The Hyped Sneaker Releases of May 2021 at a glance

Summer is coming, very slowly at the moment, but it's coming. The big brands are releasing some hyped sneakers this month for the hopefully soon warmer days. Let's take a look at the upcoming sneakers and get an update on the latest styles. We show you which shoes you shouldn't miss this month below. Let's go!

Hyped Releases Nike

First we start with the upcoming Nike releases. For most shoe fans, Nike continues to be the driving force in the sneaker game. New collaborations and partnerships are always causing a stir, and we'll see them again this month. Minor spoiler: Ambush and also Supreme have done something exciting with Nike again for this month. As you can see, Nike SNRKS is on fire again in May!

The Ambush X Nike Dunk High 'Deep Royal Blue' will be released on 18 May 2021 and is the third collaboration between Nike and Ambush. Get more info about Ambush here.

The Nike Dunk Low Disrupt 'Pearl' will be released on 6 May 2021. Especially for women, the slightly wider Disrupt models are very popular.

Also, some Supreme x Nike Air Max will be launched on 6 May 2021.

All the Nike Dunk fans can also look forward to some releases in May. The Nike WMNS Dunk Low Gel 'Sunset Pulse' will be released for women as well as other unisex models. Hopefully we will see the long announced and often postponed Dunk Low 'Free 99' this month. It's due out on 25 May 2021. We are looking forward to it.

This is what the Jordan Brand has for us

Let's start with a Jordan 1 High Zoom and Mid model, which look very similar. The special thing about the Zoom models is the special Zoom technology. Unlike the classic Air Jordan, they don't use the Air technology we know. Nevertheless, the models are beautiful.

The often discussed mid models are also a great alternative to the quite expensive Jordan 1 High variants. Check out the Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT 'To My First Coach' and the Air Jordan 1 Mid 'To My First Coach' below. Details on the whole pack can be found here.

We also see a comeback of the Chicago colourway on an Air Jordan 1 this month. The Air Jordan 1 KO 'Chicago' will be released on 12 May 2021 and will cost €130.

Of course, a Jordan 1 High variant cannot be missing from the release reminder. The Air Jordan 1 High 'Shadow 2.0 will be released this month, on 15 May 2021 to be exact. If you follow the link below, you will find an overview with all retailers and upcoming raffles. Cost of the Jordan 1 High: 160€.

Air Jordan 1 High Shadow

In May, the trendy Air Jordan 4 silhouette will also be released in a clean colorway. The J4 Retro 'Tech Grey' will hit the stores on 29 May 2021 and is sure to create a lot of hype. The colorway is a good alternative to the 'White Cement' which is extremely popular in the sneaker community. Below you can also see the Rust Pink Jordan 3. You can find the whole Retro Line Up of the Jordan Brand here.

adidas Heat in May

Directly on 7 May 2021, the new models from the LEGO x adidas collaboration will be launched. The two have already released a ZX model and are now launching different colorways of the ZX 8000. Small LEGO details and distinctive adidas stripes in LEGO look make the collaboration really special.

Furthermore, we have a Pharrell Williams X adidas NMD waiting for us on 14 May 2021. We are talking about the NMD Hu 'Clear Aqua'.

Kanye West doesn't stop presenting more Yeezy models either and has already managed to create renewed hype with the Slides and the Foam Runner. Let's see if the upcoming models in May will be just as good.
