GRM Exclusive: Here Are The ‘Top Tier Trainers’ Dropping This November

2 November 2021

Welcome back to our Top Tier Trainers guide, our breakdown of the freshest creps dropping every month!

We may be getting closer to the end of the year but it doesn’t look like the release of cold trainers is stopping any time soon. By the looks of this month, Nike are definitely planning on ending the year on a high-note, but we do also have highlights from the Yeezy brand and Vans.

Take in the Top Tier Trainers dropping this November below!

1st November – Nike Air Force 1 Low Summit White Suede

This month the timeless Air Force 1 model gets a suede revamp in the form of the Nike Air Force 1 Low Summit. These pair of trainers are the epitome of ‘less is more’, with the upper dripped in soft-touch, cream suede throughout alongside a pale pink midsole. The simplicity of the shoe means it can pretty much go with any outfit, making it an all-round shoe.

4th November – Patta x Nike Air Max 1 Noise Aqua

Last month we saw the release of Nike and Patta’s joint Air Max 1 in the ‘Monarch’ colourway and this month we’ll see the release of the trainer in the Aqua CW! Just like with last month’s drop, this trainer comes complete with the wavy pattern above the midsole which gives the shoe a vibrant feel, alongside the eye-catching blue details.

This Nike x Patta collab is one of the most sought-after trainer’s of the year and we can expect the Aqua colourway to fly off the shelves in a similar fashion to the Monarchs in October!

5th November – Nike Dunk High LX Toasty Green Rattan

If you’re looking for some creps to keep your feet cosy in these warm months then look no further than this pair of Nike Dunk High LX’s! The shoe is part of Nike’s ‘Move To Zero’ collection – the brand’s eco-conscious campaign – and is made from a mix of recycled fabrics. To keep your feet warm, the trainer features fleece liner while the green and brown nod to these final autumnal days.

5th November – Air Jordan 4 Retro GS Wild Things

While these autumn/winter days tend to make people draw for the darker items in their wardrobe, the Jordan brand are looking to change that this year with the ‘Wild Things’ Air Jordan 4.

Inspired by the 1963 children’s picture book Where The Wild Things Are, this colourway adds an out-there look to the popular silhouette. With its cream-beige upper, this shoe is predominantly pretty basic but the colourful wings – volt, red, pink and blue – definitely make it an eye-catching number and give the trainer a child-like feel.

Of course, these might not be for everyone but they are Jordan 4s so we can expect these to sell out real quick!

13th November Yeezy 500 Clay Brown

If you missed out on the Clay Brown Yeezy 700’s last year, you can have another go at getting your hands on the colourway with the Yeezy 500’s this year. This number keeps in line with the generally monochromatic nature of Yeezy 500’s, with the different shades of brown giving this particular shoe an earthy feel.

The Yeezy brand had a pretty slow start to 2021 with trainers such as Clay Brown 500 and regular drops, they have definitely redeemed themselves since then.

19th November – sacai x Nike VaporWaffle White Sail

The partnership between Nike and Japanese brand sacai is the gift that keeps on giving and the latest treat to come from the two brands is the ‘White Sail’.

Fusing elements from the Nike VaporFly with the classic Pegasus silhouette, this trainer is another hybrid Nike drop that features a white leather base, off-white suede and leather overlays. A hint of colour is provided by the gum outsole, which carries the layered midsole which has come to define the sacai x Nike partnership.

30th November – A Bathing Ape x Vans Sk8-Hi 38 DX Black

After teaming up last year for a limited-edition collection sold exclusively in China, Vans and A Bathing Ape are reuniting for their debut full-range apparel and footwear collection this month, with a special version of the Sk8-Hi 38 DX silhouettes being part of the collab. The shoe features a custom camo branded label on the tongue – a nod to BAPE’s classic design – alongside a red Waffle outsole to give the shoe a dash of colour.

The Sk8-Hi 38 DX is arguably of the most popular ‘everyday’ trainer so if you’re looking to give your casual looks a bit of a twist, this is the shoe for you.
