Nike’s SB Dunk High Gets a Buttery “Waffle” Colorway

Nike has given its SB Dunk High silhouette a premium overhaul inspired by the undisputed G.O.A.T. of breakfast foods: waffles. This particular rendition of the classic skate shoe features a tonal wheat-colored upper — complete with a waffle-woven fabric — a chicken-and-waffles graphic on the insole, and a syrupy Swoosh. Technically speaking, the buttery kicks feature the SB Dunk’s flexible outsole for greater board control rendered in a dark gum and a lightweight mesh tongue for greater breathability.
These decadently delicious kicks drop on April 2. Until then, is anyone else hungry? How about brunch?

Is This the adidas Yeezy Boost 550 “Black” Colorway?

Is This the adidas Yeezy Boost 550 “Black” Colorway?

The rumored adidas Yeezy Boost 550 is still a mystery for all intents and purposes. We’ve seen what we thought was the shoe on French Montana during a video shoot with Kanye himself a couple weeks back. Still, no confirmation from West or adidas has followed.

Here, what we assume could be the model returns in an all-black colorway. The same Yeezy midsole is noted below and the upper, slightly differing from the adidas Yeezy Boost 350, features a wider foot opening above the streamlined lacing system.

Nike Brings Back the Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 “USA”

With Nike intent on re-releasing Kobe classics this year and the Rio Olympics looming on the horizon, the Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 "USA" makes a timely return for 2016. The silhouette’s patriotic OG make up follows the drop of its recent “All-Star” and “MPLS” counterparts, and comes packed with familiar features like a suede upper with an integrated ankle strap, sock-like inner sleeve, Zoom Air units and solid rubber outsole for traction. With its stripped-down, yet supportive design, light weight and responsive cushioning, the Eric Avar design became immensely popular with everyone from Kobe Bryant to recreational league players when it debuted just over a decade ago, and the latest retro of the modern hardwood icon should garner some interest from sneakerheads and hoops enthusiasts alike. Take a look at the Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 "USA" here, and look for its release very soon at Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.

Healthy Foods That Will Give You Energy All Day Long

By Kathleen Wong

Just about everyone caught in the daily grind could use a boost of energy — clearly, since in 2013, productiveness-promised energy drinks became the fastest-growing segment of the beverage industry, according to the New York Times.

Other than a short burst of energy, there are few benefits to energy drink consumption. The main ingredient in these elixirs — caffeine — inhibits the brain’s calming process, and in turn can amp up stress and anxiety, according to the Washington Post. Their high levels of sugar also cause blood sugar levels to spike and crash.

But there are foods that naturally contain amino acids that affect neurotransmitters to make the brain feel focused and happy, the Washington Post reported. Eating smaller, more balanced meals more regularly — rather than just noshing out come dinnertime — helps regulate blood glucose levels for even energy expenditure throughout the day, according to the BBC. No cup of joe needed.

This food mantra has been uttered before, but carbs do provide energy — complex carbs, that is, according to the BBC. That includes whole grains, nuts and oats, which translate into almonds and oatmeal. Simple carbohydrates in the form of natural foods like fruits that are high in sugar, and refined foods like cakes and white flours, can cause energy rushes and drops.

Combinations of protein, fiber and carbs are a good bet. Beans are nutrient-packed examples, consisting of carbs, proteins and fiber to keep its consumers full and with lasting energy,Greatistreported. The fiber helps regulate blood sugar. Other great choices are Greek yogurt and quinoa.

B vitamins also play a key role in turning food into energy, the BBC reported. These can be found in avocados, eggs and beans — which is one of many fine reasons to enjoy some huevos rancheros more often, according to the Washington Post.

Fatigue is often linked to iron deficiency since iron increases red blood cell circulation, which increases alertness, according to Business Insider. Foods rich in iron include good ole spinach, lentils, liver and chickpeas.
