Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/3 – 5/9
The first full week of May comes to a close tonight, and we’ve got a barrel full of sneaker updates to fill you in on. Kevin Durant was named NBA MVP, and Nike’s got a special iD graphic option in store for us. A first look at a brand-new “Red Leather” Air Jordan 6 fell before our eyes, release date and pricing for the Penny “Shooting Stars” was confirmed, and the new Lunar Janoski was officially unveiled. UBIQ’s got a sick new Asics collab in the works, as does Extra Butter with Saucony. We sat down with Sam Handy of adidas Originals to talk about ZX Flux and its potential, and we also revisited the KD 6 launch event for last June. Plenty more below if you missed out on some headlines, so check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind in full after the jump.
