Best Sneakers Releasing This Week

adidas Forum Powerphase Bad Bunny Benito

Bad Bunny joined forces with adidas once again, this time adding a fresh spin to the Forum with the adidas Forum Powerphase Bad Bunny Benito.

Unlike previous Bad Bunny adidas Forums, the adidas Forum Powerphase Bad Bunny Benito ditches the ankle strap and borrows paneling from the classic adidas Powerphase silhouette. The upper is constructed of canvas and leather, with brown, black, and pastel hues prominent in the color blocking. Triple-stacked heel padding, a yellowed sole, and customized “Benito” text on the lateral side complete the design.

The adidas Forum Powerphase Bad Bunny Benito releases on Wednesday, February 9th for $160 on the adidas CONFIRMED app and in select stores worldwide.

Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue

Jordan Brand continues to roll out its Spring 2022 collection with the Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue.

In a style similar to classic Jordan 5s of the past, the Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue features a black Durabuck upper with signature TPU netted inserts and a reflective padded tongue. At the base, Racer Blue accents pop against a black midsole and icy translucent sole.

The Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue releases on Saturday, February 12th for $200 on the SNKRS app and in Jordan retailers.

ACRONYMⓇ x Nike Blazer Low

Prolific sneaker collaborator and Munich-based label ACRONYMⓇ demonstrates its focus on forward-thinking design with a new sneaker for the first time in almost four years: the Nike Blazer Low ACRONYMⓇ.

Arriving in both Black and Night Maroon colorways, the Nike Blazer Low ACRONYMⓇ draws inspiration from utilitarian garments. Its ballistic nylon upper with geometric laser-cut detailing is reminiscent of military ghillie suits. At the heel, removable TPU units that could be likened to futuristic armor add mechanical qualities. From there, an ACRONYMⓇ branded tongue with exposed foam edges brings some normalcy to this abstract silhouette.

The Nike Blazer Low ACRONYMⓇ releases on Thursday, February 10th for $140 on the SNKRS app and in select stores.

New Balance 993 Aimé Leon Dore Taupe

If you missed out on November’s release of the New Balance 993 Aimé Leon Dore, don’t worry: the Taupe colorway is receiving a global restock.

Nodding to New York City’s grittiness in the 1990s, the New Balance 993 Aimé Leon Dore takes its teal, taupe, and purple colorway from graffiti found in the city’s MTA subway system during that era. Premium suede, leather, and mesh construction adds an aura of grandeur to this street-ready masterpiece.

The New Balance 993 Aimé Leon Dore restocks on Thursday, February 10th for $230 on the New Balance website.

Air Jordan 5 Low Girls That Hoop (W)

Alongside the Air Jordan 5 Racer Blue, Jordan Brand also delivers another Jordan 5 in the women’s exclusive Air Jordan 5 Low Girls That Hoop.

Composed of Arctic Orange Durabuck and netted TPU underlays, the upper of the women’s Air Jordan 5 Low Girls That Hoop beams with a warm and playful vibe. Hits of a vibrant neon red on the tongue and midsole contrast to the design’s soft nature in a stylish fashion. A matching pink semi-translucent sole adds the finishing touches.

The Air Jordan 5 Low Girls That Hoop (W) releases on Friday, February 11th for $170 on the SNKRS app and in select Jordan retailers.

Nike Air Max 90 Golf Picnic

Nike is bringing the cookout to the golf course with the Nike Air Max 90 Golf Picnic.

The Nike Air Max 90 Golf Picnic captures the scenery of a picnic in the park. Red and white gingham plaid overlays and mudguards resemble commercially popular picnic blankets. A brown wicker-like mesh constructed upper carries the look and feel of picnic baskets. On the tongue, a “50th Annual Family Picnic” leather patch commemorates Nike’s 50th Anniversary.

The Nike Air Max 90 Golf Picnic releases on Wednesday, February 9th for $150 on the Nike website and in select stores.

adidas Ivy Park Ivy Heart Collection

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Ivy Park celebrates romance and self love with its adidas Ivy Park Ivy Heart Collection.

With the Stan Smith, Superstar Mule, Swim Slide, Savage V4, and Ultra Boost OG as focus silhouettes, the Ivy Heart collection balances warm, natural tones with vibrant reds and pinks in a way that is fitting for the occasion. Whether you are shopping for your significant other or treating yourself because you deserve it, there is a shoe for everyone in this extensive collection.

The adidas Ivy Park Ivy Heart collection releases on Wednesday, February 9th on the adidas CONFIRMED app with retail prices ranging from $60 to $200.
