Nike Free Flyknit Mercurial Superfly “Pure Platinum” Available

A fan favorite since their initial release, the Nike Free Flyknit Mercurial Superfly has become one of the more coveted models of the Flyknit family next to the Racers and Trainers. The Mercurial Superfly stands out thanks in large part to its clear soccer inspiration, which has since been tweaked just a bit in order to appeal to the sportswear fans that wanted to wear the shoe off the field. An extended ankle collar and Free 5.0 outsole sets this Superfly apart from the rest of the Flyknit silhouettes, making it one of the more unique and daring designs. After first dropping overseas, sneakerheads in the U.S. can rejoice with the news that the sneaker is now available in select shops across the country.

Video // Phil Knight’s Refreshingly Candid USA Today Interview

words // Nick DePaula:

In recent years, Nike co-founder Phil Knight has given increasingly less interviews, as he’s allowed for current CEO Mark Parker to step in and become the face of the company.

Knight recently spoke with USA Today about his career steering the Nike brand, in what would be his first interview since the April announcement that he’d soon be stepping down as Chairman in 2016.

He teases that he’ll still remain very much involved with the company — “I won’t walk away. I’ll be carried away.” — and also shares some insights on how he worries about every one of Nike’s biggest competitors, who the real MVP behind the success of Jordan Brand was, and how he dealt with the sudden death of his 34 year-old son Matthew.

Here are a few key highlights from the interview:

Stepping down as Nike Inc. Chairman:
“I’m not going away. I’m going to keep my office and I’ll stay involved with the company, but I think it’s time to move on, to the extent that I think Mark Parker should succeed me as Chairman. It’ll give him a time to really look over his successor, and I think for Nike, it’s by far the right thing to do. I’m very comfortable with it.”

Tinker MJWorrying about the competition:
“You look around and there are three or four different guys. The industry has changed enormously. I’ll just say it’s grown and the companies that are in the industry are in more different areas than ever before. So Under Armour is a very serious competitor, but Adidas is the next biggest and they’ve got a lot of money to spend and they have a lot of capability. We worry about them all. And it isn’t just shoes. In golf, we compete against Titleist. In women’s athletic gear, we compete against Lululemon, so we worry about them all.”

The real MVP behind Jordan Brand:
“There are a lot of people that want to take credit for signing Michael Jordan, most obviously Sonny Vaccaro, who’s been on ESPN saying he was the key to the thing. Sonny helped, but he wasn’t the MVP in that process. The MVP over the 25 years that it’s been in existence has really been Tinker Hatfield. Michael trusting Tinker and Tinker understanding who Michael was, they really brought his true self into those products, and obviously they’ve been hugely successful.”

Coping with the accidental deep-sea diving death of his son Matthew:
“I got something like 2,000 or 2,500 letters. The best one I got was a letter from a guy named Gordy Crawford. He said, ‘I locked up my desk and I couldn’t go back to work for 6 months, and then I did.’ It was really helpful, in the sense that I kind of wanted to go to work and I kind of wanted to interact with people, but I couldn’t function. It’s something a parent never gets over. They say, ‘When do you get over it?’ You never get over it. Ever. But you get to so you can function, you get to so you can laugh at jokes again. That’s kind of the way it is.”

Check out the video below for Phil’s thoughts on his career at Nike.

We Are Getting Closer to the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 Launch



Supreme Air Jordan 5 October

We have had our fair share of images of the upcoming Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collection. Starting with our first looks, detailed images and even on feet. Now we have a look at all the pairs together.

The three pairs of Air Jordan 5s by Supreme are known as ‘Desert Camo‘, ‘White‘ and ‘Black‘ but are not the official names of the shoes. Some of the unique details the shoes will have is ‘SUP’ branding across the translucent mesh on the sides and the number ’94’ by the heel for when the store opened. All the tongue will have 3M reflective material, while 2 out of the 3 resemble a past Jordan 5 release.

More images of the ‘Supreme’ x Air Jordan 5 collection grouped together can be seen below. We have heard all three pairs will be a limited release, but how limited is unknown. It is possible that they only release at Supreme locations but this isn’t confirmed. We expect them to release sometime in October 2015, so make sure to check back for more details.

Supreme x Air Jordan 5
Release Date: October 2015
Retail: 8

Update: With a release expected to take place in October, we have our first official look of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collection which looks like the early images were taken from Supreme. Make sure to check back for more info as we continue to cover the unveiling.

Update: Although a specific release date is not yet scheduled for the trio of Supreme x Air Jordan 5, they are rumored to launch in limited numbers during the month of October. For now, images have leaked of the collaborations packaging. As you can see, the box features what the OG Jordan 5 comes in, or even the newer retro models while ‘Supreme’ is written across the lid. On one side of the hangtag will be the Jordan Brand logo along with Supreme’s.

BRONX NEWS: Uber driver strikes woman, 4 kids on Bronx sidewalk


An out-of-control Uber taxi driver plowed into a woman and four children on a Bronx sidewalk, critically injuring one child, as they waited for a school bus Wednesday morning, police and witnesses said.


A 34-year-old woman and her son, 5, and daughter, 8, were hit by the 2014 black Toyota Camry in the Fordham area about 7:45 a.m., cops said. A 11-year-old boy and 7-year-old girl who were on the sidewalk were also struck.


“When I came down, I saw all of the people crying, screaming, going crazy,” said witness Nilda Guerrero, 57, who lives close by where the taxi jumped the curb on E. Kingsbridge Rd. near Valentine Ave.


Guerrero, who said she went to nursing school, tried to help one of the victims, a young boy.


“I just got down, held his hand, and tried to calm him,” she said. “He was bleeding from his mouth, his nose, his leg.”


The distraught boy told her his name was Miguel.


“He was crying for Mommy,” Guerrero said. “He said, ‘I want to see my sister. Where’s my little sister?’ You could see the pain and desperation on his face.”


Police sources said the 8-year-old girl was the most seriously injured and was listed in critical but stable condition with internal injuries and a broken leg.


The 5-year-old, 7-year-old and 11-year-old suffered broken bones, sources said. The woman had minor injuries.


The 57-year-old driver of the car told cops he lost control before he jumped the sidewalk, police sources said. He faced no immediate charges.


“It was speeding,” witness Jose Rodriguez, 39, said of the cab. “It went up on the curb — it sounded like an explosion when the car hit.”


Rodriguez and other good Samaritans tried to lift the car off two victims pinned underneath — and were assisted by cops with a jack, witnesses said.


“When we got enough people we lifted the car and saw both of them,” Rodriguez said of the two pinned victims. “They weren’t moving, they weren’t saying anything.”


Migdalia Morales, 42, a parks worker, witnessed the rescue effort.


“People were trying to lift the car,” she said. “People were screaming.”


“The little girl, she was alert but she was hurt,” Morales added. “She was saying, ‘I’m in pain, I’m in pain.’”


TLC spokesman Allan Fromberg said the vehicle was affiliated to Schmecken, an Uber base, and that the driver and vehicle were in good standing.


The driver has held a TLC driver license since 1998, and began with Schmecken in April.


Four of the victims were taken to Jacobi Medical Center and the fifth was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, officials said.

The Air Jordan 11 “72-10” will release on December 19th with an MSRP of 0.
