Keeping an eye on all the latest sneaker news can be hard. Different pairs of kicks are launching almost every day, whether it be a new style from adidas Yeezy or a new Air Force 1 colourway. Well good news, ladies and gents, you're in luck! Here at Finder, we've done the research to give you all of the upcoming sneaker launch dates that we could find.
And if you're wondering where to shop for your favourite sneakers, we recommend checking the brand's website first. This will be the best option if you want to be the first to own a particular pair of shoes. If you can wait, we also love to shop at online retailers like JD Sports, THE ICONIC and Platypus Shoes.
Upcoming sneaker release dates
Keep in mind that many of these sneaker releases happen in the US first, meaning that some dates won't necessarily be the same for Australia. That's why we've made a note of whether the date is for AU or US. Typically, we see new styles appear in Australian stores about a week or two after the US, although this can vary.
