Sneakerheads are bombarded with news of upcoming releases on a daily basis. To save you some time from searching each and every site and leak account, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to sift through the onslaught and bring you a few noteworthy kicks that have captured our attention.
Today, we’ve learned that Nike is continuing to bolster its roster of golf shoes, as the Air Jordan 4 Golf has surfaced in the iconic “White Cement” colorway. This one is considerably similar to the original pair, albeit outfitted with spikes so you can grip it and rip it down the fairway.
In other sneaker news, James Harden‘s new adidas shoe, the Harden Vol. 5, is officially here, with two additional colorways coming soon. And if you’re a sucker for collaborations, we’ve come across a special one between diversity and inclusion agency Incorp[HER]ated and Diadora, as well as an iconic makeover from Dover Street Market and Converse.
Release Date: TBC

Editor’s Notes: The “White Cement” Air Jordan 4 was initially expected to return in 2021, but following early reports, we’ve learned a similar colorway will arrive this year in its place. Still, fans of the iconic Jordans can look forward to a “White Cement” release in 2021, albeit in the form of the Air Jordan 4 Golf. The golf-specific J’s feature a near identical upper in comparison to the OG “White Cement” Air Jordan 4. The lone difference on the shoe emerges in the form of branding, as the red Jumpman logo on the tongue is set against a white backdrop, and the heel is adorned with the Jumpman instead of the customary Nike Air hit. Nike has yet to announce release information for the “White Cement” Air Jordan 4 Golf, so you’ll want to stay tuned for launch details.
Release Date: February 2021
Where to Buy: adidas.com
Editor’s Notes: James Harden’s latest signature shoe with adidas is here. Available beginning today is the “Magnolia” colorway of the Harden Vol. 5, as two additional iterations will release later on in February. The Harden Vol. 5 debuts adidas’ all-new Futurenatural innovation, featuring the best of the brand’s midsole technologies. BOOST is paired with LIGHTSTRIKE to offer enhanced cushioning and unrivaled responsiveness. Each of the Harden Vol. 5 colorways are inspired by James’ appreciation for bold and expressive patterns, colors, and designs. While the “Magnolia” is available now, the “Solar Red” and “Icy Pink” variants will arrive on February 15, each for $130.

Where to Buy: The Greenhouse app
Editor’s Notes: Diadora has teamed up with diversity and inclusion agency Incorp[HER]ated for a noteworthy collaboration targeting discrimination. The Duratech Elite, dubbed “LIMITLESS,” was in turn designed by middle school and high school students from the organization’s 2019 Straight to Feet workshop. The eye-catching shoe finds touches of bold pink and blue coming together across the upper to represent the breaking down of gender stereotypes. The sneaker’s holographic logo then points to inclusivity, while “LIMITLESS” is embossed on the side panel as a reminder that judgements and prejudices do not determine success.

Where to Buy: Dover Street Market
Editor’s Notes: For its latest collaboration, Dover Street Market has joined with Converse to reimagine the iconic Jack Purcell. Here, we find the low-top sneaker offered in two colorways of “Parchment” and “Black,” each featuring a canvas upper and the silhouette’s signature rubber toe box. What makes the collab stand out is the DSM hut logo, which appears on the heel counter and sockliner.
