ARKK releases the Hypertrek FG BOA W13

As the final installment of ARKK’s revolutionary WAVE13 sneaker saga, the all-new HYPERTREX FG BOA W13 unites the essential strands of ARKK’s design DNA: a clean, minimalist silhouette, a custom-crafted sole unit, and a nod to futurism. In collaboration with the award-winning, and industry respected Boa®, ARKK Copenhagen revealed the HYPERTREX FG BOA W13 on Friday, September 28, 2018 10 AM CET / 4 AM EST.

Unquestionably ARKK’s most futuristic sneaker to date, the HYPERTREX combines contemporary design innovation, including a sleek sock-like FutureGrid upper and ARKK’s sculptural WAVE13 sole unit, with Boa’s adaptive click-to-tie lacing system. “Engineered to optimize fit and provide precision, adaptability, and control, “Boa’s technical genius combines with ARKK’s Scandinavian design language beautifully. A micro-adjustable dial with Quick-Release and durable soft nylon wires move along low friction lace guides along the lateral surfaces of the sneaker’s quarter panel. “It’s such a clean, functional design,” says ARKK Creative Director Kasper Høj Rasmussen, “you gotta love that beautiful clicking sound every time you lace up.”

“Since the beginning, [ARKK co-founder] Thomas and I always wanted to bring in more technology,” explained Kasper Høj Rasmussen, “but before we were ready to collaborate with bigger players in the world of footwear, we had to focus on learning the sneaker game and establishing our own identity and design DNA.” Now, three years later, “we have a lot more confidence and we know the kinds of partners we want to team up with. “With the incorporation of Boa, “we were able to give the HYPERTREX not only an element of practical, high-quality tech , but also add an aesthetic dimension that fits perfectly in line with the ARKK DNA.” When asked whether or not this new ARKK + Boa collaboration signals more sneaker tech collabs in ARKK’s future, Rasmussen says, “yeah definitely, this is just the beginning.”

In many ways, the daring new HYPERTREX FG BOA W13, the final installment of ARKK’s FW18 WAVE13 lineup of sneakers, signifies the next-level evolution of ARKK Copenhagen from industry-disrupting start-up to trend-setting global brand.

Former Detroit Lions Linebacker, DeAndre Levy, Partners With Detroit Hustles Harder To Stand Up For Sexual Assault Victims

Former Detroit Lions Linebacker, DeAndre Levy, his wife, Desire Vincent Levy, and popular Detroit-based apparel brand, Detroit Hustles Harder, are proud to announce their partnership for the third edition of the cause-related t-shirt line, Our Issue.

Our Issue is an apparel line that pairs activism and accountability for catalytic change. Created in 2016, the Our Issue initiative was designed out of the idea that a society free of sexual assault and domestic violence is not just a women’s issue, it is our collective issue.

Running September 14th – 22nd in Detroit, this year’s Murals in the Market Festival — named by Smithsonian as one of the top mural festivals in the world — will feature a special edition artist t-shirt of the 2017 Our Issue Mural by Sydney G. James and AskewOne. All proceeds from shirts will benefit Enough SAID, Wayne County SAFE, and the SASHA Center to support the ongoing effort of investigating the backlog of rape kits in Detroit and providing direct services and care to survivors. All proceeds will be matched up to $25,000.

“OUR ISSUE is dedicated to the multitude of women I know and love, and the ones that I don’t know that have the unfortunate experience of sexual violence,” said DeAndre. “As men, and as a society, we owe them more and need to take ownership of the role we play in supporting the culture that makes excuses for rape, harassment, and all forms of violence against women and girls.”

“As a survivor myself, I am thankful to and for the brave Detroit leaders like the SASHA Center, Wayne County SAFE, and Enough SAID that commit their time, energy, and resources to providing services for victims, advocate for policy, and affirm the voices and experiences of survivors everyday,” said Desire. “They are heroes amongst us.”

NotKarltonBanks 25th Birthday Celebration Recap

Can we give you the rundown on TONIGHT???

OMG! Okay. We went tot the Birthday celebration for Instagram Sensation, @NotKarltonBanks. We were so excited to go as the line up was stellar and we love Karlton.

The doors opened at 6 pm for General Admission. The show started at 7 pm. We arrived at 6:05 pm. Had to wait outside in the Georgia heat until 6:50 pm. #Strike1

As we proceed! For the past month or so, the event was advertised as follows. Pay attention to the lineup.

However, upon arrival we were made aware that Vashawn Mitchell would not be in attendance. #Strike2

Don’t know exactly what happened, but one of Karlton’s team members make it clear that it was his fault and apologized. But by this time it was 7:15 and we was already in our seats.

As the night proceeded, Lexi and The Christi Show were AMAZING Host. They kept the crowd engaged and Lexi sanggggggg her new single entitled, “In The Room,” which we all purchased while on site because she slayeddddddddddd.

In exchange for Vashawn Mitchell, Byron Cage stopped by and tore the house up. Love us some Byron, but we still wanted Vashawn.

As we were ready for LeAndria Johnson to hit the stage, we get word that she had a family emergency out of town with her brother. #Strike3

We pray her brother is well, but we were ready for her to kick them shoes off and slay us in the spirit. In her place she sent Amber Bullock from Sundays Best. Amber sang her whole heart out for the Lord and we loved it. However, we still were ready for LeAndria.

Finally, John. P. Kee hits the stage and takes us back to the 90’s and brings us all the way up to 2018 with a sneak listen of his upcoming single. He was awesome and really showed out for Atlanta.

John P. Kee three SHADE All Night Long at a certain someone and it was much needed. John spoke the TRUTH the Whole TRUTH and Noting but the TRUTH. If anyone says otherwise, they are not of God. We won’t say who or what was said. But know that after John said what he said, Vashawn took that post down that he had up trying to Shade Karlton. #Cough

We’re sure footage will be floating around of the night soon. When you see it let’s us know what you think. If you went, let us know your take and what your favorite part was.

Again, Happy Birthday to @NotKarltonBanks. Thank you for spending it in Atlanta with us.

Are you a Made Woman or Made Girl

Another day and another Bytch tryna steal a dollar. In recent social media stir-fry, Xscape Singer LaTocha Scott announced her new “Made Girl” Collection will be dropping during this year’s Essence Festival! She’s a designer now? Oh, Ard!

This ruffled some fan feathers after last week Made Woman CEO and Wife of Original Hot Boy Turk, Emani da Made Woman dropped her “Made Woman” Collection in stores.

According to sources close to the Made Woman camp, Emani has had her Made Woman wear in existence since 2008. Furthermore, the brand has been being pushed heavily by herself, Turk, and some of her supporters this past year as she revamped the collection.

Asking around just to be sure! No one heard of a “Made Girl” until 3 weeks ago. Also, how can you be considered a “Made Girl” at 57? Doesn’t that make you a “Made Nana?” Or, is she just a #MadGirl.

Nonetheless, we leave it to you.

The G Status Atl Fashion Fail!

Let’s be clear! We only went to see what Charlie Xile looks like in person and he is FINEEEEEEEEE. He is Super Gay but he is Fine. LoL!

In other Tea Spills. The cast of G-Status ATL was booked at Anchor last night. Though they are a bunch of nobodies except for Charlie Xile, they got booked. Most likely they were booked thanks to KL Allen who serves as the Executive Producer of the show. He has all the plugs.

Nonetheless, some of the cast showed up and showed out. They were in celebrity mode and looked the part except for this one boy! Let us Pray! For the life of us, we can’t figure out why they let him come in the club with them in a pair of swooshies. Yes, swooshies. Straight out of a 1996 music video. Take a look!

We told you. He looked the fools. They weren’t joggers. They weren’t sweats. They were swooshies. The pants that sound like plastic grocery store bags when you walk.

This now makes the whole cast look late as they let him sit with them while he was looking lost in time.
