The temperature continues to rise, but here’s a set of new sneaker releases to go blow for blow with the increasing heat. The biggest release of the past week is certainly the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Sprite’, but don’t overlook the three new Air Jordan 2011s or the two new Fly Wades. The adidas Crazy Light also hit stores, as did a Crazy Light version of the adidas Originals Forum Mid. B-ball kicks not your thing? Vans released a ton of new kicks from its classics and OTW collection, and a new P-Rod IV High in a tonal curry brown might make you look twice. Check out the entire Sneaker News Weekly Buyer’s Guide and let us know if you plan on copping any!
