Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 12/28 – 1/3
Happy New Year, Sneaker News readers! The fun doesn’t stop because in just a few short days, 2014 has proven to be an eventful one. This past week, we caught you up on Sneaker News SELECT and the Readers Choice Poll, but as we stated before, there’s so much more to look forward to like the LeBron 11 “Black History Month”, the Air Jordan 6 “Infrared 23″, and the KD 6 “Aunt Pearl”. While Kobe rehabs his knee, we got another look at the exciting Kobe 9 Elite “Masterpiece” while gearing up for the release of the Prelude V. Nike Sportswear introduced three renditions of the Air Max 90 – the ICE, Lunar, and Jacquard, while SB prepared for the debut of the One Shot in a slew of colorways.
NBA Feet was yet again an exciting category, with Melo rocking his new signature, LeBron whipping out yet another PE, and the rest of the NBA sneakerheads doing their thing. Macklemore owned the headlines when he threw his Red Yeezy 2 into the NYE crowds, although a group of Oregon Ducks doing the dougie in their AJVs was worth a look. Reebok officially unveiled the Kamikaze 1, while adidas showed us the Rose 4.5 in six great colorways. Jeremy Lin’s move from Nike to adidas obviously made less noise than Kanye’s move did, although Lin’s marketability still remains high on a global scale. To begin the year, we jotted down fourteen headlines and predictions for 2014, touching on a number of happenings that may very well go down this year. The first Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is here for you, so click below and strap in for another great year of sneaker releases!
