Featuring a classic black and yellow color combo, this Air Jordan 1 "Pollen" not only nods to allergy season but to an iconic Dunk High collab with Wu-Tang Clan from 1999. During the rollout of his McDonald's meal, Travis Scott popped up wearing one of the 36 ever produced. They were originally shared with family and friends connected to the iconic Staten Island rap group.
While the "Pollen" incorporates similar colors as the Wu-Tang dunk, the latest silhouette is a Jordan Brand favorite: the retro Air Jordan 1. Having dropped in August for $170 retail via Nike's SNKRS app, these shoes are now reselling on StockX and other sites for around $200.

After dropping the high-top version at the end of July on his Cactus Jack website in a first-come, first-served manner, Travis Scott and the Japan-based shop fragment design gave sneaker collectors a better chance to secure their coveted Air Jordan 1 Low style with a raffle on SNKRS in August.
Even though they're Lows, which usually aren't as popular as Jordan 1 Highs, only a handful of SNKRS bidders were able to get their hands on a pair, turning the moment into a trending topic on Twitter. They're reselling for $1,200 on sites like StockX; the Highs are selling for more than double that price.

The low-key yet influential Montreal imprint JJJJound is linking with Vans for the second time since 2017 to deliver 3 suede colorways of the Sk8-Mid in black, brown and olive green. Previously, JJJJound ventured beyond sneakers into a more business casual realm with Dr. Martens.
(The Archie II "Dark Brown Crazy Horse" and "Black Wyoming" shoes were meant for both modern and traditional creatives.) Reflecting JJJJound's versatile and minimal style, the new Vans kicks quickly sold out. However, they're listed on StockX and other sites for the relatively fair cost of $100-130.

Fashion tastemaker and Adidas partner Kerwin Frost is translating his larger-than-life personality into an oversized Adidas Superstar "Superstuffed," reselling for around $350 on StockX and other markets. His debut Adidas collab is stuffed with so much padding, it looks five sizes bigger than its actual fit.
"Yes, this is for the weirdo, but I also want everyday people to just be able to put it on and feel a little sneaky when they’re jumping into it," Frost told Complex in an interview. "Because it’s not super loud in colors and stuff, but it is really crazy and out of the box." Gigi Hadid and John Mayer are two notable trendsetters who showed love to the "Superstuffed."

Concepts x NB 57/40 "Headin' Home" – For a style that's more normal-sized, peep the 57/40 "Headin' Home" from Boston-based boutique Concepts and New Balance. The shoe not only pays homage to Babe Ruth's 1920 film of the same name but the rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees. (Ruth won three championships with the Sox and four with the Yanks from 1915-1932.)
"While athlete-driven film features are common today, this was pioneering for its time: The Yankees' first attempt at selling its stars through popular entertainment," Concepts wrote on its blog. They added, "The color palette for the shoe draws from original 'Headin' Home' posters." On resale markets like StockX, they've been moving for close to $200.

After joining forces for a couple of Boston Clogs outfitted in corduroy last year, Stüssy and Birkenstock are expanding their collection to include 3 fresh colorways – "Bone," "Caramel" and "Dusty Pink" – in traditional suede. The main highlight is Stüssy's logo, which lies parallel to the buckle. Birkenstock describes the sandal as a "perfect seasonless shoe."
Birkenstock also collaborated with streetwear brand Kith earlier this year on a couple of fuzzy Boston Shearling looks in "Antler" and "Grey," as well as two Arizona Shearling pairs in "Navy" and "Green." The latest releases are reselling for between $230-$300, with "Dusty Pink" being the most sought after.

Pharrell and Adidas are continuing to make sneaker history together, recently introducing a brand new silhouette dubbed the Humanrace Sičhona in "Team Royal Blue." Sičhona is an indigenous phrase that means "connecting to the earth." Members from the Dakota tribe were featured in the promotional campaign, and they liken the phrase to being "barefoot.”
Indeed, Pharrell revealed in an interview, "I chased the experience I remember feeling as a kid when I walked barefoot on grass, sand and rocks. Feeling the texture, the temperature, the moisture … that primal sense of freedom was a north star objective with this project." They dropped via Adidas' Confirmed app in late August, now going for around $230.

MJ has been dominating the court for as long as we can remember. But forget his stats for a second. The NBA legend's sneaker choices have also changed the world of ball forever.

The kicks' sleek design is intended to be indestructible or "NDSTRKT," as marketed.
The NDSTRKT Air Max 95 Neon gives an unprecedented spin on the classic Nike runner.
