The first full week of April has commenced, and premier sneaker brands are not holding back in terms of kicking off the month with a bang. Major imprints such as Nike, adidas and Reebok are supplying sneaker lovers with bonafide bangers in the coming days, but before we break those down let’s first get you all up to speed on last week’s action.

For features, HYPEBEAST had the chance to spotlight two creatives from the UK in Priya Ahluwalia and Blondey, the former of which was the latest guest of our ongoing Sole Mates series while the latter touched on his latest Gazelle collaboration. News was also heavy on the Three Stripes front last week as we captured a closer look at the Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT “Black” and learned that the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 “Turtle Dove” is slated to receive a reissue for the first time.

Nike was firing out some striking news as well, the most captivating being that Virgil Abloh’s collaborative line will be continuing and starting off with his Blazer Low offerings. The Swoosh also brought light to the KD 15, officially unveiled the Nike SB Dunk High “New York Mets” makeup and showed off a second Nike Dunk Low “Graffiti” iteration. Last week, Jordan brand teased an upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Canyon Purple” and Air Jordan 4 “Military Black,” as well as showed off the Air Jordan 12 Golf Low “Metallic Gold.”

Elsewhere in sneaker news, we finally saw the official announcement of size?’s exclusive New Balance 550 “Cordura Pack,” saw an early look at Stüssy’s upcoming Converse Chuck 70 Hi collaboration and learned of A-COLD-WALL*’s Converse Aeon Active CX team-up.

Now that you’re all updated with the latest in footwear, let’s dive into this week’s top 10 releases here below. When you’re all done there, don’t forget to peep the HBX store to cop more footwear styles.

Polaroid x Nike SB Dunk Low

Release Date: April 5
Release Price: $120 USD
Where to Buy: Premier
Why You Should Cop: A key to success for the Nike SB label is the collaborations that it will take on every year, and to ring in the month of April on a high note it’s introducing a brand new team-up with Polaroid. The iconic camera brand has lent its touch to the classic SB Dunk Low and styled it up with stacked Swooshes in its recognizable colors.

Sean Wotherspoon x adidas Equipment Support 93

Release Date: April 6
Release Price: $180 USD
Where to Buy: CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop: Sean Wotherspoon continues to align himself with adidas for collaborative footwear projects, and the next silhouette that he’s lent his creative touch to is the EQT Support 93. To call out his love for the great outdoors, the Round Two co-founder has applied a Cordura material to the upper to give it more durability and he’s fashioned it in classic hiker-friendly hues of purple, yellow and red. Lace loops are done up in multi-colored fashion and frayed graphics are embroidered on the rear end to nod to his past Three Stripes team-ups.

Union x Nike Dunk Low “Argon”

Release Date: April 7
Release Price: $150 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Footwear collaborations are going to be spewing out from Union LA over the course of 2022, and to fully close the chapter of its latest Dunk Low capsule, the brand’s “Argon” colorway is gearing up for one more release via the SNKRS app. Flight-inspired details from the gridded uppers to the shoe boxes that are styled with boarding pass graphics to the icy blue uppers all channel a similar look and feel to one of Chris Gibbs’ most coveted Dunk colorways that he once discovered in Japan.

Nike Dunk High “Vintage Black”

Release Date: April 7
Release Price: $125 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Black and white-colored Dunks have become a street staple in today’s footwear trends. And so the Nike team is capitalizing on this notion by fashioning a brand new Dunk High “Vintage Black” colorway for the ladies. Overlays have been coated with a slightly glossy exterior to give off a more luxe look while the midsoles have been executed with creamy outers to exude a retro, worn-in aesthetic.

adidas YEEZY QUANTUM “Mono Carbon”

Release Date: April 7
Release Price: $250 USD
Where to Buy: CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop: Despite dropping out of his highly-anticipated Coachella performance, Kanye West still plans to take care of business on the footwear front this week with a brand new Yeezy Quantum colorway. Up next for the creative genius is a “Mono Carbon” makeup that features blue tints across its wavy mid-foot patterns and synthetic collars.

Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Low

Release Date: April 8
Release Price: $140 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Nike is ready to put all of Virgil Abloh’s projects back into motion after taking some much needed time off following his passing in November 2021. The first to arrive on the market is his Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Low capsule that features “White/University Red” and “Black/Electro Green” colorways. Uppers are hole-punched in certain areas a la his Air Jordan 5 collab and come modernized with Air Terra Humara-inspired TPU heel molds.

Reebok Question Mid “Mocha Toe”

Release Date: April 8
Release Price: $160 USD
Where to Buy: Reebok
Why You Should Cop: Allen Iverson’s signature silhouettes are garnering a sizable following this Spring thanks to its flurry of new colorways, and the latest to be unveiled is the Reebok Question Mid “Mocha Toe.” Bearing a two-toned look, the kicks are mostly whipped up with premium leather collars, side panels and midsoles but come contrasted with espresso-like accents that are integrated on the suede toe boxes, vector branding and the “3” logos on the lower heels.

Air Jordan 5 “Jade Horizon”

Release Date: April 9
Release Price: $200 USD
Where to Buy: SNKRS
Why You Should Cop: Nature tends to get the best of our sneakers the more we rock them, and this Jordan Brand has nodded to this notion with its latest Air Jordan 5 “Jade Horizon” colorway. The dusted green and pre-yellowed outsoles are inspired by the natural wear and tear which creates a familiar oxidized look and feel. Midsoles are backdropped in a stark black and come contrasted with gray spikes and black speckles.

BAIT x Attack On Titan x adidas UltraBOOST

Release Date: April 9
Release Price: $220 USD
Where to Buy: BAIT
Why You Should Cop: If there’s any entity out there that’s going to push out an anime-focused sneaker collaboration, it’s going to be BAIT. This season, the streetwear and sneakers retailer has linked up with adidas to generate an UltraBOOST iteration that pays homage to Attack On Titan’s Colassal Titan. The antagonist is translated through the blood red uppers and off-white details that style up the laces, stripes and soles.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Zebra”

Release Date: April 7
Release Price: $220 USD
Where to Buy: CONFIRMED
Why You Should Cop:
Restocks of YEEZY sneakers have been known to occur multiple times when it comes to Kanye’s most popular offerings with adidas.
