There’s all but two weeks left to go in March 2022, but there’s no question that all of the most popular sportswear brands are going to jam pack the month’s remaining days with a barrage of new footwear releases. The lineup for the next seven days is listed down below, but before we take you through all of those, let’s first debrief you on all of the major news that popped up in the world of sneakers last week.

Soles MatesHYPEBEAST‘s weekly footwear editorial feature series — invited in Reebok’s Special Projects designer Evan Belforti in for an interview in which he touched on his compelling career journey and love for the obscure Reebok Travel Trainer. A significant amount of news turned up as well, the majority of which came out from Nike‘s camp. The Swoosh confirmed the anticipated return of the LeBron 9 Low “Lebronald Palmer,” announced its three-pronged Air Max 1 capsule for Air Max Day 2022, revealed its SB Dunk Low collaboration with Polaroid and teased a Supreme x Nike Zoom Flight 95 capsule. Shifting gears to the Jordan Brand side, we captured a glimpse of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Visionaire,” official look at the Air Jordan 1 “Rebellionaire” which is headlining this week’s drops and learned that Mavericks All-Star Luka Dončić will be launching his own signature sneaker.

It was more or less quiet for adidas last week, but there were still some heavy-hitting pieces that sprung up. Kanye West made sure to get his releases in by dropping a duo of YEEZY FOAM RNNR colorways, as well as announce release details for the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Bone.” Reebok generated some noise as well by uncovering its newest initiative with Maison Margiela, announcing that it would be switching its Kamikaze model to the “Hurrikaze” moniker and signing Myles Garrett to the family.

In terms of other brands, we witnessed BLENDS and Vault by Vans reunite for another Bone Jazz Stripe collection, New Balance preview its upcoming “Protection Pack” colorways and Brain Dead give a first look at its upcoming collaboration with Oakley.

Since you’re all up to speed now, check out this week’s top 10 sneaker releases here below. And when you’re all done there, be sure to browse through the HBX web shop for more footwear styles.
