An all-terrain vehicle if ever there was one, the Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB Sage.

The shoe’s solid-olive upper offers a classic fashion aesthetic, but the tech specs are pure function through and through. The upper’s Flyknit construction and Flywire reinforcement deliver a light, yet breathable fit, while wool integrated in the knit and a water-repellent finish make this the perfect winter shoe — all the more so thanks to the any-surface traction of the Special Field Boot sole unit.

The Flyknit technology is pretty cool and it’s wild with what they are starting to do with the design of the shoes coming on the market.

Now that I know many of the city codes and airport codes around the world.  I’m more in love with these shirts from Pilot and Captain than ever before.   They started out with T-Shirts are are slowly offering more things.  They are also expanding on which cities they offer and you can go on the website and vote for new cities added.   The Heads Of State are the ones behind this project.

I think in December this will be a little Christmas present for myself.  I’m just not sure which city I would like to own first.  There are more on the website… so check them out.  They also offer some cool prints.

TenTree

I recently got two TenTree products.  From the label you get a little code that you can register on the website and it will show you where your 10 trees will be planted.  They were on Dragon’s Den and from that exposure has made it a great new brand on the Canadian marketplace and now it’s starting to branch out world wide.  I have posted a long video below of them on Dragon’s Den as well as a pretty cool video that explains more behind the scenes look at the founders and the company with starting this venture.  It’s pretty cool and recommend.

It’s on my list of 101 Things To Do in 1001 days… so I need a total of 70 trees.  I presently have 30 trees with 3 things purchased.  Very easy goal.

Update:  30!  10 more trees in Madagascar with a new tshirt purchased 16Mar16

Ten trees can have an incredible impact on the ecosystems they plant in. All trees planted are local species, often times in some of the harshest regions.   They use “pioneer” species to ensure survival and often plant more than ten trees per item to guarantee ten trees SURVIVE for every item sold. They aim to plant in areas that have the greatest need.

Madagascar, where mangrove forests have been devastated, leaving locals with infertile farm land and completely wiping out thriving ecosystems.

Here is the first 20 that were planted in Madagascar from my first purchase.

At tentree, manufacturing is one of the key areas where they pursue social equity and environmental sustainability. It is a widely held belief that the garment manufacturing industry is oppressive and irresponsible. Not only do they believe that we are capable of changing this; they believe that it is their responsibility to do so.  To make a broad sweeping statement that tentree will avoid all international production is to accept that there are issues that cannot be fixed. Instead, we work to change the apparel industry through transparency, dedication, and diligence.

Shoe Porn | Roshe Run Sneaker Boot | Ekin

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Nike has moved into Sneakboots and they have created one for the popular Roche Run.  This premium edition of the winter-reinforced Roshe receives a brown leather water-resistant upper with reflective detailing and a grey-speckled Natural Motion sole unit. Meanwhile, Hyper Crimson accents add a pop of color to the heel and tongue tabs.

Back in 2012, Nike Sportswear introduced the world to the Nike Roshe Run. Simplicity was key in the creation of the Roshe silhouette, and the concept of Zen was the source of inspiration. The name stems from the word “Roshi,” which is a title given to a Zen master.

Below is a brown leather version that’s not my first pick… but wanted to share the style.   I like the black version at the bottom that is a bit better.  To view my Shoe Porn List you can view it here.

Time to break out a sweet pair of kicks.  I’m a geek and I’m cool with it.  I’m going to keep these to “inside only” for a while.  No idea if I can make them last like my Nike Aqua Socks… but I will try.  I started skateboarding when I was in grade 6 and by grade 7… I was bringing my board everywhere I went to and skateboarded to school each day.  On my bucketlist is to get a “long board”.
