RELATED: The Best Sneaker Releases From July 2022

Air Jordan 14 Retro Ginger

Taking inspiration from Michael Jordan’s Ferrari F355, the Air Jordan 14 was presented in a low-top Ginger colourway in 1999 and remains one of the most distinctive and head-turning versions of the classic Nike sneaker. Now it’s been updated, with the Air Jordan 14 Light Ginger offering a mid-top form of the sneaker with a golden tan nubuck upper blended with a white leather forefoot overlay. With an Encapsulated Zoom Air cushioning elevating the Phylon midsole and angular teeth-like detailing, it’s a stunning, well-conceived gift to Air Jordan fans that should easily have even the most casual sneakerhead paying attention.

New Balance MADE in USA 990v2 Castlerock

So fresh and so damn clean, the New Balance 990v Castlerock is one of our favourites from Teddy Santis this year, dropping towards the end of August with a straightforward, incredibly warm aesthetic. There was a time when the 990 was considered the single best running shoe on the market, and Santis clearly brings a bit of that glory to his latest creation as part of his ongoing New Balance project. The stalwart Aime Leon Dore kingpin has contrasted this deep grey against an off-white finish that hits a comfortable ABZORB midsole cushioning, making this sneaker the perfect balance of form and function.

Air Jordan 36 Luka Doncic El Matador

The Air Jordan 36 line skews Spanish with the El Matador, paying homage to Dallas Mavericks’ baller Luka Doncic whose nickname has given the kicks their identity. As one of the more unique iterations of the Air Jordan 36 that we’ve seen in years, it’s definitely a sneaker for those who like to keep a wild card on their weekly roster, with gold lace tips and a fiery red outsole inspired by traditional bullfighting costumes.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 Turtle Dove

That distinctive cookies and cream upper makes its return after swiftly selling out when the Turtle Dove colourway was released in extremely limited qualities back in 2015. Now, one of the most popular 350 V1 colourways sees its grand return, with all the original design elements that made this stunner one of Ye’s most acclaimed releases. It was re-released at the top of August, so already you’ll have a hard time tracking down the sneaker. If you’re a fan of Yeezy Boost, it’s worth the effort to procure a pair of these daily drivers.

thisisneverthat x New Balance 1906R

The slight blemishes and creamy midsoles help give this brilliant New Balance collaboration a charming, aged aesthetic that brings something different to this underutilised silhouette. A collaboration with Korean streetwear brand thisisneverthat, this version of the 1906R was released towards the end of August and upon its announcement was an immediate hit for sneakerheads craving a hard left-turn from New Balance. There’s little not to love about this heavy, metallic colourway, employing smart little nuances to help build a world of detail.
