Before you get excited over February’s list of rumored drops, we’ve got one last week of releases to cap off January’s strong showing. Topping the list has to be the striking women’s exclusive Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey. Also joining the multi-brand footwear drops this week are collaborations between Converse and END as well as Adidas’ new range with fashion designer Craig Green. Nike’s hybrid tooling also makes a comeback featuring the Air Vapormax 360. Check out the full list below.
Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey
Classic detailing meets striking visuals with the upcoming Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey. This women’s exclusive rendition features reflective 3M uppers similar to the Air Jordan 1 Zoom drop late last year. But instead of blacked-out uppers, the signature model arrives in a petrol blue colorway with a matte finish that gives off a holographic silver glow when it hits the light. Need a standout pair this year? Look no further.
Nike Air Vapormax 360
For years, Nike has kept its lineup of sneakers fresh with hybrid renditions. More often than not, these hybrid releases turn imagination into reality by merging eras and revolutionary tech together in one sneaker. This time, Nike combines the legendary Air Max 360 with new cushioning — the game-changing Vapormax soles. And not just any cushioning either. Definitely a collector’s pair featuring two poignant eras.
Adidas x Craig Green
Adidas and award-winning British designer Craig Green have teamed up for a footwear range titled Kontuur. The collection aptly features pressed outlines that seamlessly mold into the design details. Craig Green’s attention to detail is heavily represented in the collaboration, with textures being
a key highlight. The two-sneaker collection comprises the Kontuur I, an all-textile Adidas Kamada silhouette, while the Kontuur II represents an entirely suede Adidas Ozweego makeover.

Converse x END “Blueprint”
END turns to Converse’s classic sneakers to commemorate the original plans for its flagship London store. The multi-brand retailer literally took the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell back to the drawing board with linear graphics splashed across the nubuck leather and 12oz canvas uppers. Further details include green rubber outsoles and insoles with lines inspired by a designer’s cutting board. Converse sneakers have long been a vehicle and canvas for storytelling. And this fresh collaboration presents yet another page added to the brand’s storied history.
