Additionally, BAPE teams up with Vans for their first-ever full range apparel and footwear collection. There’s also many other kicks to look forward to this week, let’s jump right into it.
Air Jordan 13 Low “Singles’ Day”
Apparently November 11th is “Singles’ Day” and to commemorate you loving yourself more than anyone else can, Jordan Brand is dropping a sneaker that glows. Inspired by cyberpunk aesthetics, the Air Jordan 13 Low comes in a glow-in-the-dark “Barely Green” that has a hidden code which can be revealed only by UV light. Hit up SNKRS app and select retailers like Feature and Extra Butter to cop.

Off-White x Air Jordan 2 Low “White and Varsity Red” & “Black and Varsity Royal”
The next Air Jordan silhouette to get the Virgil Abloh Off-White treatment is the iconic and often underappreciated AJ2. Made in Italy back in 1986, the original AJ2 was peak luxury and featured the most premium leather. Although simple in design, Abloh wanted to dive into the DNA Archive at Nike and pull a pair out of the time capsule. Using 3D scans of MJ’s pair, we’re given the pre-aged look on this new collaboration. Whether you want to flip or rock, these will be hard to acquire in both the classic White/Varsity Red and Black/Varsity Royal from SNKRS app and select retailer raffles like Feature.
Release Date: November 12, 2021
Resell pre-release: $575-$3,200 (White/Varsity Red), $500 – $2,400 (Black/Varsity Royal)
Concepts x New Balance 992 “Low Hanging Fruit”
Concepts returns this week with a New Balance collaboration that is inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of Frieda Caplan aka “The Kiwi Queen.” Because Concepts shares the same 1996 birthday as the Kiwi Strawberry flavored drinks we all enjoy, they thought it’d be great to create a kiwi-inspired sneaker on the 992. Brown suede and neon green builds on this idea. Concepts will have the raffle for in-store pick-ups today.
Release Date: November 12, 2021
Resell pre-release: $200 – $650
Air Jordan 12 “Royalty”
The Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” is one of the most recognizable Jordan sneakers around and this weekend, it returns with some small twists. The white upper is complemented with gold eyelets while the black midsole and outsole are contrasted by the gold mudguard. Instead of the usual red “23” on the heel and yellow tab, we’re given a white on black combination and further gold accents on the tongue. Available for the entire family, this would be a great early Christmas gift. Hit up SNKRS app and retailer raffles like Extra Butter and Feature.
Release Date: November 13, 2021
Retail: $190 (Adults), $140 (Big Kids), $80 (Little Kids), $60 (Toddlers)
