Keeping track of sneaker releases can be tricky at the best of times, but as the OG’s in Organising The Chaos, we’ve made it simple for you. Below is a list of the hottest drops this week, so you don’t take any L’s! Check our newsfeed every Monday for an updated round up.
Making an iconic return almost two decades post debut, the Air Jordan 13 Retro ‘Wheat’ is back. We can practically feel the excitement exuding from you old school sneaker fanatics, and we completely understand why. After all, the model is widely recognised as one of the most high-demand AJ Retros ever made, and we’re 24 hours away from getting our hands on it! Expressing an exterior that’s highly reminiscent of the OG, the sneaker maintains the same golden colour scheme and material construction. You’ve waited this long, make sure you don’t lack!
‘Habanero’ 1203A525-100 & ‘Midnight’ 1203A322-020
Executed by the creative mind of Copenhagen designer, Cecilie Bahnsen, this dynamic capsule takes notes from the concept of upcycling. Displaying a seamless blend of performance tech persona and Bahnsen’s feminine touch, these kicks are both pretty and practical. Floral patterning adorns the hook and loop closure, working atop a ripstop mesh base for a stealthy flair. Landing in two contrasting palettes ‘Habanero’ and ‘Midnight’, these collaborative GT-2160’s do all of the talking.
Launching for the very first time earlier this year, the Three Stripes welcome the Consortium Cup – a month-long footwear competition. Sixteen of the most highly attributed sneaker retailers were selected to participate in a design tournament, whereby each admission was voted on a weekly knockout basis. After rounds of voting, the final saw two of our own British retailers go head-to-head for the title, with Offspring taking the crown. Nine months post competition, and we finally have the chance to cop a wide variety of the retailers’ Samba renditions. Retailers include Nice Kicks, Kasina, Sneaker Politics, END., Extra Butter, and of course, Offspring. Don’t miss the opportunity to grab these special Samba’s!

Bringing a retro silhouette into the modern day, Korean label UNAFFECTED delivers a collaborative offering with asics. Landing in three dynamic colourways of ‘Dark Shadow’, ‘Bright White’ and ‘Bottle Green’, the partnership utilises the popular GEL-Kayano 14 model for a stealthy and contemporary steez. A black hue is carried throughout each iteration, providing a grounded base that can be styled across various aesthetics. Synthetic overlays and a geometric lower keep things refreshingly vibrant – the perfect runner for performance tech and streamlined aesthetic.
Back for another helping of collaborative heat, Dime and Reebok return with a fresh reimagining of the Club C Revenge and Club C BULC. Constructed from an entirely suede build, the Club C Revenge arrives in two neutral palettes of ‘Asteroid Dust’ and ‘Light Sand’ – ideal for laid-back styling within the autumnal season. The Club C BULC, however, is not one for sitting on the sidelines, boasting a metallic persona that needs no introduction. With the capsule taking clear visual notes from the golden age of Y2K, the capsule is due to be a hit with the fashion connoisseurs of today.
With its arrival initially teased allllllll the way back in January, the Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Fear’ is finally around the corner. Entering the market a decade after the OG launched, old school sneaker junkies will be buzzing to know that this release is more or less identical to its iconic predecessor. Consisting of a predominantly greyscale exterior, the silhouette is host to striking hits of ‘Total Orange’ within eyelets and tongue branding. It wouldn’t be an AJ3 Retro without the distinctive elephant print flooding the toe and heel accents, sat atop a white and dark grey outer.
The Parisian inspired label, A Ma Maniére, is joining forces with Jumpman for their third collaborative Air Jordan 5 Retro. This iteration is perfect for those smart casual occasions where pristine footwear is a must. Arriving in a ‘Photon Dust’ colourway, these collaborative AJ5’s boast a sophisticated construction of premium suede, expressing a regal flair. Flaunting contrasting light and dark uppers, the kicks flaunt A Ma Maniére badging within the tongue and outsole. Incorporating AMA’s own creative stamp, a custom monogram cage and jacquard patterned liner adorn the exterior.
If you’re a fan of sneakers with character, then look no further. Introducing the Nike Dunk SB Low x April Skateboards ‘Turbo Green’. Flaunting suede overlays doused in a tiffany-esque hue, the upper works atop a breathable mesh base for a clean contrast. Fashioned from premium materials, this sneaker promises a blend of style and durability, adorned with metallic Swooshes and co-branding for a distinctive look.
A homage to the original Nike Mac Attack sneaker from the 1980s, the Nike Mac Attack OG ‘Light Smoke Grey’ is available now. The retro sneaker offers a mix of nostalgia and contemporary style, bringing back the vintage look. The Nike Mac Attack OG is given an understated and versatile appearance with the ‘Light Smoke Grey’ colorway. Durable leather, mesh, and nylon make up the upper of the sneaker, providing a comfortable and durable fit. Grey adds a touch of subtlety to the design, making it easy to pair with a variety of outfits.
