This upcoming week of sneaker releases is a little slower than usual, but there are still a good amount of pairs worth paying attention to that are dropping over the next few days.
Releases kick off early this week with the Stranger Things x Nike "Starcourt Mall" collab hitting select retailers on Tuesday. Things pick back up on Thursday with the Nike Joyride collection getting its first wide launch. On Friday, the Joshua Vides x Converse Chuck 70 pack—previously exclusive to ComplexCon Chicago—receives a wider release.
The drops conclude on Saturday with the Adidas ZX 6000, Nike AlphaDunk "Hoverboard," "Purple Camouflage" Air Foamposite Pro, and "Satin Black Toe" Air Jordan I all up for grabs.
For a detailed look at all of these pairs, check out a Complete Guide to This Weekend's Sneaker Releases.

What You Need to Know: Another Stranger Things x Nike collection is hitting retailers this week inspired by one of the most prominent locations of the third season, the Starcourt Mall. The Cortez, Air Tailwind '79, and Blazer Mid are once again featured. This time, each retro silhouette is dressed in a beige nylon upper that is designed to be worn away over time to reveal a secondary layer underneath. Other details include co-branded tongue tags, insoles covered in schematics that hint to a major plot point of the show's latest season, special packaging, and a commemorative pin set.

What You Need to Know: Joshua Vides' Converse collaboration originally released exclusively at ComplexCon Chicago this past July, but it is getting a wider release on Friday. Both pairs allow for some personal customization thanks to interchangeable Velcro panels in multiple colors. Vides' signature sketch-like style can also be seen showcased on the rubber toe cap and midsole.
