Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 11/20 – 11/26
This may be a holiday week, but the sneaker world never rests. This past week brought a ton of goodies, but of course, most people’s priorities were on the huge crop of Black Friday releases hitting stores this week. We already knew about drops like the Flint XIIIs, Bin 23 AJ VIIs and Black Air Force 1 Foamposites, but a few juicy releases like the DeLorean Dunks and the AF1 Destroyer Pack popped up out of nowhere. Hopefully you didn’t blow all your cash though, because there’s plenty more good stuff on the way. We got some nice looks at the Air Jordan XIII ‘Playoffs,’ the AJ III Retro packaging and the upcoming Christmas edition of the Zoom Kobe VI.
Elsewhere in the basketball world, the Zoom KD III hit retail this week and Kevin Durant celebrated by showing them off on the NBA court, while Gilbert Arenas got some attention of his own for showing up to play in a pair of Jordan CMFT 12′s. LeBron made some news of his own with the unveiling of his new logo and a sneak peek at a Dunkman-ish colorway of the Nike LeBron 8. Aside from the b-ball realm, it appears that Nike has plenty of other projects in the works like collaborations with Stussy, PlayStation and a fresh new line of LIVESTRONG kicks. Keep reading for this week’s Sneaker News Weekly Rewind for the latest info on all these stories and more.
