You aren’t the only kid out there whose holiday gift list is littered with sneakers. Every year, from Black Friday on through the month of December, the sneaker releases from brands like Jordan, Nike, adidas, and Under Armour come fast and furious and even the best of us normally can’t keep up. This year saw the return of the “Aqua” Air Jordan VIII on Black Friday and as big as that day has become for sneakerheads around the country, December is going to be even crazier.
This holiday, the Jordan Brand is dropping a number of classic and new colorways on some of their biggest models–from the “Chrome” edition of the Jordan VIII to a new colorway for the Air Jordan XI that figures to be an instant classic. Those aren’t the only hot shoes this month, however. Kevin Durant is returning with one of his best sneaker colorways yet. Derrick Rose‘s holiday sneakers are also making an appearance. And then there is a new pack for the “XENO” ZX Flux from adidas, a design that launched earlier this year and is coming back in three new colorways.
In the latest installment of The Prequel, we’re breaking down all of the holiday kicks that need to be on your radar. From the retros to the athleisure joints to what players should be wearing on the court, all of these drops deserve your attention. These are the 7 December Sneaker Releases That You Can’t Miss. Heat up the winter with these joints.
