If we were asked to think of the last shoe we would wear on a hot summer day, it would probably be these wild boots from Margiela. After these, however, the Lanvin Curb sneakers would top the charts. The huge padded sneakers would surely smother and isolate all at once. But wait, Lanvin just cut their backs? The Curb Lanvin mule exists.

That’s right. Lanvin has cut backs from the iconic Curb trainers, but that’s not the only thing that aligns the shoe with our summer wardrobes. Now featuring cutouts on each side, the Lanvin Curb mule has built-in ventilation.

Retaining the chunky laces and bulky overall shape of the OG Curb, the mule is still playing in the 2000s revival arena in which the Curb thrived. In fact, when the Lanvin Curb Mule is on foot, it’s almost imperceptibly different from the original sneaker. It’s apart from the wearer, who can definitely tell the difference as their feet no longer die of thirst in a pool of their own sweat.

The Lanvin Curb Mule is another warning to all of us that summer is, once again, going to be dominated by mules. Whether it’s a classic Boston Birkenstock or something more daring like this, it’s been on the back burner all season, so get a pair in the rotation.

Shop the Lanvin Curb mule below.

Clean For A Cause founder says deep-cleaned trainers will be the first ‘new’ pair some kids have ever received https://yeezys.org/clean-for-a-cause-founder-says-deep-cleaned-trainers-will-be-the-first-new-pair-some-kids-have-ever-received/ Mon, 16 May 2022 06:17:00 +0000 https://yeezys.org/clean-for-a-cause-founder-says-deep-cleaned-trainers-will-be-the-first-new-pair-some-kids-have-ever-received/ A shoe cleaning company for high-end sneakers might say that the people who benefit most from their services are those for whom a brand new pair of sneakers is out of reach.

A shoe cleaning company for high-end sneakers might say that the people who benefit most from their services are those for whom a brand new pair of sneakers is out of reach.

Christian Prescott, a man from South Auckland, was an apprentice plumber with an entrepreneurial spirit when he set up his first business, Sneaker Clean NZ, aged 19.

From this venture emerged Clean For A Cause, a charity that collects and donates pre-loved shoes to children in need.

Right now, the team at its Māngere warehouse is gearing up for a big giveaway event, which will result in hundreds of luxury branded sneakers being donated to Auckland’s tamariki.

* Reebok’s next sneaker will be made from corn

The plumber’s apprentice also worked part-time at a Timberland store, where Prescott recognized a gap in the market for a shoe cleaning service. He was quick to take care of the “investment shoes” of a clientele worth thousands of dollars.

However, when Covid hit the South Auckland community of Prescott, he knew he had to step up and the Clean For A Cause initiative was born.

Christian Prescott of Clean For A Cause, who accepts donated good quality shoes, cleans them thoroughly, packs them and then donates them to children in need.

Wanting to use his skills to help his community, Prescott knew there were kids going to school without shoes and realized he could make a difference through his business. He thinks Clean For A Cause not only helps children, but also relieves their parents.

By giving donated shoes a top-notch cleaning and repackaging them in custom-made shoeboxes, the organization also gives children confidence, Prescott says.

“We all love the feeling of opening a new box of shoes. But for some kids, our boxes will be the very first ‘new’ pair they’ve ever received.”

However, not all donated pairs go home with children. Shoes are categorized into four “levels”, with only level one quality shoes being passed on to children. Shoes at this level often start at $200.

“We provide good quality shoes, so kids feel valued,” says Prescott.

Clean For A Cause is gearing up to donate over 500 pairs of shoes on June 11.

Clean For A Cause is gearing up to donate over 500 pairs of shoes on June 11.

However, all donated shoes find a home, with lower-tier shoes going to sports teams and other small initiatives, Prescott says.

As well as helping those in need, Prescott says Clean For A Cause was a response to the climate crisis, with the crew saving shoes from landfills to give them a second life.

A child of the Māngere community and a proud Tongan, Prescott says his upbringing explains his spirit of service and he encourages those who can to participate in their own communities.

“Compassion and unity are at the forefront of this campaign. By bringing together our skills and the good grace of the community, we put shoes on the feet of those who need them.

Christian Prescott insists on the need for community involvement to help “our children who need it most”.

Christian Prescott insists on the need for community involvement to help “our children who need it most”.

Prescott clearly remembers his mother telling him, “If you want something, then you have to work hard to get it.” His ultimate goal is to work full-time for the charity, he says.

While government assistance wouldn’t be wasted, Prescott emphasizes that it’s community involvement that he advocates, inviting those who can afford to contribute to the sneaker donation event.

The team accepts all shoes in wearable condition, regardless of size. If you are unsure of a shoe, contact Clean For A Cause to clarify.

To acquire the shoes donated by the community and the list of children in need, Clean For A Cause organizes great charity events four times a year.

The next Outsole sneaker donation event will take place at the Vodafone Events Center in Manukau on June 11. The festival will feature giveaways, food stalls, music and other events, as well as the ability to buy, sell and trade sneakers.

There are certain things that come to mind when you think of the Royal Family of England. There are historical events. There is drama and scandal. Then there are relationships and family feuds. And, of course, there is fashion.

Like his late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, Kate Middleton has become an international style icon. While her chic wardrobe generally follows royal protocol closely, Middleton isn’t afraid to keep it more casual.

From lightweight sandals to versatile blazers, part of what’s so appealing about Middleton’s style is its accessibility. Despite Her Royal Status, She Wears Things We Could Imagine ourselves to carry. (And in real life too, not in our must-have princess fantasy.)

The trendy and super versatile Superga sneakers are one of those style staples that Middleton has been rocking lately. This sporty and stylish shoe is definitely reminiscent of Princess Diana’s sweatshirt, bike shorts and sneaker look.

This is where you can grab a pair of these sweet sneakers and look as good as a royal.

Superga Women’s 2750 Cotu Classic Trainers

Middleton has several pairs of these 100% cotton sneakers. These comfy (as the Brits would say) “sneakers” come in a variety of colors and sizes, from sunny pastels to chic neutrals.

These durable shoes are made from breathable cotton, keeping your feet cool and comfortable all day long. They feature a rubber sole for extra grip and a low ankle for flexibility and ease of movement. Plus, they’re machine washable!

The classic Superga 2750 silhouette makes these shoes incredibly versatile. Wear them with culottes, high-waisted cargo pants or summer dresses. Or keep them ultra-casual with leggings or jeans. They will look perfect no matter how you style them.

Superga also offers similar comfort in various silhouettes, including high tops, platforms, slip-ons, and more.

It’s easy to see why the Duchess wears these sneakers on repeat. With so many style options, like this olive green pair with beige soles, the Superga sneaker can be teamed with almost any look.

However, they sell out quickly. Depending on the retailer you choose, some colors may not be available. White seems to be Middleton’s favorite color choice, so be sure to grab a pair before they’re gone as well.

If there’s one person we never tire of looking to for inspiration, it’s Kate Middleton. Whether we’re looking for guest dresses for a summer wedding (check out Kate’s best wedding looks here) or trying on her favorite jeans, the Duchess of Cambridge is always an outfit inspiration.

That sentiment, of course, extends to her shoe collection, which the mother of three is known for surprisingly affordable styles. In fact, one of Kate Middleton’s favorite pairs of shoes, the Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Sneakers, is only $65 USD/$75 CA (store here in Canada, here in the USA).

Fans of the well-dressed royal first spotted the white Supergas in 2016 when the Duchess of Cambridge wore them in Victoria, British Columbia. Since their Canadian debut, Kate has been pictured in the $75 sneakers on several occasions, most recently during her Royal Caribbean tour in March 2022.

The casual canvas shoes have a rubber sole and a low profile. They are available in sizes 6-10 (including half sizes) at DSW and sizes 5-8 at Nordstrom for US buyers. Not your size? Shoppers can also pre-order the popular shoes directly from Superga.

The Duchess isn’t the only fan of these stylish and comfortable shoes. Superga Cotu sneakers have over 1,100 ratings on Nordstrom and an average rating of 4.3 stars.

“Finally I found my perfect sneaker,” writes a Nordstrom buyer. “I wear them with shorts, yoga pants, jeans and skirts. Buy some now!”

“These shoes are a classic,” said another. They are “perfect for all seasons of the year as they go with any outfit. A staple item for any girl’s wardrobe.”

“What’s not to like?” asks a third Nordstrom buyer. They are “pretty, comfortable [and] great with jeans.”

Sneakerheads could do anything to get the best pairs in town. However, Balenciaga is taking sneaker fever a bit too far. The brand recently listed an over-the-top version of the distressed shoe for a ridiculous price of $1850. Yes, it’s true!


Sold as part of the brand’s new campaign, the shoes are simply meant to suggest that the new Paris sneakers “are meant to be worn for a lifetime”. However, why they are on actual sale is still unknown.


There are nearly 100 “dirty and destroyed” pairs up for grabs in black and white hues. And while they’re not so tattered that they can’t be worn, we’d be surprised to see anyone pay the asking price.

Appalled by the sneakers, GQ France editor Pam Boy said: “The message is clear: buy and keep forever. “Demna will get people who can afford luxury items to buy ‘pre-worn’ looking trainers for €1,450. It completely upsets the essence of luxury.

He added: “It’s the opposite of a sybaritic mindset, and again it mocks people who will indeed spend minimum wage on items they might deem disposable and 2. that seem without value. Is a luxury house the right medium for this message? I do not know. But I hate loving him.

Would you spend $1850 on these worn-out Balenciaga wonders?

Asian American basketball photographer Koolmac has finally fulfilled his dream of designing his own Jordan sneakers.

Cameron Look, who goes by the name “Koolmac” on Instagram, posted photos Monday to showcase the boba tea-inspired Air Jordan 36 Low sneakers he designed in collaboration with the Jordan Brand.

Speaking to NextShark, Koolmac said discussions on the project began in late 2021: “It certainly took time, but it was worth the wait. The creative process is always fun.

“I worked in Nike retail for three years and dreamed of a day like this,” Koolmac wrote in a post. Instagram post start the shoes.

The new shoes feature a matcha color scheme and tapioca ball circles on the insoles and mudguards. The sneakers also have “Matcha Matcha Man” text on their volt strips.

For the finishing touch, the kicks feature the iconic Jumpman logo on the left shoe tongue and a boba tea cartoon character on the right.

“Through experiences and relationships, I learn to bring my ideas to life. My loved ones know the hours I spend, the miles I travel and the time I sacrifice away from my loved ones,” the photographer continued in his post.

“Sometimes I feel guilty and conflicted, but I believe we are changing the world. To everyone who supports me, my photography, my products and my story, this is for you. Yes, we have, but there is still a lot to do.

On Sunday, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum was spotted shaking the Footwear designed by Koolmac during his team’s Game 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Semifinals.

“I’ve built a strong relationship with Jayson over the past four years when he’s been training in Los Angeles in the offseason with Drew Hanlen. It’s been great to see the trajectories of our careers since we met in 2018. We both respect each other as masters of our crafts,” Koolmac told NextShark.

“Given that background, Jayson was of course the perfect person to launch the shoe. The colorway was perfect as he plays for the Boston Celtics and the timing couldn’t have been better considering these are both the NBA playoffs and AAPI Heritage Month.

Koolmac also shared that he was on a mission to break stereotypes about “what it means to be a photographer.”

“Four years ago the market for creative sports photography didn’t even exist,” he told NextShark. “I’ve been blessed to inspire other creatives and Asian Americans around the world through my craft. I may have a camera with me, but I’m also an artist, a designer , a storyteller and much more.I never wanted to be anyone’s “photographer”, I always wanted to be part of the family.

When Teigen rocks an alluring cutout dress or supple suede boots, we’re instantly intrigued by the trends. And when Oprah publicly declares her love for a brand, our ears immediately perk up. So when both women give something their stamp of approval, you might as well plug in our shipping address and credit card number without seeing them.

the Cravings cookbook author, 35, stepped out in the APL (Athletic Propulsion Labs) Techloom Bliss knit running shoe, which is one of the brand’s bestsellers – and the exact pair that made the cut of Oprah’s exclusive list. The sneakers are made with lightweight yet durable fabric and cushioned, supportive soles for all-day wear.

Buy it! APL Techloom Bliss Knit Running Shoe in Black/White, $220; nordstrom.com

Oprah called these kicks “casual enough for a workout but dressy enough for a post-squat lunch,” and we couldn’t have described them better ourselves. Teigen has trusted her comfy APL sneakers (she prefers the black and white pair) not only during workouts, but also for family time at Disneyland, taking a hit at carnival games and strolling around New York and Los Angeles.

APL not only offers high-end running shoes — all of which are vegan and come in dozens of colors, by the way — but also supportive slides, another brand specialty. The Satin Slide sandals, available in four pastel shades, feature a mesh footbed and plush midsole for maximum comfort in hot weather. It’s only a matter of time before Teigen is spotted in a pair of APL sandals like these.

Yesterday, May 1, Gigi Bryant would have been 16 years old. basketball player’s daughter Kobe Bryant died with him in a tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine people on the morning of January 26, 2020.

To commemorate the young woman, her mother, Vanessa Bryant and Nike launched sneakers called “Mambacita Sweet 16” . Through a post on her Instagram account, Vanessa explained: “This year is very special. Sweet 16 marks the passage to adulthood. Gigi has always been wiser than her age, spreading joy and kindness around her and proving that basketball was more than just a sport. It was friendship. It was family. The ‘Mambacita Sweet 16’ are inspired by his resilient spirit and the love he had, not just for the game, but for his family, friends and community.”

The sneakers have a design that simulates the skin of a black viper, the brand’s dove in white and the number 2 (the one she used) in gold. Additionally, Gigi’s name appears on one shoe and Kobe’s on the other; on the soles, the sneakers have the design of a number 2 with a halo and angel wings.

The “Mambacita Sweet 16” are the first shoes designed by Nike after the renewal of the contract between the brand and the family of the famous basketball player. A limited number of pairs have been released on $180 on May 1 and could only be purchased by SNKRS members of the application who have been selected as winners in a lucky draw. The shoes sold out in two minutes and like all merchandise bearing the Gigi Bryant name, proceeds will be used to support children and young athletes.

During yesterday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies, the player Jonathan Kuming wore tennis shoes.

Natalia Bryant was spotted in Venice, Calif., in a casual-chic look that she shared with her Instagram fans on Thursday.

The daughter of the late Kobe Bryant stood in front of an intersection on Venice Beach, overlooking traffic lights and scenic views at night. Posing for a series of photos, the star can be seen smiling at the camera.

Bryant donned a red sweater with an oversized fit and white details on the back. The crew neck was fire engine red and had long, almost puffy sleeves. The former basketball star’s daughter also wore a pair of blue jeans with a loose mom fit, as the silhouette became popular for its comfort and carefree appearance.

Over his shoulder, Bryant carries a beige Dior satchel with a “CD” monogram on the handle in gold hardware. The satchel has become a hot item among celebrities for its interesting shape and numerous colors and patterns. It seems beyond the bag, Bryant is keeping the accessories to a minimum, letting his outfit speak for itself.

The set is simple and comfortable, perfect for an evening exploring the Venice region.

On her feet, Bryant stepped into clean white sneakers with no platform. The shoes had a rounded toe and white laces. The clean white color with the blue jeans and red crew neck creates a simple yet pleasing color palette. The sneakers are almost blindingly white, contrasting with the deep blue of the pants. White sneakers like these are also a closet staple for their versatility.
