As we close in on the Thanksgiving weekend shopping bonanza, sneaker releases are ramping up to close out the year. Supply chain issues or not, these brands are making collaborations happen and giving fans something to be thankful for. Let’s jump right into it.

 

Noah x adidas Originals Fall 2021 collection

Nearly a year after they worked together to bring us some flashy Gazelles, Noah and adidas Originals have reconnected for a Fall 2021 running sneaker capsule. Blurring the line between performance and lifestyle, the duo have created two colorways for the Lab Race model and Vintage Runner. All four are made from adidas’ Primegreen recycled materials and 50% of the upper is recycled content, we love it. Noah will release the entire collection, along with apparel, via noahny.com. adidas will release the Lab Race “Halo Ivory,” Lab Race “Dark Blue/Cloud White,” Vintage Runner “Dark Blue/Lush Red” and Vintage Runner “Collegiate Gold/Cloud White” through their CONFIRMED app.

 

Release Date: November 18, 2021
Retail: $200 (Lab Race), $140 (Vintage Runner)
Resell pre-release: N/A

 

Pleasures x Crocs Reflective Clog

I know it’s too early to think about summer (or maybe not), but maybe some of you will be lucky enough to escape the cold and head for warmer climates in the coming weeks. Anyways, the Pleasures x Crocs collaboration with reflective logo on the side is exactly what you need for the pool and beach. Hit up retailers like Extra Butter to cop.

 

Release Date: November 18, 2021
Retail: $70
Resell pre-release: $100 – $250

 

Nike Air Max 95 SE “Running Club” collection

Nike’s fictitious “Air Max Running Club” is inspired by the ’70s and you can see that translated on these two pairs. An exposed foam tongue and soft suede cover the upper while serrated edges bring all the groves to life. Fans will also appreciate the Beaverton, Oregon and “AMRC” hangtags on both the lateral and medial sides of the heel. You can shop the bright “Photo Blue” and “Black/Obsidian” pairs at select retailers like Extra Butter.

 

Release Date: November 18, 2021
Retail: $170
Resell pre-release: $205 – $245

 

 

Air Jordan 1 “Bordeaux”

Almost exactly a year after they brought back the CO.JP “Midnight Navy” Air Jordan 1, Jordan Brand is remixing the classic silhouette with a red Bordeaux. Once again featuring a metallic silver Swoosh and Wings logo, this iteration replaces all those navy hits with that deep warm red – perfect for the colder months. Hit up SNKRS app and select retailers like Extra Butter to cop.

 

Release Date: November 20, 2021
Retail: $170
Resell pre-release: $210 – $490

 

Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals HU NMD “Moon Man”

Pharrell returns to his HU NMD lineup to give us a fresh take for the cold season. Instead of writing “Human Race” in a different language or “N.E.R.D.,” this iteration sports the Moon Man motif of Billionaire Boys Club (BBC). The Primeknit upper is given vertical groves while sitting atop the BOOST midsole and translucent outsole. Hit up adidas CONFIRMED to enter for a chance to purchase now.

 

Release Date: November 20, 2021
Retail: $250
Resell pre-release: $280 – $450
