It's an exciting time right now for drops you guys. We're about to enter the NBA Conference Finals soon, which means the possibility for more NBA releases (we've already got one that we're covering today), and Memorial Day Weekend is coming up next week, so we'll probably have some Memorial Day-themed inclusions that we'll either be adding into this week's roundup or next. Plus, we've got Fast X dropping this weekend, and we're beginning to see more collaborations between brands and film studios for major movie releases, so stay tuned for any announcements in that regard. 2023 also marks the 30th anniversary of BAPE and 20th anniversary of its partnership with adidas, so we have a pretty fun release this week: the adidas Originals x BAPE Forum 84 Lo.
