This week’s most anticipated drop, the A Ma Maniére Air Jordan 2, has been delayed. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of other sneaker releases to watch out for and heat for the warmer months. So let’s jump right into it.

 

 

Air Jordan 6 “Midnight Navy”

Returning for the first time since 2000, this dark blue hue on the Air Jordan 6 silhouette perfectly balances the white leather and translucent outsole. What makes this release even better is that there will be sizes for the entire family. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: May 11, 2022 (Today)
Retail: $200
Resell pre-release: $210 – $400 (Larger sizes)

 

Nike Dunk Low “Team Red and White”

You all know the drill by now, two colors and the Dunk silhouette equals instant hit and money maker. This deep red and white combination will be no different so go for the easy flip if you’re not a fan of the colorway. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: May 12, 2022
Retail: $100
Resell pre-release: $180 – $250

 

Nike Dunk High “Mantra Orange”

Inspired by the original basketballs used in both the NBA and WNBA, this pair is for the hardcore bball fans. The lateral Swoosh is white while the medial one is black. With the entire upper covered in two shades of orange, throw on a white tee and the kicks will speak for themselves this summer. Hit up select retailer raffles like Extra Butter for a chance to cop.

 

Release Date: May 12, 2022
Retail: $125
Resell pre-release: $135 – $250

 

JJJJound x New Balance Made in USA 990v3 “Brown/Black”

JJJJound has found the formula when it comes to creating high quality New Balance sneakers with instantly popular colorways. More spacious than its v1 and v2 counterparts, the v3 silhouette has become a fan favorite once again in the last few years as NB has made a huge resurgence in the market. With nubuck and mesh bringing together the dark tones perfectly, these are must haves. Hit up jjjjound.com to cop this week and newbalance.com to cop next week (May 18).

 

Release Date: May 12, 2022
Retail: N/A
Resell pre-release: $900 – $1,000

 

Air Jordan 3 “Dark Mocha”

A lot of people are calling this pair the “Neapolitan” and rightfully so because it reminds us of the classic vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream combination. Taking the classic “Mocha” colorway and adding a slightly creamy midsole and pink patch on the outsole and heel really changes up the look. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: May 14, 2022
Retail: $200
Resell pre-release: $215 – $270

 

Air Jordan 11 Low “72-10”

After dropping off a “72-10” colorway on the Air Jordan 11 back in 2015, Jordan Brand is back to celebrate the historic 1995-1996 season when MJ and the Bulls won 72 and only dropped 10. Black patent leather and tumbled leather give the sneaker a feel of luxury like that exotic sports car it draws design cues from. Let the entire family enjoy the good ol’ days with sizes for everyone. SNKRS app and select retailers like Feature will have these.

 

Release Date: May 14, 2022
Retail: $190 (Adults), $135 (Big Kids), $80 (Little Kids), $60 (Toddlers)
Resell pre-release: $210 – $475 (Smaller sizes)

 

adidas YEEZY 500 “Granite”

If grey and black sneakers are your thing, adidas and Ye got you covered this week with a “Granite” iteration of the popular YEEZY 500 model. The adiPRENE outsole doesn’t have BOOST so it’s not as comfortable as other models for me. Hit up CONFIRMED app to try your luck.

 

Release Date: May 14, 2022
Retail: $210
Resell pre-release: $270 – $400

 

CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low “Jade”

CLOT has decided to use the prized jade stone for this Air Jordan 5 collaboration that celebrates mastery. They’ve incorporated jade ornaments with red laces to draw from the original Chinese attire and jewelry. Additionally, the outsole is glow in the dark and MJ’s number 23 is embroidered on the heel panels in Chinese characters. Enter the US raffle through juicestoreusa.com ASAP.
