Upon its launch in 2012, Nike’s Roshe would quickly go onto become a fan favorite, thanks to its simple, straightforward looks and comfortable, breathable fit. Six years later, the lifestyle sneaker is getting a sport-specific overhaul, good news for golfers who could previously only wear the Roshe on the street. Nike’s new Roshe G is made for the links, featuring a pressure-mapped outsole offering increased durability and traction in key zones. The upper has also been updated, with the mesh construction wrapped in a synthetic overlay, integrated with the laces for a locked-down feel.
Best of all, the shoe is wearable off-course, in step with a key appeal of the Roshe silhouette — its supreme versatility. Look for the Roshe G to launch tomorrow, February 1st, at nike.com and select retailers. The shoe will be available in men’s, women’s and youth sizes.

Release Date: 2/1/18 (Thursday)

BRONX NEWS: NYC worker injured by street sweeper feared for drumming career


When sanitation worker Mark Bonifacio’s arm was sucked into a street sweeper as he toiled in the Bronx recently, the part-time jazz drummer had one thought running through his head — he was never going to make music again.


“I was praying to God that I didn’t lose my arm,” Bonifacio, 50, said Wednesday from Jacobi Medical Center. “I’m a professional jazz drummer and this is totally messing up my plans.”


The 19-year Department of Sanitation veteran broke his humerus bone when the rig pulled his arm into its gears at Balcom Ave. and Bruckner Blvd. in Throggs Neck at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. He suffered nerve damage along with the broken arm.


“There is no feeling in my whole arm,” Bonifacio said. “You know how you feel when you fall asleep on your arm — it feels like that. It feels like it’s 50 pounds. And some feeling is coming back but the feelings are painful.”

Bonifacio enjoys writing music for his contemporary jazz group on his off hours.


“I don’t know how long I’m going to be out of commission,” he said. “It hurts like hell. I can’t even drive my car because it’s stick.”


For the last 17 years, Bonifacio has been running a street sweeper in the Bronx.


On Tuesday, he saw a truck tire in his path. He got out of his rig to kick the tire out of the way but it got sucked up into his machine.

Sanitation worker treated like garbage over Middle Eastern DNA


“I was reversing, trying to get (the tire) out, but it wasn’t underneath, it was inside,” he said. “I went to get my gloves and turn the thing off but I should have just left it alone.”


Bonifacio shut down the sweeper’s flights that pull in dirt and debris before removing the tire but the object was under so much pressure the machine automatically sucked in his arm as soon as the tire was freed, he said.


“I was in a lot of pain but eventually I didn’t feel anything because my arm was crushed,” he said.


Despite his injury, Bonifacio, who was operating the street sweeper alone, was able to with his other hand fish his phone out of his pocket and call a supervisor, who raced to the scene while calling 911 for help.

“Thank God I had my phone on me,” Bonifacio said.


First responders were able to free his arm and take him to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was scheduled to undergo surgery.


“It could be weeks before my nerves can heal,” he said.

Air Jordan 1 “Gold Toe” Releasing in Full Family Sizes

Trailing its coveted “Top 3” counterpart that released in limited numbers late last year, the Air Jordan 1 “Gold Toe” touches down at select retailers next month. Dropping during NBA All-Star Weekend, the best news regarding this highly anticipated pair is not only its look, but the fact that they’ll be available in larger numbers.

Confirmed to be releasing in full family sizes, the “Gold Toe” 1s will be a general release meaning pairs will be somewhat easier to obtain given the production numbers are slightly larger. Now don’t expect an easy cop, but certainly nothing like the aforementioned “Top 3” and other super limited Jordan releases.

Grab an official look at the Air Jordan 1 “Gold Toe” below and be sure to plan for the February 16 release.

Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid Collab to Feature NBA Logos

Last year it was reported that Supreme’s upcoming Nike collaboration would in some shape or fashion include the NBA. Today those rumors are confirmed with a preview of the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid collaboration.

Covered with all 30 NBA logos across black and white Air Force 1 Mids, the aesthetic is extremely ’90s and, like many things in fashion today, closely mimics counterfeit pieces from decades past. Similar to Louis Vuitton’s last collection, which odes to Harlem-based Dapper Dan’s handmade counterfeit gems of yesteryear, this upcoming Supreme x Nike partnership looks like something that once filled discount bins and the shelves at flea markets and swap meets. Reebok also attempted this look back in the early 2000’s and many a rapper donned NBA logo jackets of a similar volition.

The Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid is slated to release something this spring. Grab a first look below.

BRONX NEWS: Bronx man with ISIS propaganda from NYC bomber laughs in court


The Bronx would-be terrorist who liked to watch gory beheading videos while working out smiled and laughed his way through a court appearance Wednesday.


Sajmir Alimehmeti, 24, sporting a shaved head and mid-length beard, chuckled at times with his lawyer during the hearing — and grinned and waved to the courtroom as he was led away.


Alimehmeti stands accused of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, as well as making a false statement when applying for a U.S. passport.


Prosecutors also allege that Alimehmeti has picked up some “terrorist propaganda” from convicted Chelsea bomber Ahmad Rahimi while in jail.

Alimehmeti could face up to 45 years in federal lockup.


Manhattan Federal Judge Paul Engelmayer set a May 7 trial date for the accused ISIS acolyte.


He’s been in federal jail without bail since his arrest in May 2016.


In Dec. 8 court filings, prosecutors said Alimehmeti “participated in the receipt and dissemination of terrorist propaganda materials” after he was arrested.

Chelsea bomber claims he started hunger strike two weeks ago


The former plumbing assistant demonstrated “a clear intention to support a terrorist organization that is hell-bent on murder and mayhem,” former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said after Alimehmeti’s arrest.


The 24-year-old also stockpiled gruesome ISIS beheading videos on his laptop, prosecutors said.


He showed them to guests, or played them to get “motivated” during workouts, the feds have said.


Alimehmeti twice tried to fly to the U.K. from American in the fall of 2014 but was denied entry both times.

When he was blocked at Manchester Airport, officials found camo clothing and nunchucks in his baggage.


The second time, when Alimehmeti touched down at Heathrow Airport, officials confiscated his laptop and cell phone.


They found pics of ISIS flags, as well as videos of bombings, and tipped off the FBI after kicking him back to the U.S., prosecutors said.


After returning stateside, Alimehmeti allegedly stockpiled weapons.

Bronx terrorism suspect can only see evidence for an hour a week


He also began meeting with another wannabe ISIS terrorist – who was actually an undercover agent – in 2015. Alimehmeti brought the agent to his home and showed him ISIS-made videos, named “nasheeds,” prosecutors claimed.


“One of the nasheeds showed ISIL fighters decapitating prisoners,” the criminal complaint alleged.


Alimehmeti told the agent he watched these videos “to keep him motivated while he is exercising,” the complaint said.


He also played the nasheed for another undercover agent, authorities said.

Alimehmeti later spilled that he hoped to join ISIS in Syria and asked for help getting his hands on a bogus passport, explaining to the undercover agents that his name was “in the system,” prosecutors allege.
