Deion Sanders’ OG Nike Air Diamond Turf “Pro Bowl” PE

While the debate over who currently reigns as the league’s best defensive back continues to take turns each and every week, the argument involving the greatest defensive back of all time is rather lackluster as the consensus will choose one name: Deion Sanders. With his incomprable speed and blanketing cover skills, Sanders became one of the marquee […]

Run the Jewels on Ferguson: ‘Riots Work’

With the anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown approaching on August 9th, Run the Jewels opened up about Ferguson, Missouri in a new interview. Introducing themselves as “your fantasy utopian representation of race relations in the world,” El-P and Killer Mike tell the BBC about their experience performing near St. Louis when the Ferguson riots broke out and whether those riots instilled change in the community.

“Riots work. And I’ve never said it in that way before. But I’m an American because of that riot,” Killer Mike says, citing the Boston Tea Party. “So when people say riots don’t work: Ferguson was over 60 percent as a black community. They had less than 60 percent representation in politics, far less. Post-riots, they have two new black city council members, they have actual advocates in the community now, and the police chief retired. So if it was argued that riots worked for Ferguson, absolutely they did.”

After prosecutors revealed last November that police officer Darren Wilson would not be charged in Brown’s death, riots broke out throughout Ferguson. While a St. Louis Blues game scheduled for that night was canceled due to the protests, Run the Jewels still performed their concert at St. Louis’ Ready Room, with Killer Mike delivering an emotional seven-minute speech regarding the Brown shooting. “You kicked me on my ass today, because I have a 20-year-old son and a 12-year-old son, and I’m so afraid for them today,” Killer Mike told the audience.

“We had the weird, tragic and serendipitous experience of being the only band when the verdict was coming down in St. Louis to be attempting to get into St. Louis. Everybody else was driving as fast as they can out of St. Louis, “El-P told the BBC (via Pitchfork). “Every word you’re saying all of a sudden means a hundred times more than it meant the night before,” El-P said. “And to see my friend talk, I was crying onstage. It was very powerful.”

In August 2014, just days after Brown was killed, Killer Mike took to Instagram to convey his thoughts on the incident. “Don’t debate. Don’t insert your agenda,” he wrote. “Save me the bullshit Black On Black Crime speech and look at these [two] Noble creatures called humans and look at what [government]-sanctioned murder has done.”

Watch Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear’s Vintage ‘Silent Movies’ Video

Kansas City mother-son duo Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear have been riding a wave of buzz since the may release of their debut album Skeleton Crew. Now, the group has released a vintage-feeling video via Apple Music to accompany their catchy single, “Silent Movies.” The track is off the Kansas City pair’s debut album, Skeleton Crew.

The clip’s story comes from the youngest Ward and Uncle Friendly, who also directed it. In the video, a family is watching an old, black-and-white horror film before the camera takes the viewer inside the movie. There, an audience enters a room to watch a black-and-white clip of Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear performing. The duo is also in front of a screen that shows a seated audience in black-and-white as well, ending with the Wards becoming the audience and watching a screen in front of them.

Before getting signed to Glassnote Records, Madisen and Ruth Ward would perform at coffeehouses around Kansas City. They were soon featured on Letterman and CBS Sunday Morning and released Skeleton Crew in May. This summer, they joined Sufjan Stevens on tour across the U.S. and Europe and have also made the festival rounds, playing Newport Folk in July and preparing for a set at Philadelphia Folk Festival later this month.

The mother and son have announced their four-month “My Sister’s Boy” tour that kicks off in Kansas City on August 20th. Dates and tickets available at their official site.

This Week, Celebs Won’t Stop Dining at Craig’s and Carrying Great Bags

Celebrity-Bags-August-6

LA readers, please dish! When you dine at Craig’s, are you guaranteed at least three celebrity sightings? Because the flood of paparazzi photos coming from outside of Craig’s would certainly suggest as much. Craig’s is obviously one of the preferred paparazzi hotspots for any celeb looking to generate a little free publicity, and it’s also one of our best resources for fabulous, full frontal celeb handbag pics.

Craig’s has only been around since 2011, but it does have the classic look and vibe of a much older Hollywood haunt. In any case, I’ll definitely be making a reservation the next time I’m in town, and if I don’t at least bump into Rihanna or trip over Gigi Hadid, I’ll be sorely disappointed.

6 Fascinating Stories From New Balance’s Sneaker Archive







During our recent visit to the New Balance factory in the northern English village of Flimby, the Boston-based brand opened up a section of their sneaker archives for an exclusive peek at several storied made-in-England models. Senior Footwear Developer for New Balance Chris Hodgson walks us through some of the more interesting anecdotes in the brand’s footwear archive.

Microzine x New Balance 576

“This 576 looks like its been under a car, this was made for a very small company in Liverpool at the time. They bought 72 pairs of that shoe where 60 pairs looked like ordinary 576s with that stingray trim, and for 12 pairs we took the shoes and put them under a roughing wheel and made a mess of them because that’s what the guy wanted. They were all delivered to his store in Liverpool where he sold the 12 pairs in roughly an hour and struggled to sell the other 60 pairs so he actually went out and bought himself a dremel and reproduced that look onto all the remaining 60 shoes in the back of his own store.”

24 kilates x New Balance 1700 “Gaudi”

“Without looking too closely, in its widest sense, this 1700 is supposed to be a depiction of Gaudi’s Cathedral in Barcelona. It’s there to illustrate the sort of things that can be done with materials. That leather has been produced, tanned and finished. It then came to New Balance where we sent it to a third party to get that stained glass window printed onto it.”

Limited Edt x New Balance 577

“This black and red 577 was produced for a shop in Singapore named Limited Edt. Nothing out of the ordinary with the shoe, but how they sold it was fantastic. They bought aluminum combination-lock camera cases for all the shoes, put a pair of shoes in each case with a combination for each case. They set them up in sizes in their store, which looked like a vault, and you actually bought a ticket and the ticket had the combination code on it where you had to go and find your box with your size. The whole thing was a huge success.”

New Balance “Jacket” Pack

“The first real themed pack to be produced at Flimby in any real volume was the “Jacket” pack of three shoes, the first of which was supposed to represent an aviation jacket with the sheepskin lining, the second a U.S. bomber jacket and lastly the road workers favorite, the Donkey Jacket. They all did really well and that sort of set the whole thing off.”
