“I mean listen, we talkin’ bout laces. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin’ bout laces. Not a game, not a, not a, not the game that I go out there and die for, and play every game like it’s my last. Not the game. We talkin’ bout laces, man. I mean how silly is that? We talkin’ bout laces.”
That’s how Allen Iverson would address these Gucci White Slip-On Sneakers ($495). Lace-free and distraction-free. Just shove that giant hoof inside and understand what $495 of blue snakeskin feels like. I imagine it feels like warm butter on your feet.

Fans of Back to the Future II don’t soil yourself. Nike will be releasing shoes with power laces sometime in 2015, just like the ones Marty McFly wore in the movie. Designer Tinker Hatfield (very cool name) was at the Jordan Brand’s Flight lab space in New Orleans where he was asked about power laces. “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” Hatfield exclaimed. And so the wait begins.

Kanye West sold out his most recent collection for A.P.C. last year. His fashion fans crashed A.P.C.’s website in search of $120 white t-shirts and $280 sweatshirts. Naturally, A.P.C. gave him another collection this year.
He explained that ‘paint colors’ inspired his collection as “had the modern family, which he described as ‘me, Kim and North’ living a ‘jet-set life’ between New York, Paris and Los Angeles”. So basically, colors inspired him, as well as him just looking around his private jet. Nice.
Take a look at his collection and try to predict this season’s best sellers.
Be a modern-day Superman and wear this jacket like a cape.

Back in September 1985, Nike released the original Air Jordans in a black and varsity red colorway to match the Chicago Bulls uniform. Known as the “Bred” color scheme, it’s become the most recognized Air Jordan release and the shoe that kickstarted Nike and sneaker endorsements. At the time though, David Stern and the NBA weren’t having that, issuing a letter to Nike informing them that they violated league rules.
Stern fined Jordan $5,000 every time he wore them. That didn’t stop Jordan from lacing them up during the season though.
Nike paid the fines for Jordan and even used their banned status as publicity in their Air Jordans commercial, creating an even greater aura around them.
Now, on December 28th, Nike releases the Air Jordans 1 “Bred”. They’ll be tough to get, but worth the $140. They might even make you jump higher and slam dunk, in spite of all that leftover turkey in your belly.
