Treat yourself. It is, after all, the last month of summer.

Another month, another handful of sneakers we’re adding to our closets. This summer has been full of back-to-back drops and the dreamiest of all dreamy sneakers. Our credit cards are crying out for help, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? And if that means scooping up ten pairs of sneakers in one month, so be it. Consider it fashion week outfit prep. You’re welcome.


Nike Monarch M2K Tekno: Available exclusively on JohnElliott.co, you now have another chance to score a pair of these hot ticket sneakers. We highly suggest jumping on them immediately given the fact that the Phantom colorway has already sold out (and they only became available this AM). Go go go.

Kith x Coca-Cola x Converse Chuck Taylor 1970 "China": No secret we're in love with Kith's latest Coca-Cola collaboration, or these sneakers belonging to it. Launching this Friday, August 17th, for $150 at Kith, we're betting they'll sell out in matter of minutes. We suggest you choose your favorite version ahead of time. It wouldn't hurt to memorize your credit card number either, just saying.

Converse x Dover Street Market One Star: We're big fans of both Converse and Dover Street Market, so we're naturally obsessed with their One Star collab, dropping August 4. The sneaker, which will be available exclusively at Dover Street Market and doverstreetmarket.com, will retail for $100.

Nike Air Max 95 ERDL Party: Air Max 95s have been having a moment this year. Not only are they mad comfortable, but they look good with pretty much, well, anything. No joke. We're practically drooling over this camo party version releasing August 4. They'll retail for $190.

Puma Thunder Desert: The chunky sneaker trend continues with Puma’s latest Thunder Desert sneakers. We’re all over this Natural Vachetta colorway that is set to release tomorrow, August 2, for $130. The style will also be available in Smoke Green.

Pharrell x Adidas NMD Hu Solar Pack: We’re no strangers to Pharrell’s highly sought-after Adidas NMDs. The artist continues to impress us with his designs, and this release is no different. Deemed ‘Solar Pack,’ the drop includes two different colorways, the above and also a teal, purple, and orange design. Both pairs are set to drop August 18 and will retail for $250.

Nike Vapormax Plus Creamsicle: Before we even looked at the name of these babies, we were telling one another that they looked good enough to eat. Admit it—they have an amazing butter-y look to them. Mark your calendars, these sneakers release August 9 and will retail for $190.

Reebok Run.r96: Reebok first released this style at the beginning of June in all-white, and now it’s back, in a slightly softer colorway. The cream sneaker is set to release this Friday, August 3, and will retail for $220. Even if you copped the white pair in June, we firmly believe that you can never have too many sneakers, so we suggest you grab a pair of these as well.

APL Sea Salt Techloom Breeze: While we love a good lifestyle sneaker just as much as the next person, we’ve recently been paying more attention to what sneakers are on our feet as we head to the gym. Lately, it’s all about APL (Athletic Propulsion Labs). The brand always delivers in both aesthetic and function. Their entire fall collection is launching August 23 (you heard it here first!), and that includes these Sea Salt Techlooms that we’re in love with. The rest of the collection includes 19 other colorways in the Techloom Breeze, as well as 20 new colorways in the Techloom Bliss. Good news all around.

Fila Disruptor 2 Premium: We’re pretty much obsessed with chunky sneakers, and love the clean vibe of these Filas. They’re the perfect end-of-summer purchase—wear them with your shorts and dresses now, and then wear them as a transition shoe into fall (sorry to bring that up). They release August 17 for $65.
