Another week of heat.

Once upon a time, long before the hype pervaded popular culture, the major sneaker brands would typically deliver one, maybe two coveted releases a month, with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. Nowadays, it’s commonplace to see these different labels ditch the ‘who, what, where, when and how,’ and instead drop multiple pairs of heat in just one weekend. A welcomed dilemma for most.

With that said, we continue our weekly roundup of the most sought after silhouettes for the week, hoping to make your ‘cop or drop’ decision as easy as possible. Check out the list below and chime in on the styles you’ll be picking up.

Nike Flyknit Trainer (Black/White)

Nike

Release Date: February 27
Release Price: $150 USD, available via select Nike Running retailers and Nike SNKRS

The coveted Black/White colorway of Nike’s Flyknit Trainer returns. The runner’s original design remains intact, with its Flyknit upper welcoming the aforementioned contrasting colors, from its white Swoosh, to its black midsole.

Nike KD 10 “Aunt Pearl”

Nike

Release Date: February 28
Release Price: $150 USD, available via select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike SNKRS

Nike and Kevin Durant carry on the “Aunt Pearl” legacy with the KD 10. The colorway honors KD’s late Aunt Pearl with a light pink hue throughout the entire upper. Striking wings graphics are found on each heel, similar to the design found on the strap of the Nike KD 7 “Aunt Pearl.”

Nike Air Humara

Release Date: February 28
Release Price: $140 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

The all-terrain Air Humara is back in two new colorways. The latest “Concord” and “Dark Russet” iterations welcome 3M reflective detailing with multicolored accents throughout. Mesh is incorporated throughout, while Nike branding is kept to a minimum.

adidas Originals Prophere

Release Date: March 1
Release Price: $120 USD, available via select adidas retailers and adidas.com

The adidas Prophere adds three new colorway options of “Triple Black,” “Triple White” and “Trace Olive.” Each knitted upper is present under a nubuck lacing system designed to mimic the brand’s ubiquitous Three Stripes, while its exaggerated sole unit remains as the main attraction.

adidas Harden Vol. 2 “Traffic Jam”

adidas

Release Date: March 1
Release Price: $140 USD, available via select adidas retailers and adidas.com

James Harden‘s second signature model with adidas was officially revealed around All-Star weekend and already has another colorway to follow. The Harden Vol. 2 ”Traffic Jam” mixes black, white and grey coloring throughout, with BOOST cushioning hitting to the midsole. Speckled laces add extra flair as the model’s lacing system also allows for more than one lockdown approach.

Nike LeBron 15 “Graffiti”

Nike

Release Date: March 2
Release Price: $185 USD, available via select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com

The Nike LeBron 15 adds a familiar color scheme to its growing selection. Similar to the Nike Zoom LeBron 4, the popular “Graffiti” theme makes its way back using LeBron James‘ fifteenth signature sneaker as the canvas. The Battle Knit upper mixes black and white throughout, while its visible Air Max units add a touch of red with subtle graffiti graphics in black.

Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 “White”

Nike

Release Date: March 3 (Europe Exclusive)
Release Price: Approximately $190 USD, available via online raffle

The follow up to the original Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 is finally releasing. The Europe exclusive is dominated in White coloring with hints of light blue found on its underlay. Abloh’s signature stamp of approval also returns to the medial side, along with the “AIR” logo placed on the midsole’s lateral side.

Air Jordan 13 (White/Royal)

Nike

Release Date: March 3
Release Price: $190 USD, available via select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

Jordan Brand welcomes back the Air Jordan 13 in a brand new colorway. The drop pays homage to the original White/University Red iteration by swapping Royal coloring for the expected shade of red. The model’s original design remains intact thanks to its asymmetrical lateral and medial paneling, hologram and cat-inspired outsole.
