Nike Introduces a Men’s Version of the Air Huarache Ultra

Well what do we have here? Just a couple of weeks ago we were saying that Nike should make the Air Huarache Ultra for men and, lo and behold, the Swoosh had one prepped all along. Differing a bit from the ladies’ version, the men’s take on the Air Huarache Ultra still opts for a combination of mesh and perforated foam across its upper, but employs supportive overlays that render it much closer, aesthetically, to the Tinker Hatfield-designed original. Like its female-centric predecessor, the new design also employs a cored-out forefoot for a midsole-outsole combo that offers added flexibility — rubber outsole pods only appear at the heel and toe.
Black and "Scream Green" colorways of the Air Huarache Ultra are available now via nike.com while the "Cool Grey" and "Hyper Violet" make-ups are sure to follow. Retail is set at $120 USD per pair.

Jordan Brand Introduces Reflective 3M to the Air Jordan 1 High For All-Star Weekend

With the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend just around the corner, Jordan Brand is preparing for the Toronto takeover with a flashy iteration of the popular Air Jordan 1. Taking cues from established reflective gear brands, JB introduces a special 3M edition of the iconic model’s high top version where a striking Wolf Grey and Metallic Silver graphic-covered leather upper is paired with solid 3M paneling of the same color scheme. The model is contrasted with a subtle white sole and a bright red branded insole. Last year, JB dropped a 3M edition of the Air Jordan 13 Retro Premium, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the brand’s soon-to-be-released All-Star collection will be incorporating reflective detailing for the courts as well.
The Air Jordan 1 High "All-Star 2016" drops February 13 at select Jordan Brand stockists.

Despite rumors that have been making the rounds on the Internet about Kanye West planning to create a tribute album to the late David Bowie, the hip-hop star’s representatives have flatly refuted any plans to bring such an album into reality. This comes after a petition to stop West from doing such a thing, garnering over 5,000 signatures in the process. The rumor was reportedly started by British tabloid paper The Daily Star, but has thankfully come full circle to its conclusion, leaving West to focus on the actual launch of his SWISH album next month.
