adidas Gives the Tubular Nova an All-Red Makeover

The all-red trend seemed to have come and gone, but the "Red October" look is back with a vengeance given the Chinese New Year — and the fact that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The latest shoe to get the look: the low-top Tubular Nova from adidas Originals. Eschewing the faux snakeskin of the "Luxe Textile" pack, the monochromatic design features the same construction as its black and "Vintage White" predecessors, opting for a neoprene upper and textile lining with pigskin suede overlays.
Look for the new Novas to hit Three Stripes stockists like Berlin’s Overkill this Thursday, February 11.

Maxwell Says He Will Release His New Album blackSUMMERS’night This Summer

Maxwell Says He Will Release His New Album blackSUMMERS'night This Summer

Maxwell last released BLACKsummers’night in summer 2009. It was promised as the first part in a trilogy of albums, but he’s yet to release its follow-up. Now, in an interview with Essence, he has said that the second part, blackSUMMERS’night, will come out this summer. Arriving seven years after the first part, the new album will also mark the 20-year anniversary of his debut album, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite. Read the full interview here and check out some excerpts below.

When asked, "So, blackSUMMMER’snight is coming?!" he said:

I’m so hyped about the new album coming out, which is so exciting for me, because it’s fresh and it’s different, but it is what I do. It doesn’t make you feel like, oh, yeah, that’s going to come out in 1996. You’re not going to feel that. At least I hope you don’t. (Laughs.)

When asked about how long he’s worked on the album for, he said:

I’m at the point with the album where it’s just like … With the passing of my cousin, and my grandmother passing away … Me turning 40, and being 42 now, and having a whole sort of new milestone in my life, where a lot of my mind is grown up, and I’m thinking in terms of the next 10 years, and what I’m going to try to do for the next 10 years, which is something I never really … I mean, I did it, but I’m not doing it as much as I do now. I’m just hyped. We have two and a half years of just consistent, around the world, going everywhere, traveling, doing shows…It’s funny, because I remember reading Marvin Gaye’s biography when I was, like, 17 years old, Divided Soul. He always said something that really stuck with me. He said, "You can rush to fail, or you can take your time to succeed." I’m happy that I haven’t exhausted people’s visions to the point where they’ll never want to listen to me.

Maxwell has also said the first single from the album will be a song called "Lake by the Ocean." Other track titles include, "Hostage," "Orphan," "Three," "Lost," and "Listen Here."

Kevin Durant Goes Behind the Camera at Super Bowl 50

If you were watching Super Bowl 50 last night and noticed a gangly Kevin Durant nestled among the on-field photographers, your eyes weren’t fooling you. As The Player’s Tribune reported last year, Durant is an aspiring shooter off the court with a strong affinity for inspiring imagery. Well, the All-Star forward re-linked with the online sports platform to capture the Bronco’s win through the lens of his own Canon 7D.
I came to Super Bowl 50 with two tickets: one for my regular seat … and a press pass with my name on it. When I was invited by The Players’ Tribune and the NFL to be a credentialed photographer on the sidelines during the Super Bowl, I said “I’ll do it” before they even finished their question. Seriously, that’s a dream offer. Like most people, I’ve watched the Super Bowl on TV every year of my life. The way the NBA schedule is, it’s almost impossible to get to go to the Super Bowl in person. This year I got lucky that 1) We were in the Bay already and 2) We had an off day Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t know if that timing will ever work out again while I’m in the league.
Head over to The Players’ Tribune to see Durant’s full selection of pictures, as well as his thoughts about the game, being a sports photographer and more.
