Wow. What a week. The last seven days in the world of sneakers were nothing short of blissful madness, thanks to collabs, fresh releases, and welcome returns alike. Although enough went down for hours worth of discussion, the biggest story was unquestionably Kanye West‘s enormous adidas Yeezy“deadstock” event. Split between two sites and featuring a plethora of models, it gave ‘Ye’s rabid fanbase another chance at some of his most desirable shoes. Although that was understandably huge news, we’d be remiss to not touch on other topics as well, from a new Kobe Bryant Nike Basketball shoe to the revealing of a third set of Stranger Things x Nike collaborations and G-Dragon’s Air Force 1s. Oh, and the return of a beloved Vince Carter sneaker from the early ’00s as well, a welcome memory of a time when VC didn’t stand for “virtual currency.” For all that and more, check out our twelve most poignant headlines from the past week, and be sure to let us know what your favorite occurrence was as well.
