AJ Retro 1 High ‘The Return’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

The Air Jordan 1 High ‘The Return’ has, well, returned in a first-ever colorway that’s sure to be a staple for sneakerheads. A beautiful assortment of white, black, and soar (not much unlike the highly-prized ‘Fragment’ colorway) creates a clean, street-ready shoe. Summed up in one word? Gorgeous.
Men’s $149.99



AJ Retro 7 High ‘Fuchsia Glow’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

‘Fuchsia Glow’ will only extend to girls’ grade school sizes, but that hasn’t tempered the hype. The smooth white leather upper pops with bright fuchsia accents, while the mulberry around the midsole gives off a feminine aura. This is definitely a win for the young Jordan fanatic, and we hope to see more successful girls-only shoes in the future.
Girls’ $139.99



adidas Rose 6 ‘Home’ – Available Now 

The latest D Rose shoe’s mantra is “Never break.” This is fitting for one of the most resilient players in the game. Despite suffering several injuries, he keeps coming back better, faster, and stronger. The shoe features a full-length Boost midsole, with a neutral slate colorway. Like Rose himself, this shoe is all business. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the grey camo sole.
Men’s $159.99



Nike KD 8 ‘Easy Euro’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

These kicks are money — pun intended. Inspired by KD’s unforgettable nine-day, four-city European tour, this color is borrowed from the fifty euro note. This top performance shoe is now as beautiful as it is powerful. If you’re looking for a fresh pair of on-court low-cuts, start here.
Men’s $179.99, Boys’ $134.99



Nike Air Max Effort AMP ‘OSU’ – Available Now

This Air Max is a Buckeye fan’s badge of honor. With the team logo on the front, and “Train like a Buckeye” written inside the tongue, you’ll be as motivated as ever. Regardless of your fandom, the shoe’s mostly-black tone with a red swoosh symbol and fly cables mesh considerably well. A top training shoe designed for the defending champs of college football? A must-cop for Buckeye fans.
Men’s $99.99



Nike Field Generals Trainer 2 ‘Seize The Spotlight’ – Available Now

Built to train quarterbacks, the highly anticipated follow-up to the Field General 1 does not disappoint. More lightweight than its predecessor, the 2 takes a seamless Fuse construction combined with a full-length Zoom unit for incredible speed and superior cushioning. 5 stars on the tongue is spot-on. Don’t just play on the gridiron — take it.
