Sneaker hype knows no pause. While you were taking a break over the holidays, maybe spending some socially distanced time with your loved ones, the long buildup to some of 2021's biggest footwear releases was steadily mounting.

Without further ado, these are the sneakers that will dominate the months ahead.
