Another month, another round of fresh new kicks to add to your wishlist. Right now, we're bracing for the newest Aimé Leon Dore P550s—a creamy, minimalist update of creative director Teddy Santis' previous New Balance styles. 

The bold Nike Dunk Argon is a shock of blue in a sea of Bottega green, the New Balance 990v3 gets an icy blue treatment too, and mules have entered our list at last. 

Ready? Here are six of the best new sneakers dropping in Australia soon.

Editor's Pick: Sneakersnstuff x New Balance 2002r Mule

Release Date: Friday 7 October, 10am
Shop: New Balance

We really are living in the comfy Crocs era. Laces? Who needs 'em. Proving the point is New Balance's 2002r Mule, a slip-on "half" sneaker of sorts—and yet another super-hyped style in the New Balance universe. This eucalyptus green colourway comes via Sneakersnstuff and drops in Australia on Friday 7 October. Shop here

Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance P550

Release Date: TBC
Shop: New Balance 

Who is Aimé Leon Dore? It's the name of New Balance creative director Teddy Santis' own label—so it makes sense that the two brands meet somewhere in the sneakerverse from time to time. This week Santis revealed this creamy, minimalist follow-up to his previous takes on the 550, complete with subtle hints of silvery blue, and it is perfection. No release date has been set—so stay tuned or check here

Nike Air Jordan 5 Retro Low "Expression"

Release Date: Wednesday 14 September

It might look like a Jackson Pollock canvas, but the inspo for these Jordans is actually basketball communities around the world and "the rugged pavement of courts well played". Either way, the cookies and cream colour is a vibe. Shop here

Nike Dunk Low Argon

Release Date: Sunday 23 September, 8pm
Shop: Nike

Green has been having a moment in fashion for such a long time—let the blues begin with this Dunk drop from Nike. Featuring cool sky blue and bright ultramarine, the Argon was once a Japan-only release but it'll be up for grabs this month in men's, women's, and kid's sizes. Shop here

New Balance MADE in USA 990v3

Release Date: Monday 5 September

The iconic 80s-style 990v3 running shoe has been treated to cherry red and chocolatey brown colourways this year, but this ice blue and navy version is our favourite yet. Shop here

Nike x Matthew M. Williams 005 Slide

Release Date: Friday 23 September
Shop: Nike

Another entry from the sneaker meets mule meet slide world is this slick black drop from Nike and 1017 ALYX 9SM founder and creative director Matthew M. Williams (MMW). They're airy, enormously comfortable, and will be stable in your summer wardrobe for sure. Shop here
