Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 12/7 – 12/13
We’re nearing the end of December, but the headlines keep rolling in! We got a first look at an Air Jordan 6 “Toro” colorway – one of several 2014 releases that we caught a glimpse of. Nike officially unveiled the 2013 Christmas Pack, with the KD, LeBron, and Kobe represented well. Another look at Oregon Foams caught readers by surprise, while a clean new colorway of the Flightposite Exposed coerced detractors to the altered classic. Jordan Brand officially unveiled Carmelo’s 10th signature shoe, which releases on the same day of the Melo 1.5 bringback (a shoe he’s been steadily balling in – more to see in NBA Feet).
Nike Sportswear has a leather version of its Sneakerboots set on the way, while a bunch of Nike SB Dunks began to hit stores. Acid Denim Wash is hitting the Air Force 1 Low and High. Kobe Retros are back – and we’re not talking the Prelude Pack; adidas is bringing back The KOBE later this month. Even more Ewing colorways are becoming available – the latest set being labeled the Euro Collection. Sneaker Freaker welcomed the Sharkbait edition of its Puma Blaze of Glory (it was originally a F&F drop back in ’08). Sneaker News Select finished off the year with three great stories including the second Packer Shoes x Kamikaze II, BAIT’s “Basics Program”, and a holiday-inspired adidas drop. Weekly Rewind is available in completion below, so take a look and enjoy the weekend!
