Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 2/15 – 2/21
Another week of big sneaker stories is ready to close out, so here’s a recap of all that went down. Jordan Brand is re-introducing two-pair Packs in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro KO High “Rival Pack”, which is set to drop next month. LeBron rocks the LeBron 11 Low during All-Star Weekend, the KD 6 “Liger” and EXT “Floral” get plenty of love, and an unreleased BHM sample of the Kobe 8 kept Nike Basketball fans happy. The Nike Lil’ Penny Posite was intended to release during All-Star Weekend, but the date looks to be postponed – although a few copped their pairs. The Air Max 90 ICE is ready to hit stores, while UNDFTD announces a collaboration with Nike and two renditions of the Lunar Force 1. 510 Skateboarding’s Nike SB Dunk High is revealed to have been designed by Benny Gold, while some new Flyknit colorways are introduced in the Nike Women’s “Running DC” Collection.
Packer Shoes celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Blue Chips with a limited run of the Shaq Attaq, a detailed look at the upcoming “All-Star” adidas T-Mac 3 Retro surfaces, and New Balance introduces the “Fresh Foam” technology on their performance runners. Ewing confirms the release date for three silhouettes, while Asics got two new classic models just for the ladies. Saucony Originals has some great releases in the Grid 9000 and Shadow 5000 form, and Vans has two collaborations in the works. With 2014 being the 20th Anniversary of Air Jordan Retros, we detailed the twenty best of all-time. We also took at what OG Air Jordans have yet to re-release in Retro form. Sneaker Con was in New Orleans during All-Star Weekend, and we have a big recap just for you. Check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind for the complete rundown and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all the latest!
