Wish List: New Balance WMNS “Tartan” Pack

The words "expanding women's portfolio" are always a terrific look when it comes to sneaker brands so, when we heard New Balance was stepping up there she-sneaker game, we took immediate notice. The brand adds two popular mid-90's men's silhouettes to it's female-friendly offering with a brand new take on the 999 and the 1600.  The "Tartan" Pack is inspired by the bagpipes and kilts of Scotland legend and features premium suede uppers with pops of tartan on toes, tongues, and sneaker collars.

The Tartan Pack will be available starting on July 1 via retailers like BAIT and Rime, with prices ranging from $110 to $120 USD.

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.

CNK Wish List: Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire "Wolf Grey"

While grey might be a bit less appealing to some of you ladies who find more joy in a good leopard print, you'll probably find the same number of women who (like myself) have an affinity for the simple silhouettes. For this crowd, the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire "Wolf Grey" offers tonal appeal mixed with the same kick swag we're used to with the AM1. nike-air-max-1-ultra-moire-wolf-grey-02-960x640
