Nike Free 5.0 TR Jon “Bones” Jones Edition


Nike has released a special edition of its Free 5.0 TR for current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones, who just signed with the sports brand last summer. Designed to give the wearer greater freedom of movement thanks to its ultra flexible build, it was only natural that these two parties would find a match with the Free 5.0 TR. The shoes feature a predominantly tonal black upper marked by an interwoven pattern and contrasting Gym Red accents on the outsole, and “Bones” and “Jones” printed on the tongues. A subtle but integral element is the pink that lines the edges of the woven bands, allowing them to pop out from the body of the shoe. Priced at $105 USD, the shoes and an accompanying T-shirt can be found at select Nike outlets as well on .

Despite the great design, I don’t see how this is considered as “functional”. Are going to see more martial arts (or mixed martial artists) with sneaker launches. Are there going to be used inside of the pentagon? Afterall, the sneaker is made for Jon Jones and he is a fighter! I love the fact Nike has taken the step to curate sleek footwear, which I would hope they would be able to design apparel for other sport martial arts styles (i.e. sport karate, Tae Kwon Do,  wrestling, etc.).

Rondo interning for GQ

Boston Celtics player Rajon Rondo will be switching his gym bag for a man bag by interning for GQ. My fellow Louisville native will be learning a thing or two about menswear in the fashion industry. The intern will be making blog post, critiques with the fashion/style savvy magazine. Anyone who nows me will know I am a Miami Heat fan. However, Rajon Rondo is from the Derby City so I had to give some love for this post. After all, its good to see another player whose taken interest in their style along Amare’, Lebron James and D Wade. I am not hating on the guy because at least one of us is putting the city on, for now!
