Debut of the Nike Weatherman Pack

Before checking your weather app this morning, run, don’t walk to either of our locations to pick up Nike’s Weatherman pack. The release consists of two legendary silhouettes; respectively, the Nike Air Force 1 and Air Foamposite One. Both have turned heads on the hardwood and the asphalt. The cutting-edge cushioning of the Air Force 1 shoe, and the revolutionary upper Air Foamposite One both took basketball by storm, forever changing the way basketball footwear is designed and experienced.

 

Nike’s description of the weather-themed kicks:

 

Graphic, Doppler-esque depictions of inclement weather patterns grace the uppers of each shoe. The blue colorway demonstrates a quick transformation from calm to intense, while the red represents the constant pounding of a soaking thunderstorm.

The Nike Weatherman pack will be available beginning Aug. 30 at both locations. But not even a storm will keep these from selling out so don’t sleep in.

 

Canada Goose: Sweat the details

The history to how the company came to be Canada Goose, Inc is a fascinating one. In the early 50′s the company was Metro Sports Ltd, later to be named Snow Goose, and ultimately Canada Goose. The Arctic Disk was created in the 90′s, but has since experienced changes and natural variations over the years of growth.

Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada over fifty years ago, Canada Goose was poised to be recognized internationally as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear. Dani Reiss, third generation owner and CEO, risked everything by re-branding his family’s OEM product making business into Canada Goose, and it paid off. Today, the company is an industry leader and strong example for the “made in Canada” movement — one that consumers continue to embrace on a global scale. Rime is honored to be carry some of the brands finest examples from C.G. this autumn and when the temperature drops you can count on seeing me in one. As they say birds of a feather flock together so if your interested in joining this elite club then stick close to this blog for further updates as to when product will be hitting the shop floor.

NBA HISTORY

Do you remember the year Allen Iverson was draft for NBA?. Of course you do. How can we forget the 6 foot shooting/point guard from Georgetown being a No.1 overall draft pick back in 96′, who showed amazing performance within his first year in the 76ers giving him Rookie of the year in 97′ and in horror to one of NBA greatest players of all time. Reebok releases to you the fans Reebok Question Mid titled “Number 1 Draft pick”. Surely a must grab for you Iverson Fans. Rime will be selling these in store only at both location for retail price $125. For inquiries be sure to call or email us.

Puma Women’s Rose Gold Pack

The Rose Gold Pack is definitely speaking to different ladies sort of the way some people like more peanut butter than jelly in their picnic lunch sandwich (me). If your style maybe described as low key and chill then you’re sure to go for the Suede Classic. If you LOVE animal print and more fun in your footwear the rosegold platform is definitely your style. Take your pick!

Limited: Adidas Mutombo

At the end of a summer packed with retro releases we find ourselves focused on Adidas latest (well kind old) gem, the Mutombo. The sneaker is branded with a unique hypnotizing black and white pattern that is met with accents of red and yellow.

Knowing it would probably be hard for your average sneakerhead to match with (Fighter Jet Foams *cough*), Adidas also made accessories for the sneaker including a matching hat, socks, and tank top. Light weight and true to size, the Mutombo is a must cop. So when your homies, and your homies, homies are rocking them don’t say we didn’t tell you so!

Big Sean – Control f. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica (prod. No I.D.)

So Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s ‘Control’ set the internet ablaze after Funkmaster Flex dropped it last night.

 

I’m usually homeboys with the same ni**as I’m rhymin’ with/ But this is hip-hop and them ni**as should know what time it is. And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all, but I’m tryna murder you ni**as/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you ni**as/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni**as.”

 

Critics say he’s coming at fellow rappers and single handedly proclaimed himself the King of the Rap Game. I disagree, Kendrick is simply keeping healthy competition alive within hip hop. After all the buddy-buddy happenings of recent weeks (Dame/Jay, Ma$e/Diddy) I think it was perfect to throw a little controversy back into the mix in a positive way. As far as this ‘changing the rap game’…I’d say it will just illicit responses from those mentioned and others who may perhaps feel threatened.

 

I’m a little shocked that Jay Electronica’s voice even being heard on a track didn’t blow peoples minds. Maybe I’m just a super fan?
