What makes Sneaker News Blogs: WDYWT so great is that Sneaker News readers love to get their hands on sneakers ahead of release dates! We always show some hot upcoming releases when they pop up a few weeks (or months) in advance, but this week is particularly special because we’ve got the LeBron 8 ‘Big Bang’, Zoom KD IV ‘China’, Air Jordan 2012 ‘UNC’, and Air Foamposite One ‘Electrolime’ part of the Top 20 line-up. But just as we go into the future, we also take a trip to the past, because on sneakerhead in South Korea (by way of Vancouver) spiced things up with an OG pair of the Nike Air Max 1. Everything else in between is pure heat, so take a look at this week’s Sneaker News Blogs: Best of WDYWT and vote for your favorite at the end!
Nike Air Zoom Flight’ 99 – Anand – Mongolia
Nike Air Max 1 OG – Mel Vin – Vancouver, Canada
KRINK x 1World x Nike Air Force 1 – Michael Hall – Houston, TX
Nike Flightposites – Mongolia
Air Jordan XX ‘West’ – Tristan – Torrance, CA
Wow, this is the first time I got two pairs on here, Nice!!! KD4 YOTD, and Lebron 9 galaxy aka Big Bang
Hey Justin F. nice job on the KD year of the dragons. I live in the Bronx as well. Just wondering how you got your pair bro?
My 5th Time in the Top 20 and 1st Time With a Sneaker Other Then an Air Max 95! Good Job to All! But Even though I'm in it My Vote goes to the Atmos 95's! Gotta Show My Support......
It really pisses me off that everyone and there dog has jumped on to the Lebron 9 band wagon. I remember the first few photos that released of the 9's people were clowning them like they were the worst shoe ever made and now its the complete opposite now that dope colorways are dropping. I wish all you Lebron haters and band wagoners would leave the Lebrons for us true fans so it wouldnt be so damn hard to get the exclusives.
Alrighty, let me discuss what I see......... Alot of swaggless lames, I mean come on for crying out loud dude pants were soo short I seen his ankles, then their was that group of lames who transformer shoes on..... Plain and simple no swag except dude with the undefeated dunks (that was swagg) Sneaker News needs to give you guys a SWAGGASM asap # water tower swagg gang
A lot of crack I see. paytons, krink, kd's, achoo, olives, xi's, 112's, electrolimes, big bangs ooohh weee
Gotta go with the Laneys Just cause it looks like he actually wears them instead of putting them on take to a pic and then putting them back in the box
Hey man good job on the KD year of the dragon joints. I live in the bronx too and I just wanted to know how you got ur hands on a pair?
Honestly the design is still ass cheeks but a good colorway can make just about any shoe look good and the latest color schemes have been bananas
I didn't notice the heat this week cus I was looking for "swagg" I should be focused on their sneaks but I'm too busy lookin at pants to see who's pants has "swagg" , Oh his pants are short he doesn't have "swagg" OH, dude with the undefeated has skinny jeans on, now THAT'S "swagg". I gotta be the shit because I keep using the word "swagg" maybe you'll think I have style because I keep saying "swagg" I call people that i dont know never even met lame as so not to seem like a lame myself plus I use the word "swagg" so i cant be a lame, notice how clever I'am I said "swaggasm" isnt that witty? I mean "switty"? .... Ahhhhhh SHUDDUP
Sorry bro but I'm gonna have to disagree. So you are saying if you put the Galaxy colorway on a pair of AJF 5's people would be going bananas. I call bullshit my friend, they would be sitting on sales racks for $20.
Dude. Perfect response. I've said it before, "swag/swagg" needs to die. Stupid childish word and a trend that will not go away! Why can't you just say style?? Swag used to mean merchandise from events pretty much. Now it means "I'm biting a trend REALLY hard and I make fun of those who aren't wearing what's 'cool'". Seriously. This word needs a rest for a good hundred years.
20$ says that even if they put galaxy on AJ5s and they made it a limited release theyd sell out and be worth 1000$ to hypebeasts
You can call whatever you'd like my friend but that is NOT what I said. What I did say was "just about any shoe". Clearly there are exceptions to the rules and even in the right colorway the AJF 5 was nice so as aforementioned: the right colorway on just about any shoe can make it look good
