Welcome to Week 2 of the new year, typically filled with broken resolutions and the itch to begin a fresh year’s worth of new sneakers. Sneaker News didn’t miss a beat with all the big-time news that went down, like the ‘Year Of The Dragon’ releases that featured special-edition boxes (Air Jordan with three shelves, Kobe VII with 3-D, KD IV with a all-around ‘tattoo’-ing). The LeBron ‘Year Of The Dragon’ is actually the ‘China’ that dropped in 2011, but we still got some LBJ headlines with the surfacing of the ‘Fortune’ Magazine Sample PE, inspired by one of LeBron’s favorite magazine covers. Chris Paul and the Jordan CP3.V made some news after last week’s debut, as CP3 and designer Tom Luedecke discussed the inspiration behind the detailed design of the CP3.V. With NBA and NCAA games in full swing, we caught a glimpse at some great sneakers, like LeBron’s Red/Black PE and the Zoom KD IV PE worn by the Texas Longhorns.

Are there plans to merge Nike SB and Nike 6.0? Recent developments point to some sort of restructuring of the two Action Sports brands, possibly to form one umbrella label to cover all genres. Nike Retros are poised for a strong year, with the Diamond Turf II, Total Griffey Max ’99, Zoom Huarache 2k4, and Air Max NM all making news this past week. On the flipside, the Zoom Rookie – a Retro-inspired hybrid – caught our attention with another look at the ‘Eggplant’ as well as a look at a Black/Gold sample. On adidas’ side, the adiRose Dominate came to light with the All-Star and Lei Feng special edition releases. Celebrity Feet is always a popular section on Sneaker News, and one common name is Wale, who owned all the headlines in that category until Chi McBride broke necks with some sick Jordans. Finally, Jason Negron continued his works of Foamposite art with a ‘Knicks’ custom. We’ve got plenty more headlines below so take a look at the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind to stay on top of all-things sneakers!
