Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 1/19 – 1/25
Another mighty week of headlines dropped this week, so let’s get right to it. Nike unveiled the 2013 All-Star Pack of Basketball and NSW footwear, while Jordan unveiled the Year of the Snake Pack and the great packaging. The #XX8DaysofFlight campaign also launched, with each passing day revealing a new Black/Neon colorway of an Air Jordan Retro. A detailed gallery of the all-white Foams and the upcoming Ice Blue KD V popped us this week, as did the upcoming atmos x Air Max 1’Camo Pack’. NBA Feet was a sight to be seen as the entire league showed off their BHM kicks with style, while celebs showed a larger affinity for Reebok.
It was a major week for brands not named Nike as well. The Gel Lyte V and GT-Cool are confirmed to drop this year, while a plethora of Reebok headlines like the new Red/Silver colorway jolted our readers. adidas and Packer Shoes joined forces for a great event with Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, while New Balance previewed their Holiday season (1500s galore). Dwyane Wade gave Sneaker News an exclusive look at an upcoming Way of Wade PE, while FILA gets in the mix with some upcoming Stackhouse/Hill retros and a sick collab with the Ninja Turtles. Customs and PEs had some great headlines, like Mache’s ‘LeBronBoutin”, the Zoom Revis Yeezy, and the low-top XI PE. There’s plenty more to see so check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below!
