Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 7/20 – 7/26
Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is here again, recapping the best news stories of the week. SN Select brought you four great stories, while the Air Jordan enjoyed a healthy week of previews of upcoming Retro drops. LeBron’s busy in Asia, but luckily a release date for the Championship Pack fell upon us. Some new Kobe 8s and KD VIs were worth noting, as was the interesting Safari Foamposites, which are scheduled for a late 2013 release. Nike SB got some love as we got a nice look at the upcoming Project BA, while Nike Sportswear in all categories came together for a week filled with great headlines. The influence of Sheed is still here, with two great Air Force 1 Highs getting revealed over the weekend, and the new Roshe renditions continue to reveal themselves as we get a first look at the Roshe Run HYP. BAIT’s collaboration with Reebok was a major story, as was adidas’ new adios 2 and Element Refine JS silhouettes.
New Balance kicked things off with a Beauty and Youth collab around the RevLite 996, while Vans hit up Slam City Skates for a clean and simple production. A lot of great Asics releases are beginning to hit stores, with darker tones hinting at the changing of the seasons. Celebrities came through with their on-feet selection, with none other than 49ers phenom Colin Kaepernick flaunting his bedrooms filled with sneakers. Custom sneakers were a major hit this week, with a remixed Kobe VI inspired by the Yeezy 2 gaining some notoriety. Air Jordan PEs were a big one as well, all of which were formerly in the ownership of former and current New York Knicks players. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is all there below, so read through to get caught up in the world of sneakers.
