adidas today unveils a limited edition Crazy 8 basketball shoe inspired by the Brooklyn Nets and the city the team calls home.
Designed to pay homage to the Nets and Brooklyn, the black and white colorway features a map of the subway lines that surround Barclays Center on the sockliner and “Brooklyn” stitched into the ankle. Brooklyn Nets logos are displayed on the tongue and the heel while the herringbone pattern on the upper and laces replicates Barclays Center’s unique court pattern.
The shoe’s toe is done up in a patent leather and the upper features a premium suede for a bold off-court style while Pure Motion technology adds traction and stability in the foot for better feel during quick on-court moves.
Meet Humlan by Urbanears
Tuesday night we were fortunate enough to check out Urbanears’ launch of their new headphone line Humlan. Humlan is a brand new concept in headphones where the headband and ear cushions can be removed and thrown in with the wash, along with the rest of your wardrobe. Being that this is the first headphone ever to be created with washable parts, it’s only fitting that the launch party was held in a laundromat. Yes, you read that correctly… and it was awesome. The Eco Laundry Company served as the location, and Urbanears did a great job decking it out for the occasion. They had the standard DJ set up (Jasmine Solano killed it), beverages and bites… but the best part were the washers and dryers that were filled with beer and of course, the new Humlan headphones.
These headphones come in a variety of awesome colors and hold many of the great features you may be familiar with from Urbanears, such as microphone and remote and ZoundPlug so you can share your music with your friends, directly from your headphones. If you are looking for a simple, cool, killer pair of headphones, that you can use all day every day, look no further than Humlan. And if they get dirty, well… there’s laundry to be done. Doing laundry never sounded so good.
