We have witnessed a ton of intriguing sneaker releases so far this year. Releases such as the “White Cement” Air Jordan 3, the “Sport Red” Nike Air Griffey Max 1 and the “Dark Neon Royal” Nike Air Foamposite One have undoubtedly forced many sneaker aficionados to get out and hunt for their favorite kicks. We are now midway through 2011. What’s next?

We have compiled a list of 22 sneakers (plus two bonuses) to look forward to for the rest of 2011. Sneakers such as the “Emerald Green” Griffey Max 1, the Air Jordan 5 Black/Metallic Silver and the “Concord” Air Jordan 5 and many more make appearances on this list. Which upcoming release is at the top of your list? View our 22 Sneakers to Look Forward to for the Rest of 2011.

Air Jordan 7 “Cardinal”

Original Debut: November 1992
Expected Release: June 18, 2011

We kick off our “22 Sneakers to Look Forward to for the Rest of 2011″ list with the “Cardinal” Air Jordan 7. This shoe barely made the list considering its release date is only three days away. Although Jordan Brand has released multiple Air Jordan 7 colorways this year, the return of the “Cardinal” colorway may be the most anticipated with the exception of the “Bordeaux” AJ7.

    I really dont know why those Jeremy Scott pandas are even on this list. Not really great at all in my opinion, and I really can’t see a grown man wearing those Unless he’s gay. But alas, to each their own.

    No offense and I hope none is taken.

    • Yeah, I’ve been hearing 2012 for those. There’s no “Laney/Grape Pack” nor a “Columbia/Concord Pack.”

      2012 is gonna be HUGE though, just off the White/Cement IV’s, Chicago X’s, Columbia XI’s…

      yep itz in da pattern like da doernbecher 4s watever retro dats goin to hot in the beginning of 2013 is goin b da doernbecher of the end of 2012

  2. Kingpharmc

    These are dope; I freaking love pandas. Now I don’t have to kill one and make shoes out of it. They did it for me…

  3. 2-A-Those

    i just clicked on 24 to see the whole list…ill be damned if? click ‘next” 22 damn times!!! anyway…..
    where is the grape laney pack?!?!?

    • Williamsrob10

      Hell yea bra….they slippin on them Quai 54’s and the color way is too nice and they slippin on them grapes too…..but they give them stealth 3s a spot on the list…I already kno some people probably goin disagree wit me sayin that but them stealth’s are jus ugly as Fukk it jus seem like the c/w doesnt belong on the 3’s….I feel they could’ve slap that color on them 6’s that probably out a lot better….#imjussayin

    • Guest

      hell ya i mean i am upset dat da grapes & lanelys rnt droppin but da quais r fire dat watever da most anticapated sb dat will drop step ya game up NK

  4. Stevebcentral

    i knw most ppl most anticipated shoe is the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” but out off all I got my eyes on the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement”

  5. sneaks

    must cops for me: ronnie fiegs, solar red lebrons, dark pine pros, tim duncan foams, concords, cement 3s, dorenbecher 4s if theyre good, the hyperfuse air maxes, maybe the yeezy 2s. idk though.
    black metallic vs are up there but loosk like my wallet will be not too bad this year since thats only 9 shoes

  6. Easy_E

    Yo for real Ronnies mints going to kill it, always count on the homie to use highest quality materials for the price.

  7. Trey Kicks

    I seen a 2012 sample pair of black cement 3s yesterday on sneakernews and they replaced the outside leather with nubuck

  8. my top five are Griffey Emerald, Concord, lebron 8 solar red, dark pine, and black cement.? Those are in order but since i prolly won’t cop the solars, i’m throwing last shots in there as a bonus!

  9. Metmanaman

    How can the Swizz beats be considered a success? ?They only sold like 75 of each color last I checked lol. ?That’d be like a shoe customizer calling his one-off creation a big success because he sold it lmao.

  10. Joe

    only one i might be interested in is the doernbecher ivs.? why are people loving those jordan fusion yeezys?? they hating on every other fusion except if its limited and stamped with yeezy on it.

  11. Evan Anderson

    Fieg’s Mints, Black Cement 3’s, Doernbecher 4’s, Wingtip Janoski’s, Tan Duckboot, AM1 Hyperfuse, Yeezy 2, and the NICEKICKS NEW BALANCES NO DOUBT!

    a lot to be excited about. Concord 11s, Cardinal 7s, and Black Metallic 5s are definites for me but i may end up getting the Black Cement 3s, Stealth 3s, and Last Shot 14s as well. them Griffey’s are sick too and those Kamikazee’s grow on me more every time i see ‘em. have to see what my ends are like when they roll around, those first 3 are must haves for me though.

  13. 7JaysAWeek

    i cant even see the f’n page numbers. all there is are the cardinals and below all the pictures is a clickable red box -_-

  14. HOLY FUCK!! Those Hyperfuse Air Force High’s are an IMMEDIATE cop!! O-fucking-D!! Ready for the Foamposite Max, Concord XI, The XI IE Low, Mint Asic Gel Lyte III and the Retro Pro.

    I may actually try copping the 2005 Air Jordan XIV’s instead of this year’s. I’ve already been on the hunt for them and I’m not so much a “quality” beast, but I almost have them RIGHT in my hands.2011 is gonna be great!! 2012 possibly better!

  15. Artgdf

    lmfao you guys are a bunch of hypbeats…

    Air Yeezy 2’s? Are you kdding me?

    Doesn’t even come close to the concord 11’s and ASG Crazy 8’s.

  16. I’m looking forward to the Solar Red Lebrons, and I can’t wait to see your collab with New Balance!
    Obviously I’m waiting to see the final Yeezy 2s as well

  17. Concords, Air Yeezy 2, Doernbecher4s,?Black Cement 3s, Last Shot, ASG Crazy8s, Dark Pine foams, Max foams, Solar red lebrons, stealth 3s, griffeys, Mint Asics, retro Foams = COP + BROKENESS lol

  18. Billionaire$neakerhead

    Uhmmmmmm 2 concords, 2 retro foams, foam tempos, lebron 8 low red and wolf greys, then the stealth then I’ll check da pockets

  19. Automatix

    Black Cement IIIs top the list for me.? Concords are dope but I got OGs already, so prolly get a pair but not as pumped about em.? Blk/Metallic V’s & DEFINITELY Emerald Griffey 1s and maybe Stealth IIIs & thatps it for me the rest of the year.
