The Lowdown https://www.footasylum.com The Footasylum Blog - The Lowdown Fri, 07 Aug 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com en Nike VaporMax 2020: it's trash https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/nike-vapormax-2020/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/nike-vapormax-2020/#comments Wed, 05 Aug 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/nike-vapormax-2020/ The future is here and it&#39;s rubbish.<br /> <br /> After the initial VaporMax 2020 launch on the 23rd July, two <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/just-landed/">new colourways</a> will be dropping on Thursday 6th August at 8am.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Initially unveiled as part of the Tokyo Olympics pack, the latest iteration of the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/page/search/?term=vapormax&amp;order=new+products">VaporMax</a> line may not be releasing in the midst of the hallowed 5 rings, but it&rsquo;s future-facing design takes the best of the previous VaporMax models, and adds brand new sustainable and inclusive features that break new ground in Nike&rsquo;s mission for a circular sneaker economy at a time when social responsibility trumps athletic performance.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK32_Nike_VM2020_Blog-1.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> At first glance, it&rsquo;s a shoe that fits the VaporMax DNA, an unapologetically futuristic silhouette with a knitted upper and polarising, technology-led accents. Look closer though, and it&rsquo;s a brand-new sneaker that builds on the successes of VaporMaxes past, and builds towards a brighter future.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The VaporMax 2020 updates the now-iconic Air Unit, this time round it&rsquo;s lower-profile with a more organic layout, peppered with Nike Grind outsole on high-impact areas. The unit itself is made up of a minimum 75% recycled TPU, proving that even at the highest level, performance technologies don&rsquo;t have to be wasteful.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK32_Nike_VM2020_Blog-2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> FlyEase takes different forms across different models in the Nike stable &ndash; in the VaporMax 2020&rsquo;s case, it looks like a mix between the slip-on Vapormax Moc, and the Nike Adapt auto-lacing line (just without the &lsquo;auto&rsquo; part). Pulling on the heel tab tightens the cords on the forefoot, and pulling the tongue tab releases them &ndash; it&rsquo;s lace less innovation everybody can get into.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The application of FlyEase and recycled materials on a flagship model is what makes the Vapormax 2020 a big deal &ndash; it&rsquo;s not the takedown of another shoe, it&rsquo;s not an alternate option of a more traditional mass market sneaker, it&rsquo;s not a gimmick. It&rsquo;s a huge step forwards in &lsquo;Move to Zero&rsquo;: Nike&rsquo;s journey towards zero carbon and zero waste to help protect the future of sport.&rsquo; Where the Space Hippie explicitly told the story of new recycled materials, the VaporMax 2020 uses the same tech as part of larger concept. It&rsquo;s not sustainable tech for sustainable tech&rsquo;s sake, its normalising the use of these materials - elevating them, even &ndash; in a sneaker that has huge cultural and mass-market appeal.<br /> <br /> <img alt="vapormax2020" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2020/vapormaz2020/FA_WK30_Vapormax2020_Blog_Animation.gif" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Before one of the craziest years in living memory, the Oregon sportswear giant were developing the &lsquo;new normal&rsquo; &ndash; where the cost of hype isn&rsquo;t excessive waste, and performance doesn&rsquo;t come at the expense of accessibility. The VaporMax 2020 is the start of a new cycle.

Interview: Zie Zie On Growing From Nothing to Something https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/interview-zie-zie-on-growing-from-nothing-to-something/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/interview-zie-zie-on-growing-from-nothing-to-something/#comments Thu, 23 Jul 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/interview-zie-zie-on-growing-from-nothing-to-something/ <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/blog_1010.jpg" />From quitting a carpentry course and spending his days recording tracks on his phone to boasting over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, rapper and songwriter Zie Zie knows what it means to grow from nothing to something.<br /> <br /> His love for the fans and dedication to creating music for them and not his critics has led to chart-topping hits such as <em>Low Life</em>, <em>Sensei</em> and <em>Fine Girl</em> and multiple collaborations with Aitch, S1mba and King Critical.<br /> <br /> The rapper attributes his success to his hard work and refreshing carefree attitude. Although everyone is entitled to an opinion on his work, Zie Zie doesn&#39;t allow negative comments to break him down as an artist, a mean feat in the world of 24/7 social media.<br /> <br /> We caught up with Zie Zie on the set of our latest <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/hood-rich/">Hoodrich</a> campaign to discuss his success, goals and why failure doesn&#39;t scare him.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;<iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="428" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fqHhKRz3hR8" width="650"></iframe><br /> <br /> <strong>When you were a young kid what were your dreams?</strong><br /> <br /> When I was a young kid my dreams at first I wanted to be an actor because I was really into a lot of movies so my thing from year five to six I was really ambitious about being an actor.<br /> <br /> <strong>Have you ever done any acting? Been to acting school?</strong><br /> <br /> The only acting I&rsquo;ve done was just in GCSE Drama which I got an A* in. When I went to college I was thinking of a more permanent job to actually make money so I didn&rsquo;t really pursue my dreams in drama at college. I studied carpentry so I didn&rsquo;t get to star in any skits or movies.<br /> <br /> <strong>What did your teachers tell you to do as a career at school and what would you say to your success now?</strong><br /> <br /> My teachers used to tell me I&rsquo;d be a bin man in the school. I was quite a naughty kid I used to irritate my teachers a lot. I feel like the way my teachers used to talk to me and how I used to communicate with them has made me who I am today because even though there was a lot of teachers who put you down and say you won&rsquo;t be that great it just motivates you to be someone and now I&rsquo;ve actually become someone I never thought I would it&#39;s just a good feeling.<br /> <br /> <strong>Because of where you are now, what would you say to the teachers?</strong><br /> <br /> I&nbsp;wouldn&rsquo;t gloat but I&rsquo;d just be like &lsquo;I told you so&rsquo;. I knew that I was going to be successful in some aspect and now I am I&rsquo;d be like I told you so.<br /> <br /> <strong>Describe a normal week in your life three years ago.</strong><br /> <br /> Three years ago I recorded a song called Low Life because It was just a thing where I wasn&rsquo;t doing much I was in the block with my friends not doing anything just talking to girls, that was my life, talking to girls on a regular basis. I wasn&rsquo;t even thinking about a job because I was happy with my life and I wasn&rsquo;t too grown and as I got older that&rsquo;s when I started thinking about jobs. But three years ago chilling at home, chilling with my friends talking to girls on a day to day basis that was my normal week.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_HOODRICH_Q2_BLOG_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>What&rsquo;s it like now?</strong><br /> <br /> Hectic, I&rsquo;ve got two managers so they&rsquo;re always at the back of my ears and there&rsquo;s a lot I&#39;ve got to do. There&rsquo;s no more me being able to chill because there&rsquo;s always something that I have to do or got to get done. Like recording, I record every day I wouldn&rsquo;t use to do that I used to record on voice notes with beats in the background just to listen to myself. But now because I&rsquo;ve got a nice set up at home I just record every day. Press shots, interviews so yeah it&rsquo;s a big difference.<br /> <br /> <strong>Is it a tough industry to succeed in and why have you been successful?</strong><br /> <br /> I feel like its only a tough industry to succeed in if you overthink it. If just have fun with it as you do at the beginning and as long as you&rsquo;re still having fun and your fans are liking the music you&rsquo;re putting out you&rsquo;ll always keep yourself motivated. If you let little stuff like comments or views get to you that&rsquo;s when it starts breaking you down as an artist so you&rsquo;ve always got to keep your guard up and always stay positive.<br /> <br /> I think I&rsquo;ve become successful because I&rsquo;ve got that I don&rsquo;t care attitude, in a sense of everyone&rsquo;s entitled to their opinion but it&#39;s not a thing where I have to take it on board. If I want to do something and it feels like it makes sense I will do it and I think its that mindset that&rsquo;s got me to where I am.<br /> <br /> <strong>What was the moment you thought &lsquo;I could do this as a career&rsquo;?</strong><br /> <br /> The moment where I thought I could do this as a career was when I had my first ever show. I put out this tune end of 2016 called Shawty and I just wanted to see the reaction and then as the year went by I was thinking I think it&rsquo;s about time I perform. The song, that was my first song, it did like 100k in two weeks and that was really good for my first ever tune. I was really nervous about asking people what booking fee I could charge so that was a moment where I didn&rsquo;t really know how to come about it and I went about it well and it went quite good.<br /> <br /> <strong>Is that the moment where you realised you needed management and people around you to help market you right?</strong><br /> <br /> In the beginning, it was just me by myself and my manager who is still my manager now so at that point when they accepted the offer we gave them I was like okay, people are willing to pay that for one song then I&rsquo;ve definitely got a future in this.<br /> <br /> <strong>Compared to when you started in music to now how have your goals changed?</strong><br /> <br /> I feel like my goals have changed as in the beginning I didn&rsquo;t really take it as seriously as I do now. So when I first started it was put music out and if I get a good reaction I&rsquo;d put more out. I wasn&rsquo;t even thinking about shows and all of that stuff but as it went on I started taking it more seriously. So my goals changed in the sense of I really want to be a global artist. I want to have fans in all different parts of the country and be someone to inspire people to be able to achieve their dreams.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_HOODRICH_Q2_BLOG_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>How did your environment growing up affect your sound?</strong><br /> <br /> Because I&rsquo;ve always had that I don&rsquo;t care attitude I grew up in South London, I used to live in Surrey so it was two different types of places but even though I moved to South I never really changed my personality. From South, there&rsquo;s a lot of drill music going on but I&rsquo;ve always been into pop music, even when I was younger I used to listen to Justin Bieber and The Script all those different types of people, I think that even though I was from somewhere my mind was in a whole different space when it came to music. I don&rsquo;t feel like my environment sculptured my music it was more of a thing where what was in my head and what I was watching and listening to.<br /> <br /> <strong>Has the environment you&#39;re around now affected anything to do with your sound?</strong><br /> <br /> The only environment that&rsquo;s changed or affected my music is my lifestyle. The lifestyle I&rsquo;ve got now compared to back in the day has definitely had some influence on my music. If you could start again from day one what would you change, if anything? I think I would change and tell myself to take it more seriously at the beginning rather than later on. I was very na&iuml;ve to certain things you needed to know about the business which I know now. I would definitely tell myself to be more serious from the beginning.<br /> <br /> <strong>Outside of music whose journey do you relate to?</strong><br /> <br /> My mother. She&rsquo;s a strong woman and she&rsquo;s been through a lot. Me growing up with her and seeing what she&#39;s been through has sculpted in my head that I need to be the same, in the sense of not letting things get to me, always doing what I want to do and staying positive and motivated.<br /> <br /> <strong>How has seeing your friends and people around you succeed or fail shaped your own mindset?</strong><br /> <br /> It&rsquo;s changed my mindset in the sense of you can only help to a certain extent and you giving off a lot of time and effort to help your friends, or if they fail and you&rsquo;re there for them its hit and miss. You can tell someone to do something but at the end of the day the choices that they make are their own and everyone&#39;s got to make mistakes to understand how to do something good. When it comes to them making mistakes I would let them know not to do it again and learn from it but if they do it again that&rsquo;s on them you can&rsquo;t keep telling people how to live their life if they don&rsquo;t want to fix their life themselves.<br /> <br /> <strong>Are there any mistakes you&rsquo;ve made that you&rsquo;ve really learnt from?</strong><br /> <br /> Yeah, there&rsquo;s loads of mistakes because with me I think before I speak and think before I do but I&rsquo;m usually more of a spontaneous guy when it comes to actually doing stuff so I&rsquo;d rather go through mistakes to learn from them, there&rsquo;s nothing wrong with trying things.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_HOODRICH_Q2_BLOG_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>Are you afraid of failure?</strong><br /> <br /> I&rsquo;m not afraid of failure because the way I&rsquo;ve programmed my brain is to think of the worst before good things because regardless if something bad was to happen you wouldn&rsquo;t know what to do because you might not be expecting it. So, I always expect the worst and hope for the best. I don&rsquo;t think about failure because if you want to do something you&rsquo;ve got to remove all the stops and make sure you accomplish it and if you were to fail you know how to deal with it.<br /> <br /> <strong>What does the phrase From Nothing to Something mean to you?</strong><br /> <br /> If you know what it&#39;s like to have nothing, then you&rsquo;d appreciate having something. When you&rsquo;re coming from nothing everything that you gain or all the greatness&rsquo;s that come into your life later on which is something you&rsquo;ve always got to appreciate.<br /> <br /> <strong>Would you rather be overpaid or underrated?</strong><br /> <br /> I&rsquo;d rather be overpaid because with me, even though I&rsquo;m in the industry, I wouldn&rsquo;t say I&rsquo;m as professional as everyone else as when I got into music it was more of a business aspect of things because I&rsquo;m talented and I&rsquo;ve actually gained fans from what I do it&rsquo;s like a balance because being famous is quite stressful because you don&rsquo;t have much privacy. As an artist, I&rsquo;m already quite underrated but I like my privacy whereas some artists might go outside with their Mrs or family and they might get stopped by fans and sometimes it might be a bit too overwhelming when you just want a nice relaxing day so I&#39;d say I&#39;d rather be overpaid than underrated.<br /> <br /> <strong>How far have you got left to go?</strong><br /> <br /> However far I can take this is however far I will go. Whether it&#39;s another ten years twenty years you can&#39;t really tell the future you&rsquo;ve got to go with the flow.<br /> <br /> <em>You can follow Zie Zie on <a href="https://www.instagram.com/ziezie/?hl=en">Instagram</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/Official_ZieZie?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor">Twitter&nbsp;</a>or shop the latest drop from Hoodrich <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/hood-rich/">here</a>.</em> Tracksuit Refresh https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/tracksuit-refresh/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/tracksuit-refresh/#comments Tue, 21 Jul 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/tracksuit-refresh/ A streetwear essential, a fresh tracksuit is the perfect look for those off-duty days, airport outfits or for when you want to be a little bit more active.<br /> <br /> Here at Footasylum we only stock the best tracksuits from the biggest brands so that whatever occasion you need a tracksuit for we&#39;ve got it covered.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK28_BLOG3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Nike are the OGs of creating athleaisure tracksuits with an edge.

And even though the pubs are now open and we have some of our &#39;normal&#39; lives back, these heroes are still working and helping to keep us safe.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/nhsheroes.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:18px;">Captain Tom</span></strong><br /> <br /> Let&#39;s be honest, Captain Tom Moore is one of the best things to come out of lockdown. Not only has he raised over &pound;30 million for the NHS by walking 100 lengths of his garden, but he also united the country and showed us all that we could do anything we wanted to do during a time where this felt like a hard thing to believe.<br /> <br /> <iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="428" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/a4YcnIXywuo" width="650"></iframe><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>Marcus Rashford</strong></span><br /> <br /> Over lockdown, Rashford made a name for himself off the pitch for all the right reasons. Alongside learning sign language so he could judge a poetry competition he also stopped millions of kids going hungry over the school holidays. After raising around &pound;20 million to supply three million meals over lockdown he then lobbied the government to extend the food voucher scheme into the summer holidays.

Monochrome is pretty much my go to for daily outfits, so I thought sticking with black on white would be a classic statement. I wanted to include my bunny, a daisy and the classic smiley heart.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Describe the process of creating your designs.</strong></span><br /> <br /> I first designed the shoes on Procreate, just a little doodle to try and see what was possible and what looked right without overdoing it, I then drew onto the trainers with the designs I wanted and then embroidered them. It was easy on some parts and harder on others towards the sole I had sore fingers afterwards!<br /> <br /> First pair the high tops probably took me about three days in total to finish, and the low tops I did in a day, with those I just went with the flow of how I was feeling on the day again didn&rsquo;t want to make them too over the top but include some of my favourite doodles. Happy and sad faces on the toes, hearts on the back and daisies one side of the shoes happy, and one sad. I suppose it goes with my constant up and down emotional rollercoaster that life is!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">Did they turn out exactly as you wanted?</span></strong><br /> <br /> They turned out different to what I originally imagined but I think I may have thought it was going to be easier than it was! I do love how they turned out in the end.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK25_CONVERSE_Meg_LOWDOWN_POST_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>What is your favourite feature of your creations?</strong></span><br /> <br /> On the low tops I love the happy and sad faces on the toes at the front of the shoes. It&rsquo;s rare you see this on trainers and I felt it was an outstanding cool statement! And on the high tops, I love the daisy, it&rsquo;s my little sister&#39;s name she&rsquo;s currently in Brazil and always travelling the world so I always incorporate a daisy in there somewhere so she&rsquo;s always with me even when she&rsquo;s not.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How do they reflect your own personal style?</strong></span><br /> <br /> Even though all of my work is extremely colourful my clothing isn&rsquo;t. My wardrobe consists of a lot of black, white and statement colours, but most clothes I wear are black! So, I felt If I were to wear a shoe I&rsquo;ve created every day it would most certainly have to be monochrome!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Has this made you want to customise more of your own trainers/clothing?</strong></span><br /> <br /> I&rsquo;ve actually always customised my clothes! But this is the first time I&rsquo;ve done it to shoes so I will definitely be doing it to more! It&rsquo;s nice to have customised pieces of clothing it makes you unique.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How important do you think expressing yourself through fashion is?</strong></span><br /> <br /> Oh god, so important fashion for me is a massive expression&hellip;most of the time.<br /> It all depends on how I feel that day. But if I wake up in a &lsquo;F**k it, let&rsquo;s take on the world&rsquo; mood you&rsquo;ll probably see me in a crazy outfit, but if I&rsquo;m feeling subdued and calm I&rsquo;ll probably just wear all black. I never want to fit in so for me fashion has to be daring, punk-inspired with a twist of your favourite 80s pop star!<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">Do you think having a creative outlet has helped you cope with Lockdown?</span></strong><br /> <br /> Absolutely, in this time I have been the most creative I&rsquo;ve ever been in my life for sure, I have been able to create things that in normal life I wouldn&rsquo;t have had time to do. I embroidered two cushions for our home which took me over 70 hours for both. I&rsquo;ve painted, created gifs and more digital art. I think without art in this time I would have been in a very dark place, and I honestly feel very lucky for that to be a part of me and my life.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK25_CONVERSE_Meg_LOWDOWN_POST_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How long have you been a Tattoo Artist?</strong></span><br /> <br /> I have been a tattoo artists now since October 2017, I started hand poking from home, from there I got myself an apprenticeship worked my socks off learning as much as I could with the best teachers.&nbsp; Then I took the plunge and went full time in October 2018, from there my career took off in ways I never thought could happen in a million years, I feel very lucky.<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">When inspired you to do this as a career?</span></strong><br /> <br /> I was working in sales selling s**t over the phone to people who didn&rsquo;t want it, I went to work feeling anxious and left feeling angry. Most days I didn&rsquo;t want to go in, I hated my boss, you know the classic clich&eacute; crap job which you wouldn&rsquo;t wish on your worst enemy! I was at such a dead end at the time, I was also in a band with my fianc&eacute; but it just wasn&rsquo;t working out, music is a hard nut to crack. I wanted to be happy in my everyday life so my fianc&eacute; asked me what my dream job would be other than music, I said well a tattoo artist but it&rsquo;s too far out of my reach, I always thought to be a tattoo artist you&rsquo;d have to be able to draw realism and&hellip;well everything, later on I found out this isn&rsquo;t the case!

I tend to try and replicate exactly what I see, which doesn&rsquo;t always work, but thankfully this time it did. I&rsquo;ve never tried any type of crochet designs before, so this was new to me, but I wanted to capture the design from the trainer as best I could without going &lsquo;overboard&rsquo;. I added the black lines from the sole onto the nail which I think gave an edgy look to a set of &lsquo;pretty&rsquo; nails.<br /> <br /> The second design was inspired by my own nail style. I love animal print nail art, it&rsquo;s my favourite. I feel so at home when I&rsquo;m creating it. Animal print doesn&rsquo;t have to be perfect and you can use so many different techniques the list is endless. I thought this would be super eye-catching on the trainer and look badass on a set of nails. I&rsquo;m so pleased with how they turned out.<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">Describe the process of creating your designs.</span></strong><br /> <br /> For the crochet design, I used a sheer milky white for the base colour on the nails so the white pattern would stand out. I matte top coated to replicate the fabric of the shoe. I then went on with a white art gel for the crochet pattern which is &lsquo;no wipe&rsquo; that means you don&rsquo;t need to topcoat, leaving the design 3D and shiny which again gave the look of the shiny crochet design on the shoe. It took a few failed attempts, but this design was pretty easy, and didn&rsquo;t take too long once I decided what I wanted to do.<br /> <br /> For the animal print design, painting the sole of the shoe took a while at first. I used acrylic paint and I struggled to cover the black stripe along the sole. But once I got into the swing of it, it covered really well, and the design didn&rsquo;t take long at all. I used a sponge to create an &lsquo;ombr&eacute;&rsquo; effect along the sole and a thinner pointed paintbrush for the animal print pattern which I just dabbed on. I basically did the same thing on the nails using gel colours which didn&rsquo;t take long either and were super easy.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Did they turn out exactly as you wanted?</strong></span><br /> <br /> Both designs turned out better than I expected, I am so pleased with them both.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK25_CONVERSE_Starbuck_LOWDOWN_POST_2.jpg" /><br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>What is your favourite feature of your creations?</strong></span><br /> <br /> I love the stripe on the crochet nails, those nails are very &lsquo;pretty&rsquo; but that stripe just takes them to the next level - it&rsquo;s the little things sometimes.<br /> <br /> I absolutely loved painting the sole of the trainer with the animal print design, I was super nervous to remove the tape from them once I had finished to see the end result but wow, how they popped when I did - Complete satisfaction.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">How do they reflect your own personal style?</span></strong><br /> <br /> The crochet design is completely new to me, I don&rsquo;t do floral very often but I do love simplicity, and although there is quite a lot of detail on the nails I created they are actually pretty simple when you break it down.<br /> <br /> The animal print nails and trainers reflect my style through and through. The colours, I love oranges and earthy tones. Obviously, animal print is my thing lately, it just had to be done.<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">Has this made you want to customise more of your own trainers/clothing?</span></strong><br /> <br /> Yeah I&rsquo;d definitely be up for doing more customising of trainers and clothing. It could probably become quite addictive.<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">How important do you think expressing yourself through fashion and your nails is?</span></strong><br /> <br /> Personally I struggle to express myself through fashion, being a bigger girl, the clothes I would love to wear don&rsquo;t come in my size or generally don&rsquo;t look right, so nails definitely help me to express myself massively. Nails are an accessory these days, whether it be a classic plain colour or crazy art the possibilities are endless. It&rsquo;s such a fun way to let your personality shine and it&rsquo;s customisable to everyone.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Do you think having a creative outlet has helped you cope with Lockdown?</strong></span><br /> <br /> Oh yes! I&rsquo;ve done nails pretty much every day for myself through lockdown using press on nails. I crave the creativity, it&rsquo;s not just a job for me it&rsquo;s a release. The Converse customising was a lovely surprise, it&#39;s nice to have a purpose and sense of achievement. It was something different and I love a challenge.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK25_CONVERSE_Starbuck_LOWDOWN_POST_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How long have you been a Nail Artist?</strong></span><br /> <br /> I&rsquo;ve been a qualified Nail Technician for nearly 11 years.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>What inspired you to do this as a career?</strong></span><br /> <br /> I had no idea I wanted to do nails at first, I went to college to study beauty therapy for a year after I left school which I didn&rsquo;t particularly enjoy that much. It didn&rsquo;t give me that creative satisfaction. I was going to take a year out until I went to &lsquo;Beauty U.K.&rsquo; where I found my love for all things nails. As soon as I saw the stands with all of the endless possibilities you can create with nails, I knew that was the right path for me.<br /> <br /> <strong><span style="font-size:16px;">Any advice for any aspiring Nail Artist?</span></strong><br /> <br /> Work hard! I&rsquo;ve always loved my job but it&rsquo;s only really been the past couple of years that I&rsquo;ve put my all into it and taken my career to the next level. Before, it was just a job to get me by which I did enjoy, but I definitely didn&rsquo;t explore or make the most of it. In the last 2 years I have transformed my work, which I have Instagram to thank for. I joined &lsquo;nailstagram&rsquo; around 2 years ago, discovered other nail techs, new products and created nails I&rsquo;ve never been so proud of, which has lead to incredible opportunities like becoming a Brand Ambassador for multiple companies including The Gel Bottle Inc and obviously working on this campaign with Footasylum and Converse, which I am so grateful for.<br /> <br /> I think it&rsquo;s important to invest in a brand that you love and admire and will be proud to display on your shelves.<br /> <br /> Practice practice practice! It&rsquo;s so important to keep learning, start small with simple designs and work you way up to the more complicated and detailed nail art. Don&rsquo;t compare yourself to others, some nail techs may have been doing it for 10 years or so, we all have to start somewhere.

All of a sudden, we couldn&rsquo;t go anywhere, couldn&rsquo;t have anyone round the house, and Nando&rsquo;s had closed (even for delivery). Still the plot thickened. No sport. Leagues around the world across all disciplines talk about postponing, then cancelling competitions, panic rises in the throats of all Liverpool fans as there becomes a very real possibility of the 19/20 Premier League season being abandoned &ndash; how will they do it? Finish the season with the current standings? Void the whole thing and start again when it&rsquo;s safe? Surely not&hellip;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Fast forward 3 months and prayers have been answered. Things got worse before they got better &ndash; you got hacked on House Party and had to delete every other game from your PS4&rsquo;s hard drive just to consistently lose on Warzone, but this week the Premier league finally returned. No one has to fill their weekends with Zoom quizzes anymore.<br /> <br /> <img alt="football-returns" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2020/footballcomesback/footballisback.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> 92 games over the next 2 months, and it&rsquo;s (mostly) all to play for. Liverpool just have to keep their nerve to break a 30-year drought, but elsewhere Manchester United will be hoping to recapture their pre-lockdown form and chase down Chelsea and Leicester for a Champions League spot. It&rsquo;s tight at the bottom too, with just 3 points between Villa in 19<sup>th</sup> and Brighton in 15<sup>th</sup>.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> With VAR drama, and David Luiz single-handedly making all Arsenal fans yearn for family Zoom quizzes again, if the empty-stadium atmosphere wasn&rsquo;t so weird it would be like football never went away. The duty of fans across the country is to keep up with the revised schedule.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> To watch all remaining games, you&rsquo;ll need a mixture of Sky Sports, BT Sports and BBC. Of the 92 rescheduled games, 33 are free &ndash; which means even if you can&rsquo;t get hold of your Dad&rsquo;s BT Sport or Sky Go account, you&rsquo;ll still have multiple matches to watch per week.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Sky have the majority, with 64 games, 25 of which will be broadcast free on Pick TV<br /> &nbsp;<br /> BT sport have 20 games, none of which are available for free. Now&rsquo;s the time to make use of free introductory offers, and monthly passes.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Amazon Prime have 4 games, all free to watch &ndash; and you don&rsquo;t need a Prime membership.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Finally, BBC have 4 games, all free, fronted by Gary Lineker. At least someone in the family is back to work.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> It&rsquo;s also worth noting the times games will be played by day:<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Monday</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; 8pm<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; 6pm, 8pm and 8.15pm<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Friday</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; 6pm or 8pm<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Saturday</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; 12:30pm, 3pm, 5:30pm, 7:45pm<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Sunday</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; 12pm, 2pm, 4:15pm, 4:30pm and 7pm<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> To be clear, the total is 8280 minutes of football, not including injury time. That&rsquo;s 5.75 solid days. It&rsquo;s not going to be easy, but we&rsquo;re in this together. Those games aren&rsquo;t gonna watch themselves.

When I wanted to be a tattoo designer, I used to draw lots of Mandalas. As soon as I picked up the shoes, this was the first thing that came into my head, so I knew that was what I wanted to do with them. With the medium being paint and not a pen to create these designs I decided it would be much easier to do straight lines. I work better if I don&#39;t plan exactly what I want to do and just go with the flow of whatever pops into my head and be creative.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> With the crochet Chucks I struggled a bit deciding what I wanted to do. I had originally decided I wanted to add gold glitter, paint and jewels to these but as I was trying to come up with an idea of how I would do this I decided to abandon the idea completely and start fresh. The crochet design on the shoes made me think florals and I recently did a makeup look with Shrine&#39;s dried pressed flowers where I stuck them to my face, so I thought how could I do something like that with these? And then it just popped into my head about using fresh flowers! If they hadn&#39;t stuck down, I would have been back to square one so I&rsquo;m glad they did!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Tell us how you created the designs.</strong></span><br /> For the Crochet pair the only materials I used were fresh flowers, scissors and super glue. I just had to make sure that I did them as quickly as possible as I didn&#39;t want the flowers to die before I had finished. These really didn&#39;t take long as the glue dried almost immediately, I had to work fast. These were so easy to do, it&#39;s just a shame that the flowers died and I had to take them off after a few days.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For the black Chuck Lift, I knew that I needed to make sure I had the smallest, thinnest, shortest bristles I could find on a paintbrush. I went to &lsquo;The Range&rsquo; (I knew they would be open) and was expecting to be buying a paintbrush to customise to how I needed it, however I found the one I used and it was amazing! I&#39;m using it for everything now. As for the paint, I annoyingly couldn&#39;t get any fabric paint delivered quick enough so I used acrylic paint for these. This just means that I can&#39;t wear them out in public now as the paint will just wash off if they get wet, so they will just be on display in my house instead. I am tempted to order some fabric paint and paint over the designs though so that I can wear them out. These took a lot longer as I had to paint one section at a time so that they didn&#39;t smudge.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Did they turn out exactly as you wanted?</strong></span><br /> If I&#39;m honest they turned out far better than I imagined they would. Going into the designs without planning the outcome makes it more exciting and allows me to explore more possibilities.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK24_CONVERSE_Shannon_LOWDON_POST_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>What is your favourite feature of your creations?</strong></span><br /> This is a tricky one haha, they&#39;re both so different. I would probably have to pick the paintwork on the black pair, I love that none of it is the same yet there is a sense of symmetry included.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How do they reflect your own personal style?</strong></span><br /> Annoyingly you can&#39;t see how metallic the paint is on the black Chucks and how sparkly the jewels are. I feel these are quite similar to my own style, I always pretty much only wear monochrome colours and accessorise my outfit with lots of jewellery. That&#39;s what the colours and jewels on this pair remind me of.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Has this made you want to customise more of your own trainers/clothing?</strong></span><br /> Yes! I&#39;m dying to! I&#39;ve wanted to paint on the back of leather jackets for over a year now but just never got round to it so I think I might buy the proper paints and give it a go! I also really want to customise more trainers now too. I&#39;ll end up painting everything I own soon!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How important do you think expressing yourself through fashion and makeup is?</strong></span><br /> I think it&#39;s really important to express who you are and not to worry about what other people think. I don&#39;t think anyone should ever hide who they are, I say wear whatever you want to wear and do your makeup however you want to - don&rsquo;t be a sheep! That&#39;s the great thing about fashion and makeup, you can be as creative as you want to be.<br /> <strong>&nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;">Do you think having a creative outlet has helped you cope with Lockdown?</span></strong><br /> <br /> Yes definitely. I go crazy if I&#39;m not doing something creative, I have the attention span of about two minutes unless I&#39;m doing something I really love. So, by being creative I&#39;ve not actually felt like I&#39;m trapped in the house, it&#39;s made the time fly by and kept me sane.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK24_CONVERSE_Shannon_LOWDON_POST_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>How long have you been a Body Painter and MUA?</strong></span><br /> I&#39;ve been body painting for almost three years now and then I&#39;ve only been a qualified MUA since December. I&#39;ve always been able to do my own makeup and taught myself over the years but I put off doing a course until I had come back from travelling (I went a year after I graduated). I also wanted to make sure that I was picking a course best suited for me and the jobs I wanted to do.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>When inspired you to do this as a career?</strong></span><br /> It was in my last year studying Fine Art at University, I knew I wanted to go into makeup, however, I wasn&#39;t completely sure whether I wanted to still be painting or whether I wanted to just focus purely on makeup. So after Uni, I did a body painting masterclass with Shrine and they offered me a job on the spot. That&#39;s when I knew Body painting was what I wanted to do at that time. Painting comes naturally to me so it wasn&#39;t any different painting on a human to on canvas haha! Wanting to become an MUA came along with body painting.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Any advice for any aspiring Body Painters and MUAs?</strong></span><br /> I would say just go for it! Keep trying and pushing yourself, you don&#39;t realise how far you&#39;ve come until you look back at what you did a year ago!<br /> &nbsp; Under the Spotlight: Converse Pro Leather https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/under-the-spotlight-converse-pro-leather/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/under-the-spotlight-converse-pro-leather/#comments Thu, 18 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/under-the-spotlight-converse-pro-leather/ As well as both making their way into the basketball Hall of Fame, Julius Erving and Michael Jordan had a certain footwear silhouette in common- the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/converse-pro-leather-low-trainer-white-mason-phantom-dust-4038360/">Converse Pro Leather</a>.<br /> <br /> Worn by Erving not long after they were released in 1976 and a young Jordan in his first televised game, the Pro Leather from <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/men/mens-footwear/trainers/converse-pro-leather-low-trainer-white-mason-phantom-dust-4038360/">Converse</a> was the label&rsquo;s first full-grain leather hoops shoe.<br /> <br /> Featuring the now-iconic Star Chevron logo alongside ultra-clean white uppers and punchy red accents the Pro Leather quickly rose to dominate the basketball market.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK24_CONVERSE_PL_BLOG2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Thanks to an early endorsement from Erving, the sneak became known as the &#39;Dr. J&#39; and was the lightest, most durable shoe made for the court thanks to its technologically advanced cupsole.<br /> <br /> The new technology meant that a pre-moulded sole could be stitched to the bottom of the foot rather than a slab of rubber attached to the base with a strip around the midsole.<br /> <br /> This new way of attaching the cupsole allowed the sole to cradle the foot to increase responsiveness, which came at a perfect time for the game itself as a faster-paced style took over the court.<br /> <br /> Due to it&#39;s increasing popularity Converse created a white version with neutral branding that came with markers to allow players to customise their trainers with their team colours.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK24_CONVERSE_PL_BLOG3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> As the trainers evolved padding was removed from the tongue to reduce the bulk, the ankle was reinforced and Converse began to use urethane-coated leather to prevent scuffs.<br /> <br /> If you&#39;re looking for a pair of summer trainers that pay homage to the history of basketball you can&#39;t go wrong with a pair of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/converse/">Converse Pro Leather</a>.<br /> <br /> With a mix of colourways from bright greens to simple monochrome and low tops to high tops we&#39;ve got the Pro Leather you&#39;re looking for to upgrade your rotation.

Boasting a restructured React foam cushion sole with an ultra-plush tongue for a soft dreamlike feel with every step you take.<br /> <br /> The heightened comfort hasn&#39;t resulted in a sacrifice of style. With the React Vision&#39;s comfort-enhancing features all encased in a futuristic and dreamy design. Layered textures and shapes steal the show with this sneak.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_WK20_Nike_react_vision_BLOG_Post_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Available in an all-black or all-white design, the React Vision is made from a breathable engineered mesh with suede and leather elements forming the lacing system.<br /> <br /> A transparent heel clip gives a nod towards the Nike ZoomX Vista Grind and gives you a statement silhouette alongside the matte heel counter which also gives the wearer unrivalled support.<br /> <br /> Exposed stitching, distorted sides and pull tabs on the tongue and back create a deconstructed aesthetic that will make a statement however you style your React Visions.<br /> <br /> To finish the look a Swoosh outline is printed across the lateral and medial side panels, and DIMSIX on the tongue tab adds a touch of Nike&#39;s own story.<br /> <br /> Looking for ways to style your React Visions?

Whether you prefer a classic design like the Superstar or you love the dad trainer vibes from the Ozweego there&#39;s an all-white adidas trainer for everyone.<br /> <br /> Originally launched in 1969 the Superstar was initially created for the courts but after a huge lift in popularity, the shoe became a streetwear staple. An all-leather upper has been combined with a sleek silhouette for the ultimate summer shoe.<br /> <br /> The Ozweego was revived in 2019 after first releasing in 1996 and since then the trainer has been making some serious waves on the streets. A must-have in our eyes, an all-white pair of Ozweegos are the ideal shoes for your daily exercise.<br /> <br /> Looking for more all-white trainers?

Klarna is the provider of smooth payments to more than 200,000 online stores. Over 85 million consumers worldwide have trusted Klarna to securely handle their payments.<br /> <br /> <strong>How does Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments work?</strong><br /> Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments will allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 3 equal payments. The payment for each instalment will automatically be collected from the debit or credit card you entered at checkout. Your first instalment will be collected when your order is confirmed by Footasylum and instalments 2 and 3 are scheduled 30 and 60 days later, respectively. You can always monitor your payments&rsquo; schedule in the Klarna app.<br /> <br /> <strong>How does Pay later in 30 days work?</strong><br /> Once your order is confirmed, you&#39;ll receive an email with payment instructions within two days from Klarna. You&#39;ll then have 30 days to try on your order and only pay when you&rsquo;re happy. Complete the payment online, at your convenience, with no extra cost. You can pay via credit or debit card in Klarna.app or by logging into <a href="https://www.klarna.com/uk">www.klarna.com/uk</a>.<br /> <br /> <strong>Am I eligible for Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments or Pay later in 30 days? </strong><br /> To use Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments or Pay later in 30 days you must be at least 18. Whilst this option is widely promoted, Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments or Pay later in 30 days is subject to your financial circumstances.

For some orders, you may need to provide your mobile number or date of birth, too. All information will be sent to your email address, including payment reminders and links to your online statements. It&#39;s very important that you give us the correct details, as otherwise, you will not receive the payment information.<br /> <br /> <strong>Will a credit search take place against me?</strong><br /> Klarna may run so-called unrecorded enquiries (or soft credit searches) that do not affect credit scoring and are only visible to you and Klarna, but not visible to other lenders. Neither Klarna nor Footasylum run credit searches against you that could impact your credit rating.<br /> <br /> <strong>What are my payment options with Klarna?</strong><br /> Payment for your Pay later in 3 interest-free instalments will automatically be collected from the debit or credit card you entered at checkout. The first payment is taken when the order is confirmed. The second and third instalments are collected 30 and 60 days, respectively, after the first instalment.

Cruyff Turn: Football to Fashion https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/cruyff-turn-football-to-fashion/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/cruyff-turn-football-to-fashion/#comments Thu, 30 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/cruyff-turn-football-to-fashion/ We live in an age where luxury and sportswear are a common pairing in fashion. In fact, the two markets have morphed into one phenomenal trend. Big sportswear brands have elevated themselves to accommodate for luxe sports looks, and now, high fashion houses are designing their collections with practicality and comfort at its heart. As recently as 10 years ago this wasnt the case.<br /> <br /> <img alt="johan-cryuff" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2020/cryuff/WK17_cruyff_brand_history1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> However, there was one brand who went against the grain of what was considered fashion: <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/cruyff/">Cruyff</a>. Cruyff stands as an original template for sleek yet comfortable off-duty sportswear.<br /> &nbsp;The then called, Cruyff Sports Brands, was founded in 1979 by the legendary football player Johan Cruyff. As well as being a renowned icon on the pitch, Cruyff was an icon in the fashion world. To this day, he is still referred to as the &ldquo;Original Dandy&rdquo;. In comparison to other particularly scruffy football players, he wore unusually smart and slim fit clothing in his spare time, gaining the attention of men and women worldwide. His unrivalled desirability had a knock-on effect on football, with more heads turning to the sport just to see him. &nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="cryuff-footwear" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2020/cryuff/WK17_cruyff_brand_history4.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Cruyff&rsquo;s fascination with clothing urged him to play around with design in 1974. Creating his own shirt, he showed he had a natural flair for design as well as styling his own looks. Just 2 years later, Cruyff founded his namesake brand. He reached out to his friend Emidio Lazzarini who was a shoe maker at the time, and together they began creating clothing and sneakers which would breathe &ldquo;luxury football fashion&rdquo;. With Cruyff already having a firm fashion fanbase, the brand was about to see great success.<br /> <br /> During the inception of Cruyff Sports, there was an emergence of the football subculture called Casual Culture, or better known, Terrace culture. Adidas, Sergio Tacchini and Fila made up the wardrobes of these football fanatics. But, Cruyff Sports&rsquo; tailored luxe wear didn&rsquo;t necessarily fit to the image that this subculture wanted to portray. While it may have missed out on a huge slew of fans, it swerved the hooliganism connotations that was later attached to the subculture.<br /> Instead, Cruyff Sports spoke to a more mature audience, in particular those who admired his slim fit Italian luxury style. The brand prides itself on incorporating avant-garde materials and techniques on their clothing and sneakers which enhances its premium edge. But all in all, it has always fed wearers with confidence. In the words of Johan Cruyff himself, &ldquo;Life is all about working on becoming the best possible version of yourself&rdquo;- and this has formed the mission statement in which Cruyff Classics follows.<br /> <br /> <img alt="cryuff" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2020/cryuff/WK17_cruyff_brand_history3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Today, Cruyff can be identified from either of its 2 logos: an outlined lion or a hexagonal football shape, showing its heritage and strong connections to football and their founder, Johan Cruyff. The brand still abides by the smart, tailored aesthetic that Johan Cruyff aimed to produce in his clothing, and footwear stays minimal with sleek designs and silhouettes.

As Chunkz and AJ tackle making a birdbox labelled for ages 6 and up on the box, we discover that DIY might not be the YouTuber&#39;s strong point.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;<iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="428" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/KbLcgWvQlhM" width="650"></iframe><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:20px;"><strong>AJ Challenges Chunkz To A Board Game Marathon</strong></span><br /> <br /> If you&#39;re bored in the house and in the house bored, chances are you&#39;ve got some old board games stuffed away somewhere.
