The Top Sneaker Drops You Need to Know This Week
A look at this week’s most anticipated sneaker releases
Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike VaporMax 2019
Release Date: May 14
This is the first collaboration between Cactus Plant Flea Market, or CPFM, and Nike, which will usher in future releases from the contemporary streetwear brand. This Vapormax silhouette has been spotted recently on Frank Ocean, Travis Scott and Chase B.
CPFM has introduced 3-D puff lettering, stitched taping, mismatched coloring and a wobbly swoosh (formed with garden wiring), making for a handmade feel. Not to mention, the iconic Nike slogan, “Just Do It,” is created with the letter O as a bright-yellow, four-eyed smiley face. This one is a shoe-in for sneaker of the year.
Nike Air Fear of God Raid (Black)
Release Date: May 17
Jerry Lorenzo and Nike continue their collaborative project with the release of the second colorway of the Air Fear of God Raid. The Nike Air Fear of God Raid takes elements and strong design inspiration from the original 1993 Air Raid outdoor basketball shoe.
In an interview with Nike, Lorenzo spoke about seeing the Air Raid for the first time in high school. “When the kid walked in the classroom with the Air Raid, no one told me that I was supposed to like the Air Raid. I was just drawn to it, the design, the colors. It was like, oh my God, what is that?” Lorenzo recalled. This elevated and luxe sneaker is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Converse All Star Pro BB
Release Date: May 18
Converse is officially returning to basketball. This collaboration uses Converse design and Nike performance innovation. It is a seamless blend of the iconic basketball silhouette (the Chuck Taylor All Star), with minimal construction and maximum benefits.
With many more colorways and rumored exclusive collaborations on the way, be sure to try out the All Star Pro BB.
