Wish List: adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost

Images via Hypebeast I've been promising myself that I'd nab a pair of those adidas Boosts for quite some time, but this Climachill may just give me the boost (yup...pun intended) that I've needed. As adidas moves forward with its proprietary sneaker technologies, the adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost combines two of those technologies (primeknit and boost) on this here solo shoe.

While the Climachill cuts down on the Boost technology utilized in the Ultra Boost, that also makes it a little less pricey ringing in at $140 instead of the $180 for the Ultra. Add the dope color way and it's safe to say that I'll be snagging these cozy beauties right now at adidas.

What are your thoughts on the adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost?

CNK Wish List: Adidas Ultra Boost Collection w/ Stella McCartney

February 2015 found adidas following up the Kanye Boost release with the news that their flagship Boost-cushioned running shoe, the Ultra Boost, would be the foundation for the Ultra Boost Collective. The goal of the Ultra Boost Collective seems to shift towards embracing both a high-performance sneaker and a fashion staple, featuring creative collaborative designs by the likes of Stella McCartney, Kris Van Assche, kolor’s Junichi Abe, and adidas Creative Directors Dirk Schönberger & James Carnes.

Kicking off the collective is the just-unveiled silhouette by none other than Stella McCartney. Already a long-time collaborator with adidas, McCartney restructures the upper of the Ultra Boost and opts for a black/smoked pink/eggshell color palette paired with mesh side panels and striped detailing on the toes and heels.


The Ultra Boost by Stella McCartney will be available exclusively in London in honor of the London Marathon on April 25th. It will be available globally on May 8th and will retail for $295 USD.

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!
