    Release Date: March 5

    Kyrie’s time at Duke was fleeting but memorable. In just 11 games, Irving cemented his place as one of college basketball’s best players and wrapped up a spot atop the NBA Draft leaderboard. It only made sense to honor the Duke pedigree once Nike hooked him up with a shoe, and this “Brotherhood” release (Eds. note: now officially the “Alma Mater”) is the second drop in what figures to be a yearly storyline the rest of the way for Irving.

    Air Jordan Retro 5 Low "Fire Red"

    Release Date: March 12

    JB continues to drop the V as a low-top silhouette. This colorway–one of the best you’ll ever see on the original V–gets the low treatment for the first time ever. Don’t sleep; the V as a low-top definitely takes some getting used to but it’s an interesting look on a famed silhouette.

    Nike Kobe 11 "Bruce Lee"

    Release Date: March 19

    This vibrant Electric Yellow color was last seen on the Kobe 9 two years ago. Before that, it was around for the Kobe V. It’s not subtle, but if you’re looking for something to show out in, it’ll be hard to grab anything this month that’s any louder.

    Nike KD 8 "Easter"

    Release Date: March 25

    The KD 8 has been somewhat overlooked this year, just as Kevin Durant has. It’s only a matter of time before both the shoe and the player blow up again.

It’s that time of the month again–where we outline important March sneaker release dates.

Whereas February is an important month for sneakerheads simply because there are new releases dropping seemingly at will–especially with the presence of NBA All-Star Weekend–March is something else entirely. Perhaps the sporting world’s most important event this month is the NCAA Tournament. While it might make for great water cooler discussion across the country’s offices and school rooms, it’s typically not a seminal sneaker moment.

March’s importance comes from the weather.

With spring slowly working its way into the fold this month for much of the country, a lot of us change up our sneaker rotation. Low-tops come back into the fold. White sneakers make their entrance. (Forget the Memorial Day rule.) And though I wear them all year, a lot of people retire their boots until the following fall.

This March, we’re getting more sneakers than normal for this month. Jordan Brand is hitting with multiple retro releases, including the iconic “French Blue” Air Jordan XII, one of the sneaker’s best colorways ever. Nike is dropping multiple colorways for all four of their big dogs–Kobe and the Kobe 11; LeBron and the LeBron 13; Kevin Durant and the KD 8; and even the Kyrie 2 for Kyrie Irving. Under Armour is also dropping the “Surprise Party” Curry Two, a continuation of a storyline we saw with Stephen Curry last year.

Finally, there’s a lot of heat coming from adidas, most of it centering around the new silhouette, the adidas NMD. The lifestyle shoe is dropping in multiple different colorways.

From a great collection of signature sneakers for Easter to the launch of a bunch of different colorways for the adidas NMD, March is going to be amazing. These are 11 March Sneaker Releases Date You Can’t Miss.
