The first half of 2021 has passed and with it, handfuls of impressive sneaker releases. We’ve already ranked the “Top 10 Sneakers of 2021 (So Far),” but are fully aware that some of the year’s most exciting drops are ahead of us.
From long-rumored collaborations to first-time retros confirmed via official product images, hundreds of sneaker releases have been teased for the remaining 177 days of the year. And while we’d like to discuss dozens of them ad nauseam, we’ve narrowed them down to the 10 most anticipated pairs at the time of publication.
All lists are subjective, but we’ve taken into account numerous criteria – including search engine inquiries and social media response – with the aim of landing on a Top 10 in which savvy and casual sneaker fans alike will find merit. If your picks and/or order aren’t reflected on this list, that’s perfectly fine; the beauty of this game is that everyone is entitled to their opinion (let us know yours via @sneakernews).
