Sneaker News Weekly Rewind – 2/20 – 2/26
The Northeast fell victim yet again to an unrelenting snowstorm, and that meant staying indoors and sitting around the house. Luckily, there was a myriad of great news for Northeasterners to warm up to. The week kicked off with unveiled images of the Kobe Bryant Aston Martin Hyperdunk, and equally surprising was Hip-Pop artist Wale wearing the upcoming Nike Air Max 24/7 at a show. The “new” surely grabbed our attention, but this week was dominated by the “old”, as we saw some insane Jordan memorabilia in the form of autographed and game-worn shoes, and an informative article outlining the History of Nike Air. If you’re exhausted from all the shoveling, or were just unable to keep up with this week’s news, take a load off, check in, and get familiar with the past week.
