Another week of new sneaker releases are upon us, but have you kept on pace? It may be difficult (and at times, pesky) to keep up with all the fresh releases, but that’s what the Sneaker News Weekly Buyer’s Guide is here for – to give you a quick rundown of what’s fresh out of the oven. Nike SB’s June 2011 releases just became available (that ‘Send Help’ SB Dunk Mid is looking great) as did the Grey/Neon colorway of the Air Max JR. If you’re looking for Retro trainers, this week brought in a new colorway of the Air Trainer SC II High and an OG colorway of the Air Trainer Max2 ’94. We’ve also got a quick preview of what’s hitting stores this weekend, so check out this week’s Buyer’s Guide and let us know what you’ll be copping!
