The NBA season has come to an end, but that only marks the beginning of a few things. Nike and Jordan Brand gear up for the Playoffs with the releases of the Elite, while Jordan Brand gave us a look at Playoff colorways of their three signature stars. Sneaker News brought you a first-hand interview with Jason Petrie and Leo Chang, who detailed in full the entire Elite Series mission and concept. Another top story came from the NFL, as the Nike x NFL partnership finally came to sneaker fruition with a special set of footwear releases marking the NFL Draft and the eight divisions of the league. In other sports related news, we gave you a run-down of the best NBA Feet of the year, while handing out awards to the baller/sneakerheads who gave NBA fans a little something extra. LeBron James was definitely popular name in the ‘Best of’ category, but a look at some upcoming Soldier VI releases might have us more excited of what’s to come. Yet another sick KD IV colorway is in books, as the ‘Aunt Pearl’ Think Pink colorway is set for a release in just two weekends from now, and a first viewing of two upcoming colorways of the Lunar Hyperdunk 2012 rounded out Nike Basketball headlines.

Nike SB continues to regain ground with the latest push of solid releases as we got a look at another Zoom Koston collab – this time hooking up with the Air Max 90 Infrared. adidas launched the sequel to the widely popular Crazy Light this week to a special group of media including a first-hand experience of the  event from Sneaker News. Other adidas news came from the Skate division, as team rider Dennis Busenitz shows us that he’s stricken with the Blues. Air Force 1 madness continues in 2012, but this week, we should say it’s more accurately described as Air Force 1 ‘Linsanity’. Ronnie Fieg’s latest Asics collaboration officially dropped, and release info for the Packer Shoes x Saucony Grid 9000 was worth jotting down in your memory. We brought you a look at some more Air Jordan goodies from the interwebs, like the DMP ‘Eyelet’ sample and a pair of OGs manufactured in Italy. The most enthralling news came when Nikestore canceled midnight online releases, which looks to be just the beginning of Nike’s attempts to revise the entire horizon of sneaker releases for the future. We’ve got all the top stories below, so check out the rest of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below!
