Off-White's back with a Blazer, and Union's making their mark on the Jordan 2. Here's your hottest sneakers set to drop this April!
Thought March's calendar was hot? April's doesn't dissappoint! Following the Jordan 6 UNC and Yeezy 350 V2 Oreo, spring colourways are out in bloom and head-turning collaborations have taken over. If you're looking for a refresh, you're in the right place. Here's our top pick of sneakers to keep your eyes on this April!
Union LA x Nike Dunk Low Agron - April 6th, 2022
Part of Union LA x Nike's Passport Pack, the Dunk Low Agron celebrates Tokyo. Dressed mostly in baby blue, the sneaker steers away from Dunk's traditional leather construction, opting for full grid-patterned uppers instead. Contrasting hues of gradient purple coat the quarter panels and collars, while exposed orange stitching outlines the shoe's various sections. Finally, Union branding appears on the lateral heels, affixed to the quarters and forefoot.

Off-White x Nike Blazer Low Black & White April 8th, 2022
Nike's final collaboration with Virgil comes in the form of two Nike Blazer Lows. Although the sneakers retain the Blazer's streamlined profile, they're typically Abloh in shape and form.
Dressed in Black and White, both styles feature circular punctures across the upper, an elongated midsole, additional lace loops and Helvetica branding on the medial side. On the white rendition - yellow coats the second set of laces and extended sole, while the Swoosh appears in red. On the black rendition - green coats the second set of laces and extended sole, while the Swoosh appears in black. On both, pops of blue are scattered across the shoe.

Union LA x Air Jordan 2 - April 8th, 2022
Union LA's second addition to our list was originally poised to release during the Holiday season. Dressed in premium suede, the ice-grey Jordan 2 features hints of yellowed-beige across the laces and lining, and rich pops of blue across the eyestayes and midfoot trim. A production sample-inspired tag sits on the collar, while co-branded elements stamp the tongue.

Jordan 5 Jade Horizon - April 9th, 2022
While early images appeared in March, the wait is finally over for the Jordan 5 Jade Horizon. The upcoming retro addition features a light green nubuck upper, continuing onto the laces. Pre-yellowed eyestayes, lace locks and outsoles provide a vintage flair, while a grey tongue and sock liner provide subtle contrast. Finally, a black coating of the midsole highlights the silhouette's infamous shark teeth.
