In our culture, collaborations are more prevalent than ever, and this year we've seen some strong releases from retailers, musicians, entertainers, and fashion brands alike. Indeed, the collaborative "X" has proven itself as a powerful marketing tool in the industry.
Memorable drops include the KAWS x Air Jordan IV, Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo, and VLONE x Nike Air Force 1 — all of which, of course, sold out in the blink of an eye. Still, the collaboration game doesn't begin and end there.
Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite drops to cop right now. Some seem obvious, while others are a bit further out there. All, however, make perfect sense on paper.
