No April Fools’ prank here — Jordan Brand started off the month in a big way with the return of the Air Jordan 1 “Royal.” When it comes to the 1985 Air Jordan model that started it all, this is one of the most desirable colorways among collectors, and it was welcomed with open arms for the first time since 2013.

Streetwear pioneer Supreme’s Nike Air More Uptempo collaboration had been on sneakerhead radars for months, and the brands finally delivered their three-style range on Thursday. With premium materials, reflective details, and the same bold, in-your-face branding that put the ’90s hoops sneaker on the map, this was a must-have for nostalgic fans and newcomers alike.

April also brought the year’s third Adidas Yeezy Boost release in a stark “Cream White” look. The Kanye West-designed style features a tonal knit upper with a semi-translucent sole and full-length Boost cushioning. Despite talks of higher production numbers and wider availability than previous Yeezys, these were just as difficult to come by.
