Sneaker Press Release Updates August 27, 2022

With August closing, it’s starting to look a lot like fall. To commemorate falling temperatures and changing leaves, some of the sneaker space’s top players have started teasing shoes for the final quarter of the year, while others have been tied to collections geared up for summer 2023.

Twitter and Instagram went wild when news spread across social media that the Nike Air Foamposite One “Metallic Red” was set to return next year. The sneaker, which has been linked to Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway since 1997, has been relatively quiet for the past two years, but looks set to regain some of its mainstream popularity throughout 2023. Travis Scott or a could another high-level collaborator revitalize the silhouette? Only time will tell.

Other news from the NIKE, Inc. family include more than a dozen Air Jordan retros slated for release in April and June next year; a Nike Kobe 6 “Prelude” Protro; and a glimpse of another Nike LeBron 20. Away from any Swoosh and Jumpman logos, Joe Freshgoods took to Instagram to tease his New Balance Fall/Winter 2022 collection. The West Side of Chicago native has some tracksuits ready for the cold, but also appears to have prepared at least two pairs under the New Balance 990 series banner for its upcoming collaboration with the Boston-based brand. adidas Yeezy has also unofficially teased more styles, including what’s sure to be the last batch of Yeezy Slides for the year given the impending cold season.

For a preview of all this and more, check out our top headlines from August 27 through September 2 ahead.
