Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard the Yeezy just released his inaugural Yeezy Season 1 Collection. If you haven't dropped your hard earned cash yet, you may want to wait a couple of days for the Fear Of God Fall Pre-Order ($TBA) to drop. Because the clothing is truly something special.Before Yeezy dropped his first pair of kicks, he was wearing Fear Of God Clothing, by designer Jerry Lorenzo. And if you look at the two clothing lines you can easily see how Yeezy was influenced by this great designer. Everything from the longer lines to the simplicity in the cuts, are similar. Where they split is that Jerry's clothing tend to be more punk almost skinhead influenced while Kanye's veer towards a more dystopian feel.If you go to the Fear Of God website you can even catch a glimpse of Kayne in the promo videos.[gallery royalslider="1" ids="20897,20896,20895,20894,20893,20892,20891,20890,20889,20888,20887,20886,20885,20884,20883,20882"]Extremely religious, Jerry says that his clothing doesn't fit any of the standard molds of today's fashion industry. He says that his brand is a dedication to god. I believe this gives him the freedom to truly express his inner vision with his designs. Which are absolutely brilliant.Based on the images, pieces will include his classic plaid patterns, denim jeans and jackets, 3/4 quarter shorts, sweats, lined hoodies, beautifully designed coats, and of course his ever popular bomber jackets. So if you you're thinking about grabbing up some of Yeezy's new line and can stomach waiting a couple of days. You may be in for a real treat.
[stag_intro]We were introduced to the Nike Air Mag in 1989 with the release of Back To The Future. 27 years later Nike has made power-laced shoes a reality with the announcement of the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-Lacing Sneaker ($TBA).[/stag_intro]The lacing system is comprised of a series of pulleys powered by a rechargeable battery. Just step into the shoes and sensors register your weight and foot position, and then adjust the laces accordingly. You can adjust the tightness of the laces by pushing a plus or minus button the side of the shoe.Because the shoes operate on battery power, they do require charging a couple of times a month which may be an issue for potential buyers. In the future Nike is suggesting the shoe will be able to make these micro adjustments on its own as well as gathering biometric data that feed the companies line of wearables.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7Cyv3cvIxY
