The Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” Is Back

The Air Jordan 6 "Carmine" Is Back

For the second time since 1991, the ‘Carmine’ Air Jordan 6 is being retroed as a standalone shoe. The last time the Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine,’ Kanye was still at Nike, and the Red Octobers just dropped.

Michael Jordan wore the shoe nicknamed after the deep red hues it bears during the first half of the 1991-1992 NBA season after winning the Championship sporting the Air Jordan 6 Infrared. Note that this year is the 30th anniversary of this colorway, and the last time the Jumpman released this colorway was its 23rd anniversary. The Carmine features the mythical red and white upper with black on the midsole, tongue, and pull tab.

Unlike the 2014 release, this release will feature the Nike Air on the heel for the time since the ’91 drop. The sneakers will release on February 13th, 2021, for CA$265.

Paris Saint-Germain x Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Comfort

In 2018, Paris Saint-Germain, a French football club, and Jordan Brand reached an agreement to market training, performance, and lifestyle products. Since then, the two have released apparel, pairs of Air Jordan 4 & 5, and many other products. They are back again this week with a fresh pair of the Zoom Comfort variant of the Air Jordan 1. The pair is releasing on February 17th on SNRKS CA at CA$190. We expect this pair to release quickly although it is dropping at the same time as the AMBUSH x Dunk High Cosmic Fuschia.

Dunk High Vast Grey

Teased mid-December of 2020, the Dunk High Vast Grey was supposed to drop on January 14th but was later postponed. Just like the silhouette’s most beloved colorways, the Vast Grey features a plain white base, with panels around the foot, tongue, and throughout the heel features Nike’s Vast Grey color. The two-tone Dunk High is set to release on February 18th on Footlocker CA.

UPDATE: Footlocker CA pushed the release to March 5th.

WMNS Dunk High Football Grey

The WMNS Dunk High Football Grey is part of the Dunk releases Nike revealed in December 2020. This colorway is a Women’s exclusive that was released in Europe and Asia on January 14th but was postponed on the week of by North American retailers. A month later, the colorway is finally getting released in North America at CA$145. Sneakerheads in Canada can purchase the pair on Footlocker’s website.

Dunk Low Hyper Cobalt

36 years ago, Nike released the first pair of Dunk Low, and since, it has become one of the most desired sneakers in the world. In the last two years, we have seen interest in the Dunk silhouette we haven’t seen since the 2000s. The Hyper Cobalt colorway features a Black base and is overlaid with Hyper Cobalt panels reminiscing of the Air Jordan 1 Royal. The pair will release on February 18th on Footlocker CA at CA$135.

UPDATE: FootLocker CA pushed the release to March 4th.

Dunk Low SP UNLV (2021)

Sporting the same colorway as the OFF-WHITE x Dunk Low University Red, the Dunk Low UNLV references the “Be True To Your School” pack released in 1985. The colorway has been tweaked throughout the decades but it still close to the original colorway aside from the low-top frame. The pair is set to release on February 18th at CA$135 on Footlocker.

WMNS Dunk Low Coast

In honor of the Bruins, many of the overlays are dyed the titular “Coast,” a shade somewhat reminiscent of UNC’s more prolific “University Blue.” Laces, threads, Swooshes, and the like follow suit in the bright accent, while the midsole and leather underlayer dress white to more accurately mirror the two-toned schemes of the aforementioned Elsewhere, the woven label atop the tongue as well as the “Nike” embroidery at the heel tab round off the tribute with a light touch of gold. These sneakers will release on February 18th at CA$135 on Footlocker.

Air Jordan 3 Cool Grey (2021)

Re-releasing for the first time ever, this retro AJ3 returns with true-to-form coloring and upgraded materials. With hits of Sport Red and Orange Peel on the tongue, eyelets, Airbag, and heel tab, the upgraded construction features a genuine leather upper, matte-finished midsole, and elephant-print overlays on the forefoot and heel. The pair is set to release on February 20th on SNKRS CA and Footlocker at CA$245.

WMNS Air Jordan 1 High OG Silver Toe

Due most in part to its simplicity, the “Silver Toe” has garnered quite a bit of buzz leading up to its launch. In terms of design, the colorway strikes a good balance between new and old, tweaking offerings like the “Bred Toe” with layers of silver metallic. These luxe finishes treat the toe, ankle flap, and counter, while the overlays and unders lean on the familiar in white and black, respectively. The pair is set to release on February 19th on Footlocker at CA$220.

adidas Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite

The newest Yeezy 700 v3 to be welcomed is the brand new makeup entitled the “Kyanite”. For those who aren’t experts in geology, if you google search its moniker you’ll find that the search results populate an aluminosilicate mineral rock that has a marbled blue-white aesthetic. And you’ll realize that the name, in this case, makes perfect sense for why this particular iteration is styled in the way that it is. The pair is set to release on February 19th on Footlocker at CA$260.

Legends Don’t Die

Legends Never Die

2020 has been a great year for Nike Dunk’s fanatics. Many good releases came out, and so many people who held on to their pairs during the Dunks heyday got to cash out in the process. As bad as 2020 was to most people, it has been a good year for sneakerheads (and NXTDROP tbh).

In our latest episode, we took a closer look at the Bodega x Dunk High Legend collaboration. I have to be honest; I did not think the shoes were nice the first time I saw them online. It was just too much for me, and I didn’t like the stitch detailing at all. But to my surprise, I had a very different reaction when I got to see them in person and touch and feel them. I was 1000% wrong about the shoe, the detailing may be too much, but the raw material feels too good. One thing I have learned this year is that pictures don’t do justice to sneakers. I’ve hated the Union LA x Air Jordan 4 when they revealed the pair. But that’s a discussion for another day.

It may or may not be tough to find something to wear these shoes with, depending on your style, but I believe these pairs are worth purchasing. I like when the collaborators decide to go the extra mile and bring in new materials. It gives a breath of fresh air to the sneakers. Anyone can take a shoe and change the color palette, but to take the current product and add your sauce to it creates something magic like this. The creators at Bodega have been doing this for more than a decade now. They are legends in the industry. Big shout out to the whole team at Bodega.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Kobe Bryant wearing the Kobe Grinch

On the morning of January, 26th 2020, NBA fans all around the world were in shock when they learned that the basketball legend, Kobe Bryant, had passed away. It felt unreal and a year later, the feelings the same. Kobe’s death marked the beginning of the horror movie 2020 was for most people and resulted in his signature shoe gaining more notoriety. Most of the Kobe’s that released in 2020 sold out immediately as fans were showing their respects to the legend.

On Christmas Day for the first time since 2010, the Kobe Protro Grinch retroed. We were all introduced to the Kobe Grinch on the same day 10 years ago during a game between the Lakers and the Miami with a young LeBron just acquired during the off-season. Kobe won his 5th and last ring the previous season and stepped on the hardwood with lime green sneakers inspired by the green mamba snake. It was until later that sneaker blogs and sneakerheads renamed it the “Grinch” for its resemblance to the character created by Dr. Seuss.

The infamous Kobe 6 Protro Grinch was released on Christmas 2020 at CA$230. It is currently retailing between CA$400 and CA$700.

If you’re still looking to purchase in Canada, please visit our marketplace on nxtdrop.com. You can buy and sell this pair on the website and soon on our mobile app. Stay tuned.

When K-Pop Meets the Sneaker World

When K-Pop Meets the Sneaker World

K-Pop star G-Dragon’s fashion label, PEACEMINUSONE, and Nike teamed once again in 2020 to release an exclusive pair of Air Force 1. G-Dragon, best-known for his musical career as a member of Big Bang, ventured into fashion and founded PEACEMINUSONE in 2016, and their products have been selling out at the speed of light.

PEACEMINUSONE and Nike first teamed in 2019, and they released two pairs to the general public. Both featured a black leather upper, but the Korea Exclusive featured a red Swoosh instead of the white on the global release. A Friends & Family variant also came out with a yellow Swoosh.

The Para-Noise 2.0 features the same color scheme as its predecessor. However, white leather replaced the black leather, and the white Swoosh was replaced with a black one. Like the first Para-Noise, the upper features a paint layer that wears away over time to reveal artwork designed by G-Dragon. The shoes came with an extra set of white laces, and the midsole and sole are dressed all over with strokes of black paint.

The Para-Noise 2.0 retailed on November 25th, 2020, at CA$260. The pair sold out but is still available on NXTDROP. Click Here To Purchase Them Now.

With many outstanding releases scheduled this year, the Air Jordan 1 is gunning for the #1 spot in 2021. Rumors of this drop started last year, and Nike finally announced the release last week. Fans of the OG form of the Air Jordan 1 are waiting for this drop, so we anticipate that it will sell out quickly. And to add to it, the release is said to be limited to 23,000 pairs worldwide.

Thirty-Five years ago, the Air Jordan 1 first hit the shelves changing the footwear game forever. Since 1985, this silhouette is one of the most recognizable shoes in the world. The OG colorway is coming back this month with retro packaging, including an individually numbered dustbag and a throwback hangtag depicting MJ soaring above the Chicago skyline.

The shoe will release on February 10th, 2021, for CA$265. Mark your calendars.

Yeezy 700 v3 Azareth Dropping This Week

adidas Yeezy 700 v3 Azareth

For its last August drop, Yeezy is releasing a new pair of the 700 v3 silhouette. Rather than keeping this drop exclusive to adidas and Yeezy Supply, this release is much more widespread delivery.

Arguably the silhouette’s cleanest colorway to-date, this design iteration is highlighted by its futuristic-like upper that stands out due to the nature of its sporty blue wavy design lines that lie beneath the translucent RPU cages. When first charged up in the light, the translucent RPU cages have capabilities of glowing in the dark.

Sizes for the whole family will make their way to the shelves on August 29th at the retailers listed below, Yeezy Supply, and the new-and-improved adidas Confirmed app. If you were looking to cop a pair of Yeezy 700 v3, this colorway is the one.

UNION LA & Jordan Collaborate On A Four-Shoe Collection

UNION LA x Jordan Brand

West coast boutique UNION LA and Jordan Brand are back together after releasing two colorways of the Air Jordan 1 back in 2018. For Fall/Winter ’20, the imprint is following up with not just two but four different pairs for release on August 29th. From their duo of Air Jordan 4s to their Jordan Zoom 92 and Jordan Delta Mid, the “Sophomore Album” as they call it delivers a theme still retro-inspired.

The most anticipated pairs of the entire are the two Air Jordan 4s colorways. The “Off Noir” colorway features the same palettes of black, white, red, and blue as the UNION LA x Air Jordan 1 Blue Toe. Complementing this colorway is the “Guava Ice” colorway taking the same color pattern replacing the black, white, red, and blue with blue, pink, and vintage yellowing on the midsole. While the color palettes are impressive, the details are far more impressive as the tongue is loosely stitched down for a shorter look.

The Jordan Delta Mid borrows its color palette from the UNION LA x AJ4 “Off Noir” while the Jordan Zoom 92 borrows his from the UNION LA x AJ4 “Guava Ice.” The complete is scheduled to drop on August 29th on the boutique’s website.
