What a great weekend it was! As America celebrated its independence, sneaker heads nationwide finally copped the much-anticipated Air Jordan V ‘USA’. But that release has come and gone, and Sneaker News has another handful of great sneaker selections that are ready to be stocked in your closet. Starting off, Jordan Brand dropped five (yes, five) colorways of the all new Air Jordan 2011 Q-Flight, which featured built-in Hyperfuse. Other notables included the Nike N7 Air Max Destiny basketball shoe, which we all can see has a very ‘South Beach’ theme going on. The Kobe Bryant x Nike SB Zoom Koston 1 hit select retailers, with eBay likely being the lone viable option, and even Vans got in on the summer fun with three new summer-picnic inspired releases. Check out the rest of this week’s big releases and let us know which is your favorite from this installment of Sneaker News Weekly Buyer’s Guide.
