weekly rewind summary 5 11 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/5   5/11

The sneaker world caught on fire when reports leaked out of a considerable hike in prices for upcoming Air Jordan Retros, but Sneaker News brought you an update straight from JB that cleared the air on the matter. Pieces of the LeBron X were revealed this week, with full-length visible Zoom and visible Flywire being the highlight details for LeBron’s first double-digit sig shoe. The ‘What The Kobe’ opened our eyes, as it features a mash of all the wild Kobe VII releases like the Leopard and Dart Frog, while headlines made by the ‘Memphis Blues’ Zoom Rookie hinted at a possible release. The latest of the AF1-XXX Collection revealed itself to be the High-Frequency Digital Camo edition, which features a techy upper graphic laced with reflective panels. Vans had some notable headlines this week, like the fresh ‘Watermelon’ Authentic and the sad news of a sneaker heist in which $10,000 worth of Vans were stolen.

NBA Feet enjoyed a solid week, but the main headline was Blake Griffin’s Hyperdunk Elite, which proved to have a few issues after getting stepped on on-court. Allen Iverson’s name has begun to float around, but a cameo in Swizzy’s latest music video proved that Reebok may have more in store for ‘The Answer’, like the return of the Question in multiple colorways. Some great collaborations are on the way, like Sneaker Freaker’s 10th Anniversary celebration in the form of a Saucony Grid 9000 and two Asics projects with HAL and Woei. Tom Sachs took us up to space with NIKECraft, which features a small capsule of apparel and footwear ready for space travel. Of all the great samples and PEs we showed you, the Metallic Royal Air Jordan XVII was certainly the most eye-catching, as was the unreleased ‘Wizards’ colorway of the Air Jordan XII. Finally, Sneaker News kicked off a string of nightly tributes to the classics, beginning with the Air Foamposite One and some of the forgotten colorways. Check out all of the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below and stay on top of all the latest sneaker news – that’s what you came for!
