5 new sneaker drops this week, including fresh YEEZYs and Nike SB Dunk Highs

If there’s anyone who’s making waves in the sneaker world today, it’s Travis Scott.

Shortly after rumours of a potential Air Trainer 1 release, it turns out that the rapper, sneakerhead, and designer may also be releasing a killer pair of  Air Jordan 1 OG Lows (pictured below) in the coming months. Until we get more news on that though, there are other new sneaker drops this week that are just as worthy of your attention.

Two new Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 OG Lows are reportedly releasing early next year.

Kanye and adidas, for one, will be having a busy week with not one, but two releases this week. The adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN, which has been teased at for months, will finally drop in a striking “Honey Flux” colourway. Fans of the Adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 V2s will also appreciate the “Mauve” release that may be happening this week.

Other sneakers we’re eyeing include Nike’s Gundam tribute, some very autumnal New Balances, and a Steve Aoki x Zegna collab.

Here are all the new sneakers dropping in the third week of September 2021, with all the details you need to know.

Adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 “Mauve”

When: 25 September 2021 (unconfirmed)

Shop: adidas Confirmed app

Price: US$240 (approx. S$ )

Still thinking about that “Geode” colourway from 2019 but don’t want to get fleeced on StockX? These new “Mauve” iterations are a good alternative, with a similar, muted shade of brown that’s accompanied by black suede overlays on the toe boxes, heels and mudguards. The BOOST midsoles come rendered in the same matching brown tone, instead of black like on the “Geode”. Reflective details are still plenty here though; you’ll find them on the lace, quarter panels and heels.

Adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN “Honey Flux”

When: 20 September 2021

Shop: adidas Confirmed app, Dover Street Market Singapore 

Price: S$349

After months of teasing, the 700 MNVN “Honey Flux” finally drops today. Like the rest of the colourways from this model, this one too is inspired by motorsports, with an upper that’s rendered a shocking shade of titular yellow and a reflective 3M “700” marking in silver. Black contrasting details on the tongue, laces, and sockliner add even more sportiness to the look, as do the sculpted black BOOST midsoles and matching outsoles.

‘Gundam’ x Nike SB Dunk High “Project Unicorn White”

When: 24 September 2021

Shop: Nike SNKRS

Price: S$179

It’s been 15 years since the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn series, and celebrations are in order. For fans of both sneakers and the anime, the party kicks of with these Dunks, inspired by its protagonist Banagher Links’ RX-0 Unicorn Gundam in Destroy Mode. Here, the premium white leather upper is outlined with bright red piping details, and can be switched up with interchangeable Swooshes, which resemble Unicorn Gundam’s horn. The white midsoles are also lined with red stitching, with black rubber outsoles to match the robot’s colourway. Besides Swoosh alternatives, you’ll also get a sheet of decals to play with — just as you would with the model kits.

New Balance 997H in “Spruce/Gold” and “Burgundy/Navy”

When: Available now

Shop: New Balance

Price: US$89.99 (approx. S$ )

New Balance’s sneaker revivals over the past year have put it back into the rat race and it’s not about to stop anytime soon. Another retro-inspired shoe that’s resurfaced is the 997H, a lightweight sneaker that’s known for its comfort, only this time colour-blocked for an even more old-school touch.

“Spruce/Gold” will see shades of green, blue, grey, and yellow meet a subtle gold “N” logo at the side, while “Burgundy/Navy” sports the two brooding shades and a yellow “N” logo. Whichever you choose, both releases are perfect for autumn.

Zegna x Steve Aoki Triple Stitch Sneaker

When: Available now

Shop: Zegna

Price: S$1,075

Not content with transforming Bulgari watches, Grammy-nominated DJ, producer, designer, and entrepreneur Steve Aoki, has joined Zegna’s global community of Modern Voices, this time, however, putting his mark on its Triple Stitch Sneaker.

Limited to 77 pairs worldwide, the sneakers are crafted from grey suede and a lightweight Aoki Blue rubber outsole. Zegna’s iconic triple crossing-elastic details are retained here — this time in blue and black — recalling the three hand-stitches on a suit lapel. Look closely at the back and you’ll see the shoe’s personalised number, Steve Aoki’s logo, and the brand’s XXX detail. Each shoe will also be one-of-a-kind because they’ll be personally fitted to each individual.
