Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 9/28 – 10/4
October is here to stay. So is your favorite feed of daily Sneaker News. So is your week-ending recap of all the most pertinent shoe stories that popped up since we last did this dance. You ready? Nike finally pulled the veil off of their 2013 Doernbecher collection, an exciting group featuring Foamposites, Jordans, and more. We took you back into the realm of the Jordan Brand preview with a look at a strange “Nike Air” sporting Jordan III sample. China made us jealous with their launch of the LeBron 11, something we’ve still gotta wait another week for. Supreme’s latest collab with Nike touched down, selling out in an instant despite their rule-breaking non-SB nature (Oh and don’t forget the full rundown we gave you on the history between those two entities). Concepts cooked up another New Balance 998, this one exclusive to their Boston shop, and Sneaker News showed you more angles of the shoe than anyone else on the web.
Some of Vans’ classics disappeared thanks to a digi camo application, while others stood out with their Bruce Lee tribute. The Nike Roshe Run showed us what it’s got going on in 2014, hint: it doesn’t involve laces. Custom creators used pigeons, planes, Pablo Escobar, and more for inspiration. Extra Butter let the
snake cat out of the bag on their Asics collab, one that will apparently be launching at a brand new Manhattan location for the shop. Reebok threw a glow in the dark application on their Kamikaze II, meanwhile adidas got in touch with Size? to light up some of their classic runners. Get with us after the click for a full rundown on each of these items and don’t forget to tune in next week should you miss any of up to date headlings on the goings on in the sneakerhead world.
