A Closer Look at the Kobe 9 Elite “What The”

Shortly following his crowning as the all-time NBA scoring leader, Kobe Bryant remains in the spotlight with the upcoming release of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "What The" sneaker. Earlier, we gave a sneak peek of the newest addition to the The Black Mamba’s brood of footwear, and now bring you more extensive looks of the shoe. The sneaker stands out with its bold multicolored palette, with dominant green and orange-pink tones on each shoe’s Flyknit upper that highly contrast with the light greys found on the heel cup, collar lining and speckled midsole trim. Kobe’s logo, the Sheath, is emblazoned on the tongue, and a bright polychromatic melange is found in the inner collar of the shoe. The highly anticipated shoe has an ostentatious mix-and-match aesthetic that alludes to the colorways of previous versions of the Kobe 9 Elite silhouette. The Kobe 9 Elite "What The" sneaker will be available on January 10 at Nike for $225 USD.

Judd Apatow’s 25-Year-Old ‘Simpsons’ Episode Will Finally See the Light of Day


The news: It may have taken 25 years, but one of comedy’s greatest minds is finally making a contribution to one of TV’s best and longest-running comedies. According to an interview with TV Guide, this month Fox will air an episode of The Simpsons that a then-22-year-old Judd Apatow wrote when the now-hit cartoon comedy was just starting out. 

The episode, which will air Jan. 11 and is titled "Bart’s New Friend," tells the story of when Homer gets hypnotized into thinking he’s 10 years old and has "such a great time being Bart’s friend that he doesn’t want to become an adult again," Apatow told TV Guide.

RiFF RAFF to Collaborate with Jordan Brand This Year?

Of all the songs pledging allegiance to Jordan Brand in 2014, RiFF RAFF’s "TiP TOE WiNG iN MY JAWWDiNZ" was perhaps the most tolerable. It would seem that the catchy single snuck its way to Beaverton, as the rapper took to Instagram to reveal a potential forthcoming collaboration with Jordan Brand. According to details from RiFF RAFF, the collaboration will consider the Air Jordan 5 – itself the subject of JB’s concentrations for 2015 – outfitted with black leather and neon hits as they embody the rapper’s forthcoming Peach Panther and Purple Panther albums. Reportedly releasing for $750 USD in limited quantities this summer, Mr. Highroller also revealed that the collaboration will be stocked at Foot Locker, Champs, Footaction, and, perhaps inevitably, Flight Club. Look for the necessary verification on this collaboration as we approach the summer months.
