Back in August, designer Melody Ehsani posted the above pic on her instagram and I instantly got excited. This will be Melody's second collaboration with Reebok and it's scheduled to release early 2014. Having seen in person what seems like the final revision on Wednesday, November 6th at a Reebok focus group, I must say the pics do not do these babies any justice!   

When I first saw the pic, it instantly reminded me of one of my favorite artists Piet Mondrian because of the colors used.  The pair has a gum colored pump accentuated by a gum sole and features "Love" lace locks.  However, if you're a fan of the gold spikes they were m.i.a on the pair that I saw, which most likely won't be on the released version.  

Until the release of these beauties, you can copp the current "Love" gold sneakers  ON SALE HERE for $100 with sizes 6-11w available.

With the holiday season fast approaching, Jeremy Scott and Adidas Originals will be releasing a Holiday Bears pack.  Seemingly inspired by Christmas, the pack features gold and silver colorways with an upper reminiscent of  tinsel and a glittered sole.

The pack drops Friday, November 15th, at Adidas Originals retail stores and ADIDAS.COM 


Our friends over at Rime have teamed up with PUMA for their first collaboration to create the Luxe Sky Wedge.  Rime's owner Susan Boyle teamed up with PUMA to create a dope pair of sneakers that the women would love and the men could appreciate.

The Luxe Sky Wedge features an upper constructed of buttery gold foiled leather, two lace options of subtle sparkle and chevron, and golden PUMA lace locks. Double gold straps allows for versatile styling, there's a chevron detailed lining and my personal favorite part, the gum sole which turns almost any sneaker into an instant classic. 

Available in limited quantities December 6th at Rime in NYC, the PUMA x Rime Luxe Sky Wedge retails for $130 and is available for pre-order here.

On Wednesday, October 30th, Nike opened it's newest running store on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NY.   Located at 1131 3rd Ave, the store has all the accoutrements a runner may need and then some.  In addition to viewing the ribbon cutting, merchandise and the store's layout, I got to see the warm-up chant that even got me charged up and ready to go!  

Energy bars, pedometers, 3m backpack, sweatbands etc.

The store has two columns that's a visual collage of scenes, runners and Nike programs.

The store has an exclusive line dedicated to the 2013 NYC marathon.

If you're in the area and would like to go for a quick jog but have a few bags, stop by the store and use one of their lockers.  Your items will be safe while you dodge pedestrians and poodles on your run.

All over 3m jacket. A useful item for runners but it's a must have for lots of sneaker fiends.

One of the awesome features of the store, is the custom tailoring of the sports bras and jogger pants.  Something a short(5'2) person like myself can appreciate, having trouble finding something that fits just right.  You can be fitted and pick up your garment(s) within a few hours!

The women's wall not only features running sneakers but there's some wedges for the fashionistas!

Also on hand were the upcoming Nike Fuelband SE, featuring 3 new colorways.  They will be available for purchase November 6th.
