What a weekend we have ahead of us. It’s packed chock-full of fire jawnz, and there’s something for everyone, from dope runner collabs to more heat from Adidas (what’s new?) to a clean, simple Jordan. With all that heat releasing, you already know what time it is: time for another edition of Top 5 Sneaker Releases This Weekend. Let’s get it.
5. Nike Flyknit Racer “Pure Platinum”-Today, $150
Although the heyday of the Flyknit racer has passed, it’s still a great shoe, and when it drops in a clean tonal color like the “Pure Platinum” jawns, we’re all about it. You can either wear these all fall (the light grey will work wonders with your fit if you don’t mind being a little cold), or put em’ on ice till next summer. Either way, you’ll be winning.
4. Jordan III “Cyber Monday”-Saturday, $190
Although we like to get on Jordan Brand’s case for recycling the same ideas over and over and just flat-out not innovating anymore, we’ve got to say: sometimes a recycled idea works … and in the case of the “Cyber Monday” colorway, it works wonderfully. A simple, easy-to-wear pair of III’s like these (check that rhyme) will always be a winner in our book.
3. Adidas NMD R1 “Craftsmanship Pack”-Saturday, $N/A
These are a Europe-only release, so we won’t be getting our hands on them … but they’re still way too fye to leave off the list. The NMD is the most juiced shoe in the whole sneaker game right now, and this colorway is a fine addition to the lineup. We’ll save you the “tonal” and “great fall color” spiel this time as these shoes really speak for themselves.
2. Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 997.5 Mykonos Collection “Cyclades”-Today, $240
As much as we loved the friends and family “Archipelago” colorway (that navy though!), the “Cyclades” is the pair from the pack that’s got to take the spot on this list. Pigskin suede, details inspired by a day on the beach, and 5 different pairs of laces plus a pair of socks with the shoe all add up to another classic (and super-killer) New Balance release from Ronnie.
1. Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 “Light Brown”-Saturday, $350
Could any other shoe really take the #1 spot? The “Light Brown” Yeezy 750 Boost is yet another home run from Kanye and Adidas. Although they’ll likely never surpass the popularity of the 35o Boost, the 750 has been gaining some momentum recently, and these “Light Brown” jawns should continue to push that forwards. Get ready to take a big L on these this weekend though … if you don’t have a lightning-fast bot, you’re probably not getting a pair.
