In response to the petition for invalidation that ASICS filed early this year in a quest to stomp out Qiaodan Sports’ patent, the CNIPA determined in a decision dated July 7 that the Qiaodan Sports’ patent makes unauthorized use of a pattern that is notably similar to ASICS’ trademark, and thereby, runs afoul of Chinese Patent Law, which does not permit the issuing of patents that “conflict with the lawful rights acquired by others prior to the date of [patent] application.”Before quarantine, buying and subsequently putting on a really nice pair of shoes was the epitome of luxury, like booking a spa day after a long week at work or splurging on a delivery salad for lunch. Blame it on Carrie Bradshaw, but I always had the mentality that it was the right shoes that made an outfit, not a bag or a dress. You walk taller, straighter, and with more of a purpose when you have on a great pair of heels, even if they are just an inch or two tall. And while at five months into a pandemic, I’ve accepted that I won’t return to work, see a movie, or travel anywhere outside of the tri-state area until probably next year, one thing I’m not yet willing to let go of is my love of fancy shoes. August 10, 2020 – Converse’s first capsule collaboration with photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis is teeming with florals, inspired by a double-exposed image taken on a trip to Mexico that reminded the artist of her late father.
Jarvis, known for combining a modern fashion aesthetic with sensitive and emotional portraiture, uses the image to transform the Chuck Taylor All Star CX, as well as the sneaker’s secondary laces, dust bag, shoebox and an accompanying cotton jersey pullover hoodie, into a floral fantasy. The first-ever pair of Air Max sneakers released was the Air Max 1, and the shoe has been reimagined today as a slick golf shoe. As Nike puts it, the sneaker “transitions seamlessly from the course to the concrete,” and we couldn’t agree more – these aren’t your old man’s golf shoes.The practise located on Shirley High Street is one of many that are feeling the affects of Covid 19 and the inplication’s lockdown has had on High Streets around the country.Continuing the 50th-anniversary celebrations of the Superstar, adidas Originals has now given the icon and rework for the green.Since the ASICS Runners Face Cover is in pre-production, the mask didn’t come with any instructions how to clean it: nor were there any labels in the mask, neither did it come with a little instructional card like the UA SPORTSMASK. Presumably, much like the Under Armour mask, you will need to wash the ASICS Runners Face Cover under running tap water and avoid dry-cleaning and washing it in the washing machine.“But the thing was all the boots were near enough brand new because they’d got them for Christmas and then we had to stop in March.The team’s coach Richard Hunt explained how the idea came about after the team’s first training session following lockdown.Allowing for maximum exposure, a translucent foxing extends the floral print to the sole and exposes the shoe’s construction.

The FILA-UTR relationship comes at a peculiar time for tennis worldwide. The coronavirus pandemic has sidelined both the ATP Tour and WTA Tour since mid-March. Exhibition series ranging from the UTR Pro Match Series to the DraftKings All-American Team Cup have popped up across the globe, but without fans and lacking the deep fields with sanctioned-tour events.Hong Kong-based sneaker customizer 199X is finding a new use for the adidas Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 “Triple White” colorway. Dropping the standard colorization and paint jobs found on typical leather sneaker customs, 199X has used colored threads and a sewing needle to give the “Triple White” colorway a sukajan makeover.These oh-so-comfy memory foam sneakers have a faux suede upper and ultra-clean lines, not to mention the nice use of texture, that belies their under-$50 price point. You’ll wear them all day with that plush cushion, and the rubber sole is flexible and waterproof while an elastic gore ensures they’re easy to slip on or off. “They are so stinking adorable and they go with everything! Not to mention that they are extremely comfortable, like walking on pillows. I’m really considering ordering a back-up pair in case anything happens to them,” one shopper mused. Choose from eight colorways, all in a super-wearble neutral palette. They aren’t quite as padded at the heel as other picks on this list, due to the overall low-profile style, so sensitive skin might want to pick up a good low-profile sock, too.Though usually heavy handed with their releases, adidas Yeezy is now beginning to show a bit of restraint as their releases continue to slow further down in terms of cadence. August, just as the months before it, is only poised to launch two standouts, one a somewhat vibrant Yeezy Boost 350 v2 and the other a similarly toned Yeezy 700 v3. The former, which is set to arrive first though only by about a week, delivers the imprint’s flagship silhouette with what an arrangement dubbed “Israfil.”
Instead of relying on earth tones once again, the Primeknit upper is coated in a pale blue, one that complements the darker tint that dresses the midsole as well as the lining. Side stripes then brandish the profile in a saturated yellow, near mirroring the embedded piece found along the tread. Expect these to see a release on August 22nd at a price tag of $220 USD. Then, the Yeezy 700 v3 “Azareth” is prepared to expand the model’s small though noteworthy roster of colorways, delivering a lighter scheme that departs from the brand’s typical Autumnal approach. Saturated blues run replete throughout the upper’s dye, contrasting the colorless yet see-through molds all around as well as the true white oversized tooling below. Shaped threading then stands apart by way of their brighter hue, adding further dimension alongside the entirely blacked out lace unit. The “Azareth”“If Nike talks about a slice owing to the existing scenario, then it will be a circumstance of playing honest and allowing the ones who offer you the very best deal to have the rights to be the kit sponsors of the Indian cricket group. Any other arrangement will not be palatable primarily in the background of the worries of high quality that have emerged from time to time,” the resource experienced pointed.Though lesser celebrated, the Reebok Instapump Fury OG has stood tall in the background with its vast array of camo print colorways to achromatic gradients. Alongside some strong nods to the unfortunately postponed Tokyo Olympics, the silhouette has also dressed up in a college-inspired “Utility Green” make-up. Informed by retro aesthetics, the pair leads with a mix of alluringly vintage colors. The titular green shade plays support despite being the only bit of color, coating only parts of the tooling, the toe cap, and the smaller panels scattered across the base. Black pairs well just adjacent, weaving an open gauge mesh that outfits the tongue along with the heel counter. Elsewhere, a somewhat yellowed white covers the bladder in near entirety, stopping only at its pumps; midsole hits are treated to the same finish, blending well with the aforementioned as well as the full mesh toe box. Grab a detailed look at these right here, and as they’re available currently overseas, expect a stateside Reebok.com drop to arrive hopefully within the coming months.
