The newest addition to the Nike Training family combines Max Air cushioning with a Free-like grooved forefoot. This combo gives the Nike Air Max TR 365 a performance edge, because the hardest impacts are likely to strike the heel and your forefoot will benefit greatly from barefoot articulation.

The Hundreds Johnson Low “Adam Bomb”

hundreds johnson low adam bomb navy red The Hundreds Johnson Low Adam Bomb

The Hundreds is the latest modern brand to embrace the tradition of preppy all-over embroidery with this new colorway on one of their established models.  The Hundreds Johnson Low comes in a navy blue canvas with red Adam Bomb print applied across the entire upper.  The choice of black laces is a curious one given the ‘navy and black ban’ as old as these symbol arrangements, and just goes to show that it’s not a hard and fast rule, just something to enact with great care.  Check out more photos, let us know how these compare to Vans’ similar efforts and grab a pair today from shops like Premier.

BRONX NEWS: Bronx vol brings 17 years’ Experience

Sleepy-eyed schoolkids won’t be the only ones boarding city buses to return to their classrooms this fall; once again, 83-year-old Marion Chambers will be joining them.

The youthful senior citizen has been tutoring South Bronx students since 1996 with a program known as Experience Corps.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been that long,” Chambers said as she began organizing paperwork for the upcoming school year.

The former disability claims adjuster worked 35 years for MetLife Insurance before taking an early severance package in the late 1980s.

She and her husband, Donald Chambers, planned to spend their autumn years traveling.

But her husband succumbed to complications related to Parkinson’s Disease in March of 1996.

That’s when she found her new role — and found that it suited her perfectly.

RELATED: SENIORS BRING EXPERIENCE TO SCHOOLKIDS

“Volunteering changed my whole outlook on life,” Chambers said. “It just came at a good time.”

The young widow, then 66, had no prior teaching experience and was skeptical about how she would fit in with the new program.

“I didn’t know if I could do it,” the spry grandmother said with a laugh. “But it just falls in place, and the kids begin to learn. It was a learning experience for me as well.”

The program is situated in 10 schools across the city, including four in the Bronx.

The group’s 102 volunteers are all 50 years old or older, they all have a high school diploma or GED and each is screened and required to pass a background check.

For her first 10 years with Experience Corps, Chambers tutored students at Public School 156, just steps from her Concourse Village apartment.

She would walk the half a block to the school and work with kids in first through third grade on a one-on-one basis for an hour at a time, four days a week.

RELATED: READ IT AND WEEP! TUTORS GET CUT

Each school day the past two years, she has taken two buses to reach P.S.92 on 179th St.

Experience Corps., run by the Community Service Society, focuses on literacy — reading, phonics, writing and penmanship.

“Volunteers are empowered to give children the gift of reading, and (they) play an essential role in helping them meet reading performance standards,” said Kemba Tamar, the organization’s project director.

The seniors receive a small allowance to cover transportation costs, but Chambers — who was eagerly awaiting her assignment letter for the fall — she said the real reward is helping the kids.

And she shows no signs of slowing down.

“Each year I say I’m too old to keep doing this,” the octogenarian said. “But I come back each time.”

#KickChronicles: The One Shoe We Could Wear Every Day – Nice Kicks Staff

As sneaker enthusiasts, we all have a number of options to choose from in regards to what we wear each day. Our daily shoe selections can sometimes be tedious depending on the extent of our sneaker closets, but what if we had to size our collections down to one shoe? Which one would you keep to wear every day?

For our fourth installment of Kick Chronicles, we, the Nice Kicks staff, detail and discuss the one shoe we could wear every day if our hand, or foot for that matter, was forced. Check out the shoe each of us selected, and share your own stories of the one shoe you could wear every day with us after reading.

Ian Stonebrook

Air Jordan 10 “Steel”

Kick Chronicles
Based entirely on experience, the one shoe in my collection that would have to get the deserted island treatment is the Air Jordan 10 “Steel.” While I rock and beat up the Black/Cement 3s on the reg, I can actually hoop in the “Steel” 10s, which is the deal breaker for me. These shoes have seen wear on the hardwood, they’ve been stepped on at the bar and they go well with the majority of my wardrobe. This retro release was surprisingly comfortable and really ahead of its time in a lot of ways, carrying components that almost feel like early versions of Dynamic Fit and Nike Free. Another great attribute about this shoe is that the leather cleans so easily. I remember being bummed about my pair back in the day because they had a big glue mark on the tongue but flaws and all, they’ve remained a favorite.

Supra Owen – August 2013 Colorways

supra owen august 2013 colorways 8 Supra Owen August 2013 Colorways
Relatively quiet this summer after the La MJC collab, the Supra Owen is back with a new set of colorways for autumn.  First up is a khaki twill style that has the look of a Carhartt collaboration without the dual branding or limited numbers (or added cost).  Proving that material can work well across the spectrum is another twill makeup in burgundy atop that same white SUPRAFOAM sole.  Rounding out the trio is its most expressive leg, an aqua suede and mesh plus black microfiber makeup with speckled midsole.  All three are depicted further after the jump, and you’ll find them available now straight from Supra.
