December 17, 2010 BY John Kim
It was another massive week of Sneaker News as we begin to wind down on 2010. The hot topic of the week was the Air Jordan 2011; while images have been removed, the discussion was on rapid-fire pace as curious sneakerheads debated the design of the next shoe. Sneaker News also gave you a look at two upcoming sample colorways of Foamposite, which means the Foam-movement won’t be stopping anything soon. Also popping up this week were new colorways of both the LeBron 8 V2, Kobe VI, and Kobe VI iD options, Nike Basketball PEs, and upcoming Nike Basketball releases. Sneaker News also brought you live coverage of the Jordan CP3.IV Launch Event as well as the Nike Football Media Summit.
In other news, Sneaker News put the spotlight on a wedding with unique formal wear (hint: Jordans) in addition to usual PEs and Samples we show you. Gilbert Arenas and J.R. Smith led the charge in NBA Feet by wearing some great Air Jordans, while Ciara showed off her sneaker goodies during her album launch party in Hollywood. Another special Air Force 1 release is headed our way as a result of yet another collaboration with Medicom Toy. Rounding out the top stories of the week was Stash’s latest sneaker collaboration, a HoH-exclusive Air PR1 inspired by the original, and a detailed look at the upcoming Air Max Penny 1 in a ‘Suns’ colorway. And finally, Sneaker News launched the sixth installment of Michael Jordan Through The Years, focusing on the Air Jordan VI and Michael’s first championship. There’s a ton of hot topics floating around so check out the best of the best by reading through this week’s Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.
