All-Star Weekend came to a close, and of Sneaker News gave you all the timely recaps of all the games and the Air Jordan XX8 special colorways that were spotted over the weekend. A first look at the Air Jordan IV in ‘Red Suede’ (although not really suede) fell upon us, while a price-drop of the LeBron X ‘Cork’ definitely pleased a number of customers. Nike Basketball continues to impress as we get a look at a rather vibrant colorway of the Kobe 8 and more details on the ‘Hulk’ KD V.
Reebok and Shaq dominated Project LV with an official announcement, while adidas Originals and its roster of celebrity endorsers kept us entertained – with an interview with A$AP Rocky giving us some insight into the mind of the Harlem-based rapper. Some ‘Snakeskin’ colorways of two Reebok Iverson models surfaced, D-Wade’s Li-Ning Way of Wade was a surprise hit with the All-Star and ‘Chicago’ PE, and Vans prepares for the warmer months with some more Spring arrivals. Michael Jordan and the sports media world celebrated his 50th birthday, while we took some time to search for some rare finds on eBay. Check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind in its entirety below and get caught up with the best sneaker news site out there!
