  • Rumor: The Nike FuelBand and Wearable Technology Division of Nike is Being Cut

    Saturday, Apr 19, 2014 1:59PM / Standard Entry

    In an age where wearable tech has reached a turning point, Nike appears to be taking a slightly different stance by pulling the plug on the hardware team of its Digital Sport division. According to sources at CNET, the sportswear giant recently relieved the majority of a 70-person hardware team of their duties. The team was involved with the Nike+ FuelBand, SportWatch GPS and other sport-specific peripheral devices. Many industry experts speculate that this bold move indicates that Nike intends to focus its future wearable efforts toward software. No official word from Nike as of yet, however in an effort to calm the situation the group has announced that it will continue to sell the second-generation FuelBand SE for the time being. Head over to CNET for the full report.

  • 3sixteen x Viberg "Carolina Stealth" Boot

    Saturday, Apr 19, 2014 1:25PM / Standard Entry

    New York-based clothing and accessories label 3sixteen has teamed up with Canadian bootmaker Viberg for a timely summer release. Dubbed "Carolina Stealth" as a nod to the Carolina Brown chromexcel leather sourced from Chicago's famed Horween tannery, the quality upper is guaranteed to age beautifully and darken over time. Similar to previous 3sixteen x Viberg releases (seen here), this iteration reimagines the classic 1950 service boot silhouette with subtle details like a contrasting tongue. The supple upper rests atop a firm and sturdy two-tone non-marking Dainite sole. You can pick up a pair of 3sixteen x Viberg "Carolina Stealth" Boots on April 21 at 12pm EST over at 3sixteen's website.

    Saturday, Apr 19, 2014 1:20PM / Standard Entry

    Last month, London-based crooner and producer James Blake took his BBC Radio 1 residency as a chance to unveil a track entitled "Bloke" by an unknown artist named "Simon Tallywhacker." Now confirmed and titled "Girl" and the so-called Tallywhacker is Jamie xx. "Girl" as previously announced, will be featured on Jamie's 12" single as a flip-side to "Sleep Sound." Continuing the producer's melodic use of percussions and hazy sample cues, "Girl" is another atmospheric effort toying with syncopated vocals and distant subs in its rendition. Listen to the cut here from James Blake's latest show and look out for Girl/Sleep Sound to drop May 5 via Young Turks.
