Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/25 – 5/31
What a mighty week it’s been! An insane amount of headlines began at the start of Memorial Day Weekend and didn’t end until right this moment, so let’s get a quick review going. An internal Nike source confirmed a third release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 for later this year, while a detailed viewing of the Air Jordan V “Elephant” brought in some interesting comments from our readers. Nike Basketball was huge once again, with the release of the MVP LeBrons, a first look at the “Team Orange” Nike KD VI, and a new NSW Kobe 8 colorway. A first detailed look at the “Weatherman” Foamposites caused a stir, while a ton of Nike Sportswear Air Max releases like the Air Max 90 Mid and Size? x Nike’s Urban Safari Pack get the runner fans happy. Air Force 1s enjoyed some nice headlines thanks to the release of the Lunar Force 1 “Sheed”, while a duet of Baltimore-inspired Highs had the trailblazing city proud.
In more Retro news, we got a first look at a Grey/Orange colorway of the Zoom Flight ’98, while a Nike Dunk classic from a decade ago was confirmed for a re-issue later in June. Nike SB enjoyed some high praise with the “Orange Canvas” leading the way. We caught some teasers of Reebok’s future collaborations with Sneakersnstuff, while a first look at the adidas Crazy Light 3 had hoop fans intrigued. A ton of previews of New Balance’s July 2013 footwear arrived, as did some upcoming Vans projects, like another Supreme collab. A release date for the St. Alfred x Asics Gel Lyte III was provided amidst a slew of new colorways for later this year, and one of the craziest eBay auctions with all five Yeezy releases had bidders in the frenzy. Finally, we brought you a nice outline of June 2013 footwear, which will be continually updated throughout June.
