OTH x adidas – The latest to join the exclusive adidas Consortium club is Canada’s OTH. The boutique teams up with the German sneaker giant to create a beautiful rendition of the Tubular Moc Runner. The runners are inspired by the Voyageurs — a band of bad ass French Canadian tradesmen of the 18th and early 19th centuries that earned the title by traveling throughout the various Native American communities and trading posts. Using a moccasin-like look the shoes pair premium black leather with woolen paneling, moc-toe stitching and a split tongue. The separation in textiles and colors also gives this sneaker a similarity to the Jordan 11s; definitely not a bad look. Look for this special OTH edition of the Tubular Moc Runner to drop Friday, April 17.

ONLY NY Spring/Summer Lookbook – I’ve been slowly waiting what ONLY NY has to offer for Spring and Summer 2015 and it was definitely worth the wait.

Using a blend of their rectangular logo and their script logo the collection also draws inspiration from the New York marathon, along with competitive cycling. The collection will arrive in stores, and online Wednesday, April 15.

LENOVO A1900 – Budget smartphones really don’t have a place in the US, but for those who constantly drop their devices and need a replacement this new A1900 is a damn good deal. At $60, the A1900 arrives with a powerful quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and an additional Mali-400 GPU. It can handle Android 4.4 fairly smoothly, and has a 4 inch IPS screen capable of HD resolution.
