The Honeyee Store has recently updated it’s stock with new items from Visvim. An all new crocodile skin Twombly offers a classic rendering of an exotic material, subtle enough to not create any unwanted distractions when worn. They are available in three colors that include white, black, and brown. Other new releases include the Merckx Sea Island Long Sleeve Crew and the Nico Plain Long Sleeve Crew. Despite the relatively plain appearance of these two different crew necks, the stories lies in the choice of content chosen to create these two shirts. The Nico crew was manufactured with Egyptian Giza 45 cotton. Giza 45 cotton is known for its long fibers and some have likened it as the king of all cottons. However Sea Island cotton is no slouch as well due to it’s equally exotic qualities such as softness and silky feel.

Aside from the obvious choice basketball and baseball, Michael Jordan is a big fan of motorsports which resulted in the creation of Michael Jordan Motorsports 4 years ago. To commemorate it’s 4th Anniversary, Jordan Brand have aptly released a special Jordan IV in the same colors of the team. The sneaker also features the Mars Blackmon logo on the heel like Fire Red IV’s. No word yet on a public release but it would be safe to assume these will be hard to come by outside of people affiliated with Jordan Brand.
