New month, new sneaker releases from big brands like Nike, Adidas, and Jordan.
This month, there are almost too many new droops to count, so we've done our best to narrow the list down to just a few of the best drops coming in October 2019.
Check out some of the most noteworthy sneaker releases coming this month and how you can swap out the laces to make them your own.
Dropping at the beginning of the month is the new Nike Air Force 1 Low "What The LA."
This new iteration of the iconic AF1 features some wild color blocking and two mismatched shoes. The shoes are constructed with mesh, leather, and suede, and feature LA branding with baseball and basketball-influenced detailing.
Look for these on October 1 for a retail price of $130.
It seems like Adidas drops new NMDs every other week. This month, we're getting an additional four colorways of the popular running shoe.
The new NMD R1 will be available in Core Black and Vapour Pink, Cloud White and Solar Red, Orchid Tint and Chalk Purple, and Ash Silver and Shock Pink.
You can find these at select retailers on October 1 for $130.
Jordan Brand is preparing to drop the all-new Jordan 9 "Gym Red."
This new colorway features a white leather upper, red leather overlays, black detailing, and a white rubber outsole. You can try swapping out the stock laces for a pair of red and white rope laces to match the colorway.
The Jordan 9 "Gym Red" is set to drop on October 5 for a retail price of $190.

Tyler, The Creator is coming back with yet another Converse collaboration. This time, he's taking inspiration from his 2015 album, "Cherry Bomb."
The Golf Le Fleur x Converse Chuck 70 features bold flames and a light blue colorway atop the classic Chuck 70 silhouette.
Look for these to drop at select retailers on October 12 for $100.
Lastly, we have a new iteration of the legendary Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard."
The Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard 3.0" features the same black and orange color scheme we all know and love alongside a pale vanilla outsole.
Sneakerheads have had some mixed opinions about this new release as it features a crinkled leather upper to mimic shattered glass.
Look for these in stores on October 26 for $160, and try swapping out the stock laces for a pair of black luxury leather laces.
