New week, nAre we halfway through May already?! Time seems to be moving at record speed recently, which means that these drops are too. This week, we’ve rounded up the ones not to be missed – from ASMR exhibitions in London, to JJJound’s apparel.

NEW BALANCE GREY DAY

The king of collaborative sneakers, New Balance has come through with three fresh silhouettes for grey day.

Floating around the $100 mark, the drop is out now in Asia and Latin America, and hits the U.S and Europe on May 21.
