Nike SB Dunk Low “Cold Pizza”

Nike continues its streak of delectable sneaker themes with the new "Cold Pizza." Black accents found on the tongue patch, large Swoosh logo and heel tab complement a striking, crinkle-textured metallic silver upper that represents the aluminium foil used to wrap leftover pizza. As a testament to its name, these sneakers feature a special cheesy pepperoni pizza-themed insole. These Dunks come in black laces but are also offered with a white option.
Watch out for these "Cold Pizza" Dunk Lows to hit Nike retailers soon, which you could pair with the new Nike SB Dunk High "Chicken and Waffles" in your spring rotation for some food-festive footwear.

Novel Fineries Transforms Butterfly Wings Into Pocket Squares

Butterfly wings are a thing of beauty, allowing the creatures to flaunt their colors to others in the vicinity, much like a pocket square that adds flair to the outfit of a dapper gent. Taking this relationship quite literally is fashion start-up Novel Fineries, which creates handmade butterfly wing "pocket art" using a traditional Chinese double-sided embroidery technique. Replicating the exact details of the wings of 50 butterfly species, the wings are created by hand-embroidering the iridescent patterns on a piece of silk, while blank spaces are delicately shaded in by hand with paint. The "pocket art" is then packaged in a wooden box with a glass lid, much like the method of preserving butterfly specimens for scientific purposes. Take a look at the debut collection above, and find more information online here.

The Future of In-Flight Entertainment Is a Bigger and Better Screen

Airline in-flight entertainment systems have made major strides in terms of content in the past few years, but many patrons are still stuck with the tiny screens with poor displays. Thales thinks the industry can do a lot better, and has just previewed a new in-flight entertainment system called Digital Sky. The prototype gives each (presumably coach) passenger a massive 21.3-inch touchscreen. However, the screens are in portrait orientation to fit into seats, leading to some extra space while you’re tuning into your movie. Despite that, the bigger screen is much more capable of new services such as displaying the in-flight magazine, duty free items for sale, or local highlights at your destination. While there aren’t any confirmed partners just yet, we can all be thankful for some improvement in this area.
