This week’s Heat Check releases feature Nike and Off-white collaborating to bring us yet another exclusive, highly anticipated release. Nike is also releasing a new concept of the iconic Air Force 1 with Adidas giving us yet another Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost release. Jordan brand is also bringing back combo packs, featuring a special Converse Chuck Taylor “Why Not” Air Jordan inspired concept.
Off White x Nike Rubber Dunk Green Strike
We’re starting off the Heat Check with a new Off White and Nike collaboration. The official color-way for this sneaker is black/white and strike green. The Off White x Nike Dunk Green Strike is among one of three different colorways for the Air Rubber Dunk silhouette by Virgil Abloh. This concept was first revealed during New York Fashion Week in February 2020. Aside from the signature Off-White zip-tie, branding laces and orange tags, this shoe keeps the basic design of any Nike dunk model, while incorporating the upper overlay of the Nike P-6000. Releasing on October 1, these shoes are currently retailing at $190, but can be picked up from distributers like stockX with prices varying by size.
Nike Air Force 1 Low Peace, Love and Basketball
The official color way for this AF1 model is speed yellow, black and laser blue. This shoe shows harmony between simplicity and flare. The upper for this shoe is “speed yellow” featuring a matte black Nike Swoosh with laser blue stitching. With the laces, midsole, and sole being featured in white, you see glimpses of lavender. Near the toe-box, you can also see a smaller laser blue dripping Nike check. Releasing on October 1, these shoes are retailing for $100. They are available for purchase on sites like stockX right now, prices varying with size.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Carbon
The official color way for this Yeezy Boost 350 is Asriel/Asriel and Asriel. The prime knit makeup of this shoe is featured in different shades of black and grey (“Asriel”) on the shoe’s upper. A solid black stripe goes across the middle of the shoe and black lacing. The sole of this Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 is translucent with signature boost cushioning rounding out the shape of the model as a whole. These sneakers are going to release on October 2 for a retail price of $220. The shoe is currently on the StockX website right now with prices differentiating for each size.
Jordan Why Not x Converse Pack
The official color way for this pack is black and white. These silhouettes, which are Russell Westbrook’s favorites, are featured in a style relating to his gritty and tough play on the court. The design is attributed to his style and fashion influence off the court. The chain design on both shoes’ uppers resemble the typical chain nets on street courts. Both of these versatile sneakers show many different materials and textures like leather, satin, rubber, and others to resemble a sort of old school rock and roll approach, much like the leather biker jackets you may see Russell styling. These shoes are going to release on October 2 for a retail price of $425 and can be purchased right now on sneaker sites like StockX for different prices and sizes .
