This weekly guide sorts the very best from the rest when it comes to the saturated world of sneaker releases, with information on prices and where to buy. Please note — some sneakers may sell out at speed.
Raffles, friends and family, and player exclusives — all of that before a mere mention of the many fire general sneaker releases out there. The world of sneaker drops can be a tricky place to navigate, but we’re here to help. Behold, the best of the best of what you can actually buy on the open market, right now.
This week entails wild choices by the likes of Eytys and Gucci, as well as staple (but still fire) selections from New Balance and Clarks.
The cream of the sneaker crop awaits you.
Shop the best sneaker releases on the market, as well as upcoming sneaker drops, below.
New Balance MS327
The '70s aesthetic is everywhere at the moment, from high fashion right down to sneakers. Case in point: the New Balance MS327 — available in three colorways but best, in my opinion, in this washed gold edition.
The Eytys Rei is a product of the strange times we live in. A WFH-ready slipper meets the space-ready sneaker aesthetic in a weird but kinda sick footwear option for warmer weather.
The ultra-clean Salomon Index.01 was born out of the brand's three-year-long experiment in the French Alps, resulting in a shoe that is entirely recyclable. The upper will end up as a ski boot one day. But right now, it's a super-lightweight running sneaker.
On the whole, I'm not usually a fan of Gucci footwear but I'm into this. Proof, if it was needed, of high fashion's continued obsession with the outdoors.
Clarks Originals x Sporty & Rich Wallabee
Emily Oberg's Sporty & Rich teams up with Clarks Originals, a British heritage brand that knows more than most about quality shoemaking. Colorways don't come much more spring-fitting than this one.
