Nice Picks: This Week’s Top Sneaker Releases

As usual, there is no week where sneaker collecting halts. Everyday, there is a new silhouette/colorway/collaboration that speaks to us, and a result, we have to cop. This week’s releases have several drops 100% worth copping.

Every week on Nice Picks, the Nice Kicks team curates their top sneaker releases occurring. From in-line to collaboration and from Nike to ASICS, we sift through the noise to find the best releases occurring. Without further ado, let’s hop right into the list.

5. adidas Forum 84 Hi “Orbit Grey”

adidas Forum 84 Hi “Orbit Grey”

Colorway: Grey One/Orbit Grey/Footwear White
Style #:FY4576
Release Date: March 20, 2021

One of adidas’ strongest silhouettes, the Forum 84 Hi has seen a massive resurgence over the past several months. Arriving in one of its cleanest color pallets yet, this iteration features a combination of neutral hues. Finished with an ankle strap, look for this to be a certified banger sneaker that everyone can cop.

4. Reebok x adidas ZX Pump “A-ZX”

Reebok x adidas ZX Pump “A-ZX”

Colorway: Aqua / Citron / Reebok Red
Style #: FZ1877
Release Date: March 19, 2020
Price: $180

In a fusion of brands, Reebok and adidas have combined two of their classic silhouettes, the Pump and the ZX, together to create the ZX Pump. This fusion combines the upper of the ZX, with various elements of the Instapump Fury, and places it atop the latter’s sole. We rarely see two brand’s cross paths like this, thus making it one of the more interesting releases occurring this week.

3. adidas Yeezy QNTM “Sea Teal”

Colorway: Sea Teal / Sea Teal / Sea Teal
Style #: TBA
Release Date: March 19, 2021
Price: $250

I remember when the OG adidas Yeezy QNTM came out and it was almost as if the ‘Ye catalog was given a rebirth. Unfortunately, the QNTM hasn’t had as much success selling as I thought they would (I LOVE THIS SILHOUETTE!). Among the previous colorways, the “Sea Teal” iteration speaks as one of the best colorways to release, with a hint of teal running through a grey gradient upper. My favorite adidas x ‘Ye silhouette, this sneaker will be on my radar come March 19.

2. Bad Bunny x adidas Forum Low Buckle Low “The First Café

Bad Bunny x adidas Forum Buckle Low “The Midnight Café”

Release Date: March 17, 2021
Price: $160

Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny and adidas are meeting in a clash of fire power through the Forum Low. Predominantly made up of brown tones, different shades traverse the silhouette. Unlike other Forum Lows, this pair will also feature a strap and a lace holder around the heel. Bad Bunny’s favorite shoe as a kid, be sure to cop your pair exclusively on the adidas CONFIRMED app.

1. Air Jordan 3 “Midnight Navy”

Air Jordan 3 “Midnight Navy”

Colorway: Midnight Navy/Cement Grey-White
Style #: CT8532-401
Release Date: March 20, 2021
Price: $190

Among the Jordan rotation, the Air Jordan 3 has remained a classic. This Georgetown-inspired colorway features “Midnight Navy” and elephant print, all over a white and grey base. Anytime an AJ3 drops, attention should always be paid. I expect the pair to be like the UNC 3s, with more appreciation given as time passes. As such, this is my favorite release occurring this week.
