There are only but a few days left to go in the month of September 2022, and all of your favorite sneaker brands such as Nike, Jordan Brand, New Balance and others have their eyes set on ringing in the fall season with some coveted collaborations and general launches. But before we sum those up for you, let’s take a little stroll back into last week to comb through all of the action that went down in sneakers.

Sole MatesHypebeast‘s ongoing sneaker series — racked up another feature with Salomon‘s marketing director Bryan Diaz as he shedded light on the growth of the company as well as the popular ACS Pro Advanced. On the news front, we found a substantial amount of newness coming out of Nike’s camp. The Beaverton sportswear juggernaut previewed its forthcoming Air Force 1 collaborations with AMBUSH, previewed more images of an Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Graffiti” colorway, struck rumors of a collaboration with Mexican soft drink company Jarritos and revealed the LeBron XX. Jordan Brand also treated its fans with some on-foot imagery of the highly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 High “Lost and Found,” a closer look at the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Olive” and a first glimpse of the Air Jordan 1 “True Blue” makeup.

The Three Stripes is still in the middle of a heated debate with Ye over their contract negotiations, but it still carved out time to unveil some upcoming products. More photos of the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Jade Ash” showed face, a collaborative initiative with Song for the Mute popped up, the adidas Rovermule Adventure was revealed in “Triple Black” and a Black Panther-inspired Ultra 4D was uncovered.

Honorable mentions include the HAL STUDIOS x ASICS GEL-1130 reveal, atmos’ New Balance 1906R “Tokyo Dimension” announcement and the 7-Eleven team-up with Crocs.

Air Jordan 4 “Black Canvas”

Release Date: October 1
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS and BSTN
