At a time where every penny counts, sneaker giants like Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Asics etc are making it very tough to resist the temptation to spend. From iconic retros to hype collaborations, join us as we delve into the most anticipated sneaker releases of 2024.
Action Bronson x New Balance 1906R
Expected to release around April/May 2024, Action Bronson has 3 upcoming colourways of the New Balance 1906R. “Medusa Azul” (blue), “Scorpius” (orange/yellow), and “Rosewater” (white/pink). For New Balance enthusiasts and fans of the rapper, these pairs will be a special addition to the collection. According to Action Bronson himself, the “Scorpius” pair will be the most limited.

Air Jordan 4 ‘Bred Reimagined‘
Nike have given the iconic Jordan 4 “Bred” a leather makeover and Sneakerheads across the globe are going crazy about it! Fans of the OG colourway have mixed feelings about this release. Some say the pair are exactly what they have been waiting for, as the black nubuck on the OG pair is a magnet for dust. Whereas others feel the Bred 4 didn’t need a ‘reimagined’ take. Whether you’re a fan or not, this pair are one of the most talked about upcoming releases for 2024 so far. Expected release date is 17th February 2024. You can check out an exclusive in hand and on foot preview from Seth Fowler in the YouTube video below.
Air Jordan 4 ‘Military/Industrial Blue’
35 years after it’s initial release in 1989, the Jordan 4 “Military Blue” makes a comeback for 2024. This is a very special release for the Jordanheads, as the iconic colourway returns with the OG “Nike Air” branding on the heel tab. Making this retro the closest we’ve ever got to the OG release. This pair are expected to drop on 27th April 2024. However, recent images have emerged (as seen above) of the pair which show the blue as slightly darker than the OG “Military”, (reminding us of the “Motorsport” 4s) and rumours are that Nike have changed the name to “Industrial Blue”. Guess we will just need to wait and see when they release. Either way, it’s a massive cop for us. Image: @sneakerjamz
Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘Elkins’/’Canary’
Named and designed after the High School Travis Scott graduated from, the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘Elkins’/’Canary” are dividing fans across the scene. The bold colours are certainly different from the rappers usual earth tones, but we like the combination. In fact, it reminds us a lot of the ‘Laney’ Jordan colourways. Which, were also inspired by the High School Michael Jordan attended, where he was famously placed on the junior varsity team during his sophomore year. There are no official dates for this release yet, but we do know it will be sometime in the Summer of 2024. Image: @sneakerknockerzllc
Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low
Known for one of the rarest Nike SB Dunk collabs ever (the “D.U.N.K.L.E”), graffiti artist Futura has teamed up with Nike again this year. The collab will focus on the Nike SB sillhouete and features the artists iconic colourful spray paint design. Set to release sometime in Summer 2024, we already know this release is going to be a problem! Image: @jfgrails. Check out the ‘Early Bird Boys’ detailed in hand look below:
Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘Black Olive’
The Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘Black Olive’ features a similar colourway to the womens ‘Olive’ release from 2023. However, this combination seems to be a lot more popular with fans. Travis is showing no sign of slowing down this year! This pair are expected to drop sometime in Fall 2024. Image: @jfgrails
Air Jordan 5 “Olive”
It’s finally time for the Jordan 5 to get the recognition it deserves! Originally released in 2006, the Air Jordan 5 “Olive” is returning for the very first time. An exciting moment for lovers of this silhouette. The retro is expected to be as close to the OG as possible. As confirmed by Jordan Brand themselves on Nike SNKRS Live, the release date for this iconic pair is sometime in March 2024.
Stash x Nike Air Max 95 ‘Black’
In 2006, graffiti artist Stash teamed up with Nike for the Stash x Nike Air Max 95 ‘Black’, as part of the ‘Artist Series’. The pair sold out within seconds and are arguably one of the best Air Max 95s of all time. Fans of the 95 silhouette who missed out back then, finally have their chance to cop this incredible pair. Don’t get us wrong, we expect this release to be extremely limited and popular, so make sure you stay up to date with the latest sneaker news to make sure you’re ahead of the game. You don’t want to miss out on this special drop. We will let you all know when we hear anything!
J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 “Rio”
Following on from the huge success of the J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 ‘Medellín Sunset’ last year, Balvin is back with yet another Jordan 3 collab. This time featuring a black upper, with colourful sunset inspired accents on the midsole and heel, topped off with the classic Jordan 3 elephant print mudguards. There is little information surrounding a release date for the J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 ‘Rio’. However, we believe, like all the other pairs, these will be very popular! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok and Pinterest to stay up to date with the latest sneaker release dates as they are revealed. Image: overtimekicks
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Low “Home & Away”
As seen on the final episode of Full Size Run on Complex, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Low looks absolutely incredible! The anticipated release date is 15th February 2024. However, based on the previous Trophy Room collaborations and back dooring rumours, we wouldn’t hold our breath on copping this pair. Image: Sérgio Santos/Complex
Air Jordan 11 ‘Columbia’
It’s not December without a Jordan 11 drop, and this year we are in for a treat! Originally released in 1996, then retro’d in 2001 and 2014, the Air Jordan 11 “Columbia” is returning in 2024. Although we are only in January, according to @zsneakerheads the pair has a release date of 14th December, and will be available in full family sizing. We can’t wait!
