Summer is officially here, and if you still haven't sorted out your rotation yet, this week is going to be a pretty important one!

Also, if you think any other pairs should be on this list, make sure to let us know over on Instagram, and don't forget to follow us as well for the best content that the Asian sneaker community has to offer!
Hype surrounding adidas' Samba silhouette is currently at an all time high, and if for whatever reason you still don't have a pair in your collection, the Sporty & Rich x adidas Samba OG "Cream Blue" is a must cop. Made in collaboration with Emily Oberg's lifestyle label, it boasts a creamy leather and suede construction with baby blue hues throughout. All of this sits on top of a gum rubber midsole, and comes complete with pearly accessories throughout.
Believe it or not, the Jacquemus x Nike J Force 1 Low "White" is one of this year's most hyped collaborations. Teased by Simon Porte Jacquemus all the way back in January, the French designer's take on the classic Air Force 1 is as unique as it gets. Boasting a luxurious all-leather upper, the usual Swoosh has been replaced with a single silver stud, and the woven midsole nods to the ACG Terra. While the JF1 is a women's exclusive, extended sizing means that guys can still squeeze into them.
Dropping as part of the N7 initiative, which focuses on getting youth in Native American and Indigenous communities moving, the Nike SB Dunk Low Decon "N7" is one of the latest sneakers to drop as part of the collection. Taking on the ever-popular skateboarding shoe, it has been deconstructed with visible stitching and decorated with beautiful floral details throughout. It's then lined with an icy blue rubber outsole, finalizing the design.
Could the Nike Mac Attack OG "Light Smoke Grey" be one of the most exciting drops of the year? We think so. Originally released back in 1984, it was made exclusively for tennis legend John McEnroe. Now, almost 40 years later, it's officially back and better than ever. Crafted from mesh and leather, it even comes with the iconic checkerboard tongue which debuted all the way back in the '80s, and comes packed in a checkerboard shoebox as well. Very neat.
And last but certainly not least, we have the Salehe Bembury x Crocs Pollex Clog "Horchata." The latest colorway to his the New York creative's Crocs collab, the creamy hue is inspired by the Spanish beverage of the same name. Crafted from Croslite foam, it's equipped with a Velcro-fastened strap around the heel and comes with plenty of perforations throughout the upper for excellent ventilation – particularly important if you live in a humid climate like us here at Ox Street.
