weekly rewind 8 17 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 8/11   8/17

It was another eventful week here on Sneaker News, starting with Team USA rising triumphantly above all nations to bring home basketball gold. Chris Paul gave us a look at a special Gold PE of the Air Jordan VII, but that wasn’t all the Air Jordan news as we caught a glimpse of the 2013 Air Jordan XIII ‘Bred’ and news of a potential split between JB and Wade stirred some debate. LeBron James, one of the stars of Team USA, was a trending topic as we caught a full-throttle viewing of the upcoming LeBron X in a variety of colors. Foamposite mania hit again, with a first look at the ‘ParaNorman’, a Summer 2013 release update, and two outstanding new Air Max Hyperposite colorways. Kevin Durant revealed the KD V during an NBA 2K13 commercial shoot, giving us a first real-life look at the upcoming shoes. Air Force 1′s continue the heavy 2012 push with yet another Year of the Dragon edition as well as a ‘Gold Medal’ variety.

The Ewing 33 Hi finally has an official release date, while some more Reebok Question samples and collabs were previewed. Custom sneakers were again a popular subject thanks to Revive’s Air Max “What The 1″, while Air Jordan PEs/OGs/Samples like the original Bordeaux from the All-Star Game (yes, the exact pair MJ wore) popped up for sale. The upcoming Air Force 180 High popped up in multiple angles of the OG colorway, while the original patent drawings from the Nike Air Max bag provided an interesting retrospective on the revolutionary technology. Celebrities like Kanye West and Teyana Taylor were popular reads, as was a list of 50 of the most influential individuals in sneaker history compiled by Jeff Staple. Finally, the Air Max 1 gets another spin as we featured five classic models for Classics Revisited. More of Weekly Rewind below, so take a look and be on top of your Sneaker News game!
