Just in time for Paris Fashion Week, The Shoe Surgeon gets busy on one of his favorite silhouettes - the Nike Air Jordan 1 x fragment design. Launching exclusively at Parisian boutique Nous, during PFW, the custom “Glitter’ sneaker is set to be priced at €1500 EUR ($1685 USD) for June 22nd drop. It’s as exclusive as they come, as only 25 pairs were made.
Nous 49 Rue Cambon 75001 Paris
The sneaker is divided into white, black and blue segments - retaining the white midsole and blue outsole contrast. The white midsole and blue outsole are the only parts of the sneaker not covered in glitter - as well as the waxed black laces.
If you recall, a snippet of a Pusha T track titled “What Would Meek Do?” leaked last month - which contained lyrics that took aim at J. Cole: “You heard Cole on that song, he was tryna hate,” rapped Kanye.
And now, apparently, Kanye also had some things to say about Drake on the record. You can hear the extended version of the record after it surfaced earlier today. “I be thinking, what would Tupac do? You be thinking what New Kids On The Block do? Drizzy wearing Yeezys on the low though .Only repping Nike for the promo. The company growing faster than Flo-Jo. And we did with no logo,” raps Ye.
The jab stems from Drake’s lyrics on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” where he raps, “Checks over Stripes, that’s what we like.” Ye immediately put Drake and Travis on blast: “How you gone be on Trav’s song coming at me. Trav should have never allowed that.”
This wasn’t the first time Drake referenced Kanye’s association with Adidas, though. In September of 2019, Drake was also heard rapping, “Keeping it G, I told her don’t wear no 350s around me,” on his verse on French Montana’s “No Stylist.”
At Paris Fashion Week this past Spring, we got a sneak peak at the COMME des GARÇONS and Nike Shox TL collaboration. Over the weekend, a release date was finally confirmed! The classic Nike Shox silhouette is dressed in an all black upper with a distressed Swoosh logo and bold, gold accents found on the detachable chain & logo accessory. Pieced together like a necklace, the chain locks into the Shox TL’s sole unit.
The accessorized sneaker is dropping June 13th for $357 worldwide. If you’re in Japan, you can cop a pair at various CDG Aoyama stores now!
For the sneaker and jewelry enthusiast, this pairing is the perfect must-have release. Check out more images of the collab below!
While we should celebrate our women all year round, the month of March is solely dedicated to women’s history - which originated as early as 1987 when Congress proclaimed March 7th as “Women’s History Week.” What started out as seven days, has since become a month of honoring the impact women have had in our society.
And as you know, here at King Ice, we always make sure the ladies are covered as well.
With our newly released Champion series, it’s important to know that women have been just as dominant - not only in sports, but in entertainment, business, politics and more. So, to the sports champion, or the every day champion, ladies, this one is for you.
If we’re talking music - particularly Hip Hop - there’s no doubt that Cardi B has won a lot of us over. Her rise to stardom was no easy road, but she’s earned it every step of the way. Last year, her debut album, “Invasion of Privacy,” topped the US Billboard 200, went double platinum, and became the first female artist to have all tracks from an album certified gold, or higher. That same album also brought in her first Grammy Award during this year’s ceremony. Isn't it obvious why she's so desirable?
Michelle Obama. Her name alone is prolific. The former First Lady, had her portrait (painted by Amy Sherald) unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery. This was monumental for Amy, as well, because she became the first African-American artist to paint the Smithsonian's official presidential portraits.
Coachella has raised the bar. Last year, the popular music festival had its first Black woman headline - and her name is, Beyonce! Queen Bey bodied a 27-song set for over 100,000 festival goers. Her performance set, alone, became the most watched live-streamed performance, to date, raking in 41 MILLION viewers. There's no question who is the Head Bey In Charge!
If you thought topping four gold medal wins in 2016 was going to be difficult, well, you’re name isn’t Simone Biles. The soon-to-be 22 year old gymnast from Columbus, Ohio, became the first woman to win FIVE all-around titles at the US national championships last Summer. This just might solidify her for G.O.A.T status, as she’s still early in her career. For her championship performance, Biles wore teal - the designated color for sexual-abuse survivors - to signify she stands with the gymnasts who, like herself, were abused.
Naomi Osaka, the half-Japanese, half-Haitian rising star in tennis did something absolutely remarkable in the US Open finals last year - defeat Serena Williams! The tremendous victory earned Osaka the privilege of becoming the first athlete representing Japan to win a Grand Slam Final. For that, we honor her with the 14k White Gold Champion Heritage medallion.
To close this list out, one of the biggest brands in all of planet earth, NIKE, officially declared 2019 the “Year For Women!” For their new video campaign, “Dream Crazier,” Nike teamed up with Serena Williams as she narrated a video that highlighted women who dream big. The inspiring minute-and-a-half video advertisement highlights the accomplishment of women athletes, including Chloe Kim, Ibtihaj Muhammad, and of course, Serena Williams.
“A woman running a marathon was crazy. A woman boxing was crazy. A woman dunking? Crazy. Coaching an NBA team? Crazy. A woman competing in a hijab, changing her sport, landing a Frontside Double Cork 1080, or winning 23 Grand Slams, having a baby and coming back for more? Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. And Crazy.
So if they want to call you crazy? Fine. Show them what crazy can do.”
