The first few months of 2015 were a whirlwind of sneaker releases. Between the start of the Jordan Brand‘s scheduled “remastered” lineup for this year to big events like NBA All-Star Weekend — which set some type of unofficial record for how many shoes dropped — to even the unbelievably hyped release of the adidas Yeezy Boost from Kanye West, 2015 couldn’t have started any more grand.

So, that begs the question: Where do we go from here?

Well, lucky for us, Nike isn’t done, kicking off this month with a sick collection of “Easter” colorways for their four major stars, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant. Then you have Jordan Brand dropping an old school colorway for the classic Air Jordan V. Metallic Silver never looked so hot. It’s also dropping at the perfect time. I’ll always be partial to black sneakers. I think they simply look better. But, especially in the winter, it’s almost impossible to rock all-white kicks and get away with it. Too much mud, snow, dirt, ice…you get the idea. However, rocking white kicks with shorts? Always looks better. Always. And we have both of our feet in spring now, so I can’t be the only one who’s starting to retire some of my pants as the temperature gets into the 60s and 70s.

Step your swagger up this month. Be ready for when the weather starts having you turn to shorts and T-shirts. You’ll feel better being prepared. These are April’s Sneaker Release Dates That You Can’t Miss. Thanks us later.
