Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 2/8 – 2/14
Nike finally released the Red October Yeezy 2s last Sunday, surprising everyone and anyone who was leisurely browsing through social media. All-Star Weekend is here, and that means one of the biggest weekend in sneaker releases. We brought you an exclusive look at some interesting set-ups by Jordan Brand like the Jordan Future and Flight Flex. Nike has some special build-outs ready as well, but the 3 Elite LeBron 11s might’ve distracted you a bit. Foamposites are going the Gold route with help from Safari print, while the Lunar Force 1 is next to get the Liquid Metal treatment. Some new Camo-based Air Max 1s are hitting soon, with one version being exclusive to Berlin with just 50 pairs available.
adidas brought out the Crazy 8 colorway inspired by the Kareem Blueprint, while Rick Ross’ mended relationship with Reebok takes form in a Shaq Attaq collaboration. The 1600 model is included in the New Balance Barbershop Pack, while Asics comes correct with the “Aztec” version of the GLIII and Epirus. Fila is back in the mix with the Kevin Johnson model, and Vans presents the latest from the LXVI collection. Sneaker News recounted all of Kanye’s sneaker collaborations, the evolution of the Air Max 90 “Infrared”, and the unique materials presented on Air Jordan shoes. Finally Sneaker News Select sat down with Nicky Diamonds to talk Dunks and much more. If you need to get caught up in the world of sneakers, look no further because Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is here!
