Kanye West X Adidas Originals Yeezy Boost

I've been hearing so much about this much anticipated collaboration lately. It's the adidas Originals YEEZY Boost, from hip hop and fashion icon Kanye West. It was already available February 14 at select adidas Originals retailers in New York and there will be a global release on February 28. The YEEZY Boost will be limited to 9000 pairs and will cost $350 a piece.

This will be the third signature sneaker from Kanye West, and marks his very first with adidas. The YEEZY Boost features a minimal buy technically superb design, true to Three Stripes form. The upper is comprised of premium suede with a perforated toe box, foot strap and a zip-up closure on the outer side. The look is finished with a white rubber sole with ribbed detailing and comes packed with adidas' Boost cushioning technology for comfort and performance.

What do you think of it? I like!! : )

Levi's Introduces 501 Customized & Tapered Jeans

The Levi's 501 Jean, the world's first-ever blue jean featuring a timeless straight leg, relaxed fit and signature button fly, has earned its status as the most coveted jean in the world. However, there is now a slight update!

For Spring 2015, Levi's introduces the NEW 501 CT (Customized & Tapered). Jean wearers have been customizing their jeans for decades, most commonly tailoring the legs for a closer fit. This season, Levi's would do the work for you wearers. They took the Original and added a custom taper, crafting the perfect fit for a modern take on the classic 501 jean. The new 501 CT has a little more room at the waist so it sits slightly lower for a more relaxed fit, and Levi's tapered the leg from the knee to the ankle, so you don't have to.

Depending on the size you choose and your desired look, the 501 can be worn slim, regular or more relaxed in the thigh. They are available in a range of authentic denim washes and this new fit is both for men and women.

What  a great idea! Would you give it a try? Levi's 501 CT: Customized and tapered by Levi's. Inspired by you. Check out the fit guide below for the different ways to wear the 501 CT.

Down-sized: for a slim, modern fit


True to size: for a classic, regular fit


Up-sized: for a more relaxed fit

WalkTop Treadmill Desk by Fitneff

I'm a pretty active guy and go to the gym about 3-4 times a week. When I heard about this Treadmill Desk called The WalkTop, I was definitely intrigued.

I attended the media launch last week to check and try out The WalkTop. It's from Canadian company Fitneff (Fitness & Efficiency) - dedicated to creating active solutions for productive lives, making it easier to add daily activity into your busy schedule.

The WalkTop Treadmill Desk is stylish, light and compact -- designed specifically to attach onto the majority of popular treadmills currently on the market. It can be installed in minutes and adjusts effortlessly to individual height requirements so users can position and reposition the desk for optimal ergonomics and comfort. Unlike most treadmill desks, the WalkTop can be set at an incline to be used when reading or when using a tablet.

The WalkTop Treadmill Desk provides lots of health benefits. It reduces sedentary time and chronic diseases associated with "sitting disease", such as heart diseases, cancer and diabetes. It's also good to have at the office - helps increase work productivity by boosting physical activity linked to increases in mood, memory and attention.

I really liked the WalkTop - what a neat idea! It's great for people, like me who enjoy multitasking - allowing you to get work done while getting some exercise at the same time. At the launch event,  I tried using both a tablet and laptop on the WalkTop. It was comfortable when using the tablet: reading and flipping through pages was easy. However, when using the laptop, it felt a little weird when typing while my feet was moving at the same time. It took me a few minutes to get use to. Overall, it was a fun experience.

For more info on the WalkTop or to order one for your home or office - go check out their website here.
