The Best Sneakers (Available Right Now) to Add to Your Spring Rotation

Juan Hernandez

Out with the old, in with the new. That’s what spring cleaning is all about right?

If you’re looking to freshen up your rotation just in time for Spring, you’ve come to the right place. Quick plug, make sure to download & use COLLECT by SoleSavy if you’re looking to offload some pairs to get some funds to buy new ones, like the ones listed below.

We spent hours looking through IG moodboards, TikTok trends, and hit the streets to see what the best sneakers you can get for retail are right now. (Disclaimer: literally none of that is true – we just googled some of the best recent drops)

As an added bonus, we took the extra step to give you some recommendations on a pair of socks that would match the best with each pair, courtesy of our friends at Strideline. Make sure to use code SOLESAVY25 for 25% off your order.

Now let’s get to the list.

Nike Air Max 1 ‘ Mica Green’

Nike has been pushing the Air Max 1 HARD this year, as we’ve seen many releases over the past couple of months. We were debating on adding the Big Bubble Air Max 1 here, but decided to go with a more neutral colorway.

The Air Max 1 ‘Mica Green’ is a perfect example of a slept-on, great sneaker that is available on many sites, like SNKRS direct. You add up the comfort, traditional colorblocking, and a clean, pastel green color, and you’ve got a pair that you’ll be wearing over and over again.

You’ll probably be wearing these either with shorts or a lounge pant as the weather turns nicer, so the Eco-Collection 4 pack socks are the perfect pair of socks to keep cool and show off the sneaker.

New Balance 990v6

The New Balance 99x series has been a fan favorite for a long time, but the recent energy that has been put into the line by collaborators and the MADE IN USA line has vaulted it into mainstream appeal.

The latest iteration of the 990 is the V6, and the classic ‘Grey’ colorway is where you should start if you’re looking to dive into the New Balance world, or just need a new pair of daily’s. Similar to the Air Max 1 above, the combo of comfort + style is unmatched. Get ’em direct from New Balance.

You can continue the all-grey tones with the Basic Mid Crew. It’s Grey Day everyday.


Salomon XT-6 ‘White/Lunar Rock’


We promise we were joking about scrolling through moodboards and TikToks earlier, but if you were to dive into to any of them, you’d probably see a Salomon XT-6 eventually. Truth is Salomon has been putting out  great sneakers for quite some time now and it’s much more than just a ‘niche’ sneaker at this point.

There are a bunch of great colorways in the XT-6 model but our favorite for the Spring has to be the ‘White/Lunar Rock’ You can pick up a pair for the streets or to go on the trails at retailers like Steadbrook.

The ‘Heather Grey’ Combed Cotton Crew socks would really compliment the ‘Lunar Rock’ hits.

New Balance 990v2 ‘Black/Tan’

Rounding off our list is another pair of New Balances, also in the 990x family.

This iteration is the 990v2 MADE IN USA in the ‘Black/Tan’ colorway. Teddy Santis has been in charge of running the MADE IN USA line for the last couple of years and we have seen plenty of great pairs readily available for anyone to scoop up.

This is a recent release that may not scream ‘Spring’ right off the jump, but it’s a versatile pair that lets you get some unique fits off now, and also once Fall hits. You can pick up a pair right now at retailers like KITH.

The ‘Caramel’ edition of the Combed Cotten Crew Sock is our preferred go-to for this pair.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
