How did May score in sneaker drops? You're about to find out!
Anyone else feel like they blinked and hit June? Yep, we're with you. Luckily, Summer's finally here, and our shoedrobe is looking dope. Some hot sneakers crept up the ranks on our wishlists in May; Dunk killed it, and Yeezy pulled out the big guns.
If you're looking for a refresh, you've come to the right place. From the Dunk Low 'Dusty Olive' to new colourways of Yeezy's Foam RNNR, check out the sneakers we're still thinking about to this day!
CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 Kiss Of Death 'Cha'
Following the release of the iconic Kiss Of Death Air Max 1 in March, the 'Cha' colourway was the sibling us sneakerheads needed. Like its predecessor, the sneaker features earthy brown tones that wrap around various panels, and vibrant red hues across the swoosh. A transparent toe front, Chinese-inspired embroidery at the heel and CLOT's signature logo complete the look.
If you've got the OG version among your collection, you'd be foolish to turn a blind eye to this follow-up.
Nike Dunk Low 'Dusty Olive'
'Dusty Olive' was among a range of new Dunk colourways to drop this month - and it's got us feeling nostalgic in more ways than one. 'Ugly Duckling' pack, anyone? Unlike the traditional Dunk silhouette, the sneaker is dressed in green and brown buttery suede. A contrasting pop of gold hits the swoosh, laces and heel, and a fresh white midsole completes the design.
At first an understated addition to Dunk's 2021 lineup, the colourway finally got the recognition it deserved.
Nike Dunk Low 'Laser Orange'
Speaking of Dunk, 'Laser Orange' also made our list. First spotted way back when in 2020, we had a while to get excited about this one. The women's exclusive sneaker takes us back to grassroots Dunk; dual-tones, simple and leather panelled, with hits of vibrance on the upper body, swoosh and under sole.
It's the perfect Summer shoe, and it hit shelves just in time.
Yeezy 500 High 'Tactile Orange'
Ye's 500 High silhouette is still relatively new to the scene. Launching in 2019, it was a slow-burner... until this year, that is. The 'Tactile Orange', reminiscent of the 500 'Enflame', is one of five colourways to drop this year alone. The sneaker combines blue, brown and orange hues with dual materials - leather and suede. And as with all 500 silhouettes, the exposed underlays parade a breathable mesh construction.
It was a bold choice for Ye, and one that paid off.
Jordan 1 Retro High 'Shadow' 2.0
The OG Jordan 1 'Shadow' was renewed for a second season this May! Since 1985, the Jordan 1 silhouette has sat at the top of the sneaker leaderboard, and the 'Shadow' colourway has kept it firmly there. The shoe combines a bold, black leather base with light grey suede overlays to cement the colour-blocking we know and love. As expected, the classic Wings logo sits on the ankle flap, and a monochrome sole unit completes the look.
The 'Shadow' is classic Jordan through-and-through.
Yeezy Foam RNNR 'Mineral Blue'
Are Yeezy's Foam RNNR's responsible for the returning popularity of the humble Croc? It's more likely than not! Ye's Foam RNNR silhouette took the sneakerverse by storm when it first dropped last year. And since then, the brand has worked overtime to bring new colourways of the shoe to our shelves. 'Mineral Blue' is the newest addition to Ye's collection, and it's one of our favourites.
Nowadays, people are more willing to push the boundaries of fashion. And the Foam RNNR provides a helping hand!
