Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 4/10 – 4/16
The past seven days were all about thievery. Scene thievery, that is. Every day the sneaker world was hit with something that stole the show, like the four Sneaker News exclusive looks at upcoming Nike SBs. This week started off on an incredibly high note with another preview of the LeBron VIII, and the weekend was ended on a high note with a great side-by-side comparison of both black/red versions of the Air Jordan VI. A few celebrity sneakerheads did their thing to grab attention, as Jay-Z, A-Rod, M-Sanch (I doubt that nickname will survive) wore some notable Nikes and Jordans in the NYC scene. Ending the note with an old-school throwback was the release of the Nike Trainer 1 in the vintage box colorway. There was tons more in between, so stop in to satisfy your Sneaker News fix.
