Where to Buy the Most Anticipated Sneakers in Europe This Week

Nike, adidas, Puma, ASICS, Afew x Diadora and more.

By //Footwear 

While every week brings forth an abundant amount of sneaker releases and drops across the globe, sneakerheads might have a hard time remembering when and where to purchase the most coveted shoes. What’s even more difficult is finding a place that states exactly when and where they can be purchased within your region. To help you keep on top of drop dates and locations, here’s everything noteworthy that will be releasing in Europe this week.

Although it’s been a relatively slow week of sneaker drops, there’s still more than enough sneakers out there, with Jordan Brand, Nike, adidas, Vans, Karhu and Aimé Leon Dore all making an appearance.

Aimé Leon Dore Q14

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £202 GBP from Wrong Weather

For such a hyped brand, Aimé Leon Dore has been incredibly difficult to get hold of on European shores. But this season that appears to have changed, with the brand relatively widely distributed across the continent. The Q14 sneaker’s AF1 influence is clear, but those looking to keep the iconic shape while upgrading the materials used will be interested in purchasing this.

Vans Vault OG Prison Issue LX

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £57 GBP (€67.83 EUR) from Goodhood

These are more towards the ‘everyday beater’ end of the sneaker spectrum, but everyone needs a pair of those. The Vans Vault OG Prison Issue LX is a clean and minimal pair of sneakers, with the only issue being whether you’re into velcro straps or not. If you are, then these are ideal.

Nike Air Foamposite One “Copper”

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £179.99 GBP from Footlocker

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Foamposite, something Nike celebrated with a royal blue re-release. The Copper edition of the iconic Foamposite shape is available once again, for the first time since 2010.

adidas Iniki Runner BOOST

Release date: Out now
Retail Price: £89 GBP (approximately €106 EUR) from Hanon.

There’s been more than enough talk about the Iniki Runner BOOST, adidas’s retro running shape that’s kept up to date by use of the BOOST sole unit. The release is a relatively wide one across Europe in four colorways – the grey, coral, yellow and blue editions.

Nike Air More Uptempo


Release date: Out now
Retail price: £124.99 GBP from Footlocker

The Air More Uptempo is another classic shape that’s been receiving the re-release treatment as of late. We previewed the triple-black edition earlier this month as well as the ultra-hyped Supreme collaboration coming soon, but this staple colorway is now available for purchase.

adidas NMD_R2 Primeknit


Release date: Out now
Retail price: £99.95 GBP from adidas

adidas has unleashed a host of new NMD_R2 colorways during this month and they’re now making their way to stores, with this pair available now having been released at retailers.

Nike Dunk Low SB Pro “Intergalactic”

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £100 GBP from Caliroots.

Nike is celebrating 4/20 in its own special way, re-using the Galaxy colorway (originally used on a 2012 pair of Foamposites) and adding it to the Nike Dunk Low SB Pro.

Karhu Aria “OG Inspired” Pack

Release date: April 21
Retail price: £95 GBP (approximately €114 EUR), from Hanon shop

Karhu is a sneaker purist’s brand. It’s decidedly separate from the world of hype but has the fascinating backstory of having been the originator of adidas’s iconic three stripes, selling the trademark to adidas in 1951 in exchange for approximately €1,600 EUR and two bottles of good whiskey. The brand’s latest drop is the Aria OG-Inspired pack, which consists of two runner models in Wet Weather/Fiery Red and Poseidon/Foggy Dew colorways.

Puma Tsugi Shinsei

Release date: April 21
Retail price: £95 GBP from Puma

This sneaker combines eastern sensibilities – shinsei translates to reborn in Japanese – with a forward thinking take on technology, something we expanded on when we earlier covered it.

ASICS GEL-Mai


Release date: April 21
Retail price: €129.95 EUR from 43Einhalb

We previewed the GEL-Mai’s earlier this month and the black colorway caught more than a few eyes. There’s now a firm update for the clean and minimal shoe, which is available this week.

Afew x Diadora V7000 “Highly Addictive”

Release date: April 22
Retail price: €199.95 EUR from Afew

One for the diehards, this collaboration was notable for its marketing campaign based around a scientist finding “The Cure” for sneaker addicts.

Air Jordan V Premium Pure Platinum

Release date: April 22
Retail price: €400 EUR from Overkill

The biggest drop of this week in terms of hype is the Air Jordan V Premium, which come in a pure platinum colorway. The lifestyle edition of the famed Jordan shoe, it uses high quality leather, woven side panels and an embossed flight tag tongue. The fabrics involved mean the price is also a premium one.

adidas Busenitz Pro “3rd and Army”


Release date: April 22
Retail price: £89.95 GBP from adidas

This special edition of the Busenitz Pro is named after a San Francisco skate area that Busenitz is personally a fan of. The shoe itself has an Italian leather upper, metallic tongue and artwork to the side, and is finished off with a semi-translucent rubber outsole.

We’ll be updating this during the week, so stay tuned for new updates on releases.
