The more I see this Saucony Grid SD the more I like it. I’m usually not a fan of purple/pink shoes but it just pops really nicely on this pair.

Is This Actually The adidas Yeezy Boost 550

It looks like the image you see above is an actuall pair of the upcoming adidas Yeezy Boost 550. We’ve heard an endless amount of rumors and seen a handful of images regarding what the shoe will actually look like, but it looks like this is the one.

If you take a close look at the picture you will see that the shoe has a higher ankle cut compared to the Yeezy Boost 350, sort of making it a semi-low top sneaker. The upper still comes in Primeknit construction, the only difference is the new patterns placed on the shoe. Another notable and new feature comes by way of the outsole shape as it now comes with a more sleek motif and a translucent appearance. For whatever it’s worth, the tags also read Yeezy Boost 550. No word yet on when these will drop, but keep it locked as more information begins to arise. Also, be sure to visit our adidas Yeezy Boost 550 hub page for all the latest info and images regarding this potential release.

Author’s Take

Don’t really see much of a difference between this pair and the 350. In my opinion, it’s kind of redundant. With that being said, you damn well these are still going to sell out.

If the Swoosh would have been made of suede and done in Team Red this Tennis Classic would have looked so much better. I like that this colorway has Team Red on it, there’s just not enough of it.

HUV: An Innovative Way To Display Your Sneakers

To many people such as myself, sneakers are a form of art. Art is meant to be displayed. While for the most part, all of my sneakers are kept inside their boxes, I’m always looking for new and creative ways to show them off. The market is flooded with different types of cases/displays that help show off your prized possessions. Today we add another way to do so. Introducing the HUV.

Developed by Sam Li, the HUV it that latest and most futuristic way to display your sneakers, or anything else for that matter. What makes this different from everything else out there is the fact that HUV is a levitating turntable that uses MAG LEV technology to display and rotate your sneakers all while being levitated. This new technology is a reversed polarity on a low magnetic field to create a hover effect. It can hold up to 400 grams (a little more than 14 ounces), while an XL version hold up to 500 grams (17.6 ounces). Add in the fact that the base comes with display LED lights and you’ve got yourself a pretty sweet display setup. Check out the teaser video above as it highlights how exactly the HUV works. As of right now, the HUV is currently in its crowd funding stage. If you’d like to see these release to the public you can donate and support the HUV team here.

I’m a fan of the silhouette overall. The colorway is pretty solid and versatile. It’s suitable for both males and females in my view, but unfortunately large sizing is pretty limited.

NFL Players Go Broke Because They Buy Too Many Jordans

We’ve seen too many cases of professional athletes squandering their multi-million dollar contracts not long after retirement. There’s even a great ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about how sports stars lose what seems like an unlimited bank account, but thanks to financial advisors and simply learning from the mistakes of others, pro athletes today are much more prudent with their money. Still, broke athletes aren’t a thing of the a past, and apparently one reason, according to ESPN, why pro athletes drain their accounts too quickly is that they buy too many Jordans. That’s right – ESPN thinks that one reason why players go broke is the massive collections of shoes that sit deadstock or collecting dust after one wear. It’s far down their list of items that contribute to athletes losing it all, but what do you think? Are Jordans, and sneakers in general, a cause for their financial strains?
