Across the last couple of years, Jordan Brand’s output of Retro Air Jordan releases is one that has been littered with rather basic colorways with the purpose of telling a unique story. The Air Jordan 9 “Kilroy Pack” reminded us of Michael Jordan’s fictional alter ego, the Air Jordan 5 “Bel Air” had us reminiscing over some classic on-screen sneaker appearances of the 90s, and the various “Fear Pack” releases echoed a tagline from an MJ-featuring commercial of old. This story-telling initiative is one that originates as far back as 2000 with the original Air Jordan 5 “Laney”, at the start of the long-forgotten era when the majority of the OG Jordans were yet to be re-released, most of whatever hit stores remained on shelves for some time, and when the disappearance of Nike Air branding was something to merely shrug at.

weekly rewind 10 25 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/19   10/25

Another busy week in sneakers fell on our laps as we approach the final week of October – inching ever so closer to the big Black Friday and Christmas releases. In Jordan news, a great event at the Nike Vault highlighted Chris Paul’s personal Air Jordan collection. On the other coast, the LeBron news was on point as always, as an official unveiling of the “Forging Iron” and some detailed shots of the “Carbon Fiber” and “Miami vs. Akron” gave us a better idea of the upcoming releases. Nike unveiled the “Away” rendition of the KD 6, while NIKEiD opened up a simple yet effection option for the Kobe 8. Foams were a hit as always thanks to the release date on the Safari joints, while NSW kept itself in the loop with the Pendleton collaboration in the N7 capsule and the Penny Hardaway AF1s. More Country Camo Air Max joints revealed themselves, while a big Nike SB collab finally released.

Celebs and the NBA were a big headline yet again thanks to Cam’ron’s appearance in some upcoming ‘Boks and Demar DeRozan rocking some unreleased Jordan Retros. Ewing’s got a great line-up for November, as does Reebok, with a few collaborative releases on the way. adidas unveiled one of the best D Rose colorways ever – a “Boardwalk” edition that celebrates Rose’s triumphant comeback and the arduous rehab that he went through in Southern California. New Balance unexpectedly dropped some Made in USA 576s, while Vans and UBIQ showed us their collaboration inspired by a Japanese tattoo shop. Sneaker News Select came through again with a look at a sick Air Force 1 collection and more, while custom kicks were again a big topic of chat. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is ready for you below, so take a look and get caught up in the last seven days of Sneaker News!

That’s pretty much a solid appetizer for what’s to come in what’s shaping up to be the most action-packed NBA season of sneakers, and we can confidently say that nobody in the NBA is safe from guarding someone with unexpected heat.
