This week was another one of those where the usual sneaker-world chatter jumped up to mainstream levels thanks to the talk of Kevin Durant’s possible Nike exodus. Whether or not he’s headed to Under Armour remains to be seen, but our readers certainly had plenty to say about that. Other noteworthy items included Drake and his all-gold Jordan 3s, that pair of Nike Air Force 1s that will hit next week with a “WBF” theme, and even more collaborations for the Asics Gel Lyte V. Stay with us after the break for the latest from Sneaker News Weekly Rewind and check back in at the same time next week for another recap.
