We love sneakers. From the latest collaborations to retro kicks that bring you back to your first pair, we know that feeling when you open the box and inhale that brand-new smell. So we’re rounding up the best and most highly anticipated sneakers every week. Let’s get started.

 

The decade is coming to an end, and brands are dropping some amazing colorways, ending 2019 on a high note. Nike goes back into the vault for some Christmas-themed kicks that will re-release for the first time. On the other side of the spectrum, Yeezy and Adidas are celebrating the holidays with an all-new colorway of its famous Yeezy Boost 350 v2. Jordan Brand even shows some teeth with its upcoming, wild Air Jordan 3. What’s a release guide without some Virgil and OFF-WHITE? The streetwear goliaths come together to modify a classic silhouette. 

 

Take a look at the upcoming release that’ll keep you laced until 2020. See you next year.

Nearly a decade after its first release, LeBron James’s seventh signature shoe is hitting retailers again. The Nike LeBron 7 was immortalized for making high-performance basketball shoes an integral player in street and lifestyle wear. The silhouette sits atop of a full-length Air Max unit for total comfort and cushioning.

Tinker Hatfield's iconic design from 1988 gets a wild look before the end of the decade. At first glance, the shoe looks like the classic Black Cement colorway that captured the hearts of sneakerheads. However, Jordan Brand swaps in an exotic upper with animal print accents across the toe box, heel and the collar of the shoe. Welcome to the jungle.

Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE and Nike come together one more time as Abloh continues to revamp staple silhouettes. This time, Abloh reinvents the Dunk Low and with fresh hues. The Pine Green, University Red and University Gold/Midnight Navy colorways complete the trifecta for the final OFF-WHITE x Nike drop of the decade. With the Dunk Low coming back to reclaim its throne in streetwear, Aboh gives the sneaker an elevated co-sign, making it a must-have for hypebeasts and Dunk fanatics.
