Another month, another round of fresh new kicks to add to your wishlist. This month we have a few fashion entries in the mix—with cool-girl labels GANNI and Mansur Gavriel both entering the sneakerverse alongside New Balance and VEJA respectively.
For purists, Nike is rounding out its Dunk Low drops of 2021 with a shiny new Dunk High, and New Balance's ultra-popular 550 silhouette is dropping in a bunch of new colourways.
Ready? Here are five of the best new sneakers dropping in April 2022.
Editor's Pick: GANNI x New Balance 2002R
Release Date: Wednesday 13 April
Shop: New Balance and GANNI
GANNI with New Balance feels like a natural fit. In fact, I reckon #GANNIGirls all around the world are probably used to pairing the Copenhagen-based label's cool-girl dresses, coats, and cardis with their fave New Balance 547s. Now the combo is complete with the GANNI x New Balance 2002R. The drop features two colourways—a muted grey and a bright turquoise. These will absolutely sell out fast so snap yours up here or here.
Nike x CLOT "FLUX DUNK"
Release Date: Saturday 16 April, 8pm
Longtime Swoosh collaborators CLOT are swinging a shiny new-look Dunk High our way this month. The high-shine metallic silver high tops are inspired by the Yin-Yang philosophy of fluidity and harmony and have been made using a special all-over lenticular material that gives the shoes a liquid metal look. Shop it here.
New Balance 550
Release Date: Thursday 21 April
Shop: New Balance
New Balance's new fave silhouette is the 550—and a bunch of new colourways are due to drop across the month—including a citrus number and some more subtle black, white and grey versions. The smooth cream colourway above is due to drop Thursday 21 April, but be quick—it'll definitely sell out. Shop here.
Veja x Mansur Gavriel Campo
Release Date: Friday 8 April
Shop: VEJA and Mansur Gavriel
Monochrome and colour-blocking are really having a moment right now—and this collab from planet-friendly sneaker brand VEJA and NYC-based accesories label Mansur Gavriel proves the point. The unisex Campo kicks come in creamy pink, butter yellow, bright sky blue, and vanilla. What a vibe. Shop here.
Nike Air Trainer 1 "Light Smoke Grey And Honeydew"
Release Date: Thursday 14 April, 8pm
This ultra-detailed redesign of Nike's famous 1987 cross trainer is back with a fresh mauve look. The utility-style forefoot strap seems to be a favourite feature for the Swoosh design team at the moment, but it feels right amongst the layers of this Air Trainer 1. Shop here.
