Spring is in full swing and as the NBA All-Star Game has finally been played, it really feels like we're that much closer to warmer summer months. Sneakerheads especially look forward to March because of the countless sneaker drops that Nike prepares for Air Max Day and this year we're in for an amazing treat. Additionally, collaborations are also in full swing as everyone tries to get your dollar for that post-pandemic fit pic.

Supreme x Nike Spring/Summer 2021 collection release info

Hot off their Nike SB Dunk Low release from last week, Supreme and Nike connect once again for a Spring/Summer 2021 collection that brings old school flavor back. A matching velour suit set with a jacquard logo pattern is a statement from the turn of the century while puffer jackets, hoodies, sweats, beanies, a faux snakeskin belt and neck warmer round out the selection. The pieces drop on March 11 in-store at Supreme locations in the US and Europe while Japan will release the merch on March 13.

Release Dates:
3/11/21 (Thursday) - NY, SF, LA, Paris, London

sacai Fall/Winter 2021 lookbook

Chitose Abe and sacai have shared their Fall/Winter 2021 collection and in addition to more Nike sneaker collaborations, the brand has also tapped Brooklyn-based artist KAWS for collaborative apparel, footwear and accessories. KAWS' world famous graphics not only include his "XX" eyes but also his colorful palette and sharp lines. The collection is meant to represent "wearable art" and the other pieces look extremely technical. Expect the Nike footwear collaboration to release in July and the rest of the collection to drop around the same time.

Release Date: 7/2021

UNIQLO +J Spring/Summer 2021 lookbook

The highly anticipated collection from designer Jil Sander and UNIQLO will arrive at the end of the month. Inspired by the cycle of renewal that is emerging from the darkness of winter into the light of spring, the range offers plenty of outerwear in adult sizing that ranges in price from $99-$199.90. You can cop the selection on March 25 from all UNIQLO stores as well as online via uniqlo.com.

Carpet Company x Nike SB Dunk High "Royal Pulse" release info 

Baltimore-based skate shop Carpet Company has been around since 2015 and now they're showing off their first collaborative Nike SB sneaker. Brothers Ayman and Osama Abdeldayem are proud to rep their Arabic roots with this sneaker as well as their unique design process. The semi-translucent blue layer is made from tearaway material and pays homage to screen printing while the yellow leather underneath is a nod to their heritage. These are available through SNKRS app on March 12 for $125 after selling out through the brand's website earlier.

Release Date: 3/12/21 (Friday)

Nike Kobe 6 Protro "All-Star" release info

Originally worn by Kobe in 2011's All-Star Game, played in LA and where he won MVP honors, the red snakeskin makes a return for the Protro version of the sneaker. Updated to be slightly more aggressive with large, flexible Air Zoom Turbo units, fans will be able to relive Mamba moments from a decade ago once again on March 15 for $180 thanks to SNKRS app.

Release Date: 3/15/21 (Monday)

Nike Air Max 90 "Bacon" release info

Originally launched back in 2004 as a collaboration with Dave's Quality Meat, the Nike Air Max 90 "Bacon" is a grail that collectors will once again have a chance to own. However, there won't be any DQM participation this time unfortunately. The story goes that the original inspiration for the shoe was drawn from the bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, which Dave Ortiz was eating at the time he had to rush to turn in the design. We're sad that this one won't have the same launch and feel of the original but it's an Air Max Day celebration pair that even Dave has been supporting. Hit up SNKRS app on March 26 to cop for $140.

Release Date: 3/26/21 (Friday)

adidas Originals YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 "Cream" release info

adidas Originals is bringing the beloved "Cream" colorway from the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 onto their 700 V2 silhouette - with a twist. Instead of covering the entire sneaker in white, they've also incorporated shades of grey as well as beige onto the panels and overlay. The white midsole hides the BOOST unit while a mix of suede Primeknit mesh on the upper is contrasted by the reflective material on the sides. Hit up adidas' Confirmed app and yeezysupply.com on March 13 to purchase for $240.
