Sneaker Release Schedule: Top drops for the month of December

Andy Silva provides a look at some of the latest and greatest kicks to hit retail for the month of December.

Christmas is almost here and some gifts will come down the chimney this week for all the good sneakerheads out there.

The biggest release of the week will come on Tuesday in the form of the anticipated Nike Attack x Cactus Jack collab. Nike, perhaps in a nod to a softer-than-expected reception for the model in general to this point, ran a viral marketing campaign on social involving a “beef” between OG attack endorser John McEnroe and Travis Scott. Clearly, this was done to get people talking about the forthcoming collab, even if it was clear that it was all staged, and on that front they succeeded. Was it necessary on a Travis Scott collab? Probably not, but maybe Nike has been getting spooked a bit by soft sales this holiday season of other expected hits like the Air Jordan 1 Royal Reimagineds.

Also dropping on December 19 will be the Zoom KD3 Vibrant Yellow and the Ja 1 Xmas. December 21 will see Off-White release of a pair of colorways — Matte Olive and Mantra Orange — on the Nike Terra Forma, while December 22 will feature a pair of Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v4 MADE in USA.

And on Christmas Day, we get one last gift, this time from Kith and Ronnie Fieg, with a pair of Clarks x Ronnie Fieg x Adidas Samba in Kithmas and White/Black colorways.
