5 Sneakers You Need to Look Out for on Black Friday Weekend

Date: November 13 2019

By: Boon Mark Souphanh


For sneakerheads, Christmas comes a little earlier each year thanks to the madness that is the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. There’s no doubt that it’s one of the best times of the year to cop under-retail creps, with retailers throwing the sale sticker on most of their inventory.

While many of you will be looking to cop GR gems, and drops filed in the ‘maybe’ pile, there will be others looking to try their hand at scoring some freshly released heat.

These definitely won’t be sitting in the clearance section… Here’s five Black Friday releases you should keep your eye on this Black Friday.

Nike Air Foamposite One Shattered Backboard 314996 013 Release Pair

Nike Air Foamposite One 'Shattered Backboard'   

We may have just seen the 'Shattered Backboard 3.0' Air Jordan 1, but that hasn't stopped Nike from prepping another addition to the 'Shattered Backboard' lineup.

Dropping days out from Black Friday, you could get lucky and score these for under-retail just after release if things go your way – you just have to hope they don't sell out!

Slam Jam x Nike Blazer Mid 'Class 1977'

Slam Jam’s highly anticipated black Nike Blazer arrives sooner than expected, hitting shelves on Black Friday. If you ask us – this will probably be one of most sought-after drops of the entire weekend.

About 2000 pairs were already raffled off back on November 9, but you can expect more units to hit Nike’s SNKRS/SNEAKRS app and Slam Jam on November 29.

UNDERCOVER x Nike Air Max 720

We thought we were going to get Nike’s latest link up with Japanese label UNDERCOVER during Halloween, but the brands seem to have had a change of heart. Thankfully, it looks like this big-bubbled beauty is going to emerge from the darkness during Black Friday weekend.

Perhaps one of Jun Takahashi’s more under-the-radar designs in recent times, the UNDERCOVER x Nike Air Max 720 could find its way into your cart easier than expected come November 30.

Nike Kobe 4 Protro Wizenard Cv3469 001 Release Date 4 Pair

Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro 'Wizenard'

Sunday is meant to be a day of rest, but that doesn’t mean you got to stop coppin’.

Get the new season on the hardwood started on the right foot with the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro ‘Wizenard’. Based on the front cover of Kobe Bryant’s book by the same name, it’s without a doubt the most eye-catching court crep releasing on the weekend. 

Star Wars Adidas Nite Jogger R2 D2 Fv8040 Release Date

Star Wars x adidas Nite Jogger ‘R2-D2’

If you’re not keen on any of the Cyber Monday steals on offer, there’s a pair from a galaxy far, far away that’s also dropping.

The Star Wars x adidas Nite Jogger ‘R2-D2’ is just one of the models releasing as part of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hype train, but early signs suggest it’s going to be the most popular colourway of the bunch.

This is most likely the droid you’re looking for!
