Weekly Rewind: 10/23 – 10/29

It was another heat-filled week in the world of sneakers, so let’s get right down to it! LeBron James made a debut in three different mediums, as a new commercial aired, his new kicks dropped, and he made his first regular season appearance in a Miami jersey. With the NBA season now running on full steam, we got a look at a nice selection of kicks around the league, with special focus on Kobe Bryant’s ’5 Rings’ and Hyperfuse PEs. Going back to the kicks, Sneaker News showed you an all-new colorway of the LeBron 8 as well as some great upcoming Jordan Brand releases. The bright spot of the Jordan Brand category was Tinker Hatfield’s Air Jordan XX3 PE, which he wore during an interview session during the Sole Collector x Jordan CMFT Max 11 release out West. Also spotted at the event was a LeBron x Air Max hybrid that was never seen before.

On the non-basketball side of things, Cristiano Ronaldo’s signature football boot as well as the all-new Nike x Manny Pacquiao collection were revealed, which featured two colorways of the Trainer 1.2. Speaking of Trainers, release info for the remaining seven colorways of the Huarache TR Mid NCAA Pro Combat Pack provided an exclusive look at upcoming Air Trainer Huarache releases. Nike SB provided some big breaking news, as the unreleased SB Dunk Low ‘Loon’ Sample from years ago is now set for a Quickstrike release next month. And finally, West NYC, one the most well-known sneaker shops in the world, collaborated with Nike Running in a Friends and Family collection of footwear and apparel. Via Sneaker News
