November has begun and the holiday season is officially rolling out as themed product and advertisements continue to rapidly appear. Capitalizing on the gift giving time of year, footwear brands including Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, Reebok, Dr. Martens, Salomon and Crocs have all prepared releases to consider picking up. Before we dive into the top drops of the week, let’s go over what headlines hit the sneaker industry in the last seven days.

Starting with features, the latest weekly edition of Sole Mates launched — featuring Antonio Ciongoli and the Mephisto Rainbow. The 18 East founder shared his love for Mephisto while also touching on the importance of creating designs that don’t have a “shelf life” and how skate culture influences his creative process.

Pivoting to the standard slate of news, anticipation for Nike’s forthcoming “Year of the Dragon” collection continues to build as looks at thematic takes on the Air Force 1 Low and KD 4 both appeared. The Swoosh also looked to the weatherproof Air Max 90 GORE-TEX to don the silhouette’s classic “Infrared” colorway once again.

As for Jordan Brand, official breakdowns of both the Air Jordan 4 Craft “Medium Olive” and Air Jordan 3 “Off Noir” were shared. Elsewhere, A Ma Maniére officially unveiled its “Dusk” and “Dawn” takes on the Air Jordan 5 alongside complementary apparel options while rumors surrounding a Paris Saint-Germain x Air Jordan 1 Low OG for 2024 popped up.

As for the rest of the sneaker industry, collaborations continue to capture the attention of the masses with first looks arriving for two GALLERY DEPT. x Vans Rowley XLT LX colorways, a Dexter’s Laboratory-themed PUMA MB.03 and a Prada x adidas by Jerry Lorenzo teaser.

Now that you’re up to speed with the latest and greatest from the sneaker space, let’s go ahead and gear up for this week’s top releases. Once you’ve reviewed what to expect from the next seven days, be sure to slide by HBX to shop styles that are available for purchase now.

A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Geo Forma Boot “Black”

Release Date: November 7
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: Converse
Why You Should Cop: Dr. Samuel Ross and his label A-COLD-WALL* have combined their progressive design language with Converse in many different ways since first teaming up in 2020. At the end of last year, the duo introduced the Geo Forma Boot — a sleek boot geared for winter. Its initial looks donned eye-catching color combinations but for 2023, the two have opted for a slick all-black that emphasizes its unique shape.

Wales Bonner x adidas Samba

Release Date: November 8
Release Price: $180 USD to $220 USD
Where to Buy: adidas
Why You Should Cop: adidas can thank Grace Wales Bonner and her eponymous label for skyrocketing the Samba to all-new heights in popularity across recent years. Various collaborations between the two parties on the retro football silhouette have served as some of the most popular fashion-oriented sneaker releases to date. Up next, four colorways have been prepared in looks that range from a maroon nylon to a leopard print-covered pony hair.

PHILEO x Salomon XT-SP1

Release Date: November 9
Release Price: $305 USD
Where to Buy: Salomon
Why You Should Cop: 21-year-old Parisian designer Philéo Landowski has spared no time in making a name for himself in fashion. Establishing his own footwear brand — PHILEO — in 2019, Landowski has continued to break down barriers as one of the scene’s rising stars. Now, after aiding Salomon Sportstyle in designing its first proper sneaker, Landowski’s label has its very own collaboration with Salomon. Introducing his two looks on the XT-SP1, the juxtaposition of the purity of nature and harshness of urban life serve as both pairs’ inspiration. Crafted in pink and black colorways, the shoe is packed with special detailing ranging from a soft knit upper to a rugged outsole.

Salehe Bembury x Crocs Pollex Clog “Yoke”

Release Date: November 9
Release Price: $85 USD
Where to Buy: Spunge
Why You Should Cop: While Crocs continues to pump out one viral collaboration after another, Salehe Bembury leads the charge for its more “serious” footwear offerings. Leading the Crocs Pollex Pod division, Bembury’s Pollex Clogs continue to attract sneakerheads thanks to its straightforward colorways and unique shape. Adding to the silhouette’s color palette, a new “Yoke” finish sees yellow spread across the slip-on.

Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Varsity Maize”

Release Date: November 9
Release Price: $205 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Off-White™ and Nike have established a powerhouse partnership as their creations include some of the most celebrated sneakers of the century. While the duo’s Air Force 1 Mids aren’t nearly as popular as their Air Force 1 Lows, the series is not to be overlooked. Starring in a white and yellow “Varsity Maize,” it again features everything from a spiked sole unit to a Flywire cable system, not to mention the inclusion of Off-White™’s signature zip-tie as well.

Alpha Industries x Dr. Martens

Release Date: November 9
Release Price: $180 USD to $200 USD
Where to Buy: Dr. Martens
Why You Should Cop: Alpha Industries and Dr. Martens are two brands with storied histories. Celebrating this, the duo has combined to create two boots that look back to each label’s origins. Utilizing the 1460 Ben Boot in olive green and the Tarik Boot in black, special “Alpha” versions have been created. Both looks utilize Alpha Industries’ instantly-recognizable red pull tab at the boot’s nylon pocket detail and at the heel.

Air Jordan 5 “Midnight Navy”

Release Date: November 10
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Jordan Brand has treated the Air Jordan 5 to a standout year as it has been outfitted in one fresh look after another. This month, the Jumpman team is taking it to the next level with the release of not only this much-anticipated “Midnight Navy” colorway, but with the debut of A Ma Maniére’s collaboration as well. Before we dive into that project next week, the aforementioned blue pair dons a premium suede that combines with a light gray at the TPU cage and an icy translucent outsole for a clean finish.

Tyrrell Winston x Reebok Classic Leather & Club C 85

Release Date: November 10
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: Tyrrell Winston
Why You Should Cop: Brooklyn-based artist Tyrrell Winston has reconnected with Reebok to offer minimalist takes on the Classic Leather and Club C 85. Both favor blank lateral windows, removing the Reebok branding while adding his signature at the heel. The two white colorways feature Winston’s logo at the tongue in silver and navy respectively.

Air Jordan 11 “Neapolitan”

Release Date: November 11
Release Price: $225 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: What better day for an Air Jordan 11 to release than 11/11? Ahead of the silhouette’s return to its “DMP”-inspired look in December, a special “Neapolitan” makeover has been crafted in women’s sizing. It similarly draws from the aforementioned white and black color blocking as its leather upper combines white and an almost-black “Velvet Brown.” From there, “Sail” hits the midsole, resting atop a sweet pink “Atmosphere” outsole.

TIGHTBOOTH x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro

Release Date: November 11
Release Price: $135 USD
Where to Buy: Select Skate Shops
Why You Should Cop: Professional skater Shinpei Ueno has found ways to contribute to the streetwear scene via his label TIGHTBOOTH. Teaming up with Nike SB, the veteran athlete’s brand has reworked the SB Dunk Low Pro — adding white leather overlays that feature a texture inspired by metal grates found when skateboarding. Reflective Swooshes enable use at any time of day while pops of orange add additional contrast.
