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 showing some love to Merrell's SS21 water shoe, the Hydro Moc. The polarizing design falls into the same category as the YEEZY FOAM RNNR and the Crocs Classic Clog, and with a retail price of $50, you really can't go wrong with the outdoor-friendly slip-on.

In other news, HOKA ONE ONE is gearing up to release another suede pack, as two of the brand's go-to runners have been given lifestyle makeovers. For an additional lifestyle shoe worth a look, Karhu is back with four new colorways of the Trampas for SS21.

Elsewhere, adidas is issuing another eco-friendly version of the Stan Smith, one that spotlights a beloved Star Wars character. And lastly, 43einhalb will soon be delivering part two of its collaboration with KangaROOS.

Read on to get the latest info about the Merrell Hydro Moc and more.

Merrell Hydro Moc

Release Date: Available now

Where to Buy: Merrell

Editor’s Notes: Merrell's water-ready slip-on is back in new colorways as a part of the brand's Spring/Summer 2021 1TRL collection. Optioned in black, kombu, and kangaroo iterations, the Hydro Moc stands out with its futuristic design that is primed and ready for warm weather wear. The shoe rivals that of the Crocs Classic Clog and the ever-popular streetwear favorite, the YEEZY FOAM RNNR, and can be secured for just $50. We highly recommend adding these to your summer footwear rotation.

HOKA ONE ONE "Suede" Pack

Release Date: May 1

Where to Buy: HOKA ONE ONE

Editor’s Notes: Following a stellar first release, HOKA ONE ONE is back with a second delivery of the "Suede" pack. This new capsule finds staple HOKA silhouettes in the Clifton and Bondi done up in supple suede. Each pair is showcased in an enticing monochromatic look, as the shoes are outfitted with the performance brand's innovative tooling to ensure your feet remain cushioned and comfy step after step.

Karhu Trampas SS21

Release Date: April 23

Where to Buy: Karhu

Editor’s Notes: After being reintroduced in 2019, the Trampas from Karhu is returning this month in a series of new colorways. The sneaker was first offered in the '60s as a running shoe that doubled as an everyday trainer, and it has since gone on to become a lifestyle favorite. The new models arrive with cow suede uppers and luxe leather linings, incorporating the iconic M logo and form stripes.

adidas Stan Smith "Yoda"

Release Date: May 5

Where to Buy: adidas

Editor’s Notes: As a part of its initiative to end plastic waste, adidas is releasing new sustainable iterations of the Stan Smith. For the thematic series, the brand previously spotlighted various Disney, Pixar, and Marvel characters, and now the focus is on Star Wars. With an eco-friendly upper composed of high-performance recycled material technology, known as Primegreen, and a recycled rubber outsole, this all-new Stan Smith celebrates Yoda. The Jedi Master is immortalized on the tongue of the iconic sneaker, while additional iconography appears on the heel tabs.

43einhalb x KangaROOS Ultimate

Release Date: April 30

Where to Buy: 43einhalb

Editor’s Notes: 43einhalb is continuing the story of its LUPUS character with a second collaboration alongside KangaROOS. The new chapter is being told through the Ultimate, which is limited to just 800 pairs worldwide. The sneaker interprets the LUPUS character with premium materials such as velour and nubuck leather, as the Ultimate emerges in shades of grey and blue.
