Sneakerheads who pride themselves on wearing only the most exclusive. Self-proclaimed hypebeasts who jump on the latest trend, no matter what. Someone who doesn’t necessarily follow fads, but wants to preserve a treasured moment in an unconventional way. Thanks to Adidas’ latest groundbreaking news, everyone’s wishes will be granted.
Starting in August, Adidas will launch their photoprint app for their popular ZX Flux sneaker on iPhone and Android. This will allow you to take your Instagram photos and express yourself to the world in an innovative way. So forget simple “colorways” as the only means of kicks customization. That sloppy burger at that out-of-state diner you loved so much that you just HAD to take a picture of? That unbelievable sunset you captured before you slipped on a hill? The priceless snapshot of you tossing your cap in the air at your graduation? Yes, even your multiple selfies can all be showcased on your feet for the REAL world to see. This might actually take care of that “they’re wearing the same exact sneakers as me” annoying fashion faux-pas. It might also make you a Sherlock Holmes… don’t be surprised if you look down at someone’s feet and discover that you finally found your Instagram stalker!

Solange, Cassie and Selita Talk Hair With Lisa Price
Carol’s Daughter new “polyethnic” marketing campaign, features Cassie, Selita Ebanks and Solange Knowles. Apparently the ad was getting a lot of negative feedback because it’s supposed to be “polyethnic” but the threesome are all the same shade of light brown or “light skin”. The founder of Carol’s daughter sat down with the girls and decided to wipe away any misunderstandings. Some say that the three still have the same texture of hair but it’s clearly obvious that they all have very different types of hair.
