Adidas Samba

June 8, 2018

 

“Some sneakers transcend time, place and style. Yes, there’s the Chuck Taylor, Jack Purcell, the Stan Smith and Air Jordan, but one shoe that demands respect is the Adidas Samba.

It was company founder Adi Dassler (“Adidas” is a mashup of his first and last names) who crafted the first Samba, a high-tech performance shoe when it debuted in 1950. Its soft leather upper afforded comfort, the trio of stripes added lateral support, and the high-traction gum rubber outsole let players kick around on icy turf without snapping their necks.

But it was the Samba’s inadvertent attribute of style that would grant it immortality. With its low profile and white-on-black contrast, the Samba was cool enough to wear off the pitch. At first, only footballers knew this, but it didn’t take long for everyone else to find out.

They haven’t forgotten, either. The Samba is the oldest Adidas shoe in continuous production, and, 68 years after its debut, it “still sells like mad.

Adidas has played riffs on the original over the years, introducing the Samba JP (with a tapered toe), the Samba 85 (in tan), and the Samba Super (with a longer tongue and toe cap.) But the company is too smart to take any variation too far, even to please the latest crop of stateside celebs spotted in their Sambas, including Rihanna, Kristen Stewart, and Justin Timberlake.

“Fads come and go, but some designs just don’t need to play those games,” is how Heard puts it. “Some people boast about old school while others just genuinely are. The shoe is like your favorite friendly old uncle, held in esteem and respect. It should be.”

TEVA EMBER MOC SLIPPER
Since the 1980’s the Teva brand name has been synonymous with comfort and adventure thanks to their line of sport-sandals. And the latest footwear to join the Teva family, the Ember Moc Slipper, is another win for fans of convenience. Equal parts sneaker and cushy slipper, they’re easy to slip on and off with the laidback collapsible heel and are a perfect choice for that long flight or a quick errand on a lazy weekend afternoon.

F A S H I O N : The Very Black Project

December 5, 2015

black
The Very Black Project isn’t merely a fashion brand, but a consciousness movement. Established in 2014 in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, TVBP it’s the brainchild of late night “Kitchen talks” reflecting the very contemporary and, at times, very wounding experiences of artist/cancer survivor André  D. Singleton  and  Art Director Justin Fulton, WHO both grew up very black and very gay in America. This project’s aim is to encourage relatable dialogue around the vast experiences of ALL people who have ever felt alienated due to race, sexuality, Gender, physical appearance or disability with a focus on blackness. They use the body as a vehicle for solidarity while asserting a very important social commentary. At its core they believe that to be #VERYBLACK is to be unapologetically proud of who you are in a world that furtively teaches us to hide from our stories and our importance.

November 22, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 16.49.11
Pulling inspiration from the Empire’s black-suited pilots, the Imperial Pilot collection features custom hour and minute hands inspired by the Imperial Pilot’s helmet ventilation system and subtly placed Imperial logos. It’s the intricacies that you may not notice at first glance, but can’t be ignored. The collection is inspiring as Nixon pay attention to details. It’s the design details on the bezel and pushers, dials and bands, the color applications and storytelling references that bring to life the unique characteristics only found in the STAR WARS | Nixon Collection.
