Nike Stefan Janoski Max

Nike Stefan Janoski Max Preview

Looking to the future for Spring 2014 – the Nike Stefan Janoski Max. The new sneaker features a fully breathable upper constructed almost entirely from mesh. The speckled outer sole is actually the same that is featured on the new Eric Koston 2 Max, a mix of a Free sole and a Nike Air Max 1 outer sole. I need these.

I don't know if I could pull these off but these new lightweight Nike Free Inneva Woven men’s shoe is made with an intricate, 360-degree woven textile that interconnects with the laces to wrap around your foot for a glove-like fit. The Nike Free midsole and outsole offers top-notch flexibility, cushioning and comfort. The latest edition of the highly coveted silhouette can be seen here adopting a dark grey hue for its woven upper, with blue hero being applied to its leather-lined suede heel panel.These are a Japan release but I know my folks here in northern Cali well find a way to get these,

The New Balance Numbering System Explained

new-balance-numbering-system-highsnobiety-1

I've always wondered how New Balance categorize their sneakers in which each has its own individual model and with the help of NB themselves I pass down the this info.....

new-balance-numbering-system-highsnobiety-4
The typical model produced by New Balance is branded with a 6-7 digit code, M1500BWG for example, and refers to three separate qualities. The first one or two letters signifies the gender and trainer type; in this case ‘M’ stands for Men’s and ‘W’ for Women’s. This can differ and instead included alterations such as ‘MR’ – Men’s Running, ‘MT’ – Men’s Trail, or ‘U’ – Unisex. There is also ‘CM’ or ‘CW’, which states that the model has been custom made for an exclusive collaboration, and we advise that if you see this, you be fast in getting a pair.
Secondly is the model number, the easiest part of the system that helps you single out what style you’re after. In this case, the ‘15’ refers to the level of performance (higher numbers equate to superior technology and quality, as well as a higher price tag) and the ‘00’ references to the performance series – also representing that these have been designed for athletes who want maximum performance, due to the higher number.
Finally is the last 2-3 letters which refers to the colourway, and means that ‘BWG’ would stand for Blue/White/Grey. On very select cases it will reference ‘ST’ or ‘MC’ for example, and designates that it is either a stability shoe or motion control shoe, and can also be altered when featured on exclusive releases, such as our ‘Black Pigeon’ last year seen below.

420 History

  

The term “4/20″ was first coined in 1971.

The term is credited to a group of teenagers from San Rafael, California who called themselves “The Waldos.”

The Waldos would convene under a statue of Louis Pasteur who also completed his first pasteurization test with Claude Bernard on April 20, 1862.

The original term was “4:20-Louis.”

The spread of 4/20 can be heavily attributed to The Grateful Dead and their followers.

Initial theories surrounding 4/20′s origins settled on Bob Dylan’s “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35″ in which – under marijuana’s influence – Dylan convinced members of the band to switch instruments. (and 12 x 35=420).

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young recorded “4+20″ a year before 4/20 was coined.

There was no 4/20 police code in California at that time.

The actual penal code in California referencing 420 deals with obstructing entry on public land.

In 2003, when the California Legislature codified the medical marijuana law that voters had approved, the bill was named SB 420.

There are 315 chemical components in marijuana, not 420.

As the date is written in Europe, 4/20 doesn’t exist.

Billie Holiday recorded “Strange Fruit” on April 20, 1939.

Some of the clocks in Pulp Fiction are set to the time 4:20.

In 2010 High Times named Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC as some of the worst pot-friendly cities in America for 4/20.

A Price Is Right contestant bid either $420 USD or $1,420 USD on everything. TRUE.

Lebowski Fest takes place in New York City on 4/20 at the Gramercy Theatre.

50,000 people are expected to light up at Denver’s Civic Center Park on 4/20 despite the state’s stance on public use.
