August 2, 2013 BY John Kim
August is here (time flies…) and Sneaker News is ready to tackle the new month of sick releases. Starting off, we wrapped up the entire month in shoes so you can plan out your expenditures. Jordan Brand updated all of its August drops, while previews of upcoming Bel Air and Oreo Air Jordan Vs had us excited for the end of the year. SN Select came through with four amazing features covering adidas, Asics, Jordan, and sneaker collections, while Foamposite headlines rolled through as we caught a detailed look at the Asteroid and Safari Foams. Celebs were doing their thing as well, with Bow Wow rocking Reeboks early yet again. The Kobe 8 continues to be a massive hit as a Yellow/Red colorway surfaced, while the N7 KD 6 displayed some clever use of reflective material.
Nike Sportswear came through with a bevy of headlines, led by the Air 180 Camo, Air Max 90 Tape “Infrared”, and another Size? collaboration. Nike SB finally unveiled Brian Anderson’s Project BA, while Vans celebrated 10 years of its Vault line with a great event in NYC. adidas Originals has some great things in the works, like the 9000 OG and another Teyana Taylor team-up, while Asics completed its latest Ronnie Fieg release. PEs were a big topic as well with Eddie Jones, Ray Allen, and Carmelo Anthony joining the mix. There’s more to see, of course, so check out Sneaker News Weekly Rewind in full below and stay tuned for more of the best sneaker news coverage on the planet!
