After the insane Polar Vortex we got to thinking, is it Spring yet? Perhaps wishful thinking in various part of the country but we’re going with it. We covered some of our favorite early Spring sneakers, including adidas Lexicon, A-COLD-WALL* x Nike Zoom Vomero, Sacai X Nike Blazer MID andS Sankuanz X Puma, last month. Here are the some more early Spring sneakers we have our eyes on to add to that list.
