Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 6/22 – 6/28
What a great week it’s been for Sneaker News. Firm release info (sorta) of the Red Yeezy 2s are here, the Air Jordan Fear Pack was revealed, and the Nike KD VI was unveiled to select media in KD’s hometown of Seat Pleasant, MD. There was more to see though, with LeBron’s NSW model getting a new colorway, KD debuting his own NSW model, and Nike Sportswear going Camo crazy with the Air Max Camo Pack. Air Force 1s were impressive with the Washed Denim look, while the upcoming Thermal and Weatherman joints had Foam fans foaming at the mouth.
Plenty to see from other brands as well, with adidas unveiling the T-ZX Runner AMR, New Balance hooking up with UBIQ for a July 4th-themed release, and Reebok teaming up with heavy-hitter Solebox for a dope Omni Zone. Kobe Bryant spent some of his off-season rehab time in Brazil, while LeBron and Wade were busy celebrating their second consecutive Championship out in Miami. Customs were a big one as well, with the Air Jordan II x Yeezy hybrid turning heads, while the Air Jordan VII sample of the Golden Moments variety had interested minds talking. There’s more to see of course, so check Sneaker News Weekly Rewind below for the direct effect.
