New kicks are always dropping and let's be real: Sometimes, it can be hard to keep tabs. Lucky for you, we've made a list of the best sneakers at the moment so you don't have to. Keep scrolling…

Adidas Originals Men's Retropy F2 Sneaker

Inspired by the 80s, the Adidias Originals Men’s Retropy F2 Sneaker features a new way of manufacturing shoes – it is made in part with recycled materials to reduce the environmental impact.

Via amazon.com

But if you think going eco-friendly would be uncomfortable, these pair of sneakers will make you think again. If you were planning to make a fashion statement this season – you’re making a comfortable choice with the Retropy F2 speakers.

Polo Ralph Lauren Men's Longwood Sneakers

Look chic in the office, at the outdoor party, or on the bowling alley with the Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s Longwood Sneakers. The luxurious leather design is accompanied by a lightweight and comfortable feel for your feet.

Via amazon.com

You won’t want to keep your feet out of these shoes, and you’ll want to get the other colors. We’ve found that few shoes find the right balance between professional and functional performance, but this pair checks the list.

KEEN Men's Eldon Comfortable Sneaker

The KEEN Men’s Eldon Comfortable Sneaker is the upcoming go-to sneakers that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe. Built for the outdoors, these pair of sneakers are yet to hear bad reviews from their users.

Via amazon.com

Quite simple and comfortable, you’ll like the simple style and design that are featured on them. We love the quality of KEEN products, and this is a definite favorite.

PUMA Men's Wild Rider Sneakers

PUMA has perfected a formula for creating athletic footwear that is outrageous when it comes to design and comfort. The PUMA Men's Wild Rider Sneakers position the brand once again as one of the world’s leading sportswear brands.

Via Amazon.com

Made with leather, we found that these are a style statement for when you go outdoors. Durability is a given with PUMA brands, so you know that these will last you a long time.

TRAVEL FOX Malibu Nappa

Wow! If there was a pair of shoes that looked extremely slick, we’d have to give the title to the TRAVEL FOX Malibu Nappa's. These high-top sneakers look so exquisite in their individual colors, you’ll definitely purchase more than one color.

The leather material is comforting and breathable, giving an air of authenticity to your feet. You’ll find it hard to get your hands on a pair because their stock is almost always cleared away once they hit the stores. Whether you want to go for a casual, fashionable, or youthful look, these sneakers are a great companion to aid your style.

Fila Men's F-13 Sneakers

Need a cool look for the summer adventures? The Fila Men’s F-13 Sneakers with sandy tan accents and cushioned footbed offer outward style and inward comfort to last many summers. Bringing back the look of the 80s footwear.

Fila Men's F-13 Sneakers
Via amazon.com

Fila has been a long-standing brand that offers a unique brand experience that combines athletic style with breathable style. Worth the price, the F-13s in particular are everyday sneakers that offer an easy entry into the world of cool people. We’re always happy with our purchases from Fila, and this time is no different.

Jordan Air 14 Retro Low

The first thing to hit your mind when you see these shows for the first time is – “Damn, where did the designer find its inspiration?” Edison Chen put in heart and soul into creating this design inspired by the Terracotta Army of the first emperor of China.

Jordan Air 14 Retro Low
Via amazon.com

The earthy textures and matte suedes look extremely sexy, with the ancient yet innovative touch. There are far too few shoes that can give off the aesthetics that these Jordans can. For us, the Jordan Air 14 Retro Low ticks more checkboxes than there are on the list, and we’re certain you feel the same.

Mazino Dynamite Chunky Sneakers

The Mazino Dynamite Chunky Sneakers look just like dynamite landed in the middle of all the colors in the world, and the resulting explosion creates a unique color combination that snaps up your attention in no time.

Designed for athleisure, we think it’s hard to find another pair of shoes that offer a similar versatility to your fashion statements. What this means is – these sneakers make you stand out from the crowd with a loud and bold footwear statement. Now, feel like a piece of art when you hit the streets with your Mazino Dynamite sneakers.

New Balance 997H Men's Sneaker

The New Balance 997H Men’s Sneakers is yet another feather on the cap of the brand because they seem to consistently put out sneakers that hit the right formulation between comfort, style, and price. The 997H is a new take on the classic 997 from new Balance, which was a design by fashion aficionado Steven Smith.

Via amazon.com

We think you’ll love the Cordura lining, which promises to take care of your feet while remaining durable.  These retro-styled sneakers are an absolute bang for your buck, and we think that there are few sneakers on this list that match the feeling New Balance offers.

Adidas Stan Smith Kermit the Frog X

Adidas’ collaboration with Stan Smith to use the Muppets franchise is a novel and welcome idea to bring back the show into pop culture. Featuring design details of Kermit the Frog, an impressive feature of these shoes is that they are made completely using recycled materials.

Via amazon.com

Meant to be used as tennis shoes, an unmistakable tribute to Kermit is paid using the lime green of the show, along with the muppet’s signature “It’s not easy being green” line stitched into the heel tabs. With the price point, we think that if you don’t recognize the deal right now, you’re missing out.

Adidas Niteball Sneakers Shoes

The Adidas Niteball Sneakers Shoes are always compared with the Yeezy, and if we had to pick one, we would tip towards the Niteball. These sneakers are quite similar to the Adidas Street Ball series, and these lifestyle sneakers should definitely be in your wardrobe if you’re a collector of sneakers.

Via amazon.com

While this design doesn’t seem to be marketed as much as the other collections, its popularity is solely through word of mouth, which happens to drive up the demand for these Adidas Originals. The color combinations are a blast, and you’re definitely going to stand out when you do these the next time you’re out hanging with friends.

BALLY Marell-FO-WS Sneaker Bone

The BALLY Marell-FO-WS Sneaker Bone is a style statement that doesn’t shout out with fancy colors but in a subtle, cool guy kind of manner. The only thing we found flashy about this pair is the goldtone metal logo details and the brand’s signature stripe, but they are definitely a good kind of flashy.

Via amazon.com

Made mostly of leather, these shoes are meant to look good, but aren’t as durable as you may think. But if there’s a pair of sneakers that can treat your feet right, it would be these.

Nike Men's Air Max 97 QS Leather Trainers

Owning a Nike is more than just owning a shoe, it has become synonymous with opening the doors to greatness. The Nike Men's Air Max 97 QS Leather Trainers, with the gold finish, allow you to be excel by becoming the excellent tools your feet need.

Via amazon.com

By incorporating Tuned Air technology, this shoe feels just as good as it looks, and provides superb underfoot support and cushioning, allowing you to go faster and longer on your runs without compromising on foot integrity. If there was a sure-shot formula to offering the best for your running habit, Nike presents the final result in this product.

Air Jordan 4 Retro

The Air Jordan 4 Retro is a blast from the past, paying homage to a time of aesthetic quality meets long-term comfort. These shoes look so good, it will not be surprising if you break down and cry. Whether you’re on the court, hanging out with your friends, or just hitting the streets, this pair can match any occasion.

Via amazon.com

The color schemes match the colors of the Chicago Bulls. If you’re a collector of shoes, we think this pair from Air Jordan could be a worthy addition to your collector’s wardrobe.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2

If there’s one aspirational brand to look up to, it is the brand of Kanye West.  The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is his redesign of the popular 350 models. Blending neutral-toned colorways with the signature “Zyon” colorway at the heel, this pair has a subtle marbled blend of colors, famously patented as the Primeknit upper.

Via amazon.com

The purpose of this subtle combination of colorways is to have the shoe match any occasion or outfit. The boost cushioning further adds to the comfort of wearing, and we think you will not regret getting this pair for your feet.

Air Force 1 Low Roswell Raygun 

Bringing back a design from the featured 2005 Nike SB Dunk, the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Roswell Raygun’ is the modern reinvention of the series. The Roswell Rayguns were a fictional ABA team featured in their 2002 Nike Basketball campaign, and their signature colors are prominently used in this pair of shoes.

Via amazon.com

The colors give off a vibe of luxury, and the shoes really make a statement in the crowd. We especially liked the embroidered basketball graphic located at the lateral heel, which subtly reminds us of the famous Basketball campaign. Gift this to someone in your family, and you’re on your way to becoming their favorite family member.

Air Jordan 1 "Pollen"

Featuring a classic black and yellow color combo, this Air Jordan 1 "Pollen" not only nods to allergy season but to an iconic Dunk High collab with Wu-Tang Clan from 1999. During the rollout of his McDonald's meal, Travis Scott popped up wearing one of the 36 ever produced. They were originally shared with family and friends connected to the iconic Staten Island rap group.

via Stadium Goods

While the "Pollen" incorporates similar colors as the Wu-Tang dunk, the latest silhouette is a Jordan Brand favorite: the retro Air Jordan 1. Having dropped in August for $170 retail via Nike's SNKRS app, these shoes are now reselling on StockX and other sites for around $200.

Travis Scott x fragment design x Air Jordan 1 Low

After dropping the high-top version at the end of July on his Cactus Jack website in a first-come, first-served manner, Travis Scott and the Japan-based shop fragment design gave sneaker collectors a better chance to secure their coveted Air Jordan 1 Low style with a raffle on SNKRS in August.

via repgod888 on Instagram

Even though they're Lows, which usually aren't as popular as Jordan 1 Highs, only a handful of SNKRS bidders were able to get their hands on a pair, turning the moment into a trending topic on Twitter. They're reselling for $1,200 on sites like StockX; the Highs are selling for more than double that price.

JJJJound x Vans Sk8-Mid

The low-key yet influential Montreal imprint JJJJound is linking with Vans for the second time since 2017 to deliver 3 suede colorways of the Sk8-Mid in black, brown and olive green. Previously, JJJJound ventured beyond sneakers into a more business casual realm with Dr. Martens.

via jjjjound on Instagram

(The Archie II "Dark Brown Crazy Horse" and "Black Wyoming" shoes were meant for both modern and traditional creatives.) Reflecting JJJJound's versatile and minimal style, the new Vans kicks quickly sold out. However, they're listed on StockX and other sites for the relatively fair cost of $100-130.

Kerwin Frost x Adidas Superstar "Superstuffed"

Fashion tastemaker and Adidas partner Kerwin Frost is translating his larger-than-life personality into an oversized Adidas Superstar "Superstuffed," reselling for around $350 on StockX and other markets. His debut Adidas collab is stuffed with so much padding, it looks five sizes bigger than its actual fit.

via Adidas

"Yes, this is for the weirdo, but I also want everyday people to just be able to put it on and feel a little sneaky when they’re jumping into it," Frost told Complex in an interview. "Because it’s not super loud in colors and stuff, but it is really crazy and out of the box." Gigi Hadid and John Mayer are two notable trendsetters who showed love to the "Superstuffed."

Concepts x New Balance 57/40 "Headin' Home"

Concepts x NB 57/40 "Headin' Home" – For a style that's more normal-sized, peep the 57/40 "Headin' Home" from Boston-based boutique Concepts and New Balance. The shoe not only pays homage to Babe Ruth's 1920 film of the same name but the rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees. (Ruth won three championships with the Sox and four with the Yanks from 1915-1932.)

via Concepts

"While athlete-driven film features are common today, this was pioneering for its time: The Yankees' first attempt at selling its stars through popular entertainment," Concepts wrote on its blog. They added, "The color palette for the shoe draws from original 'Headin' Home' posters." On resale markets like StockX, they've been moving for close to $200.

Stüssy x Birkenstock Boston Clogs (2021)

After joining forces for a couple of Boston Clogs outfitted in corduroy last year, Stüssy and Birkenstock are expanding their collection to include 3 fresh colorways – "Bone," "Caramel" and "Dusty Pink" – in traditional suede. The main highlight is Stüssy's logo, which lies parallel to the buckle. Birkenstock describes the sandal as a "perfect seasonless shoe."

via Stüssy

Birkenstock also collaborated with streetwear brand Kith earlier this year on a couple of fuzzy Boston Shearling looks in "Antler" and "Grey," as well as two Arizona Shearling pairs in "Navy" and "Green." The latest releases are reselling for between $230-$300, with "Dusty Pink" being the most sought-after.

Pharrell x Adidas Humanrace Sičhona

Pharrell and Adidas are continuing to make sneaker history together, recently introducing a brand new silhouette dubbed the Humanrace Sičhona in "Team Royal Blue." Sičhona is an indigenous phrase that means "connecting to the earth." Members from the Dakota tribe were featured in the promotional campaign, and they liken the phrase to being "barefoot.”

via Adidas

Indeed, Pharrell revealed in an interview, "I chased the experience I remember feeling as a kid when I walked barefoot on grass, sand and rocks. Feeling the texture, the temperature, the moisture … that primal sense of freedom was a north star objective with this project." They dropped via Adidas' Confirmed app in late August, now going for around $230.

Asics x Vivienne Westwood Gel-Kayano 27 LTX 

Take a good look at those kicks below. Look familiar? There's a reason for that: Vivian Westwood's latest collab with Asics was actually inspired by the label's famous latex stockings. And with a sleek finish and futuristic silhouette, we'd say the sneakers are certainly worthy of a spot in your closet. But hang on while we break down what exactly is so great about 'em.

A rocky nature trail? A runway? Take your pick. Pop on over to the official site, pick your style (Vapor, Citrus, and Black colorways), and get ready to strut in style.

Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low "Stars"

When Supreme and Nike SB joined forces yet again back in March, you can bet it took the sneaker world by storm. After dropping the Dunk Low "Stars," it wasn't long before the retro kicks sold out on their official sites. Lucky for you, we've found you another way to cop the special collab in the link above. As for why you'll want to add them to your collection?

From the moment you step foot in the striking sneakers, you'll be feeling like the star that you are - literally. Decked out in a star pattern and faux croc skin, the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Lows pay nod to the rare 2003 Nike SB Dunk High Supremes (remember those?). Only this time around, you'll be scoring 4 new styles: Hyper Royal, Mean Green, Black, and Barkroot Brown. And suddenly your future never looked brighter...

Air Jordan 5 Toro Bravo

MJ has been dominating the court for as long as we can remember. But forget his stats for a second. The NBA legend's sneaker choices have also changed the world of ball forever. After first stepping out in the Air Jordan 1 back in the '80s, Jordan's kicks have continued to sell out ever since. But it appears an upgrade is officially in order.

Take a look at the revamped Air Jordan 5 "Toro Bravo" that hit shelves on April 10th. The latest silhouette will introduce a noticeably tweaked design to the cult-favorite style.

With stitched graphics and heritage branding, the familiar Air Jordan detailing will still be upheld. Make sure to head on over to Nike to be a part of history.

Air Jordan 1 Centre Court

Good news: The low-cut, court-inspired take on the Air Jordan 1 has finally hit shelves. The kicks' revolutionary design merges the world of vintage Michael Jordan with a modern aesthetic. According to Nike's website, the silhouette actually "fuses" the two worlds with a flavor "popularized by classic tennis shoes" to "capture the best of both worlds."

Available in University Red and White on White, the shoes seem to be living up to their promise, sporting stitched graphics featuring crescent patterns.

For all of our Converse lovers, we've got a feeling you're going to like this next design. One look at the Kim Jones x Converse collab and it's like we've just stepped back into the '90s.

Looking for style and comfort? Look no further than New Balance's latest drop, the 57/40. It may look familiar, as the sneakers are a revamp of the brand's iconic 574s.

The famous New Balance logo is also bigger on these sneakers, reminiscent of past releases such as the 327.

With the 57/40, New Balance has blessed us with a taste of both the '80s and '90s. For one, you'll find two midsoles on the kicks. One was inspired by style in the '90s and the other was a traditional 574 look. NB's latest collection also comes with rainbow-colored details on a neutral canvas. But there are even more colorways set to hit the shelves in the future, making for the most expressive model across the 574 collections.
