SNEAKER DROP: DECEMBER 2018
Nike has three launches that couldn’t be left off the list.
RAY POLANCO JR.
Adidas set the benchmark for performance combined with style in 2015 with the UltraBOOST, which went on to become a decade-defining sneaker. Three years later, the original colorway that kicked off the line is back. Get it online December 1 at 10 a.m. EST.
AIR JORDAN XI CONCORD
The most coveted holy grail of sneakers will finally see its first public release and sneakerheads are in a frenzy. The Concord 45 was made in 1995 exclusively for Michael Jordan upon his return to the NBA from retirement. You can finally own a gem from the closet of the greatest basketball player of all time on December 8 at 10 a.m. EST.
COLLEGIUM CLASSIC PILLAR LOW "ORANCIO"
Collegium is known for taking inspiration from sportswear and sneaker culture, then elevating those ideas into luxurious footwear where quality reigns supreme. This particular colorway is a nod to the street cred the ever-popular Hermes bags have obtained. It’s available now at Bloomingdales stores or at CollegiumShoes.com.
Dust off your windbreakers and vibrant track suits for a flashback to the 90s. The Reebok Pyro returns in a white base with berry and highlighter accents, giving off Richard Simmons vibes. Get your pair online on December 6… matching leg warmers and workout tights sold separately.
NIKE AIR FEAR OF GOD 1
Designer Jerry Lorenzo propelled his streetwear label into high fashion, catching the attention of Kanye West, J Balvin, Justin Bieber, and seemingly every NBA player. Now, he’s teaming up with Nike to elevate basketball sneakers. The Nike Air Fear of God 1 is made to perform on the court and the runway. Get your pair on December 15 on the Nike SNKRS app.
GUCCI SCREENER GG SNEAKER
Vintage continues to dominate in fashion and Gucci has its pulse on every trend in the industry. Retro branding, aged soles, and distressed materials makes this tennis shoe chic and comfortable. It’s available online now.
NIKE AIR MAX PLUS OG HYPER BLUE
“The Hyper Blue Air Max Plus has been a certified hit since they dropped in 1998. Twenty years later, they’re the epitome of a classic—they have a defining look, advanced technology, and an eye-popping colorway—that’s stood the test of time. Get it December 22 at Nike.com.” – John Gotty
