Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 6/29 – 7/5
While the entire nation was celebrating the biggest national holiday of the year, Sneaker News kept offering up some more sneaker headlines as we began the first month of the Fall 2013 season. We started with a thorough preview of the July 2013 Sneaker Releases, then continued with more Nike KD VI coverage, a look at two new Kobe 8 colorways, and some notable Reebok Retro releases in the Big Hurt and Blacktop II. Nike SB mad a ton of waves thanks to the upcoming Janoski previews and the release of the P-Rod 7, while Flyknit kept us intrigued with the Max Air and Free-soled varieties. Nike Sportswear had another big week as we saw the Solarsoft Moccasin get the trendy Floral treatment.
adidas and D Rose caught our attention with the Jeremy Scott collaboration and previews of the Rose 4.5, while New Balance got in the MLB All-Star scene with some nice Custom options for this month. Vans did a nice Pack-style collab with Alien Workshop, while an early sample of the CNCPTS x Gel Lyte III had us wondering about a release date (still not convifmed). Sneaker Con hit Miami this weekend, offering up the first round of availability of Li-Ning Way of Wades. Custom sneakers made a big splash as usual, and the Air Jordan PE/Sample collection spotted at an event out in Asia had readers flipping through. More of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind awaits you below, so take a look and stay tuned for more!
