Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 8/30 – 9/5

While this week was a short one on account of the Labor Day holiday, it was by no means short in terms of memorable sneaker news stories. No doubt the biggest story was Kevin Durant’s re-signing with Nike, which came at a time when many had already pegged him as a lock for an Under Armour contract. The Air Jordan world was interesting as always, we have Earl Thomas and his Superbowl Jordans to thank for that. Some upcoming Nike Sportswear shoes got spoiled, Kanye West promised us the arrival of the Yeezy 3, and Just Blaze showed us the Jordans he’s bringing out for this season. See all those juicy Sneaker News stories and more after the break and stick with us for updates throughout the weekend.
