Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 1/12 – 1/18
If this week’s massive list of headlines is any indication as to how big 2013 is going to be, then this year might be the greatest year in sneakers…ever. In Air Jordan news, we got confirmation of a bunch of upcoming releases, with three Holiday 2013 drops including an all-new Air Jordan XI. Nike unveiled the 2013 BHM Collection, which focused on a sick grey/orange graphic on the three signs as well as the Lunar Force 1. The LeBron X Low has a release date already, but keep your eye on the Kobe 8 ‘Python’, which drops in early February. Foamposite news was huge as well, with the all-white joints getting a release date and the Barkley Posite Max now targeted for early/mid March. Nike SB hits us with a Quickstrike release for February inspired by the first black skater to grace the cover of the heralded Thrasher magazine, while Tyler, the Creator’s collab with Vans gets unveiled at a show in Berlin.
NBA Feet was highlighted by Russell Westbrook’s Air Jordan III PE, while LeBron set an NBA record in a special edition of his own. Jay-Z jumps on the Reebok bandwagon by rocking the Kamikaze II, while Tyga’s shoe with the brand gets more in-depth. Fila is getting back to the game with a sick Stackhouse Camo PE as well. Plenty of Air Max runners are on the way in EM and OG fashion, while other Retro runners from Asics, New Balance, and adidas get plenty of good headlines. A sick Air Jordan XIII ‘Cork’ teaser sends Jordan/LeBron fans in a frenzy, while a set of PEs made for some NBA icons reveal even more of the Air Jordan PE history. There’s plenty more to see below so check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below for the full weekly coverage of sneakers!
