The Most Expensive Sneaker This Week
Hitting the market at a $5,000 sale on StockX is the Air Jordan 4 Retro Florida Gators (PE). The Player Exclusive pairs are particularly elite due to their exclusive release to only basketball players. In true March Madness fashion, these sneakers were first released back in 2019 during the March Madness Tournament with the Florida Gators having a rich history with the NCAA. The pair features a blue suede upper with orange and white speckles on the waffle eyelets. Much like Florida Gators players, this AJ 4 has made basketball history.
The Best Sneakers Releasing This Week
A classic silhouette, the Air Jordan 11 is held in high regard as one of the most beloved, coveted Air Jordan numbers. Although the AJ low-cut silhouette might not be a natural gravitation for some sneakerheads, the Cement Grey patent leather makeup is makes this a familiar look to the popular Cool Grey colorway. This release clearly speaks for itself, but some highlight features include the thick rope laces and icy midsoles. These features keep up with the AJ Low traditions that fans know and love.
Get your surfboards ready and head down to the Southern California coast. Stüssy teams up with Converse, marking its third collaboration with the brand. The limited edition Converse x Stüssy Chuck 70 is inspired by the brand’s surf identity with a minimalist flair. Its premium cream colored hemp and studded pearls reference an archival vintage Chucks look and feel. These Chucks are definitely a standout sneaker that’ll make you feel like you’ve found treasure on the beach.
Get lost in another dimension with the new Nike Foamposite One Black and White. This reimagined basketball sneaker gives off a futuristic look and feel with its modernistic and marble-like backdrop. The Foamposite was originally inspired by a beetle and since its 1997 debut, it’s taken many different colorways and shapes. This Dream A World Black colorway adds rippled graphics atop its foam upper. Wear these sneakers and walk in a philosophical state of mind. Located on the insole, you’ll find the quote “luck/success happens when preparation meets opportunity” from Roman philosopher Seneca.
Coming in hot is the newest colorway to the Air Force 1 collection. Much like one of fashion’s leading colors, the Nike Air Force 1 University Red gets a popular, fiery hot red makeup for the season. Red dominates the upper and outsole, while white takes up the branding details. This sneaker has all of the reliably familiar details we trust in the Air Force 1 silhouette with an added touch of heat.
