With the seasons changing and summer transitioning to fall, it seems fitting that this pair of Reebok Pump Omni Lite would surface now. Taking on an earthy and rustic look, a brown colorway is applied to the nappy suede upper, while red and purple accents on the branding areas and lining help make for a really appealing scheme. Check with your local Reebok account for availability, or scoop up a pair at Extra Butter.

Nike Unveils New TCU Football Uniforms for Season Opener

NCAA TCU Football Uniforms-12

Entering into their second season in the Big 12, a confident TCU team is not at all surprised by the pre-season number one conference ranking. Over the past few years, the school has become a powerhouse and a school no one wants to see one their schedule. With a high-powered offense and a stellar defense to match, Texas Christian University is in national championship contention each year. Strength of schedule plays a large role in their title hopes. But with games against LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas, if they win out, a BCS game is not at all out of reach.

LSU is the season opener and easily the toughest game on their 2013 schedule. Nike Football has designed a stylish, technologically advanced uniform for the game in hopes that TCU starts off the year with a win. Much like their horned frog mascot, TCU plays with speed, quickness, and specialized defensive tactics to render their opponent obsolete. The all-black uniforms feature purple highlights throughout with bold white numbers that boast the new spike design. Noteworthy red accents also pop within the new uniforms alongside “bloodlines” across the helmet. The coloring is just the start as Nike Pro Combat Hypercool baselayer, socks, Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Gloves, and Nike Alpha Pro TD red chrome-plated cleats aid in heightening players performance through lightweight, durability, and breathable materials.

TCU will wear this special edition Nike uniform against LSU for the season opener on Aug. 31.

Air-Jordan-5-Fire-Red-Comparison-1

One of the four original colorways of the Air Jordan 5, the “Fire Reds” are back for only the second time in 23 years. The AJ5 was brought to life by Tinker Hatfield and features innovative and creative elements and features. As the first model to feature a clear sole, accented by the bright red shark teeth shapes on the midsole, the “Fire Red” 5 personified its endorser. This colorway perfectly complimented the Chicago Bulls jerseys, and the “23? stamp on the heel personalized it exclusively to MJ. Michael Jordan laced up the “Fire Red” Jordan 5 during the first half of the 1990-91 season, which would propel him to his second NBA MVP and first NBA Championship.

The Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” received its first and only retro release in 2007, and is now back in its same color scheme for 2013. The differences from the 1990 OG and the newest retro are few and far between, with the largest eye-catcher being a slimmer modern “23? stamp, as JB kept it classic. Scroll through to see a detailed comparison between the first OG release and the 2013 Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red”.
