Patta x New Balance 990v3 “Olive”

Look, we already know that the Patta x New Balance 990v3 “Olive” didn’t actually release in October, but it’s way too good to just skip. Made in collaboration with the Dutch label, Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt designed this sneaker with family in mind. Working on top of a breathable mesh base, “Olive” suede panels wrap around the entire New Balance shoe for an extremely luxurious fit and finish. And of course, you can’t talk about this sneaker without mentioning the neon green leather accents throughout. We seriously don’t know why Patta decided to do this, but we’re glad they did, because it makes this 990v3 infinitely more unique.

We’re telling you right now that the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Midnight Navy” is a future classic in the making. First leaked earlier this year, the hotly anticipated AJ 4 has officially arrived and it looks so much better in person. With a clean “White” leather upper, “Midnight Navy” accents feature throughout for a contrast that is sure to turn heads. On top of that, Jordan Brand has added subtle yet striking speckles to the “Cement Grey” elements. A must-have for every sneaker collection, secure your Air Jordan 4 right now while it’s still available.

AURALEE x New Balance XC-72 “Blue”

Ryota Iwai is certainly no stranger when it comes to New Balance collaborations, but the AURALEE x New Balance XC-72 “Blue” hits different. In the past, the Tokyo-based label has lent its minimalist sensibilities to a range of retro silhouettes, including the 550 and the 2002R, and for the first time ever, it’ll be taking on one of the Boston brand’s newer models. Designed by Charlotte Lee, this XC-72 is crafted from leather and suede throughout and painted in an all-blue hue that’s sure to turn heads. Of course, you can’t talk about these NBs without mentioning the unique midsole that’s inspired by racing cars.

Neckface x Nike SB Dunk Low “Black”

We don’t exactly know when the Neckface x Nike SB Dunk Low “Black” will drop, but we know for a fact that it will be sometime this month. Arriving just in time for the spooky sneaker season, this pair works on top of a “Black” suede base and is decorated with patches throughout designed by the California-based graffiti artist himself. Blurring the line between sneakers and art, you seriously don’t want to miss this SB Dunk collab, especially with Halloween coming up around the corner.

Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost & Found”

Of course, we can’t talk about the top sneakers of October 2022 without mentioning the legendary Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost & Found.” Rumors of this sneaker began all the way back in January, and at the time, nobody believed that it would actually drop. With that said, Nike has officially confirmed that the “Lost & Found” will be coming this month. A one-to-one remake of the original “Chicago” colorway that debuted back in 1985, this is one for all of the collectors out there. In fact, we think that this Air Jordan 1 may just be the hottest sneaker of the year.
