School is back in session for a plethora of students across the nation which means summer is whittling down to its last few weeks. And before the warmest season of the year concludes, sneaker brands such as Nike, adidas, New Balance and more are making it a point to fire out as many releases as they can. Before we get down to the top drops of this week, let us first travel back in time to recap all of last week’s action.

Our Sole Mates series proceeded with another feature as usual to highlight adidas communications managers Rocky Zhang and his love for former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas and his signature Gil 2 Zero model. In terms of news from the German brand, we caught a closer look at the adidas adiFOM Q, learned that the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 “Pirate Black” is slated to return and received word on its kebab-inspired ZX8000 colorway.

Shifting the attention over to the Nike side now, the Swoosh teased an Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Graffiti” colorway as well as a Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe “Brown” iteration. Kyrie Irving laced up what could be his final signature with the brand in the Kyrie 9 and the Nike Air Max 90 Futura was revealed with a delectable “Neapolitan” makeover. On the Jordan Brand side we were blessed with a closer look at its forthcoming Air Jordan 12 collaboration with A Ma Maniére, more imagery of the Air Jordan 1 High “Gorge Green” and on-foot shots of Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 Low OG SP “Black Phantom.”

In terms of other brands, size? teased teal 1906R collab, Awake NY’s ASICS GEL-LYTE III capsule was announced and Anuel AA’s Reebok Pump Omni Zone II was unveiled.

All caught up? Amazing. Browse through this week’s best releases here below and be sure to visit our HBX online store to shop more footwear styles.

Nike Air Huarache “British Tan”

Release Date: August 23
Release Price: $125 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: One pattern that we’ve noticed with Nike and its classic Air Huarache is that it’ll often turn to the brand’s ACG category for inspiration. In the past we’ve seen the Sportswear model reference the Lunar Air 180 ACG for an exclusive colorway with size?, and now this latest “British Tan” makeup nods to Olivia Kim’s variation from 2019.

Air Jordan 3 “Dark Iris”

Release Date: August 24
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS and Shoe Palace
Why You Should Cop: Before the world indulges in the glorious return of the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red,” Jordan Brand is blessing the market with a modern “Dark Iris” colorway. Its titular shade plays a supporting role here as it splashes the perforated collars, insides of the tongues and midsole molds while leather uppers are dyed in white. Traditional elephant-patterned overlays are covered in a muted gray hue.

Bephie’s Beauty Supply x Air Jordan 7

Release Date: August 25
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: Bephie’s Beauty Supply
Why You Should Cop: Bephie’s Beauty Supply — Union LA’s co-owner Bephie Gibbs’ imprint — earned itself an Air Jordan 7 collaboration. Taking a more technical approach to the classic Jordan model, Gibbs reworks the silhouette with an inner mesh bootie, a toggled lacing system and a heel counter that is borrowed from the classic Nike Air Huarache.

New Balance 990v3 (YCMC Exclusive)

Release Date: August 25
Release Price: $195 USD
Where to Buy: YCMC
Why You Should Cop: YCMC and New Balance often link together to release exclusive sneaker colorways, and this season the duo has reunited to unleash arguably the cleanest 990v3 of 2022. Shades of “Kool Grey” mesh and “Marblehead” nubuck suede work in harmony for its upper panels, all of which are meant to nod to the silhouette’s OG grey makeup. The kicks also come packaged with four sets of laces so you can mix and match.

JJJJound x ASICS GEL-KAYANO 14

Release Date: August 25
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: JJJJound and Bodega
Why You Should Cop: JJJJound is thrusted back into the spotlight this week thanks to its latest collaboration with ASICS atop the GEL-KAYANO 14. As per usual, the Montreal design entity delivers its minimalistic design language to the lifestyle runner into two colorways, both of which are done up with a grayscale motif. Social media has been eating up this colorway like no other since the brand officially announced its launch date, and you can certainly expect these to sell out the minute they drop.

New Balance 990v3 “Castlerock”

Release Date: August 25
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: New Balance
Why You Should Cop: Teddy Santis cannot miss with his ongoing New Balance MADE in USA series. He continues to release extremely wearable colorways of the classic 990 series, and the next to receive a launch is this 990v3 “Castlerock” colorway. Various shades of blue alternate amongst its suede and mesh panels above, while “Castlerock” notes appear atop the overlays planted on the toe boxes and collars.

Nike Air Max 1 “Dirty Denim”

Release Date: August 26
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Celebrations for the classic Nike Air Max 1 are trucking right along as the silhouette is finally set to release with a new “Denim” motif. Jean-like overlays are distributed to the quarter panels, lower throat and heels and come neighbored by suede mudguards and toe boxes that are dyed with denim-inspired blue wash. Exposed stitchings further echo its theme, and the bottoms are designed with gum exteriors to further accentuate its lifestyle purpose.

Bad Bunny x adidas Forum Low “Blue Tint”

Release Date: August 27
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop: Pretty much everything that Bad Bunny touches turns to gold, especially when it comes to adidas silhouettes. The Puerto Rican crooner has garnered plenty of attraction and success for his various footwear collaborations and he’s ready to add this Forum Buckle Low “Blue Tint” to his cannon. Taking on a monochromatic motif, the artist wraps the lifestyle model with its titular shade in an effort to translate the sky.

A Ma Maniére x Jordan Brand Air Ship

Release Date: August 26
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: A Ma Maniére
Why You Should Cop: Before introducing its Air Jordan 12 and Air Jordan 4 collaborations to the world, A Ma Maniére is hashing out room for an unexpected Air Ship team-up with Jordan Brand. Construction-wise, the James Whitner-led imprint leaves its traditional leather build alone, but decides to coat the Swooshes and collars with “Game Royal” paint jobs. Nike Air hits are located on the tongues and heels as usual, the former of which also has an “A Ma Maniére” hit below. Additionally, the insides of the tongues are adorned with an individual number out of 2300, which is the amount of pairs that exist.

sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0 “White/Varsity Royal”

Release Date: August 30
Release Price: $185 USD
Where to Buy: sacai
Why You Should Cop: Chitose Abe reunites with Nike this week to kick of the releases her her highly-anticipated sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0. First up on the list is the “White/Varsity Royal” which is an overt nod to the silhouette’s OG color scheme that is often associated with the classic film Forrest Gump. An interior bootie has been added to the model as well as double Swooshes and extra molds on the midsole pieces that show off sacai’s unique design language.
