Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 5/4 – 5/10
One of the most anticipated sneaker releases of 2013 released this past weekend, but there’s no slowing down as another huge week of Sneaker News kept us excited for the remainder of May. A detailed look at the Air Jordan V “Melo” fell before our eyes, while news of a potential mass restock caused quite a discussion among our readers. The “Camo” colorway of the Foamposite might be headed for a release soon, while Nike Basketball created the insane “MVP” colorway of the Nike LeBron X. A detailed look at the Nike KD VI changed a few minds from negative to positive, while the “Stadium Grey”colorway of the Nike Kobe 8 established itself as one of the must-haves of the Summer. Nike SB revealed some interesting collaborations, the first catalog-shot look at the Air Max 2014 had us curious, the Air Revolution from 1987 nears a re-release, and more Griffey releases kept baseball in the sneaker loop.
Packer Shoes provided a teaser shot of its upcoming collaboration with the Kamikaze II, hinting at the 1996 NBA All-Star Game, while adidas celebrated Mark Gonzales and his 15 years of skating. New Balance gets hit with Camo on the 574 and a special Derby colorway of the 576 while being the focus of a satire by Saturday Night Live, and Marvel Comics arrives at the Vans Era once again for Fall 2013. A special feature of LeBron James’ four MVP Nike sneakers was a great throwback piece, while a thorough look at some unreleased Air Jordans had us curious about what other samples could have been created. The ShoeZeum begins to list its shoes for sale, Lil’ Wayne launches the Spectra in Miami, and custom kicks dominate the headlines once again. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is available in full below, so read on and get caught up!
