weekly rewind 4 30 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind:  4/24   4/30

Let’s take a look back on the past week as we close out the first third of 2010. One sneakerhead took the Air Jordan VI Varsity vs. Infra controversy into his own hands, while owners of two vintage Jordans saw them crumble before their eyes. The NBA Playoffs continued its forward push, as we saw a great look at some more colorways and PEs of our favorite basketball kicks. Two classic Nike models are getting notable 2010 makeovers, and a reworked favorite gets a Bo-inspired baseball remix. Even more celebrities came out of the woodworks, but this time from an unexpected source; Robert Downey Jr. and his Iron Man 2 crew came out with some great high-tops and Forces that really had us in shock and awe. And on a lighter note, we got a look at Michael Jordan’s private jet, the real “Air Jordan”. There’s a bunch more to see, so continue reading for the top stories from the past week.
