Welcome to SNX DLX, our weekly roundup of the best sneakers on the market. Today is the official first day of the fall season, which unfortunately means sneaker drops are slowing down at a breakneck pace. To call this week a slow week is to put it lightly, unless you’re a Jordan or Yeezy fan. But that’s almost every week from 2021 until now, isn’t it? Try looking at the sparse production with a half-full glass perspective, now is a good time to give your wallet a break and convince your friends and family that you are not some sort of psychopath spending hundreds. dollars in shoes per week.
While this week is smaller, that doesn’t mean Nike or Adidas aren’t unleashing an absolute fire, arguably the biggest release this week is the return of the Air Jordan 5 Oreo, which we’ve named the one. of the best sneaker colors. a few weeks ago., and Adidas brings us new Yeezys and the latest Sean Wotherspoon collection. So let’s stop talking about it and just dive into the best sneaker drops of the week.
Unfortunately, its massive popularity means you won’t be able to find it at Nike. It fell this morning and has already disappeared from the SNKRS app. So you will have to go to your favorite aftermarket site to buy a pair.
The Air Max 95 is available now for a retail price of $ 180. Pick up a pair from aftermarket sites like StockX.
The Moonlight features a black suede upper with a contrasting White midsole and speckled shark tooth in black and white, which Nike claims is meant to evoke a star-filled night sky. Or you know, cookies and cream. It’s undoubtedly the drop we’re most excited about for all of 2021, so get ready for us to talk about it again on our list of the best end-of-year sneakers of 2021.
Sean Wotherspoon x Adidas Originals SUPERTURF Jiminy Cricket
Sean Wotherspoon is one of the wackiest and most exciting sneaker designers. He made corduroy a viable sneaker material and his Adidas Superstars looked like what would happen if Jackson Pollock got his hands on yarn, but we never imagined that for his next sneaker he would deliver a shoe to us with a Jiminy embroidered Grillon on the tongue. And yet we are there.
SUPERTURF is weird, to put it mildly. This is a brand new silhouette based on Adidas Response Hoverturf and features an upper made from 20% recycled polyester, a zippered tongue, beige, blue and green panels with an orange and black speckled mudguard. . It’s super textured like all of Wotherspoon’s sneakers and luckily it’s not a sneaker that sells us Disney, despite the inclusion of Jiminy Cricket.
Jiminy Cricket is just an emblem of Wotherspoon’s childhood memories on “Please Recycle” cans at Disneyland, which also featured conscious cricket. Wotherspoon and Adidas undoubtedly had to license Disney to use Jiminy, but at least there isn’t a noticeable Disney branding all over the place, which distracts attention from the design. This sneaker still feels very Wotherspoon.
It’s certainly odd, but we’ve now spent three paragraphs talking about it, so Wotherspoon clearly continues to be one of the most interesting designers in the sneaker business.
The Sean Wotherspoon x Disney x Adidas SUPERTURF Jiminy Cricket is set to release on September 25 alongside a collection of matching clothing at an unannounced price. Get a pair exclusively at Adidas online store.
Adidas YZY KNIT RNR Sulfur
Never in a million years, and please remember me, I would never buy or wear a pair of YZY KNT RNRs. These look like something your grandma would knit for you, but if I’ve learned anything in my time as a sneaker writer, it’s that you should never undo a Kanye West idea. As his new music gives more and more diminishing returns, he continues to pull all the cylinders when it comes to sneakers.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, thought the Yeezy Foam Runner looked silly before it was released, and now it’s one of the most popular silhouettes in the Yeezy line, and even the most popular sneakerheads. most respected on the scene swear by them.
So even though I would never be caught dead wearing this, you might like them! If you are planning to pick up this week’s KNIT RNR drop, you should know that Yeezy Supply is telling everyone to order 1/2 size above your normal size for the perfect fit.
The YZY Knit RNR Sulfur is set to release on September 23 for an unannounced price, but I mean how much could it cost? Get a pair exclusively at Yeezy Supply, the time for the outing is already running out!
Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Purple
You don’t dig on the KNIT RNR? We think, so for all of us grassroots people who refuse to embrace the future, Yeezy also offers a more standard sneaker – a new colorway of the 700 v2 silhouette dubbed “Mauve”. It features a premium knit upper with suede panels and reflective detailing on a matching chunky midsole.
A normal week we’d be excited about this fall-toned Yeezy, but going out alongside the Knit RNR, it feels a bit uneventful.
The Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Mauve is slated for release on September 25 for a retail price of $ 240. Get a pair exclusively at Yeezy Supply.
