Jordan Brand’s 30th anniversary stole the show this year! 2015 saw the Jumpman aka Michael Jordan collaborate with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design and  skateshop Supreme. Even beyond outside influences, the Jordan Brand continuously churned out colorways and models that would thrive off of the hardwood.

The Air Jordan1‘s three decade celebration was highlighted not by OG colorways this year, but instead by an attention to luxury like never before. The Pinnacle 1s saw a premium price point of $400 (and no, that wasn’t the resale value). Now the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is getting toned down for a simplistic black and white color known as the Air Jordan 1 “Cyber Monday”. The entire upper is encased in a black remastered leather while a white on white midsole/outsole combination adds a clean finish. Available this Monday, November 30th for $160.

This pair definitely ranks high on our list of Black Friday Must-Have Sneakers, and it isn’t too hard to see why with the iridescent upper full of a rainbow array of metallic hues once light hits at the perfect ankle. The early 2000s basketball model has yet to cool off in 2015 as Nike Sportswear continues to revitalize the iconic silhouette in new and exciting ways. Here the traditional combination of a black lining, tongue, and laces matches that icy translucent outsole to keep your focus tuned in on the molded Posite upper throughout. Sure, the Aqua 8s are a top priority for mostly everyone setting out to grab a new pair of sneakers this week, but this Foamposite  might make you reconsider your priorities. The Hologram Foams will drop today, November 25th for $230.
