This weekend, it's all about themed packs as many of the major brands have special collections lined up.
For starters, Jordan Brand will drop its Air Jordan VII Retro "Cigar & Champagne" pack. Composed of two colorways, this is a natural follow up to 2014's Air Jordan VI pack, however an online release is unlikely. Likewise, for the latest Air Jordan 1 "Pinnacle," which will hit select retailers in a shimmering all-white colorway.
Nike has its share of packs up its sleeve, too, with two NikeLab Roshe Cortez's and a pair of O.G. Air Presto colorways dropping over the weekend. It'll also launch the "What The" KD7 and the much anticipated "Gone Fishing" Foamposite One.
Ronnie Fieg will celebrate his 20th year in the game with a special three-way collab between himself, Diamond Supply Co., and ASICS. It's composed of two ASICS retro silhouettes and plenty of themed apparel.
Rounding out the weekend is a country club-ready collection from Extra Butter and Sperry, the return of a retro runner from Karhu courtesy of Boston's Concepts, and more. Hit the jump for A Complete Guide to This Weekend's Sneaker Releases.
