Last week’s batch of sneaker releases saw us welcome Russell Westbrook’s second signature kicks with Jordan Brand along with the debut of adidas’ Nite Jogger. Amongst the aforementioned drops, Nike officially revealed Paul George’s Nike PG3 in the form of a collaborative NASA colorway while the Swoosh shared the forthcoming Off-White™ collaboration that will be made available in kid’s sizes. In addition, Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God partnership with Nike is set to expand with an Air Raid-inspired model as Virgil Abloh looks to keep the chunky shoe trend alive with a new sneaker under the Off-White™ umbrella.
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.
NikeCourt Vapor X “Kyrie 5”
Kyrie Irving‘s influence has made its way onto the tennis court. Linking the Boston Celtics’ All-Star with famed tennis player Nick Kyrgios, the two Australian born athletes’ backgrounds are honored with a special NikeCourt Vapor X “Kyrie 5.” The tennis-ready silhouette takes a few design cues from Irving’s fifth signature sneaker, from its venus flytrap-inspired overlay to the heel’s all-seeing eye design.
Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Panda Pigeon”
jeffstaple is set to release his new “Panda Pigeon” iteration for the Nike SB line. Originally a scrapped sample, the contrasting black and white colorway design is complemented by the pigeon logo on the heel alongside green accents on the tongue, heel and insole.
Off-White™ x Nike Air Max 90 “Desert Ore”
Virgil Abloh and Nike’s “THE TEN” collaboration expands once more with a new colorway of the Air Max 90. The earth-toned iteration is dressed in “Desert Ore/Hyper Jade-Bright Mango” and features design cues similar to the offering’s previous release such as contrasting stitching along the upper, unfinished edges and signature zip-tie.
Under Armour Curry 6 “Heart of the Town”
Steph Curry’s sixth signature sneaker is arguably his best yet. The Golden State Warrior’s sharpshooter follows up the model’s inaugural “Fox Theater” edition with an all-red version dubbed “Heart of the Town.” You’ll find its flexible knitted upper sitting atop UA’s full-length HOVR midsole cushioning with Steph’s “SC30” stamped on the midsole.
Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Light Bone”
Jerry Lorenzo‘s Nike Air Fear of God 1 is back in “Light Bone.” This week’s drop follows its debut black colorway that released in December along with a simpler Shoot Around model. The high top design takes away the ballistic nylon from its inaugural drop and coats it with plush leather and suede for a more luxe look and feel. You’ll also find a lacing cage that spans from the midfoot to its rear which is split by a zipper.
Air Jordan 4 “30th Anniversary”
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, the latest version of the popular design is dressed in a black leather upper and covered with Jordan Brand‘s famed laser etched print. You’ll also find color matched lacing flaps and contrasting Jumpman branding at the tongue and heel. Lastly, the design of the shoe is completed by a white midsole unit accented by black elements and a gum rubber outsole.
