April is just about ready to kick off in a few days, and a handful of brands are looking to pack the last days of March and the first week of the new month with some stunning sneaker releases. This week Nike, adidas, Converse and more are coming hard with new offerings, but before we inform you on those let us first take you back into all of the biggest sneaker news that came up last week.

Air Max Day 2022 went down last week, so we had plenty of excitement on the features front that included an interview with Deon Point about the three-pronged Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 Pack as well as a conversation with Air Max purist Ryan Hawkins for our latest installment of Sole Mates. While we’re on the topic of Nike, the brand came out in full force with new unveilings as well. It announced that it reached an agreement with the Kobe Bryant estate to continue the releases of Mamba-related products, provided an early look at the Stüssy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid in “Black” and officially unveiled its collaboration with Polaroid. The folks over at Jordan Brand also made their presence felt as teasers of Zion Williamson’s Jordan Zion 2 emerged, the Air Jordan 13 “Brave Blue” was revealed and detailed shots of the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT “Breakfast Club” popped up on our radar.

New Balance certainly captured our attention last week as well. They announced the acquisition of high-flying dunker Zach LaVine as the newest member of its hoops roster, linked up with Slow Steady Club for a neutral-toned 990v5 capsule and fashioned a third 574 collaboration with Louis De Guzman to pay homage to his mother’s affinity for flowers. In terms of other brands, Reebok announced its final collection with Pyer Moss, Balenciaga released a wuartet of Track.3 colorways and ASICS introduced its ‘Naruto Shippuden’ footwear collection.

All up to speed? Perfect. Browse through this week’s top 10 launches below and be sure to peep the HBX online store for fresh footwear styles to add to your rotation.

Nike ISPA Flow 2020 SE “Dutch Green”

Release Date: March 29
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Despite the fact that the winter season is on its way out (thankfully), Nike is still keeping functionality at the forefront and giving this Nike ISPA Flow 2020 SE a moment to shine. This pair deviates from the original silhouette as it features insulated uppers to keep you cozy and protected in harsher climate conditions. Midsoles are loaded up with React foam to keep you moving comfortably all-day long as well.

Nike Air Force 1 Low “Off Noir”

Release Date: March 30
Release Price: $130 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Air Force 1s will always be a staple of Nike for its sleek shape and classic heritage, and this year we’re going to see the silhouette grow its catalog with a plethora of new colorways. One of this makeups is the Air Force 1 Low “Off Noir” which features stealthy uppers and all-white bottoms to form an extremely versatile option for your rotation this season.

Blondey x adidas A.B. Gazelle Indoor

Release Date: March 30 (THAMES MMXX), April 2 (CONFIRMED)
Release Price: £108 (approx. $142 USD).
Where to Buy: THAMES MMXX and CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop: After creating five see-through colorways of the Superstar, Blondey is reconnecting with adidas to produce a stealthy Gazelle colorway. Uppers are fashioned with a hefty ripstop upper and T-toe details that reference his aforementioned collab and feature tooling from the Indoor Super — a classic court sneaker from the 1980s. The kicks are also dropping alongside a matching sherpa crew sweater & short set, jousting jacket, jersey and accessory pieces.

sacai x Nike Blazer Low “White Patent” and “Black Patent”

Release Date: March 31
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Chitose Abe and sacai rarely miss when it comes to their footwear collaborations and this week we’re seeing the brand revisit the Blazer Low. Two neutral-toned colorways including the “Black Patent” and “White Patent” keep all of the double-stacked tongues, overlays and Swooshes in tact and employ glossy side panels for an elevated aesthetic.

Carhatt WIP x Converse CONS One Star and Fastbreak

Release Date: March 31
Release Price: $100-110 USD
Where to Buy: Converse
Why You Should Cop: Carhartt WIP and Converse CONS have reunited to form a Workwear-Inspired Skate Shoe capsule. The Converse One Star and Fastbreak have been fashioned with earthy tones to call out staple workwear colors and fabrics, and come brandished with Carhartt WIP and CONS logos on the tongue tabs.

Union LA x Nike Dunk Low “Argon” and “Court Purple”

Release Date: March 31
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: Union
Why You Should Cop: Carhartt A sizable amount of folks went crazy for the”Pistachio” pair, but Union is now ready to conclude this month with Nike and launch the pack’s “Argon” and “Court Purple” Dunk low colorways. The dusty blue color palette for the “Argon” pair is inspired by a rare pair of kicks that Chris Gibbs scooped up from Japan, while the “Court Purple” version pays homage to the classic Japanese Dunk “City Pack” colorway. Both are expected to sell out in minutes so set your alarms for this drop.

adidas Crazy 1 “Sunshine”

Release Date: April 1
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: adidas
Why You Should Cop: While Nike has officially come to terms with the Kobe Bryant estate to continue his footwear lineage with the brand, adidas is still moving forward with the retro of his first signature model in the adidas Crazy 1. One of the silhouette’s OG Lakers-friendly colorways in the “Sunshine” is coming back to the shelves in honor of the late Hall of Fame hooper.

Patta x Mizuno Sky Medal

Release Date: April 1
Release Price: TBC
Where to Buy: Patta
Why You Should Cop: After going on a hot streak of Nike collaborations towards the end of 2021, Patta finds itself in the spotlight once more thanks to its third Sky Medal collaboration with Mizuno. The shoes are fashioned with ivory, green and red color-blocking to call out Patta’s recent mainline offerings. Patta branding dresses up the tongues for more flair.

Air Jordan 1 Hi ‘85 “Georgetown”

Release Date: April 2
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS and Extra Butter
Why You Should Cop: Jordan Brand has been pushing the Air Jordan 1 Hi’ 85 at a snail’s pace since it returned in 2020, but the silhouette is finally dropping its first colorway of 2022. The “Georgetown” iteration is a nod to the 1982 NCAA championship — the very game in which MJ himself hit the game winner against the Hoyas to lead his team to victory. It’s also a full circle moment given that Jordan Brand is now an official sponsor of the school’s basketball program today.

Hender Scheme x The North Face Schlaf Boots and VECTIV Escape

Release Date: April 2
Release Price: ¥26,400-¥39,600 (approx. $215-321 USD)
Where to Buy: Hender Scheme
Why You Should Cop: Hender Scheme and The North Face have reunited for SS22 to roll out their third collaboration. The collaboration features footwear and accessories, the former of which is comprised of high-cut Schlaf Boots and a low-top VECTIV Escape. Waterproof nylon forms the Boot model and comes equipped with drawcords in the back and Vibram midsoles and the VECTIVs are styled with TPU overlays and a pull lacing system.
