It's Friday and a new weekend of sneaker releases is finally here. As always, this weekend will be full of dope releases with a variety of styles and models from the biggest brands in footwear.

The sneaker picks for XXL this weekend include the latest retro version of the Air Jordan 8, a new Nike Retro iteration of LeBron James' first silhouette, the colorful and vibrant Nike Kenny Moore Cortez pack, a new version of the technically advanced Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 and the first collab release between R&B singer The Weeknd and Puma. Ranging between $110 and $250, XXL's five sneaker choices are the perfect kicks to rock before the end of the summer.

Leading the way this weekend with the best release of the next two days will be Jordan Brand with the return of the Cool Grey Air Jordan 8 Retro iteration. Another pair of sneakers worth highlighting this weekend are Nike's newest and latest HyperAdapt 1.0 in a red lagoon colorway. Another highlight of the weekend is The Weeknd's first collab release with Puma on the high top XO Parallel sneaker.

Most of last weekend’s sneaker releases sold out fast. With that said, here’s XXL’s top five sneaker picks of the weekend that’ll be available at select retailers and of course, online. Check out the gallery below.
