It was an exciting weekend as this year’s Lunar New Year celebration officially began the day before a thrilling finish to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. While many are still recovering from the festivities, there’s still plenty more to look forward to as this week sees NBA All-Star Weekend take place in Indianapolis for the first time since 1985. Alongside various sneaker releases tied to the weekend from Nike, Jordan Brand, PUMA and adidas, New Balance and Crocs are also set to make noise. However, before we give you the full rundown of drops to prepare for, let’s go ahead and take a look back at last week’s major headlines.

Looking first to the feature front, the Hypebeast team assembled a round-up of the best Lunar New Year-themed sneakers of all time, including one pair from this week’s edition of best footwear drops. From there, Nike had a relatively quiet week with its major moves involving the unveiling of Coach Prime’s revamped Air DT Max ’96 and Drake’s NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive in “White/Black.” On the other hand, the Jumpman team kept busy with Usher appearing in custom Air Jordan 4s during his star-studded halftime performance at the Super Bowl. Beyond that, a first look at the $975 USD Air Jordan 1 “Wings” pairs that are made in Italy surfaced. As for the latest rumors, A Ma Maniére is said to have an Air Jordan 3 “Burgundy Crush” collaboration in the works, Travis Scott is expected to release a special Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Pale Vanilla” and a “Brown Cement” version of the Air Jordan 3 is reportedly on the way.

Elsewhere in the industry, adidas oversaw the release of its camo print-covered BAPE Stan Smiths while Wales Bonner surprised sneakerheads with the release of two adidas Sambas limited to 750 pairs each. Additional reveals from around the sneakerverse ranged from Kyrie Irving unveiling his ANTA Kai 1, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME’s New Balance MR860 surfacing in two colorways and Salomon previewing ten new sneakers at USM Modular Furniture’s latest event.
