March was a great month for sneakers but April looks to be an even better one with Jordan Brand, Yeezy, Nike, and other brands all making their case.
April is always a fun month for sneakers with Spring officially here, as brighter colorways are ahead of us and brands always capitalize on the warmer weather and the demand. While last April we didn’t get too many releases with the pandemic just settling in and hitting the world, this April is needed, and by the early looks of it, we have a lot to look forward to.
Starting off with Nike, the Dunk theme looks to continue with the silhouette easily highlighting the Swoosh’s April 2021 lineup. Featuring a handful of different renditions, the Nike SB Dunk Low will call for the Wasted Youth collaboration along with the ACG Celadon rendition. To further the April collection, the Dunk Low will also be releasing in spring-minded renditions with the Lemon Drop, Free 99, Michigan, and Green Glow iterations all scheduled to drop, as well as the Sulfur High. Other Nike releases will include LeBron James’ Air Max 95, the Skepta Tailwind V, Nike GO FlyEase, and Opening Day celebratory editions with the LeBron 7 Baseball Blue and the Air Griffey Max 1 Jackie Robinson.
Taking a break from the big 3, other brands like Reebok, ASICS, and New Balance will also be giving their take to April via a couple of great collaborations. ASICS will be launching a collection with Coca-Cola while Reebok will be teaming up with Candy Land. Lastly, Nice Kicks will be releasing two New Balance 992 colorways in their collaboration with Amoeba Music. Collaborations aside, Reebok will be bringing back the Answer IV OG in White/Red.
The Three Stripes calendar for April will once again be highlighted by Kanye, who will be releasing a variety of different Yeezy’s this month. To start, the adidas Yeezy 700 Bright Blue will be dropping along with the 500 Enflame and 500 High Frosted Blue. It also appears the Yeezy Slides will also be releasing as well in Pure and Core. Bad Bunny will also make his second appearance with the Forum Low Easter Egg releasing on Easter Day that features a pink colorway many will be wanting to get their hands on. Finally, adidas will be collaborating with LEGO for a special edition Ultra Boost DNA.
JORDAN BRAND RELEASES
Jordan Brand will then highlight the month as they usually do with a full rollout of great sneakers that will be captivating sneakerheads all around the globe. The Air Jordan 1 will be dropping in the coveted Hyper Royal color scheme which will likely be the star of the entire month. Other AJ1 colorways will include the University Red Centre Court and the Zoom CMFT Fireberry. Alongside the 1s, the Air Jordan 4 UNC, Air Jordan 5 Raging Bull, Air Jordan 12 Low Easter, and Air Jordan 35 Smoke Grey are all expected to be hitting retailers this month.
