If you are a sneakerhead residing in Great Britain you may be glad to hear that some sought after sneakers are headed your way. You won’t be glad to know, however, that there is a twist.
While the sneakers are expected to come in limited quantities upon release, the twist is that a new sneaker will release every day, for six days. Nike calls this the “Heat Wave” and it begins with:
The Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Space Jam’. These are set to kick off the “Heat Wave,” a celebration of the European release of the SNEAKRS app. You can find these on the app on August 18 at 16:00 BST (4 PM), for £169.95 (approx. $220 USD).
After the AJ XI Retro ‘Space Jam’ have released, the Nike Air VaporMax ‘Black/Anthracite’ for both men and women will be dropping on August 19 at 8:00 BST, for £169.95 (approx. $220 USD).
Following the Nike Air VaporMax, the Air Jordan 1 Retro from this past year’s NBA All-Star Weekend is set to drop on August 20 at 8:00 BST, for £139.95 (approx. $180 USD).
Once the AJ1 Retro ‘All-Star’ has released, the next day will see the release of the Nike Flyknit Trainer in a black/white colorway. It will be available on August 21 at 16:00 BST (4 PM), for £129.95 (approx. $170 USD).
If the Nike Flyknit Trainer does not tickle your fancy, maybe another AJ1 will; the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Royal’. Set to drop on August 22 at 16:00 BST (4 PM), for £129.95 (approx. $170 USD), expect these to be one of the more sought after kicks to be released.
Lastly, the “Heat Wave” will end with the release of the Nike Air Max 97 ‘Tonal White’ and it’s set to release on the final day of the Wave, August 23 at 16:00 BST (4 PM), for £139.95 (approx. $180 USD).
