November 2021 has transitioned into its second week, and amid the celebrations of the Veterans Day holiday, a handful of sneaker brands have lined up a compelling assortment of new releases. This week, we’re going to witness Jordan Brand, Nike, New Balance and others bring out some heaters for your rotation, but before we break those down, let’s take a moment to first reflect on all of the biggest sneaker news stories that popped up last week.

For new HYPEBEAST exclusives, our Sole Mates editorial series kept trucking along with an interesting conversation with Select Vintage’s Al Martinello about his fandom over Allen Iverson and his signature Reebok Question Mid. Additionally, we also captured a closer look at Steph Curry’s Sesame Street x Curry Flow 9 “Taking Cookies” collaboration. On the news front, headlines came pouring out from the Jordan Brand family as it officially unveiled its A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1 High, the Air Jordan 1 High “Bordeaux,” the Air Jordan 9 “Chile Red” and provided a first glimpse of the CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low. Its Beaverton office neighbors over at Nike also had a bevy to uncover including the LeBron 9 “Watch the Throne” colorway, the Fall-appropriate Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 “Wheat” and Travis Scott’s upcoming Air Max 1 collaborations.

Kanye West and adidas made sure to be active last week as well as they pulled back the curtains on some upcoming footwear including the adidas YEEZY 500 “Ash Grey,” the winter-ready adidas Yeezy NSTLD Boot “Khaki,” and the YEEZY Knit Runner Boot “Sulfur” which is set to make its debut this week. Elsewhere under the Three Stripes umbrella, shifty point guard Trae Young also gave a detailed look of his Atlanta-inspired Trae Young 1 “Peach Tree” colorway.

In terms of other brands, Vans and MOCA showed off the second chapter of their footwear collection, Todd Snyder and New Balance produced an elevated take of the 57/40 and SVD linked with 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi and Salomon for a Bamba 2 High GTX collaboration in celebration of its 10-year anniversary.

Now that you’re all caught up on the latest in sneakers, let’s dive into the top 10 drops of this week. And whenever you finish up, be sure to check out HBX for more footwear styles.

Nike SB Dunk High “Gundam”

Release Date: November 10
Release Price: $110 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: If you’re a loyal fan of Gundam and Dunks, then look no further. The iconic anime franchise has lent its touch to the SB Dunk High and remixed it with a bevy of robotic detailing. Everything from the RX-0 Unicorn stamp to the intricately cut, removable Swooshes to the toe boxes are done up with meticulous precision and will certainly be a grail for die-hard Gundam collectors.

Concepts x New Balance 992 “Low Hanging Fruit”

Release Date: November 10
Release Price: $240 USD
Where to Buy: Concepts
Why You Should Cop: Deon Point and his team over at Concepts have once again reunited with New Balance to present the 992 “Low Hanging Fruit” makeup. The playful colorway mirrors the aesthetic of a juicy kiwi on the outside and comes complemented with insoles that are dressed with a collage of sweet strawberries. The project aims to channel the entrepreneurial spirit of a fruit seller.

Air Jordan 13 Low “Singles’ Day”

Release Date: November 11
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: For this year’s Singles’ Day — a holiday that is traditionally celebrated in China — Jordan Brand has produced a striking new Air Jordan 13 Low colorway. The color-blocking here merges minty green paneling with solid black accents, the former of which covers most of the real estate and features quilted padding along the lateral and medial sides that reveal a hidden code when exposed to UV light. Insoles usher in more details as well as they are graced with a code-inspired pattern.

Off-White™ x Air Jordan 2 Low

Release Date: November 12
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: We’ve seen Virgil Abloh put his touch on a plethora of Jordan and Nike models before, but his upcoming Off-White x Air Jordan 2 Low capsule just might be his most adventurous yet. He reworks the classic model with his signature Helvetica branding on the medial side, foamy interior lining and tosses in the usual zip ties, but he takes the shoe to new heights by ushering in a unique pre-crumbled midsole along with Michael Jordan’s signature printed onto the upper. These new elements take the heritage of the sneaker and MJ’s career to a whole new level.

Stüssy x Dr. Martens 939

Release Date: November 12
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: Stüssy and Dr. Martens and
Why You Should Cop: The Fall/Winter time of the year is typically when your thicker coats and boots tend to see more daylight, and this season, Stüssy and Dr. Martens are supplying you with more of the latter in the form of a two-piece collaboration. Two high-cut boots come designed with the streetwear label’s epochal skate-inspired aesthetic that is infused into the British footwear manufacturer’s 939 silhouette. A suede tan option is dropping a more understated all-black variant, both of which are adorned with debossed branding on the collars and BEN soles.

New Balance 990v4 “Heritage”

Release Date: November 12
Release Price: $185 USD
Where to Buy: New Balance
Why You Should Cop: New Balance’s 990 series is arguably the most iconic lineage of the brand’s lifestyle category. It doesn’t get any more classic than a signature grey palette, and that’s exactly what the imprint delivers on this latest 990v4. It’s essentially a recreation of the original in terms of its mesh underlays and suede overlays but it’s modernized with pops of red accents on the “Version 4” tabs near the collars and the customary American flag symbols that adorn the tongues.

Hanon x adidas Originals EQT Race Walk “Working Mens Club”

Release Date: November 12
Release Price: $185 USD
Where to Buy: Hanon
Why You Should Cop: Hanon has chosen to join hands with adidas for a new collaboration that involves the EQT Race Walk. This marks the silhouette’s first return to the market since debuting in 1991, and the Scottish menswear retailer has dressed it up with a palette that’s reminiscent of the interior of a working men’s club. Brown corduroy uppers get paired up with disco-esque accents of blue, orange and pink.

Air Jordan 12 “Royalty”

Release Date: November 13
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: The Air Jordan 12 “Royalty” brings back the overall look and feel of the model’s iconic “Taxi” colorway, but with a more luxe personality. The familiar white leather uppers get paired up with solid black mudguards, but touches of “Metallic Gold” sprinkle onto the hardware, “TWO 3” branding down the tongues and mid-foot overlays, insoles and the heels which spruce up the mid-cut silhouette with a more opulent vibe.

adidas YEEZY Knit Runner Boot “Sulfur”

Release Date: November 13
Release Price: $400 USD
Where to Buy: CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop: With winter quickly encroaching, Ye is looking to supply his fan base with a wide selection of seasonally appropriate footwear, one being the adidas YEEZY Knit Runner Boot that will make its debut in a louder “Sulfur” colorway. The new model essentially bears the same lower half as the YZY KNIT RNR, but with more aggressively-styled, snow-ready treading and a high-cut, khaki-colored collar to form a boot-like shape.

PLEASURES x Crocs

Release Date: November 15
Release Price: $40-70 USD
Where to Buy: PLEASURES
Why You Should Cop: PLEASURES is still looking to hold on onto every ounce of warm weather as it has just officially unveiled its pool-themed collaboration with Crocs. Two of Crocs’ signatures in the All-Terrain Clog and the Classic Slide make an appearance in this capsule, both of which are designed with bold PLEASURES branding and oversized Jibbitz. In case you were on the hunt for some cozy slides to add to your rotation, these just might be the ones for you.
