Truck Driver Steals $19,000 Worth of New Balances

According to ABC2, 29-year-old truck driver Courtney Lynn Slater, was charged with one count of theft between $10,000-$100,000. He pleaded guilty to the charges on Tuesday. The crime dates back to July 2016, when an employee of New Penn Motor Express noticed that a pallet of New Balance sneakers was missing from a trailer. The worker reported the missing pallet and noted that Slater was seen near it before driving off in a truck. Slater was then spotted near a mall parking lot unloading the shipment before returning the truck. While crime surrounding sneakers is usually a serious topic, it's hard not to laugh at Slater's motive behind the theft. In a police interview, he admitted to going through with the crime for a co-worker who offered to pay him $250. Slater is scheduled to be sentenced on May 15, 2017 and he is currently out of jail on bond.

PUMA Takes a Stand Against United's Leggings Ban

Earlier this week, United Airlines was under heavy fire after word spread of a policy that bans travelers from flying in leggings. Diving deeper into the issue, it was revealed that two girls wearing leggings were denied boarding due to the company's dress code, which prohibits the wearing of "see-through clothing" and "form-fitting spandex pants." Relatives of United employees, the girls were attempting to fly with United passes, which subjects them to the policy. Despite a statement and clarification of the policy as it relates to customers, United is still taking heat from those who view any variation as sexist. Among its detractors is sportswear brand Puma, which is aggressively taking a stand against the no leggings policy.

First Look: Air Jordan 1 "New Love"

Here's a first look at the Air Jordan 1 Mid “New Love” 2017 retro, the first return of the model ten years after its original drop. The brazen colorway stays true to its OG version, boasting a yellow and black leather upper, mid-top cut, white midsole and translucent yellow outsole. What’s slightly different, however, is the “Wings” logo on the ankle collar, which gets rid of the clear plastic overlay that appeared on the 2007 model and opts for the same embossed branding other current AJ1 models have. The Air Jordan 1 Mid “New Love” 2017 retro will launch sometime in April for $110 USD.
