Only a week into 2019 and we’ve already seen a first look at Derrick Rose’s next signature sneaker, and listened to adidas’ Jon Wexler recount how he landed the most coveted job in footwear, while a slew of collaborations have been announced, from jeffstaple’s “Panda Pigeon” Dunk to an all-red A-COLD-WALL* x Nike Zoom Vomero +5.

This week, we’ll see the launch of Russell Westbrook’s second signature sneaker with JB, the Why Not Zer0.2, alongside the collaborative Cav Empt x Nike Air 95 pack, an updated adidas Nite Jogger, and more.

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.

Debuting on January 1, Russell Westbrook‘s Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 is set to release on Thursday after missing last week’s initial launch date. 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.

Cav Empt x Nike Air Max 95 Pack

Release Date: January 10
Release Price:  $200 USD, available at select Nike Sportswear retailers, Cav Empt and Nike SNKRS

Delivered in “Blackened Blue” and white, each upper shares a contrasting digital camouflage pattern, where tan is paired with navy, and black with white, respectively. The collaborative offering also welcomes speckled laces and Cav Empt branding on the tongue and insole.

A-COLD-WALL* x Nike Air Force 1 Low

Release Date: January 10
Release Price:  $190 USD, available at select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

The A-COLD-WALL* x Nike Air Force 1 Low makes a quick comeback after a limited December release. Available in white or black colorways with each being comprised of Nike’s Flyleather material, each iteration sports ACW* insignias on the lateral sides, complementing the perforated Swoosh logos.

adidas Originals Nite Jogger

adidas

Release Date: January 12

For the first colorway of the updated Nite Jogger we’re presented with this “Core Black/Carbon/Active Blue” option, where a bright orange stands out against a black base. The sneaker incorporates BOOST cushioning at the midsole, in addition to reflective accents and a mix of mesh and nylon panels.

Martine Rose x Nike Air Monarch IV Pack

Release Date: January 12
Release Price:  $250 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

Done in “White/Metallic Silver” or “Black/Black,” this collaboration showcases  Martine Rose’s imaginative approach, which started with fitting a size 18 upper onto a size 9 sole unit. The bubbly sneakers also share the designer’s script, printed on the midfoot and insoles.

Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Light Bone/Black”

Sneaker Bar Detroit

Release Date: January 12
Release Price:  $350 USD, available at select Nike retailers and Nike SNKRS

Last month, Jerry Lorenzo introduced the Nike Air Fear of God 1 in “Black/Black”, and now we’re set to receive a “Light Bone/Black” edition. Resting atop a thick sole unit with a double-stacked Zoom unit in the heel, plush leather and suede come together along the upper, with a TPU cage providing added support.
