Say hello to Ox Street's latest segment!

Say hello to Ox Street's latest segment, where our editors showcase some of our favorites sneakers from the past seven days. Every week, we select a total of five grails that we think should be in your rotation, and to kick things off we have a pretty exciting line-up.

Shop the sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0 "OG" on Ox Street

sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0 "OG"

After unleashing the highly coveted VaporWaffle, Chitose Abe is following it up with the sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0 "OG". Celebrating 50 years since this silhouette made its debut, the Japanese style icon has added her own spin to the original colorway. In typical sacai fashion, the sneaker has been deconstructed to another level. Not only will you find two Swooshes across the side panels, you'll also find double the tongues, sockliners, heels, and even midsoles. Speaking of which, for the first time ever, the Cortez features a visible Air bubble at the forefoot for an increased amount comfort and cushioning. This might just be one of this year's best collabs.

Shop the Air Jordan 4 Retro "Black Canvas" on Ox Street

Air Jordan 4 Retro "Black Canvas"

The Air Jordan 4 is having a massive year. With fire colorway dropping after fire colorway, the hotly-anticipated Air Jordan 4 Retro "Black Canvas" is finally here, and it's no doubt one of the best releases of 2022. Launching just in time for the fall and winter months, the canvas construction is rugged and ready to take on the colder months. Gray accenting makes these even more eye-catching than before, and of course, you can't talk about this shoe without mentioning the Nike Air midsole underfoot that offers an insane amount of comfort and cushioning both on and off the court.

Shop the adidas adiFOM Q "Off-White" on Ox Street

adidas adiFOM Q "Off-White"

Probably one of the most controversial pairs on this list, the adidas adiFOM Q "Off-White" first leaked at the start of the summer and now, it's officially here. Bearing a striking resemblance to Kanye West's Foam Runner, this adi clog-sneaker hybrid actually pays homage to the iconic adidas Quake from 2001. Boasting a one-piece EVA foam construction, cut-outs along the lateral and medial side panels offer optimum ventilation, while a sock-like bootie makes these some of the most versatile shoes that you can buy.

Shop the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe "Dark Sulfur" on Ox Street

Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe "Dark Sulfur"

The New York City-based contemporary artist is certainly no stranger when it comes to creating show-stopping sneakers, but this season, Tom Sachs has gone back to basics with the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe "Dark Sulfur". Blurring the line between a piece of footwear and a piece of utility, this is the second colorway to grace this silhouette. With a vibrant yellow mesh and suede outfit and bright red pull tabs at the tongue and heel, this all sits on top of a cream rubber midsole that will no doubt brighten up your winter fits.

Shop the JJJJound x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 "Silver Black" on Ox Street

JJJJound x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 "Silver Black"

After teaming up with New Balance and PUMA, Justin Saunders now has his sights set on ASICS as he launches the JJJJound x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 "Silver Black". Dropping as part of a two pack collection, this is no doubt the best of the bunch. With crisp mesh base and metallic silver detailing thrown across a retro silhouette, this sneaker is the epitome of the dad shoe. Prices are only going to go up, so cop right now before it's too late.
