Jordan Brand is set to deliver yet another special homage to Derek Jeter. This time around, the Air Jordan 11 Low receives the “RE2PECT” makeover thanks to blue suede upper and white sole unit.

The ACRONYM® x Nike Air VaporMax Moc 2 is back to complete the trio of colorways revealed earlier in the year. Dubbed “Thirsty Bandit,” you’ll find a mix of Sail/Cargo Khaki-Dark Stucco throughout its Flyknit upper. This release follows the “Johnny’s Icy Passage” and “The Illusional ‘Ja” iterations.

Air Jordan 14 “Desert Sand”

Nike

Release Date: May 15
Release Price:  $190 USD, available via select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

This week’s drop also see a ”Desert Sand” theme of the Air Jordan 14. Tan suede makes its way onto the upper with infrared 23 accents on the heel and midsole, while the remaining portion of the midsole is treated in white. Its Ferrari-inspired logo returns to the lateral sides, with Michael Jordan’s #23 also returning to the heel.

Air Jordan 1 “Homage to Home”

Nike

Release Date: May 19
Release Price:  $160 USD, available via select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

The Air Jordan 1 ”Homage to Home” combines two of its most notable coloways, as the ”Banned” and “Chicago” iterations are split down the middle and fused together. The release pays tribute to MJ’s contribution to the city of Chicago during his time with the Bulls and beyond.

Converse Fastbreak Hi “No Easy Buckets”

Converse

Release Date: May 17
Release Price:  $95 USD, available via select Converse retailers and Nike SNKRS

Dressed in green and white, this Converse Fastbreak Hi remembers Kevin Mchale’s infamous foul on Kurt Rambis in the 1984 NBA Finals. That moment in the Lakers vs. Celtics rivalry would ignite the Boston Celtics to go on and win the series, making this drop great for one of the two fanbases involved in this commemorative release.

Converse Star Player Low “Intangibles”

Converse

Release Date: May 17
Release Price:  $75 USD, available via select Converse retailers and Nike SNKRS

Nike’s “Art of a Champion” Collection continues with the Converse Star Player low, spotlighting Wes Unseld’s determination in the 1978 NBA Finals. After being swept two years in a row, Unseld would play a key role in winning a championship in game seven against the Seattle Supersonics: the game was sealed by two Unseld free throws on his way to Finals MVP honors.

adidas Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit

adidas

Release Date: May 15
Release Price:  $175 USD, available via select adidas retailers and adidas.com.

adidas’ Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit returns in “real Purple.” The basketball-inspired sneaker shares Primeknit weaving throughout its entire upper as it rests atop a thick white midsole. Attention-commanding stripes make their way up from the toebox to the midfoot area as a large heel tab is incorporated to complete its modern look.

Nike Air Max 97/BW SK

Nike

Skepta and Nike have reunited for another collaboration. This time around, the Air Max 97 and Air Max BW are combined to create the Air Max 97/BW SK.

The left sneaker welcomes blue Swooshes while the right sees red, thus creating a mismatched look.
