Let’s face it, 2020 has taken its sweet time coming to an end. Right now it’s last orders for the titans of the crep game and everyone is bringing some much needed heat into the new year and you can see our top Christmas wishlist-worthy trainers from the likes of Nike, Stussy, Jordan and Yeezy below!
3rd December – ‘Varsity Purple’ Nike Dunk High SP
The Varsity Purple colourway of the universally beloved Nike Dunk High started as a Japan exclusive release back in 1999. For the first time this century, the Varsity Dunk is making its much anticipated maiden voyage to the crep capitals of Europe.
The Varsity Purple Dunk will only be released in womens sizes from 2.5 – 9.5 and will be available exclusively through the ‘ Nike SNKRS’ App.
4th December – Jordan 4 ‘Sashiko’
Inspired by the Japanese embroidery style of the same name, the Jordan Saiko is a fresh new interpretation of the Saiko principles of decoration and functionality. The ‘Deep Ocean, Cement Gray & Fire Red’ colourway is dropping December 5th.
When asked about the design, a spokesperson for the Jordan Brand said: “Dressed in a combination of canvas and twill materials assembled in quilt-like patchwork fashion, this take on the Air Jordan IV features beautiful prints and textures inspired by Japanese craftwork and design.”
5th December – Yeezy 350 ‘Bred’ – Re-stock
When looking at the Yeezy saga so far, few creps have earned their place in the hallowed halls of the sneaker hall of fame more than the 350 Bred. Back in February of 2017, everyone had a mate that said they had them despite really buying lookalikes on Amazon.
Since their initial release, Yeezy 350 Breds have continued to be gold dust to collectors. Now that their official re-release date is set for December 5th, sneakerheads can breathe a sigh of relief after almost four years of waiting.
December 11th – Stussy x Air Force 1 ‘Fossil‘
In the final instalment of the recent ‘Nike x Stussy’ collaboration, the two streetwear giants have created a hemp constructed interpretation of the classic Air Force 1. They will be released exclusively through Stussy and will come in both a ‘Fossil’ & black colourway.
December 12th – Jordan 11 ‘Retro Jubilee Anniversary’
This retro inspired interpretation of the much lauded Jordan 11 marks the 25th year since the silhouettes genesis in 1995. Whilst this design may be reminiscent of the Jordan 11 Adapt, its muse was actually a much earlier sketch for the original Jordan 11.
Heritage and history oozes from the sleek blacked-out sides and Jordan-stamped mesh. This classic shoe could travers the basketball courts of the twentieth or twenty first century and look just as cold.
17th December – Air Max 95 ‘Neon’
The fabled return of the Air Max Neon 95 was confirmed by House of Heat at the start of November. This surprising announcement ushered in a flurry of theories and speculation about a rumored reinterpretation of the much beloved design.
However, so far no official design images have been released by Nike, keeping the true nature of the design shrouded in mystery. Many believe that Nike will resurrect the iconic grey and yellow colourway exactly how it was made during its first release 25 years ago.
TBA – Nike Air Max 95 Crater
The classic Air Max 95 silhouette will be the latest member of the Nike roster to adorn the sustainable and eco conscious materials previously seen on the Spacie Hippie & Vapormax 2020’s.
Much like in previous designs, the recycled sole composite radiates bue, green and yellow flex throughout the entire base of the shoe, lending a raw & industrial look to the 95’s.
