Sliding into our second week of March, sneaker brands have ensured that there’s plenty to look forward to. Key launches this week come from Nike, New Balance and adidas as much-anticipated collaborative projects finally land on shelves. However, before we dive into things, let’s recap what news has popped up since our last breakdown.

The latest edition of Sole Mates featured Breanna Stewart and her PUMA Stewie 1 in its “Four Time” colorway, nodding to her back-to-back-to-back-to-back national titles. She dove deeper into her first signature shoe’s design, her sneaker journey and more as well. Another recurring series – best footwear trends – took on Paris Fashion Week to wrap up fashion month. Rounding out our feature coverage, we also took a look at the best running shoes on the market currently.

Looking at the Swoosh in particular, it made noise with its official reveal of this year’s Air Max Day model – the Air Max Pulse. It also saw its Supreme x Nike SB Dunk “Rammellzee” collection teased via early pairs in low-top and high-top form. News regarding the SB Dunk Low continued with rumors of an April Skateboards pair and a first look at Yuto Horigome’s own colorway. Lastly, Nigel Sylvester showed off his collaborative “BIKE AIR” take on the Air Ship.

As for its Jordan Brand subsidiary, Nike SB shared the intricate differences in its take on the Air Jordan 4. However, it was the Air Jordan 1 that dominated headlines for the Jumpman with first looks at a high-top “Palomino” and low-top “Black Toe” and “Atmosphere Grey” pairs. An on-foot breakdown of the AJ1 Retro High OG “UNC Toe” also surfaced.

On the other end of the footwear universe, adidas’ CEO spoke to the YEEZY inventory dilemma as the brand continues to figure out what to do with its surplus while an unreleased YEEZY 500 with a gum sole popped up, adding to the list of would-have-been-released pairs. Offspring was later crowned the first Consortium Cup champion with its Raf Simons-inspired hybrid model. Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 line entered the mix as it surprise dropped its new modular ITOGO silhouette.

Other headlines included a one-of-one pair of boots for Mario designed by Red Wing Shoes to celebrate Mario Day. For more wacky sneakers, Balenciaga’s 3XL Trainer Mule surfaced in a worn-in silver. Completing our recap, collaborations between NOAH and PUMA on the Clyde Sneaker and SNEEZE Magazine and Reebok on the Club C Grounds were revealed.

Now that you’re all caught up with what’s going on in footwear, check out the top ten drops of the week below. Once you’ve had the chance to review what’s to come, be sure to stop by HBX to shop styles that are available for purchase immediately.

Now, the duo is revisiting the taupe colorway from 2016 with clean presentations of the UltraBOOST 1.0 and Ultra 4D.
