Last night, we joined Reebok and Kendrick Lamar for a once-in-a-lifetime experience through the streets of Los Angeles. As Kendrick performed on a flatbed truck, we followed in Reebok’s ZPump Fusion sneakers.
The upper is a lightweight fusion sleeve and seamless compression sleeve that fuses The Pump technology to any runners foot.
The innovative pump technology fills a cage with air that molds to the runners foot for a secure and custom fit. You don’t need to worry if the shoe will fit anymore.
Finally, a ZRATED outsole is inspired by high-performance ZRated tires for ultimate control in and out of turns.
Red Wing Heritage has recently launched a new e-commerce platform on their website. It is officially the one place where you can purchase the brand’s entire range in North America.
Two spring highlights that are currently available on the site are the Foreman Chukka and highlighted here, the Postman Oxford.
Originally developed in the 1950s as a comfortable walking shoe for U.S. postal workers, the Red Wing Heritage Postman is a sturdy black oxford with a moldable base. This style is now available Charcoal Rough & Tough and Olive Mojave leather.
The Nike Air Max 1 “Patch.” sneaker collection will come with 22 patches, with each referencing key people, places, and moments in the Air Max’s evolution. From the thee-letter symbols of Tokyo (TKO), London (LDN), Milan (MLN), New York City (NYC), Paris (PRS), and Shanghai (HAI), while giving subtle nods to Tinker Hatfield with TH87 and TH90 markings.
The Air Max 1 was famously designed by Tinker Hatfield and for this rendition it has been crafted with a no-sew mud-guard, a premium, canvas upper, and polyester overlays on the heel and tongue.
The three coloways, black, beige and olive (not shown here) was made available at NikeLab locations on February 26 but you can still get a pair at select retailers on March 12.
Adapted from Red Wing Heritage’s classic work chukka, the Foreman Chukka is crafted with the same attention to durability and comfort. The neoprene outsole was designed to provide traction and long-wearing support.
Unlike the classic work chukka, the upper of the leather boots is constructed with matching stitching to give off a cleaner look that allows the boot to be worn for work or for more formal occasions.
The boots are made at Red Wing Shoe Company’s Plant II, each of the leathers is also manufactured locally in Red Wing, MN at S.B. Foot Tanning Company.

For Autumn/Winter 2015, Kanye West and adidas Originals unveil a bold new proposition: YEEZY SEASON 1, a collection of men’s and women’s apparel and footwear that cherishes universality and timelessness.
Presented during New York Fashion Week just before NBA All-Star Weekend, the show was conceptualized by West in close collaboration with renowned contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft.
Described by West as the world’s first “solutions-based” clothing line, the individual pieces define a style that matches the relentless pace of contemporary lives. “I don’t want the clothes to be the life,” he says. “I want the clothes to help the life.”
Showcased above is the highly anticipated Kanye West for adidas Originals Yeezy 750 Boost sneaker. Which is a high-top featuring a suede upper, a perforated toebox, forefoot strap and lateral zip-up closure. Finally, the innovative adidas BOOST sole is executed in white.
