And, after all, with the price they paid at a time when GMs were starting to shy away from overpaying for power, especially for players in their 30s, shouldn’t they have had the upper hand in negotiations?

adidas Yung 1 Releases on First Official Day of Summer

Encapsulating the spirit of early 2000’s aesthetics while equally taking design inspiration from brand archives, adidas Originals today official reveals its long-awaited Yung 1. Widely thought to be the shoe that effectively champions the NMD and the ZX Flux before it, the silhouette is set to release, fittingly, on the first official day of summer ’18.

Set to launch on June 21 in conjunction with the start of a new season, simplicity engulfs the Falcon Dolf inspired style that employs traditional mesh construction joined by nubuck overlays and timely embroidered details. With no Boost or Bounce to speak of, the adidas Yung 1 is true to its ’90s roots with molded EVA cushioning tooling juxtaposed against a tricolored rubber outsole finish.

Adidas will debut this highly coveted style in an introductory Collegiate Navy/Red-White colorway. The shoe will be available on adidas.com/Originals next Thursday for 0.

Last week, Nike took a trip down memory lane to examine the origins of the “PlayStation” Air Force 1. Sure, the retrospective was informative, but it was also made to set the table for a sequel, which has recently surfaced online. This year’s model sports a matte black leather upper, complemented with tonal patent leather paneling and a puffy jewel Swoosh. The same iridescent effect on the Swoosh is repeated on the shoe’s heel panels, both of which are adorned with PlayStation branding. We’re waiting on release details, but it’s rumored that the launch could occur soon, coinciding with this week’s E3 conference.

IKEA Offers a First Look at Its MARKERAD Collaboration With Virgil Abloh

At its annual Democratic Design Days event, IKEA previewed pieces from the brand’s upcoming MARKERAD collection with Virgil Abloh. “Given how tremendous this opportunity is,” says the acclaimed designer, “I’m not content to just make another chair.” Instead, Abloh’s take on the home furnishing staple has a triangular red doorstop supporting the base of one of the legs, an “interruption” that elevates the “anonymous, everyday icons that we use without noticing.” Along with the doorstop, IKEA previewed a glass cabinet, encased in a wooden frame with transparent glass panels and a red handle in the shape of a nail, and a rug that’s essentially a giant IKEA receipt. 

The MARKERAD collection will hit IKEA stores in 2019.

Nike Dominates First Quarter 2018 Sneaker Sales

Last year, in 2017, the sales gap between Nike and adidas had significantly lessened. Adidas was moving in on Nike and its subsidiaries, including and especially Jordan Brand. But in the first quarter of 2018 sales are heavily slanted in Nike’s favor, with many of the top sellers at the end of 2017 for adidas nowhere to be found.

According to data accumulated by Matt Powell of the NPD Group, the ten top-selling sneakers from February through April by dollar sales are all Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse sneakers.

Adidas, who had great success from models like the Superstar and Tubular Shadow last year, saw sales from those two model drop off substantially. Nike, however, shines thanks to budget-friendly and widely available styles like the Tanjun, which ranks as the highest-selling sneaker of the quarter. Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 11 Low “Cool Grey” holds second position while the beloved Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ranks third.

Surprisingly, considering the shoe only debuted at retail in March, Nike’s Air Max 270 is the fourth best-selling sneaker of the first quarter. Converse, a Nike subsidiary, sees its Chuck Taylor All Star Low crack the list at sixth.

One might think that the adidas Yeezy collection would certainly find placement on the list considering the collections popularity. Yet given the limited number of pairs produced, the scale simply isn’t larger enough to compete on this much wider playing field.

Adidas is however widely represented in the world of soccer. They now outfit more World Cup teams than Nike.

A First Look at the adidas Harden LS 2 Buckle

Although James Harden has won the Western Conference title before, years ago with the Oklahoma City Thunder, this year’s opportunity to champion the west is vastly different. He’s now a superstar of his own team and likely the leagues MVP, leading the Rockets against the dominating Golden State Warriors and his former teammate, Kevin Durant.

With the series tied 2-2 and Game 5 in Houston tonight, Harden is gearing up for the biggest moment of his career thus far. In doing so, he’ll lace up his second signature silhouette — the adidas Harden Vol. 2. But when the season ends, whatever form that takes for Harden, the Beard will have a budding lifestyle variation of his signature shoe to canvas the summer.

The adidas Harden LS 2 Buckle stands as the second iteration of his Harden LS series. It’s most noteworthy feature are criss-cross straps that lay overtop the smooth mixed material upper. A juxtaposition of tumbled leather and suede give the LS 2 Buckle a premium aesthetic, while full-length Boost midsole tooling below ensure comfort is also at its height.

A more traditional form of leather marks the heel of the striking new style while its outsole appears in a rigid textile with tiny grooves for proper traction. The adidas Harden LS 2 Buckle is set to debut in black/white and olive-green colorways. Expect the release on May 28 at select three stripes retailers.

Carmelo Anthony’s Air Jordan 2 PE Returns for the First Time

Image via: Nike

The Air Jordan 2 is arguably one of the least popular models from the franchise’s early legacy lineup, but this particular colorway — featuring Varsity Maize and University Blue accents on a white leather base — works exceedingly well on the bulky silhouette. Of course, the color scheme is inspired by the Denver Nuggets, as the shoe was Carmelo Anthony’s PE during his rookie season in the Mile High City. Melo branding on the custom sockliner and inner tongue completes the look. Jordan Brand is celebrating the 15th anniversary of Carmelo’s NBA career by bringing back his Air Jordan 2 PE for the first time. You can purchase yours from select Jordan retailers beginning on June 9.

Release Date: 6/9/18 (Saturday)

adidas Debuts Speedfactory AM4LA, First Performance Runner Produced from Parley Ocean Plastic

Innovation and the stories that support are not only foundational principles for great sneakers, but critical for pushing forward the culture they inhabit. Adidas today leans generously on both with the introduction of its first performance running shoe produced with Parley ocean plastic — the adidas Speedfactory AM4LA.

Produced at adidas’ digitally automated Speedfactory facility, the ecologically conscious shoe is masterfully crafted from ocean waste in both a modern and sustainable effort that has helped push the brand past its counterparts where eco-innovation is concerned.

The AM4LA features a 100% recycled upper that contains Parley Ocean Plastic yarns, with each pair representing 11 plastic bottles that would otherwise litter our water supply. Not to mention effectively poison mother nature. A revelatory Primeknit fabrication is produced to ensure the shoe is ecologically principled yet also acts as a performance enhancement through its remarkable fit that keeps runners feet cool and dry with premium ventilation.

Full-length Boost cushioning is also in place alongside the innovative floating Torsion bar for heightened mobility. Ben Herath, adidas VP for Running Design, champions both as tools to help deliver an incredible running experience. “The AM4LA shoe demonstrates the potential and flexibility of adidas SPEEDFACTORY to evolve and integrate new materials and technology that deliver progress towards solutions to current and new challenges.”

To celebrate the launch of the AM4LA, adidas is opening up a SPEEDFACTORY Lab Experience in Santa Monica, California. Guests will have the opportunity to be the first to receive custom, private footscan data to learn understand their running pattern, get shareable content tied to the AM4LA, and test run with the shoe through various interactive experiences.

The adidas Speedfactory AM4LA will be made available for purchase on May 25. Pairs will be on sale at adidas Santa Monica located at 1337A 3rd Street Promenade and select Consortium retailers for 0 USD. A wider release will follow on June 2 at adidas.com.

Rolls-Royce’s First Ever SUV Comes With a $325,000 Price Tag

Image via: Rolls-Royce

Image via: Rolls-Royce

After years of teasing, Rolls-Royce has unveiled its first ever SUV, the Cullinan, named after the largest diamond ever discovered. The vehicle is intended to take luxury to the next level, with a starting price of 5,000. For those who can afford it, you’ll get various amenities like heated front door armrests and rear side armrests, an entire backrest panel crafted from a single piece of leather and a glass partition separating the passenger cabin from the luggage compartment. Outside, the grille is constructed from hand-polished stainless steel, and the Cullinan’s massive body — it’s wider and heavier than the Bentley Bentayga, weighing in at over 5,800 pounds — rides on 22-inch wheels with narrow sidewall tires. Its off-road capabilities are coupled with a smooth ride, thanks to the same computer-controlled self-leveling air shocks found on the Wraith, Ghost, and Phantom road cars. Additionally, a new double-wishbone front axle and five-link rear improves agility, stability, and lateral control while steering. Under the hood is a 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 good for 562 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, ultimately delivering a top speed of 155 mph. All-wheel drive and an all-wheel steering system are standard features.

Well-heeled customers will have the chance to purchase the Cullinan at the end of the year.
