There’s just something about spring. The season of renewal, it’s a chance to add a touch of colour to your wardrobe before the high-voltage hues of summer come along. Floral tones offer a much-needed dose of dopamine, while bright whites promise to clean up your collection and deliver a simple-but-effective style that’ll see you all the way through to next season.
As you prepare to put away your jumpers and thermals, replacing them with shorts and tees, we’ve rounded up the best spring 2022 releases that deserve a spot in your new-season collection. From the latest Nike Dunks to the most in-demand New Balance 550s, refresh your rotation now, ready for the warmer weather ahead.
New Balance 550 White/Grey
The must-have silhouette of the season, the New Balance 550 went from forgotten ‘80s relic to internet sensation thanks to the keen design eye of Aimé Leon Dore’s Teddy Santis. Versatile and functional, the sneaker’s best-selling white and grey iteration is perfect for the season ahead. Crafted from supple leather, perforated panels ensure breathability, while lightweight cushioning underfoot supports your every step.
Nike Dunk Low Move To Zero Pale Coral
Initially landing in 2021, the Nike Dunk Low Move To Zero Pale Coral is dressed in a spring-ready pastel pink colourway. Part of Nike’s ongoing Move To Zero initiative that aims to reduce the brand’s carbon footprint and deliver shoes that are more environmentally friendly, this pretty pink Dunk is made from faux leather, but still boasts the same level of durability and flexibility as its genuine-leather counterparts.
Air Jordan 1 High OG Retro High Royal
Match your sneakers to the sunny spring skies with the Air Jordan 1 High OG Retro High Royal. Sure to be one of the most premium pairs in your Jordan collection, the upper on this iteration is crafted from smooth leather. Rich blue and black work in tandem with crisp white to keep the look clean, while Swoosh and Jordan branding deliver that final touch of finesse.
sacai x Nike VaporWaffle White Sail
The latest offering from the sacai x Nike partnership, the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle White Sail boasts all the detailing you’d expect from a sacai kick. The midsole extends out into a double shelf design, while double layers can also be found on the tongue, heel and lace-up fastening. A modern take on Nike’s Waffle One, the white and sail colourway promises to pair with everything in your Nike collection.
