Fashion| Nike “Swoosh Review” feat. KD7, Air Foamposite & Nike Roshe Run

• To start off this week’s ‘Swoosh Review’ we at a gander at the latest of releases by Nike which is the new yet seasonally correct KD7 Lifestyle PRM QS “Hazelnut”.. Extremely long name to simply say these are a must buy. As sneaker addicts, and shoe enthusiast, we look for sneakers that are great for play but every now and again we stumble across a collection that delivers more on style than performance. These ‘Hazelnut’ colorway gives these KD’s a unique capability to be worn on the court as well as on a rooftop to an exclusive listening party. The Native-American inspired theme detailed on the rear tag compliments the sneakers  upper designed from a premium hazelnut ostrich suede leather, with matching suede and leather detailing to the lacing system. The midsole keeps the classy flow with the tonal midsole with perforated detailing on the toe box and the iconic Swoosh branding at the toe. The overall look is completed by a bright mango leather lining and tribal detailing at the heel pull. You can buy the shoes now from Foot Patrol. We give this pair a “MUST COP” stamp.

• Next on our list is the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Premier “Elephant” which is a great addition to Nike’s Foamposite collections. Foamposite’s alone are a perfect mesh between a sports and lifestyle sneaker as it plays both rolls of being great for on-court play and perfect for a summer outfit. Nike presents a new version of the sneaker for Fall 2014 featuring the iconic elephant print allover. Hints of pink on the upper and the outer sole add a nice contrast to the otherwise black/grey sneaker. This release is almost a offering to the decades that Nike has dedicated time to the foamposite collections. Heavily inspired by the ’90s, the limited edition Nike Air Foamposite Pro Premium “Elephant” will release on October 11 at Nike.com. Enjoy A few more looks at these below and this gets a “Willing To Cop” rating.

• Last on our list for this week’s “Swoosh Review” is the Nike Roshe Run “Tiger Camo”, which is a runners delight. As you may know we are big on style and performance but style tends to out weight the performance sometimes, but Nike has delivered a shoe that gives more to the performance points than to what the fashion industry would demand. recently visiting Kith Store in New York we had the chance to try on the Nike Roshe Run and the performance and comfort that a runner would admired is detailed within the design of this shoe. Nike did not want to ignore the need to make this a fashion forward offering so this pair is lined with bright orange, which is picked up on the eyelets with a lighter brown used on the laces, Swoosh, tongue and heel tabs. The minimalist canvas sneaker has been crafted from a green and brown-blended tiger camo print, and is this time made using ripstop nylon which is much thicker and more durable than the original fabric used on the sneakers. All of this sits on a clean white midsole. Stop by CNCPTS where you can order your pair now. This sneaker gets a “Must Cop” for all runners and a “Might Drop” for all fashion forward sneaker wearers.


Lifestyle | “Men’s Morning Routine” by The Organic Project

The Organic Project thinks natural beauty shouldn’t be confined to the ladies’ side of the beauty cupboard. This spring, men can have their very own natural grooming routine with this simple routine and all-natural, all-Australian made products.

Start your day the organic way with some of the best products Australia has to offer. Follow this morning routine for an energized and revitalized day that will have you looking and feeling your best. 

Step 1 – Shave/Trim your beard

Raw Essentials - Shaving Cream - Normal Skin

If you just need to trim your beard, perform this task as usual and take note of step 5 for beard maintenance.

Before you shave ensure you have taken a shower to allow the hot water to open your pores and to prep your skin. If you don’t have time for this, splash your face with warm water several times. After you’ve prepped your skin, pair your preferred razor or beard trimmer with the Raw Essentials Shaving Cream in normal, sensitive or mature skin. This is a gentle moisturizing shaving cream that has been blended with specific ingredients to suit your skin type. Now, unless you want to look like you’ve been on a date with Edward Scissor-hands, applying shaving cream is a MUST, you should never dry shave.

How to use – After putting a small drop of shaving cream into a bowl, wet your shaving brush with cold water and whip it around the bowl in a circular motion to agitate the shaving cream. Continue to add cool water when necessary until the shaving cream turns into a light lather. Next use the shaving brush to work the cream onto your face in a circulation motion, going over your face multiple times. Let the cream soak into your face for 1 – 2 minutes then perform your usual shave as preferred.

Step 2 – Cleanse

Surface Skincare - Neroli & Lavender Cleanser

By cleansing you are removing the top layer of dead skin cells, oil, pollution and perspiration. By not cleansing you are leaving your oil glands to get blocked with dirt which ultimately result in dry and flakey skin that cause breakouts. Use Surface Skincare’s Neroli & Lavender Cleanser for a gentle cleanse that removes impurities and environmental pollutants that doesn’t dry or irritate the skin. This cleansing cream contains four herbal extracts that help promote clearer, vital and younger looking.

How to use – Gently press the face with a warm cleansing cloth to help open the pores and soften the surface of the skin cells. Apply 2 – 3 pumps of Surface Skincare’s Neroli & Lavender Cleanser to your hand and gently massage into the face as well as the neck. Remove with water. 

Step 3 – Tone

Surface Skincare - Rose Maroc Purifying Toner

Toning is another important step you should always include in your daily routine. It helps close the pores after cleansing so no dirt gets back into your clean skin while also hydrating and preparing the skin to be moisturized. Use Surface Skincare Rose Maroc Purifying toner because it’s naturally stimulating, richly hydrating and improves and tightens the skins pores.

How to Use: Spray directly to your face and neck after cleansing skin and leave on for 15 seconds to allow the skin to soak it up. If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to cleanse after a shave just spray this on your face straight after to reduce redness and hydrate the skin.

Step 4 – Moisturise

Purity Organics - Cedarwood men's cream

One of the main causes of wrinkles is a loss of moisture which is why you should moisturize every morning. Ultimately by moisturizing you are hydrating the skin, leaving it smooth and restoring and strengthening damaged skin.

Use Purity Organic’s Cedarwood Men’s Cream to keep your skin healthy and hydrated all day. It spreads easily and is fast absorbing so it doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily.

How to use – Apply 1 – 2 pumps to the palm of your hand, warming to skin temperature. Next pat and press the product gently on your face and throat.

Step 5 – Beard oil (If you don’t shave)

Purity Organics - Beard Oil

Beards don’t take care of themselves and if you leave yours and don’t maintain it you soon might find yourself being mistaken for Hagrid…no that’s not a good thing. Every bearded man’s morning routine should include a dose of your favorite beard oil. Use Purity Organic’s beard oil to condition and replenish the hair and to ensure your beard is kept un-damaged and looking its best.

How to use – Pour a small amount of beard oil into the palm of your hand and gently work it into your beard, goatee or mustache. Groom and style it as normal using a comb or bristle brush.

Step 6 – Super-food drink

Detox in a Box - Moringa Superfood Powder

Now that you have taken care of the outside of your body you can’t neglect the inside. Use Detox in a Box’s Morigna Super food Powder to create a powerful antioxidant smoothie. This Super food Powder is full of amino acids that repair the body’s damage and is perfect after the gym or for an immunity boost.

How to use: Add two tablespoons of this Super food Powder to your favorite drink to crate an antioxidant green smoothie.

Music | New Music Video by Crystal Caines “WhiteLine” feat. A$AP Ferg

• From producing tracks to assisting artist like A$AP Ferg on their albums, Crystal Caines knows this industry and it’s time this industry pay her some due attention. On her recent release titled “WhiteLines”, Crystal Caines reaches out to her good Harlem homie A$AP Ferg for a feature. The track is the first single to be released from her upcoming EP. The newcomer Caines, flexes both her producer and emcee skills on this track. The up-tempo, nose candy affair is a small sample of the Harlem born artist’s ability as dual threat talent. Combined with an excellent appearance by Ferg, the track screams hit; no pun intended. Caines and Ferg trade lyrical bars with great regularity and cohesion. Caines is on a mission to not be labeled as a hip hop artist–but an artist. A superior talent behind the board and in front of the mic.
