weekly rewind 7 13 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 7/7   7/13

A heavy focus on basketball settled in this week, as Team USA’s roster was whittled down to the final 12. It’s first exhibition game against the Dominican Republic proved that the Red, White, and Blue are again the team to beat, but expect a competitive battle in the Olympics as Team USA completes its preparation in the World Basketball Festival, which is now underway. In Air Jordan news, a first detailed look at the upcoming ‘Bred’ Air Jordan IV was seen, while we got the exclusive story on the true origin of the Gentry Humphrey PE. LeBron James leaked a pair of his own special make-ups of the LeBron 9 Low inspired by ‘Arnold Palmer’, but that might’ve been topped by the Sneaker News exclusive preview of the FC Barcelona colorways of the Kobe VII. Another premier Nike signature athlete, Paul Rodriguez, sat down with Sneaker News this week to chat with about his latest sig shoe and some classic SB Dunks he’s skated in.

This week’s top headlines were rife with collaborations as well; Liberty of London preps for another release this coming Monday, A.P.C. previews its on NSW partnership, Ronnie Fieg’s next Asics makes a provocative splash, and Vans joins forces with the legendary Metallica. And speaking of legends, two of the all-time greatest Air Max colorways get a vintage makeover for 2013. The 2012 MLB All-Star Game was definitely worth tuning into as Nike outfitted the league’s brightest with the brightest cleats for the Home Run Derby and the mid-summer classic. The week’s best custom sneaker could be a trio of Air Max colorways derived from one of the funkiest SB Dunk releases of all-time, while a questionable look-see sample of the Air Jordan X stirred up an interesting discussion regarding the nature of Michael’s return to the game in ’95. Anchoring the evening’s news was a look back at five of the most memorable ‘Pack’ releases, from the earliest Dunks to a lengthy collab with some of the world’s most respected sneaker shops. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind won’t disappoint, so read on below and get caught up!
