The Top Sneaker Drops You Need to Know This Week
A look at this week’s most anticipated sneaker releases
Fear of God x Nike Air Skylon II “Light Bone”
Release date: July 18 (European Release)
Jerry Lorenzo is adding to his Nike collection, finally releasing the Nike Air Skylon II in the “Light Bone” colorway. This silhouette shares similar tones to the Fear of God 1 “Sail,” which Lorenzo noted as “the best version of our original idea...the tonal summertime sail,” Lorenzo posted on his Instagram.
Traditionally a Nike Air classic running shoe, this Fear of God iteration adds a luxury streetwear twist by updating the silhouette with a mesh and suede upper and a toggled lacing system replaces the traditional ones. With a rumored US release date around the corner, many footwear boutiques will be shipping these stateside.
Undercover x Nike Daybreak “Citron”
Release date: July 19
The Japanese designer behind Undercover, Jun Takahashi, has been working with Nike for decades. This summer's collection is focused on the running silhouette and is an extension of his “Chaos Balance” series. “With Nike, we are able to explore technical materials and fabrications that allow for new investigations of Undercover's design principles,” Takahashi said in an interview with Nike.
Undercover transforms this iconic ’80s sneaker with a future-forward, or dynamic futuristic, aesthetic. The silhouette features a speckled midsole and extended heel clip with a mix of nylon and suede fabrications on the upper. The “Citron” colorway has been one of the most popular of this collaboration and is surely going to be the most sought after. Don’t sleep on this drop.

Release date: July 20
Price: $160 each
Pharrell Williams continues his successfully creative and uplifting collaboration with Adidas with the release of the new Adidas Original SolarHu sneaker.

Releasing in white, cream white, grey and core black, the “Inner Light” represents the collaboration’s foundational messages of love, hope, inclusivity and equality.
