adidas Flux “Monochrome Diamond”
Release Date: September 24
Nestled into the final weeks of September will be a new slew of adidas Flux colorways dropping at Champs Sports. Already available in many different colorways, this shoe is a direct descendant of the ZX 8000, a 1989 release. The canvas is perfect for creative storytelling, and thus offers all of us the chance to make it our own.
It’s a toned-down sneaker that’ll work with whatever you are doing, and yet will still look good in jeans. This colorway, in particular, figures to be a massive fall hit. With an all-white midsole, the shoe’s upper pops with a diamond fractal design.

Air Jordan XX9
Release Date: September 6
The 29th sneaker in the infamous Air Jordan line, the release of the XX9 will be typically wild. With a performance-woven upper, a first, it’ll continue what’s been a tradition for Jordan Brand: to test out and unveil new technology in their signature sneakers. We saw it with the Air Jordan 3 sporting Visible Air, then carbon fiber taking over in the 11, and then last year when the XX8 dropped with the incredible Flight Plate tech.
Anyone getting ready for basketball tryouts this year needs to be up on this one.

Growing up, there were very few things I enjoyed about the “back to school” craze. One of them, though, was always the sneakers. Hitting up the mall, heading out to your local Champs Sports spot, telling your mom I want those right there! Nothing felt better than walking into school on that first day back and having people check out your feet. You were on top of the world.
With September here, it’s that time of year again, meaning that along with homework and football and new homeroom teachers in school, you’ll be seeing new sneakers. Thankfully, this month is loaded with hot releases, everything from the Air Jordan XX9 to the adidas Flux. Stay ahead of the game by taking a look at the following shoes, all of which should be highlights for any sneakerhead this month.
