Last week, in New York City and Miami, an army of Reebok Classic bicycle messengers swept through both cities delivering the first pairs of Day Glo Ventilator sneakers set to hit stores this month. The messengers rode custom Day Glo-inspired, single speed bikes — in blue, yellow, pink and orange hues that matched the colors of the sneakers — to messenger advanced pairs of the Ventilators around in NYC and Miami.
In New York, messengers battled downtown and uptown traffic to deliver the Ventilators to select, unsuspecting recipients all around the city, hitting the Financial District, Tribeca, Midtown, Upper West and Upper East Sides, as well as Harlem. In Miami, the messengers endured the unrelenting heat and sun to surprise residents all over South Beach, North Beach, Little Havana and Wynwood with the neon colored kicks.
Didn’t receive a pair? Not to worry. The Reebok Classic Day Glo is currently on sale at www.reebok.com and everyone who purchases a pair will be entered in a special drawing to receive one of the custom Day Glo bikes!
In 1990, Reebok released one of their most timeless running designs: the Ventilator. Incorporating Hexalite technology into the shoe to provide greater comfort and better shock absorption it was the perfect shoe for the faster, lighter runner. The durable lugged outsole was designed to give sure-footed traction for both on and off-road running. The visible archbridge in the middle of the shoe was perfectly placed to offer optimum motion control. And the name Ventilator? That came from the ventilated side panels that allowed cooling and breathability. The shoe was ahead of its time. Twenty-five years later the shoe is a classic. Still as light as it ever was but now worn for street fashion instead of road running.
Capturing the electric energy found within unforgettable days and even hotter nights, Reebok Classic’s latest iteration of the Ventilator – Ventilator Day Glo – puts a bold, neon spin on the classic silhouette. Fearless and unapologetic, the bright colorways that make up this unique pack are for those not afraid to stand out or stand up.
Ventilator Day Glo – Men’s
Colorways: Yellow, Blue
Retailers: Jimmy Jazz, Villa, Shiekh’s, and Shoe Palace
Ventilator Day Glo – Women’s
Colorways: Orange, Pink
Retailers: Finish Line, Urban Outfitters, Jimmy Jazz, and Reebok.com

Recently when I was on a plane I was trying to get some work done. I had my laptop with me. Being sandwiched in the middle seat wasn’t the most conducive place for my laptop. I would have loved to have worked on my tablet, but I hate the touch keypad. I wanted to be able to use a keyboard like the one on my laptop. For me that is the best way to type at my normal pace.
Thankfully I found out about the Jorno tri-folding keyboard. Jorno provides the ultimate level of mobility. It easily folds up to a compact size so you can be productive while on the go. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to connect Jorno wirelessly to your mobile device so that you can place the keyboard anywhere you like. This connectivity even works with your desktop or tablet.
The protective case for Jorno doubles as a stand that securely holds your device in either portrait or landscape orientation. It adjusts to the perfect viewing angle just for you. The keys on Jorno are just 9% smaller than standard keys. These nearly full size keys offer ease and accuracy in long form typing, word processing, blogging, emailing, and note taking.
The Jorno tri-folding Bluetooth keyboard comes with a full standard QWERTY key layout for smartphones and tablet, one integrated case/stand and one micro-USB charging cable. It usually sells for $99.00 and will be worth every cent if you are looking to be able to work productively anywhere you go.
Right now Jorno is offering a special introductory price of $79 for a limited time only, using discount code “JORNO” at checkout, with free shipping anywhere in the United States.
