I know I said it wasn’t going to be a weekly thing…I might’ve been wrong.
I”m a little confused when it comes to the first pair. I saw these Air max 1’s on Pinterest and tried to find the original source and the exact name of the shoes or any info on when they where released. I found nothing on that, after some more googling however I found a strange website that sells these. Not sure how legit this website is, they refer to all their Nike’s as Nike Heels so I’m assuming they sells fakes. I’m guessing these are costum made but if any of you have more info on them, please let me know.

This Air Max 1 in Light Bone and Summit White is a great summer sneaker, it has a great mix of near-whites accented by golden brown and makes for one of the most elegant and versatile designs out there.

In July Nike came out with a re-imagined collection of the Air Force One, especially geared towards women. I personally like the Nike Air Force 1 High the best, they also have a version with Gum Bottoms, which I’m not really a fan of.

This vintage edition of the Reebok Omni Light that came out in 2013 stays very close to the OG look. The orange and dark blue detailing really gives them a nice vintage look.

With their recently released Reebok Classic OG White Leather Pack Reebok brought back both the 1982-born women’s Freestyle Hi and OG Classic Leather silhouette from 83 in their white leather form. I prefer the OG Classic Leather shown down below.
I’ve always loved Freud, his writing can get a little weird sometimes but that just makes it more fun really. For those who speak German, there’s a ton of free Freud books out there. In English the selection of free books is a little more limited. Down below 2 Freud Books you can get for free, just click the image for the link.
The Saucony Elite x Bodega collaboration dates back to 2010. This collab was a special effort made between the two, originally only intended for Japanese retailers. Saucony and Bodega developed ‘Saucony Elite’, a sub part of the Saucony brand created to bring back classic silhouettes with premium materials. The pair below might be a little hard to come by.

Asics recently released these Gel Lyte III in Estate Blue. Originally released in 1991 as a performance shoe, the fall 2014 version features suede and mesh uppers, gel-cushioned midsoles and solid rubber outsoles. I think the polkadots did it for me.

The Ventilator OG in Royal Bleu was released in 2013. This model features an upper made of mesh and a blend of navy suede for added texture. a nice speckled outsole and bright red accents that provide a perfect contrast.

The Reebok GL 6000 was first released in 1985 as part of Reebok’s running category and instantly became a cult classic. In 2013 this retro model took a modern turn with this Cycle Blue/Cement release (amongst others).

APC and Nike have done a couple of collabs now, always keeping it minimal. Same goes for the release they did last April, with another version of the Air Max One. This model features a full navy upper in mesh, leather and suede and a white midsole with a few gum outer sole accents.
Nietzsche is hands down one of my favorite philosophers and I would highly recommend anyone to read his work. Down below, if you click on the image, you can download each of these books for free99, nada, nothing, buckshee, gratis. So what’s stopping you?
Caution: this post is way overdue for those living in the Northern hemisphere. For the nostalgiacs and the sadomasochists, who like to taunt themselves by reminiscing better days, please continue reading.
End of July, right after we had written our blogpost on toxic ingredients which are used in a lot of ( if not most) teas produced by mainstream, popular , non-organic , tea brands ( which included a list of non-toxic options), Teatulia contacted me and offered to send us some samples. I had never heard of them so before accepting their offer I took a look at their website to get an idea of what they are all about. Turns out they are an organic tea company which trumpets its commitment to social responsibility. Based on the information I found on their website and them answering some of my questions I can conclude that their teas fall in line with what we would consider a great non-toxic option, so I gladly accepted their offer.
I would however strongly advice you to go for their bulk loose leave teas. If you want your tea to be 100% non-toxic this to me seems like one of the best, if not the best, options out there. Why I wouldn’t go for the bagged teas? For their bagged teas they use 2 kinds of tea bags:
-Their non GMO corn silk whole leaf bags ( which don’t contain epichlorohydrin) , but as the description points out it does contain a small amount of corn ( so probably a no-go for those who take their paleo diet really strictly) , even though it is non-GMO.
-Their fine cut bags which do contain trace amounts of epichlorohydrin but far below FDA recommended levels.
Overall not too bad but if you want to be 100% on the safe side just lose the bags alltogether.
We received 4 canisters: a green tea, a grean tea infused with Lemongrass, a black tea and their Bengal breakfast tea which is my favorite. I’ve got my eye on their loose leaf neem nectar and their ginger herbal tea so I will definitely place an order once my stack of teas starts to deminish.
There’s honestly not that much I can say about tea, to me it’s like describing a perfume scent, trust me you really wouldn’t get the picture. So I’m not even going to make an attempt. All I can say is that these are one of the best I’ve ever tasted, I like their packaging and more importantly I like what the brand is all about. I didn’t want to do a full blown review on them but I thought it would be interesting to use their tea in a recipe and share this with you guys.
So now we get to the fun part, inspired by Exki’s chilled strawberry- mint tea, which is my favorite chilled drink out there, we decided to create a popsicle that would taste similar.
– 250 gram of strawberries
– a handfull of fresh mintleaves
– 1 tablespoon of acacia honey
– 500 ml of boiled water
– 1 bag of green tea ( we used Teatulia’s green tea but offcourse you can use any green tea you’d like)
– popsicle mold
We added the honey to the boiling water and let the tea steep for about 8 minutes after which we let it all cool down to room temperature. Once the tea is cold enough you can start blending the strawberries with the mintleaves and add all the mixture to your tea. Poor everything into your popsicle mold and put it in the freezer ( I’m sorry I can’t tell you how long it takes before they are done, but it’s definitely longer then my patience can handle) . Of course you could just have this as a chilled drink, in which case I suggest you use slightly less water for the tea and add some icecubes once everything is cooled down. -Enjoy!
As you migh’ve already noticed, a couple of days ago we made a page containing the links to all of our favorite blogs. In this post I want to share some of our favorite recipes from the blogs mentioned under the food section. When going Paleo you often feel as if your choices have become very limited and there’s just a bunch of stuff you can’t eat. With this post I want to help you realize that there’s actually a whole bunch of stuff you CAN eat. You’ll find that going Paleo will require you to experiment with food and be a little more creative. While some people are afraid of experimenting and being creative, just remember that as a kid you were constantly trying out new things and constantly doing creative stuff.
Solebox is a premium sneaker store in Berlin that often teams up with sneaker brands. In June they released a Saucony colab: the Solebox x Saucony Shadow 5000 ‘The Lucanid’. The Lucanid was inspired by the Stag Beetle and comes in two versions, one with an orange trim and one with a green trim, personally I prefer the orange ones.

2014 is a big year for Puma’s R698, after collabs with BWGH and BLACKRAINBOW on this model, PUMA brought back the R698 in OG form with the release of the R698 OG 93. Complete with the look and build of the original 1993 version of the runner.

Last Spring Nike released the Air Max 1 Essential Sail Pack in 3 strong colors: red, green and black. They all consist of a solid color (red, green or black) covering the whole upper, except the swoosh and the tongue label which are white. The same classic white midsole / gum outsole combo is featured on each model.

The Mayfly, originally intended as an inexpensive and lightweight runner meant to last just 100km, got a luxurious update in 2013. The new Mayfly’s got a suede upper with a woven design that stretches from the heel around the entirety of the upper and comes with waxed cotton laces and a leather footbed.

It started in 2013 with a sample version of what was called the Air Max Kin, a Retro Running-inspired model which combined elements of the Air Max 1 and Air Max 90 while spinning in some Roshe flavor with a solid outsole. Nike eventually changed the name to WMNS Air Max Thea before bringing them to retail. They come in lots of different versions but I personally like the simple black ones the most.
