Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 8/31 – 9/6
We know the Air Jordan V “Doernbecher” was coming, but we certainly didn’t know it was coming this soon. That was perhaps the biggest story that fell this week, as the sneakers showed up with some official imagery and an around-the-corner release date. Coming in second place in the Air Jordan category for the week was the “Carmine” Air Jordan VI, a pair that will indeed be back next year with icy bottoms. LeBron’s tenth isn’t done quite yet, as evidenced by the repeat previews of the upcoming “Reptile” look. Kevin Durant continues to travel the world, this time heading out to Paris and dropping off a special NIKEiD creation of his KD 6 for his French fans. Let’s not forget that they weren’t the only ones privy to unique pairs-apparently there’s been PEs created of that same shoe for the Hillsong NYC church. Action Bronson continued to flex, and flex his New Balance connect. Rihanna rolled out in Jordans and Channing Tatum surprised us with his Vans selection.
Sneaker News Select is still the best spot for premium, exclusive, original footwear-related content on the web. We took you inside West NYC and Bodega in Boston to get the story on how their latest collab bangers came to be. In between we showed off another impressive collection, this one coming from Oregon Ducks super-fan QuacksonQuacks. Elsewhere Ronnie Fieg gave us a better glimpse at his next Asics banger, and Highs and Lows promised (For real this time) that theirs are on the way. The Nike Air Python randomly popped up on the retro schedule, the Nike Zoom Revis sequel showed its face for the firs time, and A$AP Rocky’s adidas project came into clearer view. Continue reading to get all these exciting stories and more in this edition of the Sneaker News Weekly rewind, lest you be behind on the most important footwear stories out there at the moment.
