The Top Sneaker Drops You Need to Know This Week
A look at this week’s most anticipated sneaker releases
Undefeated x Nike Zoom Kobe IV Protro Collection
Release date: August 24
Price: $180 each
LA-based streetwear boutique Undefeated is set to release the Mamba Mentality Volume IV collection this weekend. This pack honors Kobe Bryant's signature Nike silhouette and releases on August 24—the day that was declared by Los Angeles City Council as ‘Kobe Bryant Day.’ Bryant had two jersey numbers as a Laker: 8 and 24. These figures encapsulate some of his most memorable moments for many Lakers fans. Undefeated has set the stage yet again for one of the best looking Nike collaborations to hit the count.
The Kobe IV Protro comes in four colorways: Court Purple, Team Orange, Fir (a forest green) and Hyper Jade. Each version features an iridescent patent leather and carbon fiber accented upper. The branding on the tongue includes Bryant’s signature logo with Undefeated’s five strikes, a trademark Nike Swoosh on the side panel and a nod to Bryant’s legacy with both of his jersey numbers embossed on the heel. The Undefeated x Nike Kobe IV Protro will exclusively release in LA at Undefeated stores this weekend. For now, we can only hope for a wider release in the coming weeks.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 500 “Bone White”
Release date: August 24
Yeezy, Yeezy, how you do it, huh? It’s been an interesting few weeks for the Adidas Yeezy Boost series. Adidas and Yeezy Supply have been on a hot streak of restocks and releases of nearly every Yeezy Boost for the past 3 years. This week, we get a familiar but new iteration of the 500 series. The “Bone White” colorway may come from the same color palette as the “Blush” colorway, but it’s definitely the lightest shade in the color wheel of Yeezy Boost 500s to date.
Holding true to the promise designer Kanye West made—“Eventually, everyone who wants Yeezys will get Yeezys”—we have seen a flood of Yeezys and can surely expect more styles to come throughout the summer.
