Win Like MJ Did Back In 1982

Some of the league’s greatest players ever got their first national audience during the 1982 college championship game. Among them was Michael Jordan, then a 19-year-old freshman, who rose for a jumper with just 17 seconds left to put his team up for good. He would continue to rise all the way to the sport’s pinnacle. The latest Air Jordan XI colorway, sporting University Blue hits, pays homage to his alma mater and the ‘82 victory that launched his legacy.

These kicks go on sale this Saturday on the SNKRS app in limited quantities.

Reebok Classic and Future Create The Furykaze

Reebok Classic and Future announced this week that the highly anticipated Furykaze will release on November 11.  As an ode to Future’s favorite Reebok sneakers, this brand new silhouette is a combination of the beloved Instapump Fury and Kamikaze II.  Inspired by the Scorpion, Future’s astrological sign, the texture of the suede upper is reminiscent of the hair on the scorpion’s tail, claws and legs, while the molded vamps emanate the ribbed body.  The TPU heel collar also mimics the flexibility of the scorpion’s tail and folds easily down for ease of wear.

The Furykaze will be released in a fresh Sandstone colorway with an external Pump bladder on the upper reminiscent of the Fury. The split tooling sole, Graphlite shank, tonal midsole and gum outsole also pay homage to the Fury, while the mid-cut and zig-zag design of the Pump bladder are reminiscent of the original Kamikaze.  Finishing off the look and giving it Future’s own feel, Freebandz stars are included on the suede loop at the heel and the wordmark on the metal lace tips of the round tonal laces.

The Furykaze will be on sale for $250 on November 11, 2017 at Reebok.com and select Reebok retailers worldwide.

To find the all-new Winter is Here beer or gift set near you, visit http://ommegang.com/blog/beer-finder/

Winter is Here is brewed with pilsner malt, white wheat malt, and soft red wheat flakes, hopped with Saaz hops, and spiced with white pepper, sea salt, coriander and sweet orange peel. Brewery Ommegang’s house yeast is used in primary and secondary fermentation. This double white ale pours a hazy pale straw color with a stark white head. Aromas of banana, clove, and pronounced peppery phenols lead, and the flavor is slightly sweet malt, subtly balanced by hints of sea salt. Despite a full mouthfeel and healthy ABV, it still manages to drink quite lightly. The finish gradually builds in a warming crescendo of peppery spice.

Fire and Blood was the third beer in the collaborative series, originally released in spring of 2014. It’s brewed with pilsner, spelt, rye, and other specialty malts, hopped with Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops, and spiced with ancho chilies for additional complexity. The hue is deep, dark red with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. The aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, slight spice and malt mix nicely with a slight floral, spicy hop character. The flavor of sweet malt gives way to faint dryness and is balanced by spicy rye and hop flavors with underlying raisin and prune notes. The finish offers balanced malt and spicy characteristics from hops and rye. Fire and Blood is 6.8% ABV, and the label art features one of the original three labels, a fiery image of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon, Drogon.
