With only one week left in 2021, most – if not all – major players in the sneaker space have diverted all of their attention to the new year.
Ahead of 2022, both NIKE, Inc. and adidas already directly or indirectly confirmed handfuls of Air Jordan release dates and Yeezy drops, with the latter including several Yeezy 350 v2 styles. Unsurprisingly, Michael Jordan’s signature sneaker line has continued to prep heritage-inspired and modern takes on the Air Jordan 1, though milestone anniversaries suggest models like the Air Jordan 7 will have a highly-visible 2022. Away from any Jumpman or trefoil logo, New Balance and A BATHING APE teased a number of collaborations likely to arrive in the first-half of the upcoming year. And while the full scope of each brand’s next 372 days has yet to pan out, promising propositions – including a New Balance 990v3 “Daytona” by Ronnie Fieg for Kith‘s 10th anniversary – have already hinted that 2022 will be one for the books.
Ahead of his first official game in the 2021-22 NBA season, Kyrie Irving also shared looks at a number of his basketball sneakers. Former teammate LeBron James also did the same, while one of Nike Basketball’s most beloved silhouettes ever – the Nike Air Max Penny 1 – surfaced in its original “Orlando” colorway via official images. Lastly, several Chinese New Year 2022 (Year of the Tiger) propositions emerged, with the Air Jordan 1 Low and Nike Dunk Low offering some of the collection’s most compelling pairs.
