This quarantine has most of us skating holes through our shoes. No matter how many pairs you’ve gone through these past months, you can never go wrong with a new pair. This week’s list sees the Nike SB Dunk family grow even bigger, while Shane O’Neill’s model gets a new colorway. The Adidas Superstars comes in new colors. Lastly, Lakai presents its FTP collaboration.

Here’s this week’s Top 10:

 

#1 Civilist Berlin x Nike SB Dunk Low

Release date: coming soon

Nike SB keeps pushing their Dunks amidst the massive Dunk Low hype. For this model, Nike teamed up with a local Berlin skate shop, Civilist, for yet another collaboration. The new Dunk Lows stick to the monochromatic color scheme from previous collaborative models. The glitch patterned overlays, similar to that seen on the Atmos Elephant Dunk Lows and Supremes “Black Cement” Dunks, is combined with a white toebox and swoosh along with a black tongue, lacing, and a quarter. The shoe also features a pebble grain texture providing and an upper with extra grip. An official release date is yet to be announced.

 

#2 7-Eleven x Nike SB Dunk Low

Release date: TBA

One of the most unexpected and playful shoes on this week’s list is the 7-Eleven x Nike SB Dunk Lows. The shoe sports color blocking in red, orange, and green along with the 7-Eleven logo. 

The official collaboration is yet to be announced, but with detailed pictures of the model circulating social media, the odds are high that we’ll see an official 7-Eleven x Nike SB release soon. 

 

#3 Lakai x FTP

Release date: coming soon

This week saw a pair of Lakai x FTP collaborative skate shoe surface on social media. Although the release date hasn’t been officially announced, the release is expected to come soon.  Based on the leaked photos, the collaboration will see the release of two different models. The collaboration celebrates 10 years of FTP and sees both shoes dressed in a black upper with a reflective, gold Lakai midfoot logo along with “FTP” printed on the other side.

We should note the “10 Years of FTP” text isn’t actually part of the shoe, just part of the images that have leaked.
