Starting this Friday, there are many good releases coming to the sneaker world. With the Adidas NMD ‘Datamosh’ pack and Air Jordan IV ‘Pure Money’ releasing on the weekend, and then the ‘Metallic Red’ Foamposites and Nike Flyknit Racer ‘Macaroon’ pack releasing at the end of next week, hype should be high.

ADIDAS NMD R1 PK “DATAMOSH” 05.12.17 $180

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen the popular Adidas NMD model in this form – the full Primeknit upper without any stripes at the midfoot. Sneakernstuff is bringing forth two store-exclusive colorways dubbed the “Datamosh” Pack, which features a wild graphic on the upper that appears like distorted images on the screen. Sneakersnstuff teased images of both pairs months ago, promising a release only at their stores. Both colorways of the adidas NMD “Datamosh” Pack release on May 12 exclusively at Sneakersnstuff retailers for $180.

Who doesn’t need a pair of fresh and crisp all-white Air Jordans for summer? The “Pure Money” Air Jordan 4 is back at the perfect time, ready to set off your summer sneaker rotation in just the right way with the bright white leather upper and shiny chrome accents. The all-white Air Jordan 4 Retro was a hit back in 2007 during its original release, which explains why this Saturday’s official drop is highly anticipated by Jordan fans everywhere. These clean sneaks will be available for $190 via Nike and select retailers.

NIKE AIR MAX 97 “METALLIC GOLD” 05.18.17 $160

Bryce Air Max 97 metallic gold

Air Max Day was over a month ago, but the big-bubbled releases are just getting started in 2017. The Air Max 97 is back in full force this year, dropping in not only the iconic “Silver Bullet” colorway hitting US retailers on April 15th, but in another fan-favorite look from the past, the metallic gold edition. Not released since 2010, the all-gold colorway was available on April 20th in Europe. This edition of the 97 is slated to release on May 18th for $160 via Nike SNKRS and select retailers.



Along with the return of the iconic OG “Royal” Nike Air Foamposite One and the beloved “Copper” colorway already this year, another favorite look for the shoe is coming back to celebrate its 20th anniversary. It’s the “Metallic Red” colorway originally from 2012 that’s set for a return, reproduced in the exact same shiny red hue for the Foamposite shell with black accents and an icy sole. Nothing official has been released, but the $230 price tag and release date have been all but confirmed.


Bryce flyknit racer pack

The Flyknit Racer is back in an unusual new inspiration this Spring 2017 season: macaroons. The Nike Flyknit Racer Macaroon Pack features an array of pastel shades on the breathable Flyknit upper ranging from Light Violet, Legion Blue, Ghost Green, and Pink Dust, each taking inspiration from the French dessert with a candy coated array of matching speckles throughout. All 4 colorways of the Flyknit Racer Macaroon Pack will be available this May 19th for $150 each on Nike SNKRS and select retailers.
