Best Sneakers Releasing This Week

Air Jordan 4 Infrared

Jordan Brand continues to deliver their Summer 2022 collection with the Air Jordan 4 Infrared.

The Air Jordan 4 Infrared features a tonal grey Durabuck upper with black TPU mesh inserts, tech straps, and heel tabs. Hits of Infrared on the lacing system and woven Jordan Flight tongue label add a sharp contrast to the neutral-toned base. From there, a white sole with visible Air units completes the design.

The Air Jordan 4 Infrared releases on Wednesday, June 15th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.

adidas Yeezy 700 Hi-Res Red

Similar to the Yeezy Foam RNNR Vermillion, Yeezy explores a vibrant red palette with the adidas Yeezy 700 Hi-Res Red.

The adidas Yeezy 700 Hi-Res Red arrives with a bright red mesh and suede upper with black and grey suede overlays at the toe. In a different style from the original Yeezy 700s, the design opts for a fully circular lacing system, meaning that the ends of the laces are connected, eliminating a need for a bow on the shoe. This lacing system is similar to recent Yeezy 350s and 380s like the Onyx and Calcite Glow. At the base, a sculptural clay red Boost sole with hits of teal and bright orange provide cushioning and support.

The adidas Yeezy 700 Hi-Res Red releases on Friday, June 17th for $300 on the adidas CONFIRMED app, Yeezy Supply, and in select shops.

Puma MB.01 Lo LaMelo Ball UFO

LaMelo Ball’s first signature shoe gets the low-top treatment for the Puma MB.01 Low UFO.

Continuing the storyline that LaMelo’s on-court skills and swagger are not of this planet, the Puma MB.01 Lo UFO draws inspiration from UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and their radiant tractor beams. It is constructed with a light grey mesh and ripstop upper with reinforced seams and embroidered bird wing detailing similar to that of the high-top iteration. Geared for an explosive style of play, a Puma Hoops Nitro Foam midsole delivers maximum responsiveness and stability. Bright blue semi-translucent outsoles and sock lining add the finishing touch.

The Puma MB.01 Lo UFO releases on Thursday, June 16th for $120 on the Puma website and in select retailers.

Stüssy x Converse All-Star 70s Hi & One Star

Following last week’s Stüssy-exclusive release, the Stüssy x Converse All-Star 70s Hi and One Star are officially releasing globally.

The Stüssy x Converse All-Star 70s Hi and One Star reimagine Converse’s iconic star logo with Shawn Stüssy’s eclectic stylization. Utilizing a thick black canvas as their bases, each design boasts an elongated star embroidery on its lateral side. White vulcanized soles with matching toe caps and contrast stitching follow a format nodding to the original line of Chuck Taylor All-Stars. A Stüssy logo on the inside face of each tongue delivers a custom feel.

The Stüssy x Converse All-Star 70s Hi and One Star release on Thursday, June 16th for $100 and $110 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.

adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN Laceless Phosphor

The Yeezy 700 MNVN Phosphor gets a new, laceless look with the adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN Laceless Phosphor.

While the adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN Laceless Phosphor does have the same bright yellow nylon upper and reflective motocross-inspired 700 graphics as the original Phosphor release, there are two key differences. First of all, this design is laceless as stated in the name. Its slip-on entry is perfect for those who love the convenience of a Foam RNNR but want a little more protection. Secondly, its Boost midsole is white instead of black, altering the overall look but still delivering the same, premium cushioning.

The adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN Laceless Phosphor releases on Monday, June 13th for $220 on the adidas CONFIRMED app, Yeezy Supply, and in select stores.

Maharishi x Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ

London-based label Maharishi joined forces with Reebok for the Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ Maharishi.

Following Maharishi’s signature utilitarian aesthetic, the Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ Maharishi features a dark olive canvas upper with matching suede and black ripstop overlays. Traditional Reebok branding on the forefoot is replaced with Maharishi labeling. At the base, a black foam sole with a gum underfoot completes this collaborative design.

The Maharishi x Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ releases on Friday, June 17th for $150 on the Reebok website and in select retailers.
