Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 11/24 – 11/30
It’s been an intense week for sneakers as we wrapped up the Black Friday releases and now head into the final month of the year. Starting off, Air Jordans made plenty of headlines with a bunch of GS 2013 offerings and a look at Carmelo’s Christmas shoes. Kobe Bryant’s eighth signature shoe launched this week, while a full detailed set of photos of the LeBronold PE surfaced. Kevin Durant’s Christmas shoe was confirmed, while Penny Hardaway’s Memphis tributes in Penny V form were revealed. Darrelle Revis’ ZR1 was unveiled this week as well, while a Barkley Foamposite model caused quite a stir in our comments section. NBA and celebrities came through with a massive NBA Feet and Celebrity Feet group, with Frank Ocean’s Supreme x SB Dunk taking center spotlight.
Japan’s atoms confirmed two Air Max 1 collaborations for January, while a slew of other Air Max VNTG releases were unveiled. Several collaborations, like Packer Shoes’ second Question attempt, Big Sean’s ‘Detroit Player’, Lil’ Wayne’s Supra S1W, DQM’s Vans Woven Pack, and DJ Mars’ New Balance 574 Custom made some nice headlines. Air Force 1s got plenty of shine again, with a detailed look at Rasheed Wallace’s Air Force 1 High PE and a full preview of mid-December releases. Custom kicks were a great feature as well, with a dope ‘Walking on Mars’ custom of the Foamposite getting a lot of attention. Finally, Sneaker News looked back at five Nike SB Dunk Lows from 2004 for Classics Revisited. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind in its entirety is just below, so take a look and be on top of your Sneaker News game!
