7 Sneakers Being Released In September That You Need To Own

Nike Huarache Adapt

Spring is here, and with all that fresh spring air—a bunch of fresh kicks to keep you light on your toes and your style on point as we cruise on into warmer weather.

This month, Skepta’s on the return with a powerful throwback to early 2000s athleisure style, Nike’s self-lacing tech gets a new lifestyle fit, there’s a new Supreme drop to cop (if you’re fast) and a very awesome Stan Smith pack you absolutely need to hit Tokyo for. Our list is a little Nike heavy this month—but when you dive in, it’s not hard to see why. The sneaker and sports icon continues to deliver on inspiring tech, cool collabs and really, really good design.

No word on when those Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack” kicks will drop (or, for that matter, what Look Mum I Can Fly on Netflix is actually about other than a whole lot of epic stage dives), but for now—feast your eyes on the freshest sneakers being released this month.

Nike Adapt Huarache

We won’t lie, we were pretty psyched when Nike dropped the self-lacing Adapt BB way back in January (side note, where has this year gone?). This month, they’ve gifted the iconic Back To The Future-inspired “FitAdapt” lacing tech to the Huarache—and this has to be our top pick of the drops this month. While the BB is a performance shoe, the Huarache is the first lifestyle sneaker with FitAdapt technology.

Nike X Skepta SK SHO TL “Bloody Chrome”

For his fourth Nike collab, UK-based rapper Skepta wanted to touch on his rich Nigerian heritage. The shoe is all about boundless opportunity—last year Skepta was awarded a chieftainship in his parents’ home state of Ogun in Nigeria for his positive contribution to the community. “It made me realize that anybody could be a chief, but some people are brought up not thinking they can,” he said in a statement.

Featuring a chrome Swoosh, all black mesh and bright red Nike Shox sole—we love this bold throwback to early 2000s athleisure style.

Nike X Sacai LD Waffle

What’s better than one pair of sneakers? Sacai designer Chitose Abe reckons it’s two sneakers melded into one, crazy new design. The LD Waffle is a special edition shoe that combines the Nike LDV and Waffle Racer sneakers, and features a double tongue, double Swooshes and double shoelaces. This drop features three colourways: pine green, black and "summit white".

Release date: September 13

John Elliott X Nike LeBron James Icon QS

Looks like LA-based designer John Elliott is carrying on his partnership with LeBron James and Nike with a few more colourways of his Icon sneaker set to drop this month. We are very (very) into the soft pink with translucent panels. A tan version is due to drop next month.

Fucking Awesome X Adidas Originals Stan Smith Pack

Ok, so you’re going to have to be in Paris or Tokyo for this one, but—worth it. For the unacquainted, Fucking Awesome is an American skate label created by pro skaters Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen. In a bold move, Fucking Awesome has dropped the iconic Three Stripe from the side and added die-cast metal “Fucking Awesome” logo badge in its place. They come in a sweet berry purple that can’t not remind you of Willy Wonka, and a tasty jack-o'-lantern orange.

Release date: September 12
Where to buy? At special locations in Harajuku in Tokyo and Le Marais in Paris. There'll also be a launch event at the FA store in LA on September 21. 

Supreme X Nike SB Dunk Lows

Ah, Supreme. That cherry-red label that’s so synonymous with hype the chase is almost more exciting than the actual product itself. In this case, however, these kicks are totally worth refreshing your browser for (not to mention the potential resale value). So get ready, because a set of Supreme-branded Nike SB Dunk Lows in three different colourways will be added to the brand's Fall/Winter collection. The drop will feature black and silver, navy and gold and (our favourite) bright white and Supreme’s signature red.

Air Jordan XXXIV

Bit over all the throwbacks? Ever the innovator, Nike’s ready to take you on a ride into the future with an Air Jordan that does not throw back to any other Air Jordan from the past. Made for basketball pros, the Air Jordan XXXIV puts performance first and is a sweet example of reductive design: they’ve cut out all the unnecessary stuff and left you with a shoe that will soar. It’s one of the lightest shoes ever created by the Jordan brand.
