Another week of sneaker releases and this time, there’s a lot of different brands and styles to choose from. We love to see it. Whether you’re an OG and looking for some nostalgia, i.e. the AJKO, or in search of the freshest new collaboration, i.e. the 032c x adidas GSG Mule and TR, you can expect to spend your end-of-the-month payment with ease. Let’s jump right into it.


AJKO 1 “Storm Blue”

The AJKO 1 “Chicago” made a retro return back in May of this year and now a complementary blue pair is set to drop. When it comes to mixing leather, canvas and beautiful color palettes, this one is always ahead of the pack. Perfect for the fall, you’ll need to hit up SNKRS app to try your luck.


Release Date: September 29, 2021 (Today)
Retail: $140
Resell pre-release: $170 – $215


Billie Eilish x AJKO 1

For AJKO 1 fans looking for something a little different, there’s the Billie Eilish collaboration. She took the classic materials and swapped them for sustainable ones instead, with the whole sneaker made up of at least 20% recycled material by weight. She also covered the silhouette in a bright Lime Green and made some alterations to the tongue tag and paneling. Hit up SNKRS app to cop if you’re feeling these.


Release Date: September 30, 2021
Retail: $170
Resell pre-release: $215 – $370


032c x adidas Originals GSG Trail & Mule

Berlin-based fashion brand and media company 032c and adidas Originals have taken inspiration from the future and applied it to current footwear trends. The neoprene upper and lace-up vamp of the GSG Trail is done away with completely on the GSG Mule. Both feature metallic overlay and comfortable rubber outsoles. Personally, I’d take the Mule over the Trail. Hit up CONFIRMED app to cop and retailers like Feature.


Release Date: September 30, 2021
Retail: $160 (GSG Mule), $220 (GSG Trail)
Resell pre-release: N/A


BEAMS x Reebok Club C Laceless Mule

The Club C in all white does the same for Reebok fans as the Air Force 1 for Nike heads. Now, with the brilliant and minimalism-focused minds from Japanese brand BEAMS, the Club C ushers in a clean white mule style that’s perfect for homebody activities or a stylish day out on the town. The laceless look and clean white leather is brought together with just enough visible seams and co-branding. Hit up Reebok, Extra Butter and select retailers to cop.


Release Date: October 1, 2021
Retail: $120
Resell pre-release: $150



Air Jordan 5 “Orange Blaze” aka “Shattered Backboard”

The bright orange color in the Jordan Brand playbook has become synonymous with MJ’s dunk that shattered a backboard in Italy during a 1985 exhibition game. Now, the bright moniker makes its way onto the Air Jordan 5, which undergoes some material mash-ups as well. Leather and mesh as well as reflective 3M are brought together by the speckled shark-teeth midsole detail and burnt transparent outsole. Honestly, these are Halloween ready. Hit up SNKRS app and retailers like Feature.


Release Date: October 2, 2021
Retail: $190
Resell pre-release: $210 – $275


Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals Adilette “Teddy”

Jeremy Scott is back with the Three Stripes and creating crazy animal-themed footwear once again. His wildly successful “Teddy” design makes a return this weekend on a slide — vastly different from its high-top predecessor. The yellow base of the Adilette slide gives way to the furry yellow and solar orange of the bear and leather outlining. These are perfect for cuffing season, so hit up retailers like Feature and Extra Butter to cop.


Release Date: October 2, 2021
Retail: $80
Resell pre-release: N/A
