Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery.

Yesterday, Dominic Chambrone aka The Shoe Surgeon took to Instagram to tease a beautiful one-of-one pair of Air Jordan 12s he made for Drake using repurposed Stone Island pieces.

The sneaker features Stone Island denim and material from the Italian brand’s iconic jackets, a ribbed ankle collar, and a midsole made out of Japanese plonge leather.

The signature Stone Island patch on the heel is the metaphorical icing on the cake as the Shoe Surgeon flexes his customizing muscles once again.

This Stoney-themed custom pair comes after Drake had Ben Baller make a massive $100,000 gold and diamond “Stone Island” chain, which you can check out here.

Karlie Kloss Shows off Her Basketball Skills in ‘LOVE’ Advent Day 31

The last LOVE advent calendar video of 2017 is here and it features a hoopin’ and swoopin’ Karlie Kloss. Don’t worry, though, the videos run into early 2018, so it’s not the last one this holiday season, just of the year.

The supermodel wears adidas shorts, a crop top, and long socks as she channels her inner baller à la Michael Jordan while dribbling and shooting the basketball.

Of the shoot, Kloss says: ”Whether it’s mental or physical, being strong is sexy, which is at the heart of this campaign.”

Do you think you could take the supermodel in a game of one-on-one?

Watch Kloss in action above, then check out some of the other LOVE advent videos below.

Nike & CLOT Are Bringing Back 2009’s Air Force 1 “1World”

Brand: Nike x Clot

Model: Air Force 1 “1World”

Key Features: A cream white silk upper with embroidered trademark CLOT graphics inspired by thousand-year-old Chinese prints sits atop an opaque sole with an Air unit.

Release Date: Rumored to be February 1, 2018

Price: N/A

Buy: Nike

Editor’s Notes: It looks like CLOT and Nike are teaming up to release a remake of the duo’s 2009 hit, the Air Force 1 “1World”.

The 2009 release featured a silk upper that could be ripped off to reveal luxe leather with the same laser-etched design and the sneakers came in a special hexagonal collector’s box, though it remains to be seen whether CLOT will include these details on the 2018 release.

As always, stay tuned for more information as it comes in.

This Binge-Watch Calculator Will Optimize Your Streaming Marathons

Binge watching has become the preferred option any time a new TV show drops on your favorite streaming platform or you have a few days off and nothing to do.

AT&T knows this and has developed a binge-watch calculator that tells you exactly how many hours and days it will take to watch a show from start to finish.

The calculator comes preloaded with a ton of the most popular TV shows and lets you select which season (or all seasons, if you’ve really got nothing to do) you’re going to watch. Game of Thrones, for example, would take three full days (72 hours) if you were going to watch all seasons. And if you wanted to watch all 615 episodes of The Simpsons, you’d be sitting in front of a screen for 9.5 days straight.

Once a show has been selected and calculated, you’re shown how much data streaming the show would use up in SD, HD, and 4K quality, as well as how long it would take to stream the show at different speeds.

Check out the calculator here and optimize your next marathon.
