Sneakerheads are bombarded with news of upcoming releases on a daily basis. To save you some time from searching each and every site and leak account, we've taken it upon ourselves to sift through the onslaught and bring you a few noteworthy kicks that have captured our attention.

Today, we're taking a look at Better™ Gift Shop's second collaboration with Salomon, as the Toronto retailer has once again delivered a shoe that is at home in the streets and on the trails.

And while the new Better™ Gift Shop x Salomon drop is forthcoming, you can go ahead and take advantage of another enticing collab, courtesy of Dover Street Market and Vans. DSM has reimagined Vans' iconic checkerboard motif, implementing the design on three staple silhouettes.

In other collaborative news, Rick Owens is back with new colorways of VEJA's Runner Style 2, and atmos is gearing up for the release of an intriguing adidas collab, one that spotlights the always-popular Superstar.

Read on to get the latest info about the Better™ Gift Shop x Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX and more.

Better™ Gift Shop x Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX

Editor’s Notes: Better™ Gift Shop's second collaboration with Salomon Advanced is inspired by the everyday happenings of the Better™ team. This new version of the X Ultra 3 GTX largely features earth-toned hues as a nod to classic hiking footwear. A low-top hiking shoe and trail running sneaker hybrid, Better™'s X Ultra 3 GTX is packed with foam cushioning to offer comfort each step of the way, while mud guards and integrated rubber toe caps provide protection from rocks, roots, and even city curbs. The Better™ Gift Shop x Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX is made for technical hikes, relaxed urban strolls, and everything in between.

Dover Street Market x Vans Checkerboard Collection

Where to Buy: Dover Street Market

Editor’s Notes: Dover Street Market has reworked Vans' signature checkerboard pattern for its latest collaboration with the California brand. Now featuring the DSM hut logo, the motif is applied to three staple Vans silhouettes in the Slip-On, Authentic, and Old Skool. Each pair appears in a white and black colorway, with a canvas upper and waffle outsole.

Rick Owens x VEJA Runner Style 2

Editor’s Notes: For SS21, Rick Owens and VEJA are introducing four new colorways of the Runner Style 2: Pop Pink, Full Black, Honey, and Oyster. Created with sustainability at the forefront, the low-top sneaker features a V-Knit upper made from 100 percent recycled polyester obtained from plastic bottles, a midsole made from 57 percent sugar cane and 5 percent banana oil, and a sole unit made from 30 percent natural rubber from the Amazon and 31 percent rice waste.

atmos x adidas Superstar "Denim"

Release Date: April 17

Where to Buy: In-store and online at atmos

Editor’s Notes: The new atmos x adidas Superstar boldly uses denim on the upper of the classic sneaker. Light and dark blue-colored denim comes together on the pair, which welcomes exposed bronze stitching as a complementary design detail. On the heel you will find a special adidas carabiner that completes the look of the jeans-inspired makeup. The more you wear the collaborative Superstar, the more the texture of the denim will change, leaving you with a truly unique pair of sneakers.
