rewind 9 13 Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 9/7 9/13

Another big week of sneaker releases and updates went down, starting with some Air Jordan eye-catchers like the “Shanghai Shen” V and another look at the “Steel” X. A new colorway of the LeBron 11 as well as a peek at the box packaging was made known as well, while the release of the KD VI NSW welcomed Durant to the exclusive club of NSW-stylized sig-based models. Celebrity Feet was another big category thanks to Trinidad James rocking Supreme SB Dunks and 2Chainz rocking Fire Red 3s. Nike Sportswear impressed us with the “Suede Pack” of the Air Tech Challenge II and unveiling of the Python Retro, and Nike SB came through again with more Floral Janoskis and a DJCK collaboration. Another Barkley signature shoe got an upgrade with Hyperfuse, while another mid-90′s shoe got a revamp with Glowing outsoles. Flyknit Chukkas were big news as well, with three upcoming colorways providing plenty of excitement for fans of the model.

Reebok came through with a release date for the next Attaq release, while adidas Originals celebrated the A$AP Rocky x Jeremy Scott collaboration with a party in NYC. The Concepts x New Balance “C-Note” was revealed in full, while a preview of BAIT’s “Phantom Lagoons” gave Asics followers plenty to look forward to. Saucony has some goodies coming up, like a collaboration with Packer Shoes, while Vans came through with some nice releases like the “Velvet Stars” with Supreme. The Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 was a big topic with some new colorways shown on the feet of D-Wade. The Air Jordan 3Lab5, which drops next weekend, got us thinking about the sudden overflow of elephant print on Nike shoes, while sneaker customs impressed us again with some incredible materials like ostrich and denim. SN Select jumped into four great topics like the Ewing Guard, Nike Trail Running, the beginning, middle, and end of a Bespoke, and the Margiela x Converse connection. Sneaker Con also confirmed an October date in Miami as well. Sneaker News Weekly Rewind is available in full just below, so give it a look and stay tuned for another great week of the best Sneaker News.

BRONX NEWS: Ex-ally dishes dirt on Bronx primary winner Victor Pichardo

Special election winner Victor Pichardo is not only facing charges of fraud in his victory in the race for an Assembly seat — now his former treasurer is accusing him of fiscal improprieties and fleeing to Massachusetts during the campaign to avoid being served with legal papers.

Carlos Morales, 28, blindsided his former friend and boss by emailing his gripes Thursday to the media and Pichardo, who won by only 72 votes from more than 5,200 cast.

“I feel badly for the candidates who did their part to run honestly and who did not betray the trust of those people representing them on the campaign,” Morales wrote in the stinging 800-word missive to Pichardo. “The same cannot be said about you.”

Morales said campaign staffers were paid without using proper paperwork — if at all.

“I understand my timing is late,” Morales, an unemployed accountant, told the Daily News. “The reason why I didn’t put more pressure on Victor and other members of the campaign is because I wanted to get paid.”

Pichardo denied Thursday that anything was amiss.

RELATED: BRONX ASSEMBLY SEAT UP FOR GRABS

“Mr. Morales’ allegations are part of his scheme to hold my campaign hostage and deflect attention away from his own wrongdoing,” he wrote in a statement. “My team and I have run a clean campaign.”

Morales, however, provided evidence to the contrary. For example, Pichardo skipped town in July after learning he was about to be served papers in a case challenging his questionable petition signatures — telling Morales via text message that he was out of town and “it will make sense when I get back. Fuzz is looking for me lol.”

The case was ultimately dropped.

RELATED: CUOMO OPTS AGAINST SPECIAL ELECTION FOR BRONX ASSEMBLY SEAT

Morales remains concerned because Pichardo asked him to create the campaign account for “Friends of Victor Pichardo,” as well as the corresponding bank account, in Morales’ name, he said.

“If s— hits the fan, I’m the one who has to answer to all this,” Morales said. “That’s a really big, big problem for me.”

The Assembly district, which covers Mount Hope, University Heights and the West Bronx, was up for grabs after Assemblyman Nelson Castro resigned in May for allegedly lying and secretly taping his Albany colleagues.

“Vic’s seat was vacated by someone corrupt — only to go to someone I know to be corrupt.” Morales said. “That doesn’t sit well with me.”

air jordan v doernbecher isaac arzate 00 Air Jordan V Doernbecher Isaac Arzate | Release Reminder

One of the most popular Air Jordan legacy silhouettes? Check. A premium look and feel? Check. A glow in the dark element that’s always welcome among sneaker collectors? Check. Best of all, the kicks pay tribute to 2012 Doernbecher Freestyle Program patient Isaac Arzate and his family, with all proceeds from sales of the shoes benefitting OHSU Doernbecher. And Isaac’s Nike x Doernbecher Air Jordan V are set to release tomorrow, launching at select Nike locations (through Nike Store Twitter RSVPs) and online. These instant classics feature a number of unique details that salute the shoe’s designer Isaac Arzate, who tragically passed away in April 2012. Isaac’s 9 baseball jersey number 31 basketball number appear on the left and right shoe, respectively, while Isaac’s initials, and the dates of his birth and passing, appear on the inside of the tongue. Finally, the upper features the words of a poem in black light ink that Isaac wrote just a day before is passing, and each pair comes with a flashlight to complete the glow-in-the-dark effect, inspired by Isaac’s love of video games. Check out detailed looks below.

Release Date: September 14, 2013 (Tomorrow)

Reebok Fall 2013 ATV19+

Released earlier this year, the ATV 19+ trainer is a bold new design from Reebok in conjunction with UFC fighter-turned-actor Rampage Jackson. Built to provide maximum ground contact for traction and agility on all ground surfaces, the ‘all terrain vehicle’ of sneakers features 19 podular lugs that allow its wearer to rip through mud, snow, sand, grass and whatever else is in one’s way. This model further details a perforated upper for ventilation, a padded tongue and collar, a carbon rubber outsole and synthetic overlays. With many athletes still on the fence regarding its performance, the ATV 19+ receives a new black colorway for the fall season, which will be available at select retailers very soon.

13 Surprising Air Jordan 13 Sightings

Friday the 13th is widely considered to be an unlucky day where freaky events occur. The Air Jordan 13 doesn’t seem to be unlucky, since Michael Jordan wore the model all season en route to his 6th NBA Championship, but it does have some freaky and unexpected moments. Even though the sleek silhouette with the hologram has been a consistent sight on and off the court since its 1997 release, its tenure hasn’t been without a few unpredictable occurrences.

Click through the pages to see 13 Surprising Air Jordan 13 Sightings, ranging from remodeled football cleats to unreleased samples. Let us know what you think is the most unexpected in the comment section at the bottom of the page, and keep investigating Nice Kicks for everything sneakers.

Air Jordan 13 Low PE: Michael Jordan

rare-air-jordan-13-1

Right before Michael Jordan hit the “Last Shot” in the Air Jordan 14, he laced up a rare Air Jordan 13 Low PE. Donning a “Playoff” 13 with a haircut against the Pacers, and an all-black Low 13 with a red bottom against the Jazz, MJ got freaky and went on to win his second three-peat.

Street Artist @ Djemaa el Fna

You can find this street artist at the Djemaa el Fna square in the old city of Marrakech, Medina. The only trick he has is the miracle hats, which seem to wonder off by themselves. Of course the real artists are the guinea pig and the hedgehog who walk around under the hats. All the other animals are just there for the entourage. Another must see if you visit Marrakech!

Feel free to use this image as you wish! I only ask you to credit me by linking back to my flickr account or my website www.archetypefotografie.nl/ Thanks!
