REEBOK’S “I3 MOTORSPORTS” CAMPAIGN

Today, Reebok officially unveils its highly anticipated “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel collection, championed by moto-inspired takes on the brand’s iconic retro footwear models: the Question Mid and new Classic Leather Legacy. Introducing the brand’s “I3 Motorsports” narrative, which highlights Reebok’s relationship to bike life through the lens of its original rough rider Allen Iverson, the “Street Sleigh” pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers.

With a history in motorsports sponsorship dating back to the mid-80s and the introduction of its racing-inspired Answer IV and I3 Apparel range in the early 00’s, Reebok – alongside cross-cultural icon Allen Iverson – helped introduce motorsports to the streets at the turn of the century. In fact, Reebok’s vibrant and overbranded I3 Apparel line is often recognized as one of the earliest and most important crossovers between streetwear and sportswear.​ Today, like most team sports, inner city motorsport or “bike life”  is an important subculture in many cities, affording freedom of expression and a sense of community.

​To celebrate this important subculture, Reebok released a photo series that documents riders from Atlanta, a prominent, thriving bike life city. The series [HERE] captures the pure freedom of expression, movement, style and prowess of these individuals and their wider community.

Tailored with a contemporary red and black holiday aesthetic nodding Iverson’s heart and style, the Question Mid “Street Sleigh” [imagery HERE] presents a material execution inspired by ATV’s and dirt bikes known for their high-contrast matte and gloss detailing. ​The Deep Black full-grain leather upper is accented with a patent synthetic toe and a Rich Red randing (mock welt) overlay that flows onto a glossed midsole for a truly eye-catching design. The silhouette effectively underlines the intersection of bike life and basketball in the inner city – two important and often overlapping subcultures in which Reebok remains rooted. Available in adult ($140, G57551), junior (GV7187), preschool (GV7184) and toddler (GV7182) sizing.

Riding alongside Question Mid is the new Classic Leather Legacy [imagery HERE] that puts its own twist on the “Street Sleigh” narrative. With a Rich Red leather upper seated atop a Deep Black rubber outsole and mixing glossy and matte overlays throughout, the Classic Leather Legacy “Street Sleigh” presents a clean and thoughtful symbol of bike life and Reebok heritage. Available in adult ($80, GZ2752) sizing. 

“Street Sleigh” will also usher in the introductory release of Reebok’s new “Iverson Apparel” range, showcasing historic images captured by longtime A.I. photographer Gary Land, among other graphic designs. Apparel imagery can be found HERE.

Finally, to tie a bow around the holiday release, professional basketball player Montrezl Harrell delivers “Street Sleigh” gifts to kids in this animation-style short film, which can be viewed HERE.

Reebok’s “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers. Fans can stay tuned for more from “I3 Motorsports” in Spring 2021.

The Iconic Men’s Shoes You Will Want to Own Today

When it comes to shoes, there are some brands that have stood the test of time. Timberland, Nike, Converse and adidas all have iconic kicks that have been gracing our feet for decades.

Here, we give you a run down of the most iconic men’s shoes of all time, which are all still available today. 

The Timberland Boots

The first Timberland boots were released in 1973, and they are still a bestseller today. As a boot fit for both work and play, it is the versatility of the Timberland that has kept them in the spotlight. 

They are soft and made of quality materials. With a waterproof leather upper and lug rubber outsole, Timberland boots are not only stylish, but they’re also comfortable — and something every man should have in his collection. These boots do come in a few different colors, but the tan hue is at the top of our list. While Timberlands have always been iconic, hip hop artists such as Kanye West have taken them to the next level of cool. 

The Nike Air Max Sneakers

When you own a pair of Nike Air Max kicks, they will be so much more than a typical pair of sneakers. First released in 1987, these retro shoes come in just about any color scheme you can imagine. Known for the cushioned base and that “window to the sole,” the brand wanted to show fans the air that was hidden inside. The idea to pump up the sole with air originally came from Frank Rudy, an aeronautical engineer who had experience with NASA. 

Each season we see small changes to the Nike Air Max range, but they still have that ’80s bounce we all know and love.

The Converse Chuck Taylors

Another shoe that is rich in history is the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars. These basketball babes were first invented in 1917, but Chuck Taylor wasn’t completely satisfied with the design. 

He asked for more support in 1922, and they have been an icon ever since. Converse shoes come in different cuts, but we really can’t go past the high tops. They can be worn with any outfit, and really do scream retro fashion. Whether it is black, white or red, it’s that star that will keep these legends popular well into the future.

The Adidas Originals Superstar

Another shoe that we have been coveting for 50 years is the Adidas Originals Superstar. Its rubber shell toe cap and flexibility made it a direct competitor against Converse in the basketball market. 

Adidas is a pop culture favorite, and while the Superstar may have started as a basketball shoe, it now has its place on the street. The 80s’ hip hop scene helped propel this shoe into the spotlight, as Run DMC proudly wore the three stripes

An Iconic Shoe Is a Must-Have

Shoes aren’t just for working and running, they can be the finishing touch to your look. Some shoes are made to be worn for life, and a pair of Timberlands, Nike Airs, Adidas Originals or Converse Chuck Taylor’s have long-term appeal.

No matter what the season or the occasion, these iconic shoes will be there to make a statement. Plus, they are all made with comfort and support in mind.

Drake collaborates with OVO-Nike sneaker

Drake OVO-Nike sneaker collaboration in the works

Drake is said to be launching his collaboration with Nike in 2021. Drake has already worked together with Nike. The brand used Drake’s owl logo for a limited edition of Air Jordan products such as shoes, sweats and special Air Jordan 4, that celebrated the Toronto Raptors becoming champions. There are already mockups on the internet and the rumor is that Drake and Nike might be releasing Air Force 1 and OVO. His other collaborations with Nike include a gold color pair of Jordan 3s that he wore at the 2014 OVO Fest and Jordan 3s that he is wearing in the music video of Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda. Drake has his own clothing brand and also often works together with other designers, such as Roots, Takashi Murakami, Dsquared2. Other footwear brands that he is collaborating with are Clarks and Timberland.

Fans are waiting for private shows

The music industry, like almost all the other industries, took a big blow when the events were canceled all over the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drake canceled all of his performances for 2020. Some singers are planning their return to the stage for 2021 and the fans of Drake hope that they will soon have information about his concert plans for 2021 too. “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” Drake’s new album was a huge hit and made it to the top of all charts in Canada and the United States. The fans would love to hear those new songs from the album. The majority of the countries already entered phase one of reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, so restaurants, bars, and casinos are allowed to accommodate a small number of guests. Reportedly, casinos and clubs will be the first to organize spaces for the singers to perform. Drake might appear on VIP shows in Casinos and perform there for a small number of guests. These types of shows are popular because casinos allow guests to enjoy table games as well as best online casino games. Poker tables, roulettes, slot machines, even sports betting will be at the disposal of the audience. Some parties might even have a very strict dress code. The themes can vary from classic nights to particular movie themes. For instance, during the classic nights, the guests would be asked to wear tuxedos and gowns and for other nights they might be required to wear a Star Wars-themed outfit.

Drake New Album Rumors: DJ Akademiks Shares Major Hints

Drake might have canceled the concerts for 2020 but he did not go on vacation. He is rumored to be releasing his sixth studio album this summer. The gossip about this has been happening for months now. As the summer came, the fans started to wonder when they would get an official announcement about it. This week DJ Akademiks shared that he knows about the plans of Drake on the new album. He did not confirm or deny anything but Drake’s sixth album would be a big deal. DJ Akademiks wrote that his source said that YouTube’s divisions Pandora and SiriusXM are about to finalize a deal for Drake’s sixth studio album. The message said that Drake might be performing songs from his previous albums for thirty minutes and then in a fifteen-minute address share the information about the new album. The plan is for the events to take place from July 2nd to August. Nobody on Drake’s team has confirmed anything yet. The fans hope that with so many concerts delayed, Drake would actually find time to surprise them with his new songs. With so many songs from Dark Lane Demo Tapes and his rumored 6th album, 2021 would be the year of a big return for Drake.

PUMA X THE HUNDREDS

Sports company PUMA has joined with community-powered streetwear brand The Hundreds to debut a new line of footwear, apparel and accessories. Inspired by the transformation of streetwear over the last three decades, ‘The ‘90s Cliques’ collection features bold graphic-driven pieces with heavy color blocking. Garments can be broken down into four key styles: preppy, jock, party crew and 20/20.

The PUMA x The Hundreds Windbreaker rocks a plaid print that would look at home at any ‘90s concert, with a half-zip neckline and welt pockets. For a more contemporary look, try the camo PUMA x The Hundreds Reflective Windbreaker paired with PUMA x The Hundreds Reflective Shorts. Each clique is also present in the collection through an extensive range of unique tees, hoodies, shorts and tracksuits.

The 20/20 crew is represented by the RS-Pure x THE HUNDREDS shoe, which merges past and present sneaker trends with a monochromatic black camo print and a suede Formstrip. The new line also incorporates PUMA classics like the Palace Guard, Performer Mid, Clyde and Leadcat, with a look tailored to reflect each clique.

Highlights from the accessories collection include the PUMA x The Hundreds Bucket Hat and PUMA x The Hundreds Cap with a flat brim, as well as two takes on the classic streetwear backpack.

California-based The Hundreds was founded in LA in 2003 by Bobby Kim and Ben Shenassafar. It is a classic streetwear brand and a media platform dedicated to global street culture. Their guiding focus, people over product, is also the main force behind the PUMA x The Hundreds collaboration. By exploring the progression of ‘90s street style over time, designers got a chance to create products for the consumer of today as well as tomorrow.

The  PUMA X The Hundreds collection ranges from $35 – $140 and will be available April 30, 2020, on thehundreds.com and May 7, 2020, on PUMA.com and select retailers.
