Kevin Durant Hooked Up the Texas Basketball Team With the “Texas” Nike KD VI

Kevin Durant Hooked Up the Texas Basketball Team With the Texas Nike KD VI

Despite Kevin Durant only spending one year as a member of the Texas Longhorns basketball program, his love for the school runs extremely deep. Don’t believe us, then just think back to the Texas-inspired kicks that released in recent years. With his alma matter serving as the muse for one of his latest drops, Durant took his appreciation to a whole other level when he went ahead and laced the entire team with not only the “Texas” Nike KD VI but with matching KD book bags as well. Check out another look at the swag KD bestowed upon the Longhorns after the jump and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.

Joe Johnson’s second year with the Nets is off to a pretty good start-as he chipped in with 13 points during last night’s season opener out in Cleveland. Of course the Nets ended up being five points short of the mark as far as a victory is concerned, but that shouldn’t cast too long a shadow on what is poised to be one of the franchise’s better seasons. Turning the hands of time back a bit is this Air Jordan 13 for the man, one crafted during the latter half of his seven-year stint with the Atlanta Hawks. Get a complete look atthe sneakers with us after the click and then check out the chance to own them yourself from shut_down_the_game on eBay.

Air Jordan 5 “Laney” – Beauty Shots

air jordan 5 laney beauty shots 7 Air Jordan 5 Laney Beauty Shots

Across the last couple of years, Jordan Brand’s output of Retro Air Jordan releases is one that has been littered with rather basic colorways with the purpose of telling a unique story. The Air Jordan 9 “Kilroy Pack” reminded us of Michael Jordan’s fictional alter ego, the Air Jordan 5 “Bel Air” had us reminiscing over some classic on-screen sneaker appearances of the 90s, and the various “Fear Pack” releases echoed a tagline from an MJ-featuring commercial of old. This story-telling initiative is one that originates as far back as 2000 with the original Air Jordan 5 “Laney”, at the start of the long-forgotten era when the majority of the OG Jordans were yet to be re-released, most of whatever hit stores remained on shelves for some time, and when the disappearance of Nike Air branding was something to merely shrug at.

Jordan Prime Flight – Black – Yellow

jordan prime flight black yellow Jordan Prime Flight Black Yellow

The Jordan Prime Flight is one of those Jordan Brand silhouettes that will sort of get lost in the mix between retro releases and signature pairs. As a result, we probably won’t ever get any real word on the shoe’s DNA or overall story. So that means it’s up to us, and you, to fill in the blanks. The shoes feature a thick bit of cording that may or may not technically be Dynamic Flywire. Elsewhere there’s a wrap around the front end of the shoe that sort of has that Air Jordan IX/Air Jordan XI mudguard feel to it. Get a better look a this black and yellow combo for the Jordan Prime Flight and tell us in the comments if you approve.

BRONX NEWS: Audit rips notorious shelter operator

A Bronx-based shelter operator has failed to account for millions of dollars in city payments and racked up huge utility tabs while subjecting the city’s homeless population to squalid conditions, an audit from City Controller John Liu’s office found.

Liu called on the city to drop Aguila, which serves more than 1,400 indigent families and operates dozens of shelters in the Bronx and Manhattan. He also urged the city Department of Homeless Services to better oversee its homeless shelter operators.

“In light of the repeated and systematic failures, DHS should discontinue its use of Aguila,” Liu wrote to Mayor Bloomberg Wednesday.

Liu took the city to task as well. His report charged that the Department of Homeless Services failed to adequately inspect Aguila’s shelters, which enabled the operator to put people up in buildings that were rife with housing violations — some more than a year old, the audit stated.

Liu said Aguila, which is led by Mayor Bloomberg’s former Department of Homeless Services commissioner Robert Hess, also owes the city more than 0,000 in unpaid water and sewer bills.

Some of Aguila’s shelters include the Apollo Hotel, in Harlem, and sites on Boynton, Manor, Morris and Sherman Aves. in the Bronx.

RELATED: NEW SUIT AGAINST HOMELESS FACILITY

Liu has been scrutinizing the relationship between the city and Aguila for years. In July, the city took legal action in an effort to reverse Liu’s rejection of two city contracts with Aguila. The lawsuit is ongoing.

Representatives from Aguilareferred comments to the city.A spokeswoman from the Mayor’s OfficeSamantha Levine said the city couldn’t comment on Aguila because of the lawsuit.

In an audit two years ago, Liu petitioned the Department of Homeless Services to recoup more than 0,000 in improper payments that the city made to Aguila, and have the operator account for .1 million in city payments that could not be substantiated, meaning Aguila had billed the city without providing proper documentation.

RELATED: CITY SUES LIU FOR REJECTING SHELTER CONTRACTS

But Liu said the city got only 8,412 of that money back, and did not look into more than half of .3 million the Controller’s Office found the city paid Aguila for services that were not stipulated in a written contract.

Despite the litany of irregularities, the city has steadily increased its reliance on the contractor. The Department of Homeless Services paid Aguila million in the 2013 fiscal year — up from .3 million the previous year, the audit showed.

“The escalating costs come as the city’s homeless population has climbed to levels not seen in decades,” Liu wrote. “This band-aid approach to housing the homeless is as costly as it is ineffective.”

While Wood Wood may be revered for its rich and casual looks in apparel and footwear, the brand has teamed up with candle brand Calming Park to create a scented candle with special packaging. While this isn’t the typical piece to come from Wood Wood, it certainly does well to extend the warm, cozy, and casual tones of the brand. Calming Park was originally founded by Swiss DJ Olivier Rohrbach to “assist in the search for personal balance and calm.” It certainly succeeds when the candle is lit, releasing soothing patchouli and cedarwood fragrances into the air, combining these hints within the organic palm wax mixture. Delivered with a burning life of over 40 hours, look for the Wood Wood x Calming Park “Cashmere” candle on the Danish brand’s web shop.

DJ Clark Kent’s signature 112 colorway is created by combining the original ‘Neon’ Air Max 95 palette with elephant print.  It turns out this look with a little blue added in is also quite aesthetically pleasing, and this new Nike Air Force 1 Low is hopefully just the first of many examples.  These AF1 Lows frame a Reflective Silver Elephant print base in black suede, adding Volt Swooshes and soles in addition to hits from a bright blue shade that given the season and appearance, would seem to be in the Gamma neighborhood.  These just released in Japan and you can see more photos below, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for word on a US delivery.
