Best Sneakers This Week
It may be the offseason, but Lamelo Ball is still putting numbers on the board. The Puma MB.01 Lo UFO just recently became the most-traded Puma shoe in June 2022, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that all ten of the best-selling Puma shoes of the year are LaMelo Ball shoes.
Last week, the Reebok Club C Tyrrell Winston became the most-sold Reebok of the year on StockX. Alongside a limited-edition Question, the Club C was the first-ever sneaker collaboration for the Detroit-based contemporary artist, and our numbers suggest that it shouldn’t be the last. Since releasing back in May, it has already outsold major Reebok collaborations with Maison Margiela, Ghostbusters, and BAPE.
Most Expensive Sneaker This Week
Exclusive pairs of Air Force 1s from Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton x Nike collaboration are starting to hit the market and the results are astonishing. In the past week, a pair of the Nike Air Force 1 Low Louis Vuitton White Green sold for an astronomical price of $11,130, becoming the most expensive Air Force 1 of all time on StockX. It’s only a matter of time before more pairs surface and records are shattered – this collection is a celebration of Abloh’s creative accomplishments and legacy.
Best Sneakers Releasing This Week
Jordan Brand expands its Air Jordan 1 catalog with the Bleached Coral Pack.
Including High and Low models, the Air Jordan 1 Bleached Coral Pack presents neutral and warm tones in familiar color blocking for a classic look. The Air Jordan 1 High Bleached Coral features a Black Toe-inspired look with a smooth white leather upper, cracked black leather overlays, and a light grey suede heel wrap. The low-top Air Jordan 1 Low Bleached Coral arrives in a similar format, except it offers a more vibrant look with Bleached Coral suede vamps and heel wraps.
The Air Jordan 1 Bleached Coral Pack releases on Saturday, July 2nd for $130 and $170 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.
If you missed out on last week’s release of the Nike Cortez Union LA Sesame at Union LA, you will have another chance.
According to Union LA, the Nike Cortez Union LA Sesame nods to Los Angeles’ Chicano culture and their influence in popularizing the Cortez. It features a Mexican serape-inspired woven upper with brown and red suede overlays. A Crater Foam midsole composed of at least 10% recycled materials offers cushioning and support. From there, Union LA woven tags on the tongue and eyestay add a custom feel.
The Nike Cortez Union LA Sesame releases on Tuesday, June 28th for $130 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.
New Balance 990 MIUSA Macadamia Pack
The third release of Teddy Santis’ New Balance Made In USA collection is here with the New Balance 990 MIUSA Macadamia Pack.
Incorporating New Balance 990v1 and 990v3 silhouettes, the New Balance 990 MIUSA Macadamia Pack boasts tonal brown premium suede and mesh uppers, exemplifying New Balance’s renowned quality. Black New Balance side logos and piping add a contrast to each design’s pale base. On the 990v3, the responsive ENCAP midsole offers step-in comfort, maximizing its utility as a daily driver.
The New Balance 990 MIUSA Macadamia Pack releases on Thursday, June 30th for $190 and $200 on the New Balance website and in select retailers.
Jordan Brand references one of the original 1985 Air Jordan colorways with the Air Jordan 1 Low Mystic Navy.
At first glance, the Air Jordan 1 Low Mystic Navy looks a lot like a low-top version of the Air Jordan 1 Royal. It arrives with a black and blue smooth leather construction and identical color blocking and detailing, but instead of a royal blue, this iteration opts for a darker Mystic Navy. This shoe is a viable option if you have been wanting a more traditional-looking Air Jordan 1 without creasing your wallet.
The Air Jordan 1 Low Mystic Navy releases on Thursday, June 30th for $130 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.
Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara LX (Women’s)
French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus teams up with Nike for a luxe take on the hiking-friendly Nike Air Humara.
Arriving in Beige and Brown colorways, the Nike Air Humara LX Jacquemus is constructed of a smooth leather upper with brown hairy suede overlays and striped exterior ribbons. A pendant-like golden Nike mini Swoosh graces each side of the upper in an elegant fashion. At the base, a sculptural, jagged gum outsole is versatile enough for the streets and the trails. These sneakers are certainly a throwback to the hiking-inspired sneakers that were popularized by brands like Lugz in the 1990s, more evidence of the grunge fashion resurgence.
The Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara LX releases on Tuesday, June 28th on the Jacquemus website. Prices have not been announced yet.
Nike is offering what could be the third element to your Canadian tuxedo with the Nike Dunk High Denim (Women’s).
Joining a high tradition of Denim Dunks like the Nike SB Dunk Low Reese Forbes and Dunk Low CL Denim, the Nike Dunk High Denim (Women’s) arrives with a tumbled white leather upper with bleached denim overlays and smooth red leather Swooshes. To coincide with the design’s throwback aesthetic, a slightly yellowed sole provides an aged look. Plus, if you already have a denim jacket and jeans (or jorts), this pair could complete a look fit for the 2001 American Music Awards.
The Nike Dunk High Denim (Women’s) releases on Wednesday, June 29th for $125 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.
