The shoe you see above is called the adidas Futurepacer. This new adidas model is a new hybrid design that combines elements from the past (Micropacer) and future (NMD).
The adidas Futurepacer utilizes an upper inspired by the Micropacer, whereas the heel and full-length Boost cushioning design is borrowed from the NMD. This particular colorway comes dressed in a Grey, White, Black and Blue color scheme. Details on the shoe include the shroud on the upper, an array of materials used for the construction of the shoe, a heel pull tab, the EVA inserts on the Boost midsole and the small heel counter right above the Boost midsole.
Above you will get a good look at the adidas Crazy BYW Solar Pink courtesy of Pharrell Williams. Said to be the artist’s very own rendition/colorway of the model, the adidas Crazy BYW Solar Pink comes dressed in a Black, Footwear White and Solar Pink color scheme. The upper is composed out of a Black and Pink Primeknit construction, while the sole utilizes a Boost cushioned midsole. Standout design features include the “AMBITION” branding running down the foot, striped laces, and the Black sock collar and heel pull tab.
A selection of work by Barcelona-based artist Guim Tió. Describing Tió’s work as a “breath of fresh air” — one that forces us to take a break from our lives and luxuriate in “the pause” — art critic Gisela Chillida sees Tio’s latest paintings as an exercise in imagination rather than recollection:
“If his last portraits were an exercise about memory, the new landscapes seem to think about the tomorrow that will soon be today. Previously he used to ask himself, where do we come from? Now, he wants to know, where are we going? That’s why the characters no longer remember or forget but, contemplate and imagine.”
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand, this is a video of the evolution of Hot Wheels cars, complete with pop-up landmark years for the toys. I learned a lot by watching it — mostly, that I’d forgotten about those heat-activated color-changing cars that were released in 1988. Those were pretty sweet. Man, I can still remember the first time I was finally able to rip the wheels off a Hot Wheels car and jam them up my nose and have to go to the ER to get them removed. “Um, what?” *reminiscing fondly* Those were simpler times.
