Fourteen Can’t Miss Sneaker News Headlines From October 16th To October 22nd

Fourteen Can’t Miss Sneaker News Headlines From October 16th To October 22nd


Dozens of sneaker designs have lasted the test of time from some of the biggest brands of the last 70 years. Yet, some of the most iconic models have made it to the current year by consistently showcasing an ability to adapt, not reacting on their laurels.

As it heads into 2022, the Nike Air Force 1 emerged in handfuls of reimagined arrangements courtesy of designers the likes of Matthew M. Williams. Furthermore, playful takes inspired by UNO introduced new color-blocking to the basketball-informed silhouette. Similarly, the Air Jordan 1 Low, which debuted in 1986, appeared in one of its boldest styles yet. Platform soles and cork sock-liners detour Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker from any hardwood court, prepping it for runways across the globe. The low-top’s younger kin, the Air Jordan 4, also joined the select roster of basketball-sneaker-turned-golf-cleat, as its “Black/University Red” (“Bred”) colorway appeared with spikes made for the green.


Despite dedication to the future, top players in the sneaker space would be remiss to not revisit their archives from time to time. FILA recently did so, creating a special edition of the Grant Hill 1 covered in Sprite’s colors. Rumors also emerged that the Nike Air Max Penny 1 would begin a retro run in 2022 with original Orlando Magic-friendly styles. Expected by no one, Stephen Curry’s first signature sneaker with Under Armour was unveiled as retroing for the first time ever come November.

Away from walks down memory lane, new propositions the likes of the Nike Air Max Dawn and ever-polarizing YEEZY FOAM RUNNER surfaced for the first time and in new styles, respectively. The Nike Kyrie 8 also emerged in official images for the first time, suggesting all parties involved are moving forward with the design.

For a look at all that and more, check out our top headlines from October 16th to October 22nd ahead.
