Stephen Curry’s Under Armour Curry 3 “Chinese New Year” Is Dropping This Weekend


Yesterday Stephen Curry was announced as a Western Conference starter for this year’s NBA All-Star Game, as now we get a look at the latest colorway of his Curry 3 signature that is arriving this weekend.

In paying homage to the Chinese New Year, the coinciding theme for the release is “Happiness, longevity and good fortune. Sweep away the bad to make room for the good.” We in turn see the hoops shoe boasting a bright red upper, with multicolored detailing positioned along the midsole and heel trim. Tonal red SC branding is then featured towards the toe, while Under Amour tagging is done up in gold atop the tongue.

You’ll be able to cop the Under Armour Curry 3 “Chinese New Year” beginning January 21 at select UA providers nationwide.

Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery.

The Nike Flyknit Racer is one of the Swoosh’s most popular silhouettes at the moment. The slick lines, knitted uppers and lightweight modern nature of the sneaker perfectly fit current fashion trends and as such we are not surprised that fans are excited about pretty much every new colorway that hits the market. Furthermore Nike does a good job not oversupplying the silhoeutte either.

Up next is a fire rooster-inspired, university red and deep crimson colorway, celebrating the Chinese New Year. The new Nike Flyknit Racer will hit retailers on January 27.

Visit the original post to see all 5 images from this gallery.

Jordans dubbed “Pure Money” are typically represented by all-white uppers, but in the newest iteration of the line, it appears that the trend has been officially broken.

Official images for the Air Jordan 7 “Pure Money” have been released, and according to these pictures, the new pair sports a grey leather upper and pink leather overlays on top. Parts of the shoe also feature metallic silver hits, such as though on the tongue’s “Jordan,” as well as the Jumpman on the sides of the shoe. It’s still too early to tell, and based on the official colorway description of White/Metallic Silver-Pure Platinum, there is a chance that the photos aren’t entirely accurate, so be sure to stay tuned for updates concerning the color of the shoe.

The Air Jordan 7 “Pure Money” is set to release June 3 of this year for a retail price of $190 USD.

Here’s a Much Closer Look at Supreme x Louis Vuitton’s Ultra-Hyped Collab


Visit the original post to see all 20 images from this gallery.

Yesterday, Louis Vuitton and Supreme blew the roof off Paris Fashion Week, debuting a new collaborative range of apparel, footwear and accessories. Today, we can take a closer look at the FW17 offerings shown on the Paris runway.

Starting with accessories, we see Louis Vuitton’s luxurious Epi leather used on the Christopher backpack and Keepall duffel bag, as well as a selection of pouches and waist bags. Small keychains, scarves, gloves, wallets and an iPhone case round out the collection of branded goods, which feature the signature Louis Vuitton monogram and Supreme hits. Naturally, the two brands also decided on a range of opulent trunks, which have traditionally been Vuitton’s most esteemed products.

In terms of apparel, two footwear styles are also shown in the gallery above, both low-top silhouettes crafted from leather, optioned in multiple colorways. We also see a grip of denim menswear, again featuring the Louis Vuitton monogram, across a range of tops, and what is possibly our favorite piece from the collection, a classic baseball shirt.

The line is rumored to drop on July 17 at select Louis Vuitton stores, as well as from temporary retail locations. Stay posted for more information.

PBS Announces Documentary On Civil Rights Leader John Lewis

PBS Announces First Ever Documentary On John Lewis

PBS has announced a forthcoming documentary on iconic civil rights leader and United States representative John Lewis.

Titled John Lewis – Get in the Way, the documentary will chronicle Lewis’ life from being born as the son of a sharecropper to becoming the civil rights leader he will forever be known as. But what makes Get in the Way truly special is that Lewis serves as the narrator throughout the documentary, recounting stories of his youth and leading the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Alabama.

“Atlanta and the state of Georgia have played a pivotal role in the civil rights movement,” Teya Ryan, CEO and President of Georgia Public Broadcasting, said in a statement. “Through the years we’ve shared the stories of many of the movement’s greatest heroes with Georgia ties, including Martin Luther King Jr. and Andrew Young. We are thrilled to bring a film that so eloquently captures the legacy of John Lewis to a national audience through PBS.”

Other civil rights activists also make an appearance in the documentary including Andrew Young; C.T. Vivian; Juanita Abernathy; and Bernard Lafayette. Lewis’ congressional colleagues Eleanor Holmes NortonNancy Pelosi; Harry Reid; Emanuel Cleaver; and Amory Houghton are also featured in the film.

The announcement comes at the right time, in which Lewis’ name has been in headlines recently for statements made against President-elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis said in an interview with NBC News this past Friday. He also added that he would not be attending Trump’s inauguration on January 20.

Following Lewis’ remarks Trump then took to Twitter to respond to Lewis, saying that the civil rights leader was “all talk, talk, talk – no action or results.” Trump received plenty of backlash for his remarks, considering they were made towards a prominent figure in America’s civil rights movement, during Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend.

John Lewis – Get in the Way will premiere on February 10, 2017, as a part of PBS’ Black History Month programming. Check out a trailer for the documentary below.

Watch Young Thug’s Disastrous Video for “Wyclef Jean”

Young Thug’s “Wyclef Jean,” a track inspired by The Fugees member, is one of the standout tracks of Young Thug’s critically acclaimed JEFFERY project. Today, the record’s music video finally surfaces, and everything goes dreadfully wrong. Directed by Pomp & Clout, the video costed $100,000 USD and the Atlanta rapper hardly showed up, due to a number of reasons including having his Instagram account hacked. An altercation between Thug’s camp and the cops even occured during shooting so the directors opted instead to use B-roll footage for the final video. Watch the results above.
