Sneaker News Weekly Rewind – 2/13 – 2/19
One would expect the sneaker world to come down from the high of the roller-coaster that was the NBA All-Star Weekend, but this week didn’t miss a single beat. On top of the post-All-Star coverage, the last seven days was filled with buzz about new releases, a look into a wear-test sample that could’ve changed the course of recent sneaker history, the launch of a new company with Chinese roots, and a glimpse into a big-name sneakerhead’s favorite kicks of all time. The week was quite a grab-bag of info; limited kicks, clothes designed by famous artists, toy figurines, unreleased samples, and more. Check out our weekly recap if you missed any of the breaking news and be in the know.
