Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days”

Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days”

After giving us a “No Days Off” and “No Bad Days” version of the New Balance 997S in 2019, Bodega and New Balance are once again joining forces for another colorful collaboration.

Dubbed the Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days,” the upcoming silhouette was originally revealed by the Clippers star forward Kawhi Leonard. The silhouette is constructed from a mix of mesh, leather, and suede and features vibrant contrasting accents and lightning bolt tongue tabs. Rounding out the final details on the Bodega 997S collab is an ABZORB and ENCAP cushioned sole.

The New Balance x Bodega 997S “Better Days” is the conclusion of a series of 997s celebrating and encouraging the individual initiative and communal spirit of an optimistic outlook. To highlight the fact that better days can be shaped into any form, Bodega has paired with members of the creative arena, who have shared their own conceptions of better days, and generously shared a glimpse into their mindsets and creative processes.

Look for the Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days” to release in select retailers this Friday, September 25th. Continue reading “Bodega x New Balance 997S “Better Days””

Nike To Celebrate Kobe Bryant’s Legacy This Week #MambaWeek

Earlier this year, we lost a legend. The tragic passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant, and several others on January 26th put a screeching halt on the world of sports and the whole world in general as the hoops community froze in shock. Since then, it’s been an ongoing mourning period, and finally, Nike has announced its plans to honor the Black Mamba with a full week dedicated to continuing his lasting legacy.  Beginning tomorrow, August 23rd, Mamba Week will move forward with three key efforts – a $1 million donation to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the continued support of the Mamba League, and special retail drops.

Dior Reveals Their Air Jordan 1

The ever-growing crossover of luxury and sportswear is inching closer to its apex this month as Nike officially reveals a first look at the hotly anticipated DIOR x Air Jordan 1. The Italian-made shoes feature a white and grey upper with ‘Air Dior’ punched into the iconic Wings logo, while an all-over print in high-quality jacquard acts as the Swoosh logo of the silhouette. A translucent icy sole with a graphic beneath, subtle contrast stitching, and metallic chrome hangtags accompanying the rumored $2,000 sneaker, while nine eyelets confirm that the canvas in question is indeed that of a High. The choice of light grey is a nod to the French atelier’s history as the hue was a mainstay of the brand since its founding in 1947.

It’s no surprise that the shoe emerged today, given Dior’s first-ever US debut of a men’s seasonal line was scheduled ahead of Art Basel shenanigans in Miami. Nike confirms that the shoes will release in April 2020 at select Dior stores; an MSRP has not been revealed. See the official images below. Continue reading “Dior Reveals Their Air Jordan 1”
