The Best Sneakers That Came Out This Month You Can Actually Buy

Too many sneakers come out every month to keep up with, and most are so limited you don’t have much of a shot at getting them.

The sneaker release calendar is hilariously overwrought — with all the new colorways, slight redesigns, mini-collabs and hyper-limited releases, its become virtually impossible to keep up. These sneakers are our favorites of the month that you can actually get.


Converse Chuck 70 Trek Tech High Top

Released late in the month, the Trek Techs are the nth reimagining of one of America’s most iconic sneakers. The upper is a durable canvas, high rubber siding, a cushiony OrthoLite insole and the color-reversed Converse stamp on the ankle. The “hiking” laces give it a more outdoorsy look, but these are still better worn foot-to-pavement (check out our guide on foot-to-dirt shoes here). Gray, dark red, a nice mustard yellow and black are available as of launch.

Saucony Grid SD “Garden District” Pack

Here’s to something that’s not Nike or Adidas. The Garden District pack of Saucony’s flagship Grid SD line is a two shoe ode to New Orleans, complete with the fleur de lis on each heel. The pack, which comes in purple or gray, released at the beginning of the month, and is available exclusively through SneakerPolitics.

Adidas PureBoost Go

Though you probably shouldn’t run in these, they may be okay for shorter jogs. Either way — the new PureBoost Go is super-comfy at the very least, a Boost sole, snug knitted upper and light overall weight make sure of that. Thanks to simple colorways and unaggressive contrast, they fold into most everyday outfits rather easily.

Calvin Klein Warhol Portrait Canvas Sneakers

The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, in collaboration with CK Jeans, released canvas sneakers with Warhol’s face printed on them. They are simple (we’ll call them Chuck Taylor-adjacent) but interesting, and you probably won’t see them on every other street corner like you will other hyped sneakers (some on this list included). The stills adorning the shoes — white with an orange print, white with a light blue print, black with a purple print and black with yellow print — are taken from Warhol’s 1963 film Kiss.

Adidas ZX 500 RM

Weird Adidas marketing strikes again, as the ZX 500 RMs, obviously a lifestyle shoe, are put forth as runners. They’re not, but as we said at launch earlier this month, they’re perfect for just about everything that’s not running or exercise. The look blends features from the casual and lightweight I-5923s and the techier EQTs and winds up with a clean, low-key sneaker.

Nike Epic React Flyknit (True White)

At a rate of approximately 1,000 per week, new colorways aren’t typically something to get overexcited about. And while the new True White colorway of Nike’s Epic React sneaker doesn’t set itself apart that much, it’s still a gorgeous, clean and slightly eclectic update to a line that was starting to feel stale. The bright red React sole and lightning yellow accent make sure of that.

Air Jordan I Hyper Royal

This silhouette needs no introduction. It could be argued AJ1s were the genesis of sneaker culture, and these are just the latest in a long line of excellence. Though the origin story of Michael Jordan taking the court in an illegal pair of sneakers (and, as the story goes, Nike paying the fines) is likely untrue, the legend still grows. This rendition, smothered in royal blue, sports a full-grain leather construction and the winged stamp of His Airness.
