Snaps: Naked x New Balance Take Over Copenhagen

Snaps: Naked x New Balance Take Over Copenhagen

A long time ago, my mother told me there would come a day when I preferred comfort and functionality over style. While that day hasn't necessarily arrived when it comes to my sneaker collection, I will say that comfort is a huge factor when I make a purchase these days because, why pay for a dope shoe that looks good, but feels crappy? Nobody has time (or money) for that. That said, is the New Balance 990GL3 the most visually appealing shoe we've ever seen? Nope. Is it one of the more comfortable models in recent memory? Abso-freakin-lutely.

Our favorite overseas lady sneaker boutique, Naked CPH, decided to showcase this oft-ignored silhouette in a few out-and-about snaps. The streets of Copenhagen set the stage for the NB 990GL3 and showed us that comfort can look pretty darn good.

If you'd like to get your hands on a pair of the New Balance 990GL3 (and if you happen to be anywhere near Copenhagen) join Naked CPH on Friday at Naked Pilestræde for the release of the iconic running shoe. Cold beers will also be there for your taking so, yea, go and be merry.

If you're posted up in the US, Naked will release the shoe online on Friday, October 16th at Nakedcph.com at 19.00 CET.

Snaps: adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott 2015 Fall/Winter Lookbook

Snaps: adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott 2015 Fall/Winter Lookbook

Jeremy Scott pairs hippie movement-inspired looks with basketball-themed swag in his latest collection for adidas Originals.

The venerable designer (and celeb fave) returns once again with a look at the Fall/Winter 2015 offering, which offers a varied mix for both men and women. Inspired by the hippie movement in the ’60s and ’70s, the collection draws from the “flower power” look of bright-printed jackets, shorts, and barely there bikini sets...because Fall/Winter in California looks completely different, y'all.

Faux fur is also added to the mix along with an interwoven basketball jersey dress that will probably turn up on Katy Perry sometime this year. The gallery is topped off with another look at the Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals “B-Ball” Wings hi-tops, which are available now. The rest of Jeremy's colorful collection will hit retailers on September 11.

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.
