Jordan Brand Update

Category : Blog , Nike , Recap , Release Reminder

Can you believe Jordan Brand will soon be releasing its thirty-second signature sneaker? This, in addition to the Team Jordan line, special releases, and player exclusives, has shaped Jordan Brand to be one of the most well respected and most popular shoe brands in the world.

Here’s a look at the Air Jordan XXXII which is made with a combination of a Flyknit upper and a Nike Zoom insole:

Air Jordan XXXII “Rosso Corsa”
AA1253-601
September 23, 2017
$185

Air Jordan XXII
AA1253-001
October 18, 2017
$185

Air Jordan XXXII Low
AA1256-001
October 18, 2017
$160

Looks like this model has taken some cues from the Air Jordan II:

Aside from that, this sneaker uses the best in Nike technology. Also, the AJ XXXII campaign is being led by no other than JB’s own Russell Westbrook, who recently signed a ten year extension with the brand. Will this help get JB it’s spot back on the top USA footwear brands or will they need to bring more OG sneakers back? Let us know how you feel via Twitter!

Thank you for reading and thanks for your patronage!

adidas Snatches Silver in August

Category : adidas , Blog , Nike , Recap

In what many are calling a major turn of events, adidas has passed Jordan Brand earning the second slot in the USA’s footwear brand ranking. Although they fell short to Nike for the #1 spot, adidas’ basketball sneaker sales were up 40% last month compared to the drop in sales by both Nike and JB.

The Superstar and Tubular models (above) recorded high sales last month but what really helped was the basketball models adidas has been improving upon. James Harden, Damian Lillard (who says his next signature will have a BOOST-less option to promote affordability), Derrick Rose, and Andrew Wiggins, all promising players, have worn adidas on court and are the faces for adidas Basketball.

While the adidas roster may not seem as strong as LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Paul George of Nike, it is coupled with a technology that is surpassing NIKE AIR as the go to for style and comfort.

And how can we forget Mr. West?

Hispanic Heritage Month

Category : Blog

Now more than ever we need to take time to embrace our Hispanic, Latino, and Latina brothers and sisters, they have contributed far more to our country than mass media will let you believe!

In the fashion world, many will not tell you, but will agree that the majority of designs take inspiration from the exotic. In North America, we are lucky to have many flavors of the exotic to the south of us.

Singer, songwriter, spokesperson, model, actress, and fashion designer Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

In regions such as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua (all celebrate their independence on September 15th), Mexico (celebrates the 16th), and Chile (celebrates the 18th), there are traditions that have spilled into the USA in the form of fashion trends.

The Chilean youth displaying traditional men’s and women’s garments.

The youth of the Dominican Republic celebrating a joyous event which calls for garments in the country’s identifying colours.

Many people would tell you to take a trip to Guatemala if you’d like to immerse yourself in Latin culture, these outfits confirm those assumptions!

Can you see the similarities between our fashion and the clothing worn by our Mexican neighbours?

Rich embroidery, which came from Mexico, is used greatly in today’s fashion to display luxurious craftsmanship and exquisite detail. The dramatic colours (seen in the garments above) of Latin America’s wildlife heavily influenced the patterns worn by inhabitants, bold ruffles gave Flamenco dancers their graceful presence, peasant sleeves, another Mexican innovation was brought forth by the Puebla dresses made to keep women cool during the very hot summers.

From these humble beginnings came some of the most powerful and influential people representing their place in Hispanic, Latino, and Latina culture. By assimilating a world view yet staying true their roots these notable men and women have changed the world in style:

Oscar de la Renta (La Republica Dominicana) (Rest in Peace) had dressed every first lady since Jackie Kennedy until his 2014 death.

Manolo Blahnik (Spain) has built a luxury shoe label known around the world.

Eva Perón, the Argentinian civil rights activist, feminist, and actress wore some of the simplest yet most coveted pieces in fashion history.

Frida Kahlo, known best for her paintings displayed traditional Mexican heritage with a modern twist as well as her own interpretation.

These icons, as well as countless others, with their hard work, determination, and connection to their roots, have helped mold the world into a more accepting world, and those who are inspired by their works will continue the legacy.

Big shout out to Latina.com, the Hispanic Heritage Month Website, the Frida Kahlo Website, this article on clothing made in ‘Merica, this article on Eva Duarte de Perón as well as her website, and last but not least, The Fashion Spot.

Thank you for reading and as always, thank you for your patronage.

Whose Shoes Will Rule the Future?

Category : Blog

Both of these technologies are making great strides, and who better to utilise them than the footwear industry? What we are seeing is a dynamic shift in the industrial revolution.

We are experiencing what is called the Internet of Things (IoT). In short, it is the use of everyday items that have been given the ability to communicate with each other via wireless connection.

What does this have to do with sneakers? Well, there are sensors that can monitor your gait, or manner of walking. These sensors, usually see on those high tech treadmills,reset yahoo password in combination with let’s say a 3D printer yield results similar to this.

The plan, according to adidas, is to be able to make sneakers so fast that they’ll be able to quickly tailor make them for each individual customer. How about that, a machine that makes a sneaker for your feet and yours alone.

Now, Nike is on a similar path but they want their kicks to tailor make themselves while you’re wearing them!

You may have seen something similar to these (the Nike Mag) from those famous movies that came out so long ago. Now the adaptive lacing system is here and ready for widespread use.

Which will you choose?

With the footwear industry slowly changing from mass production of a certain shoe to making a specific pair per person, which side will you be on? Will you go with adaptive lacing? 3D printed footwear? Or will you go for a fully customisable look?

Whatever your choice is get ready for the future of footwear!
