What to Wear Today: Sweatpants that don’t say “I don’t care.”
words // Darren Griffin:
Before a coveted sneaker like the Nike Kyrie 1 hits global retailers, it goes through multiple stages of design and performance progression. And in almost all cases, the final product has been revised more times than brand’s are willing to reveal. But practice makes perfect and samples don’t generate sales. That’s why the unveiling of this Kyrie 1 sample is all the more alluring. Seemingly a shell of what eventually became the Nike Kyrie 1 “Dream” colorway, this concept highlights slightly different coloring and an undone tongue and collar. Yet for all intents and purposes, this sample is almost good enough to sell. Take a look for yourself below.

The Barracuda Luggage is an all-in-one suitcase, with all that you need in one handy and innovative carry-on. Fit for the modern traveler and urbanite, the Barracuda’s focus is to be useful with all the distinctive benefits that will enhance your trip to the airport. The product comes with several useful features, the first of which is its portability. Luggages notoriously take up useful space, but the Barracuda is collapsible, and can easily fit into small areas. In terms of its design, an ergonomic handle trumps traditional suitcase handles with its 360 degree swivel ability. A built in tray further enhances your trip to the airport, coming out of the handle frame and can keep your laptop safe and sturdy while waiting for a flight. Finally, two technological improvements include a GPS tracker so you never lose your carry-on, and a USB charger for on the go power.

In anticipation of the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Barcelona Days” release which is slated to be tomorrow 25 April, we take A Closer Look at the shoe dedicated to Spain’s involvement with the summer Olympic Games of 1992. The iconic silhouette has been rendered with a relatively playful colorway reminiscent of Barcelona’s seemingly vibrant culture with this idea being mirrored through the use of pop colors on the shoe’s outsole,tongue and heel counter.The upper has been constructed from a combination of light grey suede with an overlay of dark grey leather panelling forming the recognizably peaked design of the overall shoe. The fact that color has been used so sparingly amongst a predominantly grey scale palette suggests a link to the fact that the vibrant society and various cultural phenomena within Spain’s capital can be somewhat hidden at times — reserved for locals and those in the know. This particular rendition of the very shoes Michael Jordan wore throughout the 1992 tournament will be available at select retailers like Packer Shoes, and online at Nike for $ 190 USD.

Although the Nike.com release this weekend has been delayed for reasons that remain unknown, the Air Jordan 7 “Barcelona Days” could still be yours tomorrow at select Jordan Brand retailers globally. Inspired by Spain’s participation in the Summer Olympic Games in 1992, the retro Jordan silhouette takes to a playful color variation that features the foundational components of the Air Jordan 7 “Bourdeaux.” However, were the black and grey base takes the Bourdeaux in another direction, this pair moves towards vibrant color pops at the tongue, midsole, outer and Jumpman branding. Give them one last look below for the release tomorrow, April 25, at select retailers including Packer Shoes.
