Hover Boards.

I wanted to do a piece on Hover Boards. For one, skateboarding is a huge passion of mine, and two, the concept is freaking sweet.

We have seen a lot of concepts come out and they all look really neat for what they are trying to bring to the table. Lexus came the closest but real world application just isn’t there. I want something I can cruise on. that I can take downtown and shred the pavement. So although cool, maybe we just aren’t there yet for practical use, until I stumbled across a company simply called HoverBoard.

Now we have all seen those drift boards. people gliding around but I’ve always wanted something more skateboardesque. Now the Hoverboard Technologies board doesn’t actually hover but is more like a drift skateboard with a singular wheel and the concept is not only interesting but it looks amazing as well. The specs on this board are pretty impressive:

Charge time: 16 Minutes

Charge Last: 12 Miles

Speed: 16MPH !!

Weight: 25lbs

The Hoverboard is an impressive piece of technology and comes with all the fixings. Included with  this are customized wheels and lights, speakers to create a gnarly sound track for your day, and eventually possible wheel changes (off road perhaps?!). Here is the video that the Hoverboard Technologies team produced for their Kickstarter campaign:

Now you aren’t going to be taking this board down halfpipes anytime soon, but cruising around town, absolutely! With all this amazing tech and design does come with a hefty price tag. The Kickstarter Campaign is now over but the pre-order price was $3,775. I’m thinking the consumer version will be around $4,000. Even so if you can take out a small loan and pay bit by bit, it may just be worth it. I look forward to seeing the demo days that these guys have in store.

(Although the campaign didn’t reach funding Hoverboard Technologies still has every intention on releasing this product in Summer 16)

    October 21, 2015 is a day that many people in the sneaker world and movie world have been waiting for, for 30 years. It is officially the day that Marty McFly goes to the future to intervene so that his son doesn’t go to Jail.

    Why is this so important you might ask? It’s important because it is the culmination of expectation for future (i.e. present) but after today it will be the first time in History that this movie takes place in the past. Whaaa, mind blown.

    Three futuristic inventions stick out to most people when they hear Back to the Future II; Hover Boards, Flying Cars, and Power Laces.

    I walked outside and looked in the sky, No flying Cars. I went in my house and took the wheels of my skateboard…. nothing happened but when I jumped on my computer at 4:00 PM EST something amazing happened; Michael J Fox unveiled a power lacing shoe

    Tinker and Michael J Fox

    This was a pinnacle moment for fans all over the world. But lets look deeper at a few things that Back to the Future did get right, because beyond the big three there were some things that were pretty spot on.

    Smart Herb Garden: In home Gardening

    Now are we sitting at our kitchen Table yelling “Fruit Please” as an indoor garden drops down from above, no. However Smart Herb Garden has done an amazing job at creating an indoor garden that can pretty much sustains itself in any home. Strawberries, tomatoes and other herbs can all be grown on any countertop.

    Ziosk: Waiter-less Restaurants:

    If only Ronald Reagan was taking orders at Chili’s that would be amazing, but that’s not happening. So for now we will settle for Ziosk: The Table Top Waiter. Ziosk allows you to put your order in, order refills, play games, and even pay. We are heading towards a non-waiter world, and of course it all started with the Café 80’s.

    Back to the Future will always be a cultural staple that showcased what some of the most creative minds could come up with for a fun positive future. 30 years ago the movie hit the big screen and I for one can’t wait to see what will come about in the next 30 years.

    So I’m late to the game I know this. However, I need to talk about a product that has revived not only my Lunarglides, but also my Jordan XI’s. Jason Markk is the a shoe cleaner that I can say without a doubt I would use on any shoe with no worry whatsoever. Below are my favorite Koston’s. Mid Red’s. I made the mistake of wearing them in Portland and stepped on some grass that was hiding a muddy pit. This happened months ago. Below is the before and after using the Markk! Beautiful!

    That’s all just had to let everyone know that if you aren’t sure what cleaner is real trust me this one is. Stop using shout wipes, stop wiping with a basic rag, and Markk it up. (lame I know but just pumped half my shoes look new again!)

    Sunglasses are one of those items that people spend way to much money on for no reason. Yes, I admit that I have fallen victim through out the years, Oakley, Spy, Tom Ford, and RayBan. I’ve had em all. And what for to just lose them at a pool party to call the next day pretending that the bartender is going to tell me that he has found them but in realty he tell’s me no one has turned them in as hes wearing them.

    But I digress. Heat Wave offers really dope affordable option with some sick designs. Designs that include straight clear to elephant print, Hello Jordan 3. I’m not saying that they are sporting a brand new style that you have never seen. But they offer a classic style that will look good at any pool party or beach. This is not a sponsored post, I’m just tired of losing my glasses and decided to look into some brands that offer affordable eye wear. Check out Heat Wave now and pick something up.

    Sometimes whats happening in the streets isn’t street wear, shoes, or music, it’s tech and video games. And today after many years Fall Out 4 has been announced. This is the culmination of 5 for a new Fallout and 7 years of an original title. Peep the trailer Below:

    This game looks beautiful. The trailer gives a feeling of past and present jumping. We get to see how the world was before the Waste Land, and that is exciting! We are going to get more info when E3 Comes around in about a week or so, and hopefully we will see some actually game play footage. More then but for now just put that trailer on repeat and enjoy!

    Ronnie Fieg Gel Saga are a summer staple. And this year is no different with the partnership with Kith x Diamond Supply Co.

    The shoe sports the Tiffany Blue that Diamond Supply Colabs are known for and hype-beast every where rejoice for another shoe that they will not obtain.

    But it all seriousness the shoe looks gorgeous and if like any of the other Fieg’s we know the quality will be out of this world. The only question you need to be asking your self is how long will you keep them on ice before you hit the street in them.

      The holidays are a special time of the year. They are special because footwear, footwear, and footwear! We anxiously away to launch of great things and today usually marks the pinnacle of that with a Jordan XI. The ‘Legend Blue’ Air Jordan Retro came out absolutely gorgeous! There is always a draw back to an all white shoe. Dirt, scuff etc. etc. But this is a shoe that is worth all of that.

      Now to add more beauty to the eye but an emptiness to the pocket Nike is also releasing a Holiday pack. The Beautiful Pantone XI, as well as a XX9. There has been a lot of chatter of a $500 pack being a little crazy but it is not going to stop people from picking it up! The photos of the final product looks great are posted down below.

      Being able to be in NY during the US Open is a privilege. For anyone who has not been able to witness tennis live is missing out on an amazing spectator sport. The speed and the athleticism is incredible.

      One such athlete who seems to be dominating the tennis world has partnered with a man who already dominated the basketball world. Those two men are Rodger Federer and Michael Jordan. According to Jordan with his first meeting with Federer Jordan says that one of Federer favorite shoe of the Jordan line was the III with that the collab began.

      Taking the Zoom Vapor 9, an amazing functional Tennis shoe (It is important that it is functional because it needs to be able to be played in), and some amazing design skills and the Zoom Vapor 9 (III White/Cement) was born.

      Currently the shoe is slated for a Aug 27th Launch but stay tuned to your local sneaker shops for more!
