Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara LX “Pink” – December 5th
Simon Porte Jacquemus is world-renowned for his clean and neutral colour palettes, but this season, he’s set to flip the script with the head-turning, eye-catching, traffic-stopping Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara LX “Pink.” His third take on the retro silhouette, this pair definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. As if it wasn’t attention-grabbing enough, the French fashion designer has gone ahead and added metallic gold hardware and a gum rubber outsole for a look that is sure to make headlines.
Bodega x New Balance 9060 “Age Of Discovery” – December 10th
New Balance’s 9060 has got to be one of this year’s best new silhouettes. Fusing the Boston-based brand’s retro aesthetic with a futuristic flair, this unique look is perfectly showcased through the Bodega x New Balance 9060 “Age Of Discovery.” With a breathable mesh base and a luxurious suede construction, the star of the show has got to be the aggressively-sculpted midsole underfoot that’s unlike anything that we’ve seen so far.
eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low “Multicolor” – December 15th
One of the most iconic SB Dunks is making a comeback, but not in the way that you think. Back in 2003, Nike released a special edition pair that was made for charity, nicknamed the “eBay”. Only three pairs were made, with one of them being cut into four sections and put on display. To pay homage to the coveted colourway’s 20th anniversary, the eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low “Multicolor” has been brought back with see-through sections that show where the OG pair was sliced. A must-own for all sneaker collectors, you definitely do not want to miss out.
Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” – December 20th
We honestly can’t believe that we’re actually saying this, but the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” has been officially confirmed. The latest colourway to hit the legendary “Lobster” series, which has seen red, blue, yellow, purple, and green editions over the years, this pair is crafted from an orange leather and suede construction and is packed with crustacean-inspired details throughout, including a textured surface and a rubber band that you can take off or put on as you please.
JJJJound x New Balance 991 “Brown” – December
Justin Saunders is certainly no stranger when it comes to New Balance collabs, but the upcoming JJJJound x New Balance 991 “Brown” might just be his best yet. Outfitted in premium pigskin suede, it’s painted in an earthy selection of brown and tan tones and sits on top of an extra chunky midsole for comfort and cushioning that knows no bounds. A release date has yet to be officially confirmed for the Montreal-based brand’s next NB release, so keep it locked here for everything that you need to know.
