Every year it seems as if more brands try to take advantage of Black Friday by having releases, and this year was no different. Hosting a plethora of releases, this Black Friday is sure to host a number of sleepers, as even the best sneaker hunters can’t be in four places at once.
The Jordan Brand gave us a brand new look to the retro 5 model. Dubbed the Oreo by many, the Oreo name is derived from the black speckle print on the midsole similar to the Oreo 6. Consisting mostly of a black suede upper and a strong lining of white, the clean color scheme will make this a desirable shoe for years to come.
If you skipped on the Jordan release, it could be because you were out in line trying to get the new collaboration between Nike SB and Primitive, with the help of Clark Kent of course. The 112 does well to stay true to the original inspirations of Clark Kent’s previous releases. This time around Clark puts his fingerprints on a Dunk Low, P-Rod 7 high, and a P-Rod 7 Hyperfuse Max. The dunk is turning out to be the most sought after of the pack boasting neon laces, cement print heel, premium suede tongue, and a body mostly covered in 3M.
While those two releases were pretty limited, Black Friday continued to pump out even more limited releases. One of those were the New Balance 1600 designed by Ronnie Fieg. The Daytona’s were released at 6 AM in NYC and 11 AM online, but was an immediate “sell out” lasting less than a minute online. Stay tuned for the arrival of these gems shortly. Finally one of my favorite releases were the Sneaker Freaker x Puma Blaze of Glory release. Marking a 5 year anniversary since the original release, a small number of boutiques restocked with the black and grey combo.
