The sneaker releases have certainly picked up after a slow January. This week, there’s new innovation, and reimaging of classic models. As always, the fun is in the chase. Let’s jump right into it.


ACRONYM x Nike Blazer Low “Black” & “Night Maroon”

ACRONYM designer Errolson Hugh is back with another Nike collaboration that pushes the boundaries of what a sneaker is. Once again showing us why he’s the G.O.A.T. techwear genius, he’s taken the Blazer Low and added a removable heel clip for easy entry as well as a dog tag for helping with the screws. A ghillie laser-cut upper done in suede combines a combat-ready look with some luxury. These arrive in both “Black” and “Night Maroon” on SNKRS app and at select retailers.


Release Date: February 10, 2021
Retail: $140
Resell pre-release: $250 – $285 (Black), $200 – $340 (Night Maroon)


Nike Air Trainer 1 “Coriander”

The Air Trainer 1 is one of the most versatile shoes you can invest in, great for both working out and the outdoors. Bringing it into the modern sneaker era, Nike has added a forefoot strap with a buckle instead of the usual Velcro. The mix of browns and yellows is very much in tune with the color palette that’s trending these days. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.


Release Date: February 11, 2021
Retail: $140
Resell pre-release: $175 – $250


Union LA x Nike “Passport Pack” Dunk Low “Pistachio”

One of three colorways for Union’s latest collaboration with Nike, the “Pistachio” will be dropping on a first come first serve online website. The entire “Passport Pack” is inspired by Chris Gibbs’ personal hunt for rare Dunk colorways back in the ’90s, aka the CO.JP era. In addition to this colorway, a blue/red and yellow/purple rendition will release in March. To cop these, hit up on February 11 at 12 PM EST.

Air Jordan 5 “Racer Blue”

All-black nubuck on the Air Jordan 5 has always looked great. For 2022, Jordan Brand has decided to give us a new vibe by adding in some Racer Blue on the midsole, lace lock, tongue lining and Jumpman logos. Paired with an icy outsole, this pair will be easy to dress up and down. Hit up SNKRS app to cop.
