Nike has tapped J Balvin for a vibrant take on its Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. The result is a colorway that boasts gradients with unmissably bright hues that mirrors the artist’s personal style.

Courtesy of @REPGOD888, we now have an on-foot look at the boisterous collaboration. Much of the shoe has been treated with vivid canvas uppers, detailed with cut-outs and frayed edges that add a great deal of texture to the silhouette. J Balvin’s smiley face motif is placed at the top of the shoe, woven over a pastel pink tongue that comes with semi-exposed foam. Smooth black leather appears along the edge of the upper collars, complemented by intricate leather embellishments that frame the main Swoosh at the sidewalls. “Air Jordan” branding is stamped at the quarters, below which a Jumpman patch logo appears directly below. Other details like black laces, frayed panels along the toebox and a light pink midsole round off the shoe’s exuberant design.

A release date for the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG has yet to be confirmed.

Fear of God ESSENTIALS and Converse have teamed up again to revive the 110-year-old Skidgrip. As one of Converse’s most tenured silhouettes the Skidgrip has received many a reinvention over its century-plus lifespan, and this time around, Fear of God founder Jerry Lorenzo is reinterpreting it through the lens of his childhood in the late ’80s. 

 I like this sneaker for the days when I want to keep the look simple and let the sneakers run wild. I like this. I need this. 

 The Fear of God ESSENTIALS x Converse Skidgrip will launch on the Converse webstore come August 27. The MSRP is set at $120 USD.

 I can't wait to see this movie. I know I will cry tho.

Chairman Fred Hampton was 21 years old when he was assassinated by the FBI, who coerced a petty criminal named William O’Neal to help them silence him and the Black Panther Party.  But they could not kill Fred Hampton’s legacy and, 50 years later, his words still echo…louder than ever.

I am a revolutionary!
In 1968, a young, charismatic activist named Fred Hampton became Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, who were fighting for freedom, the power to determine the destiny of the Black community, and an end to police brutality and the slaughter of Black people.

Chairman Fred was inspiring a generation to rise up and not back down to oppression, which put him directly in the line of fire of the government, the FBI and the Chicago Police.  But to destroy the revolution, they had to do it from both the outside…and the inside.  Facing prison, William O’Neal is offered a deal by the FBI: if he will infiltrate the Black Panthers and provide intel on Hampton, he will walk free.  O’Neal takes the deal.
Now a comrade in arms in the Black Panther Party, O’Neal lives in fear that his treachery will be discovered even as he rises in the ranks.  But as Hampton’s fiery message draws him in, O’Neal cannot escape the deadly trajectory of his ultimate betrayal.
Though his life was cut short, Fred Hampton’s impact has continued to reverberate.  The government saw the Black Panthers as a militant threat to the status quo and sold that lie to a frightened public in a time of growing civil unrest.  But the perception of the Panthers was not reality.  In inner cities across America, they were providing free breakfasts for children, legal services, medical clinics and research into sickle cell anemia, and political education.  And it was Chairman Fred in Chicago, who, recognizing the power of multicultural unity for a common cause, created the Rainbow Coalition—joining forces with other oppressed peoples in the city to fight for equality and political empowerment.

“Judas and the Black Messiah” stars Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out,” “Widows,” “Black Panther”) as Fred Hampton and LaKeith Stanfield (“Atlanta,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”) as William O’Neal.  The film also stars Jesse Plemons (“Vice,” “Game Night,” “The Post”), Dominique Fishback (“The Hate U Give,” “The Deuce”), Ashton Sanders (“The Equalizer 2,” “Moonlight”) and Martin Sheen (“The Departed,” TV’s “The West Wing,” TV’s “Grace & Frankie”).

“Judas and the Black Messiah” is directed by Shaka King, marking his studio feature film directorial debut.  The project originated with King and his writing partner, Will Berson, who co-wrote the screenplay, and Kenny Lucas & Keith Lucas, who co-wrote the story with Berson & King.  King, who has a long relationship with filmmaker Ryan Coogler (“Black Panther,” “Creed,” “Fruitvale Station”), pitched the film to Coogler and Charles D. King (“Just Mercy,” “Fences”), who are producing the film.  The executive producers are Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, Ravi Mehta, Jeff Skoll, Anikah McLaren, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Ted Gidlow, and Niija Kuykendall.

The ensemble cast also includes Algee Smith (“The Hate U Give,” “Detroit”), Darrell Britt-Gibson (“Just Mercy,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Dominique Thorne (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Amari Cheatom (“Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” “Django Unchained”), Caleb Eberhardt (“The Post”), and Lil Rel Howery (“Get Out”).

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Sean Bobbitt (“12 Years a Slave,” “Widows”), production designer Sam Lisenco (“Shades of Blue”), editor Kristan Sprague (“Random Acts of Flyness”) and costume designer Charlese Antoinette Jones (“Raising Dion”).

The film is a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, in association with MACRO Films, Participant and BRON Creative, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Versace‘s Chain Reaction sneakers have been given a regal two-toned update that incorporates shiny gold accents. This iteration of the Salehe Bembury-designed silhouette follows a blue mesh and suede-tinged colorway from back in June.

The shoe is dominated by a bold color-blocked design, embodying clean white uppers and an all-gold midsole. A rubber “Chain Reaction” patch logo is placed at the top of the tongue, followed by striped rope laces that cover the forefoot. Smooth leather panels appear along the rear quarters and throatline, while semi-translucent overlays take up the toebox. Stretching from the lower heel to the sidewalls is a large rubber panel that doubles as the shoe’s eyelets. All of these details rest over a shiny gold midsole, finished off with Versace’s signature Greek key motifs and the silhouette’s Cuban-link-inspired outsole.

Versace’s two-toned Chain Reaction is currently available on 24S’ website for $1,195 USD
