It’s finally Thanksgiving weekend and we’re ready to hit the checkout buttons on various sneaker releases just like you are. Collaborations are proving to still be king so get ready to spend all the money you’ve been saving. Let’s jump right into it.
A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1
A Ma Maniére already has arguably the best collaboration of the year with their Air Jordan 3 from June. Now, the brand continues to tell stories inspired by the daily struggles and successes of Black communities across America with the AJ1 silhouette. “The A Ma Maniére Air Jordan 1 is a symbol of resilience in the face of adversity and a testament to the power of unity” the brand says. With cracked leather uppers and snakeskin details and a quilted liner, these go super hard and are a must this weekend. A Ma Maniére will release pairs on their website first at 11am EST on a FCFS basis. SNKRS app will launch the shoes on December 3.
Release Date: November 24, 2021 (Today)
Resell pre-release: $445 – $920
Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Night Maroon”
The third installment from Patta’s “The Wave” collection will hit SNKRS app this week. With orange and aqua versions serving as its predecessors, this colorway gets rid of all the white uppers in exchange for premium leather and plenty of maroon hits on the underlays and overlays. The mini Swoosh is retained and a light grey mesh toe box and creamy distressed midsole give it a worn-in look. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.
Release Date: November 24, 2021 (Today)
Resell pre-release: $210 – $340
Supreme x Vans Fall 2021 Half Cab & Old Skool
Supreme and Vans reunite for a Fall 2021 collection after giving us a collaborative “S Logo” capsule back in June. For this season’s release, the duo have chosen to add some barbed wire onto the outsoles of the Half Cab and Old Skool models. Both sneaker models feature premium suede uppers while the Old Skool also incorporates some canvas in. A debossed Supreme logo is on the heel of the Old Skool as well. Each silhouette will have three distinct colors releasing. Hit up supremenewyork.com and in-store to purchase. This week’s releases will happen on Friday because Thanksgiving is on Thursday.
Release Date: November 26, 2021 (US, Europe), November 27, 2021 (Japan)

adidas YEEZY 500 “Clay Brown”
Release earlier this year, the adidas YEEZY 500 “Clay Brown” will make a restock return at select retailers this weekend. The perfect shade of brown for post-Thanksgiving shopping — since the leaves have all turned by now — you can depend on this proven combination of suede, leather and mesh to get you where you need to go. Hit up select retailers like Extra Butter to catch this restock.
Release Date: November 26, 2021
Resell pre-release: $210 – $305
KAWS x sacai x Nike Blazer Low “Neptune Blue” & “Team Red”
The highly anticipated KAWS collaboration with sacai and Nike will finally start to release this weekend. The Brooklyn-based artist’s incredibly bright color palette and “XX” motif transfer beautifully onto the Chitose Abe version of the Blazer Low. The “XX” is actually lasered into the front of the midsole right underneath the toe box and the double exposed tongues feature Nike branding in different fonts. KAWS will release the pairs first on kawsone.com along with sacai stores, followed by a SNKRS app release for both the “Neptune Blue” and “Team Red” pairs.
Release Date: November 26, 2021 (KAWSONE, sacai), November 27, 2021 (SNKRS)
Resell pre-release: $270 – $430 (Neptune Blue), $300 – $785 (Team Red)
adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 “Fade Azure”
adidas continues its steady stream of YEEZY BOOST 700 releases with the “Fade Azure” pair this weekend. Filled with multiple shades of blue — turquoise, azure, prussian (like my attempt at trying to name colors like Ye?) — this vibrant colorway is not for the faint of heart. Probably best reserved for those getaways to the beach we’re already looking forward to, hit up CONFIRMED app and select retailers to cop.
Release Date: November 27, 2021
Resell pre-release: $310 – $450
Air Jordan 3 “Patchwork”
These sneakers definitely aren’t for everybody. However, if you’re into patches and the DIY look, these will be your bread and butter sneaker for years to come. With a slew of camos (which include woodland, rain, oak bark) and earthy tones mixed in with orange highlights on the outsole, tongue and insole, these go very well with any military-inspired look. They also incorporate waxed canvas, herringbone, wool and twill, truly a sneaker for the winter. Hit up SNKRS app and select retailers.
Release Date: November 29, 2021
Resell pre-release: $250 – $480
