Another week, another selection of great sneakers to choose from. This week saw the release of the Brooklyn Projects x Nike SB Dunk High at select Nike SB accounts after the special in-store release at Brooklyn Projects, but there was plenty more of the GR variety available. A new Nike Air Max 2011 with a speckled midsole dropped, as did a ‘Retro’ of one of Tracy McGrady’s signature adidas shoes, now called the ‘Return of the Mac‘. The low-pro skate variety was big, as we got new releases from Converse Skate, Vans, and Alife.
