A great weekend is upon us that is full of hyped and great sneaker releases that any sneakerhead will not want to miss out on.
If you’re a sneaker lover, oh boy do you have a great weekend ahead of you. As the Nike and adidas competition just keeps going we have a classic showdown this week against the two that highlight the weekend but regardless of those two releases, the weekend has shaped up pretty nicely. While the Off-White x Nike Vapor Street silhouettes released today, tomorrow and Saturday play hosts to quite a few releases that you may want to get your hands on.
To begin you have the Nike LeBron 17 Red Carpet dropping that takes on a red velvet upper and a bright red midsole that is actually one of the best colorways we have seen so far from the LeBron 17. We also have the Wood Wood adidas Ultra Boost 19’s releasing in two different colorways, an olive and a cream variant as well as the Pusha T x adidas Ozweego in it’s teal and black color variation.
Nike also has a big weekend planned for the Air Max 90 as the silhouette will be taking on two different colorways, the pink and orange, Platinum Crimson as well as the fall-ready Camowabb. Another addition to the weekend is another release from Nike and Giannis Antetokounmpo as the two will bring basketball fans the Nike Zoom Freak 1 Atmosphere Grey. Other releases include an ASICS GEL-Lyte III OG in Citrus and the Air Jordan 4 Rush Violet for the kiddos that arrives with an animal print theme. As you can tell, the weekend is full of choices to make your mind up on and we haven’t even gotten to out top 3 yet.
#3 – Melody Ehsani x Air Jordan 1 Mid “Fearless”
Arguably the second-most hyped silhouette arriving from the “Fearless” campaign, the Melody Ehsani Air Jordan 1 Mid got the bronze this weekend with its bright colorful leather upper and unique look of a watch adorning the laces. While this is one of the most peculiar looks we have seen this year, Jordan fans have actually grown to like the look and hey it’s 2019, why not? The shoe also arrives with a great story and a message with an inspirational quote on the midsole.
#2 – adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien”
While the release is not confirmed, a surprise drop is expected to go down this Saturday. For many, the 380 is a long-overdue release. Originally expected to be the follow-up to the 350 V2 and be the highly anticipated 350 V3, Kanye had other plans dubbing the silhouette the 380. Although the design is similar, there are many aspects we have never seen before. Ye’ has taken a more organic approach by switching the thick primeknit upper for a thinner one and changing the construction of the iconic midsole completely. The name isn’t by chance as the 380 Alien really isn’t anything we’ve seen before. The new silhouette from adidas and Kanye walks out with the silver this weekend.
#1 – Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 “Fossil”
Ragers as well and sneaker fans have been waiting for this one for a long time and the Fossil AF1 has been given the gold for this weekend. As Travis has been spotted in the pair multiple times over the past year, the hype and demand have never been better for the unique Air Force 1. The multi-material and multi-design upper arrives with different colors, a special Cactus Jack box, and even a removable lace shroud. While the stock is expected to be decently high, these will still be a really hard cop that’ll take a lot of luck to acquire.
