The month of love gets a fitting opening with the Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low.
While the Valentine’s Day themes stop there, the stellar lineup of footwear drops dominated by Nike ensures February opens with a bang.
Countless leaks and reports online suggest an exciting month of February ahead for sneakerheads. This week alone, we’re getting two variations of the Dunk Low and Air Jordan 1. The unique Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low will likely be at the top of many SBheads’ wishlist. But the Air Jordan 1 Reverse Bred might just edge it as the most covetable upcoming drop. That’s not to say the options are limited to just the two pairs this week. Check out the full list below which also includes the Air Jordan 1 Mid Pine Green and Nike Dunk Low Plum scheduled to drop this week.
Air Jordan 1 Mid Pine Green
Another version of the Air Jordan 1 Mid Pine Green is set to land this Thursday, February 6. The upcoming iteration features an almost identical color scheme to the high-top colorway which launched in 2018 albeit with some differences. The “Bred Toe” style colorblock remains but the colors on the Swoosh and ankle overlays are switched up this time. Plus, these upcoming mids will also come with a red Wings label instead and a matching Jumpman logo on the tongue tabs, replacing the green “Nike Air” tab seen on the high-tops. Definitely worth a cop if you think you can’t snap up the next Air Jordan 1 High Pine Green slated to drop later in the month.
Where to buy:
Nike Dunk Low Plum
The Dunk Low’s revival could well enter full gear in 2020. The signs have been there, from the reissue of the Viotech colorway and the updated Raygun Dunk Lows. This year, the pattern continues with a like-for-like reissue of the Plum Dunk Low from 2001’s Ugly Duckling pack. The Japan-exclusive original which features plum-colored premium suede uppers and barn red accents will make a comeback worldwide this Friday, February 7. If you’ve waited almost two decades for this pair, then this chance is one to grab.
Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro
The legendary Sean Cliver teams up with Nike SB to deliver a Valentine’s Day-themed skate shoe under his label Strangelove. If skate decks can be classed as works of art, then the Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro could well be considered a fine masterpiece. And it’s not just for the seamless and stunning blend of pink and red hues, but also the soft velvet construction paired with premium suede across the uppers. The theme continues with Cliver’s illustrations in the form of a burst of hearts on the outsoles, his label’s heart skull logo on the heels, and further illustrations on the insoles. Cupid works in mysterious ways but for skateboarders, this might just be the kind of love that will not require Cupid’s arrow.
Air Jordan 1 Hi 85 Varsity Red
Jordan Brand pays homage to the Air Jordan 1 in the most ideal way possible 35 years since its arrival – by going back to where it all started with the now-iconic black and red colors. Michael Jordan and his reign at the Chicago Bulls have truly cemented the Bred colorway’s legendary status. And to honor it, Jordan Brand has lined up an all-new Varsity Red or Reverse Bred colorway reworked to follow the sneaker’s original shape from 1985, even down to the slightly higher cut as well. Truly one for the collectors and massive fans of the Air Jordan 1.
