Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/12 – 5/18

Weekly Rewind 5 18

It seems like all brands are coming at full force this summer, taking advantage of the school-free zone and whipping out some of the best releases of the year. From Jordan Brand, we already know about the Golden Moments Pack, but another set of AJKO’s are poised to make a return as well. The ‘Gold Medal’ Foamposite is also one to look out for (as are the Silver/Crimson joints), and the upcoming LeBron 9 ‘MVP’ should kick the LeBron fire up a notch. The most talked-about SB Dunk Low over the last year finally released in ‘Nontourage’ form, the Air Yeezy 2 looks poised to release on June 9th, and the Air Penny line continues to go strong with a first clear look at the ‘Phoenix’ Air Penny V. His former ORL running-mate Shaq has been in the news, as Reebok confirmed a release of the Shaq Attaq and Shaqnosis for 2013.

The ‘Rings’ Pack from Asics and Bait brings another bit of Olympic flavor, while some upcoming New Balance releases have the classic-runner game on lock with some great 1500s and 991s. For the skate-friendly style, Vans came through with some notable headlines of the week, while the Air Safari Pack has a confirmed release date in Europe. Jay-Z and Kanye repeated as the top 2 Celebrity Feet features of the week, while Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics came out on top with his Air Jordan VIII PE. Finally, Sneaker News highlighted five awesome Air Max 1 releases of the past, using each night to give a special spotlight to Parra, HUF, Kid Robot, Atmos, and Ben Drury. More of Weekly Rewind is just ahead, so get caught up in the world of sneakers with a thorough weekly summary from the authority in Sneaker News!
