Jeremy Scott for adidas ObyO JS Logo Attitude High

March 10, 2010

Another flashy number from Jeremy Scott’s Spring/Summer ‘10 collection, the JS Logo Attitude High didn’t make an appearance last season, but now it is back in all its over-sized Trefoil tongue glory in this striking metallic silver and yellow colourway. This remix of adidas’ basketball classic high top features an embossed pattern on the silver, making it seem like the uppers are made from a woven material.

Bape Sta Mid ‘Dr. Martens-inspired’

March 10, 2010

These were available at Bape Singapore a few weeks back, but mysteriously disappeared due to “various” reasons. However, they’re back now so catch them whilst you can. Inspired by classic Dr. Martens boots, these Bape Sta Mids features similar colourways, laces and the signature Doc Mart heel tab. The leather is smooth with a light sheen but is not patent, whilst the soles are translucent.

(PRODUCT) RED x Nike Football “Lace Up. Save Lives” T90 Ascente

March 10, 2010

Nike Football continues on with its awareness partnership with (PRODUCT) RED with the creation of a special limited edition version of the T90 Ascente. The ball follow’s up closely on a similar (Nike)RED “Lace Up. Save Lives” campaign. The ball will be debuted over the weekend at games across Europe’s biggest leagues including the EPL, La Liga and Serie A. Sales from the ball will benefit The Global Fund to Fight AIDS. The ball is currently available for purchase through the Nike Store in Britain.

London, UK (March 9, 2010) Three leading European football leagues will turn
(RED)™ this weekend as Nike introduces a special edition(PRODUCT)RED™ ball in the leagues’ home fixtures to raise awareness of the (NIKE)RED ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ partnership.

In a unified show of support for the global initiative, England’s Barclays Premier League, Spain’s La Liga BBVA and Italy’s Serie A TIM will use a special (NIKE)RED ball at all home games over the weekend of March 13th and 14th.

The Nike and (RED) partnership invites people to ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ by purchasing a pair of (NIKE)RED laces. One hundred percent of the profits from (NIKE)RED laces is split equally between The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which funds AIDS programs that provide medicine, treatment and services for those living with HIV, and football-based community initiatives that deliver education and understanding around HIV/AIDS prevention.

The (NIKE)RED ball is a specially designed T90 Ascente – the same make of ball currently used by all three leagues and boasts all of the technological innovations that the players are accustomed to week in week out, but features the (RED) laces graphic on the exterior. These balls are available to buy now for £150 from http://www.nikestore.com.

Richard Scudamore, Chief Executive of the Premier League, said: “The Premier League has enormous global appeal and we are committed to using our reach to raise awareness of this partnership between, Nike, one of our longest serving commercial partners, and (RED). A red ball and red laces are simple ideas, but sometimes those are the best – the hope is that the profile given through this and the money raised through ‘Lace Up, Save Lives’ will provide significant impetus and funding to the Global Fund’s activities to aid the prevention of HIV/AIDS in Africa.”

Seb Bishop, International CEO (RED) says: “(RED) works with the most iconic companies in the world, Nike among them. We are incredibly thankful for their partnership and for the support of three of the world’s premier football leagues which will have a powerful impact on our efforts.”

“Nike has a history of elevating global causes through sport. Through the power and appeal of football, this campaign not only highlights the HIV/AIDS issue globally, it has also created a great way to raise much needed funds,” said Mark Parker, President & CEO of NIKE, Inc.

On November 30th, 2009, the eve of World AIDS Day, Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Andrey Arshavin (Arsenal), Denilson (Arsenal), Marco Materazzi (Inter Milan), Lucas Neill (Galatasaray), Clint Dempsey (Fulham) and Seol Ki-Hyeon (Fulham) joined U2 front man Bono and Mark Parker at Niketown London to announce the partnership.

The (NIKE)RED Limited Edition Ascente Ball will be available for £150 and 2010
(NIKE)RED Limited Edition Brasil N98 Track Jackets will also be £150 and both will be sold globally from March 3rd. (NIKE)RED products are also now being sold at retail. (NIKE)RED laces are available now at Nike Store locations, key retailers and http://www.nikefootball.com/RED or at http://www.nikestore.com. The jackets are numbered. A second round of balls will be available again starting in May.

Outside of the three leagues, a series of (RED)-themed games will be played highlighting awareness of the initiative:

13 March: Hertha BSC vs. FC Nurnberg (Germany)
24 March: FC Basel vs. FC Zurich (Switzerland)
20 March: FK Austria Wien vs FC Salzburg (Austria)
20 March: PSV vs. FC Twente (Netherlands)
20 March: Trabzonspor vs. Galatasaray (Turkey)
1 April: Corinthians vs. Cerro Porteno (Brazil)
