If it’s hyped, it’s here. You can check out the full list of releases on Eastbay’s Release Calendar. Here’s what you have to look forward to this weekend:

Jordan Retro 17+ 'Copper'


Inspired by Michael’s passion for jazz music, the Retro 17+ ‘Copper’ has a supremely clean white, black, and blue colorway treated with metallic copper around the heel and eyelets. The original AJ 17 dropped in 2002 with a Jordan face box, but this release is rumored to come in a briefcase with a CD. Will you be one the few who get a pair on Saturday? Men’s $249.99.

Jordan Retro 5 'Metallic Silver'


Last time it was released (2007,) the shoe was women’s-only, but this Retro 5 Low ‘Metallic Silver’ is being remastered for girls when it drops on Saturday. The mostly white shoe is accented by grey speckles on the midsole and an icy translucent outsole. Grade School $119.99, Preschool $74.99, Toddler $54.99.

Nike Flyknit Racer 'Pink Flash'


Nike spent four years researching, engineering, and designing Flyknit technology, and it shows in the Flyknit Racer. It’s ultra-light (5.6 ounces) and is bound by a one-piece upper for a non-restrictive and locked-in feel. The ‘Pink Flash’ color scheme is reminiscent of a summer sunset, and you can get it today. Men’s $149.99.

Nike Air Penny II 'Varsity Royal'


This shoe was originally part of the Vegas-exclusive ‘Penny Pack’ released in 2011. The ‘Varsity Royal’ color scheme makes for a dynamic, throwback style. The icy translucent outsole provides the cherry on top. Pay homage to Hardaway in his Air Penny II today. Men’s $159.99.
