All of the August release dates you need to know about.
The Summer Olympics are upon us and brands across the board are looking to cash in on the patriotism of sneakerheads who want to support the USA, despite the fact that many of them probably won't be tuning in for the Men's 400M Individual Medley or the Women's Single Sculls Rowing event.
Needless to say, there are plenty of "USA" colorways of sneakers releasing this month, including a special edition "Olympic" Air Jordan 7 that Michael Jordan originally turned down in favor of the classic "Olympic" 7s that he wore during the Dream Team's run in 1992.
Additionally, Jordan Brand and Adidas will be releasing some more inclusive Olympic-themed kicks inspired by the medals that will be handed out throughout the next two weeks.
There are plenty of sneakers dropping in August but we've narrowed the list down to our 10 favorites- hit the slides to see what release dates you need to keep your eye on.
Note: The "Barons" Air Jordan 12 GS, as the name suggests, will only be releasing up to a size 9.5 so I've kept it off the list. That said, it's definitely one of the best sneakers releasing this month so if you can squeeze into a 9.5, you can find everything you need to know about that release right here.
