Release Date: Out Now

Editor's Notes: Though the Air Max DN is only a few months old, it's already getting the retro colorway treatment usually reserved for Nike's most prized silhouettes.

This special edition harkens back to a color palette from 1998, swapping yellow accents for bright gold hues on the air bubbles in the heel.

Opium x NikeJordan Air Ship
Buy at Nike

Release Date: July 7

Editor's Notes: Opium Paris has been a cultural meeting point for the last 23 years, so it's only right the retailer links up with Nike for a special release.

This new women's iteration of the Air Ship is loaded with details, ranging from two-tone embroidery and suede overlays to debossed logos and retro patterns at the heel.

PUMA x  La Francé Amour

LaFrancé x PumaLaFrancé Untouchable
Buy at BSTN Store

Release Date: July 5

Editor's Notes: Basketball players having clothing brands isn't anything new, but LaMelo Ball isn't your average NBA player.

The latest drop from his La Francé imprint powered by PUMA follows the same oversized lineage as Osiris and Lanvin but features unique mesh paneling along the upper.
