Sneaker Press Release Updates July 2, 2022

Despite the top basketball players’ insatiable thirst for innovation, most (if not all) of them have “kept the lights on” by offering old products to new generations.

Over the past week, modern marvels like Yeezy have teased more offerings from futuristic Ye (the being formerly known as “Kanye West”), but countless social media conversations related to early retros and nostalgic products. The Nike Air Force 1 Low “West Indies” surfaced via official images a few months before Labor Day weekend, the series of days when New York’s West Indian community strolls from Eastern Parkway to Grand Army Plaza to celebrate the Caribbean. From the looks of it, the pair are set to return with all the original details they first stepped out with in 2002. Similarly, the Air Max Penny worn during the 1996 NBA All-Star Game has emerged in professional product shots, helping to create energy. around the Social Status collaboration and more. The Nike Air Ship, Michael Jordan’s shoe of choice before the Air Jordan line, has also appeared in several colorways that don’t reinvent the wheel, but breathe some love into the decades-old and historically significant silhouette.

For a look at all this and more, including other releases from New Balance and adidas, check out our top headlines from July 2-8 ahead.
