There’s a lot of fun sneaker releases lined up ahead of this Halloween weekend. Whether you’re into collaborations or not, there will be a little bit of everything for everyone this week. Let’s jump right into it.


Nike Air Force 1 Mid Jewel “NYC Cool Grey”

The “NYC” embroidered Uptowns are classic footwear staples from the best era of all-time – the late ’90s into the early ’00s. A serious staple in every New Yorker’s sneaker rotation, the icy grey with the translucent jewel Swoosh takes us back to our best memories. Grab these on SNKRS app and at select retailers like Extra Butter.


Release Date: October 28, 2021
Retail: $95
Resell pre-release: $110 – $170


Sean Wotherspoon x adidas Originals SST AEC “Superearth”

Following up on his Superturf sneakers from last month and his “Superearth” ZX 8000’s from April, Sean Wotherspoon and adidas Originals continue their ongoing partnership with a pair of reimagined Superstar sneakers. Featuring a leather upper as the backdrop, uncut strings forming embroidered flowers and logos are met with recycled toe caps and Earth-inspired lace locks. Hit up adidas app and select retailers like Feature to cop.


Release Date: October 28, 2021
Retail: $110
Resell pre-release: $140 – $300


sacai x UNDERCOVER x Nike LDWaffle collection

If you’re into primary colors with a fun twist, this trio of kicks from sacai, UNDERCOVER and Nike will bring a smile to your face. A familiar silhouette to sneakerheads everywhere now, the LDWaffle explores the blending of suede, leather and nylon on these pairs. We’ll let you decide which color to choose. You can cop the “Black and Bright Citron,” “Night Maroon and Team Royal” and “Midnight Spruce and University Red” pairs from SNKRS app and select retailers.


Release Date: October 29, 2021
Retail: $170
Resell pre-release: $270 – $475 (Yellow), $220 – $380 (Blue), $240 – $400 (Red)


Air Jordan 1 Mid SE “Siempre Familia”

With all the bashing of the Air Jordan 1 Mid that goes on throughout social media, I’m glad Jordan Brand chose to spotlight this model and celebrate culture. Part of the bigger Nike Día de Muertos pack, these “Siempre Familia” AJ1’s not only celebrate Mexican heritage but also represent the unbreakable bonds of families and welcomes everyone into the world of sports. The design is supposed to bring about Mictlán, “the journey of nine levels that celebrates the infinite power of family connection with loved ones.” Jaguar print is nothing to be messed with. Cop these via retailers like Feature and Extra Butter.


Release Date: October 29, 2021
Retail: $150
Resell pre-release: $190 – $660 (larger sizes)


Air Jordan 3 “Pine Green”

If you’re looking for a winning colorway formula, look no further than the “Black Cement” Air Jordan 3. Taking that beloved base and adding in some Pine Green was guaranteed to be a slam dunk by Jordan Brand. The nubuck leather is perfect for colder days, just don’t be caught near any Knicks fans with these on. Hit up SNKRS app and select retailers like Feature, END. and Extra Butter to cop. These are available in sizes for the entire family.


Release Date: October 30, 2021
Retail: $190 (Adults), $140 (Big Kids), $80 (Little Kids), $60 (Toddlers)
Resell pre-release: $230 – $275


adidas YEEZY 500 “Clay Brown”

Who doesn’t love a great pair of brown sneakers for the fall? Channeling his endless vocabulary for earthy tones, Kanye West’s YEEZY lineup will drop a “Clay Brown” rendition of the YEEZY 500 model this weekend. Whether you’ve come to love or hate the guy, one thing is certain, these will sell out. Make sure you have CONFIRMED app to cop.


Release Date: October 30, 2021
Retail: $200
Resell pre-release: $290 – $425
