What an amazing week it’s been! Sneaker News spent time in D.C. to take in all the Nike World Basketball Festivities, but that was only the start of a string of great news. Jordan Brand unveiled the ‘J2K’ edition of the Air Jordan VII, and a teaser of the upcoming Bred XI induced some chatter. A bunch of unreleased Nike LeBron samples were worth noting, but a new golden colorway of the KD IV might’ve been the top news for Nike’s Big Three. The Supreme X Nike SB Dunk Low released this week to a rabid crowd desperate for some enticing SB Dunk collaborations, while another revamped classic in the Air Max 90 Hyperfuse ‘Infrared’ got Air Max fans into the frenzy. Air Force 1s were worth noting as well, particularly the Foamposite Low and the fire-proof Dover Street Market collaboration.

The Air Penny saga continues this Holiday, as a first detailed viewing of the “Orlando” Penny V dropped this week, so maybe that model will be included ten years from now when Nike Basketball decides to do a thirty-year retrospective (they just announced a sick 20-year retrospective, beginning this Monday). Fila teams up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a playful sneaker collaboration, New Balance and long-time retailer West NYC partner up, and a sick rainbow leopard colorway of the Vans Authentic leads another bunch of great Vans headlines. Arguably the best tennis player in history gets a special colorway of the Vapor 9 Tour as a reward for his latest victory, while other Nike athletes get noticed for their off-the-court footwear selections. Sneaker Con confirms another date in Miami on August 4th, so keep that circled on your calendar. Finally, Sneaker News gives props to 5 memorable Air Trainer 1 releases as a celebration of the shoe’s 25th Anniversary. More great headlines below, so take a look and be on top of your Sneaker News game!
