Wish ATL

Summertime is here and that means plenty of sneaker releases that will burn a hole through your wallet. But just because there’s all of this new stuff dropping, it doesn’t mean you have to keep up with all of the rich sneakerheads (and broke ones that don’t understand the concept of credit cards) because you probably all sorts of heat in your drawer that you either haven’t worn or have been saving up since the winter to finally undeadstock. Besides, who needs a fresh pair of Jordan 11 Lows or Yeezys anyways?

As always, all sneaker releases and prices are subject to change.

10Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Navy


Release Date: June 4
Price: $160

It’s the Air Jordan 1 in a classic, clean style, what’s not to love? Well, other than the look on your face when you realize you paid $160 for a pair of 1s in 2016, remastered or not. Also the look on your face after that first dirt smudge ends up on your toe. Ok, maybe it’s not all love as it turns out, but hey, retros, right?

Note: We have a Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Navy launch page that you might want to check out.

9NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing Collection

Release Date: June 2
Price: Varies

Despite my loathing of most things soccer, it’s impossible for me to not appreciation this great collaboration between the swoosh and designer Olivier Rousteing. Yes, a lot of it has to do with Rousteing’s brilliant taste in color palette (ie. black and gold), but not only are the kicks great, but the accompanying gear is also top notch. The N98 jacket is a must have.

8Nintendo x Vans Collection


Release Date: June 3
Price: Varies

Finally, retros that are actually cool. This collaboration of Nintendo and Vans drops in a variety of styles that are sure to be on the feet of plenty of video game journos (including me) during the E3 show in a few weeks. I only wish that there was a Famicom controller version though since that was the system I grew up, not that grey, black and red absurdity.

7Air Jordan 11 Low Varsity Red

Release Date: June 4
Price: $170

The summer belongs to the Air Jordan 11 Low and for the past several years we have seen many colorways of the low-cut sneaker invade our sunny days. The next to join in this tradition are a pair of colorways starting with the Varisty Red colorway that will be returning after an extended absence.

Note: We have a Air Jordan 11 Low Varsity Red that you might want to check out.

6Nike Kyrie 2 Kyrache

Release Date: June 7
Price: $120

This blast from the past is the proper way to do a tribute to an iconic sneaker. You can’t just place the OG colorway of the Nike Air Flight Huarache on any Nike silhouette and call it a day. The look and feel of the shoe have to match the spirit of the original and the Kyrache does exactly that in way that nobody could have seen coming.

5Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack


Release Date: June 25
Price: $250 Each

Sure, the white pair might not be an OVO release, but that means many of us might actually have a shot at them. The $250 price point for these premium releases is going to be rough hit for a lot of us to accept, however, and you can be sure that a lot of conversation about pricing is going to come up once again. But don’t expect these to sit because if any of the previous Championship Packs have taught us anything it’s that anything with the words “Jordan Pack” attached to it is just gone in seconds.

Note: We also have an Air Jordan 8 Championship Pack launch page that might be worth checking out.

4Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar


Release Date: June 3
Price: $200

How do you sell Michael Jordan and his vast legacy to a generation that doesn’t give a s**t about him or his retros (yes, these people actually do exist, sneakerheads): pair him up with their heroes. At the age of 24, Neymar is old enough to have memories of prime Michael Jordan, even if it’s just Space Jam. But to a kid who is now growing up admiring Neymar the same way the soccer star admired MJ, it’s a different world. To them, MJ is the guy with old shoes and a crying meme, so why not leverage Neymar’s admiration for the GOAT and remind the kids with a classic Air Jordan with the jersey numbers of MJ and Neymar and a soccer boot that brings to mind the classic design? It’s a no-brainer and the Jordan Admiration Society (aka Jordan Defense Force aka Jordan stans) only grows.

But real talk? I’d rather have a non-cleated version of Neymar’s Hypervenoms with the Air Jordan 5-inspired design.

Note: Hey, we’ve got an Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar launch page that you’ll want to save for future reference.

3adidas Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum

Price: ?

Yeezy season stars again. Just bring it…

Rock Bring It

2Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum

Release Date: June 4
Price: $170

And here’s the other low-cut Air Jordan 11 that will be dropping this coming weekend. It’s not an easy choice for a lot of people, but I’ll go with the pair that MJ actually wore once upon a time.

Note: Yes, we have an Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum launch page that you should check out. Why would you ask?

1Under Armour Curry Back To Back Pack

Release Date: June 24
Price: $400

A great way to celebrate a back-to-back MVP and championship seasons for Steph. Yeah, I said it.

Note: Naturally, we have an Under Armour Curry Back To Back launch page that is everything you need to know about the upcoming release.
