May is upon us, and we’ll kicked things off with a full outline of all the sneakers releasing this month. The Air Jordan “Fire Red” retros were definitely hot topics, as was the new “Black/Mint” colorway of the Nike LeBron X EXT. Kobe Bryant’s love for soccer shines through in the Mambacurial, while a first look at the upcoming Nike KD VI had readers chiming in at a fast rate. The next Foamposite release has an Orlando vibe to it, but the rumored increase in MSRP had Foam fans in frenzy, while another basketball classic in the Nike Hyperflight resurfaced in rebuilt form with a full-length 360 Zoom Air bag. The Nike Dunk was a big category as well, with an exclusive preview of the upcoming Dunk Free causing quite a stire.

Calvin Johnson is the next athlete to join the signature athlete club with the Nike CJ81, while the “Pink Foil” sample of the Janoski had this SB powerhouse continuing its dominance. Solebox is pumping up again, while Ronnie Fieg’s latest collab called the “ECP” had Asics fans gearing up for another hyped release. The upcoming Jeremy Scott footwear previews left us wanting more, with the “Pixel” and “Dollars” Wings 2.0 serving up the eccentric styles that Jeremy Scott fans love. Saucony made some big headlines with three great must-have collaborations, while Ewing Athletics teased the next model in their Retro campaign. Custom sneakers were again a big topic, with the Black/Cement Roshes garnering some attention, while an unreleased sample colorway of an Air Jordan from ’92 had us wondering what other gems never made it to production. It’s a big week for Sneaker News Weekly Rewind, so check it out below!
