Another week, another SNKRS L… at least we hope that’s not the case.

For the first time this year, this week’s releases feature an abundance of HEAT. Jordan Brand has slated several of their hottest releases for this several day period, while brands like New Balance and ASICS continue to quietly release attention-worthy pairs.

Through our fourth iteration of Nice Picks, the team here at Nice Kicks has sifted through the noise to find the best releases this week. Take a look below at our picks and let us know if you’ll be copping any of these choices on social media.
