Not since 2007 have Nike designer Eric Avar and Kobe Bryant come together on a signature shoe, so the anticipation of this Kobe 9 Elite sneaker has been high. The Kobe 9 Elite is purported to be a high-top sneaker that plays like a low, with a notable element being the first usage of Flyknit on a basketball shoe. Dynamic Flywire has been introduced for added support while a carbon fiber heel counter provides lateral support. A nice touch is the nine embroidered marking along the heel as a nod to Kobe’s Achilles surgery. Seen here in the “Masterpiece” colorway, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite is set to be available February 8, 2014.

Luxury men’s underwear label RevolutionWear recently kicked off the launch of its new FRIGO ® line with a highly interactive pop-up store held in New York’s Meatpacking district in the latter stages of last month.
Building on that momentum, the brand recently introduced its bold new campaign that instead of the typical muscle-bound males you might have been expecting, features seductive Swedish models that authoritatively proclaim “No Men Should Wear Underwear,” ushering in the next generation of men’s underwear and the influence of women on this selection process.
As the intended game-changer for men’s premium underwear the line’s premier model, the FRIGO® Executive, is loaded with performance features that give each pair a level of casual comfort we’d normally expect of those designed for sportswear. These include support elements such as an adjustable pouch for a customized fit, an interior mesh pouch to keep everything in good order and a silicone lining to stops the boxer briefs from riding up. Aside from ensuring a secure fit, the underwear is also made with features to maximize comfort including a proprietary waistband made with wicking fabric, laser-cut vents on the back and patches of Eurojersey and Italy microfiber on the thighs for added breathability.

By now you’ve probably seen the clip of Kanye West going absolutely berserk during a recent appearance on Shade 45′s “Sway in the Morning,” (or at least you’ve see one of the many memes reminding Sway that “You Don’t Got The Answers”), and during Wednesday’s (December 4) episode of “RapFix Live” Mr. Calloway finally addressed the now infamous interview.
“It seemed to be public demand that I respond to an interview that I just did with Kanye West a week ago that blew up on the Internet, and I decided to respond here on ‘RapFix,’ ” Sway said as he opened the show. “I turned down a lot of other interviews, but today we’re going to set the record straight. For the record, I love Kanye West; that’s my little brother.”
Sway made light of the situation by revealing his brand new line of t-shirts that which hilariously read “I GOT THE ANSWERS.” Buy your own shirt at Sway’s Universe and watch Sway talk about his Kanye interview in the video below.
