With both the NBA and NHL Finals wrapping up this week, unless the Edmonton Oilers force a seventh game that is, there’s bound to be waves of bliss and anguish amongst the winners and losers respectively. For those invested in the outcomes, the footwear industry is still serving up plenty of releases to either celebrate with, or pick up as a consolation prize. MSCHF, Jordan Brand, Nike, New Balance and adidas have all prepared releases worth checking out. However, before we let you know which drops you should mark on your calendar, let’s review the past week’s key footwear news.

On the feature side of things, we caught up with HUF creative director Romeo Tanghal to break down how the brand’s latest project with Nike on the Air Max 1 is dedicated to the “real heads.” The Swoosh was also in the news as LeBron James flexed a wear test sample of his upcoming Nike LeBron 22. Another early preview we spotted was of a Nike SB-designed Air Force 1 Low that is rumored to be releasing next year. As for its Jumpman-wielding subsidiary, the Air Jordan 4 RM made three official image appearances — surfacing in “Oxidized Green,” “Black/Light Bone” and “Light Legend Brown.” Meanwhile, the rumor mill stayed busy with word of the Air Jordan 3 arriving in “Valentine’s Day” and “Lucky Shorts”-themed looks in 2025.

Elsewhere in the industry, adidas had two of its forthcoming collaborative projects revealed — the adidas Fear of God Athletics 1 “Black Toe” and JJJJound x adidas Samba “Tobacco” alongside its accompanying apparel range. Other collaboration-oriented news involved Ronnie Fieg revealing two colorways of the ASICS GEL-KAYANO 12.1 that he designed and a closer look at Salehe Bembury’s upcoming New Balance 530 project.

Now that you’re caught up with the latest and greatest from the world of sneakers, let’s take a look at what ten sneaker releases you should have on your radar this week. Afterwards, don’t forget to check out HBX to shop styles that are available now.

ACRONYM x MSCHF Super Normal

Release Date: June 18
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: MSCHF
Why You Should Cop: The technical apparel purveyors over at ACRONYM are back with another footwear project, teaming up with MSCHF on its Super Normal after working with Nike for many years. Equipped with an ACRONYM-branded zipper system that is similar to the brand’s Nike Lunar Force 1s from 2015 and 2017, the wavy sneaker boasts a fusion of ACRONYM’s function-oriented design language and MSCHF’s playful chaos.

Nina Chanel Abney x Air Jordan 3

Release Date: June 20
Release Price: $225 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: For everyone who failed to win the raffle — or in my case, failed to enter it at all due to the overwhelming amount of web traffic — for Nina Chanel Abney’s Air Jordan 3s, Nike is set to offer a second chance at grabbing a pair with its own release of the artsy kicks. Equipped with a “Bicoastal” green that is complemented by sections of off-white and then accented by hits of orange, the design is one of the 36-year-old silhouette’s most unique to date.

Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 1000 “Cream”

Release Date: June 20
Release Price: $165 USD
Where to Buy: New Balance
Why You Should Cop: Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance are back at it again as Teddy Santis continues to juggle not only an array of New Balance projects via his brand, but as the leader of the American sportswear brand’s MADE in USA division as well. Last week the two launched their three colorways of the newly-returned 1000 silhouette as the model continues to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Now, a restock of the “Cream” colorway is set to take place for anyone that missed out — sporting a versatile arrangement of white, gray and cream hues.

Nike ACG Rufus “Black”

Release Date: June 20
Release Price: $110 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: One of many Nike ACG models included in the Swoosh’s first SNKRS Showcase event was the ACG Rufus. It later found itself debuting in “Limestone and Black” back in May and is now set to return on an all-black finish. Its upper again carries a suede material composition while a plush midsole and grippy outsole combine for it to rightfully sport the “All Conditions Gear” name.

NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Superstar “Ink Black”

Release Date: June 21 and 22
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: adidas and HBX
Why You Should Cop: 19 years ago, NEIGHBORHOOD and adidas created an important piece of sneaker history with their collaborative take on the Superstar that celebrated the model’s 35th anniversary. Now, with NEIGHBORHOOD enjoying its 30th anniversary, the two are commemorating the occasion by revisiting their first project. With it limited to just 300 pairs back in 2005, this widespread launch of the recreation is sure to satisfy many collectors who have been after a pair for decades. Key details include a black upper accented by NEIGHBORHOOD motifs in white, as well as an off-white sole unit and black shell toe.

RTFKT x Nike Dunk Genesis “Void”

Release Date: June 21
Release Price: $222 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Nike’s acquisition of Web3 platform RTFKT has led to many projects between the two, often existing in both the digital and physical spaces. Their latest team-up is the conclusion to the rollout of the Dunk Genesis “Void” as the remaining 1,000 pairs of the 11,394 total are set to drop via SNKRS. Inspired by video games, this take on the Dunk silhouette features removable mods and interchangeable vials, which can be recreated thanks to RTFKT’s 3D files that are available on its site.

Song for the Mute x adidas Shadowturf

Release Date: June 21
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: adidas
Why You Should Cop: It’s been a couple of years since Song for the Mute and adidas first teamed up to introduce their collaborative Shadowturf design. Launching it with a mere 100 pairs as an APAC-exclusive in “Cream White,” the colorway is set to make its global debut alongside a new all-black “Carbon” version. Both feature layered builds, with the former favoring a diverse color palette while the latter dons its own material composition featuring raw hems at its overlays.

Air Jordan 1 High ‘85 “Metallic Burgundy”

Release Date: June 22
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: As the Air Jordan 1 is set to celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, it’s sure to receive plenty of special attention, including a myriad of rumored Travis Scott collaborations on the low-top version of the model. In the meantime, the original ‘85 shape is set to make a return this week, sporting the OG “Metallic Burgundy” colorway, one of the most rare iterations of the original shoe. A white leather upper is accented by its signature red hue at the Swooshes, collar branding, collar base and rubber outsole.

HUF x Nike Air Max 1 “Pear Green”

Release Date: June 22
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: With a week chock full of retro-inspired releases, Nike is adding to the fun by hosting its own drop of the “Pear Green” version of HUF’s Air Max 1. With HUF having launched its complete collection of all three original pairs from 2004 last week, this is another opportunity to pick up one of the duo’s most sought-after creations.

Air Jordan 11 Low “Legend Pink”

Release Date: June 22
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: The Air Jordan 11 Low has been a staple in recent seasonal Jordan Brand arrangements, offering the chance to sport the beloved silhouette with greater off-court versatility. Arriving now in a women’s “Legend Pink,” pink and white complement each other across the sneaker. The shoe’s signature patent leather mudguard sports the former while white covers the remainder of the upper. As for the sole unit, a white midsole rests atop a semi-translucent pink outsole.
