Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 9/11 – 9/17
What’s new in kicks this week? The last seven days was as jam-packed with the latest Sneaker News, so let’s get started; first up, Sneaker News gave you info on three upcoming Jordan Retro releases as well as the entire Jordan Brand Holiday 2010 Collection. In keeping with the new, Nike introduced another Foamposite shoe perfect for the winter season as well as an all-new colorway of the LeBron VIII. LeBron’s fellow Nike rep Eric Koston is getting his own pro model, and the Nike Air Pressure is returning – in a different form. Sneaker News also gave you a look at Spring 2011 Nike Basketball releases – some of which will be available at The Nike Vault, a new Nike Basketball retail spot located in the Staples Center.
The last week in Sneaker News also included a lot of ‘big names’. Yankee stadium was packed with hip-hop fans and the VMAs was pop-music central as a ton of celebrities like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Swizz Beats, Drake, Eminem, and many more enjoyed the spotlight with some fresh kicks. Sneaker News also had a chance to interview Dwight Howard and Carlos Boozer – in which we asked the NBA stars some pressing sneaker-related questions. In other sporting news, Rafael Nadal closed out the U.S. Open with a win as we got a look at a Tennis-Ball Courtballistec 2.2 shoe, and Team USA brought home a not-so-familiar Gold from the FIBA World Championships. It’s impossible to miss a beat with Sneaker News so stop in check out the week’s Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
