weekly rewind 4 20 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 4/14   4/20

As we get closer to the 2012 Olympics, the special releases put forth by Nike and Jordan Brand are beginning to leak out, and the small tastes we’ve been getting are only expanding our appetites! We got another clear look at the Air Jordan Gold Medal Pack while NSW’s Air Force 1 and Dunk releases placed the USA/Barcelona connection in ’92 in the spotlight with the special tongue labels and colorways. In LeBron news, we got a first look at the Vivid Orange/Cherry colorway dubbed the ‘Bubblicious’ – a reference to LeBron’s ‘Lightning Lemonade’ flavor. A new military-inspired colorway of the KD IV raised a few eyebrows, while the Cheetah-inspired Kobe VII gave us goosebumps with the fierce design. We got a good look at some upcoming colorways of Nike Retro releases like the Air Max Pillar and Diamond Turf II, while Premier Skateshop pulled out all the stops for the releases of its Nike SB collaboration.

The Air Force 1 celebration continued as we got a look at the next AF1-XXX release, and HTM worked on a second collection of FlyKnit releases that debuted on Wednesday. Some more of the finer details of the Air Yeezy 2 were unveiled, like the official box-tag, insoles, and the screw-off lace-tips on the lacebag. In NBA news, LeBron James broke out two new LeBron takedown models on consecutive nights, while celebrities made their own headlines as Rick Ross gave some personal notes on his past and his rise to the Reebok partnership and Lil’ Wayne broadcasted his partnership with Supra. Ewing Athletics confirmed the return of its most popular OG design and New Balance introduced the next release of its Tall Tales Pack. The Sneaker News headline that stirred up the most discussion was Nike’s new Twitter RSVP system, which aimed at protecting consumers and retailers while eliminating campouts/wristbands in the process. There’s a lot more to see below so hook up with the Authority and check out the full Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
