The third week into October, and still no NBA season. Around this time of year, fans of basketball and sneakers (a rather large overlapping sample set) typically prepare for the opening of the NBA season, waiting to see what new sneakers are on court. Unfortunately, we don’t have that luxury this year, but NBA stars have done their best to keep fans happy, and Sneaker News has continued its non-stop reporting of the best shoes of the present and the future. Starting off with Jordan Brand, Sneaker News gave you a look at two colorways of the Jordan Son Of Mars, a purported sequel to the Air Jordan Spiz’ike. Other upcoming sneakers like the LeBron 9 co-designed by Miami-based artist Freegums also caught our attention. Nike SB debuted its November collection, but news of yet another delay on the Entourages put a damper on eager spirits. Celebrities were out and about once again, with Kanye, Wale, Fabolous, and Entourage’s Turtle being spotted with some sick kicks.

In Retro news, a new Black/Yellow Air Max NM caused a stir, leaving our readers to debate on a nickname for the upcoming shoe. Penny Hardaway showed off an all-white pair of Foamposite Ones, which aren’t likely to release. The Nike Air Force 1 was a popular topic, as we brought you an exclusive look at some 2012 releases as well as the N7 colorway. Dunks will be ‘Deconstructed’ as well, as we showed you a trio of the Nike Dunk High Deconstruct, following last week’s Air Force 1 Deconstruct news. In adidas news, the ’98 All-Star colorway of the Crazy 8 released, and adidas Originals collaborated with an icon of a passed generation (The Muppets) and separately with a pop sensation of the current (Korea’s 2NE1). In sneaker events, Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand teamed up on a ‘takeover’ of NYC, with the FlightLab159 exhibit, a special event on one of NYC’s piers, and the debut of the ‘Post-Up’ iPhone app. Other notable events took place in Chicago, where D-Rose and adidas unveiled the adiZero Rose 2, and in Philly, where Sneaker Pimps made its latest stop. We’ve got plenty more from this week, so check out the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind and get caught up!
