Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 8/18 – 8/24

Weekly Rewind 8 24 Summary

As we push closer to the official re-start of school for students everywhere, the Sneaker News headlines only seem to be getting hotter and hotter! First off, Carmelo Anthony flexed his Jordan Brand connections as he flaunted three sick PE colorways of the Air Jordan IV. The Air Jordan XII got some extra love this week with our special feature on PEs, which included Ray Allen, Gary Payton, and some other players you might’ve never known had their very own pair. The LeBron X maintains its spot in the headlines as we get a first look at the China/Jade colorway, while sports media outlets begin to debate the $300+ Nike LeBron shoe. The ‘Pearlized Pink’ Foamposites finally get a release date (Black Friday, y’all), the Zoom Kobe VIII story begins to slowly unfold, and Nike SB brings back the Challenge Court in a great video with Nike SB rider Gino Iannucci and Nike Tennis legend John McEnroe. Gino’s fellow Action Sports athlete Danny Kass copped a couple of Bespokes this week, while the ‘Gold Medal’ Air Force 1 Low was unveiled as the next installment of the AF1-XXX Collection.

One of the biggest events of the year for streetwear and kicks went down this week in Vegas, and Sneaker News brought you all the relevant news from Reebok and Supra as well, like the return of the ES22 and Kamikaze II, and a first look at Lil’ Wayne’s signature shoe. The NBA Season is nearing a start as the 2012 Rookies dressed up for Media Day 2012. The Ewing 33 Hi has been a popular pick with celebrities as Pusha T rocked both late-August releases during his live performance, while Sneaker News took a look back at Derrick Rose’s sneaker history. Vans makes some noise with an incredible advertisement, the Reebok Question continues to gain steam with Iverson-centric releases, and a great video on ‘sneaker collectors’ rings a familiar bell. Finally, collaborations were in focus for Classics Revisited, as we take a look back at amazing sneaker creations from names like Stash, Stussy, and ESPO. More of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is just ahead, so take a look!
