Best Sneakers This Week

best new sneakers releasing air jordan 1 patent bred

Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred

After a five-week reign, the Jordan 11 Cool Grey is no longer the most sold sneaker of the week. Now, Air Jordan 1 Patent Bred has claimed the top spot following its shock drop and monster debut. With ties to the OG Air Jordan 1 and its “banned” backstory, it’s understandable why the Patent Bred have garnered the utmost demand.

Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey

Just because the Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey has fallen from the top spot doesn’t mean it isn’t one of the most popular sneakers. The Cool Grey is still dominating the market and on its way to becoming the most sold Jordan in StockX history.

Most Expensive Sneaker This Week

Nike SB Dunk High Supreme Blue Stars

Last week, the Nike SB Dunk High Supreme Blue Stars reached a historic high, reaching a resale price of $10,000. This model is one of the most coveted SB Dunk Highs of all time, and the inspiration behind the latest collaboration between Nike and Supreme, which has become the most expensive SB Dunk of 2021

adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint

Yeezy is bringing back a beloved Yeezy 350 V2 colorway with the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint.

Like the original design that was released in 2017, the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint features a marbled grey Primeknit upper with a side stripe that bears red “SPLY-350” text. At the Boost sole and collar, subtle hits of blue provide an explanation for the design’s “blue tint” name.

The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint re-releases on Saturday, January 22nd for $220 on the adidas CONFIRMED app and in select retailers.

adidas Yeezy 500 Blush

Alongside the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint, the adidas Yeezy 500 Blush is also receiving a global restock.

With a pale pink monochromatic palette, the adidas Yeezy 500 Blush gives off a springtime vibe despite the fact that we are heading into the middle of winter. Its hiking-inspired suede and mesh construction are durable enough for the trails and also versatile enough for daily wear. From there, a sculptural adiPRENE sole adds the finishing touch.

Nike LeBron 9 South Coast

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Nike LeBron 9, Nike offers a new Miami-inspired colorway with the Nike LeBron 9 South Coast.

Much like the renowned LeBron 8 South Beach, the Nike LeBron 9 South Coast draws inspiration from fixtures of Miami nightlife. But instead of a design smothered in bright blue like the South Beach, the South Coast opts for a more subtle black and blue palette with neon hues scattered throughout its mesh upper. Palm tree graphics on the shoe’s lining nod to Miami’s beachscape. At the base, Air Max cushioning contributes responsiveness and support.

The Nike LeBron 9 South Coast releases on Thursday, January 20th for $210 on the SNKRS app and in select Nike retailers.

BAPE x Reebok

In BAPE and Reebok’s latest collaboration, BAPE leaves its unmistakable mark on some of Reebok’s most well-known silhouettes.

If you are familiar with BAPE’s catalog, you should be familiar with its colorful APE camouflage patterns. On this latest collaboration on the Reebok Instapump Fury BAPE, the signature APE camo is on full display as each panel on the upper takes on a different color camouflage. On this Reebok Club C, the hues that are prominent on the Instapump Fury are present in the form of contrast stitching, adding flair to its sleek white leather construction.

The latest BAPE x Reebok collaboration releases on Friday, January 21st for $150 and $200 on the Reebok website.

Reebok Answer IV The Tunnel

Reebok pays homage to one of Allen Iverson’s most well-known pre-game outfits from the 2001 NBA Finals with the Reebok Answer IV The Tunnel.

Before NBA pre-game outfits were popularized, Allen Iverson was making headlines for his NBA dress code offending attire, especially when he wore a custom Eagles jersey and matching du-rag before the NBA Finals. Featuring bold white and dark green color blocking, the Reebok Answer IV The Tunnel would have served as the perfect complement to AI’s fit. If only he had a pair back then.

The Reebok Answer IV EThe Tunnel releases on Friday, January 21st for $150 on the Reebok website and in select stores.
