With summer officially about a month away, a handful of the world’s most influential sneaker brands have teased new product for the warmest months of the year and beyond.

NIKE, Inc. and Travis Scott dominated social media feeds as product imagery of their once-postponed Nike Air Trainer 1 duo emerged. Raffles also opened on the Houston-native’s online webstore ahead of the rumored Nike SNKRS drop on May 27th. Some footwear consumers have likely written off La Flame forever following the tragedy that was Astroworld Festival 2021, but Scott still moves product unlike most other figures in the sportswear space. In addition to the collaborative Air Trainer 1 pairs, the Oregon-based company was tied to unofficial looks at the Air Jordan 2 by J Balvin, the Air Force 1 Low by Billie Eilish and Nike Cortez 4.0 by sacai.

Away from any swoosh or Jumpman logo, netizens were treated to a number of upcoming sneakers releases from Reebok and New Balance. The former, which is also headquartered in Massachusetts, has been enjoying newfound attention by outfitting some of its classic tennis and basketball silhouettes in refreshing ensembles, while the latter continues to dominate footwear conversations by allowing creatives the likes of Teddy Santis of Aimé Leon Dore fame to take over the reins.

For a look at all that and more, including Nike Dunks and Air Jordans, check out our top headlines from May 14th to May 20th ahead.
