A First Look At The Upcoming adidas Originals x 424 Collab

Releasing next week, here is an official look at the adidas Originals x 424 collaboration.

424 was co-founded by Guillermo Andrade, whose determination to succeed was first forged during the arduous journey that he and his family took from his birthplace of Guatemala to the United States when he was just eight years old. As an adolescent, he channeled this determination into crafting an aesthetic that was wholly his own, one that would make him stand out amongst his peers. This formed the genesis of FourTwoFour on Fairfax, an iconic Los Angeles retail destination for those who also wanted to break from the norms and wear things a little differently. Continue reading

The All-New Nike ISPA Joyride Envelope Features A Unique Folding Upper

Nike has created a brand new silhouette along with their ISPA department utilizing their Joyride technology.

The tooling from the Nike Joyride NSW Setter (the “muscle car” of the Joyride family) offers a plush three-pod cushioning system. However, its upper, while tough, isn’t designed for quickly taking on and off, which can be difficult when attending dinner parties at shoes-off apartments or trying to navigate dressing rooms at packed sample sales. ISPA answers for these peculiarities of urban life, and the Nike ISPA Joyride Envelope explicitly adapts the Joyride NSW Setter for easy on, easy off use. Continue reading
