The Air Jordan 5 OG Black/Metallic Is Returning This Summer

With rumors swirling around for a couple months now regarding the possible return of the Air Jordan 5 in black and metallic, Sole Collector is reporting an official release date of July 23. The last time we saw this particular model was way back in 2011, however this year’s rendition will return to the ’90s with “Nike Air” branding on the heel and the departure of the “23″ embroidery around the ankle. We’re also assuming July’s release will receive slightly updated materials, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

The Air Jordan 5 Black/Metallic will release on July 23 for $220 USD.

A First Teaser Look at the Next BAPE x PUMA Collaboration

Today we get a very first teaser look at the next collaboration between A BATHING APE and German sportswear brand PUMA. Having worked together for the first time late last year, the two brands worked on both footwear and a full apparel collection. With products selling out instantly across the globe, we are not surprised to see the two at it again. Also they once again tapped Italian soccer star Mario Balotelli to model the new offering. For now we only see a multicolor BAPE camo football jersey, but you can be sure that there is an entire BAPE x PUMA capsule collection to go along with it. This time around though, the collection is exclusive to BAPE Japan flagship stores, with a release set for May 28.

Pharrell & adidas Are Dropping Their Second “Pink Beach” Range This Week

“Awaken in a dreamscape…”

Pharrell and the Three Stripes are back at it, following up last week’s “Pink Beach” debut with a second take on the dreamscape theme for Spring/Summer 2016. Once again “inspired by soulful, luminous vibes from sunny island spirit,” the second “Pink Beach” delivery takes cues from Pharrell’s passion for music, art, and fashion alike, offering boldly-printed island forest-inspired bikinis, chiffon track tops, and water-resistant laminated mesh ponchos with Hawaiian shirts, board shorts, tees and varsity jackets. Like the first release, part two is bookended with both the Elastic Slip On and Elastic Lace Up — both of which see black and blue colorways for their stretch patched-tape uppers this time around.

Stay tuned for a look at the corresponding kid-centric release and look for the second “Pink Beach” delivery to hit adidas Originals stockists this Thursday, May 12.


adidas Originals Gives the 1991 EQT a Modern Rework

In a fresh, triple white.

adidas Originals is currently working on a modern rework of the classic EQT line from 1991, the EQT 91-16. The sneaker features an all-white Primeknit upper, tasteful branding across the lace lock and tongue, as well as the classic three stripes which subtly run from the sole to the eyelets. The final look is unique, resembling certain elements of the popular adidas NMD and Nike Roshe. As far as we know, the only colorway underway is the Triple White, however there are speculation of khaki, pink and black to be released later. No clear date has been announced, but the EQT 91-16 is said to drop later this year.

Someone Is Leaking the Plot of Every New ‘Game of Thrones’ Episode Online

A full two days before each episode of Game of Thrones‘ sixth season airs, an anonymous Spanish-speaking web user has been leaking entire elements of said episodes’ plots to YouTube, Tech Insider reported on Saturday.

HBO has responded by yanking the spoiler-filled videos from YouTube, and is presumably looking into how details of upcoming episodes are ending up on the web.

According to Tech Insider, the “Spanish Spoiler” has found a home on one of Reddit’s online communities dedicated to the A Song of Ice and Fire series, /r/FreeFolk. There, he (or someone claiming to be him) admitted he had a spoiler conection” that was “just three weeks old” as of earlier this week.

“I am very concerned about [my notoriety] because I don’t want to risk [my] source,” he wrote in another post. “This is a hobby for me, so it ends when YouTube bans me forever or when it stops being entertaining, or someone has to pay the consequences.”

None of the videos actually feature any copyrighted material from the show itself, the anonymous leaker added, and at one point he also posted to /r/FreeFolk asking if posting them actually violate any YouTube policies.

Last year, four of season five’s first episodes leaked weeks early after HBO sent out preview DVDs to members of the press, prompting a critical re-evaluation of whether media companies could still rely upon the discretion of reviewers. That prompted the show’s creators to opt out of sending them out before this season.

So whoever the Spanish Spoiler is, he likely has some kind of contact tied to the production of the series… or, to put it another way, knows one of Lord Varys’ little birds.
