Top luxury designer sneakers trending now for Spring Summer 2022

1. Louis Vuitton and Nike Air Force 1 by Virgil Abloh

These are the last pair of sneakers Virgil Abloh designed as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton before his untimely death late last year. Created for the Spring-Summer 2022 Men’s Collection,  they are entirely made in precious calf leather and embellished with Louis Vuitton’s emblematic Monogram and Damier patterns with natural cowhide piping. 200 pairs were were up for auction at Sotheby’s in January with a starting bid of $2,000. Proceeds of the auction were donated to The Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund, according to his wishes.

2. Air Jordan 1 “Chicago Reimagined”

Rumors have it that the new Air Jordans will be expected to release around the holidays later this year. This time, they’re going back to the original silhouette – even giving it an aged, vintage look as if it might have been stored in a box from 1985. It’s expected to have the iconic White/Varsity Red/Black colorway, of course.

3. New Balance x JJJJound 990v3

New Balance’s profile just keeps rising (and not just with suburban dads). The Montreal-based design studio’s latest New Balance collaboration immediately sold out and we can see why. The tonal olive color way is a bit punchier than the classic grey but can still be considered a neutral. The v3s introduced a breathable, mesh upper and a more spacious overlay design while the cushioning established a streamlined, modern look.

4. Concepts x Nike Air Max 1

For the 35th anniversary of Air Max 1, this collab between delves into the world of the ‘60s and ‘70s music festival scene with three unique maximalist colorways. Released in March, “Heavy,” “Mellow,” and “Far Out” are meant to take you straight to the corner of Haight and Ashbury or the field at Woodstock.

5. Drake x NOCTA x Nike Hot Step Air Terra

This is Drake’s first official signature sneaker with Nike. It dropped in March with a clean look of perforated white tumbled leather. In addition to Air Max cushioning, G-TEK is also present in the sole, a technology found in the 1999 ACG Air Terra Humara. If you’re wondering what NOCTA is…it’s the newfound sub-label that nods to Drake’s nocturnal creative process.

6. Nike Dunk Low

The Dunk is a true icon for its nostalgic and clean silhouette and the ‘Black White’ epitomizes that classic two-tone look. They regularly sell for 375% more than their average retail price. Some say the modern sneaker hype can be traced back to this very style. It’s even caused a legit riot back in 2005.

7. New Balance 2002 Protection Pack

Releasing soon for the Spring/Summer 2022 season is New Balance’s latest “Protection Pack” model. It’s a deconstructed aesthetic with unfinished and smudged overlays that belies its premium leather and suede fabrication. For reference, the 2021 model has increased threefold on StockX. Not bad for a dad shoe!

8. Salomon ACS Pro Advanced

We saved Jason’s favorite shoe of the season for last. With new creative director, Bryan Diaz, at the helm of this heritage skiwear brand, this sneaker has been a huge success. Pulled from the archives and retooled with a stride-stabilizing Agile Chassis System (ACS), it’s equal parts trail and tech.
