2020 is coming to a close and while the weather may be getting colder the sneaker game is heating up.
Nike SB Dunk Low "Elephant"
If you missed the release of the Atmos Air Max 1, which I'm sure you did, this may be your next shot to get something close. Another Dunk big hitter coming out in the year of the Dunk. Wrapped in the popular elephant print with that teal Nike Swoosh. Make sure to set your alarms early to get a shot at these. Also, pick up your favorite tissues for the tears you'll shed when these sell out in seconds.
Nike Air Max 90 "Infrared"
Nike showing a ton of love for the 30th anniversary of the Air Max 90. Bringing back the ever loved "Infrared" colorway. While this colorway has been done plenty of times on plenty of Air Maxs, this one will be that extra special. It is been heard that this years release will be as close as possible to the very first time this colorway was released.
New Balance x Levi 327
Levi is collaborating with New Balance to bring three colorways to the 327 model. There will be two men's with one women's release. One of the men's colorway is a simple tan look and the other two colorways are... interesting. The other men's colorway and the women's colorway will have a split down the middle look. The mens giving a split of rich blue denim and a quiet tan. The women's has a much subtler take on this split look. The shoe is mainly white with a split of light blue and white. The 327 is a win for a shoe, but this collab might be a lose.
Nike SB x Concepts Dunk High "Turdunken"
Concepts is at it again with a wild idea that came together so well. Oh yeah, and it comes with all sorts of goodies for you collectors. While it is being called the "Turdunken" it is giving only duck vibes and not so much on the turkey or chicken, and that's okay. This shoe sports the shimmery look of a mallard and material to resemble feathers of a duck. The inside is reminding me of my parrain's camp from the 90s. There will of course be a special box that comes with things you'd expect but the big ticket item is the turkey inspired NERF football.
Sacai x Nike "Vaporwaffle"
Sacai is really leaning into this two shows in one more and more. There will be a black and white colorway and a sail colorway. The Nike Swooshes are even more distinct that they are separate, multiple laces at once, and now hugely protruding sole from the heel with a large gap at the end. If you want to say you started a wave with new and interesting shoes... this is the one you want in your collection.
