rewind 6 1 12 summary Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/26   6/1

June is officially here (my how fast the year has gone by), so we’ll kick off the new month with yet another Weekly Rewind with amazing news. We finally caught a first detailed look at the upcoming ‘Raptors’ Air Jordan VII while getting treated with a new Son Of Mars colorway. Nike officially unveiled the most hyped shoe of the year (the Yeezy 2), although by then, Sneaker News had the Yeezy 2 covered from beginning to end. The Nike BBall trio were headlines again; KD got his Scoring Title props, LeBron 9 Low extends through June, and Kobe chants ‘USA’ with a new colorway. Some older Nike Basketball hits came to light, as we got treated with more angles of the Dream Team Collection, while the ‘World Basketball Festival’ Pack, consisting of Washington, Barcelona, and London, will get Dunked and Forced out. Can’t forget the ‘Miami Dolphins’ colorway of the Speed Turf Max either!

Nike SB’s June arrivals are hitting stores, but it was a teaser of an upcoming Brooklyn Projects collaboration that got our attention. Collaborations were key; Packer Shoes hits us with the ‘Tech Pack’ while Asics partners with Afew and WOEI in two separate projects. adidas hits us with some Jeremy Scott specialties for Fall/Winter 2012, and Reebok continues to make noise with the confirmation of the Twilight Zone re-release – not to mention this week’s Classics Revisited feature. Back to Nike – Cole Haan and Umbro have parted ways with Nike (effective in 2013), but they made up with that ‘loss’ with the completed Nike Logo project, which displays every single Nike logo in history. There’s a lot more to see below so kick off June with the best recap of the best sneaker site out there!
