As we wave goodbye to 2018 we take a look at the new year’s first batch of footwear drops. The previous week saw an impressive selection of releases, from the Fear of God x Nike Air Skylon II, to new “Static” YEEZYs and collaborative Nike Kyrie 5. This week sees a calm start to 2019, with the introduction of Russell Westbrook‘s second signature sneaker in addition to the first return of the Air Jordan 19.

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.

Jordan Why Not Zer0.2

Sneaker Bar Detroit

Release Date: January 2
Release Price:  N/A, available at select Jordan Brand and Nike SNKRS

Russell Westbrook continues his signature line with Jordan Brand, introducing the new Why Not Zer0.2. Built for performance, its industrial aesthetic differs from the Why Noe Zer0.1’s smooth vamp upper, opting for a construction that exposes its many functional features. For the inaugural release, the model’s multilayer upper is showcased through a mix of blue, orange red, black and navy.

Nike Air Monarch IV “Snow Day”

Nike

Release Date: January 3
Release Price:  $120 USD, available at select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

The Nike Air Monarch IV is back with a seasonally-appropriate drop. The latest all-white colorway receives the nickname “Snow Day” in preparation for snowstorms to come, as it stars a sherpa lining, icy blue outsole and snowflake embroidery.

Under Armour Curry 6 “Fox Theater”

Under Armour

Release Date: January 4
Release Price:  $130 USD, available at select Under Armour retailers and UnderArmour.com

The two-time NBA MVP continues to showcase his preference for low-pro sneakers with the introduction of the Curry 6. The shoe’s black knit upper is accented by bold neon hits of green, yellow and orange throughout. Best of all, the SC6 rests atop UA’s responsive HOVR cushioning technology.

Air Jordan 19 OG “Flint”

Nike

Release Date: January 5
Release Price:  $225, available at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

The Air Jordan 19 makes its first return since originally releasing back in 2004. The black mamba-inspired silhouette and fencing-inspired colorway come together at the shroud’s mixture of metallic grey Tech Flex and white patent leather accents. What makes this model special is Carmelo Anthony’s “Melo” script logo appearing on each sockliner, an ode to him wearing the same colorway during the 2004 Rookie Challenge.
