weekly rewind 7 27 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 7/21   7/27

What a way to end of the month of July! A first detailed look at the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’ rejuvenated the Air Jordan category, but perhaps that was overtaken by the official start of the 2012 London Olympics. We got the opportunity to preview a ton of Olympic-driven gear like the Gold Medal Nike Basketball kicks, and Nike took it upon itself to revisit 20 of the most amazing basketball designs of the past two decades, starting with the Air Force 180. Nike SB keeps it moving with a look at next year’s St. Patty’s Day Dunk release, while the FlyKnit finally launched worldwide in a wide release of twelve distinct colorways/models. The Air Force 1 also made plenty of news, as we got a look at mid-August’s Embroidery Pack and a dope mid-top with a ‘Silver’ approach. Nike Basketball/Sportswear was also a big player this week; a first look at an ‘Invisibility Cloak’ colorway of a looming Penny V release turned heads, while a SneakerNews.com exclusive look at an all-new Hyperposite colorway heated up some computer screens. Another Foam-based model in the Zoom Rookie will release once more in the infamous ‘Galaxy’ colorway as well.

Nike Sportswear will introduce Engineered Mesh on its heritage models this Spring, starting with the Air Max 1 (trust us, it doesn’t stop there). adidas raised a few eyebrows as they introduce their own Knit-constructed running shoe, leading us to wonder just how much potential knitted uppers have not only with Nike, but across all brands. Meanwhile, Asics had us in a frenzy thanks to Ronnie Fieg’s decision to release a small crop of his Neptune Blue a tad early, while Vans’ top headlines of the week had some juicy goodness for collaboration-crazed sneakerheads. Converse and Stussy New York have something exciting up their sleeves. The Air Force 1 High grabs our attention with our own Classics Revisited this week, featuring some great collaborations and PE models of the last 10 years. Finally, Sneaker Con hits the DC area yet again for a mid-Summer event that is sure to ignite the Nation’s Capitol. More of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind for you ahead, so drop in and don’t miss a beat on all-things-sneakers!
