Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 10/9 – 10/15
The weeks have been flying by so it might be tough to keep up with all the happenings in the world of kicks, so it’s tough to find one source of information that’ll give you a summary of all that went down. Luckily for you, Sneaker News has got that down to a science, so let’s begin! In Air Jordan news, some interesting changes to the upcoming Altitude XIII were revealed, causing some interesting debate. However, the White/Cement Jordan III will return unaltered, which resulted in cheers across the board. The Air Jordan 1 Banned re-emerged, as did sample of the Sky Jordan – the Air Jordan 1’s ‘little sibling’. Last week the Doernbecher Jordan III was unveiled, so Sneaker News gave you a thorough look at the rest of the gorgeous six-pair collection.
In basketball news, the Royal Foamposite Ones popped up with a pre-order, and as we inch closer to the release of the LeBron 8 Pre-Heat, Sneaker News gave you a complete detailed look at the shoe. While LeBron will be making an appearance tomorrow at the new House of Hoops in Miami, he spent most of the week playing some pre-season ball, as Sneaker News gave you a complete look at all the NBA Pre-season kicks (with some celebs on the side). Nike SB introduced some new October releases as well some treats for 2011, and we also got a look at the Grey Perf Pack – though the three were sold separately. What isn’t being sold at all is the Solebox x adidas Then & Now Package, which featured one of the best two-pair package set-ups ever. Finally, some great sneaker-related events went down – Sneakerness in Vienna, Sneaker Pimp in LA, and the ‘Four Point Play’ at Packer Shoes in NJ, and Sneaker News provided some great recaps of all three. Of course, the biggest event will go down tomorrow, as Sneaker Con October 2010 will open its doors. Take a load off and get caught up in the world of kicks with this week’s Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
