Best Sneakers This Week
Nike Dunk Low White Black
For the second week in a row, the Nike Dunk Low White Black was the best-selling sneaker on StockX. A series of global restocks and consistent demand has kept this 2021 colorway at the top of the leaderboard, cementing it as a street staple.
Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 White
Following the Nike Dunk Low White Black, the Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 White was also one of the most popular sneakers of the week, which should be no surprise considering it’s the most traded sneaker of all time on StockX.
Most Expensive Sneaker This Week
Nike SB Dunk Low London
Last week, a pair of the Nike SB Dunk Low London sold for just over $17,200, becoming the most expensive sneaker of the week on StockX. Released in 2004 as part of the Nike SB City Pack alongside the renowned Nike SB Dunk Paris and Nike SB Dunk NYC Pigeon, the Nike SB Dunk Low London drew inspiration from London’s cloudy skies and the Thames River. It is said that only 202 pairs exist, making them one of the rarest SB Dunks ever released.
Best Sneakers Releasing This Week
Air Jordan 6 Midnight Navy
For the first time in over 20 years, Jordan Brand brings back the Air Jordan 6 Midnight Navy in its original form.
The Air Jordan 6 Midnight Navy arrives in a white tumbled leather construction with perforated panels and a mesh and black rubber tongue. Being that this colorway debuted as a retro, a Jumpman logo embroidery is featured on the heel instead of the OG Nike Air logo. At the base, a Midnight Navy and white Air midsole atop an icy semi-translucent outsole complete the design.
The Air Jordan 6 Midnight Navy releases on Wednesday, May 11th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.
adidas Yeezy 500 Granite
For the first time this year, Yeezy expands their hiking shoe-inspired 500 line with the adidas Yeezy 500 Granite.
Composed of a brownish-grey mesh, suede, and leather, the adidas Yeezy 500 Granite offers a monochromatic styling similar to the early Yeezy 500s of 2018. Woven lace loops on the tongue nod to the tooling of 1990s hiking boots. From there, a sculptural sole with adiPrene cushioning provides comfort and support.
The adidas Yeezy 500 Granite releases on Saturday, May 14th for $210 on the adidas CONFIRMED app and in select shops.
Similar to last week’s barrage of Nike Dunks, there is a Dunk for everyone in this week’s lineup.
If you are a fan of the traditional two-tone color blocking, the Nike Dunk Low Team Red and women’s Dunk Low Next Nature White Gym Red (W) might be for you. If you are looking for a more luxurious look, the suede and leather Nike Dunk Low Cider exudes richness in both its palette and texture. If you are trying to be more eco-conscious with your next purchase, both the Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Toasty Sequoia and Rift Blue colorways feature a quilted construction made up of 100% recycled polyester.
The Nike Dunk Low Cider and Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Toasty Sequoia release on Monday, May 9th for $110, the Nike Dunk Low Team Red and women’s Nike Dunk Low Next Nature White Gym Red (W) release on Thursday, May 12th for $100 and $105, and the Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Toasty Riftblue releases on Friday, May 13th for $110 on the SNKRS app and in select stores.
New Balance 990v3 JJJJound Brown
New Balance and minimalist extraordinaire JJJJound join forces once again for the New Balance 990v3 JJJJound Brown.
The New Balance 990v3 JJJJound Brown utilizes a tonal earthy palette to emphasize its premium mesh and nubuck construction. Hits of black on the New Balance logo and overlays complement the brown base, while subtle JJJJound logo applications on the insole and heel add a custom feel. Finally, a triple black ENCAP sole adds the finishing touch.
The New Balance 990v3 JJJJound Brown releases on Thursday, May 12th for $250 on the JJJJound website, and on Wednesday, May 18th on the New Balance website.
Air Jordan 3 Dark Mocha (W)
Jordan Brand offers a spin-off of the 2001 Air Jordan 3 Mocha with the women’s exclusive Air Jordan 3 Dark Mocha.
Also referred to as the Jordan 3 “Neopolitan” for its colorway’s resemblance to the popular Italian ice cream, the women’s Air Jordan 3 Dark Mocha features a white tumbled leather upper with Dark Mocha Elephant Print overlays and pale pink eyelets. Next, a TPU heel tab prominently featuring the Jumpman logo adds a retro feel. At the base, a white, pale pink, and brown Air sole ties the look together.
The women’s Air Jordan 3 Dark Mocha (W) releases on Saturday, May 14th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.
Air Jordan 11 Low 72-10
Jordan Brand honors Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls’ historic 72 win 1995-1996 season with the Air Jordan 11 Low 72-10.
The Air Jordan 11 Low 72-10 boasts a black tumbled leather upper with a signature patent leather mudguard and woven lace loops. On the interior, an embroidered tongue tag that reads “Inspired by the most historic season led by the greatest player ever” tributes MJ’s monumental accolade. From there, a semi-translucent sole with red and black carbon fiber detailing completes the design.
The Air Jordan 11 Low 72-10 releases on Saturday, May 14th for $190 on the SNKRS app and in select shops.
