Reebok Classic x The FADER’s two-part concert series, Coast to Coast, kicked off on Monday, November 24th at the Holding Co. in Los Angeles with performances from Ab-Soul and Kid Ink, hosted by LA’s Karen Civil. Photos from the event are attached.
This particular concert coincided with the 25th anniversary of the Reebok Pump sneaker on November 24th, the official birthday of the Pump. An iconic technology and style that has graced the feet of athletes, musicians and almost everyone else since the late 80s, the Pump still remains relevant today. To commemorate this anniversary, Ab-Soul wore the distinctive Reebok Classic x Keith Haring Court Victory Pump during his performance.
The Coast to Coast concert series was developed as a platform to integrate music with style. Reebok and The Fader will be hitting both coasts and presenting exclusive artist performances, in addition to pieces of content that document the artists in their home base, which will be live on TheFADER.com later this year.
Up next: one of the hottest rising stars in music, Kiesza, will headline the NYC show on December 3rd. Be sure to visit TheFADER.com for more details, or follow @ReebokClassics and @TheFADER for your chance to win a coveted spot to the next event!
Yesterday, Sunday, November 23rd, Stalley took the stage at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC, to promote his debut studio album “Ohio,” which just released in late October.
Stalley performed his set to a rowdy crowd of fans, while laced in the Reebok Classic “Ventilator” sneakers from the “Tonal Ballistic” pack. The Trophy Gold/Retro Yellow/Black/White colorway of the Ventilator added a pop of color to his monochrome outfit on stage.
This is one of the sickest pair of kicks out there. Reebok Classics and Villa teamed up to shout out one of Philly’s most iconic athlete. I was lucky enough to get this shoe and man…..these are awesome. Well done Reebok and Villa you have outdone yourself. The shoes came out today and if you are thinking about getting them make sure you do it quick. Don’t sleep on this. You could miss out.
Both Reebok Pump and Villa are celebrating 25th year anniversaries this year, so the collaboration needed to be one-of-a-kind. The Pump Question silhouette itself is the perfect marriage of two iconic, game changing innovations and honors the impact both brands have had on sneaker culture.
For this exclusive collaboration, every detail of the shoe pays tribute to Allen Iverson and his relationship with the city of Philadelphia – something no one knows better than Philly based retailer, Villa. The grey and burgundy color way is inspired directly from Villa’s logo and Iverson’s memorable Bentley. Between the LOVE park hangtag and the Liberty Bell logo, it is Iverson and Philadelphia through and through.
Don’t miss your opportunity to grab a pair of the extremely limited Reebok x Villa “A Day in Philly” Pump Question on the Pump’s Official Birthday, 11/24 at Villa and ruvilla.com for $185.
Christmas is fast approaching. You have made the decision to not give out the same old boring gifts like you did last year. Even though people did like getting a new jelly spread every month from you and it is the gift that keeps on giving all year round, you need a new idea. Why not give whiskey to your friends and family who are 21 years of age or older? They will appreciate that more than the apple apricot peppermint marmalade they received this past March.
If you need to know which whiskey to purchase here are few ideas that can help make holiday shopping a bit easier on you!

This fall, Jesse Palmer has teamed up with Unilever men’s brands to help guys take pride in their everyday grooming routines. As a former player and current top color commentator on the new SEC Network, Jesse Palmer knows all about pregame routines both on and off the field.
Calling the most marquee games in some of the biggest stadiums in the country this season, Jesse’s pregame routine is essential to his success, and he relies on a variety of Unilever products to the get the job done, such as Dove Men+Care body wash and Degree deodorant.
Whether it’s tailgating, face painting, or wearing a lucky shirt, college football Saturday is all about taking pride in pregame rituals. However, with all the support fans show for their teams on game day, it is just as important for men to develop strong everyday grooming habits with similar enthusiasm.
“As a former player and current analyst, taking pride in my pregame both on and off the field has been crucial to my success,” Jesse Palmer says, “what sports fans may not know is that my grooming routine is essential for my pregame preparation before a big broadcast too.”
By creating a simplified, one-stop shopping experience where men can find all of their grooming product needs in one place, the partnership is yet another example of how Unilever is revolutionizing the way men shop. Look for the products as well as grooming habits in stores throughout college football season.
I spoke with Jesse today on his work with Unilever, college football, his transition from college to the NFL, and more. Click here to listen to the interview!

For the man who showed us that we can fly, (well maybe him and not us!) Michael Jordan finally gets his own hangar. The expansive Jordan Hangar is situated in an undisclosed nearly 80,000-square-foot plane hangar in west L.A., which was once owned by Howard Hughes and rumored to be where the Spruce Goose was built. Included in the Jordan Hangar are some incredible elements to help raise your game.
A full-size, regulation basketball court, with a stylized silver base and Jordan fractal pattern up and down the floorboards. The brand’s social/digital handle, @jumpman23, runs along the baseline, and CP and Blake’s logos are featured in the paint between the basket and free throw line. Sleek, light-colored, multi-tiered stands rise up beyond the far backboard; and, above the court – more than halfway to the 75-foot-high rafters – is a three-paneled jumbotron, with each panel measuring 100 square feet. Along with featuring games between local high schools, Jordan said the court will be used by Jordan Brand players for offseason training as well as possible future product testing.
Entering the Jordan Hangar, where the hashtag #takeflight in cement greets every high flier on the way in, guests walk down a mini Hollywood Blvd. Walk of Fame, with each Jordan Brand basketball athlete getting their own star. On the wall in front as you turn into the open space: a white wall with artistic carvings of MJ’s accomplishments.
Two performance measurement elements stand out in the hangar as you walk toward the court. The first is The Cube, a 10-foot high, four-sided box, with a video screen on each side. Players can grab a ball and test their skills while mimicking the timed, repetitive on-screen drills performed by the athlete on-screen, all moves Chris Paul himself uses in-game – including his famous jab step and the beginnings of his crossover. During the drill, a voice from the box counts down the time the player must continue that move, as well as hints on how to improve throughout. Moving from The Cube toward the court is a runway, launch and landing pad measuring a player’s jump, calculating the pounds of force generated on liftoff. Through sensors on the pad, the information comes up within seconds on the screen.
The Jordan Hangar also features two NBA-style locker rooms with a dozen lockers each: one locker room for CP, another for Blake. Each player has a dedicated locker, complete with golden nameplate, which are reserved solely for their use. The locker room has a lounge with leather chairs, couches and a 75-inch flat-screen TV, set up for NBA 2K matchups.
Plus here is a video that gives you even more access to the Jordan Hangar.
