4.3 Weekly Round-Up

Welcome to this week’s Weekly Roundup and Happy Easter to all! This week was a little light on the release calendar but SNKRS, Nike, and Undefeated did make the week a little interesting with a few surprise releases. The Jordan 6 Carmine hit SNKRS randomly and Undefeated and Nike rereleased the Undefeated Kobe 4 Pack on Friday and had us all scrambling to grab at least one of these.

Nike has continued to retro a few classic runners lately and this week, we got a chance to add another to our closets. The Air Structure Triax 91 returned this weekend for the first time since 2008 to celebrate its’ 30th anniversary. The colorway released is known for its’ mismatched lateral and medial accents. Nike running also released the latest Skepta collab overseas this past weekend. The Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind 5 hit retailers overseas on Friday and didn’t sit long at all. The solid blue colorway of the Air Max Tailwind 5 is accented with a black cage, clean chrome detailing, and Skepta detailing on the tongue and insole. This shoe originally released back in the year 2000 and adding the Skepta twist, this shoe is perfect for that relaxed summer vacation that’s coming up.

Jordan Brand usually gives us some nice heat to wear for the holidays and this year, that didn’t change. The Air Jordan 9 “Change the World” hit retailers earlier in the week and started the week off for many right. This mismatched pair features a white upper with black detailing. The left shoe has hits of purple, yellow, blue. While the right, has shades of red and orange throughout. We also got a Easter appropriate Jordan Retro 12 Low this past week. The “Lagoon Pulse” 12 Low is very simple but effective. This sneaker sports a clean white upper with a pastel blue sole. The branding hits are very subtle but this entire shoe is that: clean, calm, and cool.

A light week in the sneaker world but the release calendar continues to get heavier and heavier. Stay tuned for a few pop up drops and random releases with the summer right around the corner and collabs hitting the calendar every week. As always, good hunting and continue to rise, grind and buy sneakers.
