Think Sneaker News is slowing down after Black Friday? December 2010 is going to be a huge month for sneaker releases and hot topics and we’ve already kept you on top of everything that went down this week. We got a look at President Obama’s kicks that he wore during a game in which he got elbowed inadvertently on the lips. We also got a detailed look at the Electric Green Foamposite Pro, and ‘Electric’ is surely an understatement. Moving forward to a more contemporary shoe design, Sneaker News gave you a first peek at the Kobe VI ‘Chaos’ which featured a colorway that was less chaotic and more controlled. And in a huge week for NBA kicks, which featured the debut of a number of new signature shoes and colorway as well as a look at the Nike PEs around the league, but it was LeBron James’ Black/White LeBron 8 that he wore during his tense return to Cleveland that was tops in NBA Feet news. Of course, a ‘collaboration’ with Seth McFarlane of The Family Guy fame caught our eyes as well.
For Black Friday, the big release was the Air Jordan XIII Flint, so Sneaker News showed you a nice comparison of the three released versions. Also getting some looks was a sweet collection of even more Air Jordan PEs from the likes of Quentin Richardson and Jared Jeffries. We also brought you an exclusive look at the next Packer Shoes x Dominique Wilkins x Reebok Pump Omni Zone, which might’ve outdone the first colorway. The beginning of a new month meant a whole new set of Nike SB footwear and apparel releases – all of which you can see in this Rewind as well. Some Air Max news popped in when we got a look at two different pairs of Air Max 95s, which ‘reversed’ a few trends. And finally, Sneaker News unveiled the fourth installment of the Michael Jordan Through The Years feature, which focused one the Air Jordan IV. It’s the first weekend of December and there’s a ton of news so stop in and check out the latest Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
