Jose Partida

Key sneaker releases of the week for May 13th – 19th.

This week Wemby releases his very first Nike PE, Travis Scott is back with another AJ1 Low OG inspired by high alma mater, and the potential Nike SB Dunk of the year is releasing.


Nike Zoom Vomero 5 ‘Back 9’ – May 14th

The Nike Zoom Vomero 5 is arguably one of Nike’s hottest silhouettes that they have put out over the past few years. The Vomero 5 combines current style trends with all day comfort and performance. This ‘Back 9’ colorway was originally rumored to be a part of a ‘Masters’ themed collection but Nike held it back to release at a later date. The Green and Yellow hits throughout this pair are clearly Augusta inspired and would pair perfectly with The Green Jacket. The Nike Zoom Vomero 5 ‘Back 9’ launches exclusively on Nike US on May 14th.

Air Jordan 11 Low ‘Space Jam’ – May 18th 

The legacy of the Space Jam 11 was sealed the moment they made their first appearance in the movie of the same title.

Futura Laboratories x Nike SB Dunk Low – May 18th
Already being hailed the SB Dunk of the year by many, the Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low is a pair that has been on many sneakerheads ‘must cop list’ since they were first previewed last year. Futura’s unmistakable graffiti style artwork is on full display and is accompanied by his signature on the lateral side heel. Accented by multicolor laces and an iced out translucent blue outsole to match the overall aesthetic of the shoe. Wrapped up in special packaging it’s safe to say this is one of the most eye-catching sneakers we have seen drop this year. The Futura Laboratories x Nike SB Dunk Low is set to release on May 18th.

Skepta x PUMA Forever – May 18th

Two years ago, the sneaker space was surprised when UK Rap Legend Skepta was announced as a new collaborator for PUMA. The news came at the heel of very successful campaigns with Nike, leaving fans wondering what Skepta had up his sleeve. Now in 2024, Skepta and PUMA are finally releasing their anticipated sneaker, the ‘Forever’ this week. The sneaker features uses of mesh and reflective 3m- materials that have become synonymous with Skepta and his sneakers.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
