The releases start on Wednesday when Jordan Brand drops a premium black and gold Air Jordan I to celebrate the upcoming 2018 NBA All Star Weekend festivities in Los Angeles. On Thursday, Adidas delivers another colorway of its new lifestyle runner, the Adidas Prophere. Thursday will also deliver the next two colorways of Nike’s Air More Money Currency Pack inspired by the British Pound and French Euro, a fully OG version of the Air Huarache complete with “Nike Air” branding on the tongue, the stateside release of Cristiano Ronaldo’s special white and gold Air Force 1, and a deconstructed version of the classic Nike SB Dunk Low. Nike continues its drops the following day with a new red and black “Habanero” colorway of the auto-lacing Hyperadapt 1.0.
Saturday brings two more releases from Adidas. Hong Kong boutique Juice is dropping an Adidas Consortium collaboration to debut the new NMD Racer. The Three Sripes is also dropping a four sneaker pack composed of both classic and new silhouettes to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Jordan Brand has pairs dropping this weekend as well. A “Camo” version of the Air Jordan XXXII Low with tiger camouflage detailing and an Air Jordan I Flyknit sporting the classic “Shadow” colorway will be hitting shelves on Saturday.
Air Jordan I ‘LA All Star’
This latest Air Jordan I colorway has been designed for the upcoming 2018 NBA All Star Weekend. It honors the model MJ wore in his first All Star Game appearance in 1985 with a premium black leather upper, gold accents, an icy outsole, and special insoles featuring a map of LA.
Air Jordan XXXII Low ‘Camo’
Originally believed to be a grade school exclusive, this “Camo” Air Jordan XXXII Low will also be dropping in men’s sizing this Saturday. This pair has a black Flyknit upper, tiger camo overlay wrapping the heel, gold branding accents, and a gum outsole.
Air Jordan I Flyknit ‘Shadow’
After dropping in the classic “Bred” and “Royal” colorways in 2017, the Air Jordan I Flyknit returns in the classic “Shadow” colorway for 2018. As did the previous pairs, this updated Flyknit version of Jordan’s first signature sneaker utilizes the same color blocking as the original version but replaces the leather panels with Flyknit. Premium leather accents are still seen on the Swoosh, Wings logo, and inner lining.
Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 ‘Mirror Image’
Russell Westbrook debuted his first performance signature model with Jordan Brand on-court last week. Now, the Why Not Zer0.1 is making its retail debut with a colorway similar to the Brodie’s debut PE version. The “Mirror Image” Why Not Zer0.1 is wrapped in a black and white all-over print of various imagery related to both Westbrook and Michael Jordan. Unlike the PE pair, the retail release swaps orange and blue accents for red on areas like the Jumpman branding and laces. Other standout details on Westbrook’s first sig are its compression-molded pylon foam heel piece and “Why Not?” and Westbrook logo branding present on the tongue and ankle strap.

Adidas Prophere ‘Olive’
The next colorway of Adidas’ new lifestyle runner sports an olive Primeknit upper with pink speckles, olive nubuck Three Stripes lacing system, chunky white midsole, and pink accents on the bottom tread that pop against the otherwise dark color scheme.
Nike Basketball ‘BHM’ Collection
After a quiet 2017 lineup, Nike Basketball looks like it will be going back to its themed packs for its signature models in 2018. The first indication of this will be the “BHM” pack that includes a LeBron XV, KD X, and Kyrie 4. All pairs share a black, green, and red color palette borrowed from the Pan-African flag and gold accents. The Kyrie 4 sports a white upper with an all-over “Equality” print and black, green, and red outsole. The LeBron XV uses a black, green, and red Battleknit upper and black and gold accents, while the KD X features a black Flyknit upper with black, green, and red laces and gold branding hits.
