Weekend Sneaker Releases: Nike, New Balance

The number of sneaker releases this weekend is lighter than in recent weeks, but that doesn’t mean the kicks available aren’t worthy. From Nike to New Balance, here’s what you can pick up this weekend.

Nike Dunk Low Viotec Kids

This shoe was originally released in Japan back in 2002 and quickly became a sneakerhead favorite. The multicolored low-top is now available for kids, releasing Friday with Nike Dunk Low Viotec at an $80 price tag.

Nike What The KD7

On Saturday, fans of the KD7 and the What The stylings can pick up the What The KD7 for $200. In true What The fashion — an idea spearheaded by Nike Skateboarding footwear designer James Arizumi — the shoe takes elements from 18 editions of the KD7, from colors and patterns to graphics and technical details, and mashes them together into one very different shoe.

Nike Air Foamposite One Gone Fishing

For the teams that got bounced from the NBA playoffs before making it to the finals, Nike has a sneaker for you: the Air Foamposite Gone Fishing. Releasing Saturday for $250, the sneaker boasts a dark emerald upper with a fish-scale pattern, with black atop the Foamposite material and an icy outsole. The shoe also features fish bones on the heels.

The Dunk Low Premium SB Primative features a black, gray and red upper with black-and-white outsole, based on an early P-Rod 1 colorway released by the brand.
