Last week we say the return of the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” amongst additional drops such as a collaboration from Eric Emanuel and adidas Originals, a collection from Carhartt WIP and Nike, the PUMA CELL Venom and much more. This week shares a profound batch of drops from Jerry Lorenzo’s Nike Air Fear of God 1 to an Air Jordan 1 inspired by the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film. In addition, Nike will continue its Doernbecher Freestyle collection history while YEEZY welcomes back the 350 V2 “Semi-Frozen Yellow.” Take a look at what else is dropping this week and let us know what you plan on adding to your Christmas list.
Our weekly drop continues as we showcase releases to look for from your favorite brands, curating the most hyped releases and strongest silhouette/colorway combinations that should not be missed. Take a look at the list below and let us know what launches you’re looking forward to.
Stüssy x Nike Zoom Blazer
The Stüssy x Nike SB Blazer Mid “Midwest Gold” adds hairy suede on its upper, and is joined by a leopard stencil which allows you to customize it to your own liking. The mid-cut model is also joined by a contrasting Blazer Low iteration – done in black – created alongside Stüssy’s own Kevin Terpening.
A-COLD-WALL* x Nike Zoom Vomero +5
The aggressive collaboration from A-COLD-WALL* and Nike incorporates technical Japanese nylon while the coating on its overlay has been removed to force the sneakers to discolor over time. Additional branding can be found with Swooshes on both the lateral and medial sides in addition to A-COLD-WALL* callouts seen on the inner sole, enlarged heel cap and toe cap.
Air Jordan 1 “Origin Story”
Inspired by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, this Air Jordan 1 colorway spices up the OG “Chicago” iteration with a speckled translucent outsole and reflective 3M dots all throughout the upper. The drop is also expected to be housed in special packaging which continues its overall textured theme in honor of the animated film.

Similar to the first edition, the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Semi-Frozen Yellow” welcomes bright neon green to coincide with its moniker while the lateral side’s reversed “SPLY-350” stamp is done in red. The bright upper is contrasted by “Grey Steel” and topped off with a gum rubber outsole.

Air Jordan 3 “Mocha”
Back in its original form, the Air Jordan 3 “Mocha” sees a tumbled leather upper in crisp white with elephant print detailing on its heel and toe shared in the “Mocha” shade. Lastly, the aforementioned brown hits are matched on the Jumpman branding in addition to portions of the outsole.
White Mountainerring x adidas TERREX
adidas TERREX takes things off-road once more alongside White Mountaineering. The collaborative duo includes the Two GTX and Fast GTX Surround in contrasting black and white colorways. Sporting GORE-TEX waterproof lining, each model adds large “WHITE” branding to complement their rugged, weather-ready looks.
Nike Air Fear of God 1
The forthcoming collaboration from Jerry Lorenzo‘s Fear of God and Nike Basketball adds a double-stacked Zoom unit to its thick sole in addition to an easy zipper closure at the back. The Huarache Light-inspired TPU cage is perhaps the pair’s most noticeable feature which holds a mini swoosh print for a subtle brand callout. Lastly, its innovative shape welcomes numerous lacing options such as being wrapped around the ankle or your traditional lacing setup.
