In the meantime, Fall/Winter 2024 projects are rolling out and brands from the footwear industry including Nike, adidas, Jordan Brand, New Balance and Li-Ning are joining in on the fun this week with the launch of an exciting array of sneaker releases. Before we give you the full rundown of what to expect from the next seven days, let’s go ahead and review the past week’s key footwear headlines.

Starting off with a loaded lineup of features, Nike returned with its second annual SNKRS Showcase livestream — highlighting over 30 sneaker releases that are set to take place in the next year. We also took a look at the best footwear trends at Paris Fashion Week, with the Wales Bonner x adidas project continuing to catch eyes. The third and final footwear feature involved a round-up of the best NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas sneakers, assembled in celebration of the return of their OG Superstar collaboration from 2005.

As for the traditional news palette, Nike had a busy Paris Fashion Week with key reveals including NIGO rocking a pair of collaborative Air Force 3 Lows at the KENZO show and sacai revealing its three colorways of the Zegamadome. From the aforementioned SNKRS Showcase, a reveal of 2025’s Air Foamposite One “Galaxy” had sneakerheads talking. As for Jordan Brand, we caught a first look at a special all-white Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low OG for guests of Michael Rubin’s “White Party.”

Elsewhere in the sneaker space, a slew of new collaborations brought forth fresh excitement as Action Bronson teased his New Balance Minimus Trail and AURALEE revealed its New Balance 475 for Spring/Summer 2025. Pharrell and adidas also made noise with the larger-than-life Superstar 92 while Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled his OTW by Vans Old Skool project.
