684855-023_A6_Pair_TopDown_HR_large

With the beginning of the season rapidly approaching, Jordan Brand debuts the eighth iteration in Chris Paul’s signature shoe. The Jordan CP3.VIII brings a sleek, minimalist aesthetic to a shoe designed to deliver maximum performance, speed and responsiveness to the court.

684855-023_A4_Pair_HR_large

Chris Paul is incredibly involved in the design process of the shoe, and works closely with Jordan Brand designers to create a shoe that is made specifically for his game. Paul asks designers to incorporate elements that give him an edge over his opponents, similar to a superhero’s kit with concealed secret weapons.

“I take designing the shoe very seriously. I like the testing process, refining the details and pushing the limits on performance,” said Paul, who will be wearing the shoe throughout the upcoming season. “From the cushioning and Flight Web lockdown system to the rubberized outsole that helps me stop on a dime, I know what these shoes can do for me, and when my opponent sees them, they know too.”

Beyond the shoe’s performance elements, the CP3 signature line has always featured personalized touches, helping distinguish Paul’s game-day footwear. The Jordan CP3.VIII continues that trend, with a family tree detailed on the inside of the tongue, complementing the traditional chevron design that pays tribute to the patriarchs of the Paul family.
BUILT FOR SPEED

684855-023_A3_Medial_HR_large

Paul’s game is notoriously fast, and he requires a shoe he can trust when he’s making quick changes in direction, stopping in an instant or initiating a high-speed attack on the rim. The TPU chassis provides this type of supreme stability for the rapid directional moves that Paul is known for. A unique 5/8-height, coupled with an innersleeve, delivers a sock-like fit in a model that is made for players with an up-tempo game.

684855-023_A2_Outsole_HR_large

The textile upper provides lightweight support, while reaffirming durability through synthetic overlays on the heel and toe, as well as rubber pods strategically placed in high-contact areas. Nike Zoom units under the forefoot create responsive cushioning, and a herringbone pattern on the heel enhances the multi-directional traction that has become a staple in the CP3 line.

The Jordan CP3.VIII will launch in two colorways — black/infrared 23/white and cool grey/white/black — at global retailers and Jordan.com on Nov. 1, for a suggested retail price of $130.

Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte “Rose Gold” and “Sage” – Release Date

The Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte V – Rose Gold and Sage are priced at $160 each. Both pairs will be available this Saturday, August 30th, at the Kith Pop-Up Shop at 66 Bleecker St., Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and online at KithNYC.com. The Rose Gold contains pigskin suede for the upper, as ...

The Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte V – Rose Gold and Sage are priced at $160 each. Both pairs will be available this Saturday, August 30th, at the Kith Pop-Up Shop at 66 Bleecker St., Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and online at KithNYC.com.

The Rose Gold contains pigskin suede for the upper, as it takes color unlike any other material, as well as an added second pantone to the crossing stripes for a bit more depth. The 3M formstripes are asymmetrical, featuring white on the lateral and blue on the medial, to give this makeup a bit of a twist. The heel counter is a material Ronnie has never used before, and contains a subtle scratched-detailing that adds a whole new design element to this model. The inspiration behind the Rose Gold was of a photo Ronnie had taken of the sunrise during a flight home from the West Coast.

The story and concept behind the Sage is solely the materials. The execution is very detail-oriented, and need to be seen up close to grasp the effect the materials have. Also, none of the colors seen on the Sage are ones Ronnie has worked with to date. The pigskin upper combines a microperforated sage-colored vamp with sea green overlays. Premium white leather is used for the heel wrap, while the lower heel counter utilizes the same “scratched” material seen on the Rose Gold. The Gel Lyte V’s sockliner has been a point of difference for the silhouette, so an all-new open mesh material has been used to amplify it as much as possible. The aqua blue formstripes and heel tab are also a new material, and faintly display a subtle safari print that is only visible up close.

“These shoes ultimately represent the evolution of what I have done best with Asics in the past, which is a more monotone story. Now, you see multiple different tones and hues that all mesh very well together. It took me quite a few attempts to sort out how I wanted to execute these colorways, but I am more than happy with the result. When I sit down to work on a shoe absent of any concept or story to build around, and I am able to just work with colors, that’s when I create my strongest ideas”

Currently residing in New York City, Tyler Glickman is PONY Footwear’s content creator/coordinator. Whether it’s handling social media, blogging during trade tradeshow season, or throwing an assist to the marketing squad, he’s got it covered. We took some time to ask him a few questions on his current wardrobe, how he got to the position he is currently in, some advice for anyone out there trying to get into this industry, plus some extras. Did we mention he’s only 23? Keep up with Tyler via his IG for the latest and check out the full interview down below.DSC_1828Full Name: Tyler J. Glickman
Age: 23
Company: PONY-US

MN: Whats up Tyler, can you tell us how you got started off in the footwear industry?

Tyler: “I have always been fond of footwear ever since a very young age. I wrestled for the first 18 years of my life and had a huge collection of wrestling shoes (probably over 100 pairs) before I really got into sneakers. My good friend and wrestling partner (Sean Rutan),  was a huge influence for me in getting into wrestling shoes and later on, other types of footwear. I collected special German colorways back from the mid 90′s, mainly Adidas or asics along with a bunch vintage and rare stuff that were very hard to find. Sean and I were known on the mats for our shoes that we would find. My favorite pair(s) i had were the 1996 ‘Adidas Adistar’ which were Kendall Cross’ signature shoe. (1996 American Olympic Gold Medalist) or a pair of Adidas Equipment Combat Speed in teal, pink and yellow. These came out in the mid 80′s and said “Made in West Germany” right on the tongue, which was pretty cool because by the time I got them, in the early 2000′s, there was no “West Germany” anymore. I know both of these are worth a pretty penny now-a-days. Around the mid 2000′s is when i really started to get into sneakers. The silver box era for NIKE SB started it off. The Nike SB Low “Bison” was my first SB and since then, I’ve been collecting ever since.

 

MN: How did you get to where you are currently?

Tyler: I am now currently the content creator and coordinator for PONY footwear. I do our social media, blog along with tradeshows and assist with all marketing projects for the brand. During college, i worked at Footlocker as a sales associate. My collection grew a large amount during this time (thanks to that discount). Leaning a lot about what goes into making, producing, and the functioning of the shoes while at Footlocker, I left the footwear industry as a whole and pursued a job at Movado in the watch industry for two years, helping with design, marketing and social media. About a year ago, I was offered the job here at PONY and left Movado. I was brought on board to help relaunch the brand from the ground up. Since then, we have released collaborative product with Atmos NY, Colette Paris, WISH Atlanta with many more in the works.

MN: What pair of shoes are you currently on the hunt for?

Tyler: I had a pair of the 2006 Nike SB Blazer “Supreme” in white but sold em a while back. Would love to get my hands on a pair of the black or red ones.

MN: What brands are you currently rockin’ with?

Tyler: Nike Sportswear, specifically the “Made in Italy” stuff, Supreme, Alexander Wang, Levi’s and KITH Mercer Pants.

IMG_5402

MN: What’s one of your most memorable/favorite accomplishments  the sneaker industry?

Tyler: To experience first hand the rise of the PONY brand again. There is so much heritage and history behind it. I am very happy to be a part of the team. 

MN: Advice for anyone trying to get into the footwear industry?

Tyler: To know that is a very small industry and word gets around quick.Don’t jerk people because it will come and bite you in the ass.

MN: Dream job in the footwear industry?

To put my ideas for footwear to life.

MN: Favorite release of 2014?
