Men’s Fashion Trends 2017: Pink For Spring

Pink Sweatshirt For Men

Spring has arrived, and with it, it’s brought a new fashion trend. Several weeks ago I read that the pantone colour of the year 2017 was green, specifically a green they call Greenery, which is quite a dirty, mid-to-light green, quite a solid colour. There’s been lots of fashion produced in this colour for this season too, as well as other shades of green, signalling it could be big for Spring, but for me, it’s not. The big trend for Spring, at least the first half, is pink!

Specifically a light or pale pink. I’ve seen a couple of pieces of clothing and fashion in this colour, I already own a few bits and pieces too, and I love it. A really deep or bold pink can be hard to wear and difficult to pull off, with the colour being seen as a feminine option usually. Pale shades are synonymous with Springtime, with grey, white, beige, red, blue, green and yellow all being worn, you can add pink to that list too.

England Away Kit For 2017 Unveiled – All Blue

England squad debut 2017 away kit

Nike and England have unveiled the latest away kit for 2017, and will be debuted against Germany on Wednesday 22nd March. The colour of the kit is a navy with varying shades, and I think it could be the best looking away kit for a while.

As with everything Nike these days, it’s a plain sleek style, with the whole kit comprising of matching coloured shorts and socks, with a silver Nike swoosh and light blue star above the classic England three lions badge. The shirt will be available to buy from from 22nd March. The kit is being modelled by England players Raheem Sterling, Gary Cahill, Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.

Nike have released the kit with a launch by Marcus Rashford and an essay for The Players Tribune, which provides an honest look at Marcus’ relationship with the England team and the shirt. You can read the full essay here at The Players Tribune. Rashford talks about his England debut, scoring his goal against Australia, Euro 2016 disappointment and the influence that Wayne Rooney has had throughout his footballing life.

What do you think of the new kit? Check out more pictures below.

The Adidas Calabasas By Yeezy – Coming Soon?

Adidas Yeezy Calabasas Coming Soon

When you think of the latest in street wear and cities the first one you think of is the city of Calabasas right?

The rumoured soon-to-be latest drop from the world of Yeezy are these trainers; The Adidas Calabasas, or the Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase are being talked about by sneaker heads in the past couple of days, and could be the cheapest from the Adidas/Kanye West collaboration yet. The price is rumoured to be around $120, which could be <£100, that is of course if you can even get your hands on a pair.

The design comes from a tennis trainer, an all-white design with three stripes and some perforated design on the upper and toe. It has the Calabasas logo branding in gold, along with an Adidas logo on the upper.

I think that the trainers do look nice, but that’s because they remind me of one of my favourite trainers from back in the 90’s which have enjoyed a comeback recently…

Reebok Classic or Yeezy Adidas Calabasas?

The Reebok Classic! These look quite familiar, the way that Adidas have done the logo in an almost identical way does not really help them distinguish the trainers from each other.

What do you think of the Adidas Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase?

King Of Soles On Kickstarter – Ireland’s First Sneaker Label

King Of Soles Trainers

With a huge number of footwear labels out there already, is there room for another? We’ve all heard of the classic, Adidas, Nike, New Balance and Converse to name only a few, and of course those individual brands have their own classic silhouettes and collections too. But have you ever heard of a pair of trainers coming out of Ireland?

King Of Soles is a start up trainer company hailing from Ireland, and could be the very first sneaker brand to come out of the emerald isle. The inspiration comes from the custom sneakers culture, where artists customised and paint existing shoes to create one-offs or extremely limited runs. These trainers can go for a few hundred pounds, which is quite a lot of money to spend on some custom trainers.

King Of Soles will have 2 designs available from the Kickstarter; The RastaRunners and PacAttack, with designs in ode to Bob Marley and Jamaica and Pacman respectively, and come in a high top form. They are made from Premium Action Leather Upper, with a Mesh Lining, Chambray Insole, TPR Outsole, and a set of Custom Screw On Lace Tips, with King Of Soles and the Crown, laser etched onto them. These have been created after a monster search of over 10,000 manufacturers from 17 countries, finally a manufacturer was found which focuses on shorter runs and quality.

You can pre-order your pay from the Kickstarter page here, they come in at €70. If you just want to support the brand, you can back them with a pledge too.
