Yeezy Slides

Following Yeezy Day 2022, Yeezy Slides have skyrocketed in demand, with both Onyx and Bone colorways claiming the top two positions as the most traded products on StockX. At a price point below $160, both of these colorways are not only the most popular colorways in Yeezy’s catalog, but also some of the most affordable options.

New Balance 530 White Silver Navy

Last week, the New Balance 530 White Silver Navy became the second most-traded New Balance sneaker in the past year. Unlike other popular models like the 550, 2002R, and 990, the New Balance 530 has not been the center of many collaborations, showing that the design truly speaks for itself.

Best Sneakers Releasing This Week

Air Jordan 7 Citrus

Debuted in 2006, the Air Jordan 7 Citrus makes its return for the very first time.

The 2022 reissue of the Air Jordan 7 Citrus arrives in an identical composition to the original, featuring a black Durabuck upper with Citrus contrast stitch detailing and Jumpman collar embroideries. Hits of Varsity Red on the Air Jordan tongue embroidery, sock liner, and woven heel tag emphasize the colorway’s warm palette. From there, a matching sole with geometric patterns cut into the outsole completes the design.

The Air Jordan 7 Citrus releases on Saturday, August 13th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.

Union LA x Nike Cortez Light Smoke and Lemon Frost

If you missed out on their Union LA exclusive release, you will have another chance to grab the Nike Cortez Union LA in the latest Light Smoke and Lemon Frost iterations.

Both of the Union LA Nike Cortez’s boast a striped, woven construction that draws inspiration from Mexican sarape blankets and the Chicano influence on Southern Los Angeles. Suede overlays and Swooshes amplify the woven material, making it the focus while providing structure. At the base, a speckled sole containing recycled Nike Grind materials offers cushioning and support.

The Nike Cortez Union LA Smoke Grey and Lemon Frost release on Wednesday, August 10th for $130 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.

Stüssy x Nike Air Max 2013 Fossil

Following a Stüssy-exclusive release, the Nike Air Max 2013 Stüssy Fossil is officially receiving a global release.

Drawing inspiration from past Air Force 1 and Spiridon collaborations, the Nike Air Max 2013 Stüssy Fossil boasts a netted mesh upper with woven overlays, frayed textile side Swooshes, and Stüssy branding at the forefoot. Twine-styled rope laces offer an alternative look to the running model, which typically comes equipped with flat laces. Aged-looking, clouded Air units within a yellowed sole add a vintage feel to the model.

The Nike Air Max 2013 Stüssy Fossil releases on Friday, August 12th for $210 on the SNKRS app and in select Nike retailers.

Nike Air Max Penny 1 Orlando

For the first time since 2011, Nike is bringing back the iconic Nike Air Max Penny 1 in its original colorway.

The Nike Air Max Penny 1 Orlando was first released in 1995 as then NBA All-Star and Orlando Magic shooting guard Penny Hardaway’s debut signature model. It was originally designed for big guards who play with speed and power, but later on, it seamlessly transitioned into a street classic. This 2022 reissue is nearly identical to the original, so if you loved it then, these are for you. 

The Nike Air Max Penny 1 Orlando releases on Thursday, August 11th for $170 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.

Nike Air Force 1 Low Little Accra

Nike celebrates New York City’s Ghanian community with the Nike Air Force 1 Low Little Accra.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low Little Accra features a pale yellow leather upper with red satin overlays, gold premium embroidered detailing, and orange Swooshes. On the heel tabs, “Little Accra” is embroidered, paying homage to the area in the Bronx near 167th Street that is home to a large Ghanaian community. From there, decorative insoles nod to Nike’s mission to build communities and share stories.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low Little Accra releases on Friday, August 12th for $140 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.
