This Could Be Ronnie Fieg’s General Release Nike Air Force 1

Ronnie Fieg took to Instagram to tease what many believe to be the retail version of last year’s friends & family Nike Air Force 1. Fieg teased the latest shoe by posting a look at the latest cover of Japanese sneaker publication Shoes Master, which features a shot of the collaborative Air Force 1s.

Fieg captioned the post with “First cover of my favorite sneaker publication of all time. The only way to announce this one.” Particularly the last statement makes it sound like this Nike Air Force 1 will be released to the general public.

Late last year, the Kith founder repeatedly teased a pair of Nike Air Force 1s that featured the brand’s box logo debossed into the Swoosh on the side and a mini Swoosh applied at the forefoot.

This latest pair features an all-white leather upper with red detailing on the lining, heel, and tongue. The heel features “Kith Air” branding, while the sole unit looks to be pre-yellowed.

Kith has also been hinting at a move to Japan recently, and this pair is likely to commemorate any new opening in Japan.

No official word yet on when or whether this sneaker will be released, so stay tuned for any updates.

The Best Quotes From Kanye West’s New Interview With WSJ

Kanye West leather suit sunglasses

Kanye West is the subject of a new interview with WSJ. Magazine. The extensive piece finds West touching on everything from his affiliation with Donald Trump to Virgil Abloh being appointed artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear, the coronavirus, and more.

Kanye has never shied away from sharing his thoughts on the influence of his YEEZY brand. In the new interview with WSJ., the rapper/designer went so far as to compare YEEZY to McDonald’s and Apple.

Elsewhere, he touched on having his own version of Jordans and marrying Kim Kardashian, while delving into his hospitalization in 2016. He also doubled down on his political affiliation and discussed the resiliency to get back up after falling on numerous occasions.

You can see the best quotes from Kanye West’s new interview with WSJ. Magazine below. After perusing, be sure to visit the publication to read the in-depth piece in full.

On YEEZY being as influential as McDonald’s and Apple:

“I believe that YEEZY is the McDonald’s and the Apple of apparel. In order to make the Apple of apparel the next Gap, it has to be a new invention. To invent something that’s so good that you don’t even get credit for it because it’s the norm.”

On some of his more egotistical accomplishments:

“I got to live out every version of ego—rapper, I had my own [version of] Jordans, I’m married to Kim Kardashian West.”

On being hospitalized in 2016 for a nervous breakdown:

“I’ve been through Deadpool. You know that movie? I had an actual mental breakdown from attempting to put together all of the pieces.”

On his political affiliation and people making assumptions because he is black and a rapper:

“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine? …It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.’”

On Virgil Abloh being hired as artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear:

“That included one of my best friends being crowned king. Virgil. Louis Vuitton. We grew up on Louis Vuitton–Marc Jacobs duffels. My best friend.”

On the significance of the hoodie:

“The hoodie is arguably the most important piece of apparel of the last decade.”

On stumbling but being resilient enough to rise again:

“We fall down and we get back up. That’s the sign of champions. Anything I do, three times a year, people say, ‘Whoa, that’s the end. That’s the last we’ll see of him!’ People say I’m out of control. I’m not out of control. I’m out of their control.”

It Might Be Time to Reconsider Your Couch

Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.

Furniture, like almost everything else in life, can get emotional after a while. There’s such a thing as spending too much time together. A so-so couch can get ignored when there are places to be, but becomes an eyesore after a week hunkered down at home — not to mention incredibly uncomfortable after a while. Luckily, it’s not a life sentence: you can always switch up your rooms up if you don’t like what’s in them. Although it’s not a great time to go outside with social distancing and self-quarantining in effect, but virtual shopping is safe, easy, and enjoyable. Some of the best couches are available online — in auctions, at design stores, or on furniture re-selling platforms. Here are a handful that might work better than what you have now and will come in handy when those WFH days stack up.

Herman Miller Eames Couch

In the last year, the furniture vanguard has moved from strict mid-modernism to poppier, expressive 1970s shapes. Think Debi Mazar’s Goodfellas character’s ‘70s apartment with its chrome and brushed glass. Fun place. What this means is mid-modern furniture is cheaper now than it’s been in decades. So why not get something informed by both eras? This Eames Herman Miller sofa, with Soft Pads, is a perfect melange of strict ‘50s shapes and ‘70s comfort, and was produced in 1967. (Like a lot of Eames stuff, it was ahead of its time.) The HM Eames might not be cutting edge now, but who needs that? It’s pitch perfect — not cheap but a timeless investment nonetheless. 

1970s Tubular Sofa

Bi-Rite in Greenpoint is one of the better furniture stores in America, with a heavy focus on 1970s Italian furniture, though not limited by that era of design. Even if you don’t have a knot with which to buy the two couches above, Bi-Rite can still help with their nice inventory of affordable lamps and accessories. But the best deal in the shop might be this unbranded 1970s couch: wild, super bright, and simply designed and of no particular brand. It’s pretty fair at $2,500 and is more chic than almost any sofa at that price in a store elsewhere. Why’s that? Off-brand pieces are less collectable, so their values aren’t inflated, but they’re just about as well-made, and often as well-designed. In this case, all you’re paying for is how good it is.

Urban Outfitters Matilda Soft Floor Sofa

This is honestly the nicest couch under $1,000 in America, and it’s half that price. Urban Outfitters occasionally stocks well — they were lousy with big tag Patagonia a decade ago — but it’s not exactly a furniture destination. And yet, here they are with a simple, welcoming sofa that’s better designed (and cheaper!) than almost all its retail competition. There are a couple reasons why it succeeds for so cheap. There’s the design; it’s easier to make a 1970s-style unstructured sofa than to be like most stores and replicate a mid-century Danish couch, which are too defined by their craftsmanship to be done on the cheap. Then there’s the material; the fabric somehow looks like a pair of Issey Miyake Plisse pants, a choice that works better than more traditional cheap fabrics. No one’s going to mistake this for a Toga, but that’s not what this is about. Good for UO. Caveat emptor though: the couch is online only, so who knows if it’s up to your comfort level.

Camping Disc-O-Bed

I like the idea of outdoor couches indoors since they serve the same aesthetic function as tactical clothing in non-tactical situations. The world got a little easier when it became okay to wear Carhartt in cities with two baseball teams. Cheap, well-designed and a statement, the tradeoff here is comfort. There are still rules, though. This weird fake hammock needs to be a counterpoint to a room full of nice, comfortable, actual furniture.

Jean Royère Polar Bear Couch

An important and elegant French couch from 1947 that goes for about a million dollars, you can cut half a million off the sticker price if you get it in red. Does that still make it a “Polar Bear?” Hard to say. Kanye West and Ellen DeGeneres each have the original artifact in white, as did the Shah of Iran. Only about 150 were made. One silver lining to social distancing, if you’re privileged enough to be working, is it can save you money in the long run — no vacations, no going to the bar or restaurants, wearing the same cotton jumpsuit every day.

Tupac’s Signature Bandanas Are Set to Auction for Upwards of $4,000

Tupac bandana leather vest

A selection of Tupac memorabilia is currently being auctioned by Gotta Have Rock and Roll. Among the items up for grabs are two bandanas owned and worn by the late rapper.

The blue and red bandanas were acquired by a “very close family friend of Tupac’s,” per the listing’s description. They are said to be in “very good” condition, as they come with a letter of provenance and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll certificate of authenticity.

While there are no bids on the bandanas at this time, the auction site estimates they will go for anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000. Tupac was well known for wearing a bandana on his head, more times than not sporting it with the tied end to the front.

In addition to the bandanas, you can also bid on an original signed and inscribed publicity photograph, an original Polaroid, a handwritten and signed envelope, a Death Row Records press release, and a set of hotel bills.

Visit Gotta Have Rock and Roll to bid on the Tupac memorabilia today.

Cardi B Finally Shares a Coronavirus Speech That Makes Sense

Cardi B attends the Million Dollar Bowl

Cardi B is back with another coronavirus rant. This time, however, the rapper actually dropped some knowledge about the pandemic and called out celebrity privilege and the government’s inaction.

The “Press” rapper shared a video to her Instagram yesterday, addressing her fans in a surgical mask. Cardi preached about celebrities, president Trump and the current administration, whose flood of mixed messages on Covid-19 completely overlooks the dire reality for millions of Americans.

Cardi chastised celebrities who have the privilege to get tested despite not showing symptoms. “If a celebrity is saying, ‘Hey, listen I don’t have no symptoms, I’m feeling good, I feel healthy, I don’t feel like nothing, but I went and got tested and I’m positive for the coronavirus.’ That cause confusion.”

She continued, “And let me tell you something, the general public, people that work regular jobs, people that get regular paycheques, the middle class, the poor… they not getting treated like the high, the ones up here, celebrities and everything […] Not everyone has the luxury to go to a fucking bedroom and to a big ass house and just stay away from people.”

The rapper also criticized the U.S. government for how it’s handling the crisis, saying the government should pay all health care costs for Americans dealing with the coronavirus. “I feel like the government should take that shit … and not charge people for it, because at the end of the day this shit could’ve been prevented when they found out about this shit a couple of months ago.”

Watch Cardi’s full video below.
