24 Sneakers Releasing This Month

Sorry to say it, but you may want to buy them all.

By: Jodi Taylor

Tis the season...of sneakers. 2018 has given us a healthy amount of notable collaborations and drops, and December is looking just as promising. This month we’re being treated to a four-piece Nike x Carhartt collaboration, the Puma Clyde Court Ocean Drive (in Miami colors, naturally), Aleali May’s second Jordan collaboration, and John Geiger’s Art Basel release with Miami’s 24/7 ultra lounge, E11even. One for you, one for me is our MO for last-minute shopping this month.

Aleali May x Air Jordan 1 Court Lux High Top OG: By now, we all know that Aleali May’s Jordan releases are not to be slept on. So plan to grab her second Jordan drop on December 22nd. The suede colorblock sneakers have a detachable faux fur tongue so that they appeal to, well, everyone, and they'll retail for $160.

Maya Moore x Air Jordan 10 Court Lux: Maya Moore’s Jordan 10’s are the other half of the two-pack Jordan collaboration with Aleali May’s aforementioned Jordan 1’s. They are also suede and colorblocked, and drop on the same day, 12/22.

Nike x Carhartt WIP Air Force 1 Low: This AF1 is part of a four-sneaker collaboration with Carhartt and Nike, and it’s one we've been eagerly waiting for. These dropped yesterday (December 6) for $175, so get them while they last.

John Geiger x E11even Art Basel 002: You've probably seen these beautiful sneakers plastered all over the internet—or in Miami, if you’re at Art Basel. While you were sleeping, John Geiger teamed up with Miami’s famous 24/7 E11even ultra lounge for the brand-new colorway of his 002. The sneakers, which have the longitude and latitude of E11even on their side, released last night inside of E11even (obviously) and retailed for $450. They're already sold out, so head to StockX immediately.

sdidas Falcon: Easily one of our top three favorite adidas silhouettes. Now in two new colorways of the Falcon—a gold version and the above. Both dropped yesterday and retail for $100.

Puma Cell Venom: We’ve been seeing this green, white, and blue colorway teased on Instagram for a few weeks now, and we’re so happy that it's now ready to grab (available as of yesterday). The silhouette first launched in the ’90s and, at $110, are a foolproof addition to the collection.

Aimé Leon Dore x Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke: Teddy Santis of Aimé Leon Dore practically broke the internet this week when he shared an image of his Bespoke Nike Air Force 1. The navy, burgundy, green, and mustard-yellow polar fleece material is not only perfect for winter, but it's super easy on the eyes. We’ve yet to get a release date or any pricing info, so we’ll just be over here frequently refreshing the brand’s IG page.

Puma Clyde Court Ocean Drive: While we regret to inform you that the first launch of these happened in Miami this week (did you expect anything less, given the name?), the good news is that you’ll still be able to grab them starting on December 8.

Undefeated x Converse Chuck 70: A cursive "Undefeated" is stitched into the tongue of the L.A. brand's latest collaboration with Converse. The rest of the terrycloth (!) sneaker depicts an orange, black, and red tiger, giving off high school varsity jacket vibes. Retailing for $120, the sneaker will be available starting December 15.

Koio Avalanche Nude: Retailing for $298, Koio’s December release includes a brand-new nude colorway of their Avalanche silhouette. Set to release on the 20th, you already know we're sold.

DMX Daytona Experiment 2 by Pyer Moss: A brand-new colorway came our way this week for the ongoing Pyer Moss and Reebok collaboration. The laces are hidden on this silhouette, giving them a super-clean look, complete with a magnetic tongue clip. They released Tuesday and retail for $200.

PUMA Suede 50 x Swarovski: We love everything to do with crystals, and if they’re on a sneaker, it’s that much better. Releasing December 13, these black Puma suede 50’s will retail for $250 and are guaranteed to help dress up any outfit you wear this season.

CLOT x Air Jordan 13 “Terracotta”: Inspired by ancient Terracotta Warriors, Clot’s collaboration with Jordan is bound to sell out within seconds. The color and design are too good not to fall in love with. They release globally on 12/13 and will run you $200.

Harmony x Asics GEL-Quantum 360: We saw the first release from Harmony and Asics back in October, and the two are back at it again for a second drop this month. Available in both black and white colorways (we're partial to both), the GEL-Quantum 360 will be releasing on the 8th.

Air Jordan 11 “Concord”: The last release of this Jordan was in 2011, so you can imagine our excitement that the silhouette is finally making a comeback on December 8. They'll retail for $220, and this version has a larger patent mudguard than the last. Get your hands on a pair, or 10.

Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe: It’s finally here. Soon, anyway. Releasing on December 11, the Tom Sachs Overshoe has been highly anticipated. We all saw how well the NikeCraft Mars Yard 2.0 sneaker did when it released last year. This shoe is nicknamed the “March Shoe” since March is such a wet month. Grab it for $550 so you can stay dry year-round.

MadeMe x Converse One Star Lift: Not only do we love a one star, but we also love a little bit of lift (because why not?). MadeMe caught our eye with their latest Converse collaboration, which features two One Star silhouettes and a handful of clothing. With the sneakers retailing at only $110, the entire collection went on sale December 8.

Reebok Run.r 96: We’ve made it quite clear that we’re fans of Reebok’s Run.r 96 silhouette, so as you can imagine, we were more than happy to see it being released in a new colorway earlier this week. Retailing for $220, this black, white, grey, and red colorway has a super-clean look to it.

Nike VaporMax 2019: Nike is calling this the “lightest and most flexible Air Max to date,” and we’re all ears. We already find the VaporMax to be one of the cushiest and comfiest sneakers around, so we really can't find a reason as to why we wouldn't scoop up a pair on December 20. They'll retail for $190.

Air Jordan 3 Mocha: Releasing December 15 in both men’s and women’s sizing, it’s been seven years since this Jordan first launched in 2001. It's a sleek aesthetic, like no other. Retail is $190.

Air Jordan 1 “A Star Is Born”: While your mind may automatically go to Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born film, this Jordan is actually inspired by the Sports Illustrated December 10, 1984 cover where Michael Jordan played against the Milwaukee Bucks (when he was playing for the Chicago Bulls). Releasing on the 27th for $160, the story alone proves that this is a sneaker to add to your closet.

Nike Air Max Dia: This sneaker has the biggest air bag in a women’s Air Max, ever. Retailing for $120, the sneaker is dropping on the 27th in its first colorway, with another one to follow in the new year. We're suckers for new technology, so sign us up.

Local Authority All White Low Top: There's a new sneaker in town, and it's available exclusively at Maxfield. Manufactured in Italy, this clean and white silhouette is the brainchild of L.A. brand Local Authority and luxury footwear designer Mike McGlaflin. The Napa leather sneaker will be available on December 13 both online and in-store for $545.

Asics GT 2000: Forever fans of Asics, we’re looking forward to the release of their GT 2000 this month. Our advice: Wear it as more than a workout shoe, and play around with it for your day-to-day looks—you’ll be surprised with how well it goes with your favorite skirt. The GT 2000 will retail for $120.
