August is Now Fully Booked For The Most Hyped Sneaker Releases in 2018
The more sneaker releases are revealed, the more we find ourselves wishing we could fast forward time to cop the kicks we like the most. At first, it seemed like August is the month everyone was impatiently waiting for. This changed a little when the Yeezy Mafia announced that some delays were happening and that there will be no Yeezys dropping in August. However, the absence of Yeezys in August doesn’t by any chance mean we won’t be seeing hyped sneaker releases. In fact, August this year is a different story. We will have various sneaker releases differing in colors, brands, and silhouettes and we don’t know if we can afford copping them all.
Travis Scott Air Force 1 Sail
First on the list of August sneaker releases is the Travis Scott Air Force 1. It’s finally releasing after a long wait of confusing and conflicting date changes. Travis Scott, partner of Kylie Jenner and father to baby Stormi, recently released his Cactus Jack Air Jordan 4 which sold out. You can now find La Flame’s blue suede shoes for resale at a decent price on StockX. Finally, the release date of the AF1 Sail is now August 10 as per sneaker leaker @PinoE77.
Nike Off White Air Presto (White)
After the release of the black Off-White Nike Air Presto, the white one will drop 1 week later. On August 3rd, 2018 the white Air Prestos will release and boy oh boy this will be a great release. Out of all Off white Nike sneakers, it seems that the AJ 1s and Prestos are the ones that are most coveted and admired. This can be noticed through the super duper high resale value on the secondary market. Although we expect this value to decrease a little, chances are still high for this pair.
Last Year’s Off-White Nike Air Presto is still making over $1400 on StockX. So sooner or later, these sneakers will be worth a lot if you’re a sneakerhead. And if you’re not, well Virgil Abloh’s is always a must cop, and a must-flex.
Pharrell Williams NMD Afro Pack
The NMD Afro Pack is the latest among many collaborations between Pharrell Williams and Adidas. The series of packs started with India, then China, and now it celebrates African heritage. This release will offer 3 distinct pairs, with 3 completely different colors.
As opposed to the last China-exclusive release, the NMD Afro Pack will release globally, according to the Yeezy Mafia. Now, we’re probably looking at a retail price of $250 as usual. But as for the stock level, it isn’t quite settled yet. Logically we’d expect such sneaker releases to be very limited, regarding the nature and message behind them.
The latest updates regarding the NMD Afro Pack said that the 3 sneakers are dropping on August 18th, 2018. And since the last Chinese drop was location-exclusive, sneakerheads will be copping these to ease their pain.
Adidas X Dragon Ball Z
A major highlight of these sneaker releases in August is the Adidas X Dragon Ball Z collection. This long-awaited collab will drop its first two sneakers in August. This month will bring Goku and Frieza head to head in a battle of hype and resale value. Goku will be represented by the Adidas ZX 500 RM while Frieza’s kicks will be the white and purple Yung 1. It is also said that sneakers from the DBZ collection will come with matching collectible figurines. But we’ll have to wait to see about that.
This collaboration will also bring 6 more sneakers dropping in 2s in September, November, and December. So not only is August gonna be really busy, but you cannot blink this whole FW 18 season.
ULTRABOOST GAME OF THRONES – STARK
— YEEZY MAFIA (@theyeezymafia) July 2, 2018
Speaking of collaborations, the Yeezy Mafia revealed the most exciting of all collabs only a few days ago. Apparently, Adidas is planning on making use of the hype around the return of Game of Thrones in its 8th season to launch a befitting sneaker in 2019. How many sneakers we still don’t know. However, we do know this. The Adidas Ultra Boost Game of Thrones of House Stark is so lit we really can’t wait for it to drop.
No official release date is out yet for the sneakers or the final season of GOT for that matter, but we expect those 2 releases to happen around the same time. At least that’s what makes the most sense. Anyways, we still have August, and the whole FW 18 season to deal with before we have to worry about this GOT pair.
More Sneaker Releases
We know August might feel like it’s ages away, but it isn’t. Well, it won’t feel like this when you’re busy copping all the Yeezy and sneaker releases dropping before, and after for that matter. So stay tuned, and alert for the sake of your dream reselling business! You just can’t let any of these sneaker releases slip out of your hand or bot.
