022 thus far, but it’s still got plenty left in the tank. Next up for the once looked over model is a joint effort with Maison Château Rouge which is engineered to commemorate the story of global youth culture. Intricate details include the tonal patterns that arrive on the mid-foot the toothy textures that border the throat and the exposed stitchings on the tongues all nod to the brand’s roots.

Nike SB Dunk High “Mets”

Release Date: July 14
Release Price: $125 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Nike SB has put together a full-blown Dunk Low assemblage that is all inspired by specific MLB franchises and one of the variations that is included is this New York Mets colorway. Blue and orange accents call out the team’s signature accent colors along the Swooshes, tongues and interior liners. Furthermore, the inside of the tongues feature playful graphics including a 7 train logo on the left shoe and an apple that nods to NYC on the right side.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Phillies”

Release Date: July 14
Release Price: $115 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: After several leaks, Nike SB’s baseball-inspired Dunk Low assortment is finally getting its chance to be delivered to the public. One iteration that’s part of this initiative is the Nike SB Dunk Low “Phillies” colorway which is fashioned to mimic its retro uniforms. Baby blue and maroon color-blocking shine throughout its upper and icons symbolic of Philadelphia such as the Philly Cheesesteak and the Liberty Bell are placed inside the tongues.

Social Status x Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Recess”

Release Date: July 14
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: Social Status
Why You Should Cop: Social Status once again knocks it out of the park with its storytelling over its anticipated Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Recess” collection. The collection was crafted through the lens of the youth and is meant to shine a light on the importance of the lessons learned in and out of the classroom. “Black” and “Desert Sand” colorways come packaged with interchangeable Swooshes that call out various sports.

SNEEZE Mag x Reebok LT Court

Release Date: July 15
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Reebok
Why You Should Cop: Part of Reebok’s business model on the footwear side has been to keep a constant stream of collaborations flowing out into the market and next up on its list is another team-up with SNEEZE Mag. After working on a Club C back in 2020, the two parties reunite to produce a pair of LT Court colorways. Both the “Black/White” and “Green/Chalk” renditions come prepared with contrast stitching throughout the top half and feature SNEEZE tags that are attached to the collars.

Bodega x New Balance 574 Legacy

Release Date: July 15
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: Bodega
Why You Should Cop: Bodega and New Balance are certainly no strangers to working together as they teamed up on a variety of silhouettes including the 998, 997S, X-Racer and more, and now they’re set to add the 574 Legacy to their catalog. Designed to nod to the global influence that the sneaker has had on the community over time, the two-pronged capsule features bold blue and yellow colorways titled “Departure” and “Arrival.” Tongues are embellished with a co-branded hit and the shoes come with vintage-inspired hang tags.

Air Jordan 1 KO “Gray/White”

Release Date: July 16
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: Nike
Why You Should Cop: Despite the fact that the Air Jordan 1 KO has been expanding its range at a slow and steady pace, the shoes have been cooked up in a handful of striking colorways. One can argue that none will ever reign supreme over the iconic “Chicago” makeup, but it’s iterations like this “Grey/White” version that give consumers are more versatile option to keep in their rotation.
