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’s selection is a bold mix of flavors and styles. To kick things off, we’ve got a ’90s-flavored collaboration from CDG and Nike. Following that up, we’ve selected our favorites from Reebok and Salomon (both of which are collabs), as well as some more left-field choices by way of Italy’s Sunnei and NYC’s ALIFE.

The cream of the sneaker crop awaits you.

What makes COMME des GARÇONS x Nike collaborations so great is that the duo is always working on unexpected models. The latest, the Air Carnivore, is a pure’90s beast and one for those that know.

I’m normally not a fan of luxury brands reworking sportswear silhouettes, as I think they’re usually lazy and ruin a classic. But I can definitely get behind this ’00s-style Giv 1.

When life gives Boris lemons, he makes great sneakers. This Bamba2 Low is one of the designer’s best collaborative Salomon silhouettes, both because of colorways like this one and because it’s a surprisingly comfortable shoe.

Because Crocs, YEEZY Foam Runners, and Merrell Hydro Mocs seem to be the style of the moment, we couldn’t ignore Sunnei’s latest drop.

I’ve said it before and I’ll call it again: the Reebok Zig 3D Storm Hydro is an early contender for sneaker of the year, and it’s thanks to colorways and collaborations like this. What a shoe.
