Another big weekend of sneaker releases is ahead of us for those in the U.S. This weekend will see top notch releases from Nike, Jordan Brand and adidas.
We kick off our top sneakers for the weekend with two Jordan Brand silhouettes set to drop this Saturday. The Air Jordan XX9 will get the 'Easter' treatment with its retro pastel green upper, similar to the color tones of the Easter treats. For the Jordan Brand, it's uncommon to create sneakers after the Easter festivities, so these should be a rare and must-have pick up. The Jumpman will also be dropping the high;y anticipated Air Jordan 4 Retro 'Laser,' a sneaker that is sure to sell out within minutes. The AJ 4 will come in a white based upper with laser-detailing across the entire shoe with a icy blue outsole to give it the perfect finishing touch.
Nike will also be in the mix this weekend with two stellar drops, the Nike LeBron 12 EXT and the Kyrie 1 'Brotherhood.' The LeBron 12 EXT will pay tribute to the King's hometown of Akron, also known as 'Rubber City'. The sneaker is predominately black with chrome accents featured on the Swoosh and tongue of the shoe and finished off with a icy outsole. The Kyrie 1 sneaker will be themed after Kyrie Irving's college team, the Duke Blue Devils and his respect for Coach K. Featuring the royal blue and white colorways of Duke, the sneaker will be complimented by a black color-blocking on the upper and a multi-color midsole.
Rounding off our top 5, is the much raved about adidas Tubular 'Snakeskin' running sneaker. The shoe will drop in a maroon and black colorway and will add a touch of luxury with the synthetic serpent skin on the toe box, back heel and tongue of the shoe. The silhouette will continue to the push the popular neoprene sock-fit upper.
