Best Shoes This Week

Nike Dunk Low Panda White Black

Last week, the Nike Dunk Low Panda White Black was restocked once again, injecting a new wave of supply into the market to meet demand. As a result, trade volume soared for the design and it became the most sold sneaker of the week. It’s beginning to look like the Panda colorway is becoming a staple offering in Nike’s collection, a colorway that will continue to re-release throughout the year.

Air Jordan 1 Bleached Coral

Just behind the Panda Dunks, the Air Jordan 1 Bleached Coral was one of the most popular sneakers of the week. Featuring classic Black Toe color blocking, the Air Jordan 1 Bleached Coral has a look similar to most 1985 Air Jordans despite being a new colorway, providing a familiar yet refreshing feel.

Best Sneakers Releasing This Week

Yeezy Slides Bone, Onyx, and Green Glow

Yeezy restocks three of its most popular Slides colorways just ahead of Yeezy Day 2022.

While a full slate of Yeezy restocks is expected to happen next week, this week brings a sample platter. Arriving in Bone, Onyx, and Green Glow, these Yeezy Slides feature a monochromatic foam construction with a soft footbed for comfort. From there, a grooved outsole adds stability and responsiveness.

The Yeezy Slides Bone, Onyx, and Green Glow restock on Monday, July 25th for $70 on the adidas CONFIRMED app and in select stores.

Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant

Jordan Brand adds a twist to the iconic Black Cement colorway with the Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant.

Nodding to the original 1988 Air Jordan 3 Black Cement, the Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant arrives with a tumbled black leather upper with red Jumpman tongue embroideries and grey perforated leather collars, tongues, and eyestays. Mixing things up, brown textured leather overlays are in place of where traditional Elephant print overlays would normally be. At the heel, a Jumpman TPU tab completes the design.

The Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant releases on Saturday, July 30th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.

Nike SB Dunk MLB Pack

Nike SB looks to the baseball diamond for inspiration with two new iterations of the Nike SB Dunk.

Arriving in both SB Dunk High and Low models, the Nike SB MLB Pack utilizes palettes closely affiliated with two of baseball’s most well-known organizations, the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. The Nike SB Dunk High New York Mets (officially known as Rush Blue and Team Orange) features a Cloud Grey canvas upper with matching suede overlays, popping Rush Blue and Team Orange Swooshes, and woven tongue labels with graphics referencing the MTA’s 7 train to Queens and NYC’s moniker “The Big Apple”. The other colorway in the pack, the Nike SB Dunk Low Philadelphia Phillies (officially known as Valour Blue), boasts a Valor blue Durabuck and suede upper, Team Maroon Swooshes, and woven tongue labels with graphics depicting two Philly staples: the Liberty Bell and a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Both models are completed with a white and gum-brown Nike Zoom sole.

The Nike SB Dunk MLB Pack releases on Tuesday, July 26th for $115 and $125 on the SNKRS app and in select skate shops.

Puma MB.01 LaMelo Ball Be You

Puma champions LaMelo’s “1 of 1” mantra with the Puma MB.01 LaMelo Ball Be You.

In a similar fashion to Nike basketball shoes that carry the renowned “What The?” moniker, the Puma MB.01 LaMelo Ball Be You boasts a vibrant, asymmetrical look that borrows elements from colorways in the MB.01 collection. Galaxy-print areas of the upper nod to the MB.01 Galaxy, while hits of lime green and hot pink celebrate the popular MB.01 Rock & Morty. LaMelo’s signature “1 of 1” insignia on the tongue and insole adds the finishing touch.

The Puma MB.01 LaMelo Ball Be You releases on Friday, July 19th for $120 on the Puma website and in select retailers.

Gucci x adidas Gazelle

Gucci takes the adidas Gazelle to the runway with the Gucci x adidas Gazelle collection.

Releasing in men’s and women’s sizing, the Gucci x adidas Gazelle collection embraces Gucci’s historical monogram pattern, creative director Allessandro Michele’s use of floral-inspired palettes, and classic adidas Gazelle color blocking – each referenced amongst the eight different colorways. Stamping this collection as a true luxury collaboration, these Gazelles are all made in Italy with premium materials.

The Gucci x adidas Gazelle collection re-releases on Thursday, July 28th for $850 on the adidas website.

Air Jordan 8 Taxi Yellow (Women’s)

Jumpman delivers a bold new women’s-exclusive with the Air Jordan 8 Taxi Yellow (Women’s).

In classic color blocking, Air Jordan 8 Taxi Yellow (Women’s) is constructed with a smooth black leather upper with perforated underlays and hits of Taxi Yellow on the cross-strap, terry-cloth tongue emblem, and graffiti-style heel overlay. From there, a matching yellow and black foam sole completes the design.

The Air Jordan 8 Taxi Yellow (Women’s) releases on Friday, July 29th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select retailers.

Nike Air Max 95 Anatomy of Air and Off Noir Limestone

Nike pays homage to what inspired the Air Max 95’s ideation with the Nike Air Max 95 Anatomy of Air and Off Noir Limestone.

Designed by celebrated designer Sergio Lozano, it is documented that the Air Max 95 design was inspired by the human anatomy and sedimentary rock. Each of Anatomy of Air and Off Noir Limestone colorways highlight these points of reference in their palette and fabrication. The Nike Air Max 95 Anatomy of Air features color blocking reminiscent of muscular tissue, with leather layered overlays in shades of red atop a bone white mesh base. On the other hand, the upper of the AM95 Off Noir Limestone offers textural layers of tonal grey Durabuck, nodding to the after-effects of erosion on rock.
