This weekend will be a big one for many with the arrival of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 in the “Cream White” colorway, but one Las Vegas retailer is giving you the chance to live even larger with the ultimate Vegas experience package for you and your “Real Friends.”
Las Vegas’ 12AM Run has partnered with XS Nightclub to put together a package like no other for this weekend that delivers to you a Dancefloor Table for the Chainsmokers show on Friday night, two bottles of Absolut Elyx Vodka, two bottles of Don Julio 1942, and twenty bottles of Dom Perignon Luminous Brut. Oh, and of course, FIVE pairs of the new Yeezys the night before they release. What is the price tag for the night of a lifetime? Just a cool $ 20,000.
As crazy as it might seem to drop twenty stacks for the evening experience, if one were to purchase all of this ala carte including the shoes at their retail price, the package would run you over $ 40,000 with gratuity and tax.
$ 13,000 for the table
$ 2,500 for the Absolut Elyx
$ 2,300 for the Don Julio 1942
$ 19,900 for the Dom Perignon
$ 1,100 for the five Yeezys
8.15% sales tax

Party in the city where the heat is on, adidas is going to Miami this spring as they’ve partnered on with World Out Games. Making its American debut, the 10-day event which hosts both multi-sport human rights and cultural events will welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex athletes from more than 40 countries including parts of the world where homosexuality still remains illegal and hidden. All about inclusiveness, the World Out Games are open to all regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation and is an awesome way to celebrate diversity and connect people through athletics.
“We believe that through sport, we have the power to change lives,” said adidas North America President Mark King. “We believe in the power of sport and its ability to transcend differences and unite people around hope and celebration. Sport plays a critical role in our culture today and we can harness that influence to make real change for the world. We want to foster a culture in sports that celebrates diversity and provides a safe place for everyone to play.”
The World Out Games will offer activities ranging from beginner to competitive, in sports such as basketball, track and field, running, soccer, bodybuilding, field hockey, swimming, tennis, triathlon, volleyball and more.
In addition, World Out Games Miami will feature the fourth Global LGBTQI Human Rights Conference from May 26 to 29, based upon an exchange of powerful ideas among internationally respected human rights activists, researchers, legal scholars and trade organizations. This summit will also include array of cultural events like art exhibits, history tours, a poetry reading with renowned poet Robert Pinsky and a film festival. To culminate the festivities, on June 1st an artistic response to the Orlando massacre at Pulse Nightclub will take place, fusing dance, music, poetry and visual arts to honor the 49 lives lost.
“The endorsement and support of adidas is significant for World Out Games Miami,” said World OutGames CEO Ivan Cano. “adidas’ social and environmental commitment to creativity and diversity and its mission to be ‘the best sports brand in the world’ aligns with our goal to excel and achieve in all areas of athletics, culture and human rights. The adidas alliance will allow us to reach an even greater international audience seeking to champion and celebrate inclusion and equality across a variety of platforms.”
Pretty dope. For more information or to check it out, visit the World Out Games website. Big ups to adidas, the athletes and the World Out Games organization.
adidas received a perfect score of 100 in 2016 and 2017 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, which rates workplaces on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. While adidas has always celebrated individuality and fostered fairness, the brand in 2016 formally added a clause to its athlete contracts underscoring its commitment to its partners regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.
Pushing past patent leather Pro Models or even electric Crazylight colorways, diversity was at an all-time high as far as sponsored sneakers go at the adidas Uprising Tournament at Game On in Fort Worth, TX. Our girl Cassy Athena was out there to shoot the best Kicks On Court, and boy were there some surprises.
From unreleased Nick Young PEs to Hurricane heat from Dame Lillard, see the best prep exclusives and team takes in the photos below.
Jerry Lorenzo — dubbed 2016’s most influential man in sneaker culture by our own Darren Griffin — is adding to his resume in 2017 and ideally our rotations. Recently on IG, the designer announced that he has seven collaborations in total releasing with Vans for the Fall/Winter season.
Of the seven, four will be via Vans Vault under his Fear of God line, while the other three will be inline Vans in conjunction with his F.O.G. imprint. When previewing the collection, the designer who pulls heavy inspiration and themes from his strong Christian faith wrote the Bible verse Joshua 10:24-25, a passage that plays off strength and the Lord conquering one’s enemies by standing atop them (perhaps the reasoning for the verse on the midsole).
Easily one of the best collaborations of 2016, we’re excited to see what Jerry and Vans cook up this time around. Let us know what you hope to see in the comments below.
…3 @vans coming with @fog… and 4 #vansvault with @fearofgod …Joshua 10:24-25 #fallwinter2017
