Last week in the sneaker world was an absolute thrill ride, thanks to NIKE, Inc. and their mind-blowing collection of both timeless and cutting-edge designs. Leading the pack was the spectacular debut of the Air Jordan 38, accompanied by revamped versions of the Air Jordan 11, Nike Terminator High, and Nike Kobe 6. But the pièce de résistance from the Oregon-based conglomerate was undeniably the Nike Refurbished program, which set the sneaker community ablaze on social media. If you’re on the hunt for top-tier kicks at unbeatable prices, the Nike Refurbished platform is your holy grail, but be warned, these products vanish quicker than a flash sale on Cyber Monday.
While all eyes were focused on the swoosh, New Balance and adidas also managed to surprise and delight sneaker enthusiasts with their own exciting endeavors. The Three Stripes captivated our attention with an awe-inspiring footwear collection inspired by Marvel’s “Spider-Man 2” video game for PlayStation 5. On the other hand, New Balance may not have teamed up with superheroes, but they did give us a sneak peek at their upcoming collaborations with MIU MIU, AURALEE, and the incredibly stylish Jaden Smith’s MSFTSrep clothing line. Who needs a literal superhero when you can rock a pair of sleek kicks?
