October Sneaker Release Calendar
Entering the month of Halloween!
Oct 1 — Off White x Nike Air Rubber Dunk (University Gold / University Blue / GreenStrike)
Kicking off October with an Off-White pair, we're seeing the next Off-White x Nike silhouette to release. Part of 3 upcoming colourways, the Air Rubber Dunk, is inspired by a vintage Nike P-6000 and the classic dunk. This time round, Nike is taking a somewhat 'Kanye' approach by making this release, a regional one. The University Gold will launch in the Asia Pacific, the University blue will released in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The GreenStrike colourway will be made available only in America. Good luck to those looking to cop all 3! This model is sure to catch the attention of onlookers!
Oct 3 — Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Asriel (aka Carbon)
Introduced initially as the Asriel, this colourway is now known as the Carbon colourway. As one of the more popular colourways this year, the upper of the sneaker is made from woven black, grey, and blue prime knit. The best part of this sneaker has to be the contrast between the upper and the translucent cream coloured midsole. Definitely a solid colourway, this pair will be easy to match with most of your outfits!
Oct 10 — Air Jordan 4 PSG
The Air Jordan 4 PSG is the Jumpman's latest collaboration with the football club, Paris Saint Germain. The shoe is dressed in a nice combination of white, black, and Bordeaux wine red (no coincidence here as PSG is a French football club after all) with the club's circular crest replacing the Jumpman logo at the heel. This sneaker is set to release in adult and junior sizes!
Oct 10 — Air Jordan 3 Retro Varsity Royal
Also known as the "Blue Cement," this AJ3 Retro is dressed in the varsity royal blue and cement grey colour scheme. The shoe features a tumbled blue leather upper along with grey elephant print overlays.
Oct 11 — Air Jordan 1 Lucky green WMNS
Inspired by Michael Jordan's 63 point game against Boston, this shoe is covered in bright green Celtics colourway and comes in tumbled leather. This shoe is a women's exclusive release, so, unfortunately, men with bigger feet will struggle against this release.
Oct 15 — Adidas x Toy Story
This upcoming collection between Adidas and Toy Story features SIX sneakers, each pair representing a distinct character from the popular animated film. The character theme sneakers include; Buzz Lightyear, Woody, The Alien, Jessie, T-Rex, and Hamm. We'll leave it to you to figure out which shoe represents which character!
Oct 16 — Union x Air Jordan 4 Off Noir
Following its initial release, we're set for another wider release of the Union x AJ 4 Off Noir. In case you didn't know, the tongue comes in its stitched form. If you want that OG look, remove the stitch and rock them! Nothing else needs to be said about these bad boys. Grab these if you can!
Oct 16 — Union x Jordan Delta Mid
With similar colourways to its AJ4 Off Noir counterpart as highlighted by the Off Noir, Brigade blue, Dark Smoke, and Fusion red colourway the Delta Mid isn't going to be as popular as the AJ4, but nevertheless is one for the archives.
Oct 16 — Union x Jordan Zoom 92 Guava Ice
The Union x Jordan Zoom 92 takes design inspired by a hybrid of three unique models that Michael Jordan wore back in 1992: the Air Jordan 7, Air Max 180, and Air Force 5. The distorted layering of the AJ7 is found in the split across the upper, creating layered transparency that provides detail and perceptual depth. The number "9" badge inspired by the AJ7 appears on the heel, while visible Air technology and material elements inspired by the Air Max 180 and AF5 can be seen on the forefoot and around the eye stays. A truly unique silhouette with a sick colourway, we need this in hand!
Oct 23 — Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R
The NB 2002R x Salehe Bembury isn't your ordinary collaboration. With decades of experience, including spending time at Cole Haan and the Yeezy brand, Salehe Bembury is the current VP of men's footwear at Versace (since 2017). The sneaker is inspired by the Antelope Canyons of Arizona, highlighted by the burnt orange tones and contrasted by the baby blue N logo representing the clouds beyond the Canyons. Safe to say, this collaboration is the first of its kind and is going to be huge.
Oct 28 — Nike Airforce 1 Orange Skeleton
In times like these, it's unlikely that we will go out for trick-or-treating when Halloween arrives. Despite that, Nike is still keeping up with their annual (and 3rd year in a row) tradition of releasing their Halloween themed "Skeleton" Airforce 1 Lows. For this year's festival, it looks like we'll be seeing an orange colourway of the Airforce 1, a nice fresh change compared to their previous white and black colourways.
Oct 28 — Air Jordan 35 x Fragment
Following the insane release of Air Jordan 3 x Fragment in September, we're set for Fragment designer, Hiroshi Fujiwara's next sneaker, and newest silhouette; the AJ 35 x Fragment is set to release on Oct 28. This sneaker comes in Fragment's signature white, blue, black colour blocking along with the famous double lighting bolt on the heel tab.
Oct 31 — Air Jordan 1 High OG Dark Mocha
The first release from the Jordan Retro Holiday season collection, the AJ1 High OG Dark Mocha. If you're STILL contemplating whether to get the ridiculously priced Travis Scott AJ1 Highs that released last year, we'd recommend going with this pair as the more wallet-friendly alternative. Swap the black laces for some pink ones, and you'd be good to go!
