Converse Unveils Latest Basketball Lineup

Converse Mission VLTG ERX 260 2019 Release Date Info

Converse recently unveiled their Fall footwear lineup which includes new models that pays tribute to Converse’s basketball heritage: Mission VLTG V and ERX 260 in both Mid and OX.

Several elements of the decade’s sportswear history is reflected — including an early penchant for tracksuits to a later embrace of bold geometries — and re-crafted.

Converse Mission VLTG V: Originally released in 1995, the Converse Voltage made an immediate statement on collegiate and NBA courts through its dynamic “bolt-chevron” upper pattern. That it was worn by some of the era’s most potent guards led to its mystic and made the shoe a cult favorite (lock-up with school uniform styles helped too).

For 2019, the Voltage is brought back from the archives for the first time, its spirit channeled through the new, women’s-only VLTG. This vision of the shoe reinterprets the ’95 silhouette with an exaggerated heel arch, lightweight SmartFoam cushioning and street-ready herringbone outsole.

Converse ERX 260 Mid: The color blocking of the ERX 260 MID draws from a series of Converse tracksuits sold in 1990 under the “CONS Collection” label. Along with an embossed tongue, these blocked color palettes celebrate the ERX’s over-the-top verve. The shoe is completed by OrthoLite insole cushioning and an EVA heel.

Converse ERX 260 OX: Notable for its brash high and mid models, the ERX gets a low-cut, off-court refresh in 2019. It retains archival design cues, including embossed tongue details, and is given an OrthoLite insole with EVA heel for added comfort.

Below you can see all the releases which will give you a closer look. You can expect all three models to release at select retailers and online at Converse.com during August 2019.

Vans has partnered with Dogtown legend Jeff Ho, famed owner of the Zephyr Surf Shop and Jim Muir, original Z-Boy and skate Hall of Fame inductee, to bring forward an authentic depiction of the birth of a cultural icon; the Era. BLACK RAINBOWS’ interactive programming and highlights will include Vans skate demos, panel discussions with Vans Designers and skate legends, art and music workshops, film screenings and will culminate with live musical performances.

Hire Up: Designer Amy Egelja Has Worked at Some of Comfort’s Biggest Brands; Now She’s Putting Her Stamp on Aetrex

In our new column, Hire Up, FN checks in with new execs from companies across the industry to talk about leadership, strategy and burning industry issues.

For two decades, Amy Egelja has been sharpening her design skills in markets from athletic to comfort. Now as VP of footwear design at Aetrex, Egelja is getting ready to launch her first collection for spring ’20.

Here, she reflects on the positions and people who helped shape her career.

How I Got Here: “I studied illustration and industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design and started working in footwear right away. In the early years, I worked for a number of companies across classifications, including active/athletic and then comfort/lifestyle. Highlights include Airwalk in its heyday, which was an incredible few years while the brand enjoyed tremendous success. That experience solidified my passion for product and branding. I joined Clarks during the time Bob Infantino led the company. That time was a period of growth and expansion, exposing me to a different business model and consumer category. After a few years of consulting, I joined Vionic, formerly Orthaheel, as creative director and VP of design. I learned a lot about orthotics technology and its potential to revolutionize comfort. I later had the opportunity to join Aetrex and help evolve its growing footwear business.

Big Goals: “Aetrex is a 70-year-old company that leads in orthotic and foot scanning technology, along with a fast growing footwear business. I’m working to bring awareness to foot health and the benefits of built-in orthotics while bringing the consumer a beautiful contemporary design she will love.”

Major Challenges: “Building orthotics into product can present both technical and design challenges. Luckily, we have a great team with a diverse range of backgrounds that help bring this product to life.”

Career Mentors: “My father has been a consistent mentor to me. His background in business and engineering is a great complement to my design background.  He’s an incredible problem solver and can build, fix and move practically anything. He’s consistent, fair and, above all, kind. My friend and former colleague Michelle Poole, SVP of global product and merchandising at Crocs, has also been a great support, confidante, and inspiration to me.”

The Best Decision I Ever Made: “I worked independently for a number of years, consulting for a range of comfort and lifestyle brands. While a significant amount of that time was dedicated to building the women’s business at Sperry, I was also able to take on some great projects with other brands at different stages of growth or transformation. The diversity of brands and the business challenges and opportunities, coupled with philosophies about product creation and brand growth have been something I’ve been able to draw [from].”

Worst Decision I Ever Made: “There have been times I should have been more proactive about creating change when something wasn’t feeling right or working anymore.”

Are E-Commerce Sites Covered by Americans With Disabilities Act? Retailers Ask Supreme Court to Weigh In

For the more than 7.6 million Americans that live with a visual impairment, the conveniences of the web aren’t always so convenient. Sites may be difficult or impossible to navigate, getting in the way of even simple tasks, like shopping online.

Meanwhile, businesses argue that the U.S. has yet to set out clear rules for what constitutes accessibility online, leaving many of them vulnerable to a mounting tide of lawsuits. On Tuesday, the Retail Litigation Center and the National Retail Federation asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take a case involving Domino’s Pizza and a blind customer, who sued the chain on the basis that its online ordering tools weren’t compatible with standard screen reading software.

Central to the case is the issue of whether a website is a “public accommodation” like a store or restaurant under the Americans with Disabilities Act (AFA), a 1990 civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability.

“The online environment was never intended to be covered by the ADA,” said NRF senior VP and general counsel Stephanie Martz. “The ADA took effect before the internet as we know it today existed, and more than 25 years later there is no clear, objective guidance on what constitutes an ‘accessible’ website. Retailers are committed to making their websites accessible, but litigation only diverts resources and drives up costs for all consumers rather than allowing businesses to find a solution that works.”

Like Domino’s, the NRF and RLC argue that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ January ruling — which held that the Domino’s website is bound by the Americans with Disabilities Act — took the definition of “public accommodation” too far, and that the lack of comprehensive standards for accessibility makes it impossible for retailers to stay in compliance. (A set of recommended Web Content Accessibility Guidelines has been published by the World Wide Web Consortium, however the U.S. Department of Justice has never finalized guidance on the topic.)

“It is straightforward enough to measure the height of a restroom grab bar to test its ADA compliance,” the NRF wrote in a 2018 blog post. “It is far more complex to accurately measure or predict how a specific website will interact with a specific assistive technology and its user.”

Nevertheless, the issue seems to be gaining traction: website accessibility lawsuits nearly tripled last year, from 814 in 2017 to at least 2,258 in 2018, according to an analysis by the law firm Seyfarth Shaw.

User1st, a website compliance startup, recently launched a free testing tool for web accessibility called uTester. It found accessibility issues on all six of the world’s top e-commerce sites. Amazon, for instance, had 28 issues of high-medium severity, 58 low-trivial issues and more than 99 issues in hidden elements, such as a checkbox in an online form. Other problems included images that lacked text descriptions, static text that couldn’t be enlarged or made a different color and pages that couldn’t be navigated through using only a keyboard.

Run the Numbers: Here’s How Much the Global Sports Market Could Be Worth by 2023

In our new column, Run the Numbers, FN unpacks the data that’s driving top retail trends in the industry.

Consumer spending in the global sports market has continued to make headway.

According to research firm The NPD Group Inc., the industry saw a 7% gain in dollars in 2018 — largely thanks to headlining events like World Cup, which have led to a growing participation in sports activities from the court to the field.

In its latest Global Sports Market report, NPD tracked the performance of more than a dozen sports around the world as well as the categories taking the most market share.

Here are five takeaways.

In less than five years, the global sports market is expected to grow by nearly a third.

Industry analysts at NPD predicted the global sports market will be worth $626.8 billion by 2023 — up 33% from the $471.3 billion tracked in 2018. Boosting last year’s figures were the sport style and multisport categories with a 39% contribution as well as apparel at 37%.

Running advances in seven of the top 10 countries.

In 2018, running showed improvements in seven of the top 10 countries in the global sports market — reaching $33 billion in size, or a jump of 7% in dollars from the prior year. Cycling, exercise and walking, hiking and camping were also among the divisions that showed the most gains.

Baseball and soccer saw booms last year due to new youth bat regulations and the 2018 FIFA World Cup, respectively; however, NPD expects a negative trend for such equipment sales this year. “Given these circumstances that were unique to 2018, the sports equipment market will need to capitalize on new, long-term opportunities to succeed in this new year,” said senior sports industry analyst Matt Powell.

In running, Brooks finishes first.

Brooks has emerged as the top specialty running brand for the second consecutive year-to-date. From January to May 2018, the performance wear company claimed the No. 1 spot in the group with 25.6% of the market share — an achievement it repeated this year at 26.2%.

“Brooks has set the standard for great customer service, which has outsize importance in the run specialty market. Combine the great service with fresh and innovative products, and you have a winning combination,” Powell previously told FN. “[And] Brooks has essentially carried the industry over the last few years as the other major players have struggled.”

New Balance and Saucony followed, with 12.4% and 9.2%, respectively, in 2018. Other brands that made last year’s list (in order of ranking) included Hoka One One, Asics, Nike, On Running, Mizuno, Altra and Adidas.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Reveals That He Owns 4,000 Pairs of Shoes

Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has revealed to his fans that he is an even bigger sneakerhead than we thought he was.

The 24-year-old athlete has been getting a lot of buzz in the sneaker world after the launch of his first signature shoe, the Nike Zoom Freak 1. But according to Antetokounmpo, these are not the only sneakers in his closet.

The hoops star was interviewed by ESPN’s Rachel Nichols on “The Jump” to discuss his new line. When they got into a conversation about the athlete’s experience sharing shoes with his older brother, the baller let it slip that he now owns around 4,000 pairs of shoes, which are spread around multiple locations.

“I got a shoe closet. It’s a big room. In there is probably around 300, 400. But I got a large storage unit that I have in my house. And I have a lot of shoes in Greece also,” Antetokounmpo admitted.

The Milwaukee Buck, who was born in Athens, Greece (earning him the nickname “Greek Freak”), also discussed his feelings about being the first international player to have a Nike signature shoe, as well as winning MVP. The player told Nichols that while he is proud of his achievements, he is ready to set his sights on his next goals.

The Nike Zoom Freak 1 basketball sneaker will be dropping Aug. 2 in a new colorway on Nike.com. The inspiration for the new iteration comes from one of the player’s favorite films, “Coming to America.” The shoe will feature a mesh-based upper decorated with leopard print, which is inspired by the outfit Eddie Murphy’s character, Prince Akeem, wore in the film.

Awkwafina Rocks the Celeb-Favorite Neon Trend at ‘The Late Show’

Awkwafina hopped on the popular neon trend that has been circulating among celebrities this summer.

The actress matched a pair of suit trousers in a neutral shade of forest green with a white and green striped dress shirt for her appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday.

The focal point of the outfit, though, was the star’s footwear. She dazzled the crowd in a pair of bright yellow pumps with a high stiletto heel.

The must-try neon trend has emerged as a celebrity favorite this season.

“Stranger Things” actress Natalia Dyer also sported a pair of yellow neon pumps similar to Awkwafina’s when she stepped out in New York City to promote the Netflix show’s new season. The footwear had a closed toe front and a thin heel that elevated the actress’ height. Dyer paired the pumps with a plaid Versace skirt and a sleeveless turtleneck sweater.

Kim Kardashian has also proved to be a fan of neon. The star posted an Instagram photo earlier this month in a neon orange ensemble. The 38-year-old wore a bright-orange miniskirt from Maisie Willen, a new brand funded and co-signed by Kanye West.

She matched the skirt with a sheer orange top and a Jacquemus “Le Chiquito” bag. On her feet, Kardashian sported her go-to 4-inch wedge-heeled thong sandals from Yeezy’s Season 8 collection.

Irina Shayk Rocked All the Summer Trends in a Tie-Dyed Shirt & Neon Sneakers

Irina Shayk hit all the latest trends in her tie-dyed shirt and neon sneakers today.

The model was spotted out and about in New York City wearing yet another cool-mom look while spending quality time with her 2-year-old daughter. Shayk nailed the casual-chic look as she strolled around in her youthful-looking summer ensemble.

The star battled the heat and humidity in a cropped tie-dyed T-shirt and a pair of white cutoff denim shorts. She accessorized the outfit with a pair of oval sunglasses and a necklace on a thin chain.

On her feet, the 33-year-old kept the look colorful, rocking an eye-catching pair of the Nike Zoom X Vista Grind sneakers with a neon-green mesh lining and orange undertones. The shoes have “dad shoe” vibes with their chunky oversize soles. (Alas, the sneakers, which retailed for $160, are sold out on Nike.com.)

Shayk has recently been seen taking on the role of hands-on mom.

The supermodel was seen out yesterday with her daughter, Lea. For that outing, she took on a slightly more formal daytime look, wearing a Reformation sundress and a pair of Dr. Martens 1460 ALT Core Combat Boots. She paired the dress with a Levi’s jacket and carried a Louis Vuitton monogrammed handbag.

Priyanka Chopra’s Best Red Carpet Style

Whether she’s at the Met Gala, an awards show or a movie premiere, Priyanka Chopra always seems to make a statement on the red carpet. In honor of her 37th birthday today, we’re taking a look back at some of the “Quantico” star’s best looks over the years.

At the Cannes Film Festival this May, Chopra made two glamorous red carpet appearances. She brought along husband Nick Jonas to the premiere for “The Best Years of a Life,” where the duo twinned in white. Chopra wore an ethereal gown from Georges Hobeika with Le Silla sandals.

Another winning recent look came at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Stepping out in support of Jonas, who was performing that night, Chopra commanded attention in a thigh-baring Zuhair Murad gown and see-through Yeezy sandals.

When it comes to the red carpet, there may be no stage bigger than the Met Gala — and the Bollywood actress has never been one to disappoint. In 2018, she wore a burgundy Ralph Lauren gown with a long train and a beaded hood.

The “Baywatch” star made her first-ever Met Gala appearance the year prior — and she certainly didn’t waste the opportunity. Chopra was named to best-dressed lists up the wazoo for her risk-taking trench coat dress and spiky booties, both by Ralph Lauren.

The A-lister has also nailed it at the biggest awards show of them all: the Academy Awards. At her most recent Oscars appearance in 2017, Chopra dazzled in a white and silver gown from Ralph & Russo. The floor-length number hit her Jimmy Choo heels.

We stand and walk on them all day and only realize they need a hefty bit of TLC when we lift them up after a long day.

Good news is there are a lot of affordable foot creams out there for dry and damaged soles. These are our favorites, all under $18.

    Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic, $5 atAmazon

    Another podiatrist favorite is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic. We don’t need to reiterate the hydrating effects of cocoa butter, one of the primary ingredients in this magical cream, that will leave your feet silky smooth.

    The peppermint extract adds a cooling effect that revitalizes fatigued feet.

  • 3

    CeraVe SA Cream for Rough & Bumpy Skin, $16.90 atAmazon

    Not only is CeraVe’s cream doctor-recommended, but it is also a patient favorite. The salicylic acid-infused formula makes it ideal for busting calluses and tough skin. Many prefer this foot cream over other prescription brands.

    Eucerin Advanced Repair Foot Cream, $5.07 atWalgreens

    If painful cracked heels are your biggest problem, Eucerin’s foot cream is definitely your solution. The lactic acid in this formula helps restore healthy fats to your skin, repairing the cracks from within.

    Lavilin Foot Care Award-Winning Foot Deodorant Cream, $15.05 atAmazon

    Dry, damaged feet can also trigger certain undesirable scents. If stinky feet are your problem, pick up this award-winning deodorant cream. It’s all-natural (alcohol and aluminum-free) and uses herbs as the active ingredient to destroy odor-causing bacteria. It lightly hydrates your feet at the same time.

    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, $7.49 atWalgreens

    Vaseline is the most underrated product of all time. It softens any dry body part from lips, to elbows to even damaged soles.

    Slather on some Vaseline all over your feet pre-bedtime and cover with thick socks overnight for immediate results the next morning. Prolonged, continuous application will definitely get rid of crusty, cracked feet in no time

    Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel, $20 atUlta Beauty

    Yes, it’s over $18 and no, it’s not a cream but it’s the quickest way to smooth, baby-soft feet (hence the name).

    Insert feet into the pouches, soaked with various acids and let sit for about an hour. Just remove them, wash and dry your feet and watch them peel the rough first layer over the next few weeks. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of peeling off an old layer of skin to reveal a beautiful new one.
