Anytime we get a first look at an upcoming Air Jordan Retro, excitement stirs! This week brought a first look at the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ and some new images of the XI Low and the Cool Grey XII. President Barack Obama also received a special pair of Spiz’ikes from Spike Lee during the president’s trip to NYC. The ‘Swingman’ colorway of the LeBron 9 seems to be rising as one of the best LeBron releases of 2012, as is the Kobe VII ‘Year Of The Dragon’ which features a special box in the shape of a dragon’s head. Some new team-based KD IV colorways also released, while the ‘YOTD’ colorway has started to hit retailers. More Foamposite news came when we caught another look at the ‘Galaxy’ colorway, while a ‘Gem Green’ Foamposite Pro looks to be in the works for July. Nike SB previewed some interesting things scheduled for this year, like a re-release of the Pushead x Nike SB Dunk Low in ‘bleached’ form.

It was a strong week for ballers as Ray Allen flashed a sick Air Jordan XII PE and Monta Ellis rocked Space Jams during the week’s games, but the celebs weren’t too shabby either as Wale rocked the Air Jordan V ‘Tokyo 23’ and Ludacris wore the Olympic VII. Serena Williams will receive her own special capsule of tennis hear in celebration of Black History Month, kicking off a new season of tennis for Nike’s top athletes. Supreme will collaborate with Vans once again, while Burn Rubber works its magic on the New Balance MT580. Jeremy Scott’s Fall 2012 collection was previewed this week, highlighted by a ‘groovy’ bear. Finally, Nike launched the Nike+ FuelBand, revolutionizing the work-out experience of athletes worldwide with its state-of-the-art technology packaged in to a lightweight wristband. We’ve got plenty of great stories below so check out the Weekly Rewind in its entirety below!
