12 Sneakers We’re Adding to Our Collection This Month

Let’s just say it’s a good month for sneakers.

Another month, another slew of (really, really good) sneaker releases. From the re-release of the Diamond Supply Co. “Diamond Dunks” to the Kyrie 5 “Taco PE” to LeBron’s “I Promise” Nike, your wallet may just run dry this month. But don’t worry, it’ll be worth it when you have enough sneakers to last you a lifetime. We like to think of them as investments.


Converse x Just Don ERX: Releasing yesterday on JustDon.com and today on Converse.com, this ERX sneaker retails for $150 and we already know it’s going to become a constant in our current rotation. The pony hair gives the sneaker an elevated look while the bright colors make it the right amount of playful.

Nike Kyrie 5 Taco PE: The Kyrie 5 may have just been released, but we’re already seeing new colorways. Travis “Taco” Bennett of Odd Future is behind this version, and he did not disappoint. The sneaker releases on November 16th for $130.

Diamond Supply Co. x Nike SB Dunk Lows: The Diamond Dunk is one of Nike’s most famous sneakers (if you’re not familiar, get the lowdown here), and it’s back this year in three different colorways; black, white, and yellow (only available for friends and family). While the sneaker was meant to drop at ComplexCon, the crowds became too crazy and the booth was shut down. Instead, a Los Angeles pop-up was held on the eighth, and the sneakers were released into the world on the 10th. At this point you’ll have to pick these up on resale.

Asics x Kiko Kostadinov Gel-Delva 1: We’ve been adding more Asics to our closets recently, and it doesn’t look like that will stop anytime soon. This Kiko Kostadinov collab is available in three different colorways and will retail for $285 at Dover Street Market. Sign us up.

Alexander Wang x adidas Skate Super: Alexander Wang figured, why release one sneaker with adidas when he could release seven? Seven, guys. Dropping on the 14th (only one day away!), this Skate Super silhouette is one of our personal faves from the collection. It retails for $220.

Tyler the Creator x Converse Chuck 70: We’ve yet to see a Golf le Fleur Converse that we don’t like. Tyler the Creator’s latest launch with Converse brings a few new materials into play, like this burlap. Naturally, there was a pre-release of these at this past weekend’s Camp Flog Gnaw (Tyler’s annual music festival), and the global release is set for the 15th.

Nike LeBron 16 “I Promise”: LeBron James practically broke the internet back in June when he opened his I Promise school in Ohio. Fast-forward five months, and the legend is releasing a Nike LeBron 16 sneaker adorned with the school’s colors. It will release on the 20th and will retail for $185.

Disney x Vans Authentic: Mickey Mouse turned 90 this year, so it’s no wonder we’re seeing Disney everywhere. Vans is celebrating by way of this cute Mickey Mouse-covered sneaker. They’ll run you $65 and will be available at Vans stores and online.

Reebok Sole Fury: No need to wait for these insanely comfortable-looking sneakers, as they dropped on the eighth with a campaign that included Future, Lil Baby, Conor McGregor, and Nathalie Emmanuel. The neon detail caught our attention immediately, so no doubt we’ll be scooping up a pair (or two). Especially since they’re only $90.

A-Cold-Wall* x Nike Vomero: Releasing November 29th, this A-Cold-Wall* collaboration is nothing short of amazing. We fell in love with it the second we saw it, and now we’re impatiently waiting for the drop (if you’re in the UK, you can get this a little earlier on the 17th). They’ll retail for $200, and we’re more than certain that they’ll quickly become a staple in your wardrobe.

sdidas Originals x Bristol Studio “Crazy BYW”: Bristol Studio’s adidas have been a hit this year, and they’re still coming. These babies will run you $200, are available in both low and high-top, and are dropping in two colorways. They’re calling this the Sharp Shooters collection, and we’re giving them extra points for using both Nubuck leather and knitted textiles on the sneaker.

adidas Originals x Sneakersnstuff “ZX500”: No doubt that Sneakersnstuff has been making waves this year, and they’re clearly not done yet. The ZX500 released November sixth for $140 and is available exclusively at Sneakersnstuff (both online and in-store). It’s the perfect sneaker for pretty much, well, everything.
