The Best Sneakers Set To Drop In 2021…

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Metallic Silver’

Announced back in May, the Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Silver is rumoured to drop in the early months of 2021. Metallic-silver panels adorn the upper and a jet-black Jordan Wings logo sits on the ankle to enhance the look. The toe box is notably missing the style’s signature breathable perforations and the brand’s legendary Jumpman logo features only on the midsole rather than in the tongue.

Nike Dunk Low Pastel Photon Dust

Pastel Nike Dunk Lows

The release we’re looking forward to the most is the pastel Nike Dunk Low drop. Releasing in a line-up of pastel hues including ‘White/Photon Dust’, ‘Sail/Crimson Tint’ and ‘White/Grey’, we want to add each and every one of these sneaks to our collection! The pretty pink offers up serious springtime vibes and the pastel green iterations are just made for those summertime events! We reckon these will drop in spring 2021, but an official release date hasn’t been announced for the Pastel Dunk Lows just get.

Nike Air Force 1 07 Low QS 2021 Valentine Pink Foam

Nike Air Force 1 ‘Valentine’s Day 2021’

We know, it’s way too early to be thinking about Valentine’s Day, but hey! Nike doesn’t GAF about the rules. Just this week, images of the 2021 Valentine’s Nike Air Force 1 were unveiled, and it looks like next year’s V-Day is going to be all about pink and red. The images showed a classic AF1 with pastel pink panels and bold red Swooshes on the sides, toe box and heel.

 Another AF1 that’s set to launch next year is the hotly anticipated OVO x Nike Air Force 1. Designed in collaboration with Drizzy Drake himself, this sneaker is being kept super hush hush, so we don’t know anything about it yet – including what it’ll look like or when it’ll drop. But we can safely assume that somewhere on the sneaker, Drake’s OVO Owl logo will make an appearance. We’re super excited to hear more about this release and, obviously, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more!

Jordan 1 High Court Purple

Air Jordan 1 High ‘Court Purple’

Set to launch next April, the Nike Air Jordan 1 High Court Purple features the same crowd-favourite metallic purple accents we saw on this year’s Jordan 4 ‘Metallic Purple’. A retro silhouette with endless styling potential, the hits of bold colour on this sneak will ensure it sells out before you can say “Jumpman”.

Best Sneakers 2021 - Supreme Nike Dunk

Supreme Nike SB Dunk Low

2003’s Supreme Dunk Highs are still relevant today. In fact, they’re worth thousands of dollars on the aftermarket because they’re some of the best sneakers out there. And back then, a low-top version of the kicks was canceled due to legal issues. In 2021, almost 18 years later, the kicks will comeback in a low-top, but with no legalities! The same golden stars will be on the side panels to give us the cool Supreme vibes. Finally, the available colorways will be black, brown, blue, and green! And it seems like we’ll have to wait for the 2021 seasons for actual release dates.

Best Sneakers 2021 - CLOT Air Max 1 Kiss of deathCLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death”

So, 2020 and 2021 really are the years we go back to the oldies, aren’t they? The CLOT and Nike collabs went on everybody’s radar when they did the AF1s. However, these were not the first releases. In fact, the Kiss of Death Air Max 1 is one of the earlier collabs between the two companies. The 2006 design is inspired by the Chinese art of pressure points. Although the name “Kiss of Death” is a pretty grim idea, the kicks are definitely very popular. They’re actually worth $1,500+ on the aftermarket! In 2021, CLOT and Nike are celebrating this pair’s 15th anniversary by dropping it once again. So make sure you follow this pair closely, it’ll be worth it.

Best Sneakers 2021 - Jordan 1 Trophy Room

Air Jordan 1 x Trophy Room

Trophy Room is Marcus Jordan’s store, and it’s like stepping into MJ’s actual trophy room. In fact, it was the actual inspiration for the business. Trophy Room and Jordan Brand collaborated on different occasions. And one of the most famous collabs is the friends and family red Jordan 4. So this year, a new Jordan 1 collaboration might be happening. If true, the kicks will feature the OG red and white colorway along with MJ’s signature. So we’ll just wait and see!

Best Sneakers 2021 - Off White Jordan 4 Bred

Off-White x Jordan 4 Bred

Will Virgil Abloh strike again with a new Jordan collab? Although we saw the Bred 4s in his Figures of Speech exhibition, we can’t know if they’ll actually drop. We still remember the canary yellow Jordan 1 disappointment. Nevertheless, the kicks feature the OG Bred colorway with Abloh’s touches. In other words, he slapped the Off-White tag and “AIR” branding on there, with a bit of see-through material.

Here we are, back at it with Supreme kicks! Rumor has it that Supreme will feature a Flax-colored edition of the monochromatic Air Force 1. This time, they’re dropping the leather in favor of suede! The Supreme Bogo will also be on the heel as usual.

Best Sneakers 2021 - Travis Scott AJ6 British Khaki

Travis Scott AJ6 British Khaki

Now that one is a long shot, but we’ll definitely keep our fingers crossed! Travis “accidentally” showed off the kicks back in April during a live story. And according to leak accounts, the Houston rapper is cooking up something with Nike! So will Travis’ latest collab be the Khaki colored 6s? Some fans are still bitter about the olive Jordan 6, so this could be a cool second chance! But definitely not without a sneaker bot.
