Totaling $1billion in construction costs, Barclays Center is finally open to the public! Kicking off the series of events to be held at the stadium is Brooklyn poster boy Jay-Z. Marking the return of major league sports to Brooklyn, the Nets stadium will be the first since the departure of the Dodgers to Los Angeles in 1957.

Allen Iverson’s signature Question shoe is getting re-released in white/blue this coming week. Having seen the white/red with the past drop, the mid-cut trainer features a full-grain leather upper, translucent outsole, honeycomb-shaped Hexalite cushioning system and pearlized blue toe. The Reebok Question Mid will be a one-time drop at Rime on Oct 5th.
Famed jewelry designer Melody Ehsani teamed up to create this very special trainer as a part of Reebok’s BETWIXT program. The concept of this shoe was inspired by the idea of Julie Walker’s quote “Love is the only nutrient in the world that can be expressed”.
The shoe features python printed leather. 4 lace color options (oatmeal, neon yellow, neon red and baby blue) “Love” embedded leather across toe. The inside of the shoe is lined in Melody’s handwriting expressing some of her favorite quotes.
Melody and Reebok teamed up to donate her entire personal design fee to a school for girls that helps fund their development and education.
The combination of snakeskin and studs makes for a showstopping stylish shoe.
Stussy Womens collaborated with the all female super team LoveMade for a limited edition collection entitled HeartBeat City. From designing to styling, consulting to marketing these women do it all and collectively promote new, fresh ideas paired with innovative designs.
The Heartbeat City tee cuts below the natural waist which is perfect for tucking it into your favorite pair of denim.
The cropped crewneck is cozy and features a black back panel which goes great for the Rime girl who already owns the black and white Modern Vice kicks.
The most interesting (and my favorite) is the cropped long sleeve shirt, along with the heart print it features elbow cutouts…the perfect day to night piece.
Each piece easily becomes a staple in your closet as we all prepare for the fall. Stop by to see the other pieces from the Stussy Womens collection and follow us on instagram @rimebklyn157!

Nike Sportswear for Fall/Winter 2012, the Beaverton camp is debuting a few new colorways of the Air Vortex. As the “vintage” moniker implies, the pairs are mocked up in slightly weathered upper constructions with distressed midsole detailing and off-colored laces and accents. Each colorway is built from a mixture of suede, mesh and nylon paneling with the majority of the aesthetic being characterized by a tonal palette that is rounded out with hits of contrasting colors.
The first hint of fall comes in this terrific BB51 Destroyer Jacket in a tonal black colorway, named after Bill Bowerman, the legendary University of Oregon track coach and Nike co-founder. (His football uniform number was 51 when he played for the Ducks.) The lightly insulated jacket has a premium leather and wool body, dressed with four flap pockets and zip front with snap storm flap. Nike embroidery on the left sleeve completes the look. The Nike BB51 Destroyer Jacket is in stock now at Rime.
