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 the new Vans collaboration from Los Angeles-based brand, Kids of Immigrants. A followup to their debut footwear release, the new project centers around the iconic Old Skool, arriving in celebration of KOI's five-year anniversary celebration. With no shortage of co-branded efforts on the way, Vans also has a collab with C2H4 in the works, this one featuring the Old Skool as well, in addition to the Era.

In other sneaker news, ASICS' long-distance runner, the GEL-NIMBUS 23, is now available in a more sustainable iteration constructed from recycled materials. PUMA is then celebrating the release of J. Cole's new album, The Off-Season, with a bright red colorway of DREAMER 2, going by the same name. And lastly, Reebok continues to revive original colorways of Allen Iverson's Question model, as the low-top "Grey Toe" colorway is returning in just a matter of days.

Read on to get the latest info about the Kids of Immigrants x Vans Old Skool and more.

Kids of Immigrants x Vans Old Skool

Release Date: May 19

Where to Buy: Kids of Immigrants

Editor’s Notes: The second footwear collaboration between Kids of Immigrants and Vans serves to celebrate the LA brand's fifth anniversary, as well as the community that nurtures the label. The project finds the classic Old Skool sneaker emerging in a mismatched look, ultimately blending two classic colorways into one style. Featuring a double tongue and an aged sole, the sneaker incorporates the message: “We Are All Cut From Different Fabrics But Together Make A Whole.” Kids of Immigrants x Vans is releasing in two parts, with the first launch scheduled for May 19 on the KOI website and the second slated for May 26 through the Greenhouse app.


Release Date: Available now

Where to Buy: SSENSE

Editor’s Notes: Whether for performance or for style, you can't go wrong with the GEL-NIMBUS 23 from ASICS. The low-top model is noticeably lightweight and breathable, and is made for long runs – or – strolling comfortably around town, if you prefer. This particular iteration of the shoe is distinctive, however, as it is constructed from recycled materials, coinciding with ASICS' sustainability initiative.

Reebok Question Low “Grey Toe”

Release Date: May 21

Where to Buy: Packer

Editor’s Notes: The next original colorway of the Reebok Question Low to return is the ultra-clean "Grey Toe" pair. The neutral rendition follows the recent release of the "Green Toe" Question Low, and it will be available initially through Packer on May 21. It has yet to be confirmed, but a wider release is expected, reportedly taking place on June 10.

C2H4 x Vans Vol. 2

Release Date: May 27

Where to Buy: c2h4losangeles.com

Editor’s Notes: Yixi Chen‘s C2H4 is currently prepping the release of a new Vans collaboration, one that includes the Era, Old Skool, and Mountain Edition. Inspired by Sci-Fi movies from the '70s, '80s, and '90s, each sneaker from the collection represents a different character in C2H4's hypothetical universe. The Era is optioned in white or black, featuring contrasting outsoles and the phrase “CRAFTED MEMORY CONSTRUCTION GUIDE. BY C2H4® HUMAN DATA STORAGE CORP.” on the foxing tape. The Old Skool arrives in dark grey/black, crafted from suede and canvas, and boasting metal eyelets and lace tips. Lastly, the Mountain Edition, or MTE, combines blue suede and black canvas with a luminous outsole. Look for the new C2H4 x Vans footwear to release alongside a range of matching apparel.

PUMA DREAMER 2 “Off-Season Red”

Release Date: May 21

Where to Buy: The PUMA NYC flagship, PUMA.com, and select retailers

Editor’s Notes: Two of J. Cole's passions collide (music and basketball) in an upcoming release of the DREAMER 2 from PUMA. Arriving in celebration of the rapper's long-awaited new album, The Off-Season, this fiery red colorway of the hoops shoes goes by the same name. Look for the sneaker to release on May 21 for $130.
