Top 60 Sneaker Releases in August

From Olympic-Themed High-Tops to Simplistic Bauhaus Sneakers

— August 2, 2016 — Fashion
These August 2016 sneaker releases range from olympic-themed high-tops to simplistic sneaker lines that pay tribute to legendary design institution Bauhaus. In addition to the month's commemorative examples -- whether paying homage to the Olympic games, important brand anniversaries or patriotism -- other notable styles include highlighter-hued flatforms as well as gilded sneakers like rapper Drake's commissioned OVO 24k Gold Air Jordan kicks.

When examining the month's performance-focused examples, top sneaker releases include the Puma X-CAT DISC model which was inspired by the BMW's Gina vehicle. Those seeking a blend of practicality and style will fall in love with styles like Vans Japan's ornate and comfortable range. The collection combines the brand's iconic slip-on silhouette with cultural motifs that are hand-embroidered on the exterior face of each shoe.
