Kendrick Lamar Showcases Another Shoe From Reebok

After dominating this year’s music award show season and dropping his third major label studio album to critical acclaim, Kendrick Lamar returns with the Classic Leather Lux. A timeless yet distinctive design, the sneaker is executed in olive green premium leather, representing the Compton saying that “mixing Red and Blue makes Green’; when we come together united we can inspire and encourage growth. The eye-catching green combined with embossed accents of red and blue text on the heel tabs, to symbolize the existing divide between gangs and to emphasize Kendrick’s message of a call for neutrality. A retro gum sole provides an interesting contrast to the muted green upper, and the starcrest tongue branding completes the look in Classic style.

Speaking to the collaboration, Kendrick Lamar said, “Similar to my collaborations with Reebok in the past, I want to create products that provide fans with larger meanings and messages – particularly ones that inspire unity and growth within communities and youth. In Compton, we have a saying that ‘mixing Red and Blue makes Green.’ While ‘green’ is usually thought of in a monetary respect here, this shoe represents a new definition of ‘green’ – community growth. If we work together, we can break down barriers and prosper.”

Available in unisex and kid’s sizes, the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather Lux is available at Reebok.com and limited global retailers from November 25th 2016.

Reebok Teams Up With Hall of Fame To Remake A Classic

Over the years Reebok has teamed up with artists and companies to create a new take on their classic sneakers. Now Hall of Fame is the next brand to collaborate with Reebok to help celebrate the Year of the Question, with their very own 20th anniversary edition of the legendary Allen Iverson signature shoe. Like many of the other collaborators throughout the Question’s big year, the Los Angeles-based sportswear label looks to an important piece of Iverson’s history and style on and off the court for inspiration for their colorway. In this case, Hall of Fame highlights one of AI’s most iconic style statements: his cornrows.

The shoe is constructed in a premium black nubuck upper with woven paneling referencing his braids, all in a deconstructed design with the usual padding removed to create a sleeker, lifestyle-minded silhouette. Further refinements to the Question by Hall of Fame include leather utilized for the lace gillies, inner lining, and sockliner, along with embossed leather branding throughout. Every pair will also come with multiple lace options in Philly’s alternate uniform colors.

The Hall of Fame x Reebok Question Mid launches at Hall of Fame’s LA store and on HallofFameLTD.com this week, and on Reebok.com and select Reebok Classic retailers this Friday, November 11th.

Reebok And JJ Watt Honor The Troops

J.J. Watt’s signature shoe the JJ I is going to get the military treatment in the latest colorway. Even better than being a great shoe to work out in, it is going to help veterans. The JJ I is inspired by J.J.’s appreciation for our servicemen and women, the Military Edition of the ultimate training shoe is created to inspire others to show their support at this time of year.

The JJ I Military Edition also leads the proud partnership between Reebok and the Boot Campaign, which raises awareness of the unique challenges that service members face during and post service (www.bootcampaign.org). The multi-channel marketing push for the JJ I Military Edition features the Boot Campaign throughout, spreading the word for a cause close to the hearts of J.J. and Reebok.

In J.J.’s words: “We as athletes are often the subject of headlines and highlights, when in fact it is the men and women of our military who truly deserve the adoration and praise. I chase a ball around a field for a living. These men and women lay their lives on the line to secure and protect our freedom. They are real American heroes. The JJ I Military Edition was inspired by them and serves as a daily reminder to take advantage of every opportunity this great country has to offer thanks to these men and women. Reebok and I are very proud to support The Boot Campaign and all of the men and women who are so deserving of our respect.”

As well as featuring all the technology that makes the JJ I the ultimate training shoe, the new colorway pays homage to J.J.’s appreciation for our troops with subtle sandstone, brown, and tan colors along with a camouflage outsole and bottom.

Reebok has a longstanding and year-round support for the military. The global fitness brand offers 20% off all product to military, veterans, first responders, and their families throughout the year.

The new JJ I Military Edition will be available on November 11 for $99 at Reebok.com

Reebok Brings A Whole New Dress Code To Sneakers

There are a few true real trend setters. I am talking about the ones who change the way we look at things. Allen Iverson will always be known for single-handedly bringing hip-hop fashion sense and street cred to basketball.  You never saw braids, tattoos, and baggy clothing until AI showed up in the late-90s, and his style would forever change the game – just like his play on the court.

Reebok continues its Year of the Question for 2016 with another special edition of Allen Iverson’s first signature shoe. The Question Mid “Dress Code” features colors and materials pulled from AI’s iconic tastes, specifically blue denim and tan nubuck inspired by his baggy jeans and workboots. Further details include brown leather, white mesh interiors, gum outsoles, and “banned” symbols on each heel.

The Reebok Classic Question Mid “Dress Code” releases Friday, November 4th for $139.99 at Reebok.com and select retailers including Finish Line, Footaction and Champs Sports.

A$AP Ferg Takes Us On A Tour For Halloween In Harlem

Trap Lord A$AP Ferg is all hyped up for Halloween. He recently shot a video where he takes us around Harlem to talk about his favorite memories. From the time when he was a young kid to now A$AP Ferg gives us Halloween Tour of Harlem.

The Most Googled Drink Is…..

Believe it or not it is the Moscow Mule. Not only is it the most searched drink online, but more and more restaurants are serving them too. While everything iconic deserves its moment in the spotlight there’s currently no one day for everyone to celebrate the Moscow Mule which is why SMIRNOFF, the creator of the iconic cocktail, just announced the introduction of Moscow Mule Day which will take place on March 3rd.

SMIRNOFF partnered with Foodimentary, the official source for all food holidays, and chose the date March 3rd or “3-3” to tie back to the fact that there are three ingredients in #TheOriginalMule and there were three people involved in the cocktail’s history. Every year on March 3rd, SMIRNOFF vodka wants adults 21 and over to raise a copper mug to tradition and celebrate the next 75 years and beyond. After all, if it wasn’t for SMIRNOFF, we may never have had the chance to enjoy the classic combination of vodka, ginger beer and lime.

Coinciding with the cocktail’s 75th anniversary, SMIRNOFF vodka hosted a celebration last night on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip – the very place where the Moscow Mule was first introduced to the world (photos and additional details below). During the night, guests were transported back in time to 1941 to experience the cocktail’s history through a part immersive theater part Old Hollywood cocktail party.

From private rooftops that overlook the ballpark to a decked out luxury trailer fit for a Hollywood movie, Airbnb has curated the best listings for fans to hear the roar of the crowd, crack of the bat, see the lights and sights and maybe even catch a homerun ball.
