Saturday March 2 is going to be a blessed day for those who love affordable, highly sought after sneakers, because Nike and J.Crew’s collaboration on the Killshot 2 is returning to stores in a whole new colorway.
J.Crew announced the re-release on Instagram Friday with a carousel of images showing the sneaker with a dark red swoosh and heel cap. Previously, the Killshot 2—a sneaker J.Crew can hardly keep in stock due to intense demand—came in a white and navy colorway and gum sole. This version keeps the gum sole, but switches up the tone, not only with the color, but with a nylon mesh upper as opposed to previous release’s leather.
J.Crew said in its Instagram post the sneaker would be available on Saturday, March 2—probably coming in at around $110—but resale site StockX is showing a pair for sale for $225 right now. That’s the kind of demand it’s already sparking.
You might remember it was this time last year when J.Crew re-released the OG colorway of the Killshot 2, and they didn’t last long then. J.Crew even sold tickets to select stores where the sneaker would be available, as they only held 50 pairs in each. If history is to repeat itself, a wider release should be available on J.Crew’s website sometime next week.

So why are people so thirsty for these seemingly simple sneakers? Well, that’s exactly the reason. The Killshot 2 is a classic silhouette than anyone can pair with just about anything. The new red colorway opens this up even more. If you’ve got a pair of each, you can kind of get away without any other causal weekend sneakers (but you know as well as I do any sneakerhead worth their salt has more than two options in their closet).
All we know for now is that the Killshot 2 will make its triumpant return this Saturday. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
