But be prepared for things to pick up in the next couple of weeks leading up to Halloween, as just about every brand is gearing up to ditch their special outings for the holidays. This season tends to offer a lot of sneakers in black, orange, and purple colourways, and while things can get pretty whimsical pretty quickly, it’s not that bad, just take a look at this week’s latest Jordan 5 for some. have proof!
This week, Nike is back in its dominance, grabbing the lion’s share of the spots while Adidas struggles to keep up. Nothing new to note from brands like New Balance, but we expect a big drop soon from Salehe Bembury, who is expected to unveil his latest New Balance collaboration this month.

Let’s dive in!
Nike Dunk High 1985 Black Acid Wash
Typically, the rising Dunk doesn’t come close to reaching the popularity of Nike’s low-cut Nike SB Dunk, but the 1985 iteration of the silhouette comes very close and makes the case for the existence of the high-top shoe of this silhouette in the first place.
This week’s silhouette gets a cow print colourway called Black Acid Wash and features acid wash panels, a distressed midsole, yellow leather underlay, and a gray outsole with a black wrap-around swoosh from Bad. mood.
The Nike Dunk High 1985 Black Acid Wash is available now for $ 130. The shoes are sold out at Nike, so pick up a pair at your favorite aftermarket site.
Nike AJKO Storm Blue
Looking for a casual Jordan? AJKO is your jam. Featuring a mixed leather and canvas upper, this AJKO is lighter than your average Jordan 1 by replacing the leather with a canvas base and is said to provide a more comfortable fit. As great as the Jordan 1 silhouette is, it is old and as such does not provide the best support for the foot. The AJKO is trying to remedy some of these problems.
It’s not as iconic as the original, but sometimes comfort reigns supreme.
The Nike AJKO Storm Blue is available now for a retail price of $ 140. The shoes are sold out at Nike, so pick up a pair at your favorite aftermarket site.
AJKO 1 Billie Eilish features a slime green rod (it’s actually Lime Green, but come on, “Slime” is so much more Billie) made with 20% recycled material by weight. Few (if any) artists getting into the sneaker business are going down the sustainability path, so it’s cool to see Billie set off what we hope is a trend.
The Nike AJKO 1 Billie Eilish is slated for release on September 30 for a retail price of $ 170. Pick up a pair through the Nike SNKRS app.

In the late 90s and early 2000s, Apple discontinued a line of iMac computers housed in transparent plastic cases. Back in the day, they looked incredibly futuristic, until they ended up getting cheesy over the decade. But as is fashion and culture, give it 20 years old and people are ready to fall in love with it again, and if you are currently nostalgic for the early 2000s or dress like you are. , nothing captures the magic of these early iMacs quite like Moschino’s creative director Jeremy Scott’s Dip collection for Adidas.
