8 New Sneakers We’re Keen to Cop This Month

Just because we’re in lockdown doesn’t mean you can’t show your feet some much-needed love.

If some industries have found themselves floundering amidst the global pandemic, the same can’t be said for designers in the sneaker world. Though the pandemic has no doubt been unkind to the fashion world, sneaker drops continue to come thick and fast. While it’s certainly good news for sneaker fiends around the world, simply keeping up with the latest drops can be a source of great anxiety and when you couple it with the fact most tend to sell out quicker than a TikTok dance trend goes viral, it sees you held captive to the whim of sneaker brands as you hover over the “refresh” button of the browser, awaiting that next update.

Thankfully, we’re here to help you out. In this week’s round-up of the best new sneakers launching in the coming weeks, there’s sure to be a sneaker to please everyone. Whether it’s the desire to hit the trails with speed or simply lounge around the house in footwear that’s comfortable and cushioning, we’ve got you covered. And sure, the thought of investing in a pair of kicks mid-lockdown might seem excessive, but let’s face it – at home, we’re getting more wear out of our casual ensembles than ever before. Time to treat your feet to something stylish then. For the Men’s Health pick of the sneaker crop, read on for the best new sneakers launching in the coming weeks.

Reebok Nano XI Adventure, $200

Gyms might be closed, but this new sneaker from Reebok proves that the gym is anywhere you make it. Designed for fitness indoors, outdoors or anywhere you want, the sneaker features a stretch ripstop and cushioned forefoot with Floatride Energy Foam. 


Adidas FORUM Exhibit Low, $160

With an updated take on a classic silhouette, these sneakers feature a rubber outsole and lace closure. Made with recycled content as part of the brand’s ambition to end plastic waste, now you can be stepping out in style knowing you’re doing good by the environment, too. 


GOLF le FLEUR x Converse Chuck 70 “Yellow Flames”, $195

When Tyler, the Creator puts his name to a sneaker design, we listen. This take on a classic silhouette is one you’ll want to get your hands on. 


Nike Gyakusou ZoomX Vaporfly Next, approx. $474

The ZoomX Vaporfly Next from Nike might be courting controversy on the track, but when it comes to running, these are some sneakers you need to get your feet into. With the heel height and cushioning, they deliver extreme propulsion and a comfortable ride. And given that most of us are now trading a gym for the streets, they’re worth the investment. 


Prada Nylon Quilted Mules, $965

Ok, so nothing quite says lockdown like a pair of mules, right? And if you’re going to wear mules, you might as well go all out and make it a pair of Prada mules. You might be breaking the bank for these ones, but given the state of 2021 and the occurrence of lockdown, they might just be the best investment you make this year. 


The Broken Arm x Salomon X-Desalpes, $238

Salomon is making a name for itself as an industry leader when it comes to sneakers that don’t just deliver on functionality, but also have style to boot. These shoes are a testament to just that, with a design that can take you from the trails to the streets in style. 


Nike Flow 2020 ISPA, $348

PUMA Wild Rider Rollin’ Sneaker, $160
