There’s still a little over a month left of the summer 2022 season, and in the remaining weeks of arguably the most exciting time of the year, all of the most popular sneaker brands are jam-packing the release calendar with a wave of new drops. On deck for the coming days comes exciting iterations and global launches from the likes of Nike, adidas and Vans, but first, let’s catch you up on the noteworthy stories that came up last week.

Hypebeast pumps out footwear exclusives weekly, and last week’s Sole Mates series continued with a new feature on Ye Chun — Tianjin COLOUR’s founder — about his and his hometown’s affinity for the Nike Air Foamposite One as well as dove into Nike Running’s impactful 50-year history. The Swoosh imprint also had a significant amount of news to push out. We captured official looks of the Stüssy x Nike Air Penny 2, HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low “San Francisco” and Billie Eilish’s next Nike Air Force 1 Low collaborations. Jordan Brand gave us a closer look at the anticipated Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Black Phantom,” A Closer Look at the Zion Williamson x Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Voodoo” and on-foot shots of the Air Jordan 2 OG “Chicago.”

The Three Stripes also had some striking unveilings. Pharrell extended his adidas NMD Hu lineage with a blue “Animal Print” makeup, Ye’s YEEZY Slide “Flax” was officially uncovered and Fucking Awesome reunited with the German giant for an Experiment 2 in “Triple Black.”

More brands that made their presence felt include New Balance which showed off a GORE-TEX-infused 2002R, ASICS which introduced its UN1-S Jogger X81 model and Reebok which announced its new Jurassic World: Dominion collection.

Now that we’ve got you all informed on the latest in kicks, let’s dive into this week’s best releases here below. When you’re finished, be sure to also head over to HBX to peep more footwear styles.

TOMBOGO™ x Saucony “The Butterfly”

Release Date: August 16 (Raffle Opens 12pm EDT)
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: TOMBOGO™
Why You Should Cop: Burgeoning streetwear entity TOMBOGO™ is widely recognized for its unique approach to functional and fashionable design. And it takes this signature perspective to apply to it to its collaborative offering with Saucony titled “The Butterfly.” The new footwear piece is a two-in-one type model that features an inner bootie with a clog-like exoskeleton. TOMBOGO™ branding stands out in bold red on the lateral panels while Saucony’s moniker adorns the rear.

Air Jordan 14 “Ginger”

Release Date: August 17
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Jordan Brand’s retro catalog is often a place for its designers to turn to for inspiration when fashioning modern colorways. The upcoming Air Jordan 14 “Ginger” is an example of one as it draws influence from a low-slung variation of the silhouette that was originally launched in 1999. This time around, the similar color palette makes its way back to the limelight on a variation that is geared towards the imprint’s women’s demographic.

Salehe Bembury’s Crocs Pollex Clog “Cobbler”

Release Date: August 18
Release Price: $85 USD
Where to Buy: Spunge
Why You Should Cop: Salehe Bembury shook the clog game up the moment he first started teasing his collection of Crocs Pollex Clogs, and every release thus far has been met with overwhelming demand. This week, his ongoing range grows with a “Cobbler” entry which comes decorated with Autumnal shades of orange and features his signature exaggerated fingerprint-inspired molds.

Reebok Question Mid “Blue Toe”

Release Date: August 18
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: Reebok
Why You Should Cop: Allen Iverson has a surplus of colorways in his catalog with Reebok, and one that is strongly associated with his iconic ’96-’97 rookie season is making its way back to the shelves. The Answer’s Reebok Question Mid “Blue Toe” comes fitted with retro 76ers colors and is decorated with leather uppers and sheen toe boxes. After releasing exclusively through Packer last week, the kicks are being launched globally.

AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force

Release Date: August 19
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH is ready to introduce the next chapter of her partnership with the Swoosh. After cooking up a handful of Dunk colorways and apparel pieces, the designer is lending her touch to the Air Adjust Force by discarding the midsole Swoosh and shaping the upper with a shorter trim and more seamless profile. Anh’s first batch of “Summit White/Black” and “Black/Psychic Purple” colorways will be the first to hit the market.

Air Jordan 13 “French Blue”

Release Date: August 19
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: The “French Blue” motif is most commonly associated with the Air Jordan 12, but Jordan Brand silhouettes are known to borrow from each other from time to time so it’s now slated to land on the Air Jordan 13 this season. Pockmarked uppers are predominantly covered in a bright white, while its titular shade adorns the suede mudguards and heels and “Light Steel Grey” accents apply to the premium leather toe boxes.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 “Vanta”

Release Date: August 19
Release Price: $300 USD
Where to Buy: adidas
Why You Should Cop: Ye’s footwear line with adidas is known to roll out restocks of certain colorways at any point in time. And this week we’re going to see the glorious return of the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 “Vanta” that last launched in 2019. The chunky silhouette comes fitted with a stealthy makeover from top to bottom and is easily one of the model’s more understated and versatile iterations.

Bianca Chandôn x Vault by Vans

Release Date: August 20
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: Bianca Chandôn
Why You Should Cop: Vault by Vans has a penchant for working with a variety of different partners every year on collaborative collections, and the next to be presented is a project with Bianca Chandôn. The streetwear entity most recognized for its Lover apparel pieces has put its own creative spin on four silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi Reissue VLT LX, Old Skool VLT LX, Authentic VLT LX and the Classic Slip-on VLT LX. Star graphics are brought to life in all-over fashion on each pair and the canvas uppers are given a pre-distressed finish.
