Puma Basket Classic “Macht’s Mit Qualitat”

puma basket mmq 1 Puma Basket Classic Machts Mit Qualitat

The latest round of Machts Mit Qualitat Pumas is starting to roll out to retailers, which means premium quality and cool colorways for fans of the German Cat.  Here we see the Puma Basket lowtop given the special treatment, one of two shoes this season sharing this color scheme (the other being a Stepper).  Relative to the stepper, this Basket is the more restrained design, using a black leather upper with tonal suede up the middle, adding Deep Teal on the Formstripes and a series of brown accents around the ankle.  You can see these from more angles below, then find MMQ Baskets available at top retailers like Titolo.

adidas Skateboarding Ciero – Cinder – Black

adidas originals ciero mid grey black adidas Skateboarding Ciero Cinder Black
It’s been a good while since we’ve seen a new pair, so these new adidas Ciero lowtops are a welcome addition to the Three Stripes skate lineup.  Crafted in a Cinder grey suede, these Cieros go for a no-nonsense look with black Stripes and sole.  The only bit of color comes from the unique sole that pairs a herringbone heel with a honeycomb pattern at the forefoot that given the context looks like a Vans Waffle x Star Wars TIE Fighter hybrid.  Check out more images after the jump, then grab yours from Size?

Collection Summary

“My collection is all over the place. My favorite shoes are LeBron’s, but I don’t stick to just one style or brand. Some of my favorite sneakers are the ones most people don’t think of getting or don’t know much about. To me, there is no better feeling in the sneaker community than hunting for and finally tracking down that one pair you have been looking for, and finally having it in your possession. At one point I bought every sneaker that remotely sparked my interest, but then it got to the point where I had no room and wasn’t wearing much of them anymore, so I sold and gave away a lot of them. Now it’s about getting what I really like and what I know I will wear, and yes I wear EVERY sneaker I own. Don’t let other people’s thoughts determine what you wear, and as everyone has heard at one point: QUALITY OVER QUANTITY.”

Bring ‘em Back: Air Jordan 2 “Melo”

This past week, Carmelo Anthony surprised many by rocking what may be a retro version of his first signature, the Jordan Melo 1.5. A hybrid of sorts, this introductory signature fused aspects of the first two Air Jordan installments for modern play. While many are excited for his first signature retro, we want to see one of his first PE pairs return to shelves. The Air Jordan 2 “Melo” saw Denver hues grace the rookie’s retros. This was one of the first times a player makeup lost its NBA exclusivity, releasing to the public but still in limited numbers. We’re ready for these to launch again. Bring ‘em back!

BRONX NEWS: Sound of silence found on City Island

Can’t hear yourself think in the Bronx? Then head to City Island, says one of New York’s top sound experts.

Benjamin Sachwald, an acoustical consultant, or “noise expert,” has registered his lowest decibel reading in New York City in 10 years on the sleepy seaside enclave off the eastern shores of the borough.

“Even rural areas affected by insect noise and wind blowing through trees don’t get that quiet,” said Sachwald after measuring only 38 A-weighted decibels, on a City Island side street. “It’s extremely quiet.”

A-weighted decibels mark the loudness of sound in the air, taking into account frequencies heard by the human ear.

The average city block rings in at around 60 decibels and avenues in midtown Manhattan consistently reach at least 70 decibels, according to Sachwald.

And he knows his noise. The 31-year-old, who doubles as a heavy metal drummer, grew up with a talent for both music and math. He made use of his skills by becoming one of the city’s go-to sound guys.

The audio-phile works for the environmental and engineering consulting group AKRF Inc., the company that assisted in overhauling the city noise code almost ten years ago.

Consultants such as AKRF are often enlisted to help with city projects even before a shovel hits the ground, or the jackhammers start pounding, by assessing sound levels for environmental impact statements.

The oh-so-quiet City Island reading was taken on a residential street, around midday. Sachwald said the reading was comparable to a library reading room.

But just how noisy can the rest of the city get?

According to Sachwald, the loudest offenders in the Big Apple are the elevated trains that rumble through the outer boroughs. The trains reach between 90-95 decibels when screeching through a turn.

“That’s painful,” the sound man said. “Anything between 90-100 can be quite significant.”

With its out of the way locale, Sachwald said City Island is a respite from the day to day barrage of noises that burden most Bronx nabes.

Community Board 10, which encompasses City Island, as well as Throgs Neck and Pelham Bay, has had only 1,292 noise complaints this year with 145 on the isle, according to the city’s 311 system.

That’s the second lowest in the borough — and a far cry from the 4,310 complaints in the Kingsbridge area.

But not all residents of the Bronx hamlet feel their small slice of waterside life is as quiet as Sachwald’s readings would suggest.

“He should come back on a weekend,” said Barbara Dolensek, the head of the City Island Civic Association.

The 40-year island resident said a summertime influx of joyriding motorcyclists has plagued the community with offensive levels of noise.

“Not all of them, but there are a lot that are just loud.”

Dolensek also pointed out a unique noise that island residents have to contend with on an almost daily basis: the blast of gunfire from the NYPD firing range on Rodman’s Neck, just across Eastchester Bay from the island.

“It is blissfully quiet much of the time, but when the firing range is going full force it really disrupts the peaceful quality of life,” Dolensek said.
