Looking to buy some new trainers, or just want some incredible sneakers to look at? You’re in the right place!

These are the best men’s trainers right now! From the top brands such as Nike and Adidas, these brand new releases are what you want to be wearing in 2021.

This list will be constantly updated with the latest and greatest must have trainers. You’ll find the coolest sneakers and sneaker drops for the most head turning designs.

With that said, these are the trainers which have caught my eye in April 2021.

At the back end of March we saw something special which I have to include in this month’s update, as the story is still rolling. Check out the coolest trainers right below.

The Best Men’s Trainers: April 2021

Supreme x Nike Air Max 96 Black

Air Max 96 x Supreme

Supreme have teamed up with Nike with these Air Max 96 black.

As the name suggests, they’re black in colour, with a complimenting red colour in the detailing. The sides have a see through pod design, kind of similar to the air soles, so you’ll have to make sure you’re wearing nice socks with them!

There’s Supreme branding on the tongue and in the insole, with a red Nike swoosh and Supreme wording on there too.

Air Max 97 Silver Purple Bullet

Air Max 97 Silver Bullet Purple

The iconic Air Max 97 silhouette has modified it’s traditional silver bullet colourway to this purple design. Instead of the red and silver combo, it’s been refreshed with a purple colour. The Air sole comes in purple, with the Nike Swoosh on the side of the upper also sporting purple.

Kermit The Frog x Adidas Stan Smith Trainers

Adidas Stan Smith Kermit The Frog Trainers

For this month you can get some Kermit action on your Adidas Stan Smiths.

The classic and sleek all white trainers come with a lime green detailing in the design in contrast to the original deeper green. This comes along with the wording KERMIT on the midsole, and an outline graphic of Kermit himself.

These are available now and will set you back £90.

Nike Air Max 96 II

Nike Air Max 96 II Trainers Back April 2021

The return of a favourite is coming, The Nike Air Max 96 II is back in April.

Coming in 2 colourways for men and women, ATMOS Tokyo teased these two silhouettes which bring back some good 90’s memories.

I like the Air Max 96 II, they don’t just bring back memories, but give off a more sporty look. I’d wear these for running or doing other sports activities, with the air soles giving a lot of benefit.

The synthetic leather combined with the mesh make them breathable and sturdy so would be great for wearing while active.

Air Max Tailwind V x Skepta

Nike Air Max Tailwind V Skepta

Nike and Skepta have collaborated on a pair of Air Max Tailwind V, and this is what they look like.

The design is definitely interesting, with a black base and blue hues on the midsole and top of the trainer. There’s lots of lines within the design giving a panelled look, which I think gives off a bit of a futuristic vibe.

The tongue features SK Air branding, along with the Tailwind wording.

I am not sure if I like this design, but if you do you can get them this month for £160 if you can find them.

Adidas ZX 8500 Overkill

Adidas ZX 8500 Overkill Trainers

The Adidas ZX 8500 Overkill are a pair of trainers that are right up my ally. Adidas teaming up with Overkill again, and this is what you get with the collaboration.

When it comes to trainer design I like there’s two things I like. Something sleek and understated, or something that makes a statement. This is the latter.

The A-ZX 8500 are full of colour, a white base filled with neon pink, yellow, green, purple and orange. graffiti style detailing keeps the look cool, which is perfect for a 90’s nostalgia or street style type of shoe.

If you can get your hands on a pair their retail for £110, but are already sold out on the official Adidas site. Check back here to see if they’re back in stock.

MSCHF Lil Naz X Air Max 97 Satan Trainers

Air Max 97 Satan Trainers by MSCHF Lil Naz X

These trainers have had the world talking. Not just sneakerheads, but the real world news. I am talking of course about the MSCHF Lil Naz X Air Max 97 Satan trainers.

I’ve already covered this is more depth, but here’s a brief summary of what’s happened. The trainers are Air Max 97, made by streetwear label MSCHF in collaboration with Lil Naz X. The controversy came because the limited edition trainers came with a drop of real blood in the air sole.

Not only that, these were not an official collab with Nike, in fact Nike have said they have they have nothing to do with them and launched a lawsuit.

The latest twist in this is that in response MSCHF have released a T-shirt for the price of $66.60 which has the lawsuit filed printed on to the shirt. Who knows where this will go next.

Verdict

And that’s your lot this month. I think you’ll agree that there’s been some great trainers released so far this month.
