Editor’s Notes: Sneaker insider @py_rates_ has given us our first look at what is said to be this year’s “Halloween” Nike Dunk. The colorway boasts glow-in-the-dark details on the upper as well as the outsole, serving as the standout design elements. Sail-colored leather drapes the upper of the Dunk, which is then branded with an orange Swoosh. Black overlays complement the sail base to complete the design. Expect to hear more about this year’s “Halloween” Dunk as we inch closer to the holiday.
Release Date: April 8
Where to Buy: In-store and online at Noah
Editor’s Notes: Noah pays homage to the storied curbs of Venice, California for its latest collaboration with Vans. In teaming up with the brand’s Vault division, the East Coast label presents two colorways of the OG Style 24 LX that boast an abstract camouflage pattern. The Noah x Vault by Vans OG Style 24 LX comes optioned in Fuchsia/Black and White/Green with cream and black soles, respectively, and gum waffle outsoles. Noah’s logo emerges on the tongue to properly signal the collab.

Editor’s Notes: adidas is celebrating 4/20 this year with a new colorway of the ZX 1000. Aptly dubbed the ZX 420, the low-top sneaker finds shades of green and purple coming together throughout to mimic the look of a weed strain. A green-colored hairy suede covers much of the shoe, once again as a nod to cannabis. It remains to be seen when the ZX 420 will release in the US, as it has already launched overseas at select adidas retailers such as Wellgosh.
Release Date: Available now

Editor’s Notes: Shortly after releasing its SS21 1TRL collection, Merrell is back with a new collaboration alongside experimental art project, A.FOUR Labs. Also made for the spring/summer months, the joint capsule consists of three styles in the Moab, Chukka, and Chelsea. The Chukka and Chelsea are characterized by classic footwear styling, all while incorporating Merrell’s standout Jungle Moc tooling. The Moab, on the other hand, has been reworked to Chukka height, then boasting an asymmetrical lacing system. You can find the A.FOUR Labs x Merrell 1TRL collection available now in Europe through Merrell.com.
