Extra Butter has linked up with Reebok to create the Extra Butter x Reebok Workout Plus Dear Downtown collab. Dubbed the “Dear Downtown,” this Workout Plus pays tribute to New York’s Lower East Side. It comes dressed in a full grain leather upper with distressed Black denim, stitching on the toe and heel and a set of colored/patterned laces. Other features include the dual branding on the tongue and heel and the checkered print on both the insoles and heel pull tab. Aside from the shoe, the collection will also include apparel as a nod to the 1980s.
One of our favorite tracks of 2017.
J Hus has unravelled the creative process behind his 2017 blockbuster single ‘Did You See’.
Discussing the song for the latest episode of the Beats by Dr. Dre Beat x Beat series, alongside producer Jae5, the UK star explains how he wrote the song after attending a block party. “I had a two bar in my head, ‘did you see what I done came in a black benz left in a white one,’” he recalls.
After taking the track to Jae5, the marimbas became the starting point of the song. “Once I heard that sound, the whole track was already done in my head,” recalls the beatmaker.
The Underwater Photographer of the Year photo competition has just unveiled its winners for 2018. The photos provide gorgeous glimpses into the aquatic world that’s normally out of sight.
Up-and-coming underwater photographer of the year – winner. “Roar” by ManBd (Malaysia). Location: Yos Dive Lembeh house reef. While the photographer was shooting these three nudi a moray eel suddenly appeared out of the blue totally changing the composition. As the judge noted: “the result is a superb demonstration of blur which I would never have believed would work against the three nudis. The soft left eye of the moray together with the gleaming white teeth towards the bottom round off this image”. (Photo by ManBd UiDive/UPY 2018)
