Top 5 Sneaker Collaborations (2014 Edition)

#5 Sneaker Collaboration 2014 – Capsule x New Balance ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ Sneakers

Teaming up with Canadian-based sneaker boutique Capsule, New Balance introduces the MT580. Affectionately dubbed the “Canadian Tuxedo,” this denim-wrapped sneaker is inspired by the classic formalwear and features a denim upper with light accents in the heel tab and tongue. We love the New Balance iconic “N” logo in the bright red which adds a pop of colour. It might not pass as wedding attire, but denim on sneakers has never looked so classy. This is a fun collaboration that doesn’t take the whole sneaker collaboration trend too seriously.

#4 Sneaker Collaboration 2014 – Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Adidas Metallic Leather Sneakers

Raf Simons collaborates with contemporary art legend Sterling Ruby in 2014 and the result is a pair of sneakers you’ll either love or hate. Inspired by their shared obsessions and passion for counterculture, this sneaker collaboration is a wearable piece of art. The eye-catching metallic and woven fabric upper is right on style this season and the bi-colour pink and green sole makes this an over-the-top collaboration sneakerheads will love.

#3 Sneaker Collaboration 2014 – Ronnie Fieg x Asics GT-II ‘Brazil’ Sneakers

Brazil may not have won the World Cup this year, but if you’re a supporter of the team, then this sneaker collaboration from New York-based sneaker designer Ronnie Fieg and Japanese athletic brand Asics should be on your ‘To Buy’ list in 2014. Dubbed the GT-II, the bold colours are inspired by Brazil’s flag and the upper sole sports a premium blue leather counter-balanced with a striking shade of gold. This sneaker comes with a matching blue lace or yellow/green lace.

#2 Sneaker Collaboration 2014 – PUMA x WHIZ LIMITED x mita sneakers Trinomic XT2

Sportswear brand PUMA has had a series of great sneaker collaborations in recent years, and for 2014 they’ve teamed up with two Japanese retailers, WHIZ LIMITED and mita sneakers, to introduce the Trinomic XT2. The standout feature of this sneaker is the mesh upper which showcases a gradient hue from navy to red. It’s also full of dapper details like the black suede toecap and bright accents of blood red on the sides and top eyestays. The sky blue iconic formstripe makes this sneaker collaboration undeniably PUMA.

#1 Sneaker Collaboration 2014 – Bodega x Saucony Elite ‘Polka Dot’ Sneaker 

Polka dots on sneakers is an unexpected collaboration and it’s refreshing to see this print make a comeback in 2014. The Bodega x Saucony Elite “Polka Dot” sneaker is occasionally retailed as a two-pack with one pair of sneakers in the Saucony Grid 9000 model and another in G9 Shadow 6 model. Unlike other sneaker collaborations this year which feature aggressive and bold patterns, this collaboration is more subtle and refined. The polka dots are scattered throughout the upper and midsole and will match denim jeans, cargo pants, and tailored shorts if you’re daring.  

Stock Tips – Should I Buy Google Stock?

It seems that there are many people in the world, especially in the United States and Europe, who do not know or care for Google, despite the fact that it is one of the biggest search engines on the web today. In fact, many people are asking me why Google needs to buy up Solyndra. That is silly. Google has not caused Solyndra to fail. I would submit to you that they were simply buying shares in a company that was destined for disaster anyway.


Let’s take a look at what happened with Solyndra, shall we? It seems that many folks on the planet earth are completely anti-science. I would submit to you that it is impossible to have any faith in the scientific community of any country in the world today. That is an argument that can be made throughout the entire world, and that includes all of the so-called “developed” world. This is the result of crony capitalism run amok.

Of course, there are many who disagree with me on this topic. That is okay. You can disagree with me and still read something interesting today at the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and various other publications around the world. You don’t have to agree with me, but you shouldn’t act as if you do. People who disagree with me have every right to do so, I am just being blunt with my opinion here.

It makes no sense whatsoever to have all of the leading scientists from around the world working for a company that will not create new products, technologies, or solutions to the world’s problems. So, it makes sense to buy stock in a company that is going to innovate and bring new ideas to market, instead of having the same old company trading in the same old way. And you can understand that in a society where people are beginning to look for alternative sources of energy and other forms of energy, it just makes sense to buy stock in a company that has the technology, creativity, and knowledge to be at the forefront of these alternative energy sectors.

Also, you need to understand that technology and creativity are very important characteristics of any business, including Google. This is one of the reasons why the tech industry is so strong; it’s because the type of businesses that are in the top tier of any industry are the ones that will typically provide the most innovative products and services. So, you should consider the fact that you are investing your hard earned money into a company that can provide you with a service, technology, or product line that will change the way you live your life in the next few years; you need to consider the fact that the stock market has been bullish on this type of stock over the last several years, so don’t let the bearish nature of the market deter you from buying stock in Google.

Finally, you need to understand that Google is not going to change dramatically overnight. You should expect to see some changes in terms of their advertising strategy over the next couple of months. However, after they’ve done that, you can expect the stock price to continue to grow for the next couple of years. If you’re looking to purchase stock in Google, you need to understand that the key to success is to make sure that you are patient. Don’t expect to see huge results overnight. Google will become a dominant force in the online advertising industry, but you need to be patient if you want to get in on the ground floor of this massive opportunity.

Gucci Bamboo Cuir Leather Suitcase

There are two types of people in this world: those who penny-pinch when traveling and those who don’t. If you liken yourself to the latter, then you might as well travel with style and take this bamboo cuir leather suitcase from Gucci with you. This leather luggage bag, measuring an airport-friendly 18.5″ x 12.6″ x 5.5″, is not only great for a weekend getaway, it’s also utilitarian with its plentiful pockets. There’s an interior smart phone and zip pocket, as well as zip closures in the front and for the leather tags.

What we love about this cuir leather suitcase is its hardened bamboo handle. This bag is in fact an extension of Gucci’s iconic ‘Bamboo Bag’ range which began more than 60 years ago. Like the rest of the bags in the range, the darkened bamboo handle gives the suitcase a classy statement without making it a cheap novelty. Some guys will also like how the bamboo feels on their hand since it won’t crease and fold like leather.

The bamboo cuir leather suitcase also has removable shoulder straps so you can wear it as a messenger bag. Gucci offers the suitcase comes in three colours – classic black and tan and a unique shade of forest green for our more fashion forward readers.


Why Blogger Is A Useful Business Blogging Platform?

Blogger is an American web content management system that allows multiple user blogs with scheduled time-stamp postings. Pyra Labs developed it first before being acquired by Google in 2002. It is hosted by Google and can be accessed via a free subdomain of blogspot. Users register for either a free account or a paid one and can create and access blogs on the site. The system allows users to make posts and share information on the internet.


Users have to log in to use the blog. Once logged in, they can create and make a number of new posts. Once the post has been posted, it will then be stored in its own designated area under the category of blog content. A new entry is added to the blogger’s area under “posts”, and when the user clicks on it, the blog will then appear at the top of the list of posted items.

There are some special “boards” that allow different categories of blogs to be listed together. These categories can include the type of blog, the name of the blogger, and/or the website. These boards can help the bloggers organized their blogs better and even get them listed in the search engine properly.

Many blogs are supported by advertisements. When a blogger wants to display advertising on his/her blog, they must first request permission from Google. This is done by going to the “Google AdSense Programmer’s Overview” page. From there, the user can fill out the necessary forms and submit their application. Upon approval of the application, the advertising on the blogs will begin to appear.

Google also offers a feature called Feedburner. Feedburner is like the Google Reader program. It allows bloggers to subscribe to RSS feeds from various sources and choose to have the posts automatically downloaded to their blog pages. Bloggers can set up any number of feedburner accounts, and each account can have its own URL. Once a blog is set up with a feedburner account, the user can install the feedburner software on their computer and then go to their Feed Burner page and click on the “Subscribe To” link. It is as easy as that!

With Blogger’s many features, it is easy for a blogger to build an attractive, functional, and well-designed blog that is full of content, is interactive, and uses the most effective advertisement options to attract visitors. The best part about using a blogger for business purposes is that it allows bloggers to create a viable online marketing strategy. No matter what type of blogger you are, if you are willing to learn how to maximize the tools at your disposal, you can become a successful online blogger.
