In the wide world of sneakers, you’d be hard-pressed to find a colorway that succeeds on style more than all-white and all-black. With a myriad of packs already on the market, Reebok’s all-new Pump Supreme silhouette has the aesthetic bases covered—from truly techy design details to military-inspired camo uppers. In its latest release, Reebok streamlines the Pump Supreme to its simplest colorways yet. Introducing the Pump Supreme “Black & White” pack.
As its tonal title suggests, this drop sees the Pump Supreme reworked into solid, simple colorways that should prove to be just as functional (and fashionable) as the Pump Supreme itself. From the Pump Technology activator to the outsole, each shoe in this pack is either wrapped up in white, or cloaked in all-black.
Pump Supreme signatures make a return as well—and it’s not just the style’s namesake Pump Technology air bladder. Engineered mesh zones for breathability and ventilation, a carbonated foam midsole, and a compression fit sleeve round out the Pump Supreme’s must-have features. Whether you’ve purchased from a previous Pump Supreme pack, or are starting your personal experiences with the silhouette, you can’t go wrong when a shoe this future-facing receives an aesthetic overhaul in something as versatile as all-white and all-black.
Simply put, this is where modern design meets the monochromatic. To secure a pair for yourself right before the swell of the summer months, stay alert: the “Black & White” pack hits Reebok retailers on May 4.
Facebook's video platform has grown like a weed, mainly thanks to auto-plays and a significant rise in accounts presenting other people's work as their own. In 2015, the company introduced a video matching system aimed at curbing the practice, and no…

Nintendo has announced that it will release the 2DS XL, an updated version of the 2DS portable gaming console, this summer.
Since the release of the Nintendo Switch, fans were worried the Japanese brand would disregard handheld devices in favor of its new portable console. News of the 2DS XL has shocked many, proving Nintendo is still willing to invest into the DS line.
With a C-stick, Amiibo-compatible NFC reader and extra processing power, the core of the 2DS XL is very similar to the 3DS XL — just without the 3D functionality. Importantly, the 2DS XL is compatible with all of the games exclusive to the new 3D XL.
For the exterior, the 2DS XL goes back to the original DS clamshell shape, thankfully disregarding the newer 2DS cheese-like wedge shape.
Despite having the same size screen as the 3DS XL, overall the 2DS XL will be smaller and sleeker, though Nintendo claims that the handheld console still “packs the same power” as the larger 3DS XL.
The 2DS XL will retail for $150 and will be available from July 28.

Editor’s Notes: First peeped last month, we can now take a closer look at this icy “Orbit Blue” iteration of arguably the world’s most in-demand sneaker. As ever, look for further release information as it emerges.
Pop stars are rarely subtle; the qualities of being loud, bold and dramatic are key ingredients in the recipe for chart success. Yet even in a career marked by a lack of subtlety, Katy Perry is remarkably transparent. This is, after all, a woman who wrote a song titled “Peacock” in which she sang the refrain “I wanna see your peacock, cock, cock” a total of eight times. Her latest single, “Bon Appétit” ft. Migos, skews heavily in her tradition of extremely candid earworms, but it may actually be her most absurd outing yet.
The frenetic, bouncy synthesizers are upon us as soon as we press play, and Migos have time to treat us to a syrupy roll call before we’re thrown headlong into the most bizarre food-sex joke in recent memory. “Got me spread like a buffet,” Perry chirps, before adding that she’s a “melt in your mouth kind of lovin’, bon appétit baby.” And that’s just in the chorus. The verses give way to Perry comparing her lovemaking to a Michelin five-star rated eatery, while Migos extol the virtues of her “sweet potato pie” and the subsequent suggestion to “make her do a donut while she ride.”
While this sort of poetic language is normally reserved for the scrawlings of a high school bathroom stall, the track’s musical qualities are both robust and insidious enough that we’re able to ingest the ridiculousness with relish. This is—literally—what million-dollar production sounds like. The sheen that sparkles off every individual second evokes both the dancefloor and the beach, the middle-point of which is exactly what Miss Katy ‘California Gurl’ Perry has been trying to create her entire career.
In short, buckle up and prepare to hear this song just about everywhere for the next six months. We would say it’s destined to be a guilty pleasure, but how could you listen to this and possibly feel anything like guilt? Well, unless its a sexually-anticlimactic, food-fetish related guilt.
