To supplement all of the excitement over the Super Bowl LVII showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend, your favorite sportswear brands have prepared a vast array of new inline footwear offerings and anticipated collaborations. On deck are new propositions from Nike, Jordan Brand, New Balance and more, but let’s first summarize all of the biggest news items that popped up last week.

Let’s run through exclusives first. Last week marked the official unveiling of the Tiffany and Co. x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration, so Hypebeast did a deep dive into the polarizing initiative. Additionally, our weekly Sole Mates series welcomed New York-based artist Marcus Brutus who spoke to us about his longstanding love for the Nike Air Flightposite 1, we broke down the impact of Ja Morant’s newest signature sneaker and spoke to Union LA’s owner Chris Gibbs about debuting the Air Jordan 1 KO Low.

In terms of news, Nike had plenty of new installments to preview. Yoon Ahn teased an upcoming AMBUSH x Nike Air Force 1 in white, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Anthracite” is now rumored to return, and official images of the UNDERCOVER x Nike Moc Flow “Light Bone” popped up. Jordan Brand had a bevy of heat to show off as well such as the Air Jordan 13 “Playoffs” retro, Jayson Tatum’s JT1 “Archer Ave” and Zion Williamson’s Naruto x Air Jordan 37 “Rasengan” collaboration.

Big moves were made from the adidas camp last week as well. The Three Stripes officially shut down the YEEZY Supply website, introduced Palace’s adidas Lucas Puig Samba capsule and even signed on Jenna Ortega as a global brand ambassador. Other striking footwear moments that came up last week include the unveiling of Kawhi Leonard’s New Balance Kawhi III Alpha Predator signature, the JJJJound x New Balance 991 UK “Grey” announcement and the reveal of detailed shots of Action Bronson’s Upcoming New Balance 990v6 team-up.

Now that you’re all updated with the latest in the sneaker realm, scroll on down below to check out this week’s hottest releases. And when you’re done there, be sure to tap into the HBX online store to shop for more footwear styles.
