The stage is set for both the 2024 NBA Finals and the 2024 NHL Stanley Cup Finals. The Boston Celtics are due to host game one against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday, while the Edmonton Oilers are en route to Sunrise to face off in game one against the Florida Panthers. In the meantime, footwear brands including Nike, ASICS, Crocs, Converse and Jordan Brand are all set to deliver significant sneaker launches throughout the week. Before we dive into the week’s most important drops, let’s look back at what key headlines have emerged during the past seven days.

Starting with the slate of footwear features, we sat down with NBA champions-turned-podcast-hosts Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson to discuss their show and its upcoming tour, sneakers and their NBA Finals predictions. We also took the time to chat with Mark Ong aka “Mr Sabotage” to discuss SBTG, Limited Edt and ASICS’ latest entry in their long-running “Monsoon Patrol” series as they now see two GEL-KAYANO 14 colorways dropping under the theme.

As for the traditional news, Jacquemus and HUF each made noise by formally announcing their Nike collaborations across the Air Max 1 ‘86 and Air Max 1 respectively. After an early rumor arrived previously this year, we now have a first look at a new COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS x Nike Air Foamposite One “Olympic” colorway as well. Rounding out the Swoosh’s collaborative news, a detailed look at Trophy Room’s “Home” colorway of its Air Jordan 1 Low OG project hit the net.

Elsewhere in the sneaker space, adidas brought forth another wave of YEEZY launches with everything from the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 to the YEEZY SLIDE involved. From there, a myriad of collaborations caught our eye with Aimé Leon Dore’s Teddy Santis revealing all three pairs from the label’s forthcoming New Balance 1000 campaign, MM6 Maison Margiela and Salomon followed up on a leak back in May to share details of their X-ALP collection, Nicole McLaughlin flexed a new version of her HOKA Mafate THREE2 and COMME des GARÇONS returned with another absurd Salomon sneaker, this time priced at approximately $2,961 USD.

With all of the past week’s headlines reviewed, let’s go ahead and take a peek at what we can expect from the next seven days of sneaker drops. Afterwards, don’t forget to hit up HBX to shop styles that are available now.

The former stands out with its colorful arrangement that pays homage to the practice of farming, harvest and growth.

Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Girl Dad”

Release Date: June 7
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: As Nike Basketball continues to reintroduce the Kobe line, the Kobe 4 Protro is one of three silhouettes to play a key role in its lineup of launches this year. Its latest look celebrates a special moment between Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi when they were courtside at a game together. Its “Bicoastal Green” upper references the Philadelphia Eagles beanie he had on that day while its “Total Orange” sockliner serves as a callout to the WNBA hoodie he was sporting. A chrome heel clip backs the upper while an icy translucent outsole offers court-ready traction. From there a “Girl Dad” embroidered note at the tongue’s interior ties the theme together.

The Shop x Nike LeBron 21

Release Date: June 7
Release Price: $210 USD

Why You Should Cop: One of LeBron James’ many off-court endeavors is The Shop — a barbershop-themed talk show that he and Maverick Carter are hosts of. With six seasons of the show to date, the two have crafted a celebratory colorway of James’ LeBron 21 that is drenched in a “Metallic Gold” across its upper. Black contrast is delivered at the medial Swoosh and heel alongside The Shop’s logo while an off-white chimes in at the court-ready sole unit.
