Looks like you survived Black Friday, but that doesn’t mean the release are going to stop. This week has some classics making a comeback as well as some newness from Jordan and adidas. I am your host Jacques Slade and this is the Heat Check

Starting off the drops for this week, performance kicks get a Boost, Pun intended, with the D Rose 5 Boost. The colorway dropping this week is called the Alternate away and feature the cracked stone print on the side panels. Those hit Finish Line today for $140. Keeping with adidas, John Wall and the J Wall 1 will be dropping two colorways the Away and Alternate Away this week as well. Both have heavy doses or red and will cost you $115. On the lifestyle side of things, Reebok Classics is dropping the OG colorways of the Pump Omni Lite. These are going to be limited from what I can tell and you can grab both color over at Finish Line for $115. I really like those. If you happen to skateboard, the Nike Dunk SB Scribble that dropped for kids on the first will be dropping at retail this week. Remember that is a grade school offering and priced at $85 for the premium style. Those will release on the 5th.

Performance wise, you choices are limited this week, but thats okay because it is one of the better models to release this year, the Air Jordan XX9. The model is rocking a pretty much all black upper with a touch of white on the branding. Those are $225 at Finish Line. If you wanted to get your hands on the Nike Air Max Penny I or the Women’s Nike Free 5.0 that are apart of the Doernbecher collection, you are in luck as they both arrive on Saturday. Both pairs were delayed and the the Penny will cost you $145 while the Nike Free will cost you $105. On the purely lifestyle side, we have a couple shoes to choose from Nike Sportswear and Jordan Brand. Nike Sportswear has the chuck Posite in an iridescent cave purple that has a bit of a shine to it. That one is going to cost you $220. The red-shoe trend looks to continue with the Nike KD VII Lifestyle. The model has an all red upper with Vachetta leather detailing and red leather eyelets. Pricing on that one is $115 when it drops on Saturday. And to end the year on a high note, Jordan Brand is releasing the Air Jordan 1 High OG in a black and gum offering. The model is pretty much all black with the exception of the gum outsole. These look to release on Saturday and Finish Line will have them for $140.
