Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/20 – 10/26
Another Oregon PE? You know it: Jordan Brand hooked up the Ducks with a sick Air Jordan IV PE. On top of that, Sneaker News got you some info for Air Jordan releases from January through May of 2013. NSW head Gentry Humphrey hinted at a possible release of ParaNormans for retail, a third Yeezy 2 colorway, and another All-Star-inspired Foamposite release. Nike Basketball had a major week with the unveiling of the KD V, a first look at two Kobe VIII colorways, and a breakdown of the Nike LeBron X. The Yeezy 2 also made a resurgence to the headlines as we were teased with the thought of a third colorway. Air Force 1s continue to impress as we wind down to the Supreme x Air Force 1 release, but a ‘Digi Camo’ version of the Lunar Force 1 was also worth noting. Nike’s Action Sports wing makes some noise with two outstanding snowboard boots, and NSW’s collaboration with atmos brings ‘glow’ back onto the scene.
adidas made some impressive headlines for two major reasons; the Rose 3 is indeed spreading out some great colorways with backstories, but it’s the battle with Nike Flyknit that raised our eyebrows. The Gel Lyte III returns front and center with Fieg’s next collaboration, as does New Balance with a nice collection of upcoming releases like the NYC Marathon Pack and the Year of the Snake. Converse goes crazy with the collaborations, while Vans makes its presence felt once again with a great Taka Hayashi-centric event in NYC. Sneaker Con is scheduled for an NYC comeback the weekend before Thanksgiving. Finally, Sneaker News took a look back at five iconic Nike Tennis models for Classics Revisited, throwing out names like Jon McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, and even Foamposite. All of Weekly Rewind is yours for the taking below, so check it out and enjoy the weekend!
