Nike Free Hybrid Boot

I wouldn’t call this a hybrid. I think a hybrid is more like an obvious sole of one sneaker while the top is all another sneaker. This here is more like a fusion of 2 styles.

Anyway, according to Hypebeast, these are built on the considered tenant of being  environmentally safe. The original source is Sneakernews… I didn’t see that there lol

No info one when it will come out.


Simple Womens Satire Sneaker is Environmentally Friendly

In the quest to be earth friendly, their seems to be allot of sneaker comapnies trying to push the limit with what they can do with a sneaker (or shoe). I never heard of the comapny called simple, but apparently it tries to keep things considered.

Here is a quote from Amazon.com (the site I found this one) about the company:

Simple is leading the footwear industry in our commitment to making 100% sustainable product. With all of the over-built, over hyped product out there it’s pretty hard to find sustainable shoes that you can live with. So we started Simple, your stereotypical, anti-stereotype brand offering good shoes and a big dose of reality. How we make our shoes is just as important as why we make them.

Interesting, isn’t it??? The sneaker is made of organic cotton upper and lining and the out sole used to be a car tire… see I told you, sneakers and cars just go together lol.

They also have all sorts of colors. I know this is for the ladies, but they look pretty gender nutral so guys feel free to buy a pair.

For more Simple stuff, check out Amazon.com. They got 3 pages worth.


How Do You Create A Nike Rejuven8?

How Do You Go From The Picture Above To the Picture Below

???

High Snobriety.com wrote an article about how Nike came about making this sneaker that just freakin looks like comfort (I’ll admit I never tried it on so I have no idea). I think the overall look is very cool and stylish. Its something i would walk around in at work to stay comfortable or maybe to just chill in when I am going somewhere just to relax.

I usually don’t like expensive slippers, but I can like those Mules (more…)
