The NBA Playoffs are in full swing, the Olympics are a few months away, and the Summer months are around the corner – things are heating up on Sneaker News! We got a first detailed look at the Air Jordan VII ‘Gold Medal’ of the ‘Gold Medal Pack’ this week, and a new colorway of the Son Of Mars popped up as well. Spike Lee has been an anchor in the Jordan game, but he changed that up by showing off a sick Air Foamposite One PE earlier this week and wore them for Game 3 of the Knicks/Heat series. LeBron, of course, was in town, but we were reminded of another NYC visit from 2007, when he was guest host of SNL. Durant continues his Finals push as he was spotted in a few PEs of his KD IV, but a sample of the KD IV Elite had us wondering why his signature model was excluded from the special edition Elite Series. In other ‘Feet’ sightings, Kim Kardashian, who typically turns heads with her assets and dramatic antics, caught our eyes with the White/Cement III.

The ‘Safari’ is making a healthy comeback this year, and we’re glad it’s getting the attention it deserves because it pre-dates Elephant, Reflective, Patent, Translucent Soles, and almost every other unique design that’s become so heavily popular today. The Air Flight One, which made a return in February, comes back again this October in the Black/White colorway that MJ actually wore for one game during the ’95 Playoffs. Last year’s NBA Champ Dirk Nowitzki had a special Bespoke made for him with a dope ‘Sheed-like stitched logo of his signature fadeaway jumper. Penny showed off yet another Foamposite exclusive – the ‘Galaxy’ rendition of the Zoom Rookie. Two notable collabs to look forward to – High & Lows hit on Asics and Ronnie Fieg’s jump on the New Balance bandwagon. The Air Jordan Samples and PEs category was one of the best we’ve seen, as a tonal red Air Jordan IV and an Air Jordan Penny Hardaway PE topped those headlines. We’ve got a complete look at Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below, so take a look and get caught up in the world of Sneaker News!
