This week, the Nike Flea 1 gets a Grinch-like makeup, washed-denim colors take over the Nike Dunk High sneakers, and the new Nike Air Max Penny gets an All-Star arrangement. Find out which sneaker releases are the most popular, which are the most expensive, and which new adidas, Nikes, and more are coming your way in this latest installment of The Drop List.
The Most Expensive Sneaker This Week
Looks like Halloween 2023 is already underway. The Nike SB Dunk High Jason Voorhees, last sold for $5000, is making noise right after the spooky season. This sneaker is inspired by the serial killer from the Friday the 13th horror franchise. The high-top Dunk is decorated with Deep Red tones and contrasting white inspired by his signature hockey mask. This shoe, though darkened by haunted aesthetics, has a way of surviving top shelf existence all year long.
Best Sneakers Releasing This Week
Hoops meets horticulture. This Nike Flea 1 x Cactus Plant Flea Market uniqueness is the latest silhouette to highlight the festive holidays. This sneaker is cultivated with tufts of synthetic green grass fur that transforms your feet into a garden within seconds. Textured rubber extends onto the upper for a trekked-through-the-mud look, and outdoor inspo keeps growing with moss-covered laces. Does this sneaker remind you of any grumpy goose during Christmas time? Hmm, only one creature comes to mind…
As we prepare for the upcoming joyous occasions, I can’t help but think of sneakers that add some extra holiday flare to any outfit. And the Nike Dunk Low Green Velvet does just that. Made up of the coziest materials, this silhouette is crafted with a luxe-velvet upper in a full tonal look. From the matching velvet Swoosh to the matching shoelaces, this shoe has the perfect amount of monochromatic waves.
NEIGHBORHOOD and adidas have teamed up for another collaboration. The Japanese streetwear brand and German sportswear giant both introduce a Paisley pattern to the new adidas NMD R1 silhouette. Arriving in an artistic bandana-inspired print, the shoe is dressed in a more vintage appeal. The NMD stays consistent with its PRIMEKNIT upper and lateral forefoot midsole plug. It is upgraded with a “NEIGHBORHOOD” branding at the toe.
The latest Nike Dunk High 1985 sneakers have traveled through time, or so it seems. The worn look and feel returns matching the original shape of the ‘85 high top. Sun-washed Enamel Green and Royal Blue denim gives off an Americana flair. Raw-edge detailing and contrast stitching add a free-spirited look to any fit.
The Penny Returns. The new Nike Air Max Penny channels its basketball sneaker roots in this reimagined “All Star” design dating back to 1996. From the jeweled Swoosh to the wing piping on the sides, this sneaker is coveted with details that deliver off-court style.
Editor’s Sneaker Pick of the Week
After a brief hiatus following the renowned Mars Yard series, Nike and Tom Sachs joined forces once again for the NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe.
You have a travel companion for life in the versatile NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe. It’s practical, it’s durable, it’s a design like no other thanks to the incomparable contemporary designer Tom Sachs. What I love most about this shoe is that it’s a minimalist, do-everything kind of shoe. It’s designed to hit the streets and the trails for a city-to-adventure lifestyle.The three-piece moulded cupsole gives it a more comfy feel, while tougher lug patterns grip for the more rocky terrain adventures.
