After collaborating for 2018’s HYPEFEST, Lacoste and Chinatown Market have linked again for a release that draws on the latter’s streetwear influences and merges them with the former’s classic silhouettes.   Since launching four years ago, Chinatown Market has become renowned globally for its nostalgic products, ranging from apparel and sneakers, to basketballs, rugs and collectibles.

Nike Comemorates Eliud Kipchoge’s Sub 2-Hour Marathon with Special Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%

Arguably the finest distance runner the world has ever seen, Eliud Kipchoge secured a permanent place in sports history when he ran the first ever sub-2 hour marathon on October 12, 2019 with an early prototype of Nike‘s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% on his feet. Since that day, man and divisive, carbon fiber plate-equipped shoe have been forever intertwined, so Nike Running is paying homage to Kipchoge’s feat with a special edition of the NEXT%.   Uppers are made of feather-light Atomknit, an evolution of Flyknit tech that’s looser in the forefoot for breathability and tighter in the heel for support. A large, printed black Swoosh stretches from toebox to lateral midfoot, while heels read 1:59:40 (left shoe) and EK (right shoe), a nod to Kipchoge’s final time and his initials....

While we saw a leaked America’s Cup design earlier this month, Prada and adidas have announced three new iterations of their collaborative Superstar sneakers. The classic kicks highlight the timelessness of both the sneaker silhouette and the luxury house.     Built upon craftsmanship as the core value, the Prada Superstars are made by the Italian label’s footwear specialists, combining sportswear with luxury fashion. The unisex design arrives in a simple, white colorway with black splashed onto the Three Stripes and heel tab, with a Trefoil logo added for contrast. Meanwhile, the monochromatic black version is accentuated with both label’s logos emerging in white on the laterals and rear. Rounding off the range is a chrome silver iteration, which comes with a metallic base on the upper, along with a clean white shade...

How to find mental clarity in 2020’s misery? Some people stress-busted with puzzles, others found clarity in gardening.
