The sneaker space is a fast-moving environment where releases come and go and are often forgotten before you know it, however here at The Sole Supplier we still believe that it’s not all about the latest and greatest “big thing”, and looking back at classic pairs from over the years is as important as ever. Alongside this, any real sneakerhead should also be eyeing up all the pairs that are yet to release and creating a virtual wishlist, making sure they’re as clued-up as possible on how to cop!
We’ve sat down and thought long and hard about upcoming releases and compiled some of our favourites into this list to showcase 10 pairs that we’re absolutely looking to cop in the coming months. Make sure to keep it locked in right here for all the latest news and updates regarding these pairs and so many more.
Air Jordan 1 High OG "Patent Bred"
Drawing inspiration from the original 1985 Air Jordan 1 “Bred” is this brand-new patent leather take on the classic that many sneakerheads are already eyeing up. While it’s not exactly a Bred reissue, it’s the closest that we’ll likely get for several years. Crafted from premium materials and coming in a limited-edition box, these are without a doubt one of the hottest Jordan releases on our radar right now!
Patta x Nike Air Max 1 "Monarch"
Amsterdam-based sneaker retailer Patta has a history of seriously hyped Air Max 1 collaborations and it’s been a while since we’ve seen the label set to work on a release. Previewed on the feet of Patta’s very own Edson Sabajo at Sneakerness Amsterdam, the “Monarch” colourway is rumoured to be inspired by the wavy design of the Air Max 2 and is the first altered Air Max 1 of its kind. Accompanied by the “Noise Aqua” colourway, these are set to be big hitters upon release.
Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1 "Cave Stone"
Love him or hate him, Travis Scott is undoubtedly one of the biggest collaborators in the footwear game right now, and he’s got big plans for the coming months. The “Cave Stone” colourway of his upcoming Air Max 1 project was recently unveiled and showcases a neutral-hued take on the classic sneaker with contemporary touches such as the Houston-based rapper’s signature reversed Swoosh. Could this be your first Travis Scott pickup?
Air Jordan 1 Element GORE-TEX "Shadow"
The Air Jordan 1 “Shadow” is a solid favourite with many team members here at The Sole Supplier, so how exactly can you improve on such a classic? It seems that Nike knows what’s up, as for the upcoming season the label has added GORE-TEX to the legendary colourway, in the process creating the ultimate winter sneaker! Guaranteed to get you through those miserable rainy months, these are a must-cop for any serious AJ1 collector.
Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1 "Baroque Brown"
It didn’t take long for Travis Scott to pop up on this list once again and this time around it’s in regards to the “Baroque Brown” variation of the Air Max 1. Offering up a much more familiar Travis look, this colourway combines dusty brown with hits of beige and red to form a desert-themed look that will go down an absolute treat with fans of the franchise. The design is finished off with rope-style laces which build upon the militaristic theme we’ve seen across several of Scott’s pairs in the past.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Marina Blue"
Another one for the Air Jordan 1 lovers is the upcoming “Marina Blue” colourway. Taking hints from the 1985 “Royal Blue” classic, this pair instead offers a reversed colour-blocking look that’s recently been seen across plenty of other AJ1 releases. Iconic features such as the wings logo, Swoosh and perforated toe box make these a rotation essential for any sneakerhead that’s worth their salt.
Yeezy 450 "Resin"
While some critics claim Kanye West’s Yeezy brand is slowing down, we beg to differ as it seems there’s some absolutely red-hot Yeezy releases on the way! The wild-looking 450 silhouette sent shockwaves throughout the community upon its initial launch, and now it’s set to take on the “Resin” colourway that we’ve seen on Yeezy Slides. If you’re looking for a controversial pair of kicks that will add some fresh flavour to your collection then look no further.
The Basement x New Balance 2002R
After a hugely successful Nike collaboration back in 2019, creative community The Basement are back at it again, this time joining forces with the hottest footwear brand on the market right now - New Balance. The duo have set to work on the popular 2002R silhouette to create two colourways, one decked out in light beige (pictured) and another in khaki-green, both finished off with black accents. Eagle-eyed footwear fans are already patiently waiting on these to drop and we can definitely see why!
JJJJound x New Balance 990v4 "Navy"
Let’s face it, anything JJJJound touches turns to gold, so when we heard that the design studio headed up by Justin Saunders was working on the New Balance 990v4 we already knew it was going to be a banger! The legendary dad shoe has been out of production for several years now, although it’s seriously missed by plenty of die-hard fans across the world. As well as reviving the silhouette, JJJJound has also dipped the sneaker in a deep navy colourway for a one-of-a-kind look that we’re totally here for. We can’t wait to see these release in the coming months.
UNDERCOVER x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Midnight Spruce"
Three-way collaborations are hot off the press right now, with plenty of big names getting involved including UNDERCOVER, sacai and Nike. The trio have already begun teasing their upcoming take on the double-stacked LDWaffle that many sneakerheads already know and love. Taking on a “MIdnight Spruce” colourway, the pair showcase shades of black, white and red for a timeless combination that we will absolutely be looking at getting out hands on!
