Sneaker News Best releases 2021 23 to 29 August
After a few calm days and a few outings, the energy is finally starting to pick up. And come this week, a long-awaited retro – and many other stars in the industry – will hit the intangible shelves.
First, adidas kicks off alongside Jeremy Scott, plastering the Wings Forum with plenty of amended bills. Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, the Nike Dunk drops in a gray / pink mix and Kerwin Frost teams up with the Three Stripes for the crazy Superstar “Superstuffed”. Come Friday, the drops continue to accumulate. The Swoosh brings out the navy-colored Fragment x sacai x LDWaffle, the “What The” Air Presto, and even the laser-etched Air Max 90. Pharrell, then, ends the morning with his last signing: the Humanrace Sichona.
Saturday, after years of waiting, offers the very first Retro of the Air Jordan 4 “Lightning”, a release that new and old heads are sure to covet. The 1985 Dunk High appears in another “Acid Wash” scheme and adidas Yeezy comes out of hiding with the Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Light”. Sunday ends us with a single pair: the Air Jordan 6 “Dongdan”, which should be released exclusively in China.
For a link to all of this, be sure to keep scrolling.
