Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 2/23 – 3/1
February is officially in the books, closing out one of the biggest sneaker release months we’ve ever seen. But we’re ready to take March by the horns because there’s a lot of great shoes that have yet to release, like the Air Jordan IV in the popular Red Suede colorway (not really suede) that we previewed this week. Nike Basketball’s got some goodies coming our way like the LeBron X Low, the KD V N7, and the Easter Kobe 8, while Nike SB unleashed the SPoT x Nike SB Dunk Low this weekend. The ‘Sixers’ colorway of the Barkley Posite Max gained some steam with a nice preview of the shoes, while the Air Force 1 impressed with the five colorways of the ‘Blazer’ Pack.
Retro runner fans have a lot to be excited about – particularly with Asics dropping a ton of great shoes and New Balance coming up with some dope 999s. adidas dropped a new GLC colorway, while Reebok presented the official images of the Question and Answer IV in the Georgetown colorway. Another Staple Pigeon sneaker release is on the way, while Vans’s Classic Era Pro releases had the skate-shoe community interested. It was a big week for custom sneakers as well, as the Air Jordan VI got the ‘Area 72’ look down pat and LeBron James himself orders a pair of Mache Customs, and some Air Jordan V PEs for Q-Rich in his Knicks days had readers pondering an Air Jordan V ‘Cavs’ colorway. Check out all of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below to be up to date on all things sneakers!
