Sneaker News brings you what matters. Since we’re in the March Madness mood, Sneaker News opened up the polls for the 2011 Sneaker News March Madness Tournament, throwing thirty-two OG Air Jordans in the fire in a battle for supremacy. The heat didn’t stop there, as Sneaker News gave you an inside look at the ShoeZeum, undoubtedly the greatest sneaker collection showcase in history. More Jordan news followed, with a look at a GS sample of the Air Jordan III ‘Stealth’ and a viewing othe Air Jordan 2011 Version 2. Carmelo Anthony made some notable news as he was honored in NYC with an oversized billboard, and LeBron got us excited as we brought some hints at the upcoming LeBron 9. There was plenty of NBA and NCAA action during the week, as we showed you what LeBron, Carmelo, and other big-time studs wore on the hardwood.
Outside of basketball, Sneaker News previewed some upcoming Nike SB releases, but the what truly caught our attention were two Nike Basketball retros in the Air Foamposite One in Black/Electric Green and Air Max Penny 1 in Ripstop Nylon. Going back to February, which was Black History Month, Sneaker News gave you a look at a special limited edition Black History Month box. Tomorrow, Sneaker Con NYC will open its doors for the first time in 2011, and you’d better believe it lives up to the hype. Some sad news came our way earlier this week, as the Eastern coast of Japan was ravaged by earthquake and tsunami, so we urge our readers to chip in and lend a hand. And finally, Sneaker News unveiled the seventeenth volume of Michael Jordan Through the Years, focusing on the life and times of Michael Jordan during the Air Jordan XVII. Don’t miss a beat in the world of kicks – Sneaker News Weekly Rewind has you covered.
