Summer is quickly approaching and that means the sneaker release calendar is only heating up. Here are the top sneaker releases that are going down this month for May 2022. 

April was all about pastel renditions for easter and the springtime but now that summer has quickly turned to the main focus, sneakers are getting brighter by the day and more plentiful as brands cash in for the new seasons’ demand. Let’s dive into what the month has to offer starting with adidas.


Much like months past, May 2022 will be dominated by Kanye when it comes to adidas’ lineup. Featuring a variety of different silhouettes, the hype is expected to be centered around the Yeezy 700 V3 Fade, 500 Granite, 450 Sulfur, YZY BSKTBL Azure and a restock of the coveted Onyx and Glow Green Yeezy Slides just in time for the warmer pool or beach days. It’s also rumored that bad Bunny’s adidas Forum Low collaboration in Blue may potentially be getting thrown into the month’s collection as well which is guaranteed to be a hit among fans.

While Nike has recently highlighted every month it looks like May might see the brand’s first slow down in terms of releases but that’s not to say the month won’t be special for the Swoosh. Starting with Dunks, the month will finally see the the Next Nature in Red along with the Fossil Rose, Court Purple, Bordeaux, Cider, Toasty, and Patchwork renditions all being scheduled for a drop in the next 31 days. Other drops from Nike include the anticipated Hello Kitty Presto, Off-White Air Force 1 Mid collection, and last but not least the Dunk High in the vibrant Hot Pink makeover.



Jordan Brand will be leading the May 2022 scene in terms of the number of releases with a variety of different silhouettes scheduled. Going in chronological order, the Air Jordan 1 will be dropping in the Heritage color scheme while also dropping in the Stash variation. The AJ1 Mid will also be dropping in two designs with the familiar Bred variation and the exotic Snakeskin both being set for later this month. A Ma Maniere will also be releasing their Air Jordan 2 collaboration while the Neapolitan Air Jordan 3 will also be dropping in a perfect mocha, white and pink colorway that many will be out to get. Other drops will be the Air Jordan 4 Military Black, Air Jordan 5 Green Bean, Clot’s Air Jordan 5 Low, the Air Jordan 5 Easter, Air Jordan 6 Navy, Air Jordan 9 Chile, and lastly the Air Jordan 11 72-10. Lastly, Zion’s signature shoe will also be featured in Naruto-themed makeovers which will also release alongside an official apparel collaboration.



Other notable releases scheduled for the month of May include the second Salehe Bembury x Crocs collaboration and the highly coveted JoeFreshGoods x New Balance 9060, both of which will not be an easy cop. Also, the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650 will be launching in four colorways.
