Each week, we’ll break down the most popular upcoming shoe drops. We’ll give you the lowdown on the prices and sizes, break down the history of the shoe, and give you the scoop on their newest tech features. Check back every week for the hottest releases. 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 5 LOW ‘ALTERNATE’ – JAN 30 AT 10 AM ET
The Alternate collection by Jordan brand brings us its fifth installment: the Jordan Retro 5 Low ‘Alternate’. The “but what if?” colorway brings us a different Chicago Bulls color that many of us have probably imagined, but hadn’t fully pictured until now. The culmination of your sneaker fantasies, brought to you by the Jordan Alternate collection. Men’s $174.99. Grade School $119.99. Preschool $74.99. Toddler $54.99.
UNDER ARMOUR CURRY 2 ‘STORM’ – JAN 29 AT 10 AM ET
Hints of mint green with a speckled grey midsole make up the color of the Under Armour Curry 2 ‘Storm’. The nickname is fitting for how Stephen has been making it rain all season long. It’s strange how little flair is on this shoe, considering the flashiness of Stephen’s play; however, if you’re into plain grey or want a comfortable on-court shoe to wear casually, you might like it. Men’s $129.99, Grade School $99.99, Preschool $74.99.
ADIDAS D LILLARD 2 ‘BHM’ – JAN 29 AT 10 AM ET
Just in time for Black History Month, adidas’ D Lillard 2 will be joining their other signature shoes and getting the BHM treatment. Predominantly white filled with gold foil, the shoe pays tribute to the legendary sprinter Jesse Owens (who they just made a movie about), and is a great addition to any fan’s collection. Men’s only $104.99.
ADIDAS D LILLARD 2 ‘AWAY’ – JAN 29 AT 10 AM ET
These shoes capture the feeling of being booed while torching your opponents for 20+ points. The adidas D Lillard 2 ‘Away’ shoes are for those who always feel at home, even when they’re the visitor. They are basically an inverse of the D Lillard 2 ‘Home’ shoes that dropped last month, and they are available on Friday. Men’s $104.99. Grade School $84.99. Preschool $64.99
