Where to shop for newly released sneakers
Need to get your hands on the latest style from adidas Yeezy? Or maybe the new collection from Vans? Or... are you obsessing over the new Nike Air Force 1 colourway? For all the latest launches, you need to be shopping here. Check out which online retailers offer Afterpay, a wide range of brands and loads of convenient shipping options.
Of course, there are lots of other stores to buy sneakers from. You can check out our full list here. Happy shopping!
- If you want to be the first to get your hands on a pair of Air Jordan 34s or a new colourway of the Air Max 97s, sign up to the Nike newsletter to see the latest drops first.
- Don't feel like paying for shipping costs? No worries! Nike offers free delivery on orders over $200, which pretty much means all shoes will be shipped to your door for no charge.
- Thanks to Nike's Customise feature, you can create your very own pair of kicks in any colourway you can think of! Nobody on the street will be wearing the same statement sneakers as you...
- If you need a new pair of kicks but want to save on cash, rest assured. When you shop at adidas online, you can pay with Afterpay. Pay over four instalments, due every two weeks – wear now and pay later!
- adidas offers free delivery on all orders over $100. So, since most pairs are over that amount anyway, this means that whichever pair you choose, you don't have to pay for shipping.
- Need a pair of Yeezys? This is the official place to shop. If you want to get your hands on all the official launches, adidas should be your go-to place to check first.
3. JD Sports

- If you're short for cash but desperately need a new pair of Air Force 1s, check out JD Sports. You can shop now and pay later, thanks to Afterpay.
- Delivery options at Platypus are good. Score free shipping on orders over $130 or opt for same-day or next-day delivery! If you're living in Sydney and Melbourne metro areas, order before 2pm for same-day delivery and after 3pm for next-day. Flat rate is $14 and it's only valid Monday to Friday.
- Wear those statement sneakers now and pay later. That's right, you can pay with Afterpay.
