Winners of the 2018 Underwater Photographer of the Year competition have just been announced. A panel of expert judges rummaged through 5,000 entries to crown the international victors spanning 11 photography categories. Taking home the grand prize is German photographer Tobias Friedrich for his remarkable “Cycle War,” portraying an underwater wreckage of World War II motorcycles, supply trucks, and armies of soldierfish swarming the entire frame of the photo.
Check it out in the Instagram photo, below.
“I had had this image in mind for a few years, but it is impossible to capture in one photo because there is no space inside the wreck to photograph this scene in a single frame,” Friedrich explained to UPY. “My solution was to take a series pictures and stitch them together as a panorama.”
adidas‘s 747 Warehouse St. event just added another All-Star to the lineup. A special Pharrell Williams x adidas BOOST You Wear model will join the already stacked roster of drops, boasting an upper dominated in bright yellow. Its heel tab and medial side paneling are treated in green while red stripes make their way from the toe box towards the midfoot in a wavy pattern. Large lettering returns in white, reading “AMBITION” going up towards the ankle entry, while its BOOST cushioning is also done in white.
Take a look at the imagery of the upcoming Pharrell Williams x adidas BOOST You Wear and let us know if you plan on copping this exclusive on All-Star Weekend.
U.K. retailer size?, over the last little while, has dropped a slew of exclusive sneaker silhouettes alongside some of the game’s hottest names, with yet another new model set to make its debut. Recently gracing our pages in a “Core Black/Sub Green” colorway, we now take a look at the adidas EQT Support Mid in this “OG Blue” motif.
The uppers feature a Primeknit weave construction with the main stripe design not only playing a stylistic role, but one of function — providing a secure lockdown fit. The signature blue hue makes its way onto the toe, vamp, mid-foot, and midsole, while hits of grey and white land on the heel region. Although price and release date have still yet to be confirmed, be sure to check back for future updates on this size? exclusive.
During All-Star Weekend being held in Los Angeles, BAIT and Reebok will be launching an exclusive pop-up space.

Distinct YG branding is also found throughout the shoe along with “LOST ANGELES” written on the heel tabs — honoring his home.
Each pair will retail for $130 USD and comes with two sets of laces.

Nike’s Air Max 98 is back in a special Quickstrike colorway. Following a look earlier this month, the model adds its nickname color “Cone,” followed by Tour Yellow and Hyper Grape coloring throughout its layered upper. This release incorporates leather overlays and mesh underlays that rest atop a full length Air Max unit. Nike’s Swoosh logo is added to each lateral side while additional branding is found on the tongue and toe.
Retailing for approximately $220 USD, the Nike Air Max 98 “Cone” Quickstrike is set to release on February 20 at select Nike Sportswear retailers such as Afew.
Ranging from Frieza and Black Goku to Shenron and Vegeta, the pack includes all of the heavy hitters, including a colorway evoking Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue transformation. Select versions, including the Majin Buu, Beerus and Goku shoes, boast character-specific emblems on the heel, like Buu’s signature “M” and a Capsule Corp logo on Vegeta’s shoe. Elsewhere, subtle detailing informs the shoes, like the snakeskin accents on Shenron’s all-green pair, which also boasts the Dragon Ball stars embedded in the visible Air outsole.
Our obsession with Glossier is so real it almost gets out of hand. We basically have the same three-stage reaction every time Emily Weiss announces a new product — going from OMG, then frantically trying to place an order online and finally, impatiently waiting for the packages to arrive. Before we know it, we’ve accumulated not only the entire Glossier product offering, but also the pink pouches that come with each purchase. The obvious thing to do is to use them as toiletry bags when travelling, or as oversized pencil cases, but a girl can only have so many bags for her knick knacks.
Then one day, we came up with a wild thought: why don’t we rework the pink pouches into something wearable?
This completely random idea is realized only with the help of vintage retailer, Frankie Collective. We gave the brand’s creative director Sara Gourlay and designer Tamara Grunberg 10 Glossier bags and let them work their magic. The result is a bubblegum pink bikini set that is rounded off with gold chain strap details – so bold and chic we could totally see it on Kim Kardashian, to be honest.
Nicki Minaj, Gigi and Bella Hadid and Lily Collins stun in the March issue of Vogue – the magazine’s feature on the so-called ”new generation of designers.” Focusing on luxury fashion houses, the article dives into the importance of change within the fashion industry, with pioneers like Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele and Raf Simons at the forefront. During the past three years, we’ve seen brands like Balenciaga, Calvin Klein and Gucci being re-invented by creatives like Michele, Simons and Vetements‘ Demna Gvasalia, and Vogue delves into the importance of change.
Read the full feature over at Vogue, and take a look at the editorial shot by Mikael Jansson in the gallery above.
With Valentine’s Day well and truly underway, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of heart-themed, pink and red products. With that being said, we’ve been obsessed with adidas Originals’ red bodysuit since it dropped and our lust has only been heightened thanks to this lush shoot.
Lensed by Vancouver-based photographer, Marshall Heritage, the simple, yet striking, imagery is as much a celebration of girlfriends as it is of adidas’ stellar Valentine’s-ready offering. Of course, those bodysuits take center stage alongside the Superstar 80s Half Heart sneakers but the best part is the laid-back, carefree and fun spirit that only fully reveals itself amongst true friends.
To celebrate the New Balance 574, Concepts has teamed up with the global sportswear label to produce a revamped design of the kicks.
Inspired by the Concepts x New Balance 997 “Rosé,” which released in 2014, the updated iteration includes a premium rose suede upper accentuated by croc-embossed accents. Pink lacing and a silver back tab and tongue label complete. The reinterpreted pair is a part of an exclusive collection based on the brand’s most renowned collaborations.
Just in time for spring, PUMA has just dropped an all-new Suede Heart Pebble silhouette. Building on the beloved Suede Heart trainer, the new iteration includes details that are true to its name. Playing with an array of different textures, a pebbled textile is seen on the toe box, side panel and heel counter – together, they offer a unique contrast to the existing suede segments. The new offering is available in three different colorways: pastel pink, baby blue and cool grey.
You can shop the latest PUMA Suede Heart Pebble arrivals now at select retailers such as HBX for $85 USD per pair.
PUMA and Diamond Supply Co. link up to release a brand new Suede Classic silhouette in “Orchid Bloom.” The sneakers are dipped in a rich, lavender-hue and feature black accents throughout. The detailing on the kicks includes a suede upper and a co-branded woven tongue label. We also see a crocodile-embossed Formstripe and a Diamond Supply Co. logo on the rear with co-branded PUMA mark.
Pick up the collaboration over at HBX where they price out at $140 USD.
Jordan Brand just announced its newest iteration of the Air Jordan 10. The colorway dubbed “Black/Fuchsia Blast,” features a gradient midsole which starts with bright purple and fades all the way back. The kicks also include black lacing, a leather upper and branding on the tongue. Lastly, is a tonal Jumpman logo on the outsole paired with “Fuchsia” detailing throughout.
Cop “Black/Fuchsia Blast” at select Air Jordan retailers on February 10 pricing out at $140 USD.
PUMA‘s newest Basket Heart colorway has us begging for the spring to come. The popular silhouette returns in a pastel pink with multi-colored floral embroidery on the back half. We see begonias, lilies and other wild flowers embedded into the lateral of the comfy low-top. A satin bow and waffle sole complete the plush trainer that can be worn with your favorite pair of joggers.
If you’re looking for a pair in your size, check out JD Sports where the shoe retails for $120 USD.
