Bad Bunny Reworks the adidas Response CL in This Week’s Best Footwear Drops (2022)

Sneaker lovers should be extra excited this week as brands from Nike to adidas to Vans have a batch of big-ticket products in the pipeline waiting to hit the shelves, but before we get into all of those, let’s first tap into all of the action that went down in the footwear world last week.

HYPBEAST’s Sole Mates series welcomed in another honored guest to its ranks in Cesar Idrobo — a key footwear innovation designer for the YEEZY brand — in which he spoke with us about his love for the ever classic Reebok Instapump Fury. Another exclusive included our ongoing TAGGED series which delved into DJ Khaled unpacking a collection of extra rare Nike kicks. Some major moments were revealed on behalf of the Nike family last week including a first look at the Nike Air Max 1 PRM “Wabi-Sabi” that’s expected to drop for Air Max Day, the return of the Nike LeBron 4 “Fruity Pebbles” and the reveal of the Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 “Mellow.” Jordan Brand also came in with some big news such as the highly anticipated return of the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago,” a sneak peek at the Maison Château Rouge x Air Jordan 2 and an early look at the Air Jordan 2 Low “Responsibility.”

adidas has also been cooking up some notable footwear offerings, and last week the German brand unveiled the adidas YEEZY FOAM RNNR “Stone Sage” and “Mist” colorways, the adidas YEEZY Quantum “Mono Carbon” and a stealthy Supernova Cushion 7. In terms of other brands, we caught an early glance at the Palm Angels x Vans Sk8-Hi, Eames and Reebok’s for Club C “Composition & Dot Pattern” Pack and Drake’s latest OVO x Suicoke PEPPER and BOWER collaborations.

Now that you’ve got all the latest and greatest sneaker updates, browse through this week’s best footwear drops here below. In addition, head over to HBX to shop new footwear styles.
