Wish List: Even Benassi's Are Getting The Tech Fleece Treatment

I looks like the JDI edition of the Benassi will also be receiving Nike Sportswear's Tech Fleece treatment. The popular slide gets a semi seasonal make over (because, who really wears slides in cold weather?) for Fall 2015. Built on the comfy black footbed we've all come to know and love, the design sticks to the same aesthetic we've seen in Tech Fleece family: all grey and black everything.

Take a more detailed look below:




While I won't be stomping in the snow wearing these babies, I'll definitely to buy a pair to rock in the spring. For those of you thinking along the same lines, expect the slip-on Quickstrike to hit NSW spots (like Titolo) this Saturday, September 12th in limited quantities.

Snaps: Serena Williams Is Greatness In New Nike Court Collection

Strong. Powerful. Beautiful. Greatness is a word only reserved for a few and Serena Williams is one where the word comes naturally. The superstar Tennis player embarks upon the chance to pick up her 23rd Grand Slam over the next two weeks with the start of this year's US Open tonight. The folks at Nike spared no expense in acknowledging this feat with the release of Serena's very own Nike Court Collection.

Greatness is a word ripe with subjectivity. But when it comes to Serena Williams, there is no debate. Williams defines it. She has captured more trophies than need counting, always working towards the next, pushing herself and her sport to the next level. This summer proves her greatness all over again, and she's nowhere near done.

The collection, which hit stores and online on August 27, includes the NikeCourt Bomber Jacket and three different Nike sneaker silhouettes. Take a look below at the collection.

Throwback Kicks: Whitney Houston's 1991 Nike Cortez Runners

As the first mass-produced Nike running shoe (it started in 1971, folks), the Nike Cortez has been a staple in every sneaker-lovers life since most of us were in diapers. I remember (read: saw a picture of and remember the picture) wearing my mother's far too big white and blues around the house when I was barely old enough to feed myself in my high chair. So, in honor of this upcoming July 4th holiday I wanted to pay homage to a true classic in a way that is both fitting and patriotic. What do you get when you combine the National Anthem, one of the nation's most cherished voices, and the iconic Cortez? January 27, 1991.


On January 27, 1991 Whitney Houston took to the field at Super Bowl XXV and delivered one of the greatest renditions of the "Star Spangled Banner" of all time. And she was rocking the Cortez. Tensions were high as the Gulf War began to take root and Whitney's stirring performance was just what the nation needed to boost its patriotic spirit. So much so, that her version of our national song was released as a single the very next month.

Take a look below at Whitney's performance in full and, if you're feeling the need to Shop The Sneaks, head to Champs to nab your red and whites.

Snaps: Lily Aldridge Plays With The Boys in Nike x Puma

Supermodel Lily Aldridge, 29, channeled her inner Mia Hamm in her cover shoot for Self Magazine's July 2015 issue.  

The Victoria’s Secret Angel got to realize her long-held dream of playing ball with the pros. “This was one of the most fun shoots I’ve had,” she says. “It’s different for me to get to be athletic and look like the strong woman I am.” Aldridge tossed a football with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., challenged Los Angeles Lakers Wayne Ellington and Ronnie Price to a game of horse, went up against top-ranked AVP beach volleyball players Sean Rosenthal and Casey Patterson, and shot goals against the L.A. Galaxy’s Brian Rowe, Leonardo, Bradford Jamieson IV and Robbie Rogers all in Nike sneaks and cleats.

Take a look and shop the snaps below:





Top: Aldridge, playing football with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in Dress, Issa, $3,650; Bodysuit, $42; Arm sleeve, McDavid, $20; Cleats, $50; On him: Shirt, $85, tights, $50, socks, $18 for three pairs, and sneakers, $100;

E-Finds: Is Nike Jewelry Happening?

Photo: Desi Dollas Instagram How cool would it be to sport your favorite Air Maxes on your feet and in your pierced (since 9 months, POW!) ears? For me, the answer is most definitely. That said, I'm not here for the fakey fake and aside from the watches, rubber wrist bands, and those good ol' Nike Fuel bands, I've never seen a legit Nike jewelry push. That is, until I stumbled upon some interesting word play courtesy of one of CNKDaily's favorite sneaker-loving chicks.


Without going into detail about my fear of Nike costume jewelry, I'll just say that when I saw the above post I blinked rapidly and immediately made a beeline to my nearest Alas, this may be a plug or some inside info because I've found nothing in the way of a search for any new official Nike gems, however, I'm patiently keeping my eyes open and my Instagram scroll game tight.

Through my research thus far, it seems Nike LA may have the first move on this here (seemingly) super secret Air Max earring situation. While Desi (above) seems to have that prototype, a quick (read: 3) Google search pops up a pretty similar collection thanks to Nike Women Los Angeles and MissMeWinda's Poshmark $150.00 markup.



That Air Max earring looks mighty similar, don't cha think?

Nonetheless, nothing (read: NOTHING) is official until you hear the Nike News whistle sound, but to my Chicks who might be interested in some ear candy - this is a definite e-find.

We'll keep you up-to-date as we get more info.

Kicks Of The Day: Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! This weekend we took a bit of a siesta, but we are back with some pretty awesome kick choices from a few of your favorites.

E-Finds: Shop Jawn Reconstructed Sportswear Had Us At "Hey, Girl."

It's been awhile since we hit you with an e-find that we were particularly smitten about, so we were pretty much due for some e-commerce lust. Thankfully, Shop Jawn stumbled across my interweb path a few days ago when I was browsing the net. Cassie aka "Slim Jawn" created a few threads that, if I'm right, will make their way onto your personal wish lists very soon.

Based in the land of LA, Shop Jawn is the brain child of Cassie E. aka "Slim Jawn" who takes vintage and thrifted OG brand name gear and turns them into cut-and-sewn chic sportswear for those of us who can appreciate a good sweat/crop combo. See a few of my favorite looks from the Shop Jawn Instagram below:

Legit, right!? Unfortunately for us (and fortunately for the great souls who purchased the items when they were available) Cassie's sew house of awesome comes in extremely limited quantities - and no, she doesn't take custom orders, kids.

However, you can keep you eyes peeled to as Cassie adds more pieces to the e-store. Be sure to grab em up fast!
