Spring Sneakers: The 5 Best Releases From Last Month

In case you haven’t noticed, spring is in town. Even though miss Rona is still here, right now might be the perfect time to shop for spring sneakers. You know, to complete your grocery-store-outfit. We’ve listed some of the best releases from the past month that are available right now. We are sorry for your wallet in advance.

1. COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck 70: new colorways

On top of this list, we present to you the new colorways of the famous Comme des Garçons x Converse chunks. These new colorways include a green, blue and pink, finished with the essential GDC heart on the side. The sneakers come, as always, in both high-tops and low-tops. A GDC x converse is always a great sneaker to complete your outfit. And these colors are just too cute if you ask us. Also, neon green is this spring’s go-to color, so you can’t go wrong with these.

Price: $150

2. Vegan Tabi Sneaker: new colorways

The Tabi Sneakers by the brand ILYSM that came out last year, got a new silhouette and colorway. With this release, ILYSM celebrates this year’s Earth Month. ILYSM is a conscious design label and creative studio co-created by former junior YEEZY designer Sara Jaramillo.

The sneakers are not only vegan, but they are also rendered in one piece of 3D-knitted recycled polyester yarn made from upcycled PET bottle waste. But that’s not all, ILYSM delivers also a removable sock liner footbed made of natural cork and two layers of recycled foam for support and cushioning. The shoe also features a split-toe Tabi outsole. If you are scared these sneakers might get dirty very quickly, no worries, they are also machine washable. The new colorways are lime, orange, lilac, camel, white and black. Perfect to complete a conscious spring look.

Price: $99

3. The Ultimate Dior x Air Jordan 1 Alternative

These Air Jordan 1s might remind you of a very highly anticipated collab, the Dior Air Jordan 1. Sadly, the date of this collaboration had to be postponed because of the coronavirus. To make up for it, Nike just dropped a new Air Jordan 1 Mid colorway “Light Ash”. Which is almost the exact same. Apart from the Dior logo missing, the gray outsole instead of a translucent one (which you can swap), and the price, you won’t notice the difference. These sneakers feature a white leather upper with gray overlays and is branded with the black Swoosh on the side, black Wings logo at the collar and a gray Jumpman logo on the tongue. A must-have for Air Jordan 1 lovers if you ask us.

Price: $137

4. Stampd x UGG Tasman

Stampd and UGG might just have created the most comfortable shoe ever. The sneakers are the ideal home wear, so perfect timing during these times while we are nothing but at home. The soft sneaker comes out in three different colorways, “Black Bandana”, “Vaporous Grey,” and just simply black. The shoe is constructed from soft canvas and lined with an UGGpure wool blend. The shoe is outfitted with an outdoor-ready Treadlite by UGG outsole and finished with rich suede trim and a beaded pull toggle. We actually can’t wait to show up for a video call with these.

Price: $175

5. Nike KD 13: new colorway

The newest KD13 design, “hype” was dropped by Nike on April 10. The shoes give us strong Versace vibes with the gold chain and flower graphics. It’s supposed to be a nod to hip-hop culture and fashion. Kevin Durant’s newest sneaker is branded with a large gold Swoosh on the later side and a smaller gold Swoosh on the medial side. Of course, the shoe is also provided with the KD’s logo on the heel. His name and jersey number are noted on the tongue.

Price: $160
