Release date calendar for running shoes – 2024

Nike Alphafly 3 Proto.

2024 started off strong with the Nike Alphafly 3 release.

The release calendar table was last updated on May 15th, 2024. Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the full list. While this calendar strives for a high rate of accuracy, please note that the dates are a mix of publicly confirmed release dates, best estimates based on historical launch cadence, and informal information on launch dates. To minimize brand influence and reciprocity, Solereview does not reach out to the brands directly for information on release dates.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see a calendar that lists the release dates of upcoming running shoe models for a given year? Say, not just for the calendar year, but for a rolling 18-month period?

There are so many models spread across nearly a dozen shoe brands, so it can get confusing to keep track of launch months – even for us shoe-reviewing folks.

Except that such a calendar doesn’t exist. At least, not for running shoes. This page is a baby step towards changing that; this article will help our readers keep track of what’s next, and budget accordingly.

So why would anyone need a shoe release calendar? Sure, it’s good to know when the new models are arriving, but does the information result in tangible benefits, if at all?

Knowing the release date in advance makes the best use of your running shoe money. Here’s why this data helps make an informed purchase decision:

The previous model will go on markdown sales and can be bought for less money

Let’s say a popular shoe model gets its annual refresh every January. To clear inventory, brands and retailers will put the previous model on clearance sale when the release of the updated model becomes imminent.

Knowing the release date of the upcoming model could mean the difference between paying full price and saving money on discount sales. Most of the time, the old and new models overlap each other in the market, and that’s when the best deals are had.

The upcoming model could be an improved version that’s worth waiting for

The heel counter of the Hoka Mach 6.

Running shoes are seldom perfect, so many runners skip buying the current version and prefer to wait for the updated model.

The new model could be just an ‘upper-only’ update with no changes

Many brands re-use the midsole and outsole for several years, with two years being a common practice. For example, the Hoka Arahi 7 and 6 are based on the same sole, and so are the Altra Lone Peak 8 and 7.

If the ‘new’ model is just going to re-use the same midsole, then why spend more money on the new shoe – unless there is something wrong with the existing product?

After reviewing running shoes for over a decade, we have a fair idea of the design refresh cycle. For example, Nike, adidas, and Saucony tend to recycle their midsole designs for two years.

In other words, a running shoe released in 2024 will use the same sole for 2025. On the other hand, Asics and Brooks are now doing annual top-to-bottom refreshes for their main models.

Solereview doesn’t have a personal relationship with brands or retailers, so the information here is not official but our best guess.

Based on what we know, here are the highlight releases for the next 12 months. Just keep in mind that it takes at least a month for a shoe (after the release date) to be widely distributed across different retail channels.

The New Balance Rebel V4 in the outdoors.

January to March 2024:

In the first quarter of the year, several popular trainers are released. For example, the Nike Alphafly V3 (released) and the Asics Nimbus 26 (released) will find their way to the market, and so will the much anticipated Saucony Endorphin Pro, (released) Speed 4 (released), and the New Balance SC Elite V4. (released)

The New Balance Fuelcell Rebel V4 (released) will also be launched in February.

April to June 2024:

These three months are packed with new running shoe launches. Popular versatile trainers like the Asics Superblast V2, Saucony Triumph 22 (released), and Pegasus 41 will launch during this period.

July to September 2024:

Popular franchise models like the Asics Kayano 31, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 24, Nike React Infinity 5, and Nike Structure 26 will also show up around this time. The Hoka Clifton 10 and Bondi 9 are also slated for release.

The much-anticipated update to the Saucony Tempus is also expected in this quarter.

October to December 2024:

Things get quieter in the last quarter. This is when most winterized packs show up – cue the Asics AWL, adidas Cold.RDY, Nike Shield, and Saucony Vizipro/Runshield models. The remainder of popular franchise models like the Asics Novablast 5, New Balance 1080 V14, Nike Vomero 18, and Brooks Ghost 17 will also get a quiet release.

The asterisk on the change summary denotes that it is our best guess and the final product is not confirmed yet.
