Kanye West Reveals Original adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Sample

Recent as they may be, 2015’s adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Turtle Dove” serves as a classic to some. An event by most measures, the quite and comfy kicks caused quite a stir with many mimics to come.

Not a mimic but rather the origin, Kanye West took to Twitter to reveal an original sample of said shoe in on-foot fashion.

To even the obsessed eye, differences are slim. The shaping on the sample proves slightly higher yet chunkier, while black collar trim and a more pronounced print/lighter base tone are apparent. In addition, the laces also sport reverse contrast with black playing the base and grey serving as the subtle contrast.

BAIT Pulls from Original Reebok DMX Run 10 Sketches for New Collaboration

Following the reveal of their collaborative Reebok Question Mid “Snake 2.0” yesterday, BAIT digs further into the brand’s archive for inspiration for their second partnering release with the brand.

Inspired by deep study of the Reebok archive, including some of the earliest sketches of the DMX Run 10, BAIT debuts DMX Run 10 and DMX Fusion iterations under the “Ideation Department” moniker. The former takes into consideration the original notations of DMX Run 10 designer Bill Marvin and superimposes them over the technical drawings of the DMX sole-unit technology, using layers of transparent TPU across the upper.

The DMX Fusion is a modern re-tooling riddled in DMX heritage. Similar superimposing design aesthetics are seen through technical drawings and layers of translucent TPU and fuse technology.

The BAIT x Reebok DMX “Ideation Department” Pack is available on BAITme.com now. The pack will also be available in Los Angeles this weekend for All-Star Weekend.

Devin Booker Stars in Nike’s New Original Series ‘Come Out Of Nowhere’

After spending his adolescence in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a youthful Devin Booker ventured down south to Moss Point, Mississippi, while in high school to become elite and secure a larger spotlight. He also moved there to work alongside a local legend, his father, Melvin Booker. Through hard work and dedication, and within the blink of an eye, Booker was recruited by Kentucky University where one season was enough for the Phoenix Suns to take the explosive guard 13th overall in the 2015 NBA Draft at the tender age of 18.

Booker’s story, and others like it, are the inspiration behind Nike’s new original series ‘Come Out Of Nowhere.’ The series, which in name is likened to LeBron James’ famous block in last years NBA Finals, begins with Booker and his grassroots to superstar tale and will continue with the likes of Isaiah Thomas and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Check out Booker’s ‘Come Out of Nowhere’ installment below and also peep his Nike Zoom Rev 2017 PE.

Top Shelf // An Original “Oxidized Green” Air Jordan XIV

words & images // Nick DePaula:

As you’re surely aware, not every Retro is given its due justice. As Jordan Brand prepares to re-launch the original “Oxidized Green” Air Jordan XIV tomorrow, we’ve gotta say, they absolutely nailed it.

From the varying hues of blue and green throughout atop the simple white and black colorway, to the glossed midsole wedges and everything in between, the 2016 remake of the Tinker Hatfield classic from nearly two decades ago still stands the test of time.

In preparation of tomorrow’s launch, check out an original pair of the “Oxidized Green” Air Jordan XIV in detail below, in our latest edition of Top Shelf, and let us know how you think the Retro compares.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Convince People That the Original Apple iPhone is the iPhone 6s

After the announcement of new Apple products set to drop in the coming weeks, Jimmy Kimmel created a new instalment of First Look where his film crew attempted to convince unwitting people that the original Apple iPhone released in 2007 was actually the new iPhone 6s. Kimmel’s mischievous reporter prompted people on the street for their opinions about the device and the responses were hilarious. The segment proves the point that Apple fans will go crazy for anything they think is a new Apple product. Some noted they liked the speed of the device, while others pointed out that they liked the fact that it was smaller than its predecessors. Apple, you’ve done it again.
