A few recognizable old school colorways return for this week’s sneaker releases. But the cream of the crop is on the hardwood and features basketball sneakers. Let’s jump right into it.

 

Nike Dunk Low “Championship Goldenrod”

The Iowa-inspired “Goldenrod” colorway brings back the crisp black and yellow run that is beloved by sneaker fans everywhere to the Dunk Low. A pair that can be dressed up or down, the $100 price tag and high resell Dunk market make these a good rotation and flip pair. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: December 16, 2021
Retail: $100
Resell pre-release: $140 – $165

 

adidas YZY BSKTBL Knit “Slate Blue”

adidas’ basketball division is continuing to push out YEEZY BASKETBALL sneakers under the YZY BSKTBL moniker. This time around, we’re introduced to a new silhouette that is a mash-up of the classic YEEZY BOOST 350 V2’s Primeknit upper and the outsole from the YEEZY QNTM model. The sock-like entry and entire sneaker reminds me of the Nike Kobe 9… If you want this new model, hit up CONFIRMED app to cop.

Resell pre-release: $350 – $500

 

Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX “Sail”

If you weren’t a fan of the “Particle Grey” colorway release from earlier this month, Jordan Brand is back with a more muted “Sail” iteration this week. Once again covering the classic Air Jordan 1 with GORE-TEX and adding plush lining to the inside, this winter-ready high-top sneaker and its unique black and translucent outsole will have you looking fresh even in the worst weather.

Air Jordan 1 “Craft”

This unique pair of AJ1’s looks like random colors thrown together at first glance but it’s actually the blending of unexpected materials. We have our classic soft leather and nubuck sneaker materials in addition to canvas, reflective 3M and a stitched Wings logo. I’m a fan of the multi-color laces as well. Hit up SNKRS app for a chance to own these.

Nike LeBron 19 “Uniform Hook”

Inspired by the Tune Squad uniform from the latest Space Jam: A New Legacy film, this bright orange, red and blue LeBron 19 not only features Max Air and Zoom Air technology, but also an extremely secure lacing system and plenty of lightweight materials. Bring joy to your game and anguish to your opponents in these new bball kicks. SNKRS app has you covered.
