This is one of the quieter weekends in the sneaker world, but there’s a lot to take notice of. The most remarkable is actually the first release of the week: Tom Sachs is with Nike again, offering a revamped version of his beloved “Mars Yard” sneaker, giving hardcore fans a second shot at that highly coveted shoe. Adidas is back with Parley for the Oceans on a trio of Ultra Boosts that make beautiful work out of the sad topic of coral bleaching.
No fewer than four Asics retro runners show up this week in unique but very wearable colors, while Nike and Jordan Brand take classics (both historical and modern) and remix them with solid results. There’s something for just about anyone this week whether you’re a hardcore sneakerhead or a casual buyer. Even if you’re not going to buy, it’s worth checking out what’s happening in the industry.
