This weekend is packed full of brand new releases. Nike is set to deliver a wide array of sneakers in the running and basketball space, while adidas is set to drop its own set of classic silhouettes and new collaborations that should not go unnoticed. New offerings can be expected from Jordan Brand, Converse, and Vans as well.
The drops start this Wednesday. Converse has linked up with Engineered Garments for a four shoe collaboration redesigning the classic Converse One Star, and adidas is debuting the latest Damian Lillard signature model, the Dame 4.
Thursday brings two new casual runners from Nike. A bright new "Citron" colorway of the Flyknit Trainer is releasing alongside a special colorway of the Zoom Fly SP commemorating the 2017 Chicago Marathon.
Vans is releasing a follow-up to its collaborative collection with the classic Peanuts comic strip and cartoon by dropping pairs that feature the artwork of Peanuts' illustrator Charles M. Schulz. Also dropping on Friday are a new navy blue leather colorway of the Nike SF AF-1 featuring a gum outsole, and the third shoe from Nike's "LHM" collection, an Air Force 1 with jaguar print detailing designed by Latin street artist Saner.
One of the biggest releases of the week is the second half of the Kith x Nike "Take Flight" Collection. It includes two pairs of Scottie Pippen's first official signature model, the Air Pippen 1, covered in a premium pony hair. One pair utilizes various animal prints, while the other uses a more toned down all black approach.
Most of the drops this weekend will take place this Saturday. Adidas is continuing its partnership with Reigning Champ with a new collab on the Pure Boost, releasing four new pairs of sneakers designed by Alexander Wang, and also dropping the "Crafted Energy" pack that gives premium uppers to classic models like the Gazelle, Campus, and Forum Hi.
Nike is releasing a Nike Vandal identical the OG pair from the '80s, and John Elliot is giving everyone another chance to get their hands on a pair of his Vandal collab that originally released earlier this year. The Swoosh will also be releasing a purple and white Lakers-esque colorway of the Kobe A.D. Mid, and a set of shoes for the ladies, the WMNS Air Force 1 Upstep "Floral Sequin" pack that uses denim uppers and red sequin floral patches across the uppers.
Jordan Brand's offering this Saturday is one of the best of the week. JB is dropping the second rendition of the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit, this time in the classic "Royal" colorway, as well as a girl's exclusive pair of Air Jordan 3s.
