Hello Air Max Day.

It’s another fully loaded week of sneaker releases as we’ve already officially welcomed spring time. With March Madness in full effect, the unofficial Nike Air Max Day holiday, and plenty of sun in the forecast, let’s jump right into it.

 

adidas YEEZY 450 “Cinder”

adidas has upped its output of YEEZY sneakers to basically 2 or 3 pairs a week now. Following the release of its YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Bone” and YEEZY BOOST 700 “Waverunner” restock, we’re getting a new 450 colorway. This color is a little too dark for the warmer months but you can stock them for about half a year, especially since it’ll drop in a family size run. Hit up CONFIRMED and select retailers to purchase.

 

Release Date: March 24, 2022
Retail: $210 (Adults), $145 (Kids), $125 (Infants)
Resell pre-release: $370 – $700

 

 

Air Jordan 3 “Muslin”

We’ve seen a lot of interest and love for off-white and beige colors in recent years, a lot of which should be credited to Virgil Abloh. For this week’s release, Jordan Brand has taken the Air Jordan 3 and covered it with a heavy duty canvas upper in that creamy white color and added Cement Grey suede to offset it. Little specks of University Red in the accent details and some Sail on the midsole really bring this one to life. Hit up SNKRS app and select retailers like Feature to cop.

Resell pre-release: $370 – $700

 

Nike Air Max Day Air Max 1 collection (“Blueprint,” “La Ville Lumière” and “Premium” aka “Wabi-Sabi”)

March 26 is the unofficial Nike Air Max Day holiday and this year, the Swoosh is dropping 3 region exclusive Air Max 1 sneakers to celebrate. North America will get the “Blueprint” which honors the original technical drawing of the AM1 on the insole and features a brush-off leather Swoosh, globe graphic on the heel, tumbled leather on the upper and glow-in-the-dark outsole. Europe gets an exclusive “La Ville Lumière” version which combines nubuck and iridescent panel overlays. Finally, Asia and Latin America receive the “Premium” which has an assortment of materials like canvas, nubuck, suede and tricot knit, all speaking to Japanese craftsmanship. Each pair has “3.26” on the tongue to commemorate the date and each will be available through SNKRS app in select regions and at select retailers like FeatureEND., and atmos.

 

Release Date: March 26, 2022
Retail: $160
Resell pre-release: $250 – $360 (Blueprint), $300 – $580 (La Ville Lumière), $260 – $360 (Wabi Sabi)

 

Air Jordan 5 “Jade Horizon”

The AJ5 rarely gets new colorways, but when it does, you can always count on the shark tooth detailing to make the colorway pop. With a Desert Sand and Light Silver combination on this pair, the contrasting black midsole and pre-distressed outsole add to the silver cement speckles of the previously mentioned signature design element. You don’t have to worry about the translucent parts yellowing if they already come like that. Hit up retailers like Feature to enter raffles.

 

Release Date: March 26, 2022
Retail: $190
Resell pre-release: $220 – $350
