The majority of this week’s sneaker releases have been on sneakerhead radars for a minute. Whether its the highly anticipated New Balance 574 YURT from Salehe Bembury or the legendary and long-awaited Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough,” they’re finally here. So let’s jump right into it.

 

Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals Forum 84 Low “Money Wings”

Returning to adidas this year, Jeremy Scott and the brand once again offer up his iconic Wings design. To pay homage to the 2003 version that set off the partnership, the duo have opted for the Forum silhouette as the canvas for Scott’s $100 bill graphic – a nod to the sneaker’s original price tag in 1984. If you are all about loud kicks, these can be yours via CONFIRMED app and select retailers like Feature and Extra Butter.

 

Release Date: October 21, 2021
Retail: $150
Resell pre-release: $200 – $380

 

Saquon Barkley x Nike Air Trainer 3

While the star running back for the Giants is currently recovering from injuries sustained on the field, his off the field drip is kept intact thanks to this Nike collaboration. Nike’s known to work magic with Giants players like Victor Cruz and this re-imagined Bo Jackson classic by the latest NY star combines both rich history and personal touches. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: October 22, 2021
Retail: $140
Resell pre-release: $560 – $900

 

Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough”

Images of this sneaker have been circulating for years now, especially around the time of 420. It’s no surprise because the detailing on these is insane. Designer Todd Bratrud, who’s done handfuls of collabs with SB including both versions of the “Send Help,” “Brain Wreck,” “Skunk,” “Cheech and Chong,” “The Cigar” and “Black Widow,” puts just as much detail into this pair. With velvet ear flaps, custom strawberry sockliner and embroidered heel, plus the strawberry mimicking texture on the upper and hidden stash pocket, these are a must. Skate shop accounts like Extra Butter will have these first followed by SNKRS app.

 

Release Date: October 22, 2021 (Skate shops), October 26, 2021 (SNKRS app)
Retail: $110
Resell pre-release: $525 – $2,000

 

Salehe Bembury x New Balance 574 “YURT” MS574YV1

Designer Salehe Bembury works magic with his New Balance collaborations. Constantly inspired by the outdoors, his latest YURT collection is no different. A follow-up to his “Peace Be The Journey” and “Water Be The Guide” issues, these two “Universal Communication” silhouettes take inspiration from their namesake, the yurt – which is a round tent covered with skins or felt. Meshing together elements from the Test Run 3.0, 990v3 and 755 onto the 574 creates a whole new beast for the outdoors and we love it. Add in ABZORB SBS cushioning and ROLLBAR support and you can definitely go hiking in these. Did we mention the usable whistle on the heel?! Hit up newbalance.com to cop both the shark skin with white and team forest green with burgundy or hit up retailers like Extra Butter to enter raffles.

 

Release Date: October 22, 2021
Retail: $150
Resell pre-release: $300 – $1,200 (White), $260 – $900 (Green)
