This Is The End is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (who wrote Superbad together) and follows Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel attending a party at James Franco’s house with a bunch of other celebrities when the end of the world begins out of nowhere. Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Rihanna, Emma Watson and many more all have cameos in the film which is just one of two apocalyptic comedies arriving next year (the other is Edgar Wright’s The World’s End with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost). Sony Pictures sends the film to theaters June 14th, 2013.
On the occasion of the Air Jordan XI Retro “Playoffs” drop (you got yours already, right?) we thought we’d whip up 10 alternate colorways of the Tinker Hatfield classic for Christmases future. Because it’s either keep coming back with the same four or five colorways every year, or try something new. Why not create some new classics? So check out 10 Air Jordan XI Colorways We Wish Would Release. (COMPLEX MAGAZINE)
1) Black/Neon Green
There’s definitely some Altitude XIII inspiration here, but the intent is to mix the old with the new. A whole set of black/green Air Jordan retros to accompany the new Air Jordan XX8 would be a great way to launch the newest flagship shoe.
From a colorway everyone hated to a colorway everyone anticipated. There’s no denying the flashy XI looks dope in a military drab. Stealth!
Ray Allen had them gold and green XIs that everyone was fiending for — flip the green to red, and they’re still, well, golden.
Jordan’s have been holding down the Hoyas for a minute now, either because of that gift Fred Brown pass in ’82, or AI representing in ’96. Whatever the case, the XI takes on the grey and blue lovely.
How these haven’t happened for Carmelo Anthony yet, we have no idea. Because if Jared Jeffries were still a Knick, HE’D have had them already.
The Olympic VIs are nice, Olympic XIs would be better. And no doubt Derek Jeter and C.C. Sabathia would be blessed with cleated versions, too. (You’re welcome.)
7) South Beach
We know. We know, we know, we know. But sometimes you just have to give the people what they want. Pink laces optional.
8) True Concords
The “Concords” have always seemed a misnomer, what with the shade only appearing on the outsole. Why not flip the “Columbias” with that grape tone? Word to Mike Bibby (and Mitch Richmond).
Why not outfit Tinker Hatfield’s most audacious Air Jordan design with Nike’s most audacious color? Don’t be scared by the thought of Volt patent leather. But definitely don’t try to match it with anything.
10 ) White/Royal
A nod to the “Nick Andersons” from ’95 or a makeup to honor Mike’s days with the Wizards? Maybe a bronze hit on the outsole answers that question. Actually, switch the Jumpman to orange, and that’s Melo’s home shoe. Versatile
Ronnie Fieg and Sebago are back, adding two special boots to their collaborative Fall / Winter 2012 Collection – the Bergen and the King’s Point. Compared to previous releases, these new silhouettes seem to be much less boat shoe inspired or related. Two proper boots, they do not only convince with premium leathers, but the added Vibram outer sole further adds to the appeal.
“The Bergen boot, now in brown or burgundy, comes specially designed with premium Horween leathers for a slick city look and all-terrain feel. Extra details include corrosive-resistant Sebago eyelets to uphold against harsh elements and a Vibram lug soles for practicality. The King’s Point boot features a full black Horween leather upper that sits on top of a contrasted goodyear welted Vibram outsole. Tied together with leather laces, other key additions include the double padded leather collar and removeable kiltie.”
The Bergen comes in two colorways and will retail for 190 USD, the King’s Point goes for 220 USD. Both will release on RonnieFieg.com, with the Bergen also coming to KITH NYC. (CLICK HERE FOR LINK)
Pain & Gain is directed by the one-and-only Michael Bay (Bad Boys I & II, The Rock, Armageddon, The Island, Transformers) from a script co-written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Chronicles of Narnia, Captain America) and Scott Rosenberg (Con Air, High Fidelity, “Life on Mars”). The original idea was based on an Miami New Times article by Pete Collins. Bay filmed Pain & Gain down in Miami, Florida earlier this year. The cast also includes Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Tony Shalhoub and Kurt Angle. Paramount will be releasing Pain & Gain starting April 26th next spring.
You’ve heard about them, you’ve read about them, and on Friday you’ll have a chance to buy them. The Air Jordan 11 “Playoffs” are seen in official images from Jordan Brand. Made famous by Michael Jordan on the road to his fourth NBA title, these release on December 21st at select Jordan Brand accounts. These are already in my collection! #WIN
