Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/29 – 6/4
To close out the first half of 2010, June kicked off with a great look at the upcoming Jordan Brand Collection. Sneaker News provided an extensive look at the Fall 2010 Jordan Brand releases as well as an early opportunity to snag the Air Jordan VI Infrared Pack. Some sweet JB and Nike Basketball samples were brought to our attention, which left our readers excited for things to come. A Foamposite x Nike Air Force 1 High was finally revealed, as was an interesting new colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High constructed of other Air Jordan 1s.
The Conference Finals came to a close and the NBA Finals mainstage kicked off with a new colorway of the Nike Zoom Kobe V and AF1 High by Sheed. On the non-sports side of Nike, we got a great preview of upcoming Nike Sportswear models, as well as a well-received re-released of the OG colorway Varsity Blue Air Max 1. The Air Force 1 was indeed a recurring theme for the week – Foamposite AF1, Rasheed Wallace’s new digs, Classics Revisited – as the Jones Beach x Nike Air Force 1 will officially re-release on June 5th. Grab an ice-cold iced tea (or brewski for our of-age readers) and enjoy all that went down in the past week.
