Kanye West has been busy this weekend. Between playing the Pan-American Games and previewing a new track, Yeezy seems to have his mind on the music and his feet on the stage.
Recently, Mr. West made a cameo on “I Am Cait.” All smiles, Kanye spoke on Caitlyn’s strength and ability to defy perception. Shortly after, Caitlyn’s mom and siblings asked Kanye about his unlaced and oft-worn adidas Ultra Boosts. Peep what he had to say in the video clip above.

While the wearables market is booming with the likes of watches and fitness trackers, HELIX is taking a step back by turning something you already bring along with you into a wearable accessory — earphones. According to research from PR Newswire, people use earphones for up for four hours per day, with many of us owning three or more pairs. However, one of the biggest challenges with headphones is forgetting to bring one along or having to untangle its mess of a wire. Therefore, HELIX fuses on the go access, convenience and sleek design to create a functional and simple cuff bracelet with a pair of bluetooth earphones hidden inside.

This week’s Best of #TodaysKicks is a good one!
There were thousands of great on-foot photos uploaded to Instagram over the last seven days. Most of them contained some of the most popular and sought-after LeBron and Jordan models out. At first, compiling this list seemed impossible as social media platforms are flooded with both player’s signature sneakers and posting them in bulk here felt pointless. And just as I was about to riddle this list with said models, I came across @montanainc in the Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Recon”.
Seeing that photo of @montanainc reminded me that there are a ton of hidden gems on IG and that I may not be the only person who needed their memory jogged. With that being said, here is a group of 20 sneakers that range from the classic that is the Jordan Jumpman Pro to the recently released Takashi Murakami x VANS Vault Slip-on.
After you give the list look make sure you let us know what your favorite sneaker out of the bunch is in the comments section below. And as always, make sure you tag all of your on-foot sneaker photos with #TodaysKicks for a chance to be featured in our weekly recap here on NiceKicks.com and on our Instagram page.

It’s been some time since the GEL-Lyte III has been considered a performance running model, but the beloved ASICS silhouette continues to re-establish itself as a throwback favorite. Adding to the sneaker’s long list of casual-friendly makeups is a new, sartorially-minded version in a combination of tan and purple. Constructed with a richly-colored synthetic and textured textile upper, the GEL-Lyte III Tan/Tan features purple accents on its eyelets, heel panel and rubber outsole, along with familiar features like the design’s iconic split tongue and GEL-cushioned midsole. Take a look at ASICS’s latest GEL-Lyte III above and find it now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
