I CAN NOT KEEP UP

Updated: May 23, 2019

What’s up with my Sneakerhead fam? How was everyone’s weekend? What did you cop? What did you take a L on? I haven’t really been copping kicks at my normal rate and I don’t think I’ll be able to again. These releases are starting to get out of hand, I can not keep up with all of them. I know we are far from the days where one to two shoes released over the weekend and there were only a few releases per month. But now, kicks are releasing throughout the week no longer just on weekends….and the releases per month are easily in the twenties. Wait what? Isn’t there only 30 days in the month? Exactly!! Soooo….unless you’re rich or the shoe plug (if so email me please) there’s no real way for the average sneaker connoisseur to keep up.

I’m going to attempt to acknowledge the releases that have taken place this month and even some of the releases scheduled for the rest of September 2018. Of course I can not get to EVERY release taking place. So I’ll stick to some of the more “hyped” releases coming out.

For those unfamiliar with the term hype, I’ll give a quick definition.

Hype – Pertains to a sneaker that receives a lot of attention before the actual release date. The sneaker has a lot of “hype” around it. Nothing extremely rare or classic in most cases, just a new shoe. But in some cases, there are some sneaker collaborations and designer shoes that receive the “hype” and those kicks are usually rare and exclusive.

Now that we have that out of the way let’s get to the…..oh yeah!! Release dates have been known to change, don’t quote me on upcoming releases. I’m not the shoe plug, but if you are…..I was serious about that email, let’s be friends!!

SEPTEMBER 1ST

Nigel Sylvester Air Jordan 1, this was one of the more hyped releases.

That is over 30 releases and we’re only half way through the month. How crazy is that? Lets not forget, I didn’t mention ALL of the releases that dropped just the more hyped ones.

We still have the back end of September with a whole lot more shoes dropping. Some of the more hyped ones are:

Nike EXP – 14, September 19, 2018

Acronym X Air Presto Mid Utility, September 20, 2018

WMNS Air Jordan 3, September 21, 2018

Air Jordan 1 High OG Retro (2 Different colorways), September 22, 2018

SB Dunk High “Humidity, September 22, 2018

WMNS Blazer Mid Rebel ( Multiple colors), September 22, 2018

Off white X Nike Blazer Mid, September 2018

Commes De Garcon X Nike Air For One, September 2018

Like I stated earlier, release dates change so do not quote me on this. Just know kicks will be consistently dropping so do a little research and keep an eye out. I mean, that’s what I do. This month is stacked full of releases from all of the brands. So there should be something that appeals to everybody. Now if you can actually secure them……that’s a completely different story.
