Sneaker Headlines July 2014

Can you believe that summer is almost over? We’ve only got one more month of this sort of perfect sneaker weather, and then it’s back to school time (for most of you). As we’re closing the books on another wild month in sneaker releases and headlines, we are again coming through with a highlight reel of sorts featuring the biggest stories that showed up across the past month.

But what else happened? In the Big Three news as far as Nike Basketball is concerned, Kobe Bryant continued his prolific run by adding another shoe. Speaking of prolificacy, there are a ton of Asics collaborations on the way. Before we spoil the whole group for you though, continue reading for the 10 Sneaker Headlines to Remember from July, 2014.
