What came as a surprise to many, the December 2011 Retro release of the Jordan 11 “Concord” resulted in a rare breakout of riots across nationwide retailers. Somewhat surprising given the current state of footwear culture, the hype had seemingly developed a renewed energy despite the pair’s relatively wide distribution map. In a similar fashion, this weekend’s upcoming Nike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy” release has sparked a string of camp outs across various cities, some upwards of one to two weeks in advance of the pair’s actual drop on February 24. The Air Foamposite One – a shoe that is arguably one of the most recognizable silhouettes within Nike’s rich basketball archives – has seen a range of Retro releases and colorway iterations over the past few years. Yet, while the hype surrounding these past releases was somewhat notable, it is safe to say that the latest “Galaxy” anticipation has garnered the most mainstream attention and discussion. If memory serves, the last time a sneaker camp out in excess of 7-10 days was seen was on behalf of the highly regarded Nike Air Yeezy – a shoe that was not only a namesake to Ye himself, but also was also a completely original silhouette designed under his direction. Not to mention the pair’s availability was more limited. So, what do you think about the recent “Galaxy” camp outs and do you think that the hype is merited? Will you be picking up (or trying to) a pair on release day? Let the games begin.

Meet Rita Ora. A 21-year old British recording artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. While the world first witnessed her in Drake’s music video for “Over,” the chanteuse of Kosovo-Albanian descent has quite a rich musical history despite her young age. In December, she teamed up with DJ Fresh for his new single “Hot Right Now” which has climbed to the top of the UK charts. As Ms. Ora shared with us, she believes in timing. Hence, it is more than right that she is currently finalizing her still untitled soulful debut album following the success of the drum & bass and dubstep infused single. We sat down with her in London and found out about her diverse background, her come up on the music, her move to Roc Nation and much more.
