Nike Energy Week 2020 is happening from October 19 to 25. Why should you care? Energy Week offers daily deals of up to 50% off and sees some of 2020’s hottest sneakers and collabs re-released. Gear up and prep your Nike members account because it’s going to be intense seven days. Here are the top five sneakers to cop during Nike Energy Week 2020.
Sean Cliver’s Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low caused quite a stir when it first dropped back in February. The sneaker’s perfect blend of pink, red and white in velvet and premium suede really set the sneaker apart. The outsole bares an illustration of a bursting heart by Cliver, completing the Valentine theme.
Missed out on the Off-White x Nike Rubber Dunk “University Blue” that dropped on October 1? On October 19, Nike will be dropping the “University Gold” colorway of these Frankenstein Dunks. A cross between the P6000, Air Max 1 and Dunk, these kicks are loud, to say the least. Paired with a bright gold upper and black outsole, these sneakers will turn heads.
In April, Jerry Lorenzo released the referee friendly Air Fear of God 1 “Off Noir” in a triple black colorway. The “Off Noir” saw Jerry Lorenzo perfectly blending luxury styling and performance, creating a comfortable sneaker to rock on and off court.
Among all the re-releases, one sneaker really stood out—the Air Jordan 11 “Bred”. These coveted kicks had a restock back in 2019, sporting an accurate recreation of the AJ11s Michael Jordan wore in his first game back from retirement. This includes an identical combination of black mesh, patent leather, white midsole and red translucent outsole.
To round off the list is the Air Jordan 1 Hi 85, Nike’s closest recreation to the original Air Jordan 1 released in 1989. Beyond paneling, shape, construction and materials used to make the sneaker, Nike also replicated the hangtag. Yes, the iconic hangtag of MJ mid-flight in front of the Chicago skyline. Just like before, these sneakers will come with a dust bag that is numbered, upping the exclusivity of the sneaker. Only 23,000 pairs of these kicks have ever been made.
