With just a week left in August, two things haven’t stopped – the relentless embrace of summer heat (particularly evident here in Southern California, where scorching sidewalks have become the norm), and the ceaseless cascade of remarkable sneaker releases that continue to captivate enthusiasts worldwide. As the sun-soaked days of this month wind down, it's evident that not even the sweltering temperatures can outshine the latest sneaker drops. From timeless classics to new collaborations, August has proven to be a playground for sneaker aficionados. So, lace up and get ready, because the August sneaker lineup is as blisteringly hot as it is undeniably impressive.
Bephie's Beauty Supply x Union LA x Air Jordan 1 High OG
Get ready for the highly anticipated collaboration between Union LA, Bephies Beauty Supply, and Jordan Brand on the Air Jordan 1. Dubbed "The Summer of '96," this footwear collection pays homage to the meeting of Union LA founder Chris Gibbs and Bephies Beauty Supply founder Beth Birkett, which sparked a lasting love. Along with The Air Jordan 1 High OG, they are also releasing a platform version of the shoe called the Air Jordan 1 High Elevate. Both shoes feature a nostalgic touch with intricate woven details on the upper. While this shoe would’ve been perfect to wear all summer, but we’re still glad to be able to wear it just the last month of the season!

Kith Classics X adidas Originals
Stepping onto the court of August sneaker releases, Kith Classics once again takes the stage in collaboration with adidas Originals, breathing new life into three tennis-forward silhouettes that have left an indelible mark on the sport—the Rod Laver, IL Comp, and Torsion Edberg.
Each of these iconic models is a nod to different chapters in the rich history of professional tennis. As the sun sets on the summer season, Kith for adidas Originals unveils an offering that masterfully weaves together the essence of bygone decades with a contemporary twist, all accented by a regal hue of royal blue and a special co-branding that speaks volumes.

Perfect for the upcoming fall season (but still great for the last couple weeks of summer) is the new Low Bred. The classic black and red combination takes on a fresh identity as it graces the canvas upper of the KO Low silhouette. Perfect to pair with jeans or shorts, this low cut pair is a great addition to most any outfit.More breathable than leather, the canvas upper makes this the perfect shoe as the weather transitions from hot to cool this time of year. We’re expecting to see lots of pics across the internet of these shoes kicking through fall leaves and making an appearance in plenty of OOTD posts.
