The stage is almost set for the 2024 NBA Finals as the Boston Celtics just completed their sweep of the Indiana Pacers, and unless the Minnesota Timberwolves make history as the first NBA team to ever accomplish a reverse sweep in a seven game series, the Dallas Mavericks will be the final obstacle for the Celtics. Meanwhile, the competition between sneaker brands rages on as another week of exciting drops has been prepared by the likes of Jordan Brand, Crocs, ASICS, New Balance, Nike, Saucony and adidas. However, before going over what drops to mark on your calendar this time around, let’s review the key headlines from the sneaker space since we last presented Weekly Footwear Drops.

Looking first at the Swoosh, it finally had one of its bootleg sneaker legal cases conclude with Kool Kiy ordered to pay the brand $1 million USD due to trademark infringement involving its Air Jordan 1 and Dunk silhouettes. As for its upcoming releases, a first look at a modern Dunk Low Pro B sample surfaced with rumors pointing towards a return for the silhouette early next year. The brand also revealed its official imagery of its first breakdancing sneaker: the Nike Jam. Per usual, the Kobe line was a focal point with images of the upcoming Kobe 4 Protro “Girl Dad” release shared alongside a teaser of a “Job’s Not Finished” colorway. As for the Jordan Brand crew, a first look at this year’s Air Jordan 6 “Paris Olympics” appeared alongside a new rumor surrounding an Air Jordan 4 “Rare Air Laser” pair for 2025.

Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, an early look at MM6 Maison Margiela and Salomon’s latest project saw the X-ALP surface in two colorways that are more calm than the duo’s previous work together. Rounding things out, New Balance had a busy week with a teaser of a 574 Legacy pair designed by Stone Island, another Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 1000 colorway teaser and a The Basement-approved 1906D.

With all of the past week’s top headlines reviewed, let’s go ahead and check out this week’s lineup of major releases, starting with the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Latte.” Once you finish scrolling through the list, don’t forget to hit up HBX to shop styles that are available now.
