With cooler climate now in our midst and undoubtedly here to stay, fall fashion necessities like MA-1 flight jackets are growing more present by the day. Japan’s mita sneakers looks to the wardrobe staple to creatively fuel their upcoming Reebok Insta Pump Fury collab.
The fittingly titled mita x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Flight Jacket” highlights an olive-green base constructed in durable canvas and feathery satin fabrication for a unique material union. Pops of orange accent the avant-garde silo well, while black furnishes the toecap, heel and pump apparatus marking a sturdy balance for this familiar color palette.
The sneaker release is joined by an actual flight jacket and water-repellant sneaker spray in conjunction with Japanese shop Winiche and Co. Expect the release this Saturday, October 22, at mita sneakers.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. D.R.A.M.
Earlier this morning the Michael J. Fox Foundation announced that the Nike MAG draw and auctions have raised $ 6.75 million for Parkinson’s Research.
The funds were generated both through live auctions in Hong Kong and London and Nike’s The Draw system, where fans of the shoe donated $ 10 for a chance to win a pair of the power-lacing sneaker.
The London auction sold the shoe for roughly $ 56,800, while Hong Kong’s sale went for much more at $ 104,000. Additionally, on the last day of The Draw, $ 10 donations were matched dollar for dollar.
In 2011, the Nike MAG raised $ 4.7M. Then, Google’s Sergey Brin matched and subsequently raised a total of $ 9.4M.
The #NikeMag Draw & auctions raised $ 6.75M for @michaeljfoxorg – amazing. Thank you to everyone who took part.

JD Sports looks to have another exclusive NMD on their hands with this new variation of the shoe in blue.
Following both the “Tech Ink” and “Collegiate Navy” releases, this new shade of blue lands somewhere in the middle of the aforementioned colorways in a fall-appropriate hue. The mesh and synthetic blended upper features tonal EVA plugs protruding through white Boost cushioning.
This new adidas NMD R1 “Blue” is available now at JD Sports.
Keeping college ties strong, the Nike KD 9 “Texas” sees the latest Kevin Durant signature take on burnt orange branding for a sharp look. Laced in a white Flyknit upper, this team take is simple and effective thanks to the shoe’s technical prowess and clean silo. Right now it’s tough to tell if these are a PE or will eventually hit retail, but in either event the Texas Longhorns Men’s Basketball Team are the first to have this pair.
Time to make more room on the KD wall. @KDTrey5 9’s in a great shade of Orange. #HookEm @TexasMBB pic.twitter.com/JqKpbS0ylC
