Sneaker drop: December 2019

Prada Collision 19

The Italian luxury label is stuck in the future of sneakers. 3D elements sculpt the Prada Collision which sits atop an air-cushioned sole, a nod to Nike’s Air Max technology. Grab your pair now.

Versace Chain Reaction “Jungle Print”

In 2000, Jennifer Lopez shut down the Grammy Awards’ red carpet in a stunning Versace dress and now the dress became one of the best sneakers of the year. Quickly selling out during its initial launch over the summer, it’s back for those who may have missed out. 


Yeezy Slides

You might have the sneakers in various colors as well as the boots. Kanye West now enters the rubberized slides market, inspired by the popularity of Crocs. They arrive in three different colors and are available now for adults, children, and infants alike.


Concepts x Birkenstock

Variety in your footwear rotation is key in the ever expanding space of sneaker culture. Concepts delivers the perfect Birkenstock pair for your holiday needs and beyond as the shoes better with age. 


Nike Dunk Low “Viotech” 2019 Retro

The pioneer of multi-color sneakers that originally released in 2002 is back. Previously worn and made iconic by the late actor Robin Williams, the “Viotech” dunk is a staple for sneakerheads. Get them December 10 at 10 a.m. EST via the Nike SNKRS app before they sell out.


Air Jordan 11 “Bred”

Michael Jordan winning the 1996 NBA Championship with the Bulls began a 23-year-long affinity for the black and red patent leather sneakers. Bred 11s are a holiday tradition, but its original packaging returns for the first time this year. Get your pair on December 14 via the Nike SNKRS app.


Dior Air Jordan 1 

Luxury and sportswear have reached a new high with Kim Jones and Dior teaming up with Michael Jordan. Made of Italian leather, the Air Jordan 1 wears a classic Dior monogram swoosh coupled with translucent soles that read DIOR. If there’s one shoe to add to your special wish list, this is it. Although slated for an April 2020 release, your secret Santa can secure your pair now via StockX.
