This Unofficial Nike x adidas Mashup Solves Your “Swoosh or Three Stripes” Problem

If you were having a tough time choosing which sports brand to cop some slides from, an unofficial New York-based mashup has answered your dreams. The slides are designed by Shirt NYC, who has also released dual-branded Nike and adidas T-shirts and hoodies, an”Impossible is Nothing, Just Do It” tee, and hosted a whole pop-up for his bootlegs. Shirt previously described his designs as “100% fake real” but while these sliders may not be exactly co-signed by either brand, they’re also not fakes. Each pair consists of one legitimate Nike slider and one adidas, so you know you’re getting the brand’s quality, if not their blessing.

This Airline Turned Sneakers Into a Traveling Pass to Amsterdam

Geography is often used as a source of inspiration for footwear design. While brands like Nike and Adidas regularly create sneakers for specific cities, this Amsterdam-themed sneaker comes from an unlikely company, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Yes, that's right. The Dutch airline company is getting into the footwear industry with its new shoe, The Amsterdam Sneaker. According to PSFK, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines designed the sneaker as a way to offer tourists a package deal while traveling.
