Here’s the latest from PUMA’s creative director Rihanna as she stars in this new “Forever Bolder” campaign. Bold is a good way to describe Ri-Ri. Explore PUMA’s site though for some of Ri-Ri’s first picks and be on the lookout for this ad in real-life on a PUMA storefront. I would definitely stop in the middle of jam-packed Michigan Ave. if this caught my eye. Ha!
A Yeezy Boost White?!
The story goes: Kanye West attends an all-white attire boat party hosted by new adidas signee James Harden and debuts an all-white version of his Yeezy Boost Lows. Geez, we’re all still going crazy about this past weekend’s “Pirate Black” release.
UPDATE: Here’s the best quality look so far (FOH grainy first look…)
Said grainy first look:
UPDATE: Got eeeemmmmm!
Whoo, it’s been a great August for new basketball shoes so leave it to Nike to put the exclaimation mark on a nice month overall.
Tomorrow (the 27th) we’ll see the release of the latest Kobe X colorway “Overcome” seen in the gallery above. This is one of my favorite colorways of the signature with the grape purple, teal, and black all clashing beautifully. I also gotta cop that tee up above too.
Here’s the always motivating explanation of the namesake, via Nike:
He didn’t need to head to the line as trainers pleaded with him to head for the locker room, but he came back. He didn’t need to rehab harder than any human should have for the ‘15 season, but he came back. He didn’t need to keep training after he tore his shoulder, but he’ll come back … because one thing Kobe knows is how to overcome.
To top it off, Nike Basketball also released today the Kyrie 1 “Australia” colorway. Kyrie’s first signature gets the beautiful greens of the Australia logo and it’s by far his best colorway to date. I’m a fan of Uncle Drew, but I can’t in good conscience buy a pair of Kyries when he’s gonna go up against my Bulls again this season. Especially on a day when the Rose’s come out and look nice too. But hey, for all you Cavs and/or Aussie fans, scroll below and cop the collection.
On the heels of adidas’ biggest off-season acquisition (James Harden at $200 million), they release official images and release dates for Derrick Rose’s 6th signature shoe — the adidas #DRose6.
As you can see above, the Bulls colors take to the forefront for the away version with the home mixing white and silver. I dig the look of these much more than last year’s 5’s and it’s especially cool to see them in context of the city or Derrick’s own foot in the Instagrams below. The up close detail shots are key too and it looks like a shoe to hold in person and really get a feel for it.
The Home drops October 15th and the Away drops November 5th. Creators never stop. *nods head*
While I greatly anticipate the other 2K, today I stumbled on this new video of gameplay for WWE 2K16 and its cover star: Stone Cold Steve Austin.
As a 90s wrestling fan, it’s simply cool to see the evolution of video game technology including our favorite characters of past and no doubt Stone Cold is towards the top of the list.
So imagine my reaction while watching this amazing recreation of Stone Cold’s classic King of the Ring Finals bout with Jake “The Snake” Roberts that birthed his famous “Austin 3:16” catchphrase and kickstarted his career towards superstardom. Watch above for the cutscenes before, and after, using the audio from the actual match and then see how the game actually plays as you control Austin and win the match. Looks like a lot of fun.
We’ll get to play this and more for Stone Cold’s Showcase Mode come October 27th.
(And by the way, with the return of Sting and the Dudley Boyz on RAW last night, I may just be back in on wrestling in 2015, ha!)
Marvel unleashed a handful of new hip hop Variants today, with Wale and Wiz being my favorite adaptations of the new ones below. I also included some more of the very dope album covers with DMX x Wolverine probably being my favorite of ’em all. Enjoy!
Drizzy took to the ‘gram last night to showcase his new collab with Jordan Brand — the “6IX Year” 8’s, which he wore/premiered at OVO Fest. These are the best looks of the shoe’s white and black colorways thus far, with the latter one below being the sharpest and my favorite. Hopefully these are made for some sort of general release down the line.
