While Amar’e Stoudemire wasn’t among the athletes that appeared in that initial Nike Sportswear Tech Pack promo clip, it appears that he’s a pretty big fan of the apparel anyway. Shown here is the New York Knicks star dipped in a full sweatsuit of the gear, with the Air Jordan 4 “Toro” showing up as his footwear of choice (Despite the availability of the rather “Knicks” looking Craig Ehlo pair from last year). Continue reading for more on Amar’e enjoying the NYC weather with this coveted pair of Jordans on and stay tuned to see what he’ll be wearing once the NBA season starts up.

nike-air-max-terra-180-oreo

Originally introduced as part of the Nike Air Max 180 “Terra” Pack back in April, today welcomes our first clear look at the forthcoming “Oreo” colorway.

As the Nike Air 180 has withstood the hands of time, this rendition of the classic runner offers up a simple black and white colorway with stealth options and the addition of an Oreo-inspired speckled midsole.

Harking back to the previous three decades when innovation transformed running shoes forever, adidas Orignals presents the Run Thru Time pack for Fall/Winter 2013.

Rendered in an introductory collegiate silver and green colorway, the ZXZ ADV is inspired by the legendary ZX 500, the brand’s flagship distance running shoe when it debuted in the mid-’80s. The ZX 5000, carrying a collegiate silver and red colorway, is based on the Response Trail from 1994 while combining the support and stability of the ZX 5000 from 1989. Finally, the Adizero Adios 2 in collegiate silver with blue accenting features a micro-fit upper, grippy continental rubber outsole and a lively midsole, making it the fastest running flat in the world. The collection is available now at select adidas Originals retailers.

BRONX NEWS: Another charter school space race

A city plan to put a charter school in the same building as two public schools would edge out local students and may create an unsafe environment, say parents and local educators.

Opponents rallied last week at a public hearing to slam the city for proposing to put the Icahn Charter High School inside the Gunther Ave. building that already houses the respected Pelham Gardens Middle School and the low-ranking Junior High School 144.

Foes say the plan would displace public school students as the new charter school’s enrollment grows, while others said high schoolers and middle schoolers should not be in the same building for safety reasons.

RELATED: GONZALEZ: SUCCESS FOR EVA, NOT PS

“We’re not sitting well with this proposal at all,” said Diane Norris, co-chairwoman of Community Board 11’s education committee. “I am vehemently against the idea.”

The objections may be about more than physical space, but about the charter school’s perceived elitism. Students who graduate from the middle schools will not be eligible to attend the high school because Icahn reserves slots only for graduates of its own charter middle school.

“They will only be accepting kids from those seven Icahn schools,” said Cheryl Cross-Smith, recording secretary for Community Education District 11.

RELATED: BEATING DOWN THE DOORS

But Jeffrey Litt, the head of the Icahn Charter Schools, said four of Icahn’s seven schools are in the local district, and the high school’s enrollment would be capped at about 320 to keep class sizes small.

Besides, Litt said, the city chose the proposed site — not Icahn.

“This is what the Department of Education offered us,” Litt said, “based upon their analysis of available space.”

The 13-member Panel for Educational Policy will vote on Oct. 15.

“We’re not opposed to the charter high school,” said Pamela Johnson, president Community Education District Council 11. “We don’t want them mixed up with the middle school.”
