Cop or drop? It's week 8 of 2022 and you've been busy again voting for upcoming sneaker releases. How does that work? In our release calendar and also in our sneaker search engine, everyone has the opportunity to vote for the sneakers. The upcoming drops of each week that got the most thumbs up find their place in this post, with all the important info. Let's go:
Air Jordan 3 'Cardinal Red' | CT8532-126
Rank 3 this week: the Air Jordan 3 'Cardinal Red'. As always, the third Jordan comes with the typical cement print on the upper. The 'Cardinal Red' colorway is certainly not unknown to Nike and Jordan fans. Think of the Air Jordan 7 OG Cardinal (1992) or the Nike WMNS Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 'Cardinal Red'.
The 3 Jordan has a white leather upper with red and grey accents. On the heel we see the Jumpman logo, also in red. The kicks will drop in full family sizing and will be available at various retailers. As always, you can get all the info via the button and register directly for open Raffles.
The release info at a glance: Thursday, 25 February 2022, 09:00 am, 200€.
Nike Dunk High 'Acid Wash' Orange | DD9404-800
Nike presents two new colorways of the Dunk High 1985 Acid Wash. Among them is the Nike Dunk High 'Acid Wash' Orange, which made it to your 2nd place this week. First released in 2021, the 'Acid Wash' design of the Nike Dunk is a flashier take on the classic. The 'Black Acid Wash' and 'Red Acid Wash' colorways have already been released in 2021.
All those models have a special stain pattern on their overlays. This makes the kicks look as if they have been stained with acid - hence the name. Another special feature: the silhouette is more similar to the original Nike Dunk High model from 1985 and thus differs in silhouette from the new Dunk designs we can mostly buy today. The Nike Dunk High 'Acid Wash' Orange has a mix of yellow, orange and red tones.
In the course of the new pack, the Nike Dunk High 1985 Yellow 'Acid Wash' will also drop. Click on the button below to find out more about the purchase. The sneakers will be released on Wednesday, 23 February 2022 at 09:00 am at various retailers. Costs: 130€.
Air Jordan 1 High OG 'Brotherhood' | 555088-706
1st place: The Air Jordan 1 High OG 'Brotherhood'. A new OG colorway on the Jordan 1 is always a highlight. This time we see a striking look with more bold colours on the upper. Like many Jordan releases, the kicks also have a story:
The colours of the Jordan are inspired by the Omega Psi Phi Brotherhood, which Michael Jordan belonged to during his time at the University of North Carolina. This 'Brotherhood' was an association of the African-American community at the university. One of their mottos: Friendship is Essential to the Soul. Shaquille O'Neal and Steve Harvey were also once part of the community. Visually, we see a white base and a yellow colour on the overlays, the sole and the toebox. The other overlays of the sneaker are in a purple colour, which is characteristic for Omega Psi Phi. The laces and the Wings logo are also in this colour.
The new Jordan 1 High drops on Saturday, 26 February 2022 at 09:00 am for €170. You can see all Raffles and retailers by clicking on the button. Make sure you get the free Sneakerjagers app to get reminders for those drops and more.
