It’s the holiday season and if you’re celebrating this year, it’s your last chance to grab a gift. Thankfully, our friends at Nike, Jordan Brand, Reebok, New Balance and PUMA have a slew of impending releases for you to dive into for some seasonal shopping. Before we break down every drop to look forward to across the next seven days, let’s go over key headlines from the last week.

Per usual, the feature front is led by Hypebeast’s weekly Sole Mates series. Sitting down with the team, this week’s guest was Indonesian rock star Armand Maulana, who selected the Travis Scott x fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High and chatted about everything from bringing his band into the world of sneakers to his rules for collecting.

On the news side of things, our Nike coverage revolved around one common element — the Nike Kobe line. First looks at two new Nike Kobe 4 Protros came in — featuring the “Bicoastal” and “Philly” colorways — while the official breakdown of the “Black Mamba” pair was shared as well. Previews of both the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Italian Camo” and Kobe 8 Protro “Radiant Emerald” touched down too.

Looking to team Jumpman, word of a Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Canary” arriving next year caught fans by surprise. Detailed glances at both the Air Jordan 3 “Green Glow” and Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” also surfaced while Sotheby’s announced an auction for a signed pair of the Eminem x Air Jordan 4 “Encore.” Wrapping up the week, sock sneakers were all the rage with both Balenciaga and Ye revealing and releasing their own versions respectively.

Now that you’re up to speed with the latest and greatest happenings in the footwear space, let’s go ahead and dive into this week’s top drops. After you finish reviewing the top ten, don’t forget to hit up HBX to shop styles that are available to purchase now.

Cactus Jack x Nike Attack

Release Date: December 19
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: In the wake of a viral “leaked” video of Travis Scott and John McEnroe debating over whether or not to call this shoe the “Cactus Mac,” it’s finally time for Scott to drop his reverse Swoosh-equipped take of the Nike Attack. Revisiting the OG “Light Smoke Grey” colorway that re-released earlier this year with the silhouette’s return to the market, Scott has included his typical twists of the lateral reverse Swoosh and Cactus Jack stamp at the heel.

Nike LeBron 21 “Conchiolin”

Release Date: December 19
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Earlier this month, LeBron James returned to his throne by winning the first-ever NBA In-Season Tournament with the Los Angeles Lakers. While the 38-year-old veteran continues to make noise on the court, his Nike LeBron 21 is similarly succeeding off the court. Its latest “Conchiolin” look builds upon the shoe’s “protecting the pearl” theme of acting as a shell around one’s foot. Its mostly-white build utilizes a pearlescent finish that is sure to shine when hooping.

New Balance Warped Runner “Dark Mushroom”

Release Date: December 20
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: New Balance
Why You Should Cop: Debuting on the runway this year, New Balance’s Warped Runner is the brand’s newest lifestyle silhouette to hit shelves. While many are still awaiting the arrival of AURALEE’s take on the shoe, a “Dark Mushroom” iteration serves as a fall-ready flavor with its dark brown and black combination. Combining a mesh base with hairy suede overlays, its uniquely-sculpted structure stands out once again.

Nike Lunar Roam “Alabaster”

Release Date: December 20
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: It’s been 15 years since the Swoosh first introduced its lightweight Lunar technology. Now, the brand is utilizing the plush cushioning in a new way with the Lunar Roam silhouette. Its sizable sole unit features a ribbed midsole in a golden yellow that darkens towards the heel before transitioning to black at the rear. Its textile upper features off-white, forest green and brown hues in this statement-making “Alabaster” colorway.

Air Jordan 14 “Black/White”

Release Date: December 20
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Rounding out Michael Jordan’s list of Air Jordans worn while playing for the Chicago Bulls, the Air Jordan 14 is in its 25th year and continues to see new looks. For 2023, its relatively-quiet year is being rounded out by the release of this “Black/White” look that leans heavily on the former with its black suede reaching across the retro upper. White branding hits are joined by matching accents at the midsole to offer a versatile finish.

Off-White™ x Nike Air Terra Forma

Release Date: December 21
Release Price: $210 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: For the second year in a row, December 21 sees the release of two new Off-White™ x Nike Air Terra Forma colorways. Once again, the ‘80s and ‘90s-inspired silhouette sees a spike-covered midsole combine with translucent Swooshes, a multicolored tongue and Off-White™’s signature zip tie element. The two looks include “Mantra Orange” and “Matte Olive” arrangements, with each utilizing significant levels of colorful contrast at the tongue and sole unit.

Happy99 x Reebok Instapump Fury 95

Release Date: December 22
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: Reebok
Why You Should Cop: Five years ago, designers Nathalie Nguyen and Dominic Lopez began their journey with Happy99 by sharing a footwear design on Instagram. This week, concept turns to reality with the release of the Happy99 x Reebok Instapump Fury 95. Drawing from gaming and anime, the two glossy colorways are equipped with playful graphics on both the shoe and its removable ripstop gaiter.

Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v4 “Belly”

Release Date: December 22
Release Price: $220 USD
Where to Buy: New Balance
Why You Should Cop: In case you missed out on last week’s drop, the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v4 “Belly” collection is returning to shelves for a second opportunity to purchase. While the blue “Keisha” colorway is not set to be available, the “Intro” and “Outro” pairs are ready to return. The former utilizes a mostly-marshmallow white finish with black detailing while its “Outro” counterpart flips the flow by offering black across the shoe with bits of contrast in white.

Dexter’s Laboratory x PUMA MB.03

Release Date: December 22
Release Price: $135 USD
Where to Buy: PUMA
Why You Should Cop: It’s a big month for cartoon-based sneaker collaborations with LaMelo Ball and PUMA connecting with Dexter’s Laboratory for an out-of-this-world take on the MB.03. If you’re looking to stand out on your local basketball court, this is the pair for you as fluorescent hues combine with wild patterns for an eye-catching finish that matches Ball’s energy when he’s at his best.

Air Jordan 1 High OG “Celadon”

Release Date: December 23
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: With less than 10 days left in the year, Jordan Brand is rounding out its range of retro release with yet another Air Jordan 1 High. Introducing the new “Celadon” colorway, a combination of off-white, orange and green comes together for a tropical flavor. Constructed of tumbled leather and supple suede at the upper, it notably features contrast stitching across its orange Swooshes.
