This week of drops features new pairs from Nike celebrating the NBA Playoffs, new models from Adidas and Puma, a ton of exclusives from Jordan Brand, and more.
The round of releases starts on Wednesday with the "Dark 23" Nike LeBron Solider 12 inspired by LeBron's annual social media blackout during the NBA Playoffs. Nike's offerings continue on Thursday with the "Rude Awakening" Air Force 1 High inspired by Rasheed Wallace, the latest pair from the brand's "Art of a Champion" pack, as well as the second colorway of the Acronym x Nike Air VaporMax Moc 2. Also releasing Thursday is five monochromatic pairs of Tyler, the Creator's Golf le Fleur sneaker with Converse One Star that make up the "Mono" pack.
Friday's drops consist of an Air Jordan IX inspired by Carmelo Anthony's 2003 NCAA National Championship with Syracuse and a womens-exclusive Air Foamposite One in a premium "Particle Beige" color scheme.
On Saturday, Adidas and Puma debut new silhouettes, the Kamanda and Thunder Spectra, respectively, New Orleans-based boutique Sneaker Politics drops a special pre-release of the "Katrina" Air Jordan III, Atmos' "Jade" Air Max 95 from its "We Love Nike" pack releases exclusively in Tokyo, and the "Cool Grey" Air Jordan XI Low is also hitting shelves. Finishing off the weekend is another pair from Nike's "Art of a Champion" pack, the "Pass the Torch" Air Jordan I paying homage to Kawhi Leonard's performance in the 2014 NBA Finals.
Two more deliveries from Jordan Brand are also scheduled for early next week. The Air Jordan I Flyknit is releasing in a "Clay Green" color scheme likely inspired by JB's "Best Hand in the Game" pack that consists of four Air Jordan Is and commemorates MJ's career milestones. Two pairs are North American exclusives, while the remaining two will be exclusive to other specific regions around the world.
