Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/13 – 10/19
Kicking things off for Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is a nice crop from Jordan Brand, like the Air Jordan IV ‘Terror Squad’ PE that resembles the Eminem version. Nike Basketball unveiled the LeBron X ‘Cork’ and hinted at a premium-level collection of Nike Basketball kicks. A Kobe 8 sample stirred up some discussion, as did the DMV-inspired I-95 Posite Max. NBA Feet came back in full force with two great recaps over the last week, and the collection of sneaker sightings did not disappoint. A first look at the Air Huarache Retro for 2013 was presented, as was a more advanced running model in the Lunar Flyknit One. A collection of NBA-inspired Bespokes provided some nice visuals, as did the ‘Presidential’ Edition inspired by the actual Air Force One aircraft and the crazy graphic-printed CMFT edition.
The Air Force 180 Mid continues to titillate us with a sick rollout of colorways, while Nike SB headlines kept it relevant with some new Koston and Janoski releases. A first look at some 2013 Air Max releases like the EM-built Sunset Pack and the 2013 flagship sparked some more discussion regarding the direction of Air Max as well. Under Armour unveiled its Fall 2012 Basketball models in a Media Event this week, unveiling the unique Micro G Charge BB and the Spine BB. Custom sneakers continued to go strong with one of the biggest names in the game coming through with a familiar Yeezy 2. Finally, Sneaker News focused on the early Nike SB Dunk monster, pointing out five amazing Lows from 2005. All the best and latest in sneakers is just ahead, so check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind and be on your A-game!
