A lot of sneaker news happens each day, so it's hard to sift through all of it and shake out the clutter. Your Twitter feed is likely full of Air Jordans releases dates and sneakers on sale, but what's worth paying attention to? Beyond that, there are daily industry rumbles that may affect the athletic footwear world as a whole. Oh, and memes, Vines, and other shenanigans, too. Here's what you need to know.
"The joint release centers around the reintroduction of the V.7000 silhouette, which will be hitting shelves for the very first time since 1990. Both sneakers will be releasing together on Friday, October 23 at 11 a.m. EST and are priced at $200 apiece. They'll be available from both Kith locations and Slam Jam Milan, as well as both store's respective web shops. Take a closer look at this three-way collaboration below."
"First reported by Australian publication The Advertiser, there are quite a few Manchester United supporters who were unhappy with the sneaker for one simple reason: The Three Stripes are blue and not red."
"Posted on his Instagram, Nike Creative Director Mark Smith shared an image of a pair of unreleased Air Yeezys with the caption, "yardwork Sunday." For Yeezy fans and diehard collectors, the image of the sullied pair of Yeezys will undoubtedly break hearts and bring up questions of "why?" and "OMG" reactions. The only answer to that is because he can and he chose to. Smith was one of the individuals responsible for bringing the world the Yeezys so he undoubtedly owns pairs that many of us consider grails. He just decided to get one of his pairs a little dirty."
"Yesterday evening, he shared the above image without a caption, allowing the kicks to do the talking. Due to the lighting, it's hard to identify every single pair here, but as expected, he's got some serious heat. There's the Saint Laurent Skate Lace-Up and Signature Court Classic homages to the Vans Authentic and Jordan 1, respectively, along with some dope Margielas, "Pirate Black" Yeezy Boost 350s, and a number of Vans."
"With just days to go until the start of the 2015-16 NBA regular season, many eyes are already fixated on second overall draft pick D'Angelo Russell. The Lakers rookie, who was quickly scooped up by Nike over the summer, recently bumped into TMZ and was asked if he's planning to "go the Stephon Marbury route" and sell his sneakers for $15 a pop when he gets a multi-million dollar shoe deal."
