SNEAKER RELEASES THIS WEEKEND: OCT 22/23
October is such a pivotal month for a lot of brands and retailers as it is the start of the new season (Holiday/Winter 2016). Aside from it being the start of the season, we’re also right around the NBA Tip-Off! The new NBA season tips off on the 26th and you’re sure to see new footwear from all the brands (we haven’t event scratched the surface with what’s coming out). Lastly, next weekend’s Halloween, so do expect a couple of pairs on that angle as well.
