The dust settled on the massive event that was the Nike Air Yeezy 2 release, with varying spots around the globe taking a different approach to bringing the much anticipated sneakers to their customers. Once they did arrive (Kim Kardashian got hers) we gave you a side by side comparison of the 1 and the 2, taking a look at the build up and reception of both. That wasn’t the only big event over the weekend, as the 2012 NBA Finals got underway with LeBron and KD both putting their excellence (and excellent sneakers) on display for the world to see. If old school basketball sneaks are more your thing though the Air Jordan category certainly saw some awesome news this week, with a gang of confirmed retro releases for the early part of 2013 that should have your mouth watering. Customizers went crazy painting their kicks up, we got an early sneak peek at what the KD and SB lines will look like in the future, and even showed you what the Nike Zoom Kobe VII still has left in the tank.

The next camo equipped Nike Air Force 1 gets an oddball release date (Sunday anyone?) and Derrelle Revis gets what looks to be his own signature shoe. Speaking of superstars getting their own shoes the Lil Wayne x Supra collab has been officially confirmed. The Three Stripes made some noise with their unorthodox models, from the T-Mac retro the the bonkers Jeremy Scott creations. Trainer makers continue to collaborate with specialty shops around the world, with more shots from the Solebox x Asics project popping up and a big reveal on Urban Outfitters’ team up with New Balance. Lastly we kept one Swooshed up classic in our sights all week-the Nike Air Foamposite Pro, paying tribute to the model by running down some of the favorite and forgotten colorways of the past. We’ve got all that and more tucked away right after the jump so come with us to check out the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind to make sure you’re up to date on all of it.
