From Yeezy Day’s controversial releases to much-awaited collaborations, August saw some of the most noteworthy sneakers of the summer. Nike kickstarted the month with a series of covetable sneakers alongside established partner Stüssy, whilst New Balance soared to new heights with its Made In USA line. In case you missed the headlines from the last month, we’ve rounded up the most in-demand shoes from August — make your move before the new season starts.

Nike Air Force 1 Low SNKRS Day 5th Anniversary

A pared-back sneaker designed to celebrate the 5th anniversary of SNKRS Day, the Nike Air Force 1 Low SNKRS Day 5th Anniversary offers a fresh take on the classic silhouette. Skilfully crafted with white leather overlays, woven panels and an earth-toned Swoosh lend a new level of luxury. Complete with a dubrae inscribed with a ‘V’ to mark the occasion, a textured tread underfoot nods to the shoe’s sporting heritage. 

Nike Air Max 1 x Patta White

Another addition to the ever-growing portfolio, the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 White is the next sneaker demanding a place in your collection. Instantly recognisable from the wave design sweeping across the side, the crisp white and grey colourway sets it apart from iterations of the past. Rounded off with Nike’s world-renowned Air cushioning in the sole, the Air Max 1 x Patta White is a comfortable sneaker with ample outfitting potential.

Nike Air Max 2013 x Stüssy Fossil

When Nike and Stüssy join forces, the results never disappoint. Case and point? The Nike Air Max 2013 x Stüssy Fossil. Adopting details from the legendary Air Max silhouette, this pair’s upper is engineered from breathable mesh, accompanied by a neutral colour scheme throughout. Nike’s flipped Swoosh falls to the rear in black, while a double helping of Stüssy’s logo appears on the tongue and eyestays. Easy to style and even easier to wear, make sure this sought-after sneaker appears in your autumn line-up.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Yellow Toe

Drawing heavily on the ’80s basketball silhouette, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Yellow Toe delivers all the comfort and stability the Jordan range is known for. Dubbed the ‘taxi’ thanks to its vibrant yellow and black colourway, tumbled leather overlays with perforations on the toe box provide optimised breathability. Grounded by a cushioned midsole for support all day long, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Yellow Toe is a seasonless sneaker that appeals to every occasion and wardrobe.

Nike Air Adjust Force x AMBUSH White Black

The Nike Air Adjust Force x AMBUSH White Black reunites the partner brands on the original ‘96 basketball shoe. Created with smooth leather all over, an interchangeable strap wraps around the midfoot and heel for a futuristic look that’s bound to turn heads. Championing fashion and function in equal measure, the sole is fitted with durable rubber pods, whilst the practical pull tab at the back makes this collaborative kick easy to slip on.
