weekly rewind summary 12 23 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 12/17   12/23

The Concords are here, the Concords are here! The biggest mass sneaker release of the year went down last night, as thousands of sneakerheads waited outside storefronts or in front of their computers, ready to claim their Concords once they became available. It was the perfect ending to one of the craziest weeks we’ve had on Sneaker News all year long. The lid on the Nike LeBron container exploded off, as we got a look at a slew of new colorways like the ‘Dunkman/Griffeys’ as well as the neck-breaking ‘Big Bang’ joints. Kobe Bryant sat down with Eric Avar to discuss the Kobe VII design, but Sneaker News quickly pointed out some upcoming colorways like the Poison Dart Frog and the ‘All-Star’. The Christmas Pack releases were also a hot topic of discussion, as four great holiday-themed colorways are currently set to drop on Christmas Day. Nike SB got into the mix, as we brought a thorough preview of Fall 2012 releases while introducing the P-Rod 6, the Challenge Court, and the FC x FP.

Celebs and NBA players were also a huge hit, as we caught a look at Wale and Justin Bieber in some heat, while LeBron James and a week’s worth of college ball-players stunned us with their on-court kicks. We finally got a nice side-profile look at the Air Yeezy 2, which last week was confirmed for a March 23, 2012 release. Ronnie Fieg’s last Asics collab or 2011 – the Mazarine Blue Gel Saga – has an official release date as well. In Foamposite news, we caught a look at a White/Silver PE of the Zoom Rookie worn by Penny himself, and Jason Negron set the bar even higher with his ‘Light-Up’ custom Foamposites. As we near the end of the 2011, Sneaker News is on a mission to determine the best sneakers of the year. How do we determine that? By introducing the second annual Sneaker News Readers’ Choice Poll, which features twenty different categories. Sneaker News has a ton of stuff for you for the remainder of the year, so check out the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind, vote in the Readers’ Choice Poll, and have a safe and happy Holiday weekend!

u acutally said somethin of substance? he's growin up on us yall lol.... but fa real, da whole nationwide concord fiasco was horrible. all da small citys were cool cuz aint no real sneakerheads like dat. but all da major citys got fucked by either da police, managers & employees tryin to buy 5 pair to resell, ignorant niggas doin dumb shit, riots, fights, shootings... got to do better out here.. instead of wastin they time makin all these dumb hybrid & lounge shoes, & make more concords, so people can get them... and next yr is gonna b even worse wit da columbia's droppin. and those are more dope then da concords in my opinion
