Air Jordan I Retro High OG Black/White

Release Date: 11/8/2014

Leading off the second weekend of November releases is the clean black/white Air Jordan I Retro High OG, which is dropping this Saturday at select Jordan Brand retailers across the nation. The last time you had a chance at this colorway was back in 2008 with the 1/22 Countdown Pack release.

Acapulco Gold x Nike SB Dunk High PRM

Release Date: 11/8/2014

New York-based Acapulco Gold has teamed up with Nike Skateboarding to produce this Dunk High PRM iteration in one of the most iconic swoosh colorways, a nod to the original Nike ACG Air Mowabb.

Concepts x New Balance 997 "Rose"

Release Date: 11/8/2014

Concepts will be opening a special pop-up shop in the Tribeca area of New York City to celebrate this limited release. The offering? A Made in the USA New Balance 997 draped in rose-colored pig suede complete with a grey croc-embossed reflective tongue and heel counter which is sure to turn some heads.

Nike Court Zoom Vapor AJ3 Black/Cement

Release Date: 11/10/2014

With the first white/cement Zoom Vapor AJ3 being an instant sellout, you can expect to see the same response with the new black/cement iteration set to drop online at NikeLab (Nike Store) this coming Monday, November 10th.

Nike KD7 N7

Release Date: 11/8/2014

With the yearly tradition of Kevin Durant’s N7 iterations releasing for a while now, the word is we won’t have to wait much longer for a chance at this new KD7 makeup.

Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid "Wheat"

Release Date: 11/14/2014

Although having released at just a few select retailers across the pond already, fans in the US will soon have their own chance to go after this “Wheat” Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid to possibly complete their ‘Flax’ Collection.

Undefeated x Nike Lunar Force 1 Low

Release Date: 11/14/2014

On its last collaboration with the Swoosh, Undefeated produced a two-pack which featured both a Lunar Force 1 Low and High. For this upcoming two-pack, we see two new premium Lunar Force 1 Low colorways. The first pair features a black suede upper, while the other uses UNDFTD’s signature Shemagh pattern in red/white.

Air Jordan 13 Retro "Grey Toe"

Release Date: 11/15/2014

Originally released in 2005, the “Grey Toe” Air Jordan 13 Retro is back with a few adjustments. The first being that the grey color is a lighter ‘Cement’ color unlike the predecessor which featured a darker ‘Flint Grey’ color. The second change is that the tongue is now fully grey instead of the original white.

Asics Holiday Pack 2014

Release Date: 11/15/2014

We’ve been teased long enough by the upcoming general release 2014 Holiday pack from Asics and you’ll be able to quench your thirst soon enough on November 15th as that is the date Finish Line has them listed on its release calendar.

24 Kilates x Diadora N9000 "Sol y Sombra"

Release Date: 11/15/2014

Barcelona retailer 24 Kilates has quite a few sweet collabs under their belt. On November 15th they will add yet another as they have teamed up with Diadora to release a pack of N9000 kicks dubbed the “Sol y Sombra” pack. The pack pays homage to one of their favorite pastimes of bullfighting by playing off of the two different seating sections in the arena where one can purchase seats on the sol (sun) side or sombra (shadow) side. This “Sun” iteration will be the first of the pack to release, while the other is set to drop December 15. Unfortunately no photos are available of the “Sombra” makeup just yet.

Nike Air Python 'Snakeskin'

Release Date: 11/20/2014

After a brief hiatus, the Nike Air Python is set to return in two all-new ‘Snakeskin’ makeups. You will have your choice of either ‘Cream’ or ‘Obsidian’ and both iterations feature debossed faux-snakeskin leather uppers along with reflective 3M detailing. They are both slated to release online via NikeLab (Nike Store).

Fragment x Nike Sock Dart SP

Release Date: 11/20/2014 (Date listed on End Clothing’s release calendar; might be December time frame in US)

Headed up by Nike’s Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker, and fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, we will see the Nike Dart silo ultimately release in four colorways by the end of the year. It may not be a silo for everyone, but we’re sure those who do pick up a pair will be very comfortable in the sock-like sneaker. But don’t get too enamored with this ‘Olive’ makeup though, as it sounds like it might not be part of the initial release offering. We’ll see…

Nike Foamposite One "Knicks"

Release Date: 11/26/2014

We’ve all seen Spike wear them and now it looks like New York Knicks fans will able to pick up their very own pair of these anticipated Foamposite’s later this month.

Air Jordan 6 Retro Black/Infrared

Release Date: 11/28/2014

Every time “Black Friday” has come around lately we all know there will be a dope Jordan set to drop. This year is certainly no exception as we’ll see the release of the classic black/infrared Air Jordan 6 Retro. Rejoice!

Nike Air Max Penny 1 'University Red’'

Release Date: 11/28/2014

You don’t often see a Penny sneaker in a basically all-red makeup, so we’re sure this university red/white release will make fans very happy this upcoming Black Friday. And they’re definitely a nice consolation prize if you strike out on the Jordan 6 Retro.

Nike Air Max "Black Safari" Pack

Release Date: 11/28/2014

We’ve already got a huge line up of sought-after sneakers that are scheduled to release this Black Friday, and you can certainly throw these two dope pairs into the mix. The Air Max 90 features an all-black leather and safari print upper with hits of Infrared, while the Air Max 1 is done up in a similar fashion but instead uses a royal blue as the contrasting color.

Ronnie Fieg x New Balance MT850

Release Date: 11/28/2014 (Rumored release time frame)

You know when Ronnie Fieg puts something out, it’s going to be top notch…and highly anticipated. Following up last year’s Black Friday release, Ronnie is once again teaming up with New Balance on what looks to be an MT850 model possibly using a similar color scheme as last year’s “Daytona” release. As a teaser was just recently released, we obviously don’t know what the full look of the sneaker will be and the Black Friday release is not set in stone as nothing official has been announced just yet.

Kanye West x adidas Yeezi

Release Date: Late November (Rumored release time frame)

In what was just recently revealed as the possible first offering from Kanye West and adidas as the Yeezi model, the second part of the story is that these will be releasing on Black Friday. Time will obviously tell once adidas officially announces, but you can bet they’d like to get a release out just in time for holiday shopping.

Jordan I Retro OG High Black/Gum

Release Date: 12/6/2014

We’ve made no secret about being huge fans of gum soles and when you use an Air Jordan I as the canvas along with an all-black leather upper, the potential for an instant classic is very real. Count us down for two puuuurrrrs!

Air Jordan 13 Retro "Infrared"

Release Date: 12/13/2014

In a way similar to the Jordan 13 “Playoff” colorway, this all-new makeup is looking like a great one all on its own. Featuring an all-black tumbled leather and suede upper while sitting on top of a red and black midsole, we’re pretty sure people will be all over these.

Air Jordan 11 Retro "Pantone" University Blue

Release Date: Early December (Rumored release time frame)

We know that many have been yearning for this release ever since we saw the Pantone 284 Collection as part of the “For the Love of the Game” touring exhibition a few years back. It looks like this Jordan 11 will finally see the light of day, but the other big question mark is will they be a standalone release or part of a special two-pack with a new Jordan XX9 colorway. Hmmmm.

Air Jordan 11 Retro 'Legend Blue'

Release Date: 12/20/2014

While many may have been expecting (hoping) the “Columbia’s” to release last year as the annual Jordan 11 holiday drop, we instead were delivered an all-new ‘Gamma Blue’ colorway. And even though this year’s release is labeled ‘Legend Blue,’ we knew most people will still refer to them as “Columbia’s” and you can expect the thirst to be quite real for this drop.

Undefeated x Asics Gel Lyte V "False Flag"

Release Date: Late December (Rumored release time frame)

You already know Undefeated is no stranger to putting out dope collabs, but as many as they’ve produced, this will be their first time partnering up with the tiger-stripe brand. We’ve seen quite a few Asics Gel Lyte V releases this year and from the looks of it, this one may rank as one of the best.

Fragment x Jordan I High

Release Date: Late December (Rumored release time frame)

Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design outfit is no stranger to the Swoosh and it looks like this year we will see his Jordan debut. And what better shoe to use other than the first Jordan silo, right? Using the same color blocking as the “Black Toe” Jordan I, this pair replaces the red with royal blue and comes complete with the fragment design logo stamped onto the heel. We sure hope we can get our hands on these jewels!

Air Jordan I Mid 'Legend Blue' (Finish Line Exclusive)

Release Date: Late December (Estimated release time frame)

It looks like this holiday season Finish Line will be stocking the shelves with an exclusive pair of Jordan I Mids. Basically what we’re getting is the ‘Legend Blue’ 11 in the form of a Jordan 1 Mid, complete with the patent leather and all. With a pair this clean combined with being an exclusive drop, we don’t anticipate these sitting on shelves very long.
