NIKE REACT HYPERDUNK 2017 FLYKNIT – SEPT. 15 AT 10 AM ET
The latest colorway of the Nike REACT Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit is finally here and this time around, they’re bringing the blue. The heathered royal blue and grey Flyknit upper adds more flash to the line than previous models. It’s sure to turn heads, but what really separates this shoe is its on-court performance. Its REACT foam midsole is the next step forward in responsive energy return. Looking for a different colorway of the new Hyperdunks? We’ve got you covered. Men’s $159.99.
JORDAN RETRO 8 ‘CEMENT’ – SEPT. 16 AT 10 AM ET
Jordan lovers are in for a treat with the Jordan Retro 8 ‘Cement.’ For a fresh take on the 8s, Jordan has been dropping new colorways that take inspiration from legendary designs from other AJ Retros. On this one, the black suede and leather upper combine with cement grey and gym red accents for a callback to the classic Air Jordan Retro 4 ‘Cement.’ It’s sure to be a go-to for sneakerheads everywhere — and personally, may be our favorite mash-up — so grab them before they’re gone. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.
GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 5 – SEPT. 16 AT 10 AM ET
GIRLS’ JORDAN AJ 1 HIGH PREMIUM – SEPT. 16 AT 10 AM ET
Female Jordan fans have a couple of great choices this weekend with the latest from the Jumpman’s Heiress Collection. These shoes’ premium style and comfort are reflected in their metallic-themed designs. The 5s have a woodland camouflage pattern along the upper and a white outsole, while the 1s feature a gold swoosh along their black upper. Either one is like a trophy for your feet and is the perfect way to bring your look into a class of its own. Girls’ Retro 5 $159.99. Girls’ AJ 1 $139.99.
NIKE PG 1 – SEPT. 16 AT 10 AM ET
It’s not quite OKC blue, but the Nike PG 1 is ideal if you want to get hyped for Paul George’s debut with his new squad. The royal blue upper works with the speckled midsole to create a smooth, clean look. It’s just what you need to cheer him on this season or if you want to do some hooping of your own. Men’s $109.99.
