New year, new shoedrobe? From Jumpman to Spiderman, here’s the most anticipated sneakers of 2023.
With 2023 in full swing, our favourite brands are gearing up to drop stacks of new sneakers, each as hyped as the next. From Travis Scott’s Jordan 1 Low OG Olive to the Off-Whit’s Air Force 1 Low Grey, the Sneaker God’s have blessed the New Year, and cursed our wallets. SNKRS, will you ever be on our side?
Travis Scott x Jordan 1 Low OG Olive
It was relatively quiet for La Flame in 2022. But his short-lived hiatus is set to end with the return of his well-loved Jordan 1 silhouette. Dubbed Scott’s best collaboration yet, the Low OG Olive features the same leather-on-suede construction as every sneakerhead’s favourite model – the Reverse Mocha. In monochromatic black and white, the namesake tone coats the backwards Swoosh and laces.

Jarritos x Nike SB Dunk Low
The SB Dunk Low has been the driving factor behind multiple unforgettable collaborations. And in 2023, we’re set for another! Teaming up with Jarritos, the sneaker could take Chunky Dunky’s food inspired crown. Made from a hemp-covered top with cut away elements, it features mandarin detailing across the lateral sides, alongside deep green branded Swooshes and soles.

Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low Grey
In Off-White’s ongoing partnership with Nike, Virgil Abloh’s legacy lives on. And part of a years long line up of upcoming releases, the Air Force 1 Low in Grey is evidence. Though rumoured to remain an exclusive to Paris, the smokey toned sneakers, with stitch on Swooshes and Off-White’s infamous ‘AIR’ branding, are bound to make a pricey appearance on the resellers market.

Jordan 1 High Spiderman; Across The Spiderverse
Everyone’s favourite Spiderman movie is set for a sequel in 2023, and a pair of Jordan 1’s to go with it. A nod to both Miles Morales and Michael Jordan, the Spiderman; Across The Spiderverse sneakers are inspired by the legendary Chicago colourway. Infused with interdimensional details in homage to the film, they feature patent leather panelling and sketch dot patterns across the ankle overlay. With great sneakers comes great responsibility, after all!

Though details have been so far limited, early photos show that the initial silhouette has been reimagined in a mocha and orange hue. If one thing’s for certain, it’s that this pair will sell fast.

Jordan 4 Thunder
Jordan 4’s Retro Thunder has been one of the most popular non-OG colourways of Jumpman’s loved silhouette since its original release in 2006. And now, in 2023, it’s making another comeback! Remastered in a similar style to the sneaker’s 1989 specs, it features dual-toned black and stark yellow contrasting hues. With mudguards and all, it’s a classic AJ4 with a striking twist.

Run The Jewels x Nike SB Dunk
Remember what we said about Dunk’s collaborations? To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of hip-hop duo Run The Jewels, Nike is set to release the pair’s first collaborative footwear collection. In a pink high top and blue low top iteration, both colourways are reminiscent of past album covers, while metallic gold deubrés and tape-inspired laces make an appearance too.
