10 Most Anticipated Sneaker Releases for Fall & Winter 2017
Just because summer is over, it doesn’t mean that you have to put away your sneakers and let them collect dust until warm weather returns. Sneakers can be worn throughout the entire year, and with temperatures getting cooler in the upcoming months, the opportunity is there to create new outfit combinations with sneakers that you simply couldn’t wear in the summer due to the heat.
Fall and winter not only bring the excitement of coordinating new outfits to accommodate the change in climate, but they also bring the excitement of countless upcoming sneaker releases. The holiday season is also the time of the year when most brands save some of their best sneaker releases of the year for.
Here are our top 10 sneakers releasing in Fall & Winter 2017:
Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Royal”
Release Date: October 7, 2017
The iconic Air Jordan 1 from 1985 received a modern update with a new upper completely constructed with Flyknit. The most noticeable new design element is the Flyknit upper, but the addition of the Zoom Air unit in the rear heel is a hidden element that will increase comfort without sacrificing the classic look of the silhouette.
Nike Zoom Vapor Tour AJ3 “atmos”
Release Date: October 2017
Two of the greatest athletes of all time, Roger Federer and Michael Jordan, collaborated on an amazing project to create the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour AJ3. Having released in three of the original Air Jordan 3 colourways, this latest pays homage to the Japanese retailer atmos with its distinct black, white, clear jade, and elephant print colourway.
Nike x Off-White “The Ten” Collection
Release Date: November 2017
Arguably the most hyped collaborative project in recent years, Virgil Abloh teamed up with Nike to put his deconstructed and modern spin on a collection of ten shoes from Nike, Jordan, and Converse. Some of the highlights from this collection are the Air Jordan 1, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax, Nike Air Max 97, and the Converse Chuck Taylor.
adidas EQT Support 93/17 “Black Friday”
Release Date: November 24, 2017
One of the most comfortable shoes by adidas will be releasing in one of the most popular colourways. The adidas EQT Support 93/17 will be released in a triple black colourway, and it is only fitting that it will be available on Black Friday. Since the release of its first colourway earlier this year, this model has been praised as one of the most comfortable shoes on the market thanks to the amount of Boost technology in the midsoles.
adidas x Pharrell NMD Hu Trail
Release Date: November 11, 2017
The partnership between adidas and Pharrell has been wildly successful, evident through the ever-popular NMD Hu and Tennis Hu models that have released in the past. With the creative upper designs and the full-length Boost midsoles, these Hu Trails are sure to be a hot commodity.
adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2
Release Date: November/December 2017
What a surprise, there are Yeezys on this list. The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 are one of the most popular shoes of 2017, with numerous colourways that released throughout the year. In November and December, we can expect to see three new colourways of the model drop: the Semi-Frozen Yellow, the Beluga 2.0, and the Blue Tint.
Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red”
Release Date: December 2017
Once thought to be a Player Exclusive for Jordan Brand athlete Carmelo Anthony, the Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red” is set to release in Holiday 2017. The Air Jordan 11 is one of the most popular models in the Jordan Brand catalogue with its patent leather mudguard and transparent outsoles.
adidas Consortium x A Ma Maniére x Invincible Ultra Boost
Release Date: December 2017
In 2017, adidas started the Sneaker Exchange program with its Consortium accounts and allowed two retailers to collaborate on an original concept. The last Sneaker Exchange project of the year is by Atlanta’s A Ma Maniére and Taiwan’s Invincible. Their iteration of the Ultra Boost features an all-white merino wool cageless upper with leather detailing and textured stripes on the midfoot.
Vans x Fear of God
Release Date: Holiday 2017
Jerry Lorenzo has created an empire with his brands, Fear of God and FOG. His past collaboration with Vans is still one of the most sought after Vans of all-time, and this upcoming release will be in the same realm. There will be two colourways of the classic Vans Authentic, two colourways of the lesser known Vans #147, and the Vans Mountain Edition in this upcoming collection.
Nike Air VaporMax Grey “Multicolour”
Release Date: Late 2017
With limited availability during this year’s Air Max Day, many people were not able to get their hands on the Air Max Day NikeID exclusive multicolour design of the Nike Air VaporMax. Nike is making it up to those who missed out with the upcoming iteration of the Air VaporMax “Multicolour”, set to release in late 2017. There are minor differences from the Air Max Day design, but the multicolour Flyknit upper still makes this model highly desirable.
