November Shoe Releases

There may only be two months left in the year, but there are still plenty of marquee footwear releases to get to in that short amount of time, particularly in November.

Picking up right where we left off in October, this month, there’s pretty much a shoe for every sport on the sneaker calendar. From golf, to running, to basketball, footwear brands have brought their A-game to the table, leading us to believe November could very well be the best sneaker month of 2013. Check out the 10 performance sneakers we’re looking forward to this month. You might even be surprised to see which shoe is holding down the No. 1 spot.

No. 10 - Saucony Triumph 11

Release date: November 2013

With so many great running shoes offered up by Saucony, the Triumph series tends to fly somewhat under the radar. But if you happened to catch any of the previous 10 versions, particularly the Triumph 10, then you know exactly why we're excited for the next generation of the lightweight neutral runner. While the upgrades to the Triumph 11 are fairly minimal, the shoe does feature reconstructed overlays for improved support, as well as deeper grooves on the crash pad for a more flexible and natural strike.

No. 9 - Nike Lunar Embellish

Release date: November 1, 2013

If the Nike Lunar Embellish sounds familiar it's because the shoe is the successor to the the long-running Air Embellish model. Weighing in nearly two whole ounces lighter than the Air Embellish, this women's specific golf shoe features the addition of a Lunarlon midsole for improved cushioning. It also features a more streamlined upper, though Nike has carried over the interchangeable midfoot saddle from the previous version for some versatility in the aesthetics department.

No. 8 - Mizuno Wave Creation 15

Release date: November 2013

Mizuno has come out swinging this Fall as far as sneaker drops go, particularly over the past few weeks. But in case the release of some high profile models such as the Wave Sayonara and Wave Prophecy 3 failed to satisfy your Mizuno fix, the brand has another worthy candidate on the way this month—the Wave Creation 15. Building upon the profound success of the versatile neutral support shoe, the next Wave Creation will feature a new-look upper that's more abstract in design. The Wave Creation 15 also features tweaked overlays and more flex grooves under the forefoot for improved forward propulsion.

No. 7 - New Balance 890v4

Release date:

After rolling out a special Brooklyn-inspired version of the 890v4 ahead of this weekend's 2013 ING New York City Marathon, New Balance will release the standard version of the popular neutral trainer this month. While changes on the upper are fairly minimal, the 890v4 features a drastic design change on the sole. Instead of the traditional design seen on the previous version, the 890v4 features a more substantial midsole/outsole combo complete with spaced out oversized rubber pods for improved flex and stability.

No. 6 - Reebok Q96

Release date: November 1, 2013

Allen Iverson may have retired from the game, but Reebok is still going strong when it comes to shoes for the hardwood. Just in time for the current season, Reebok has introduced a heritage inspired performance basketball collection, which includes the Q96 (seen above), and the Pumpspective Omni. While both models are worth of some game time minutes, the Q96 features a clean design that's certainly got our attention.

No. 5 - Nike Air Max 2014

Release date: November 18, 2013

While the official release date of the Nike Air Max 2014 won't arrive until later in December, the next generation Air Max running shoe will be available for customization on NIKEiD starting November 18. That means you can get your feet into a pair early, AND get a chance to add your personal flair to it. Time to get excited.

No. 4 - Nike "Savile Row" Zoom Vapor 9 Tour LE

Release date: November 4, 2013

Roger Federer has been repping the Swoosh on tour for quite some time now, and given that he even has his own sub-brand, it’s fair to say Nike takes pretty good care of their ace (pun intended). Case in point: the "Savile Row" Zoom Vapor 9 Tour LE. Inspired by Roger's extraordinary style both on and off the court, the "Savile Row" version of his go-to shoe blends the absolute best in both aesthetics and performance. It literally looks like a dress shoe infused with a tennis sneaker. Needless to say, we want, nay need, a pair.

$160

No. 3 - Nike LeBron 11 "Away"

Release date: November 1, 2013

After making its on-court debut on the feet of King James a couple of nights ago, the Nike LeBron 11 "Away" will be available for all us mere mortals to hoop in this month. Clad in a vivid Heat Red coat of armor, the LeBron 11 "Away" is highlighted by Nike's new Hyperposite technology, which, in a nutshell, is basically a blend of the pre-existing Hyperfuse and Foamposite technologies. This shoe is hot.

No. 2 - Asics Gel-Kayano 20th Anniversary Two Pack

Release date: November 1, 2013

Dear Asics: To start off, we want to congratulate you on the 20 years of success with the iconic Gel-Kayano series. Secondly, great call on the 20th Anniversary Two Pack—it looks dope!

$300

No. 1 - adidas Supernova Glide Boost

Release date: November 3, 2013

adidas added its revolutionary Boost technology to a series of high performance running shoes in 2013, but it looks like it saved the best for last in the Supernova Glide Boost. Making its official debut just yesterday at the New York City Marathon Expo, the Supernova Glide Boost is a hell of a good looking shoe that will leave you foaming at the mouth. Along with the high energy return Boost midsole, the Supernova Glide features a redesigned upper that fits better and looks to be more durable than the TechFit upper on other Boost-enabled sneakers. This one could very well take the crown for the best running shoe of the year.

$130
