Puma Avanti – The Puma King was a comfortable soccer boot that has been re-appropriated to become a best selling runner. Under the name the Puma Avanti, the shoes have won fans over with the fold-over tongue and the comfortable outsole. This latest edition has been dubbed the “24 Karat Gold” thanks to the fully gold metallic upper. It brings back memories of Michael Johnson hustling the track in his gold Nikes during the ’96 Olympic games. Thankfully, you don’t need to be super-human fast to grab these on August 8.

A Kind of Guise Fall/Winter 2014 – Take note, because this is how you execute a kick ass lookbook.

They took their heavyweight parkas, thick melton wool coats, and knitted cardigans to the streets of Istanbul to be modeled by the local merchants and peddlers. Every piece looked like it belonged, and that sort of thing can resonate with an audience.
