Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 7/16 – 7/22
There’s a ton of great Sneaker News from the past week, so let’s get right down to business. First off, we showed you a glimpse at a sample of the Black/Pink Air Yeezy 2, spotted during a scene in Kanye’s documentary film. Moving on the Air Jordan news, we gave you a look at special China-inspired PEs of three Jordan Brand sig shoes, but we also dropped some fresh news and images of other Retro models. Nike SB continues to puzzle with the state of the releases of the Entourage SB Dunks, and the new Green LeBron 8 V/2 unreleased sample had us wondering what other colorways were in store. Air Force 1s made some big news as well, as we saw the Air Force 1 Low Hyperfuse as well as the limited ‘We Are New York’ Pack. Nike iD also launched a slew of new options and models this week, making for a much-needed refresher in the Nike iD catalog.
Continuing with Nike, Sneaker News presented some new colorways of the Hyperdunk 2011, and also dropped the release info for the Ripstop Penny 1 in Black/Royal. The Jeremy Scott collection continues to wow us, as we brought you a look at the JS ‘Gorilla’, inspired by King Kong. Swizz Beatz’ Reebok connection was in full force as well, as Tuesday night’s star-studded event caught our attention. Ronnie Fieg’s next collaboration with Asics was revealed, which featured a trio of black, grey, and aqua blue. We got a small dose of celebrity feet this week, thanks to Big Sean’s AJV Grapes and Gary Payton sneaker retrospect. Sneaker News also selected the Nike Dunk High as the focus of this week’s Battle of the Customs, which consisted of 11 designs from 8 different artists. And finally, the Sneaker News Weekly Buyer’s Guide brought you the best selection of kicks of the past week and the upcoming weekend. There’s plenty more below so cool off with the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind!
