Kanye West’s adidas Yeezy line is gearing up for the fall with a comprehensive slate of new silhouettes, fresh releases, and bold styles, one of which is the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Citrin.” The shoe’s knit, socklike upper provides a soft, seasonally-appropriate earthy hue, while the signature monofilament side stripe adds a a bold strike of contrast with its semi-translucent stylings. The midsole then offers a slightly yellowed tint that’s accented by a reddish outsole, heel, and toe piece that’s almost gum in its presentation. A full-foot Boost cushioning system provides a finishing touch with its signature comfort. As is par for the course with adidas Originals and West’s recent spate of Yeezy 350 releases, the Yeezy 350 Citrin will be available in full family sizes when they release on September 23rd, with the men’s pairs retailing for $220 USD, kids for $160 USD, and infants for $140 USD.

After offering a first look at the new Air Skarn back in July, Nike ACG is back with its latest take on the chunky silhouette. The Air Skarn was created in 1997 by Tinker Hatfield and a team of designers, whose aim was to inject a sense of sportiness to the traditional hiking silhouette – the result was a hefty mold that saw a large area of lightweight mesh, enlivening the spirit of outdoor adventure.
Treated with a nebulous “Sequoia/Vivid Purple” colorway, the hiking shoes see a plethora of rugged fabric layers stacked over a substantial midsole. At the top of the sneaker, a touch of black suede is placed at the tongue with subtle “Air” branding next to a mini-Swoosh. Pink and purple highlights appear over rope-style piping that frames the upper collar, wrapping around the heel and looping back up from the edges of the forefoot. Round black laces are contrasted against purple mesh overlays, complete with bright yellow triple-stitching that circles around the top panels. The mudguard comes in black nubuck atop a white rubber midsole, while a “bright citron”-colored insert and a branded heel cap finish off the sneaker.
September will be packed with new takes on popular Air Jordan retro models including another camo edition of the Air Jordan 10, and the “FIBA” Air Jordan 4 in celebration of the FIBA World Cup basketball tournament.

In addition, fans are treated to a handful of new releases including the Air Jordan 3 “Knicks,” Air Jordan 12 “Game Royal,” and the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “First Class Flight.”

After being reintroduced to the market by way of last year’s Supreme collaboration, Nike’s classic 1997 Air Humara trail runner has since been made available in several bright and bold color schemes, the latest of which to release is entitled “Elemental Gold.” Featuring a wild mis-match of textures, colors and patterns on the upper, the shoe boasts a bold purple/aqua combination on its lateral and medial sides, all overlaid with a tan leather. A simple black/grey adorns the toebox and throat, while even more turquoise accents and a small swatch of reflective material on the heel add an extra pop of flair to the already-loud silhouette. A dotted black/white midsole and black outsole with heavy-duty off road tread complete the chunky, rugged look. This bold Humara will release on Nike.com May 24th for $140 USD.
One of Nike’s most heralded trail running shoes in history is the Nike Air Humara, a mid/late-1990s creation by the now-retired Peter Fogg. Like many of the Swoosh brand’s cult hits, the Air Humara wasn’t exactly a top seller from the get-go and the creation process wasn’t entirely smooth. Despite that, the Air Humara defied expectations as it became a favorite for roaming city streets, although its maturation in the 21st century wasn’t exactly textbook. One on hand, it was the focus one of the most underrated collaborations in history with SF’s True sneaker boutique. On the other, it was hybridized with Air Max soles and sadly left to rot on clearance shelves. The Air Humara’s return was, of course, kickstarted by a collaboration with Supreme. With the Air Humara back on the radar, Nike brought back some original colorways alongside impressive camo-print iterations. Thankfully, the Blue Spark/Carotene colorway from 1996 is finally coming back on August 9th; hopefully it’ll get a bit more love than it did over two decades ago.
The deadly black mamba snake has a long history in the world of sneakers. Before it became associated with Kobe Bryant, it served as the design inspiration for the Air Jordan 19 in 2004. The shoe’s sleek and unique serpentine aesthetic made it one of the most popular signature Jordan models of the mid-00’s. Now the snake-inspired signature sneaker is set for a re-release 15 years after it originally dropped, as it’s returning to market in April 2019. Set to arrive in a classic black/gold colorway, the shoe will likely feature a black patent leather toebox, large tonal black mesh lace cover, and regal gold detailing on the heel collar and outsole. We’ve got a ways yet to wait until this cult-classic Jordan returns, but until then you can stay up to date on all things Jordan with our Jordan Release Dates page.
Serving as the first shoe that released after Michael Jordan’s playing career was over, the Jordan Brand is set to release a retro version of the Air Jordan 19 “Flint” colorway during January of next year. With MJ no longer on the court to spell the mystique around the footwear, the heralded brand looked to superstars the likes of up-and-coming Carmelo Anthony and league veterans like Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, and Ray Allen to carry the torch. Melo himself favored this particular colorway numerous times during the 2004 season as a member of the Denver Nuggets, and given the special MELO call-out on the insoles, these may be a tribute to the long-time brand representative. Inspired by the sport of fencing, the Air Jordan 19 boast an unmistakable shroud, meant to resemble a fencer’s mask, that comes adorned in Tech Flex technology, garnering the wearer incredible lockdown and flexibility. Coated in Flint Grey, it is undoubtedly this particular iteration’s focal point, while it also comes supported by flashes of Chrome on its Jumpman branding and “23” hits right atop its aforementioned shroud. Angelic white patent leather takes up most of the room on this upcoming drop, with a small coating of red taking shape on its Roman numerals mark underneath its tongue. Enjoy and official look at this flint-colored Air Jordan 19 below and expect pairs to touch down at retailers on January 5th with a higher-than-usual MSRP of $225 USD.
Kanye West‘s adidas Yeezy line has been dominating the collaborative footwear market in 2019 with a veritable plethora of compelling releases, and the latest makeup to join their ranks is the elegant Yeezy 500 “Bone White.” Although the 500 has been mostly quiet this year after serving as a major player in 2018’s Yeezy lineup, it still boasts a rabid fanbase and offers a look that differs significantly from the rest of the line. Here, that look is presented in light tones, thanks to a signature layered that offers both airy white mesh and earthy light grey suede. The white midsole discards the Boost cushioning found on other models in favor of classic adiPRENE, while the outsole takes on an ever-so-slight cream tint for a tonal contrast. The “Bone White” is set to arrive at retailers in full family sizes — an interesting first for the Yeezy 500 — on August 24th. Men’s sizes are priced at $200 USD, kids at $130 USD, and infants at an even $100 USD, so check out a store list below to see where you can secure your pair(s) come release day. Notes: Several retailers release their Yeezy stock at random times on launch day. Retailers that have provided a specific time will have that time listed. Other boutiques typically release via an in-store or online raffle. Please contact your local shop for further information.
Nike’s Huarache Edge is a stripped-down, streamlined take on one of the Swoosh Brand’s most famous running silhouettes of all time: the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Huarache. While some of the Edge’s details — namely the neoprene sockliner and circular tongue badge — harken back to the 1991 classic, the rest of the shoe is vastly different, featuring a new lacing system, abstract-shaped leather panels, and a large plastic heel piece. However, a true modified classic never forgets its roots — so the Huarache Edge has received a handful of OG-style colorways, the lastest of which to surface is this classic combo of purple, yellow, and white. Purple is applied liberally across the entire neoprene sockliner, while yellow is called upon more conservatively, used to provide accents on the collar, heel, and midfoot. A white mesh toebox and black heel detailing then complete the look. This new-age take on an icon will release in China January 1st and then roll out to US retailers and Nike.com in the forthcoming weeks, so check out a full set of official images below while you wait for the drop.
Following a very vast and bold roll out of their newest Air Huarache silhouette — dubbed intricately as the EDGE TXT — a set of more tonal releases is geared to top off the line-up, offering up a range of subtlety and versatility. While a huge departure from the wild transformations seen previously and released at the advent of 2019, the two forthcoming colorways, a rich red and navy blue, have unveiled themselves in full glory. The complex panelling of the upper alongside the sock-like construction exhibits a variety of textural materials: the forefoot utilizing a more glossy synthetic while the rest dressed in a nylon and sultry suede. The sole unit is left a contrasting white with the oversized caps maintaining a black tone. Check out official images below, and be sure to stay tuned as these are sure to hit Nike.com and select retailers very soon.
Fresh off their collaborations with ASICS, high-end imprint Vivienne Westwood is expanding rapidly, matching that of the “fearless individualism” expressed by Anaheim’s very own Vans. In departure, however, the collaborations are aligned under the stalwart’s diffusion label “Anglomania,” with a destructive, almost vandalistic approach being pushed in the checkerboard donning teaser imagery. While there’s not much information in the way of what silhouettes or what styles are set to unveil, it’s clear to be ripe with maximal imagery and a small tinge of “evil,” likely fusing the design language of both with nothing arriving watered down. If you find your interest piqued, be sure to sit tight for official details on appearance and release. UPDATE: The capsule, which includes both a postal themed SK8-Hi and logo printed Authentic, has just been revealed — see them in full detail below.
Known for their prep-infused, sailing-meets-street aesthetic and fierce commitment to sustainability, New York-based Noah is one of the most unique brands on the market today, and they’ve now joined forces with Vans for two new printed takes on the cult favorite Chukka MS as part of their FW 19 collection. Each pair boasts a mid-cut upper constructed of Scottish wool that foregoes a standard lacing system in favor of a stately silver buckle-and-eyelet getup. Combined with the duo of prints presented — one tartan plaid, one gingham — this makes for a hybrid look that falls somewhere in between sneaker, dress shoe, and boot, perfectly in line with Noah’s elegant yet inherently sporty brand ethos. Each is then completed with a black midsole and vulcanized gum outsole. Of course, Noah is no stranger to Vans collaborations, having last worked with the Cali footwear company on two Vans Sk8-Hi Decons and two Chukka MS in 2018, but this second effort takes their partnership in a bold new direction. Both pairs will release on the Noah webstore come September 12th, so enjoy a first look right here in the meantime.
A focal point of Stranger Things‘ third season, the Starcourt Mall is home to both Scoops Ahoy, and — more importantly — a secret Russian base with a portal to the Upside Down buried deep underneath its air conditioned halls. These plot points are now serving as inspiration for the beloved series’ third set of collaborative Nike shoes, one of which is this new Nike Cortez. Although they may seem like a simple tan canvas sneaker with show-themed tongue tags, the devil’s in the hidden details here. The insoles feature hand-scrawled graphics that nod to a recognizable quote and the Mind Flayer-enabling portal, and if you’re adventurous enough to remove ’em, you’ll also see a memorable radio transmission in both English and Russian. The upper may very well boast special embellishments of its own, as the similarly-styled Nike Tailwind that was premiered by BAIT for SDCC in July also offered a burn-away construction that you could singe off to reveal a hidden layer. A classic white midsole and toothed outsole finalize the look. These compelling Cortez will make contact with Nike.com on August 13th, so peruse official images below and see what unique embellishments you can spot in the meantime.
As true an homage to the series as any, the Stranger Things x Nike collaborations continue with its third and arguably most thrilling capsule thus far. Taking on a connecting motif across its three-part range, the Nike Cortez sports retro aesthetics in a likeness only the “Upside Down” could welcome. Fittingly dubbed as such, the entire exterior constructions feature a webbed texture almost mimicking the odious surroundings of the parallel world itself. In a connection the weakness of the many creatures at large, the tan-toned threads burn off to reveal the midnight indigo of the underlying denim fabrications, with swooshes taking shape thanks to the outline of the remaining frayed edges. Heel tabs, once revealed, are then adorned with the series logo in red type, matching the tongue tab that sports the Nike iconography. Small nods lie hidden throughout the insoles and its graphic footbed, further fleshing out a deep-seated love letter to the Netflix Original. Grab a detailed look at the pair — both burned and untouched — right below and find it rolling out to the select retailers listed below come August 13th.
