The Holiday shopping season is when sneaker brands really put out their best, so with just a couple of weeks before the real onslaught of footwear releases arrive, Sneaker News continues to keep you on top of everything and anything worth keeping an eye on. First off, we gave you a quick peek at the entire Kilroy Pack and detailed 2013′s Air Jordan XIII ‘Bred’ Retro. LeBron continues to dominate the headlines with the sick ‘Crown Jewel’ colorway, a Lifestyle version of the Kobe VIII comes to light, and Durant shows off his KD V for NBA 2K13 fans. Another Nike banger is the Inneva Woven – hand-woven Free-based shoe that enhances the Woven effect by providing the ultimate true fit. Speaking on Retros – the Air Flight One is arriving yet again in OG form, as is the “Chlorophyll” Air Trainer 1.
Nike SB surprises us with a first look at the Koston 2, Flyknits will be a definite trend in 2013 with the Chukka, as will the Roshe 2013 in its re-designed glory. New Balance goes HAM with its collabs as we get a look at a sick camo-infused 574, Reebok stays true to its OGs with the release of the Pearlized Navy Questions, and Vans continues to pump out great releases under its California, Japan, Syndicate, and OTW sub-labels. Custom sneakers are a hot topic once again (like the two Air Jordan Vs), while PE joints like Ray Allen’s Celtics ‘Away’ XIII garners the right response. It was a strong week for celebrities as well, with a solid group consisting of Michael Jordan, Spike Lee, Melo, and more. Finally, the Air Jordan Low was shown some love once again in Classics Revisited. Stay on top of all of the hottest headlines below with Sneaker News Weekly Rewind!

Another rock-solid week for fans of Jordans, Nike Basketball, Ewing, Nike SB, adidas, Reebok, and more! Starting off – a release date has been confirmed for the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ and the Grape V has been confirmed for 2013. Some more Air Jordan IXs in the ‘Kilroy’ theme have also surfaced. Sneaker News broke the news of the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1, while Golden State Warrior David Lee showed off his Home and Away Hyperposites. Another look at the Zoom KD V along with some nice Nike SB Dunk releases also created some buzz, while an official launch event for the adidas Rose 3 and adidas Rose Apparel line kept the Three Stripes brand in the mix.
Reebok kept it old-school with a Ruff Ryders team-up (remember Swizz’ affiliation with the camp), while some great Asics and New Balance collaborations kept the energy around their classic runners. Celebrity Feet was abuzz thanks to Nate Robinson’s Air Yeezy 2 basketball outings and Teyana Taylor’s impressive Ewings, and a great Evolution of Nike Air feature provided a nice lesson to those unaware of the history of Nike’s most notable technology. We focused on the Air Jordan II for the PE spotlight, but an interesting Air Jordan IV sample from 2006 might’ve stolen the show. Custom kicks were also a hot topic, particularly Mache’s ‘Flux Capacitor’ Mags. Finally, adidas got some love as part of our Classics Revisited feature, as we gave some attention to some of their most memorable releases of the last decade. Weekly Rewind is ready and waiting, so click through below and get caught up with the best Sneaker News on the web.

How was your Labor Day? While you were able to relax and enjoy the day off the Sneaker News team made sure that it wasn’t a slow one in terms of your favorite footwear, keeping you updated on all the pertinent news out there for the three day weekend and well into the no-wearing-white season. The epic ShoeZeum makes its new home in Las Vegas with our guys on the ground covering the event. The LeBron X keeps poking its head up, the latest getting away from the ‘Heat’ for a moment with a chilly blue look. Elsewhere in signature sneakers Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul both get a surprise release date for their next iterations with Jordan Brand. A custom creator cuts up his pair of Air Jordan IV’s and pours milk inside them (don’t try this at home). Nike SB plants itself firmly in the headlines once again with another obvious Air Jordan-esque pair, with collaborator Brooklyn Projects whipping up a ‘Concord’ looking Dunk Low.
SoleFly out in Miami joins the rarefied air of sneaker spots to lock down a collabo with Jordan Brand, coloring up a Jordan Spiz’ike with a local Miami Hurricanes look. Celebs show up in droves to the MTV Video Music Awards, with a select few among them making some sneakerhead moves (‘Supreme’ Dunks, ‘Golden Moment’ Air Jordan VII’s, and more). Of course for the celebs we can’t forget Whoopi Goldberg, who turned heads on The View with her Foamposite selection. Bape brings their camo look back to a pair of adidas along with UNDFTD, Ronnie Fieg teases his next New Balance release, and Patrick Ewing makes sure you’re getting your bang for your buck on those Ewing 33 Hi retros. Click through for all these awesome headlines and more in this edition of the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind!

The summer closes out with a bang, as the last week of August wraps up today with plenty of promises of premium footwear just beyond the horizon. The Nike LeBron X continues to win folks over, with a couple new colorways and even a release date popping up. Other sig news arrives from the Jordan Brand front thanks in part to Carmelo Anthony, who revealed the still un-released Jordan Melo M8 Advance. And if that wasn’t tantalizing enough the retro department brought one particularly exciting preview: the first shot of next year’s Air Jordan V retro lacking the ’23′ hit that would typically steer things away from OG orientation. Oh and speaking of His Airness, we touch on another of his classic moments via our Was it The Shoes? feature.
The Nike Air Force 1′s 30th birthday carries on, seemingly caught in a ‘Foamposite’ theme at the moment as multiple more shots from that cross campus silo stew were revealed. The Nike Air Foamposite One proper is still keeping to itself just a little bit though, with a stealthy pair set to reverse the recent colorful trend just a bit. Beyond Beaverton, New Balance brings in some heavy duty tastemakers for a two-sneaker pack, Reebok continues their retro onslaught with some Shawn Kemp specials and the ever important AI models, and Vans blends with constant collaborator Taka Hayashi. Did we mention we’re giving away some exclusive Madden ’13 sneakers? Get a look at all these major headlines and more right after the jump in this edition of the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
