Rihanna continues to dazzle the fashion set with her collaboration collections with PUMA. The latest drop is the FENTY Bow Sneaker and the Bow Slide. Influenced by the luxe Parisian days of Marie-Antoinette, the Bow Slide is the classic soccer slide elevated by the satin bow that adorns the slide strap and the satin foam backing for comfort. The Bow Sneaker is a statement piece of footwear for any occasion. The Bow Sneaker takes PUMA’s old school running silhouette, the Trinomial, and packs it with a stand out punch. The all over satin tonal sneaker features a delicate satin bow and the PUMA by Rihanna signature tongue patch. Both silhouettes are available at rime locations in pink and olive color-ways. You can also find them here at the online store.
The descendant of the LunarEpic Flynkit Low is here, with focal point still being its intricately knitted, weaved upper. A flexible, breathable Flyknit upper wraps the foot like a second skin, with targeted areas providing lightweight support where its needed most. It is detailed with matching flywire, branding Swooshes across the side panels and more branding on the tongue, rounding out the look of the sneaker is a white full length laser-spied Lunarlon sole unit, just like its predecessors. The soft, contoured Lunarlon midsole has precision-lasered that collapse during foot strike, that delivers a smooth transition from heel to toe. The pressure-mapped laser cut outsole amplifies the cushioning exactly where it’s needed, dispersing impact across the foot. These are currently available at rime locations.
Saturday women around the world, from Washington to Lisbon, marched in unity to voice their frustration. Joined by their peers, anyone with sense, they all marched to protest against the sexist and discriminatory tone of Trump’s election campaign. Not every feminist is white, middle class, cis-gendered and able-bodied. The marches were attended by men women, gay and straight, in all sizes and colors. In solidarity these women, people, humans marched on the first day of Trump’s presidency, united in their diversity. They came out in large numbers to resist what the new POTUS represents, the embarrassing facets of American culture, that it’s not okay to demean anyone that isn’t like you, and that that strongly included women. It was the largest inaugural protest in history, nearing around 3.3 million. Many irate at one of the most deplorable comments made by Trump about grabbing women, a comment that proved that Trump was a misogynist that takes what he wants. These women marched to overcome the tradition of silence, letting women and the next generation know that they have the right to speak up for themselves, to stand against inequality and hatred for minorities. It was a march about change, about changing the world and solidarity with those fighting for freedom everywhere, for those who believe in human rights. Unity was the message. Unified they were, unified to protect fundamental rights, unified to stand up for women, unified for equal opportunities. They were unified to show that the President of the USA was elected after bragging about sexually assaulting women, and they weren’t okay with that. They were showing the world that they weren’t going to keep quiet on women’s issues. There was power in the numbers. They were marching to fight for progress and a future of inclusion and love instead of hate and nostalgic conservatism. But for sure no one felt alone, instead there was an energy of hope, anger, power and excitement that so many felt the same. Lets hope that no one forgets the energy that these marchers projected, that they, we, can do something, that they weren’t alone. And The similarities in the handmade signs showed that.
One Nike’s basketball sneaker has reached iconic status since its debut. Named after the U.S President’s plane, the sneaker was a star on the court, then became a streetwear star that was and is at the core of hip-hop culture. The latest iteration, addition to the Air Force 1 family is the Ultra Force Mid. The sneaker features a Nike Ultra bootie, that allows you to put the shoe on and take it off easily, with help from the pull tabs on the heel and tongue. It also has a mesh overlay to keep feet cool. The midsole is cored out in key areas for lightweight, flexible feel, while the durable foam doubles as an outsole, reducing the shoe’s overall weight. The leather overlays adds durability and is a homage to the classic AF1 design lines. reflective details on the back enhance visibility in low light. The mid-cut collar adds a snug, supportive feel, as the rubber toe and heel pods round out the details for added traction and durability. The Ultra Force Mid is an innovative design, that is lightweight and versatile, seamlessly becoming a part of any outfit.
