The next sneaker will be launched for week 5 of April 2022
1) Billie Eilish x Nike Air Force 1 “Mushroom”
Nike recently teamed up with GRAMMY winner Billie Eilish, giving her classic Air Force 1 High a “Mushroom” makeover.
On April 25, 2022, Nike’s SNKRS website will release the Billie Eilish x Nike Air Force 1 High “Mushroom”, with an affordable price tag of $170. According to Billie and Nike, they created these shoes entirely with recycled materials. Other highlights include its monochrome tone and laceless five-strap Velcro setup.
2) Air Jordan 1 Mid “Armory Navy”
Shades of blue are not uncommon on the Air Jordan 1 Mid. However, the silhouette here seems to go against the grain, replacing the traditional “Royal” with something much more elegant. The pairs will drop on April 27 for a price of $120 on Nike’s online store.
The much-desired trainers are adorned with white leather panels and midsoles, as well as armory navy spills on the toe caps, stays, ankle flaps and swooshes. The laces and the collar are blacked out and give no ambiguity. The Jumpman badge on the tongue, as well as the wings on the side, complete the design of the shoe.
3) Air Jordan 11 Low Women’s “Pure Purple”
Air Jordan 11 has been recorded as one of Nike’s best-selling models.
Taking a leap forward, the brand has created its “Pure Violet” iteration, which will be available for $190 starting April 28. SNKRS will sell these shiny and iridescent pairs.
The freshly designed pair has a spring vibe. The upper begins with the aforementioned “Pure Violet” which is styled across the entire patent leather mudguard. While the rest of the upper and nearby branding is White, the outsole and underfoot shank are comprised of Ice Blue and Blackened Carbon Fiber respectively.
4) Nike Air Force 1 Mid QS “Ale Brown”
Nike is set to release its latest iteration of the Air Force 1 Mid, bringing the shoe back into the limelight. Future pairs will be available in the “Ale Brown” colorway slated for release April 28, for $140. These eye-catching copper brown sneakers will be available for purchase on the SNKRS e-commerce site.
Autumnal colors and a metallic finish can be found on the toes, heels and straps, all of which have a bronze look. The aforementioned check is done in a bolder orange to complement the branding on the vamp, tongue, and clasp.
The rest of the upper is dressed in distressed white leather, while the midsole is given a vintage touch with “Sail”.
5) Nike Air Force 1 Mid QS “Independence Day”
The highly anticipated Nike Air Force 1 Mid QS “Independence Day” sneakers are finally ready to hit stores on April 28th. These shiny, metallic-finish shoes will retail for $140 via SNKRS.
Metallic blue and red accents adorn the Nike Air Force 1 Mid sneakers. A few distinguishing features of the pair include matte yet shiny leather on the upper, tumbled white leather, jeweled swoosh and opaque outsole.
6) Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT Women’s “Patent Red”
Nike’s Jordan will release their latest Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT on April 28th. Dubbed ‘Patent Red’, these tantalizing kicks are marked at $140 and will be sold through Nike’s online store.
Bright red patents run around the toe, stays, and ankle flaps of the upcoming sneakers. The rest of the upper is then immersed in black and white neutrals, opting for a flatter construction of tumbled leathers. The sole received a “Sail” varnish, adding a vintage touch to the shoes.
7) Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT Women’s “Purple Patent”
The “Patent Purple” and “Patent Red” shoes will be released at the same time. These sneakers, which retail for $140, are sure to appeal to Jordan aficionados who prefer to keep it young and stylish.
The toe, quarter, lace collar and ankle are all covered in a glossy purple patent or acrylic, while the midfoot is covered in a tumbled matte leather. In contrast, Black is used at the heel and inside of the ankle, while a White toe delivers that OG style essence.
8) New Balance 990 made in USA
After a long list of Nikes and Jordans, New Balance is the newest entry on the list. The shoemaker will release three new sneakers, including the New Balance 990 Made in USA. These sturdy yet minimalist sneakers will be available for purchase on the brand’s e-commerce site from April 28.
Gray suede uppers are finished with white laces, classic N logos to the sides and midsoles.
9) New Balance 990v2 made in USA
The 990v2 will release alongside the 990 on April 28 via New Balance’s online store. The sneakers are very similar to the 990 pairs, with knit uppers and suedes. The casual kicks are finished with white colored laces on the top and gray N logos on the lateral sides. The heels of the pairs are additionally adorned with beige heels.
10) New Balance 990v3 made in USA
The New Balance 990v3 Made in USA completes the trio of April Week 5 arrivals from New Balance. The shoes will be available for purchase on the brand’s website from April 28.
Although the gray tones of the 990v3 shoes are identical, the heavy outsoles set them apart from the other two pairs. The sneakers have white laces that run over the tongues and are decorated with black tongues.
11) My Way x Air Jordan 2
The soon-to-be-released Air Jordan 2 has been given a makeover by A Ma Maniere, who used uncommon materials to improve the construction. On closer inspection, the “Sail” suede, for example, is delicately broken. Then down the midsole there’s a snakeskin-like print, with each scale much larger than the mockup suggests.
These textured shoes will hit stores on April 29 via A Ma Manière’s online stores.
12) Air Jordan 13 “Brave Blue”
The Air Jordan 13 “Brave Blue” returns this season in a high-top version, similar to last year’s Air Jordan 13 Low “Brave Blue”. Figure wears an approved color scheme of “Navy/Black-White-University Blue”.
The classic padded mesh upper is draped in blue and has a 3M reflective finish, while black leather and nubuck accents, as well as the distinctive holographic logo, match the rest.
Grab these pairs via the SNKRS online store starting April 29, for $200.
13) Bodega x ASICS GEL-MC PLUS
Bodega and ASICS are sticking with spring this season, with its beautiful blue skies, beautiful grass and tropical climates. These nature hues coat the upper and accents of the newly fashioned silhouette, bringing to life a predominantly gray colourway. The pair features the Bodega logo on the midsection as well as the sockliner.
Scheduled to launch on April 29, these pairs will be sold through Bodega’s e-commerce site, for $150.
14) Packer x Reebok Answer IV “Silver” Shoes
Part 2 of the Packer x Reebok Answer IV took inspiration from the white and silver/grey colorways of the Americas Cup and applied that signature aesthetic to the Answer IV. Releasing on April 29, these chunky sneakers will retail for $180 on Reebok’s online store.
Premium white leather uppers are nicely combined with silver mesh. For added color, a crisp pop of red on the zipper and Reebok dot branding on the heel are applied in this Answer IV collaboration pair.
15) KCDC x Nike SB Dunk High “20th Anniversary” Sneakers
The list ends with Nike’s sneaker drop. Releasing on April 30, the KCDC x Nike SB Dunk High shoes will be readily available via KCDC’s online store.
The partnership was supposed to start in 2021, to coincide with the Brooklyn-based skateshop’s 20th anniversary, but was postponed for unknown reasons.
A two-tone pink upper is used in this design, with a softer pink suede hue above the bubblegum pink leather. Black double-layered swooshes are tied to a heel tab with the KCDC boutique emblem.
