Asymmetrical reinforcements give the toe area an off-kilter vibe. From the track to the streets, the Aztrek remains true to its Classic heritage, with its effortless blend of ‘90s attitude and authentic performance, this Reebok Classic slots right back into the roster like it never left.

Deadpool 2 Is All That And More

Ryan Reynolds was made to play the role of Deadpool. Whoever leaked the first footage of Deadpool way back when (wink-wink) pulled off a genius move. Deadpool made us all laugh and feel funny in all parts of our body. It was a different kind of superhero movie.

I couldn’t wait to see the sequel and see all of the Easter Eggs in this film. The dialogue is fantastic and so is the action.

If you don’t believe me, just read the “synopsis” of the film! Deadpool 2 is a film you need to add to your collection.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Kevin Hart And Pharrell Williams Headline The 2018 NBA All-Star Game

The NBA announced today that comedy superstar Kevin Hart, 11-time Grammy Award winner Pharrell Williams and N.E.R.D will headline the 2018 NBA All-Star Game entertainment on Sunday, Feb. 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.  The 67th annual game will air live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT and will be seen by fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages.

Prior to the game, Hart and special guests will take the All-Star stage for an exciting opening and an entertaining introduction of the All-Star teams.  Hart is about to embark on his worldwide IRRESPONSIBLE tour, with dates announced later this month.  He was most recently nominated for a 2017 Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album (What Now?).  Hart is also a four-time MVP and former coach of the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

The Air Jordan XXXII Launches Tomorrow

Tomorrow you can get your hands on the latest version of the Air Jordan shoe line. The Air Jordan XXXII launches at 10 am EST.

“We’ve always explored new materials and technology to create the best game shoe. That was evident when we went to Italy to make the II, and it still rings true today. On the XXXII, we challenged our designers to push the limits while staying true to the brand’s DNA,” says Michael Jordan

In the history of the Air Jordan lineage, there’s always been a balance between innovation and style. For instance, the Air Jordan II is as famous for its sophisticated Italian look as it is for its innovative sole unit. The lightweight nubuck and mesh-filled cutouts of the IV displayed swagger, but were chosen more for inherent performance benefit. And the decision to use a patent-leather upper for the XI was a first choice as much for the material’s resiliency as it was for its suit-ready vibe. The list goes on, through the all-new Air Jordan XXXII, a shoe inspired by the essence of the Air Jordan II, but filled with its fair share of more-than-meets-the-eye tech.

While the Air Jordan II’s luxury leathers, textures and shaping most evidently express craft, what’s underfoot best explains the shoe’s true place in the Jordan evolution. At the time, the sole unit, which relies on a direct-injection PU, required Italian ingenuity — and subsequently brought NIKE, Inc. a step forward in footwear design and engineering. Similarly, the Air Jordan XXXII benefits from a deep Nike mastery in proprietary knits for the first-of-its-kind Flyknit upper with high-tenacity yarn.

“With Jordan shoes, we obsess the style in a way that puts many of the performance elements under the hood, so to speak,” explains the XXXII’s designer, Tate Kuerbis. “For example, I wanted to make the laces just disappear into the knit structure, but inside there is a whole harness system with webbing that really locks down your foot.”

Formed with high-tenacity yarns, the Air Jordan XXXII’s Flyknit upper propels a new level of performance and comfort for on-court shoes. More flexible than any previous Jordan upper, the XXXII’s knit structure reduces stiffness at the forefoot and modernizes the moccasin-like toe box of the Jordan II. The digital craft of the knit is balanced by a more traditional application of a molded leather or suede at the heel counter — a feature that underscores a level of sport luxury that’s been tied to Jordan DNA since the II.

The articulated collar references Jordan’s six titles “We start with athlete insights at the heart of everything we do,” says Jordan Brand VP of Design David Creech. “We craft every detail from macro to micro, obsessing fit, form and function. Thirty years ago, they obsessed those same details when designing the AJ II, which led to the premium materials and the innovative style of Italy. Our goal with the AJ XXXII was to combine the essence of the AJ II with today’s best innovation to create a distinct design language both on and off the court.”

“The Air Jordan game shoe line has always produced some of my favorite shoes,” says Jordan family member and reigning MVP Russell Westbrook. “The XXXII is a great combination of performance and style. The way I play demands that I have the best performing sneaker on my feet and style is something that is engrained in me as a person and player.”

Air Jordan XXXII Rosso Corsa launches September 23 and for the first time, the Air Jordan XXXII will launch globally in a mid and low version.

Rickie Fowler Teams Up With Mercedes-Benz

Rickie Fowler just upgraded his ambassador game. He is now the official spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz. News recently came in from Mercedes-Benz that Rickie Fowler is now a global brand ambassador and will wear the star for the first time during the U.S. Open Championship this week. From the sporty CLA to the iconic G-Class and the awe-inspiring Mercedes-AMG GT S, Rickie has already driven a wide variety of Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG vehicles. This week during the U.S. Open Rickie will be driving a Mercedes-AMG G 65.

“I am pleased to expand my relationship with the brand on a global scale,” said Rickie Fowler. “Mercedes-Benz products continue to set the benchmark in the automotive industry, and this clearly parallels my ambition to lead on the golf course. I will proudly wear the iconic Mercedes-Benz star on my clothing and I’m excited to continue to have the latest models in my driveway.”

The 27-year-old golf professional is ranked number five in the world, won The Players Championship in 2015 and finished all four majors in 2014 in the top five. Rickie joins two-time major winner Martin Kaymer and German golf legend Bernhard Langer as global brand ambassadors.

Mercedes-Benz has been active in the sport of professional golf since the 1980’s. Between 2008 and 2013, Mercedes-Benz was the ‘International Partner’ of the most prestigious golf tournament in the world, the Masters in Augusta, and since 2014 Mercedes-Benz is one of the three ‘Global Sponsors’ of the Masters. As a result of its partnership with the PGA of America, the brand with the three-pointed star has been the ‘Official Vehicle’ and ’Official Patron’ of the PGA Championship, the Senior PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup when it is held in the United States since 2009.

In 2011, through a partnership with The Open Championship, Mercedes-Benz further expanded its golf activities to become an ‘Official Car’ and ’Official Patron’ of the oldest but most innovative golf tournament in the world. Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz supports a wide variety of amateur and professional tournaments at the national level.

Brian Singer returns to direct this latest installment of the X-Men franchise. His last outing with the mutant crew was the excellent “Days of Future Past” which brought the crew back together to change history, and thus opening a path for all new storylines and character development.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

I love who shows up in the end!
