ovo air jordan 6 Air Jordan 6 OVO

The Air Jordan 6 “OVO” is happening, folks. What was originally perceived to be an April Fool’s Day joke may be going down this October (how fitting), following up those amazing Air Jordan X and XII samples that were given out at a Raptors game some time ago. The Air Jordan 6 OVO features a classy Black/Gold colorway (almost like the DMPs) with the OVO logo etched onto the heel of the shoe. This first photo is all we get for now, but stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates and let us know what you think of this next Drake x Jordan Brand collaboration.

Anyway, this collection ranges from floral, camo and paisley prints that would still make you look fly…at least from a far. Don’t worry; your nerdy secret will be down played with this kicks.Look for them starting June the 1st.

BRONX NEWS: Anti-abortion activists don’t ‘like’ Bronx clinic


Anti-abortion activists don’t “like” the way this Morris Park clinic promotes its services.


Pro-lifers are blasting Bronx Abortion for its social media posts, which invite pregnant women to like or share weekend walk-in hours and other “events.”


The clinic occupies a nondescript brick building on Eastchester Ave., but its website and Facebook page are adorned with pink borders and pictures of smiling doctors, and anti-abortion groups are rankled.


Lucy LeFever, a blogger for the pro-life group Live Action, says she was infuriated by a recent Facebook post that prompted her to invite friends to the clinic’s Saturday walk-in hours.


“To take abortion so lightly that they advertise on something like Facebook is disgusting,” LeFever told The News on Thursday. “Without the word ‘abortion’ on the page in curly writing, the pink and the hearts make it look like a coffee shop fan page or a manicure and pedicure Groupon deal.”


Social media is a natural medium for clinics to reach women, pro-choice advocates said.


“If people feel that they need to get an abortion they have the right to access one,” said Christine Davitt of the New York Abortion Access Fund. “Obviously, a lot of women are on social media so if that is a way to reach them we support that.”


Bronx Abortion’s Facebook page offers more than just its hours of operation. The page also serves as a sounding board: Pro-choice posts promote women’s reproductive rights and recount the recent wave of laws, in states across the country, that make it harder for women to access health services.


One post asks: “Do you live in Baton Rouge? Come to the Bronx. We will take care of you,” and links to an article about legislative efforts that would significantly curtail the number of abortion clinics in Louisiana.


LeFever, 20, who studies at The King’s College, a Christian liberal arts college in Lower Manhattan, wasn’t interested in any of that.


“The abortion industry thinks it can make abortions cutesy or trendy, and they treat it like a product to be sold,” LeFever said.


But restrictive laws are becoming commonplace; the Pelican State is on the verge of joining Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and Wisconsin in passing regulations that would shutter most of the state’s abortion clinics.


New York, on the other hand, has some of the most tolerant laws in the country with regards to the practice.


Even so, the abortion rate citywide has dropped in recent years. About 37% of city pregnancies were terminated in 2012 compared with 56% in 2003, according to Health Department statistics.


The Bronx is still a key battleground for reproductive rights. The borough has the highest abortion rate in the city at 48%.


“The accessibility is really important in places like the Bronx,” Davitt said. “The more access women have to services they need the better.”


An administrator for Bronx Abortion did not return calls for comment.

Reebok Freestyle Hi “Exotics” – Black – Metallic Silver

reebok high exotics black metallic silver 01 570x400 Reebok Freestyle Hi Exotics Black Metallic Silver

The Reebok 5411 or Reebok Freestyle Hi has been a classic since the double strapped silhouette debuted in 1982. The origins can be traced back to the aerobic-crazed 80s and while that phase has since come and gone, this sneaker has instead opted to fill a lifestyle niche, and has done so rather successfully. That being said, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the silhouette gets hit with an exotic albeit synthetic animal texture ranging from crocodile to iguana inspirations. This time around it gets a casual all black look for the ladies while accents of metallic silver hit the branding. Get with us after the click for a better look at the latest Reebok WMNS release and while a release date hasn’t been set yet be sure to head to our Sneaker Release dates page for all of your updates.

nike eric koston se black base grey laser crimson 01 570x400 Nike Eric Koston SE Black Base Grey Laser Crimson

It’s been a while since we saw the first iteration of Eric Koston’s signature Nike SB line arrive at retailers. Remember that Volt and Black style that turned heads as it claimed that the colorway wasn’t just designated for Jordans? The gridded ripstop style returns to the Nike Eric Koston SE in a much more low-key colorway but it still manages to sneak in some vibrance thanks to laser crimson accents found on the outsole and branding. As for the rest of the sneaker, muted tones of base grey should make this pair an easy casual wear. What do you think? Hit the click for a better view of the latest Koston 1 style and know that you can reserve your pair today via Size?.
