Hot off the grill: Air Jordan 5 Retro ‘Reflective Camo’

The colorway seems subtle until it is hit by light and reveals a flash of silver. Jordan 5 is famed for its reflective, flashy materials.

Sportswear goes to street: Adidas Tubular Defiant

The Defiant on the name of this adidas Originals speaks a lot. It is defiant because it is the first women’s line under the Tubular family (which was first released in the '90s). And because it defies design standards, it’s a sportswear that’s meant for the street.

To meet its modern purpose, adidas mixed a feminine aesthetic to the iconic Tubular silhouette. The result is a standout pair that combines mélange stretch upper with suede overlays. It also comes in a comfortable mid-cut bootee fit and features a speckled print on the signature Tubular outsole.

adidas has released new Tubular Definat lines, in leather and knit, because it has become a staple among sporty, chic girls.
