Keeping an eye on the coolest shoe releases is only part of the gig when you work at Boss Hunting. From the cleanest kicks on the block to the fastest runners on the start line and everything in between – we’ve got you covered. So if you want to keep the best of what’s out there, here are the bras team’s most popular shoe releases from the past month.

James Bond 007 x adidas Ultra Boost 2020 Low

After nearly two years of delay, No Time To Die finally opened in London last week and received positive reviews. The 007 film franchise is known for its enthusiastic dealings with employees, and the latest association is with adidas, which is bringing out a quartet of Ultra Boost 2020 low colorways. All four colourways are characterized by a similarly monochromatic palate, predominantly black and white, which emphasize gray tones. The Bond-themed branding is subtle and features 007 on the heel, a Specter or James Bond logo on the tongue, and scenes from the movie on the insole.

TIED TOGETHER: BH Approved: The best sneaker releases from August 2021

HOKA ONE ONE BONDI X

While HOKA can be seen on the feet of professional runners as well as some of its competitors, the brand has tacitly built a legion of fun running fans around the world. Their latest shoe, which was developed in collaboration with Engineered Garments, is designed for speed and has a propelling carbon fiber plate in a foam midsole. Not only is this the lightest midsole HOKA has ever put on the market, but you’ll also look great while running fast, with splashes of yellow, orange and blue on the white running shoe.

COMME des GARÇONS HOMME x New Balance 57/40

COMME des GARÇONS HOMME x New Balance 5740

COMME des GARÇONS HOMME has built a long and fruitful relationship with New Balance over the years and only released two shoe collaborations in the last few months. Their latest collaboration targets the 57/40 silhouette, which has received a murdered black finish, as well as a layer of GORE-TEX. Not only do they look like you can take them with you wherever you go, but thanks to the GORE-TEX treatment, they’re really able to handle it.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Pro “Prototype”

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Pro 22 Prototype 22

While a decent part of the sneaker business has the future firmly in view, there are still designs that draw inspiration, like the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Pro “Prototype”. The instantly recognizable silhouette remains relatively unchanged, while the grayscale elements serve as a neutral canvas for the blue and orange highlights of the shoe. Discreet perforations on the collar show versatility, with the option of keeping the sneakers as high-tops or converting them to low-tops in warmer weather.

adidas Originals Stan Smith Golf

There’s a ton of golf equipment out there that takes itself pretty seriously, so it’s always nice to see something that’s a bit of fun. That’s exactly what you get with these adidas Originals Stan Smith golf shoes, featuring the iconic silhouette in full white, just like the good man intended. A dotted cow print surrounds the midsole and hints at the cattle inspiration behind the design, which is reflected in the pink toe-less rubber outsole.

Levi’s x New Balance 990v3

Levis x New Balance 990v3

Another New Balance collaborator from the fashion world, Levi’s shares a lot with New Balance as an iconic American brand loved around the world. The two brands have teamed up to bring out a denim-focused pair of sneaker colorways, using the 990v3 as a canvas silhouette. The base material is available either in a neutral tinted gray or a somewhat louder indigo shade. The base material is denim with fluffy suede highlights that surround the two brand logos on the flanks of the shoe.

sacai x Clot x Nike LDWaffle

CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle

It wasn’t long ago since Sacai teamed up with Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment to release a pair of Nike LDWaffles, but they did have an even newer employee in Clot last month. In stark contrast to the grayscale color scheme of the Fragment release, these latest clot sneakers are done in vibrant orange and red tones and go well with the sandy suede base. The double-stacked midsole and twin swooshes are just a few of the details that make these work darn well.

Yeezy Quantum “Onyx”

Just because Kanye spent last month releasing his new album and buying beachfront property in Malibu doesn’t mean the Yeezy machine isn’t still running at full speed. The latest drop from Kayne’s shoe line is the Yeezy Quantum “Onyx”, which is almost completely blackened except for gray streaks by the Primeknit. They may not be as summery as the Glow Slides, but there’s no doubt they won’t sell out anytime soon.

Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 15

Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 15

Finally, let’s take a look at one of the most hyped Air Jordan collaborations in recent times, despite being as far from traditional as it gets. Billie Eilish has chosen the Air Jordan 15 as her favorite silhouette, a shoe first seen publicly in 1999 after it was designed by Tinker Hatfield. Apparently inspired by an X-15 fighter jet, the design is far from conventional, as is Billie Eilish and her seismic impact on the music business. With a woven upper made of Kevlar® aramid fiber, these neutrally toned 15s are sure to have their own page in the history books.
