Nike Toki CC – Black – White – Mint

nike toki mid black aqua 1 Nike Toki CC Black White Mint

Joining the Tennis Classic among Nike Sportswear October 2013 shipments in black with a white sole and just a hint of green is the pair pictured above. The Nike Toki CC is also like the aforementioned upcoming Tennis Classic in that its black, white and Dusty Grey official colors doesn’t mention the green accent shade, but whereas the Tennis Classics go for lime, these have more of a minty shade. That and the mid vs low preference will go a long way to deciding which of these low-key winners you choose, and you can see more of this Toki CC below before you pre-order from Titolo.

Vielleicht Ullas Großvater…

Ulla hatte mit ihrem ebenfalls pensionierten Gatten den Winter über im sonnigen Thailand verbracht und war mit einem befreundeten Ehepaar mit dem Zug auf der Rückreise. Obwohl Mahatma Ghandi eher dem indischen Bereich zugehört, war er, neben den touristischen Attraktionen und dem Besuch in einem Kloster ein tiefer ausgeführtes Gesprächsthema, denn der Freund und pensionierte Lehrer hatte Ulla gefragt, was sie mit den Mönchen assoziiere.
In diesem Zusammenhang sprach Ulla von Frieden und passivem Protest. Ihr Vater habe unter dem Faschismus sehr gelitten, weil er eine pazifistische Einstellung hatte.
„Und er war dumm genug“, sagte Ulla, „diese in einem totalitären Staat zu äußern. Dafür hat er teuer bezahlt, wie ihr wisst.“
„Dann bist du Pazifistin aus Überzeugung?“ fragte der Lehrer.
„Ja“, antwortete sie. „Aber auch das ist ja nichts Neues. Neu aber ist die Frage für mich, ob Mönche auf die Straße gehen sollten, wenn die Bevölkerung Ungerechtigkeit erfährt. Mein Vater als Pazifist ist für das Recht auf die Straße gegangen, freie Meinung äußern zu dürfen. Er hat sich erst kurz vor seinem Tod mit seinen Peinigern ausgesöhnt, aber immerhin hat er es geschafft.“
Die Frau des Lehrers mischte sich jetzt ein und fragte erst ein wenig um den heißen Brei herum, bis sie schließlich auf den Punkt kam. Sie fragte: „Wie konnte er seinen Hass ablegen?“
„Er sprach in den letzten Wochen vor seinem Tod immer wieder von bestimmten Träumen, die er aber als Begegnungen mit seinem Vater bezeichnete.“
Ullas Mann ergänzte: „Bitte nicht vergessen, Heinrich war Offizier der alten kaiserlichen Reichsarmee.“
„Mein Vater“, fuhr Ulla fort, „steht also vor seinem eigentlichen Peiniger, seinem Vater und erfährt die wahren Umstände seiner militärischen Erziehung, gegen die er so vehement rebelliert hatte. Und plötzlich bekommt sein Vater Hörner und wird größer und größer, bis er sich in den Himmel hinein ausdehnt und dort zerbirst wie eine Silvesterrakete. Tausende leuchtender Sterne fallen nicht herunter, sondern stehen am nächtlichen Himmel, und dann habe er die Stimme seines Vaters gehört die gesagt hat: So entsteht das Universum. Und dann hat sein Vater nicht mehr in Uniform vor ihm gestanden sondern in einer asiatischen Mönchskutte.“
Ullas Mann ergänzte. „Und darum sucht Ulla die Reinkarnation ihres Großvaters unter thailändischen Mönchen.“

Air Jordan V (5) “Black Laney” – Another Look

AJV Black Laney

A few days ago we got news the Air Jordan V (5) “Black Laneys” are planning to release sometime before the end of the year. Not only is that exciting for all sneakerheads but also very reminiscent of the Air Jordan V (5) “Black Grapes” that released right along with the Retro “Grapes.” The all black upper Air Jordan V (5) is a ill retro with a blue and yellow midsole and a blue tint translucent outsole. The tongue is also black with blue Jumpman branding and other signature features such as what looks to be MJ’s high school crest on the side towards the heel. The blue shark teeth along the side of the shoe are speckled with bright yellow which just may be consumers favorite detail on these kicks; along with the yellow/clear lace locks of course. AJAddiction shows us some detailed images of these dope kicks whose counterpart, the “Laney” V, is set to drop on November 2nd so look out for these possibly dropping around then as well. Are you feeling these Air Jordan V (5) Retro “Black Laneys” the most out of all of the Jordan Vs dropped in 2013? Let us know in the comments section below and stick to Sneaker Files for release info on these and much more!

BRONX NEWS: Bronx campaigners didn’t go ’round hungry

These candidates are darn hungry. And not just for votes.

After digesting the expense logs that were filed by Bronx City Council candidates in the runup to Tuesday’s primaries, there can be little doubt that campaigning is an endeavor best conducted on a full stomach.

Two hopefuls who ran in Tuesday’s primary — Joel R. Rivera and Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo — seemingly turned their favorite diners into de-facto offices, eating virtually the same meal, day in and day out, over the course of the campaign season.

So, what fuels a Bronx run for office?

Chicharron de pollo, according to Rivera.

“That’s the winning meal,” he said with a toothy grin, referring to the boneless chicken dish.

Rivera, the Deomcratic candidate who’s seeking to replace the term-limited Council Majority Leader of the same name, led the pack coming down the stretch — and the buffet line, as well.

RELATED: DEM JOEL R. RIVERA’S REPUBLICAN PROBLEM

The community relations associate, no relation to the Councilman he hopes to succeed, dined at El Nuevo Valle on Jerome Ave. a whopping 44 times over a five-month stint. That’s an average of 3 .4 visits per week.

Rivera, who will also run on the Republican line in November, often ate both lunch and dinner at the Dominican chicken joint.

“Some of my staff would get tired of it,” the candidate said , noting that his second favorite spot to grab a snack was Little Caesar’s Pizza.

A somewhat curious choice, considering that the district Rivera hopes to represent includes Belmont and Arthur Ave., the borough’s empire for Italian eats.

Rivera guessed that he shelled out nearly a quarter of his campaign funds on food for his volunteers.

Those are some rich provisions, considering that rival Ritchie Torres spent nary a dime on grub over the course of his run (The 24-year-old candidate paid all of his workers a salary, a source close to the campaign told The News).

Donors may not realize that when they write a check to support their candidate of choice, their dollars may be going right down the proverbial hatch.

RELATED: ‘PHONY’ COUNCILWOMAN WILL STAY ON BALLOT

Arroyo, for example, reported that she’s spent nearly ,000 on “meetings” at the low-key Clock Bar since she launched her bid for re-election in the South Bronx late last year.

The incumbent even dined at the Mott Haven meetingplace on three consecutive days in August, records showed. It’s rumored that she favors the cheese board and a glass of malbec.

“She’s a great woman,” said bartender Barbara Fleury. “She is here a couple nights a week.”

Fleury, a Boston transplant, moved to the Bronx a few months ago and hasn’t yet registered to vote in the city, but said she would support Arroyo.

The Councilwoman’s meetings at the Clock Bar — which was redisticted out of Arroyo’s territory — added up to 1.25 in expenses, according to the Campaign Finance Board.

Arroyo’s challenger, businessman Julio Pabon, spent far less on food during his run. The upstart candidate listed pizza as his go-to grub when hitting the campaign trail.

“I have a crew that must be the most health-conscious — or the cheapest — group of workers and volunteers in all of the races,” Pabon said.

“We either go to a local store, or we grab a slice of pizza,” the candidate added. “We’re simple.”
