Shaq And Jay Versace Take A Trip Down Memory Lane Thanks To Reebok Classics

Reebok Classic dropped a sweet new film that sees the legendary Shaquille O’Neal take Reebok partner Jay Versace on the ultimate tour of his Florida home to celebrate the re-release of the 90s original, the Aztrek.

In the film, the OG brand partner and Jay kick things off in Shaq’s ‘Accolade Room,’ where the sports icon and YouTube sensation talk through some of Shaq’s career defining moments. The duo’s conversation touches on a range of subject matters, merging personal ambitions and success with style in the pursuit of personal expression.

Reebok Classic fiercely believes that personal ambitions are set by the individual and exist without limitation, mirrored by Shaq who embodied this philosophy in the 90s, and still represents this. Known for his love of 90s style apparel and footwear, it was only natural for Jay to quiz Shaq on the sartorially daring decade. Together, Jay and Shaq champion Reebok’s retro history through a contemporary lens, demonstrating how bold ambitions from the 90s live on today.

Throughout the video, Shaq and Jay are styled in the Aztrek, a heritage silhouette that embodies the spirt of the decade. With its chunky sole and vibrant paneling, the runner became a symbol of those pushing style boundaries and challenging the sartorial norms. With its unparalleled heritage that remains a constant source of inspiration for the modern style outlier, Reebok remains at the forefront of contemporary style.

The Aztrek’s trailblazing design, engineering, and color patterns changed the game for running sneakers, going on to forge a legendary reputation at Reebok. It’s style zeitgeist remains at the forefront of what Reebok Classic stands for today, seeking to inspire individuals to take a different path.

Fall In Love With This New Guinness Cocktail

Believe it or not Halloween is right around the corner. You know what else coming up? International Stout Day, which is on November 3rd. We wanted to share with you the perfect *pint* holiday cocktail.

Legend has it, a Guinness cocktail called Black velvet was originally created after the death of Prince Albert, the husband and consort of Queen Victoria in 1861.

At Brooks’s, a private society clubhouse in London, the steward requested for the Champagne to be dressed in black, in mourning of the Prince’s passing. Since the cocktail drink was initially created, Black Velvet has become a timeless cocktail requested year round.

Black Velvet

A curiously silky, velvety drink where the effervescence and dry biscuit notes of sparkling wine provide a curious coupling with Guinness Extra Stout, served in a Champagne flute for a touch of decadence. A picture of the drink is attached!

Ingredients

Half a flute of Champagne

Half a flute of Guinness Extra Stout

Nike And Converse Celebrate The Art Of The Champion

To celebrate the start of the 2018-19 NBA season Converse is relaunching 4 iconic shoes form the Art of a Champion series, a collection of sixteen individual artist interpretations that celebrate sixteen timeless performances by sixteen of the game’s greatest champions.

Before joining the NBA, Dr. J’s mastery of the physical world was virtually unknown, except to those from the courts of Harlem. That all changed with one smooth move in Game 4 of the 1980 Finals. Driving to the baseline halfway through the 4th quarter, he raised the ball high with one hand, teasing the Lakers defense before bringing it back under the hoop and scooping it off the glass. While Dr. J and the Sixers didn’t go on to win the series, his move in the All- Star’s brought the fabled flair and flash of Harlem basketball to the NBA.

Trailing 2-1 to the Lakers in the 1984 Finals, the Boston Celtics needed a spark. As LA’s Kurt Rambis attempted to finish a dunk on a fast break, Kevin McHale, committed a dangerous foul that sent the Laker to the floor and caused a heated brawl between the rival teams. Credited by several Lakers as the reason for their defeat in the game and that series, McHale’s play caused them to become fixated on retaliation rather than victory in what has become a storied rivalry of East versus West. With the hard foul, McHale made a statement in the fast-break’s; when the championship is on the line, there will be no easy buckets.
