Virgil Abloh x Nike's "The Ten" Commands the Spotlight of This Week's Sneaker Drops

Let the sneaker Gods be with you.

By //Footwear 

Once upon a time, Nike, adidas and other sneaker brands would bless us with releases of coveted sneakers once or twice a month. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for different footwear labels to drop multiple pairs of heat in just one weekend. Making it easier for you to choose whether to cop or drop, we continue our weekly roundup of the silhouettes that will be sought after this week. Check out the list below and chime in on the styles you’ll be picking up.

Nike Air Max 90 “Doernbecher”

The one that started it all makes its return in a contemporary form. The Air Jordan 1’s popular “Bred” color scheme makes a comeback using Nike’s innovative Flyknit technology. The expected leather isn’t shelved for good as its placed on the model’s inner lining as an homage to the past.

Sneakerness x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Passport”

Sneakers Addict

Virgil Abloh x Nike “The Ten”
