Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 7/24 – 7/30
July’s coming to a close so while some of you may be wallowing in self-pity at the inevitable return of the school year, cheer yourself up with this week’s Sneaker News Weekly Rewind. This week brought closer looks at the Cool Grey XI and Flint XIII, which should ease the pain brought on by piles of schoolwork. New ‘Jays’ didn’t disappoint either, as we got a look at a new colorway of the Air Jordan II as well as a Lasered Fusion IV. New images of an upcoming Electric Green Foamposite as well as the return of the OG Diamond Turf colorway brightened our moods, as did the release of some August 2010 Nike SB releases.
On the basketball side of things, the color red was a recurring theme, as both the Skills Academy PE of the Soldier IV as well as a Quickstrike pair of the Uptempo 97 were colored up in the eye-catching tone. Things were toned down with Steve Nash’s new signature shoe, which features – big surprise – a low-cut construction. Sneaker News directed a shining light at our readers with the launch of the Best of WDYWT, which showcases the twenty best WDYWT submissions of the week. And finally, the Nike Air Force 1 made a campaigned convincingly with the introduction of the 5 Boroughs Pack, a long-awaited concept that has finally come to life. There’s a lot more to see so if you need a drug-free mood enhancer, check out the final Sneaker News Weekly Rewind of July.
