This week’s sneaker releases give fans a second chance at the Union x Nike Dunk Low “Argon” and also introduces us to some new heat. The late Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White x Nike Blazer Low will finally release this week in addition to a new A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Aeon Active CX model. Without further ado, let’s jump right into it.

 

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

We already went into the explanation of the inspiration for this pair last week. Basically, an homage to a relic from the CO.JP days of Dunks, this once Japan-exclusive “Argon” blue colorway inspired Chris Gibbs’ with a translucent sole and the Union logo. The ripstop upper is a nice touch for those on the go. Hit up SNKRS app for your second chance.

 

Release Date: April 7, 2022
Retail: $150
Resell pre-release: $360 – $700

 

Off-White x Nike Blazer Low “White/University Red” & “Black/Electro Green”

Virgil dared to dream of a sneaker that incorporated basketball, skateboarding and trail running altogether, hence this iteration of the Blazer Low was born. With signature Off-White over laces and the exposed foam tongue as well as hang tag and SKU, fans will rejoice at the new TPU heel piece which draws inspiration from the Air Terra Humara silhouette. These will be available in both the white and black versions on SNKRS and at retailers like Feature, Bodega, END. and Extra Butter.

 

Release Date: April 8, 2022
Retail: $140
Resell pre-release: $250 – $450 (White), $250 – $460 (Black)

 

A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Aeon Active CX “Micro Chip and Healing Jade”

Samuel Ross loves exploring futuristic designs and teaming up with Converse for the first time, they’ve birthed the Aeon Active CX. This sneaker features Converse’s CX foam which is made with about 12% recycled scraps from the factory floor. Additionally, the stretch bootie is supposed to add comfort and ease to your daily routine. Priced relatively low compared to other futuristic models we’ve seen in the past, these will be a steal on SNKRS app and are ahead of their time.

 

Release Date: April 12, 2022
Retail: $160
Resell pre-release: $500 – $1,000

 

Nike SB Dunk Low “Polaroid”

Thanks to a delay, fans will get another chance at these early next week — sneaker shops released them this week. Polaroid’s “Beyond the Rainbow” campaign has been translated onto the iconic low-top sneaker with technicolor Swooshes. With reflective materials, custom embroidery and 7 different lace options, this is the perfect pair for the photographer in your life. SNKRS app to cop.

 

Release Date: April 12, 2022
Retail: $120
Resell pre-release: $185 – $290
