What Sneaker Releases to Expect In 2020?
Here are the last couple of weeks until new year, and with them come the expectations and speculations about 2020’s sneaker releases! Some might end up being just rumors, some will definitely drop, and some might just get postponed. But we should always hope for the best and wait. Anyway, let’s skip the introductions and whatnot and dive right into the 2020 sneaker releases!
2020 Best Sneaker Releases
14 years later, Air Jordan 6 DMP makes its way to the list of interesting sneaker releases in 2020. The kicks are staying true to the original 2006 version with the all-black nubuck upper, black tongue and laces with a bit of gold on the black midsole. The outsole is the familiar translucent ice. It’s worth mentioning that the sneaker will drop in the original ‘06 gold box along with the dog tag.
The kicks will definitely have a high resale value. Afterall, the 2006 AJ6 DMP resells for a minimum of $400 on resale platforms!
Release Date: January 25, 2020
Style Code: CT4594-007
Retail Price: $200
Avg. Resale Value: $400+ (2006)
Virgil Abloh is just not taking it easy on anyone! His eccentric -to say the least- take on the Air Jordan 5 got them easily on the list of the most anticipated sneaker releases of the 2020. We can kiss the usual leather upper goodbye, because a synthetic material replaced it along with Virgil’s signature “shoelaces” branding and the Beaverton branding on the side!
Now regarding resale, this might not be the best colorway but the AJ5 Trophy Room sold out like hell and it was a success! In addition, Off-White collabs usually have a very high resale value so we shouldn’t expect less than that for this collab.
Releases Date: February, 2020
Style Code: CT8480-001
Retail Price: $225
Yeezy Basketball “Quantum”
A lot of fresh Yeezy designs will be dropping in 2020, and Yeezy Basketball “Quantum” is, hopefully, one of them. Ever since it surfaced back in 2018, people were digging it. But what was initially believed to drop in 2019, didn’t! The kicks will release in both lifestyle and hardwood iterations. So maybe they’re ditching the 3M detailing to get approved by the NBA on court?
There is no exact release date, but people are speculating its release on the All-Star weekend. If that’s the case, the weekend will be fire!
The kicks are currently reselling for as high as $2,500. But if you don’t have that kind of cash, it’s okay, just stay alert for any news!
Another 2006 model comes back to life in early 2020! Black Cat might be one of the subtle sneaker releases in this list, but it’s a must have because of their classic all-black upper, midsole and outsole with a little hint of dark grey in the shape of the jumpman on the tongue.
Releases Date: February 22, 2020
Style Code: CU1110-010
Retail Price: $190
Avg. Resale Value: $700 (2006)
We already covered the Nike Sacai kicks here, but they are definitely worth mentioning on our list of 2020 sneaker releases! Nike Sacai was one of the most successful collabs of 2019, if not the one. And in 2020 we’re probably getting 2 monochromatic iterations of the popular Nike LDWaffle, black and white. Chitose Abe is swapping the mesh upper with nylon and the regular laces with ribbon-like laces!
Releases Date: February, 2020
Style Code: BV0073-002 (Black) – BV0073-101 (White)
Retail Price: $160
Avg. Resale Value: $560 (2019)

There are no official news yet, but stay on the lookout because they might surface anytime soon. In the meantime, here are some mockups of the upcoming kicks.
These kicks might not be within the price range of many of us. But if it is within yours, it definitely is worth the cop! This collab is actually one of the most luxurious 8of all upcoming releases!

Yeezy Foam Runner
Or what twitter dubbed as the Yeezy “Crocs”.

They might not be the crowd’s favorite, but they will without a doubt sell out because it’s a Yeezy! From the looks of it, the kicks are definitely going to be comfy af. And fun fact, the Foam Runners are made of algae, so they’re also eco-friendly!
Releases Date: Early 2020
Retail Price: $75
Although everything we know about it is that’s it’s a prototype, the new silhouette seems like it’s from another world! Initially, rumors stated that it’s going to drop by the end of 2019. Yet, here we are, there are no 451s yet! So let’s keep our fingers crossed!!
Lots of Jordans, lots of Yeezys.. 2020 is packed with interesting sneaker releases, so if you’re not catching the wave early, you might not be able to do it later. That’s why, you should have some really good bots, proxies and servers. Otherwise, good luck getting all these babies for resale value!
