This week’s sneaker releases are likely several of the most anticipated drops occurring this year… and that’s no understatement.

That’s a question you can find the answers to below.

Nice Picks is a weekly column with our 5 favorite releases occurring this week. From in-line to collaboration to hype and everything in between, the team here at Nice Picks has selected our favorites. You won’t be disappointed with the selection.

5. adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 “Bright Blue”

adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Bright Blue”

Colorway: Bright Blue / Bright Blue / Orange
Style #: GZ0541
Release Date: April 17, 2021
Price: $240

The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 is releasing in one of its boldest arrangements yet. This iteration combines hues of “Bright Blue” and orange together, with a splash of dark green mixed in-between. White laces finish off the multi-dimensional sneaker.

4. Off-White x Converse Chuck 70

Off-White x Converse Chuck 70

Style #: 163862C
Release Date: April 15, 2021
Price: $130

The Off-White x Converse Chuck 70 has returned since its initial release several years ago. This iteration, differing from the initial colorway included in “The Ten,” features an all-white canvas upper with black text along the lateral side and black marking along the white midsole. Hits of orange appear in trademark Off-White fashion. If you’re a fan of the upper echelon partnership, consider just paying resale as these will definitely sell out fast (unless you’re just like…faster than bots).

3. Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance P550 Basketball Oxford

Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance P550 Basketball Oxford

Release Date: April 16, 2021
Price: TBD

Last year, Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance struck gold with their collaborative sets, particularly with the introduction of the 550. Having just established long term ties with each other, the dynamic duo has more planned for their “International Friendship Through Basketball” theme. With two new colorways in the fold, look for this collaborative drop to be extremely coveted.

2. Sean Wotherspoon x adidas ZX 8000 “SUPEREARTH”

Sean Wotherspoon x adidas ZX 8000 “SUPEREARTH”

Colorway: Off-White / Blue Bird / Red
Style #: GZ3088
Release Date: April 16, 2021
Price: $160

Sean Wotherspoon’s move to adidas has been seamless, in large part due to the sustainable motivations of both parties. Wotherspoon’s “SUPEREARTH” designs and adidas’ push for more recycled and vegan material constructions have aligned the duo together for a partnership likely to last. In their latest efforts, Wotherspoon has tapped the ZX 8000 for a environmentally friendly remake. This iteration features flower embroidery along a multi-color and multi-material construction. As a huge advocate of the Round 2 cofounder’s sneakers, this looks to be one of the best (albeit underrated) releases occurring this week.

1. Air Jordan 1 High OG “Hyper Royal”

Air Jordan 1 OG “Hyper Royal”

Colorway: Hyper Royal/Light Smoke Grey-White
Style #: 555088-402
Release Date: April 17, 2021
Price: $170

The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Hyper Royal” portrays similarities to 2019’s AJ1 “Turbo Green” through its vintage, suede build. This specific colorway pulls together hues of “Hyper Royal” and “Smoke Grey” to create a design that simply just works. One of the most anticipated colorways of the ever-so popular silhouette, these are going to be difficult to get your hands on. As such, you should mark your calendars for April 17 as we tap SNKRS at 10am for a retail W.
