In 1991, the Nike Huarache line was born, thanks to Tinker Hatfield and his innovations that broke the mold for running shoes. Nearly three decades since its release, Nike’s newest technology clashes with the classic. The self-lacing Adapt technology makes its way onto a second colorway of the Huarache, as Nike expands its futuristic technology.

The Air Jordan 11 is renowned for bringing elegance to the hardwood, and in an unprecedented fashion. Fit for a king, or in this case his Airness, the Air Jordan 11 captured the hearts of sneakerheads and basketball historians, as the silhouette would reignite Micahel Jordan’s legacy at the start of his second, three-peat championship run. For the fourth time in its history, the AJ 11 in black and red will release with its original high patent leather cut, 23 engraved in the back and its vintage Nike box from the late ’90s.

The Adidas Yeezy 500 adds a few inches to its regular, low-top construction. Dipped in neutral tones and a white midsole and outsole combination, the boot-like Yeezy is perfect for the winter as Kanye and Adidas continue their “Yeezys for all” pledge. As busy as Kanye and The Three stripes have been in 2019, the Adidas Yeezy 500 High is the perfect momentum booster that the brand needs for 2020.
