The Jordan Eclipse is the latest sportswear offering that takes cues from some of the iconic Jordan basketball models. The Eclipse tooling along with the iconic Jumpman logo on the heel are drawn directly from the Air Jordan III, one of the most iconic offerings in the brands history.
Unlike traditional footwear design, the low-top features a deconstructed textile upper allowing for lightweight breathability, while the Neoprene tongue provides a moldable fit. The Jordan Eclipse’s low-profile injected midsole doubles as the outsole and holds an encapsulated Zoom Air component in the heel for optimal cushioning and support. The herringbone-pattern outsole provides great traction on a variety of surfaces.
The Jordan Eclipse will be available globally at Jordan.com and at select retailers on April 1. Stay tuned to @Jumpman23 in the coming months for additional colorway launches.
Thump Keg Brewing Co. debuts its beer line with two beers: the Rye IPA in collaboration with George Dickel Whisky and the Agave Amber Ale in collaboration with Peligroso Tequila. Both the Rye IPA and Agave Amber Ale uses inventive brewing techniques by pairing the same foundation ingredients as its collaboration partner spirits brands. While the Thump Keg line does not contain distilled spirits, Agave Amber Ale and Rye IPA are rich in flavor and complexity, providing a new taste experience for casual beer drinkers and beer enthusiasts alike.
Each kindred brew balances the refreshing-tasting character of a beer with a flavor complexity inspired by brilliantly distilled and carefully selected spirits. The Agave Amber Ale’s adventurous taste comes from the same signature blue agave used in the distillation of the award-winning, super-premium Peligroso Tequila. The Rye IPA receives a similar influence from George Dickel Whisky – the only rye whisky finished the Dickel way: chilled, then charcoal mellowed. The same underlying grains used in the whisky’s distillation are used to create the mash bill for the Rye IPA.
Here is a breakdown of the two beers.

Reebok and Kendrick Lamar stopped people right in their tracks in LA when they combined fitness and music. Lamar and Reebok surprised hundreds of runners. They all were in complete shock when Kendrick Lamar started to perform. The event took place in a parking lot at Sunset and Hilldale for a Reebok run. Kendrick and a full band rolled up on a sixteen wheeler, flatbed truck to provide live music for all the runners.
Lamar was rocking the ZPump Fusion shoe, which launched on March 10th. The runners followed along and formed a dramatic convoy as they were flanked by police outriders and camera crews.
Lamar played some fan favorites and they runners went crazy. Even other people that weren’t looking to run joined the rap star’s caravan. Then Lamar even hosted an after party at the Reebok Lounge.
“Reebok and I have a shared goal to inspire, so helping people to get pumped though music and fitness was perfect – performing in such a unique way, creating a real experience and encouraging people through a run in my hometown of LA. Partnering with Reebok, we always want to do something different and that will get people moving and this is an example of us coming together to create something special” said Kendrick Lamar.
As Jordan Brand celebrates Air Jordan’s 30th Anniversary, it derives inspiration from this year’s All-Star weekend and the famous host city and Michael Jordan’s birthplace to produce a classic Air Jordan X color.
The Air Jordan 10 Retro was created through Jordan Brand’s remastering initiative, a new manufacturing process used to produce retro sneakers that are closer to their originals in terms of quality, look and feel. Among the first retro sneakers to be remastered, the Air Jordan 10 Retro pay homage to the concrete jungle and its historic impact on the Jordan Brand’s enduring legacy.
Proving he was still a force to be reckoned with on the hardwood, Jordan put up 55 points against New York, leaving no question that he was, indeed, back. The “Double Nickel” was originally a player exclusive pair worn by MJ in a few games after he came out of retirement in 1995 while wearing jersey number 45.
There is a new clothing line from the collaboration of the Roots of Fight and Under Armour. This new clothing line looks to pay homage to the boxing greats. It looks to showcase the dedication it took for these guys to become icons in the world of boxing. You can purchase collection at rootsoffight.com, ua.com, and select retail locations.
Many sports fans know about Under Armour and their line of sporting equipment and clothes. Some might not have heard of the company Roots of Fight. Roots of Fight is a lifestyle media and apparel brand that leads with story by paying tribute to the rich history and tradition of martial arts from around the globe. Each discipline is anchored to iconic fighters like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Bruce Lee to represent the past with a view for the contemporary scale and evolution of combat sports.
This collection has shirts and hoodies that are perfect for training like a champ or when you are out and about. They pay tribute to Muhammad Ali, who is a true legend in the ring and out. His influence transcends sport; he has inspired and captivated the world for generations with his charisma, charm and character.
Under Armour and Roots Of Fight pay tribute to Mike Tyson, who was nicknamed the Baddest Man on the Planet. From his Brooklyn roots, a young Kid Dynamite rose to become the undisputed heavy weight champion of the world and one of the greatest to ever lace them up.
This collection also has some great gear for the ladies too!
Last month during NYC Restaurant Week, a production crew invited young adults 21-and-older a sneak peek at a new bar in Brooklyn, weeks before its official opening. On tap was a smooth, crisp golden lager, aged over beechwood, that has boasted the same recipe for 139 years – and only after guests sampled the beer did they find out they were drinking Budweiser. Yes, the King of Beers.
Check out the video for their reaction.
Cords and wires are starting to become things of the past. Thanks to Bluetooth technology we can enjoy most of our gadgets without the inconveniences of strings. Still some companies have mastered the art of wireless tech more than others. One of those companies that has mastered this art is a European manufacturer named XQISIT. These guys have made some dynamic sounding and trendsetting looking headphones with their LZ380 line.
Not only do these headphone deliver incredible sound, but they are noise canceling too. The LZ380 has a fine matte, brushed finish on its casing. The flexible, padded ear cups are soft and doesn’t give you a headache after a few hours of use. That was the issue I was running into with my other headphones. My previous headphones not only gave me a headache, but the sound was very inferior to that of the XQISIT LZ380 pair.
These headphones are very user friendly. The right ear cup has a touch panel where you can fast forward or repeat song while using Bluetooth. If you feel the need to use a cord the LZ380 does come with a few attachments. These cords can aid you if you are looking to use them on an airplane or laptop that doesn’t have Bluetooth capabilities. These headphones works with Bluetooth 3.0 and can pair up with iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini, iPhone 5 and 6. Plus there are a ton of non-Apple products that it works with like the Galaxy Note, Lumia, and many more. Chances are that the LZ380 will sync up with whichever device you have.
These headphones have a 10-hour lifespan and you can recharge them using a USB port. It takes two hours for them to fully recharge. These headphones are legit. If you are looking to get more info check out their site at http://www.xqisit.com.

This week at Spring Studios in New York City, Reebok hosted the launch of one of its boldest running shoes to date: the ZPump Fusion.
The event was kicked off with a presentation from Reebok President Matt O’Toole and Reebok Head of Advanced Concepts Bill McInnis describing the inspiration behind the shoe and its technology. Key guests who helped celebrate the launch included Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hannah Davis who took part in the presentation in a fresh pair of ZPump Fusions, and Entourage star Adrian Grenier who was in the audience in the new running shoes as well. Top UFC stars Jon Jones, Conor McGregor and Paige VanZant were also in attendance, along with UFC President Dana White.
After the presentation ended, attendees and celebrity guests were invited to catch a sneak-peak at upcoming ZPump Fusion color ways in the specially designed “Future Room.” After lacing up, attendees were able to truly wear test the shoes in a specially constructed obstacle course that tested their agility and speed in a one-of-a-kind 4D multimedia experience.
Unlike traditional running shoes which are often made up of over 40 individual parts, the ZPump Fusion is constructed from just three, which means no unnecessary components or rigid parts to restrict movement in the foot. It’s also one of the first running shoes to provide a fully customizable fit, thanks to Pump technology that adapts to your foot.
The ZPump Fusion will be available on Tuesday, March 10th for $110 from retailers including Finish Line and reebok.com
