Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/6 – 10/12
October is in full force, so let’s get right to it: Jordan Brand presented us with an amazing collection of Air Jordan IX PEs for NFL athletes as the Kilroy Pack continues to unfold. The Christmas edition of the LeBron is finally unveiled, while Bron’s teammate D-Wade officially unveils the Li-Ning partnership. The Zoom Hyperflight will arrive in 2013 in anything but a ‘GR’ form, and KD and Kobe tighten the screws in some new sneakers during NBA Pre-season action. Hyperposites continue to trend in PE and sample form, while the Penny V releases keep chugging out – this time in ‘Tour Yellow’. Jason Kidd also gets in on the 90′s mix with four colorways of the Zoom Flight 95 ‘Career Pack’. Air Force 1s will continue to be a massive headline, and it certainly is this week thanks to the ‘Presidential’ Air Force 1 and the Lunar Force Low.
Stussy chums it up with Nike again with a sick nine-pair collection of the OMS “S&S Capsule”. More from Reebok in the form of keynote release dates as well, while Asics continues to wow the crowd with the ‘Kill Bill’ styled Gel Saga II. Summer 2013 seems to be set for Nike Sportswear as we get a peek of what’s to come two seasons from now. Vans continues to impress with its nice fabrications from their Authentic, California, and OTW capsules. A feature on sneaker stockpiles gets the readers in a frenzy, a sneak peek at the exhibits from the Nike Graphic Studio Art Show coerces some profound responses, and the best custom sneakers of the week dazzle the crowd. With basketball kicks in such high demand and popularity, Sneaker News looked at five awesome early-2000′s models for Classics Revisited. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind in its entirety is right ahead, so read up and be the most knowledgeable sneakerhead on the block.
