With summer quickly coming to a close, to no one’s delight, we can expect brands to start pushing out holiday sneakers soon. This week’s offerings are diverse and give us a glimpse of the final days of summer, let’s jump right into it.


Air Jordan 1 Low “Starfish”

Often slept on because of its iconic high-top counterpart, the AJ1 Low is just as sleek and sexy in my opinion. Arriving in a bright mix between red and orange, this ode to warmer weather colorway is the perfect pair for anyone that doesn’t have a pair of Chicago 1’s in the rotation. Hit up SNKRS app for the drop.


Release Date: August 26, 2021

sacai x fragment x Nike LDWaffle “Blackened Blue”

Part of sacai’s Fall 2021 collaborative Nike footwear lineup, fragment design is brought in as a third party and adds their signature midsole branding. One of the most popular silhouettes for both men and women across the world, these will be in heavy demand thanks to the beautiful marriage of mesh and suede in the dark blue hue.
