October has been a HUGE month for sneakers. With fire releases dropping after fire releases, there’s never been a better time to be a sneakerhead. That being said, we’ve done the impossible task of rounding up the ten best drops of this month. From general releases to some of the most exclusive kicks in the world, we’ve carefully handpicked Coptober’s most desirable drops that you need in your sneaker collection!
Kicking off Coptober, Off-White reunited with Nike for the hotly anticipated Off-White x Nike Blazer Spooky Pack on October 3rd. Comprising of the ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ and ‘Grim Reaper’, the former is painted in a clean tonal colourway, with ‘Hyper Jade‘ accents throughout and a large orange Swoosh shooting down the side panels that kind of resemble the colour of pumpkins. The latter, on the other hand, arrives in a stealthy grim reaper-like shade, with white detailing and a complementary Swoosh for a bit of added contrast.October 11th saw the release of the hotly anticipated Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe. Featuring a pair of Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers stitched into an inner layer, these other-worldly sneakers are covered with a waterproof Dyneema material for extra warmth. A cord lock secures the shoes in place, while magnetic buckles offer the optimum lockdown fit.
An offshoot of UNDERCOVER, the Gyakusou x Nike Zoom Fly SP collection features a stretch woven Flymesh upper accented by matching dynamic stripes along the toe and midfoot, along with mini Swoosh and crossbones branding done in white. Released on October 6th in three distinct colourways, a Lunarlon cushioning system sits underfoot, while a full length carbon-infused nylon torsion plate and segmented rubber outsole complete the design.Boasting a more pared-down aesthetic compared to the first iteration, the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor 70 dropped on October 8th. Painted in a clean white canvas complete with a bold orange outsole and zip tie, Off-White’s signature verbiage hits the side, and down below, a black and white rubber midsole can be seen, resembling Virgil Abloh’s iconic striped motif.
Painted in a monotone oxidised green hue, the Daniel Arsham x adidas Futurecraft 4D is the holy grail for many sneakerheads. Released on October 12th, these forward-thinking sneakers are crafted from Primeknit and sit on top of a sole unit made with light and oxygen via Digital Light Synthesis, a 3D printing process that provides unprecedented support, cushioning, and energy return. To top it all off, speckled laces are added to complement the intricate perforations across the model.Hitting shelves on October 17th, the adidas Futurecraft 4D I-5923 arrived as part of the ‘Never Made’ collection. The epitome of classic-meets-contemporary, the upper is borrowed straight from the I-5923, adopting the retro runner’s knitted mesh construction and premium suede overlays, whilst the 3D printed midsole is clearly taken from the coveted Futurecraft 4D. To round it all off, clean white Three Stripe branding adorns the lateral and medial sides, and a Continental rubber outsole provides unbeatable durability and toughness with every step.
