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, Reebok revealed a new colorway of the DMX Trail Shadow Approach influenced by the great outdoors. The silhouette, which debuted last year, is a retro-outdoor-inspired take on the brand’s iconic DMX Trail Shadow.
Fans of ’90s gems can look forward to Nike re-releasing the Air Tuned Max for the first time ever in its original colorway. The brand is also gearing up for an additional Air Max celebration with a capsule that includes numerous models.
If Vans are your thing, you can take advantage of a new paisley pair from the California skate brand, as the Bold Ni has just arrived in two enticing looks. And for a non-sneaker option, British boot maker Hunter this week introduced a brand new mule in the form of the Play Clog.
Release Date: April 1
Editor’s Notes: The “Deep Forest” iteration of the DMX Trail Shadow Approach draws from green landscapes traversed while hiking and traditional mountaineering footwear of the same color. Inspired by ’90s hiking looks, the Reebok sneaker boasts an oversized mudguard that extends upward from the sole. While heavily influenced by the outdoors, the DMX Trail Shadow Approach is designed for urban wear and mountain exploration alike.
Release Date: April 3
Where to Buy: Nike SNKRS and select retailers
Editor’s Notes: Nike has something special in store for Swoosh stans beyond Air Max Day. At the beginning of April, the Air Tuned Max is returning for the first time ever, and in its original colorway. Undoubtedly ahead of its time, the old school Air Max model initially released in 1999. The 2021 iteration, however, has been updated with modern technology, while still being anchored by Tuned Air and that eye-catching iridescent finish.
