Next month is when we all scramble around to see what we can do to woo that special someone for Valentine’s Day. If you are picking up your date and are hoping to get lucky here are some cars that Cars.com suggests to pick up your sweet Valentine in! It might help your chances.
With four-corner air suspension and a RamBox, a thoughtful husband or boyfriend can store six dozen roses and 72 boxes of chocolate in the two lockable storage bins. He can even lower the entire truck several inches to make it easier on his date if she’s wearing a fancy dress, along with dropping a 4×6 air mattress in the back to do some star-gazing.
Christian Grey drives one in “Fifty Shades of Grey” (both the book and the movie that just so happens to open on Valentine’s Day). ‘Nuff said.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet
There’s nothing more romantic than a top-down moonlight cruise and what better car to do it in than a luxury convertible. The E-Class Cabriolet has power, style and a premium, snuggle-friendly interior. Equipped with the optional AirScarf system, it even pipes warm air to the back of your neck. You’re in charge of whispering sweet nothings, however.
An affordable ride doesn’t always have to mean cheap dates. The Sonata has a rare feature among family sedans – a panoramic moonroof – so you can take in the city lights in a night out on the town without the cold-weather exposure that a convertible top incurs. It is February, after all.
Hot-stone massage … in a car? Yes, who needs to go to the spa when there’s a masseuse, of sorts, in this Mercedes-Benz. The premium package adds heated, ventilated and most importantly, massaging front seats. What could be more relaxing on a date night than dialing up one of six massage programs, including one that has a “hot stone” effect.
Maybe you’re a little more practical-minded when it comes to expressions of love. Well, nothing makes a spouse happier than a completed honey-do list. Help knock off some to-do’s off the list with the redesigned Subaru Outback, recently crowned Cars.com’s “Best New Wagon of 2015.” This wagon makes quick work of chores with its sizable cargo area.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Ventilator, Reebok is releasing a brand new iteration of this closet staple. A favorite of Reebok’s newest asset Kendrick Lamar, the Ventilator Reflective is a stylish new edition to the Ventilator collection.

Today, Reebok issued a bold challenge to the world to “Be More Human” with its new, fully-integrated marketing campaign, continuing the global fitness brand’s mission to change how people perceive and experience fitness. “Be More Human” goes beyond a campaign or a tagline; it’s a rally cry to live up to your full potential. This unique point of view is embodied in the brand’s new symbol, the Reebok Delta. The three sides represent the physical, mental and social change that comes through living a fitness lifestyle.
In our hyper technology-driven world, Reebok celebrates everyday people who have reconnected to a rugged physicality that allows them to live much bigger, fuller and less self-focused lives. For these individuals fitness isn’t just a physical activity – it’s something that enhances not only their body, but their entire life. Through fitness they become better parents, better leaders, better teachers, better partners and overall a better, stronger version of themselves.
“Reebok believes that by pushing ourselves to the brink and testing our limitations, we have the power to transform ourselves not only physically but also mentally and socially”, said Matt O’Toole, Reebok Brand President. “By adopting such a lifestyle, you find yourself in a community of people, joined together by a common purpose – to be better versions of themselves. We’re confident that when we push ourselves, we not only transform our bodies, we transform our entire lives.”
The brand film titled “Freak Show”, available at www.reebok.com/bemorehuman acknowledges that tough fitness is a lifestyle not always understood. Its methods are intense, demanding and require real commitment. “Freak Show” is a celebration of those who have chosen to be more than they thought they could be through fitness. It is a challenge to those yet to be converted to Be More Human.
Mountain Dew believes that every epic adventure should have an equally epic kick start. Today, the brand introduced two new bold flavors of Mtn Dew Kickstart – Pineapple Orange Mango and Strawberry Kiwi – fusing an energizing blast of DEW® with real fruit juice, coconut water and just the right amount of kick. With only 60 calories per 12 oz. can, these two new flavors are perfect for sparking a damn good time, anytime, anywhere.
To kick-off the launch and show DEW Nation how everything gets pumped up when you crack open a can, Mtn Dew Kickstart will premiere its “Come Alive” television commercial, featuring ”Out The Speakers Feat Rich Kidz” by A-Trak and Milo & Otis and So You Think You Can Dance alum D-Trix, during the Super Bowl XLIX Pre-Game Show.
The beloved ‘French Blue’ Air Jordan 7 Retro returns newly remastered. The premium white tumbled leather upper is accented with French Blue, Flint Grey and University Blue. Get yours on January 24 on Nike.com (10am EST/7am PST).The Air Jordan VII French Blue was first released in 2002.

The Air Jordan 1 “Hare” is coming back this year. The shoe is inspired by the Air Jordan 7, which is the Jordan sneaker that will be showcased in 2015. The sneaker is a reference to the Bugs Bunny/Michael Jordan connection that was frequently used in TV and print ads in the early 90s. The “Hare” Jordan 1 Mid will release in later this year.
In 1990, Reebok released one of their most timeless running designs: the Ventilator. Incorporating Hexalite technology into the shoe to provide greater comfort and better shock absorption it was the perfect shoe for the faster, lighter runner. The durable lugged outsole was designed to give sure-footed traction for both on and off-road running. The visible archbridge in the middle of the shoe was perfectly placed to offer optimum motion control. And the name Ventilator? That came from the ventilated side panels that allowed cooling and breathability. The shoe was ahead of its time.
Twenty-five years later the shoe is a classic. Still as light as it ever was but now worn for street fashion instead of road running. As Reebok celebrates 25 years of the Ventilator in 2015, three of the original colorways return in their true form; stitch for stitch and perfectly color matched for authenticity. Reebok’s newest member, Kendrick Lamar, has been seen rocking this authentic Reebok shoe. Once again, Reebok goes back to its heritage and reintroduces a timeless Classic.
To help reintroduce these classic trainers, Reebok asked renowned photographer, Jonathan Mannion, to capture what he saw as the essence of the Ventilator via product photography.
Quote from Jonathan Mannion:
“When asked by Reebok to creatively interpret and photograph the shoe, I was presented with a unique challenge; with a shoe that has so many intriguing design elements, what element best defines the entire shoe? Ultimately, I focused on the shoe’s most unique element, the mesh ventilation. My approach to shooting was much like I’d approach shooting a car; focusing on the silhouette of the object and the way the design interacted with air. By accentuating the mesh through light, I hoped to achieve an iconic picture that honored the timelessness of the shoe.
Incorporating the Starcrest logo from the tongue label was also at the forefront of the project for me. Drawing inspiration from its shape, I decided to recreate the logo using the actual shoes. As Reebok celebrates 25 years of the Ventilator, focusing on the Starcrest was a way to honor Reebok’s iconic logo while referencing its storied history in running.”
The first style from the Ventilator OG pack in chalk/grey/green will launch on Saturday, January 17th for $109.99 at retailers including Reebok.com, Sneaker Politics, Bait, Packer Shoes, Major and Wish.
Originally released back in 1999, this Air Jordan 4 Retro colorway returns, remastered. A premium white tumbled leather upper is accented by Midnight Navy and Legend Blue. Get yours on January 10 on Nike.com (10am EST/7am PST).
