Welcome to SNX DLX, your weekly roundup of the best sneakers to hit the internet. The holiday season is about to come to a close so if you still haven’t picked up a pair of kicks for the favorite sneakerhead in your life, you’re in luck — the brands are going big this week in a last-ditch effort to drop some great shoes (and gobble your holiday cash).
Now, nothing dropping this week is going to break the internet but Nike and New Balance are dropping some big-name collaborations before the holiday weekend hits with new shoes from Stüssy, Salehe Bembury, A-COLD-WALL, and of course, Jordan Brand. Given the sort of output we’re used to at this time of year, it’s actually pretty surprising how many notable drops are coming our way, I guess you could even say it’s a Christmas miracle!
After you scan these shoes make sure you hit up our Ultimate Sneakerhead and Ultimate Streetwear gift guides for some last-minute gifts if your holiday shopping list still has a bunch of names on it that haven’t been crossed off. Let’s dive in!
Air Jordan 7 Neutral Indigo and Bright Crimson
Given everyone’s focus on the holiday weekend, this bold-colored Jordan 7 is dropping under the radar, which means it’s probably the easiest Jordan to cop all year. Inspired by the colorway worn by MJ during his ’92 season, the Neutral Indigo and Bright Crimson Jordan 7 features a premium leather upper and drops in a full-size run.
Get it before anyone notices it’s out there!
The Air Jordan 7 Neutral Indigo and Bright Crimson is out now for a retail price of $225. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app.
Converse x A-COLD-WALL Geo Forma Boot
Samuel Ross’ luxury brand A-COLD-WALL is linking up with Converse for Geo Forma Boot drop in two colorways. Featuring stretch bootie construction, this futuristic boot sports a zip-up shroud, a platform outsole, and a minimalist design that looks unlike anything you’d find in the typical winter boot aesthetics.
The Colorways include a snowy all-white version and a bolder black and neon green makeup with louder branding.
The Converse x A-COLD-WALL Geo Forma Boot is out now for a retail price of $150. Pick up a pair via the Nike SNKRS app or your favorite aftermarket sites.
Salehe Bembury x New Balance MADE in USA 990v2 Misty Rose with Terra Cotta and Purple Passion
If you missed last week’s super limited Salehe Bembury x New Balance drop, it’s getting an official release through New Balance that should be considerably easier to cop. Built on the v2 iteration of the 990 silhouette, this sneaker features a mesh upper with premium hairy suede overlays and is inspired by the coral-pink sand dunes of southwestern Utah.
Over an ABZORB midsole, this Salehe Bembury-designed sneaker features reflective details at the vamp, a fingerprint heel window that recalls Bembury’s Crocs collaboration and a Chenille N logo.
The Salehe Bembury x New Balance MADE in USA 990v2 Misty Rose with Terra Cotta and Purple Passion is set to drop on December 22nd at 7 AM PST for a retail price of $199.99. Pick up a pair at New Balance.
