This week, Jordan Brand is giving its sponsored football athletes a pair of custom, football-inspired Air Jordan 12s that come in a locker-themed box with Jordan Brand and football-specific stickers and magnets.
The custom sneakers feature an upper material that takes inspiration from a football, with turf-like elements incorporated in the outsole. Michael Jordan’s signature features on the the tongue, similar to how the commissioner’s signature is featured on an official football. The orange sock liner is a nod to the pylons in the endzone.
This special gifting pack follows the Jordan Brand PEs that were worn on opening day of the NLF last weekend. Check it out above, because that’s likely the closest look you’re going to get at it, unless you’re a Jordan Brand athlete, of course.
The short animated campaign for the strike on 20 September was a collaboration with students and animators in the UK and Australia, which sees a female protagonist fighting a monster made of oil and coal.

While we wait for big corporations and governmental change, we can all do a little better For many of us, waiting for big corporations and government sectors to take responsibility for the damage being done to our planet isn’t quite enough. We can all make small but significant changes through our routines—even if it’s just taking the time to read a label to see if …
Key Features: The adidas Blackburn SPZL is the newest addition to the brand’s iconic City Series line of footwear. Its green and red colorway is inspired by the red rose of Lancashire and named after the town where Gary Aspden, creator of the adidas Spezial range, grew up. A ‘Nightsafe’ edition, which is limited to just 200 pairs, features a Nightsafe logo on its footbed in honor of the local charity that provides support to homeless youth in Blackburn.
Release Date: FW19
Buy: The Nightsafe edition will be available exclusively at the adidas SPEZIAL exhibition at the British Textile Biennial.
Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals today announced the lead release from its Spezial FW19 range, the all-new Blackburn SPZL. Designed by Gary Aspden and named after the town he grew up in, the Blackburn SPZL will be available in two versions, a regular retail version and a special ‘Nightsafe’ version. The latter will be available at a special Spezial exhibition at the British Textile Biennial from October 4 to October 20 and is limited to just 200 pairs. All proceeds will benefit Nightsafe, a local charity that supports homeless and vulnerably housed young people in the Blackburn with Darwen area.
Archivist and adidas collaborator Gary Aspden once again looks to substance and storytelling over hype for this latest adidas Blackburn makeup. Establishing himself as a juxtaposition to other adidas collaborators like Pharrell Williams or Kanye West, Aspden’s design narratives often revolve around UK culture.
Check out the Blackburn SPZL above, as well as a preview of the Spezial exhibition below, where over 1000 pairs of Spezial footwear will be on show.
Rap collective BROCKHAMPTON go undercover in a new episode of GQ’s series “Actually Me.” The clip sees the group creating new user accounts on sites such as Twitter, Reddit, and YouTube, and diving into the depths of comment sections to answer real questions. Watch above.
Throughout the ten-minute long clip Kevin Abstract crowd sources answers from the rest of the group. Some of the question highlights include, “i love brockhampton! how does he do all those different voices??? really dope!!,” “how many one direction references does brockhampton make?” and “Paul Rudd in BROCKHAMPTON?”
In response to the Rudd question, it turns out Abstract has a pretty cute anecdote about the actor — apparently Rudd took the rapper aside to congratulate him on one of his solo albums. It also looks like Meryln needs to brush up on his Marvel knowledge as he said, “Paul Rudd said he said he wants us to join the Justice League,” before being corrected by Romil Hemnani. “Avengers, bro!”
The newly appointed curators in African, Middle Eastern and South Asian art will help the gallery to rethink the history of modern and contemporary art from an alternative, more inclusive vantage point.
Directed by Chris Villa and shot in the French Rivera, the scenic-video is as luxe as the rapper’s lyrics. “Ooh, this shit bliss, I’m so rich / Mille on my wrist / Versace boxers on my dick / Bud Light runnin’ through my piss / On a yacht, 50 meters it’s a fish / 50 carats on my fist,” he raps while wearing a custom Louis Vuitton utility vest. At one point he’s shown standing before a fleet of sports cars — which may or may not be parked outside of his home in Utah.
Malone’s third studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding dropped last week and is stacked with great tracks including “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug and “Sunflower” with Swae Lee, which appeared on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. Revisit the album here.
