Snaps: PUMA and Vashtie Travel To New Delhi For Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

Snaps: PUMA and Vashtie Travel To New Delhi For Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

Earlier this year, PUMA and NYC-based creative Vashtie kicked (see what I did there?) off 2015 with Vashtie's debut signature Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.  Now, the two parties re-up, and make the trek to New Delhi, for snaps of their new essentials comprised of Fall/Winter footwear and apparel. New takes on the PUMA R698 and States Mid carry much of the weight of this collection as premium materials matched with interesting color selections (read: metallic gold, tri-tone gray and navy/yellow R698 offerings - see below) make for a dynamic second showing from Vashtie.

Each sneaker comes equipped with the German brand’s signature Trinomic sole, alongside all the other classic design features of the retro runner.

Look for the PUMA x Vashtie Fall/Winter 2015 Collection to hit UK retailers like Offspring and PUMA’s website in the next few months.

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 Google.com. 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.

m_55583105bcd4a735da00a622

m_55583106cadd6a511700a604

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.

Kehlani x Mr. Carmack Go ‘All In’ On New Collab For Yours Truly & adidas Originals

Kehlani is fast becoming one of my favorite sneaker-loving women AND in constant rotation on my Spotify cue so, when she linked with producer Mr. Carmack for this here new piece of fruit I pretty much pressed play and didn't look back. We have YoursTrulySF and adidas Originals to thank for "All In" which acts as the latest addition to their "Songs From Scratch" series. The track finds Kehlani at a crossroads with her partner, wanting a stronger commitment and keeping it 100 in the process. Sound familiar, ladies? Carmack combines beautiful beats with haunting strings and piano chords that make "All In" something I'll be streaming for awhile. Bet that.

For more background on the full process behind "All In," you can read the full rundown here. Peep the BTS video below.
