Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 6/15 – 6/21
What a week! LeBron James and the Heat win their second straight NBA Title, and Nike responds with the Championship Pack – a two-pair set that should be one of the most coveted items of the year. Sneaker News took it a step further and detailed all the important moments in his career and the sneakers that accompanied them. Chris Paul shares a look at the Georgetown IVs, while two OG Jays are confirmed for a return in Spring 2014. Several low-top LeBrons make news, while upcoming KD 6 colorways have people waiting for the official release of the shoe on July 3rd. The Flightposite has been under the microscope, with the “Exposed” look stirring up some discussion, while the Air Force 1 continues to intrigue with Air, Lunar, Low, and High forms. An advanced preview of Nike SB footwear from Spring 2014 gets revealed, while Flyknit keeps us hungry for more as we get a look at the Flyknit Hyperfeel. Nike B-Ball Retro news was exciting as well, as we got a look at some Spring 2014 releases of The Glove and three new colorways of Hyperflights.
Nike confirmed a re-release of five Doernbecher releases from the past, which had the comments section buzzing due to the fact that the set number is the same as the number of Jordan DBs in existence. Reebok made another weekly splash with an unveiling of the next SNS collaboration and the Classic City Series, while adidas shows us the Halfshell (it’s exactly what it sounds like). New Balance has an upcoming collab to keep an eye out for, while Fila presents to us the Grant Hill joints. Vans hooks up with Liberty for a set of Authentics, and Saucony’s team-up with Hanon keeps the brand’s name in the headlines once again. Customs were a big one with week, with the Red October joints getting recreated by Mache. Sneaker Con in Atlanta was as magnificent as ever, with noted hip-hop sneakerhead Trinidad James stopping by for some shoes. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is here again, so check it out below and stay in tune with the best sneaker news site out there!
