A new weekend full of highly anticipated sneaker releases is here! Comprised of a number of coveted drops, the next two days will include releases from the biggest brands in footwear including Nike, Jordan Brand and Puma. Just like each and every Friday, XXL selects the top five kicks sneakerheads should scoop up this weekend.

With plenty of heat dropping between today and tomorrow, XXL's five sneaker picks this weekend include: the Air Jordan 12 Retro Michigan, Nike Air Max 270 Be True, Puma Thunder Electric, Nike Air Flightposite and the Nike Cortez Kenny 3.

This weekend's standout pair comes from the Jumpman with launch of the Michigan University-themed Air Jordan 12. Paying homage to the Wolverine football team, the sneakers feature a navy blue and and yellow upper with the school's signature logo featured on the tongue and outsole of the shoes. Another pair worth highlighting this weekend is the third installment of Kendrick Lamar's Nike Cortez collab shoe. Inspired by Lamar's alter-ego, Kung Fu Kenny, the sneaker features a nylon upper in black with Asian typography embroidered on the outer side panels.

This weekend's sneaker picks will retail from $120 to $200 at select footwear stores and online boutiques .
