5 Sneakers To Cop This Weekend and Where to Get Them

Hmm y'all gonna get these?

We’re back in action baby! This weekend has so many drops to look forward to and I for one cannot wait. We’ve got a few new Jordan’s in the mix, Zion Williamson releasing his first colorway, and the Nike Space Hippie shoes dropping today as well. I think out of all the new releases this week, I am most excited for Zion’s. It's always a big moment when an athlete drops their first signature silhouette, and it’s dope to see both their excitement and the overall reaction to the sneakers. I imagine that is probably one of the coolest feelings in the world. I’m talking a lot, so let’s get into five sneakers you should have on your radar this week.

1. Jordan Zion 1 ‘Gen Zion’

Release Date: 4/23

Since I hyped up Zion so much in the intro I might as well kick this list off with the first iteration of the ‘Zions.’ The first of four drops scheduled through the end of May, the ‘Gen Zions’ are a black and white colorway that I think is pretty unique in terms of its design. I’m feeling the color mixtures and the graffiti writing on the inner part of the shoe. Zion has three more anticipated shoes on the way over the next few weeks, so if you don’t get your hands on this pair, you’ll have a couple more shots.

2. Nike Space Hippie 03

I'll admit that I have passed on most of Nike’s Space Hippie’s releases, but I have to say that these have caught my attention. I know the theme is ‘space,’ but man these sneakers are outer space to the fullest. Oddly enough, the Hippies have got all of the features that I typically wouldn’t like in a shoe, but somehow they combine together very well. The overall color combo and design makes the sneaker appear as they may not be versatile enough, but they are. You could do a lot with these if you get creative in your closet. You could also opt for the Space Hippies 01s if those are more your speed.

3. HUMAN MADE x Adidas Forum Lows

Release Date: 4/24

I’m still determined to not make these lists Jordan/Nike heavy, so in staying true to that, I’m going to go with the Human Made x Adidas Forum Lows next. I personally think what makes this shoe so great is the vintage 90s appearance. 90s and Y2K fashion as a whole seems to be making a comeback, and these look like they could have been released in 1990. The shoe sports a burgundy and grey leather upper, and features HUMAN MADE’s signature logo. What do y’all think? Are you guys feeling this collab?

4. Puma Disc Rebirth

Sticking with the non-Nike theme, the Puma Disc Rebirth is worth checking out again. The bright neon red and yellow is perfect, and while laces can definitely be a make or break component to a sneaker, sometimes it’s cool to go without them. Some may disagree (I know people who refuse to wear sneakers without laces), and some are okay with it. Different strokes for different folks.

5. Nike Air Griffey Max 1 To The Plate

Release Date: 4/24

Yeah I know I said I wasn’t doing anymore Nike drops this week, but there was no way I could leave out the new Griffey’s. One of the swaggiest people to ever walk the face of this planet, Griffey has always had an amazing shoe game and dope sneaker drops through the years . A tribute to Jackie Robinson, the shoe honors the legend with his famous quote “There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free,” and given the events of these past few weeks, these shoes are coming at just the right time.

As usual I’ll be back next week with another round of selections. In the meantime you can keep up with me on IG and Twitter.
