Top Stories Of The Week: 03/08 – 03/14
It was quite the week for Nike Sportswear. As we inch closer to celebrating Air Max Day on March 26th, we headed to Nike Headquarters to talk about the storied history of the line, how it came to be, and where Air Max is headed in the future. New Huaraches emerged, we got a look at the upcoming Nike Air Max 2016, and the Huarache line continues to build upon its own past. Elsewhere in the sneaker world, Infrared returns to the Air Jordan 6, this time on an upcoming lowtop rendition and we already have a release date for the impending Air Jordan 11 “72-10” for Holiday 2015. Check out the rest of our top stories via our latest Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below.
