This week’s most significant story was bigger than sneakers. It was Colin Kaepernick and Nike going public with their Just Do It ad campaign that has been met with considerable controversy, with detractors throwing out and burning their Nikes and supporters showing their appreciation and gratitude in waves. On top of the now-iconic billboard, Nike created a two-minute video narrated by Kaep featuring athletes the likes of Serena Williams, LeBron James, and Shaquem Griffin. In other Nike news, the LeBron 16 was officially announced by the Swoosh Brand with a What The and a Fresh Bred colorway on the way, and Fear Of God frontman Jerry Lorenzo revealed his first official Nike sneaker. For adidas, their long awaited collaboration with Dragon Ball Z was officially announced with release information surrounding all seven shoes as part of the collection, and the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 restock store list has surfaced.
