The last two months of the year are always loaded with highly coveted sneaker releases and 2018 is no different.

As we approach the heart of the Holiday season there are a number of dates you'll want to keep an eye on, whether you're looking for a casual pair of UltraBoosts or the latest Air Jordans.

The action has already begun with the release of an all-new Air Jordan 5, and will continue all the way up until the end of the month when Jordan Brand drops off a sleek, game-ready Air Jordan 33. In between, sneakerheads can look forward to a couple of Yeezy Boost 350 V2s, a new colorway of James Harden's Adidas Harden Vol.3, Nike SBs, the Kyrie 5 and more.

Without further adieu, scroll through down to check out 10 of the best sneakers dropping in the coming weeks.



Air Jordan 5 "Black Satin"

Release Date: November 3 (Available Here)

Retail Price: $190

 

In 2016, Jordan Brand began experimenting with satin materials on the Air Jordan 1, revamping the iconic "Banned" colorway with sleek, satin detailing. A "Royal" Air Jordan 1 Satin followed in 2017 and a "Shattered Backboard" women's exclusive released earlier this year.

Now, Jordan Brand is bringing the satin design to the Air Jordan 5 with an all-new "Bred" colorway. The kicks, available in sizes for the whole fam, feature a predominately black satin build accompanied by a red speckled midsole and an icy blue translucent outsole. Additional details include a reflective 3M tongue with a red jumpman, while a black jumpman sits on the heel, blending with the black satin upper.


Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Zebra"

Release Date: November 9

Retail Price: $220

 

One of two Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s slated to release in November, the white and black striped Zebra Yeezys will be available globally on Friday, November 9. The kicks, retailing for $220, first released last June and are currently selling for upwards of $500 at consignment shops like Flight Club.

It's unknown how many pairs will be available but there's hope that the kicks won't be so limited considering the "Triple White" Yeezy Boost 350 V2 recently restocked in massive quantities.


Diamond Supply Co. x Nike SB Dunk Low

Release Date: November 10

Retail Price: $100

 

Diamond Supply Co. and Nike have teamed up for a limited edition sequel to the original "Tiffany" Nike SB Dunk Low that released in 2005. Diamond Supply founder Nick Tershay aka Nicky Diamonds recently revealed two colorways - one black, one white - both of which feature velcro Nike swooshes featuring the familiar "Tiffany" blue shade underneath.

Both will be releasing on November 10, but the black colorway will be available at Nike SNKRS and at select skateshops, while the white pair will release exclusively at a limited number of skateshops. 

Additionally, there's a third "Canary Yellow" rendition but that pair will be a ComplexCon exclusive releasing November 3.


Adidas Harden Vol.3 "Supernova"

Release Date: November 16

Retail Price: $140

 

Adidas and James Harden have big plans for his new signature sneaker, the Harden Vol. 3, including several space-themed colorways, nods to NASA and H-Town.

Already released in "Voyager" and "Mission 13" colorways, the Adidas Harden Vol. 3 will launch in multiple new colorways in November, includin this white/black "Supernova" rendition which is the best yet IMHO. 

Designed to compliment Harden's signature step-backs and euro steps, these shoes are built with extra lockdown for side-to-side movement and control as you get separation from defenders. Additionally, they feature exceptional grip and traction to change directions on a dime and "slow down fast."


Air Jordan 1 High OG "Rookie Of The Year"

Release Date: November 17

Retail Price: $160

 

Jordan Brand will be releasing a couple of brand new Air Jordan 1s this Holiday season as part of their annual Women's Collection, including this newly unveiled Fall-friendly colorway.

The Air Jordan 1 High "Rookie of the Year" comes in a "golden harvest" and black colorway which pays homage to MJ’s historical rookie season and takes design cues from the outfit he wore the day he accepted the ROY award in 1985. Highlights include detached collar flaps that display his rookie season statistics and a quote from his acceptance speech.

According to Nike, the Air Jordan 1 "Rookie of the Year" will release in unisex sizes on November 17 for the retail price of $160.


Nike Air Foamposite Pro "Black/Metallic Gold"

Release Date: November 17

Retail Price: $230

 

The Nike Air Foamposite Pro will return to retailers in November in a classic black/metallic gold colorway.

The kicks feature a black Foamposite shell equipped with metallic gold detailing throughout, including the Nike swooshes on the heel and upper. The "Black/Metallic Gold" Foamposite Pro is also highlighted by a strip of gold that runs down the black tongue and gold text on the black heel tab.

Nike recently introduced official images of the new Foams along with information that the kicks will be available for purchase on November 17 for the retail price of $230.


Adidas UltraBoost 1.0 "Chalk White"

Release Date: November 21

Retail Price: $200

 

The Adidas Ultra Boost, one of the brand's most popular silhouettes, is slated to return in OG form later this month, just three years after the beloved sneaker made its debut. 

Adidas has announced that the Ultra Boost 1.0 "Chalk White" aka "Cream" colorway will be arriving on November 21 as part of a three-sneaker "Legacy Pack." The kicks feature the same industry-defining technologies that runners have come to know and love, including a breathable Primeknit upper and the beloved Boost cushioning, wrapped in a Continental Rubber outsole.

The pack also consists of two additional UltraBoost 1.0 colorways - white and navy - featuring the popular ‘Rainbow’ yarn detailing. Those two will drop on November 8.


Nike Kyrie 5 "Blk Mgc"

Release Date: November 22

Retail Price: $130

 

The Kyrie 5 - latest signature sneaker of Boston Celtics All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving - will finally make it's retail debut later this month in a black and white "BLK MGC" colorway.

The kicks are highlighted by a new Nike Air Zoom unit engineered to help Kyrie play quicker and sharper, as well as a new Flywire system and traction pattern on the sole.

Benjamin Nethongkome, designer of the KYRIE 5, breaks down its three critical elements:

1. An articulated forefoot zoom bag This is a huge technological unlock for supporting guard play. Why? Because of its unique properties (see sidebar for more on this), the Air Zoom Turbo unit curves to wrap the bottom and sides of the foot. "In the Kyrie 5, it is distributed across the entire forefoot footbed, working with his quick-change-of-direction style of play. When he's banking, cutting, or attacking in drastic degrees, his foot will engage the Air Zoom Turbo unit providing responsiveness at all directions," explains Nethongkome.

2. A new containment system Inspired by a Venus Flytrap, this feature creates optimal containment above the Air Zoom Turbo unit. “The Flywire is arranged so that it locks the foot into the Air Zoom Turbo unit, and this amplifies the responsiveness of Zoom in the forefoot,” says Nethongkome. “We wanted it to be both beautiful and improve on fit and feel.”

3. A new traction pattern This draws direct inspiration from Irving. “The traction system for the KYRIE 5 creates stability through discreet geometries,” says Nethongkome. “Have you seen the Hamsa hand tattoo on his left arm? It's a symbol of protection for him, it kind of shields him from all the bad juju, and so it became the jump-off point for the shaping of the outsole patterns. He wants to have more than just a basketball shoe. And this allows us to apply more of his spirit throughout the shoe.”

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Sesame"

Release Date: November 23

Retail Price: $220

 

The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 will be heading to retailers once more in an all-new colorway on Black Friday.

Although Kanye West has hinted at more colorful Yeezy Boost releases, this upcoming "Sesame" rendition is more in line with the traditional, Earthy tones that were used on the original run of Yeezy Boosts. The kicks, retailing for $220, feature a light khaki primeknit upper, accompanied by a smoky Boost midsole and a timeless gum outsole beneath it all.

It looks as though the Sesame Yeezys will be one of the last Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s to release, as Kanye West and Adidas reportedly have plans to roll out the Yeezy Boost 350 V3 in the first quarter of 2019.


Air Jordan 33 "Utility Black"

Release Date: November 29

Retail Price: $175

 

According to Nike, the “Utility Blackout” Air Jordan 33 is inspired by the brand’s history of stealth-inspired colorways. With the exception of red stitching and an ice sole, it’s all black and ready to hit the court.

The Air Jordan 33 is the first Air Jordan basketball shoe to feature Nike’s FastFit technology. FastFit removes laces and introduces an all-new system for containment on the court, an innovation designed to provide ultimate lockdown.

“Flight has always been part of our Jordan DNA,” says Jordan Brand Vice President of Design David Creech. “Our team considered the utility-led design of space flight suits and used that inspiration to help craft the AJ XXXIII. Like those suits, the shoe features visible technology designed for function, but that also becomes a staple style element.”

How FastFit works, according to Jordan Brand:

  1. Loops on the tongue and heel allow easier entry
  2. The tightening system activates its cables with a single tug of the forefoot strap, creating a full 360-lockdown
  3. Eject by pulling the side loops to release the cables 

Like all of the Jordan models post the AJ30, the 33 also features subtle design cues from the past. The window to the tightening system mimics the original Air window, and the use of “Nike Air” on the heel tab is a reflection of the III, IV, V and VI. The extra-large tongue is also the perfect canvas for a Jumpman — just as it was when Tinker Hatfield debuted the logo on the Air Jordan 3.
