2011 has arrived, which for many of you may signify a new beginning of sorts. Of course, Sneaker News never rests when it comes to bringing you round-the-clock news from the world of kicks, and the big news from just the first week of the year was a great introduction to what’s shaping up to be a huge year. We started it off by revealing the winners from the Sneaker News Reader’s Choice Poll and the Make Your Own Top 10 feature. Going back to the daily news topics was a first detailed look of the Air Jordan 2011 and another Air Jordan V Retro colorway. LeBron James had some notable news, as we got a look at the All-Star colorway of the LeBron 8 V/2. Nike SB had another strong week as Sneaker News brought you a look at some great upcoming releases, focusing on the almighty Nike SB Dunk.
So, what to cop this Spring? Sneaker News provided solid release info for two big Foamposite One releases of the first quarter. Griffey fans have more to look forward to with the release of the OG Mariner teal colorway and the debut of the Air Max JR. The Air Max Penny 1 is also dropping very soon in a few new colorways as well – one in particular being part of the House-of-Hoops exclusive ‘Highlighter Pack’. Another ‘Pack’ that caught our attention was Mayor’s Air Force 1 ‘Made to Order’ Pack, which holds an estimated value of $28,000. Hiroshi Fujiwara, under the undercover experiment label, has collaborated with Nike once again in an exciting Sportswear partnership. We’ve got kicks for the infants too, as we gave you a detailed viewing of some baby socks taking after some legendary Jordans and Air Maxes. Sneaker News also unveiled part IX of the Michael Jordan Through The Years feature, and unveiled our latest Sneaker News Giveaway – the Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’. Kick off the new year on the right foot by checking out the first Sneaker News Weekly Rewind of the new year!
