Before you look forward to your weekend of sneaker purchasing, take a moment with us to look back on what happened in the sneaker world over the past week. The Nike Hyperdunk 2014 at last arrived, but not before our retrospective look at the history of the awesome line. On the NSW side there were a few shakeups: Black Suede Foams got a release date and some “Moon Landing” Lunar90s showed up. Elsewhere, the Asics retro range stayed hot with new collab news, a full flashy Air Jordan 13 showed up, and those NIKEiD Kobe 9 Elite Lows made their way into the hands of customers. Check all that out in this edition of the Sneaker News Weekly Rewind after the break.
