Nike Air Huarache Drift “Scream Green” // Available Now

New iterations of the Nike Air Huarache are undeniably fast and curious. They tend to riff of off the original yet with modern-day aesthetics that orbit contemporary design. The Huarache Drift is the latest, and its current release reaches all the way back to an Air Huarache OG colorway.

Although not a direct replication, the Nike Air Huarache Drift “Scream Green” pulls from the OG of the same moniker. Taking the lively green shade and blending it with blue and white accents, this pair finds distinction through its black midsole tooling and attached heel counter.

Take a closer look at the model below. Pairs are available now for 0 at Nike.

BRONX NEWS: Innocent man freed after 20 years in prison feels numb


After 20 years in prison for a crime he says he did not commit, a Bronx man says there are just two things he wants to do now that he’s free: take a walk, and be alone.


While friends and family were ecstatic over a judge’s decision to vacate Larry McKee’s murder conviction, McKee was a bit more circumspect, reflecting on the broken system that robbed him of two decades of his life.


“How do I feel? Satisfied, not happy,” McKee said after he was officially released from prison Monday.


“It still ain’t hit me. I’ve been in there. I had to block a lot of stuff out I had to stop thinking about out here.”

Bronx man wrongfully convicted for 1997 murder set for release


Relatives clapped and cheered as McKee walked past signs that said “Hall of Justice” at the Bronx Criminal Court building.


As he took his first steps as a free man, McKee managed to share a shy smile with the supporters who came to greet him.


“Right now I have no feeling,” McKee said. “What am I going to do now? Take a walk. Be alone.”


McKee, 47, spent 20 years in prison for the second-degree murder of 29-year-old Theodore Vance. He was serving a sentence of 24 years to life.


According to trial testimony, McKee was alleged to have gotten into a brawl with Vance on Feb. 19, 1996, on W. 176th St.


Prosecutors said McKee then ran across the street from his rival and opened fire, killing him.


But following a six-month investigation, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark’s office found grand jury evidence that was not shared with McKee’s defense team.


According to the new evidence, Vance, bleeding to death, told a witness he saw “a Spanish guy.”


That critical piece of evidence corroborated witness testimony that the gunman was Hispanic. McKee is black.


The failure to disclose the dying declaration was enough to throw the conviction out, Clark said.


“I’m very happy for my client,” said McKee’s lawyer, Michael Talassazan. “There’s some degree of justice here, although it was delayed. It’s a second lease on life.”

BRONX NEWS: Cops gun down knife-wielding man in the Bronx


Cops shot and killed a man who lunged at them with a combat knife Monday night as they responded to a report of a stabbing, police said.


Two officers arrived at Prospect Ave. and E. 181st St. in Belmont around 7:40 p.m., after getting a 911 call that a man was stabbed during a landlord-tenant dispute, sources said. No one had been stabbed, but the tenant was chasing his landlord with a razor during a rent dispute, and his startled roommate was the one who called cops, according to sources.


The 52-year-old tenant, who had switched out his razor for a “Rambo-style” combat knife, confronted arriving cops on the street, sources said.


The man was 10 feet away from the two officers and refused repeated commands to drop the weapon, NYPD Chief of Patrol Rodney Harrison told reporters.

Bronx man didn’t grab cop’s gun during fatal scuffle: witness


“The man turned toward the officers, and the cops opened fire, hitting him, Harrison said.


Medics rushed the man to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he died.


Cops recovered the man’s knife from the scene.


“The police showed up. They were playing ‘Tom and Jerry’ going around (chasing him),” said one witness, who didn’t give his name. “They were telling him, ‘Drop the weapon, drop the weapon!’ ”


Police radio transmissions show the cops were responding to a report of a man stabbed inside a first-floor apartment, at an address with a history of domestic violence complaints.


Within moments of their arrival, a panicked cop could be heard on radio transmissions, screaming the code for officers needing assistance: “Shots fired! Shots fired! 10-13, shots fired!”


A sergeant called for a radio dispatcher to rush an ambulance to the scene.


When police investigated inside the apartment, they found no one had been stabbed, Harrison said Monday night.


“I just saw people running out of the way and I heard gunshots, just two about,” said Pablo Flores, 24, who was walking his dog nearby.


“Cars swerving from different directions, they told everyone to back up,” he said. “Next thing you know, you just hear bop, bop. That’s when I brought my dog out and they started backing up everyone out the way.”


Two responding officers were injured in a car crash about three blocks away, at E. 180th St. and Prospect Ave. Their injuries were not life-threatening, police sources said.

BRONX NEWS: New Bronx court allows opioid addicts to dodge jail


Opioid addicts in the Bronx now have a chance to avoid jail through a new drug court that prioritizes treatment over punishment.


Court officials and Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark revealed Monday that the special court opened eight weeks ago and is treating 52 defendants charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.


Addicts who fulfill treatment goals in the Overdose and Avoidance Recovery program will have their drug charges dismissed and sealed.


“It’s not the normal sense of crime and punishment. Our track is about compassion and recovery,” Judge George Grasso said.

Opioid Addiction FAQ: Experts’ guide to the hard facts


“Now we are in full crisis mode…It’s not about slapping wrists. It’s about saving lives.”


During a proceeding before the judge, a male defendant requested further addiction treatment at Mount Sinai Hospital through Bronx Community Solutions project director Maria Almonte.


In a departure from typical court protocol, the man did not have to be present.


Grasso commended the request.

N.Y. lawmakers urged to allow safe sites for addicts to use drugs


“We will in this proceeding bend over backward to work with him. Remind him that this isn’t the normal crime and punishment. This is a very unique track,” Grasso said to Almonte, who was assisting in treatment.


“I very much look forward to seeing him on Feb. 8 to get the latest information on his progress.”


Clark said Daily News coverage of the crisis, dubbed “Opioid Nation,” inspired her to pursue the alternative form of justice.


“The Daily News really hit it on the head with that story. That just solidified that we really needed to think outside the box and to think of something really creative to help these long term users who are at high risk of overdose,” Clark said.

The statistics are dire.


Between January 2013 and July 2017, 879 people died of opioid use in the Bronx. Of those, 551 people had an average 8.9 arrests each. Last year, 292 people were murdered in all of New York City. In comparison, the city recorded over 300 overdose deaths in the Bronx alone in 2017, Grasso said.
