March 8, 2013 BY John Kim
There simply is no shortage of Sneaker News because we were hit with another big week of sneaker headlines from every brand and label out there. Starting things off with Jordans, a first look at the upcoming Air Jordan V ‘Laney’ was presented to us, while a clean brown suede version of the Nike LeBron X hinted at another NSW-style release. The Easter KD V continues to unravel as we were provided with a first multi-angle look at the shoes, while two Nike Basketball Retro releases in the Hyperflight and Zoom Flight ’98 finally revealed themselves. Nike SB unveiled the release dates for the Koston 2, while a first look at the high-top P-Rod 7 impressed many.
Celebrity and NBA Feet were both big categories, with Nate Robinson breaking out the Yeezy 2s and an old find of Ichiro in OG Carmines definitely raised eyebrows. A slew of unreleased Revis samples definitely made us wanting more of the impressive Trainer, while the Air Max 2013 pays tribute to four original Air Max colorways. Two more Ewing 33 Hi colorways have release dates, while adidas kept it contemporary with the unveiling of the adidas CrazyQuick line during a media event this week. Vans collaborations were a hot topic, while GR New Balances continued to impress without the need for any superfluous add-ons. The discussion of sneaker reselling was put into the spotlight by a major magazine, while sneaker photography – another booming hobby in the sneaker community – was put in focus by the Sneaker News staff. There’s plenty more to see in the customs and rare eBay finds category, so enjoy the rest of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below.
