Is this the biggest Air Jordan release weekend of all-time? Breds and Thunders hit stores on consecutive days, but Sneaker News kept you on your game with future Air Jordan release coming as soon as January 1st. Nike Basketball unveiled the ‘Christmas’ Collection while we got a look a slew of new KD colorways and Kobe 8 iDs. A second camo-based Foamposite looks to be hitting stores in 2013, perhaps as a ‘Pack’ with the Fighter Jet (a shoe that Rajon Rondo unveiled in this week’s jam-packed NBA Feet). Other notable on-feet sightings included Ewing in Ewings, Kim K in Flyknits, and Wale in some flashy adidas retros. The Air Force 1 newswire continues to stay hot with the Lunar Force 1 ‘City Pack’ and the snake-uppered joints. Another major headline in the Retro category was the Air Max 2 Strong in a ‘Suns’ colorway.
This was a big week for other brands as well, as adidas unveiled the 2013 ZX Pack and some Opening Ceremony partnerships. Reebok’s upcoming New Year’s Eve release of the Question will cap off a historic year for Reebok in the 21st Century. New Balance comes through with more camo as Fingercroxx and Ball and Buck put forth more personal designs. Vans hooks up with Tyler the Creator of the Odd Future collective, while custom sneakers are highlighted by a sweet Air Jordan X inspired by a 90’s cult-smash sitcom. Sneaker Con opens up its 2013 tour with a first-ever stop in Atlanta, arriving on January 5th. Check out the complete Sneaker News Weekly Rewind, and enjoy this final weekend of shopping before Christmas arrives on Tuesday!
