Sneakerheads pay attention! Reebok Classics is bringing back a one of a kind sneaker. The Question Mid OG was the first pair of shoes that Allen Iverson wore on court. From the pearlized red leather toe, the translucent ice outsole, Reebok’s patented Hexalite technology, and the iconic “Q” logo on the back collar, the Question Mid signaled a new era of basketball with Allen Iverson’s trademark lightning quick moves, cementing him as a true star.
Over the course of his first season, Iverson wowed audiences with a string of 40 point games and earned the title of Rookie of the Year. The Question Mid OG also birthed one of the top moments in Allen’s history, where a rookie Iverson went head to head with Michael Jordan with what became his legendary crossover move. This one play inspired legions of fans as they tried to recreate The Crossover on their own.
The Reebok Classic Question Mid OG will release for $140 on Friday, February 12th at retailers including Reebok.com, Finish Line and Sneaker Villa.
Plus today Reebok Classic released the Question Mid “Prototype” will release for the first time today, Friday, February 5th for $200 at Reebok.com, Packer Shoes and Concepts.
Are you someone that needs to have the perfect tree? Maybe you are the one who wants a unique one. Either way you will get a kick out of the tree that Jack Daniel’s made. It’s a tree that takes shape out of 140 whiskey barrels.
Yet Jack Daniel’s feels that it’s not what’s under the tree that matters, but who is around it. Here are some cool facts on the tree. It is made out of 140 used American White Oak barrels. The barrels weigh approximately 115 pounds each. When full, the barrels weigh approximately 550 pounds. Each barrel holds 53.3 gallons of Tennessee Whiskey.
As a Tennessee Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s only uses its barrels one time for maturation. The barrels are so important to Jack Daniel’s that it is the only major distillery to own its own cooperage. The barrel is responsible for all the color of Jack Daniel’s and more than half its flavor. The barrel tree took approximately one week to construct and was lit at a special Lynchburg holiday celebration on Saturday, December 5th.
Cars and trucks seem to have all the latest upgrades that Tony Stark would be jealous of. What about bikers though? Where is there tech? Well the fine folks at Fusar created the Mohawk. The Mohawk is an action camera, activity tracker, communication device, navigation unit, music player, black box and emergency alert system – all wrapped into one.
It was built by biker enthusiasts and the Mohawk is designed for easy and seamless use across a wide range of action sports. Technology should never get in the way of the experience, and Mohawk is technology made simple. The smart helmet revolution is finally here.
Mohawk is an all-in-one Swiss Army knife of smart helmet technology. It’s equipped with an accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. It’s the most advanced helmet-mounted accessory device ever built.
Fusar also thought of your safety too. Mohawk can detect if you’ve experienced a collision. When a crash has been detected, Mohawk immediately sends out an emergency distress beacon. Their cloud servers then automatically send SMS and email alerts to your emergency contacts, or Guardian Angels. They receive a map with your precise location and the local phone numbers of the three nearest EMS dispatchers.
Check out the video below to see the Mohawk in action. Go to Fusar.com for more info.
The San Diego Comic Con is almost here. There will be some spoilers and teasers leaked at the many of the different junkets. Yet we are finding out more about the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” film from none other than the film’s director Zack Snyder.
Snyder said that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman wouldn’t just be a small role. He said that she is very important to the storyline. “She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she’s the gateway drug to the rest of the Justice League.”
“Dawn of Justice” will be a small glimpse into the DC Comics Justice League movie. Snyder also talked about the issues people had with the “Man of Steel” film. Snyder said, “I was surprised because that’s the thesis of Superman for me, that you can’t just have superheroes knock around and have there be no consequences. There are other superhero movies where they joke about how basically no one’s getting hurt. That’s not us. What is that message? That’s it is okay that there’s this massive destruction with zero consequence for anyone? I remember talking about ‘What’s the next villain? ‘We can’t do another alien invasion.’ Metallo, I think, was going to be the main bad guy of this movie. Brainiac was definitely down the road.”
It looks like Snyder is really open about the future of the DC Comic films. Hopefully more news like this will be revealed in San Diego this week!
AMC released the first two minutes of the “Walking Dead” midseason premiere on Tuesday. In this clip we get an idea of where they might be heading. It looks like a camp near Richmond, Virginia. In the “Walking Dead” comics, the survivors also go to Virginia. It looks as though they might be using some of the comic book story arcs in the end of Season 5.

The new M&M’S® Crispy Milk Chocolate Candies was available for trick-or-treaters this Halloween – but only at one house in the entire country, after being hand-delivered by Scottie Pippen.
M&M’S Crispy has been gone for 10 years, and fans have lobbied so hard for its return we’re bringing it back. M&M’s Crispy officially hits stores in January, but a Chicago fan named Olivia asked through the M&M’S® Brand Facebook page: “Why not make M&M’S® Crispy available at Halloween?”
The brand responded by teaming up with Chicago basketball legend Scottie Pippen to surprise Olivia with a batch of her favorite candy that she could pass out to trick-or-treaters, making hers the only house in the country with M&M’S® Crispy this Halloween.
