It’s hard to believe we’re already in August. But that just means the highly anticipated Off-White x Nike Dunk sneaker releases will be taking place. Alongside that huge 50 lot release will be a plethora of retros and collaborations from other brands. So let’s jump right into it for this week’s sneaker releases.

 

Off-White x Nike Dunk Low “Lot 1 of 50” / “Lot 50 of 50”

There are 50 variations of the Nike Dunk Low releasing this month in collaboration with Off-White to celebrate “defining the grey area between black and white.” Virgil Abloh’s obsession with the original white/grey Dunk as well as the color spectrum lends us a white and black Lot 1 and Lot 50 respectively – each one with the silver Swoosh his collaborations have come to be known for. EM PTY Gallery had a raffle early this week for both of these pairs and only time will tell when other retailers start their raffles so keep your eyes open. Nike also broke down how Exclusive Access works in SNKRS app, where some lucky members will be blessed.

 

Release Date: August 2021
Retail: N/A
Resell pre-release: $1,900 – $2,200 (Lot 1)/$2,150 (Lot 50)

 

Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals HU NMD “N.E.R.D.”

Pharrell and adidas are back with another HU NMD silhouette and this time they celebrate the star’s iconic duo that also featured bandmate Chad Hugo. N.E.R.D. aka The Neptunes, have been in the game for over 20 years and this colorway brings some vibrant summer hues perfectly suited for the group that put Virginia Beach on the map. Hit up Confirmed app and select retailers to cop.

 

Release Date: August 6, 2021
Retail: $220
Resell pre-release: $290 – $3,000 (large sizes)

 

FDMTL x Vault by Vans “Indigo” Pack

Japanese denim experts FDMTL (pronounced fundamental) have teamed up with Vans Vault for a sick trio of classic silhouettes dripping in an indigo jacquard cotton denim that’s already distressed. The three models chosen are the OG Classic Slip-On, OG Authentic LX and the OG Sk8-Hi LX. The premium black rubber outsole perfectly contrasts the blue hues of the upper and these are great for any season. Hit up retailers like Extra Butter and Feature to enter raffles.

 

Release Date: August 7, 2021
Retail: $200 (Slip-On/Authentic), $220 (Sk8-Hi)
Resell pre-release: N/A

 

sacai x Nike Blazer Low “British Tan”

Following the orange, green and black colorways that released previously, a tan and red variation of the sacai x Nike Blazer Low is hitting retailers this week. We like this one the best because of the way the colors mesh and because it just gives off dope earthy tones and scream perfect summer festival footwear. If you’re trying to cop, hit up SNKRS app and select retailer raffles.

 

Release Date: August 10, 2021
Retail: $120
Resell pre-release: $140 – $220
