Last week in the world of footwear, adidas and Converse sent out shockwaves through the industry with the unveiling of the former’s 100% recyclable FUTURECRAFT.LOOP and the latter’s first performance basketball shoe in years, the All Star Pro BB. Both initiatives will surely impact the rest of the industry for years to come, setting precedents in both sustainability and heritage design.

On the lifestyle side, a number of new collaborative sneakers were teased. The week started off with KITH’s new Chuck 70 unveil, then, fellow New York institution Sweet Chick premiered its Vans partnership. Neymar Jr. even offered a sneak peak at a pair of subtly redesigned Shox R4s. It was Donald Glover’s first ever adidas capsule however that dominated last week’s headlines, which is dropping this week (see below).

Lastly, the news we didn’t want to hear came from the legendary Keith Hufnagel, who announced the end of Huf’s longstanding footwear division.

Now with a new week ahead of us, one that includes Earth Day, we present the latest installment of our weekly drops list, showcasing what’s to come from your favorite footwear brands. Take a look at the list below and let us know what releases you’re looking forward to.

Steven Harrington x Nike “Earth Day” Collection

Release Date: April 22
Release Price: $80-$100 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists and nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Steven Harrington has been an artist favorite of our’s for sometime now, and this Nike collaboration really puts him on the map. The Earth Day theme doesn’t stop at the fun graphics, as each model features Flyleather that’s made with at least 50% leather fiber, while still looking and feeling like regular leather.

Nike Air Trainer 3 “Medicine Ball”

Release Date: April 25
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists and nike.com
Why You Should Cop: The Air Trainer 3 “Medicine Ball” is likely the most recognizable colorway tied to this Bo Jackson silhouette, and considering it’s been five years since we last saw it, you may not want to miss out on this rerelease.

Nike Air Max Tailwind 4 “OG”

Release Date: April 25
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists and nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Following its Supreme collab, the Air Max Tailwind 4 is finally getting a general release, and in a fitting “Volt” color theme. It’s an Air Max model with a cult following, but if you’re among those who enjoy it, this is an exciting release that took years to happen.

Donald Glover x adidas Originals “Donald Glover Present” First Drop

Release Date: April 26
Release Price: $80-$100 USD
Where to Buy: Select adidas stockists and adidas.com
Why You Should Cop: It’s Donald Glover‘s first of many collaborative drops with adidas, but it will likely be the most coveted: the Continental 80 is already priced at $2,200 USD on StockX.

AMBUSH x Nike Air Max 180 Hi Pack

Release Date: April 26
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists and nike.com
Why You Should Cop: Just like DG and adidas, this is AMBUSH‘s first-ever take on a Nike sneaker, and despite it being a women’s exclusive, it’ll surely sell out and hit the secondary market for considerably more than retail prices.

Marvel x adidas Basketball “Heroes Among Us” Collection

Release Date: April 26
Release Price: $110-$180 USD
Where to Buy: Select adidas stockists and adidas.com
Why You Should Cop: Endgame hits theaters this week, so if you’re looking for something Marvel-branded to add to your moviegoing-fit, and cosplay just isn’t steez, one of these hoops-ready models can surely do the job.

Hender Scheme x adidas Originals Spring 2019 Pack

Release Date: April 26
Release Price: $180
Where to Buy:adidas.com Select adidas stockists and adidas.com
Why You Should Cop: Hender Scheme and adidas always nail it, and the leather on these Lacombes and Sobakovs just look so glorious. And how else are you going to cop HS kicks for under $200 USD?

Nike Air Fear of God Raid “Light Bone”

Release Date: April 27
Release Price: $190 USD
Where to Buy: Select Nike stockists and nike.com
Why You Should Cop: For all of you who are still kicking yourself in the ass for not forking out the few hundo’ to cop the Air Fear of God 1, don’t let this more affordable option pass you by.

Vivienne Westwood x ASICS “Squiggle” Pack

Release Date: April 27
Release Price: $180-$190 USD
Where to Buy: viiviennewestwood.com and asics.com 
Why You Should Cop: It seems Vivienne Westwood has concluded her Vans partnership and moved on to collaborate with ASICS. At the ripe old age of 78, we may not be getting many more of these fun collabs from the fashion great; these shouldn’t be slept on.

A Ma Maniére x adidas Consortium Crazy BYW Low

Release Date: April 27
Release Price: TBA
