Though he clarifies that he isn&rsquo;t a collector, but merely a fan of Michael Jordan&rsquo;s legendary brand, he still boasts one of the biggest Jordan sneaker collections in the UK. What separates Tommy and those who just avidly collect the sneakers, is that Tommy has lived and breathed the brand for nearly 30 years.<br /> <br /> As it&rsquo;s commonly known, Jordan is intrinsically a Chicago brand, rooting from their connection with Michael Jordan&rsquo;s long-running career at Chicago Bulls. But, being based in the UK, Tommy has been a spectator of Jordan brand from a far. He has lived vicariously through the hype of the brand for as long as he can remember. What started out as watching the iconic films that featured Jordan sneakers, to later sharing his expansive sneaker collection on Instagram; he has had a Jordan education like no other. Taking a look into his loft packed to the brim with sneakers and sharing old stories of camping out for Jordan drops, the visit was unlike any usual interview we had done before.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_Jordan_Series_2_Blog_6%20.jpg" /></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /> <strong>FA:</strong> Tell us about yourself and why you started buying Jordans?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> I think growing up in London meant you always wanted nice trainers- it started from that. As I got older and I started earning money myself, I got a pair then got another and so on. All throughout those times of building that up, I never thought I&rsquo;m going to have 200/300 pairs of shoes. It&rsquo;s one of those things that gradually built up.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> For you, someone who lives in Britain, what was the first you heard of Michael Jordan and his line of shoes?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> Obviously Basketball was never huge over here. For me it was <em>Space Jam</em>. Everyone growing up knew the name Michael Jordan because of his confidence in sport, just like Tiger Woods. But seeing someone of that calibre in a film wearing Jordan&rsquo;s was like &ldquo;I want those&rdquo;. It is my favourite film ever. When you look back and watch the film, you think &ldquo;oh I&rsquo;ve got those sneakers&rdquo;.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: center;"><strong style="color: rgb(102, 102, 102); font-size: 18px; text-align: center;"><span style="text-align: justify;">&quot;Even today, people see the films, <em>He Got Game</em> and <em>Space Jam</em> and it reminds people of them shoes.&quot;</span></strong></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /> <br /> <strong>FA: </strong>Many films, including a number of Spike Lee produced films, featured Jordan sneakers. How important were these features in film and music videos to the identity of the brand?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> There were so many films, one was called <em>He Got Game</em>. Jesus Shuttleworth (who was played by Ray Allen) he played in the Air Jordan 13 in the movie. So even though Michael Jordan wasn&rsquo;t in the film wearing the shoe, the Jordan&rsquo;s still were. When people watched the film that showed a pair of Jordan&rsquo;s it would have still made people want to go out and buy them. Even today, people see the films, <em>He Got Game</em> and <em>Space Jam</em> and it reminds people of them shoes.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_Jordan_Series_2_Blog_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> So, starting with the Jordan I- the first sneaker made by the brand. Which model stands out for you?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> There is a lot! But it has to be the Chicago. Simply because it&rsquo;s an O.G colourway, it was one of the first ones that came out- &rsquo;85, I&rsquo;m an arsenal fan too so it&rsquo;s a bit reminiscent of that. It&rsquo;s an overall timeless colourway. When Michael played in the Jordan I, he played in a black and red Jordan I, which is obviously now called the &ldquo;banned&rdquo;. He was getting fined for wearing them as he didn&rsquo;t meet the demands of the NBA.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> Today, the Jordan I model has a big presence in the fashion industry and is particularly opted for by fashion conscious wearers more so than other models- why do you think this is?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC: </strong>I think when you are looking at the fashion/high-fashion scene the only Jordan silhouette that has made the changeover is the Jordan I. I think it&rsquo;s because obviously it&rsquo;s a classic, and it&rsquo;s a shoe that can be dressed up or dressed down like you can wear with jogging bottoms, denim, some people even get married in Jordan I&rsquo;s. Also, the fact that you you&rsquo;ve got people now like Virgil who has crossed over his high-end brand, <em>OFF-White</em> with sneakers. I think that&rsquo;s helped with the exposure of the high-end brands coming into the Jordan game as well.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_Jordan_Series_2_Blog_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> The Jordan 4 stands out as another iconic model with a unique aesthetic. Tell us a bit about the 4.<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> With the Jordan 4, it&rsquo;s got 4 lace slots. It&rsquo;s got 2 on either side of the shoe. Initially that was put in place for performance. So, you could lace them up tighter or looser depending on how you wanted the shoe to fit when you were playing basketball. And, they&rsquo;ve got a mesh- a moulded layer of urethane coated mesh which helps breathability while you are playing. If you didn&rsquo;t have this, your feet would get all sweaty as it&rsquo;s a bulky shoe.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> On to the Air Jordan 6, tell us what was unique about that sneaker.<br /> <br /> <strong>TC: </strong>The 6 was based on the Porsche 911, the black and red colourway in particular. The 6 has the tongue, and when the 6 came out no other shoe had that. The tongue had 2 holes and a spoiler on the back. The spoiler was designed to resemble the back of the 911. MJ struggled to get shoes on so the 2 holes and spoiler was designed to help get shoes on easier.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color:#666666;"><span style="font-size:18px;"><strong><span style="text-align: justify;">&quot;It was futuristic, everything changed.&quot;</span></strong></span></span><br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /> <strong>FA:</strong> The design of Jordan&rsquo;s and the design of cars worked well hand in hand. Cars were a big design influence on Michael Jordan, why was this?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> I think this is what separated the 6 from any shoes before it. Michael Jordan was really into cars and thought I want to make this look like a sportscar. The 6 was based on the 911. The concord Jordan 11, the patent finish, was made to look like a convertible. It&rsquo;s interesting to see how they put his passion for cars into designing trainers.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_Jordan_Series_2_Blog_4.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> The AJ6 was more iconic than the 5. Why do you think the 5 didn&rsquo;t see as much popularity?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> I personally prefer the 5 over the 6. But at the time, the 6 design which had the spoiler and sleek design, no other Jordan had anything like that. It was a bit wild and different. The side panelling had perforated holes so even though previous models had mesh for breathability, the perforated holes on the side was new and better. It was futuristic, everything changed.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> The AJ6 also saw a commercial collaboration with Gatorade with their ad &ldquo;Be Like Mike&rdquo;- it was a new marketing concept in the sneaker industry in general. How do you think this would have been received by the public, would it have had an instant reaction?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> I think so. Bearing in mind how good Michael was at basketball. To see him on TV with Jordan&rsquo;s on. Well if you were any boy or girl watching Michael Jordan at tele with the latest trainers. The first thing you are going to say is, &ldquo;Mum, Dad, I want those shoes&rdquo;. At the time seeing a commercial like that, it would&rsquo;ve been huge.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color:#666666;"><span style="font-size:18px;"><strong><span style="text-align: justify;">&quot;It was the first Jordan sneaker that really got people camping outside for Jordan sneakers. It got people excited.&quot;&nbsp;</span></strong></span></span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> So, moving on to some later models, the Jordan 11 was released after Michael&rsquo;s brief stint in baseball. How did the brand communicate that he was cemented into basketball and the brand was to live on?<br /> <br /> <strong>TC:</strong> When he played Baseball, he was wearing the number 45. In Basketball he played the 23 number. When he came back to the Jordan brand, on the Jordan 11 he did a few samples of that, which came out with the 45 on the back. 8 years ago, the Jordan 11 would have been the most sort-after silhouette. It was the first Jordan sneaker that really got people camping outside for Jordan sneakers. It got people excited. Especially over here but in America, the Jordan 11 was a holy grail. No matter what colourway but the Jordan 11 was insane. Slowly, the Jordan 11 got less and less hype because they produced more numbers of the shoe. So, in this day and age, the 1 has taken over the Jordan 11.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_Jordan_Series_2_Blog_5.jpg" /></div> Launch: Air Force 1 Glam Dunk https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-air-force-1-glam-dunk/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-air-force-1-glam-dunk/#comments Fri, 08 Nov 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-air-force-1-glam-dunk/ Think of your favourite Air Force 1&rsquo;s, now make them a bit more extra- that&rsquo;s what you get from the new <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/nike/nike-air-force/?category_list_brands=womens">Nike Air Force 1</a> Glam Dunk collection.<br /> <br /> Released just in time for the festive party season, these sneaks are all you need to add a touch of luxury to your favourite pair of AF1s.<br /> <br /> These sneaks feature everything you know and love about the Air Force silhouette, the trainer sits on a thick cupsole, with the classic Air Force air-filled pocket in the heel for extra comfort and support.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="540" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay5dc43add8bf2d1.64390622&amp;base_url=https://www.linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="820"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay5dc43add8bf2d1.64390622'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '820px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> <br /> A double-layered &lsquo;Swoosh&rsquo; also takes pride of place on the side of the shoe, alongside new metallic gold detailing.<br /> <br /> If there is one colour that means party season is here, it&rsquo;s gold.

Broadway, in Anaheim, California, on March 16th, 1966. On that first morning, 12 customers purchased shoes which were made that very day, ready for pick-up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoe, which is now known as the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/vans/?category_list=web%5fvansauthentic">Vans Authentic</a> was priced between&nbsp;$2.29 and $4.29- a streetwear bargain.</div> <br /> <img alt="1976 vans era" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/era.jpg" /> <h2>Start Of An Era</h2> <div style="text-align: justify;">As the popularity of the Vans #44 deck shoe grew, skateboarders were spotted sporting the sneak thanks to its rugged appearance and sticky sole. Southern California became the hub for Vans shoes and the sneak soon caught the eye of boarders Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, two of the original members of the Z-Boys, who would soon design one of the most iconic Vans shoes of all time.<br /> <br /> Tony and Stacy together designed the Vans #95, now known as the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/page/search/?term=era&amp;brand=vv">Era</a>. With a padded collar for comfort and a variety of different colourways, the Era became the shoe of choice for a whole generation of skateboarders.&nbsp;</div> <br /> <img alt="1977 vans old skool" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/old%20skool.jpg" /> <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Doodle to Old Skool</h2> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /> Most of us doodle when we&rsquo;re sat at our desks right? Well, what was once a random doodle by Paul Van Doren soon became the most iconic Vans shoe of all time- the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/vans/?category_list=web%5foldskool">Old Skool</a>. Then called Style 36, the now-iconic shoe worn by streetwear lovers, sports enthusiasts and celebrities alike was the first to feature the classic Vans side stripe and was their first skate shoe that incorporated leather panels.</div> <br /> <img alt="1977 slip on" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/slip%20on.jpg" /> <h2>The Vans Slip-On</h2> <div style="text-align: justify;">The introduction of the #44 shoe, also known today as the slip-on, in 1979, was the final piece of Vans&rsquo; success in the 70s. With the help of skateboarders and BMX riders, the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/page/search/?term=slip+on&amp;brand=vv">Slip-On</a> became the must-have shoe in Southern California. By the end of the 70s, Vans had 70 stores in California and had begun to sell national and internationally through dealers. Vans Slip-Ons gained international attention and appeal when they were worn by Sean Penn in 1982&#39;s iconic youth film &ldquo;Fast Times at Ridgemont High.&rdquo;&nbsp;</div> <br /> <img alt="vans sk8 hi 1978" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/sk8%20hi.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp; <h2>Take It Higher</h2> <div style="text-align: justify;">The now-iconic Vans side stripe was marked onto another innovative silhouette in 1978.

It was a sport stuck in the grey shadows of the sporting industry. &nbsp;Though it boasted stars Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain, popularity was low against the likes of Football and Tennis. The court was made up of players wearing shorts above the knee and basketball sneakers were strictly clean white. Gameplay was equally strict. Rules favoured defenders, leaving little room for the playful attack that is regularly seen today. When Michael Jordan entered the game, the sport and the culture surrounding it would change forever.<br /> <br /> Michael Jordan made his break in NBA Basketball in 1984 after propelling the US Basketball team to a gold in the Olympics. He was famously signed by the Chicago Bulls and his basketball skill that he had built from a young age proved he was one to watch - the only one to watch. Soon after being signed, Michael was approached by Nike with a deal. However, Michael was sceptical, he had his eye on deal with Adidas or Converse because of their more advanced designs. &nbsp;But Michael accepted the Nike deal anyway, and made sure there was a break in contract. Despite the preconceptions, this would be the start of the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/jordan/">Air Jordan brand</a>.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_14.jpg" /><br /> <br /> In the early 80s, Nike still hadn&rsquo;t reached its elite status that it has achieved today. In the American market Chuck Taylors flooded the streets, Reebok was seen most in aerobic classes and Adidas on the Basketball courts. Nike only had running sneakers going for them but they needed more to establish themselves as a prominent brand. &nbsp;The Air Force 1 and Air Ship were the only basketball models they produced, and they needed a new line urgently if they wanted to continue producing footwear for the sport. They heavily relied on Michael Jordan to save their presence in the market.<br /> <br /> Enter the Jordan I. The start of the Jordan brand story. The Air Jordan 1 defied all things that made up basketball sneakers at the time. It came with a controversial introduction to the court. The NBA banned the model because it didn&rsquo;t confine to all-white sneaker rule. But, Nike agreed to let Michael play in them and pay the $5000 fine per game for as long as the ban should exist. The ban worked in the brand&rsquo;s favour as it increased the everybody&rsquo;s desire to have the 1&rsquo;s.<br /> <br /> Over the next few years, Michael Jordan pioneered basketball and sneakers. Jordan brand rose to the top of the basketball sneaker market, riots started in lines for drops and other basketballers adorned Jordan sneakers on the court. &nbsp;While designing sneakers, Michael Jordan ensured that he honoured Chicago: the team that helped him rise to fame. The Jordan I featured the iconic red, white and black colourway- in the same colours as the Chicago Bulls uniform, and to this day remains the most sought-after basketball sneaker.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_15.jpg" /><br /> <br /> By the Jordan III model, cracks started to show in the foundation of the Jordan Brand. Peter Moore, the original designer for Jordan I and II, had walked away from Nike to start his own brand and, Michael Jordan recognised the forthcoming end to his endorsement with Nike. Almost at the brink of terminating his contract, it was the soon-to-be designer of the Air Max models, Tinker Hatfield, who convinced Michael Jordan to stay by offering him more design freedom and a hand of guidance for as long as he should want. The Jordan III marked the introduction of the Jordan logo. Taken from a LIFE Magazine image of Michael Jordan leaping for the hoop, the &ldquo;Grand Jete&rdquo; was selected as the logo and placed on the Jordan III.<br /> <br /> As Michael Jordan went on to win championships for Chicago Bulls, there became a rising presence of Jordan&rsquo;s on the streets as well as on the court. The people of Chicago felt a homely connection to the Jordan, and with that, the rappers, artists and film stars to come out of Chicago also felt a responsibility to rep the brand. Michael Jordan and the Jordan brand were continuously referenced in 90s rap songs most notably by A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie and Jay Z. It was recognised as a symbol for hope and perseverance for Black artists. Before Kanye West went on to create the Yeezy, he was one of the biggest ambassadors of Jordan brand, and famously wore the 2001 &ldquo;Bred&rdquo; Air Jordan 1&rsquo;s to London Fashion Week. This brought Jordan&rsquo;s into the high fashion stratosphere, provoking fashion collaborations with Levi&rsquo;s and Supreme.<br /> <br /> The Jordan brand legacy is stronger than ever, resonating with fans who weren&rsquo;t even alive during Michael Jordan&rsquo;s final basketball run. In 2018, profits recorded hit $2.9 billion- far greater than any signature celebrity line to date. &nbsp;While many people know about Michael Jordan, and know the Jordan brand, it&rsquo;s the stories in between that still remain untold. <em>A Jordan Education by Footasylum </em>will give a comprehensive look at the brand from the past right through to the present day, where we aim to unfold all you should know about Jordan brand.</div> Meet the Team: Joe Thornton https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-joe-thornton/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-joe-thornton/#comments Fri, 01 Nov 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-joe-thornton/ This month we caught up with one of our UX Designers, Joe, and he gave us a little insight into his life outside of The Asylum.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_MeetTheTeam_BLOG_Meet_the_team%20.jpg" /> Footasylum's Ultimate Halloween Film Night https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/footasylums-ultimate-halloween-film-night/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/footasylums-ultimate-halloween-film-night/#comments Thu, 31 Oct 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/footasylums-ultimate-halloween-film-night/ <div style="text-align: justify;">Spooky season is officially upon us and whether you watch scary films all year round or want to get into the spirit of things while carving a pumpkin, there&rsquo;s no better way to celebrate Halloween than by watching a film from behind a pillow.<br /> <br /> We put out a poll on Instagram to find out which spine-tingling films you thought deserved a place on our list of the ultimate Halloween films.

But, fast forward 3 months and the dream has become a reality.<br /> <br /> On October 17<sup>th</sup>, Loyle Carner launched the <em>Nature Needs Heroes</em> campaign. With the help of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/timberland/">Timberland</a>, they plan to revive Suburban Thornton Heath through an Urban Greening movement, in an effort to give back to a town which helped him grow as an artist. On the day of the launch event which aimed to bring awareness to the project, we caught up with the rapper. Speaking of the project, Loyle Carner was keen to make this a community centred event, to extend the cause across London and continue the work for the foreseeable future. Whether it will leave much time for his musical endeavours, well you will just have to see what Carner said on the matter.<br /> <br /> See below for the full interview with Loyle Carner.

To get there, a southern service train runs regularly from London Victoria, connecting commuters to the city. The centre is made up of a quirky high street of convenience stores and little boutiques. On a typical day, school children run up and down the high street, past the locals who are trying to get their shopping done. But last Thursday, the atmosphere was slightly different.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Before stepping out of Thornton Heath train station, music spilled into the ticket office and onto the platforms. While we thought we would have trouble finding the event, we followed the music like a firefighter to a siren, and just a few steps out the station we found myself in the heart of the Timberland Nature Needs Heroes event.<br /> <br /> <em>Nature Needs Heroes</em> is movement run by Timberland to bring communities together through &lsquo;urban greening&#39;-&nbsp;regeneration of dilapidated areas into greenspaces. While many areas in London are in dire need of urban greening, it&rsquo;s clear why the brand chose to launch the campaign in the Croydon region. Thornton Heath has been responsible for nurturing its fair share of music artists and performers within its diverse community setting for many years. For NME&nbsp;award-&nbsp;winning musician and face of the campaign, Loyle Carner, this project holds&nbsp;a special place in his heart. Having grown up in Thornton Heath, he is eager to give back to the town that continues to inspire his work.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_11.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Ahead of our&nbsp;interview with Loyle Carner, we explored the newly revived Ambassador&rsquo;s House forecourt on Thornton Heath high street. A usually-overlooked space with derelict shops, paved with grey slabs, was given a new lease of life in the best way possible- greenery, community space<ins cite="mailto:Microsoft%20Office%20User" datetime="2019-10-23T16:09">,</ins> and local trading. A temporary marquee had been erected to house a stage for the local artists and Carner&rsquo;s performance in the evening. See Our 7, a hip-hop group scouted by Loyle himself soundtracked kids chatting as they excitedly potted plants outside. Around the edge of the outside space, local organisations set up stands to spread awareness to the cause, and next to them the sound of soul music hummed as a sizzle came from plant-based burgers slapped on a hot plate by a local vegan food vendor.<br /> <br /> As buses rolled past the space on the main road, school kids squashed their faces against the glass excitedly trying to catch a peep at all the new space. People swayed in and out the event, from local workers to little toddlers and their grandparents. A man came on his lunch break from a nearby Tesco and said with surprise, &ldquo;This is amazing; there is music and food here too&quot;. An&nbsp;overwhelming sense of happiness came with the new space,&nbsp;locals were grateful have something exciting happening in their area.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_6.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Across the road from the activities, Loyle Carner sat patiently to be interviewed. He spoke with great passion as he expressed the need for communal spaces where younger artists can spend their free time and grow their talents around likeminded people. These green spaces remind Loyle, and those of us who grew up in a pre-social media era, of playing in parks in our childhood. He hopes this initiative will bring greener environments back for the youth and benefit mental as well as physical health.<br /> <br /> Post-interview, the marquee was closed off in preparation for the evening event. But we sneaked in for a glimpse of the local artists who were sound checking. It was clear to see they were devoted to delivering a knock out performance this evening as they sang proudly on stage. And, as the sun went down, we went outside to find a queue heaving with guestlist-only attendees.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> The marquee filled up quickly with people to get a glance at the evening&rsquo;s entertainment. The tent sparkled with lights wrapped around the bars of the roof amongst the plants, it looked like the most inspiring place to be on a Thursday night in London. After a couple of speeches, Loyle Carner hit the stage with his chosen local artists who were raring to go. Welcomed with a full tent and warm reception, they gave a spectacular performance.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> By the end of the night, the stage was occupied by Loyle and a few of his close friends. As they were singing away, the crowd cheered them on laughing into the night. There was something about this event that felt special. The cause felt like it was truly giving back to a community who deserved it, it seemed like there is something to scream about for everyone involved.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/FA_LoyleCarner_Blog_5.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Stay tuned for the full interview with Loyle Carner, coming soon.</div> Street Style: As Seen On https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/street-style-as-seen-on-october/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/street-style-as-seen-on-october/#comments Wed, 23 Oct 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/street-style-as-seen-on-october/ <div style="text-align: justify;">We love seeing the hottest influencers in the game sharing their fire looks on the gram.

But have you ever thought about starting up a streetwear brand with that cash in your pocket?<br /> <br /> Luckily, Jay Williams, the founder of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/hood-rich/?order=new+products">Hoodrich</a>, decided to do just that and has built up his brand from nothing to something.<br /> <br /> The Hoodrich lifestyle was founded back in 2014 in Birmingham when Jay decided to convert his passion for underground streetwear and music into an unstoppable streetwear brand.<br /> <br /> That &pound;200 saw the first 20 Hoodrich tees made and paired with Jay&#39;s know-how there was no stopping Hoodrich. In 2017 the brand saw the introduction of cut and sew and in 2018 the brand jet off to LA for an editorial shoot- a far cry from its Birmingham beginnings.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/nothing%20to%20something.jpg" /><br /> <br /> However, the brand has never forgotten where it came from. The tagline from the beginning of the brand has always been &#39;from nothing to something&#39; and it remains today, with Hoodrich embodying the struggle and the come up.<br /> <br /> Growing from a one-man bedroom brand to a national manufacturing operation, with Hoodrich apparel being worn by the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Giggs and Birmingham&rsquo;s Mist and Jaykae, Hoodrich is not a brand to be messed with.<br /> <br /> If you&#39;re looking for bold streetwear that has roots then Hoodrich is the brand for you. The latest collection to drop at Footasylum features everything you need for an urban wardrobe.<br /> <br /> The Hoodrich lifestyle is about looking fresh, feeling fresh and not forgetting where you came from, shop the exclusive&nbsp;<a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/hood-rich/?order=new+products">Footasylum collection</a> of Hoodrich t-shirts, joggers, sweatshirts, jackets and more to give your look some meaning.

I&rsquo;m ready to fight even now, like, I can&rsquo;t wait to get in that ring and just destroy him man. He was moving around like a clown, looked like he had a problem. He was so sporadic and bouncing around, he couldn&rsquo;t keep calm.<br /> <br /> I was calm and collected because I know what I have been training for. When I get in that ring he&rsquo;s just going to feel the power, I&rsquo;ve just levelled up. He&rsquo;s gonna be running, he&rsquo;s going to be scared.<br /> <br /> <strong>You were really calm tonight, is that how you&rsquo;re approaching the fight? </strong><br /> <br /> Obviously we were calm when it comes to the press conference but best believe were not when it comes to training, we work hard, so hard. People will see eventually how hard we work; I&rsquo;ve been training harder than the last fight.<br /> <br /> If you support Logan- that&rsquo;s a shame. If you support me well played. You&rsquo;re gonna see a big fight and you&rsquo;re going to see a bug knockout trust me. Logan&rsquo;s getting finished mark my words.<br /> <br /> <strong>What&rsquo;s your big news? </strong><br /> <br /> I&rsquo;m gonna be releasing a new single with some big big features, features no one is even going to suspect.<br /> <br /> I&rsquo;m going to beat Logan and two days after I&rsquo;m going to be filming a music video.<br /> <br /> <strong>Can you give us the name of the track? </strong><br /> <br /> Erm I can, it&rsquo;s called Down Like That.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <em>Here at The Lowdown, we&rsquo;re mega-hyped for this explosive rematch and you can shop the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/ksi-style/">KSI collection</a> at Footasylum while you count down to the 9th November.</em></div> </div> What Your Uni Course Says About You https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/lowdown-what-your-uni-course-says-about-you/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/lowdown-what-your-uni-course-says-about-you/#comments Fri, 04 Oct 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/lowdown-what-your-uni-course-says-about-you/ <div><br /> With fresher&#39;s almost over it&#39;s time to start figuring out your fellow housemates just by looking at what course they are studying. Check out below what each university degree says about the student - brace yourself for some home truths.<br /> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">Sports Science</span><br /> <br /> <iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="270" src="https://giphy.com/embed/l0HlLqvuv41y2VJVC" width="100%"></iframe> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/football-soccer-yes-l0HlLqvuv41y2VJVC">via GIPHY</a></p> These guys are the British Uni equivalents of the Jocks in American High School movies. They&rsquo;re the cool guys who turn up to Uni at 1 minute to 9, in a fresh new tracksuit and the latest trainers. They love sport. They aced PE at A-Level and were the captains of all the teams at school. They come in packs, often found in the student union, they are in top shape due to the fact their lectures take place in the gym. They&rsquo;re up for anything, always game for a night out and often make a joke at your expense. They probably end up being a P.E teacher or a Rugby Coach - making kids run around in the cold for their love of sport.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">Medicine</span><br /> <br /> <iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="270" src="https://giphy.com/embed/3o85xpxuULZ1Svqizu" width="100%"></iframe> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/chuber-arthur-library-card-3o85xpxuULZ1Svqizu">via GIPHY</a></p> <br /> Medics are exceptionally good drinkers, probably the best at Uni. Maybe it&rsquo;s because they know exactly how much their limit is. Frankly, it&rsquo;s impressive by how much they can drink whilst putting in triple the hours at Uni than anyone else. You don&rsquo;t need to ask what course they study, because they&rsquo;ve probably already told you. You never see them at home and when you text to see where they are &ldquo;I&rsquo;m at the library, doing an all-nighter&rdquo;.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">Psychology</span><br /> <br /> <iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="222" src="https://giphy.com/embed/XdPH4uR2f0WOc" width="100%"></iframe> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/judging-eyes-XdPH4uR2f0WOc">via GIPHY</a></p> Psychology students thought they&rsquo;d go to Uni and end up answering those lifelong questions like &lsquo;is the Earth flat?&rsquo;, but instead they ended up having to convince their mates to do endless questionnaires every week. They&rsquo;re ready to offer advice at any opportunity and often take a back seat in conversations, psychoanalysing everyone else and always end up judging all your bad habits. They often end up doing something completely irrelevant to their degree after Uni and still haven&#39;t figured out the answers to some of those oh so important questions.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">English Literature</span><br /> <br /> <span style="display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); cursor: text; font-family: sans-serif,Arial,Verdana,&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 20.8px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="269" src="https://giphy.com/embed/On6eOiSKLpPyg" width="100%"></iframe></span> <p><span style="display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); cursor: text; font-family: sans-serif,Arial,Verdana,&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 20.8px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/keeping-up-with-the-kardashians-kardashian-On6eOiSKLpPyg">via GIPHY</a></span></p> Everyone thinks English Literature students lay around spending all day reading, when in reality they lay around doing pretty much nothing. They blow their student loan buying all the books they could ever need, putting them to good use on Instagram, posting their afternoon in the local coffee shop with their latte, book and abstract caption. English students are in a world of their own, tweeting Shakespeare, going out 3 times a week and still managing to bag a 2:1.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">Business studies</span> <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:56%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/1oHmASyOkABYmqecGn" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/mrw-spot-powerpoint-1oHmASyOkABYmqecGn">via GIPHY</a></p> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/office-gif-us-powerpoint-gifs-94iS62lx8CRQA">via GIPHY</a></p> <p>Business studies students love their course, they love group work and they love using PowerPoint to explain and present absolutely anything. They know all the special effects, making text appear one word at a time to draw out their presentation and maximise your misery. They never appear stressed with their work, often leaving it to the last minute and still acing any presentation or exam. They tend to have a rather laid back approach to Uni and their love for business actually seems to disappear after Uni as they&rsquo;re still figuring out what they actually want to do in life.</p> </div> <div><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size:24px;">Fashion</span><br /> <br /> <span style="display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); cursor: text; font-family: sans-serif,Arial,Verdana,&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 20.8px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="269" src="https://giphy.com/embed/408Avuq2oshQIEKml0" width="100%"></iframe></span> <p><span style="display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); cursor: text; font-family: sans-serif,Arial,Verdana,&quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 20.8px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/rupaulsdragrace-episode-1-rupauls-drag-race-408Avuq2oshQIEKml0">via GIPHY</a></span></p> Fashion students are very defensive about their degree, complaining that people don&rsquo;t take them serious enough and their degree is more challenging than most. They&rsquo;ve seen one too many episodes of Project Runway or Ugly Betty and think they&rsquo;re the next big thing. You actually never see fashion students in lectures, but you&rsquo;ll see them on campus setting the bar in their well-dressed outfit, paid for by their student loan of course. But when they are attending Uni, you&rsquo;ll often see this evidenced on their Insta story, with a filter, a latte and a cute notebook.

You bond off your favourite crayon, jumping in puddles and sharing your Quavers. Making friends in adulthood is a whole other ball game.<br /> It&rsquo;s true what they say, your uni friends will be friends for life, but forming them initial bonds can take some work.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/student2.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Your flat mates</strong><br /> In first year, you don&rsquo;t get to pick who you live with so whether you like or not, you are stuck with them. The best thing you can do is make an effort to get to know all the people in your flat. Some of you might have friends of friends, common interests or be from the same area &ndash; all perfect starting points for long lasting friendships. Make people brews, share the load of the housework and check in on your neighbour, you never know where it might take you.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Your peers</strong><br /> The good thing about the people on your course is you already have one big thing in common. Having somebody to sit with through lectures and seminars can be priceless later down the line when the work builds up, group work begins and you could use a helping hand. Unlike your flat mates, you will be with your course mates for the next three years, so form relationships early on for a more enjoyable experience. Arrange a library date, grab a coffee between lectures or just make an effort with the one who forgets their pen every week, you won&rsquo;t regret it. &nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/Student1.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Out and about</strong><br /> The best thing about uni is everyone either is or has at some point been in your position. Everyone starts uni as a newbie, the majority of people attend uni alone and the majority are in a new city. Everyone wants to make friends, but not everyone has it in them to spark up that first convo. If you see somebody sat alone at lunch, ask to join them. If somebody is looking a little lost, ask can you help. Found someone who has been separated from their mates on a night out? Take them under your wing. A friendship for life can start anywhere at any time, you just have to jump at the opportunities.

How To Make Your Student Loan Stretch https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/how-to-make-your-student-loan-stretch/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/how-to-make-your-student-loan-stretch/#comments Fri, 06 Sep 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/how-to-make-your-student-loan-stretch/ We all know the best text you can ever receive is the one from Student Finance to say your loan is about to drop. The thought of having a stack of money dropped into your account suddenly turns you into a baller and you start planning round the world trips and what colour your Ferrari&rsquo;s going to be.<br /> <br /> But the minute it drops you&rsquo;re brought crashing down to earth when you realise that you&rsquo;ve got to make this money stretch while making sure you&rsquo;re fed, have somewhere to sleep and still maintain a social life. The thought can be a bit daunting but it isn&rsquo;t as bad as it seems.<br /> <br /> We&rsquo;ve put together a couple of tips that will help you manage your money better at uni, but we probably wouldn&rsquo;t put a deposit down on a Ferrari just yet.<br /> <br /> <strong>1. Budget, budget, budget!</strong><br /> <br /> We know it&rsquo;s boring but sometimes sitting down and actually writing down how much money you have for the month can really help. Split your money up into rent, bills, food and transport to make sure you&rsquo;re covering the important stuff and can keep yourself alive. Make sure you keep this money separate so you&rsquo;re not tempted to use your rent money for a night out then any money left over you can use to treat yourself without feeling guilty.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:56%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/JpG2A9P3dPHXaTYrwu" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/money-make-it-rain-JpG2A9P3dPHXaTYrwu">via GIPHY</a><br /> &nbsp;</p> <strong>2. Food</strong><br /> <br /> Don&rsquo;t forget there are loads of ways you can keep your food bill down, including bulk buying, scouting supermarkets for the best deals and planning your meals day to day. Batch cook your favourite meals and freeze them for a healthier and cheaper ready meal.<br /> <br /> If you get on with your housemates you could even cook in bulk with them and share the bill, this also means you won&rsquo;t have to cook every day. If you do fancy a takeaway it&rsquo;s not the end of the world but scout around for the best deals. Make sure you keep hold of all of those leaflets you gathered at the freshers fair which will have some unreal food discounts on.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:56%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/sCunacryU9Qis" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/mrw-beer-javert-sCunacryU9Qis">via GIPHY</a></p> <strong>3. Shop smart</strong><br /> <br /> Just because you&rsquo;re on a budget doesn&rsquo;t mean you can&rsquo;t treat yourself to some new sneaks? At Footasylum we have the latest trainers for the best price AND you lucky students can get yourselves discount through UNiDAYS! Don&rsquo;t say we don&rsquo;t look after you lot.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:41%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/3o7TKxaBEcI0eajJsY" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/focusworld-kicks-film-movie-3o7TKxaBEcI0eajJsY">via GIPHY</a></p> <strong>4. Student Nights</strong><br /> <br /> Just because you&rsquo;re on a budget it doesn&rsquo;t mean you can&rsquo;t have a social life. Find your local student nights at the pub, club and even some restaurants to enjoy cheap drinks and cheap food. Often hosted during the week (perfect for those uni free days) student nights are the perfect way to be social without blowing your whole student loan.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:75%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/ujTVMASREzuRbH6zy5" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/126bpm-dancingatclub-ujTVMASREzuRbH6zy5">via GIPHY</a></p> <strong>5. Transport</strong><br /> <br /> The main reason you&rsquo;re receiving a student loan is that you go to uni so you need to be able to actually get there. If you&rsquo;re living on campus, chances are you&rsquo;ll be able to walk to lectures which will save you money while also keeping you fit. If you live a bit further out opt for a bus rather than a taxi or if you&rsquo;re going to be getting the train daily, it&rsquo;s worth investing in a 16- 25 railcard.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:56%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/3o6nULo6qAICz9uVdS" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/japan-commercials-commute-3o6nULo6qAICz9uVdS">via GIPHY</a></p> Meet the Team: Rachel Harrison https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-rachel-harrison/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-rachel-harrison/#comments Mon, 02 Sep 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-rachel-harrison/ This month we sat down with our Talent Acquisition Specialist Rachel to get the lowdown on her rather impressive trainer collection!<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/rachel.jpg" /><br /> <br /> With a whopping 500+ pairs of trainers to her name, I think we can confidently call her the Footasylum Sneaker Queen - Just look at that storage!&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/BLOG_image.jpg" /><br /> <br /> When she&#39;s not busy finding the best of the best to join the Footayslum HQ, she&#39;s at home with her sausage dog Pablo.&nbsp; The Uni Halls Survival Guide https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-uni-halls-survival-guide/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-uni-halls-survival-guide/#comments Thu, 29 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-uni-halls-survival-guide/ Moving into halls can be a daunting experience for even the most independent student, so we&rsquo;ve pulled together our top 5 tips for surviving your first few weeks in halls.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Be social</strong><br /> Don&rsquo;t keep yourself locked away in your bedroom when all your new flat mates are in the kitchen socialising. Get yourself out there, make them a brew, find out what their studying and have a good old fashion conversation. You have to live with these people, so make an effort and get involved with social events both in and out of halls.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/MG_44621-1024x682.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Open your windows</strong><br /> Unfortunately, uni halls are not known for their pleasant odours and cleanliness. If you do one thing today, open your bedroom and kitchen windows. Nobody needs to be breathing in stale Chinese, mouldy bread and the remains of that tactical chunder&hellip; yep, we&rsquo;ve all been there. Air it out and your head, lungs and roommates will thank you later.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Do your bit</strong><br /> Don&rsquo;t be that person that leaves dirty pots in the sink and wet towels in the communal bathroom. Living in halls is your first step into adult-hood, meaning you and only you are responsible for your mess. Keep it tidy and keep people on your side, be the messy one in the flat and you&rsquo;ll quickly be making enemies.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/University-Room-Lights-650x357.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Customise your room</strong><br /> Student rooms are basic, there&rsquo;s no denying it, but that doesn&rsquo;t mean you can&rsquo;t add your own touch. White blu-tack is your best friend this semester and is a simple mess free way to brighten up your digs. Pop up some pictures of friends and family from back home, hang some fairy lights and treat yourself to some new bedding and it&rsquo;ll instantly feel homelier.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>Keep your door open</strong><br /> This might seem a bit weird at first, but leaving your bedroom door open when you&rsquo;re just chilling in your room, doing some work or having a tidy up will make a massive difference to how you are perceived. It shows you are welcoming, approachable and open to speaking to people. Even if it&rsquo;s a simple &lsquo;want a brew?&rsquo; as somebody walks past, in uni life that can be the start of a lifelong friendship. Some of the best nights, chats and friendships will stem from the open door policy.<br /> &nbsp; Trend Spotter: Utility Trend https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/trend-spotter-utility-trend/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/trend-spotter-utility-trend/#comments Wed, 21 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/trend-spotter-utility-trend/ Ease up!

The trend is set to take over the streets this Autumn so we want to make sure you&rsquo;re prepared.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="540" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay5d5d4fc5c21200.90315617&amp;base_url=https://www.linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="810"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay5d5d4fc5c21200.90315617'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '810px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> <br /> Want an easy way to add some utilitarian elements to your look? A utility vest is the best way. Throw on to finish off your streetwear look, whether it&rsquo;s over a tracksuit or jeans the utility vest is the perfect Autumn layer.<br /> <br /> The classic black Solomon utility vest from <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/glorious-gangsta/">Glorious Gangsta</a> is the epitome of the utility trend. With multiple oversized pockets and GG branding to the chest, we&rsquo;re getting some seriously strong utility vibes from this piece. Layer over a <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/mens/mens-clothing/hooded-tops/">hoodie</a> and you&rsquo;ve got your Autumn look sorted. Alternatively, the orange Fisherman Vest from <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/sixth-june/">Sixth June</a> is the ultimate festival piece (festie season isn&rsquo;t over just yet) or the Sixth June Tech Vest takes modern utility to another level.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="540" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay5d5d5028687ab1.32512081&amp;base_url=https://www.linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="810"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay5d5d5028687ab1.32512081'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '810px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> <br /> If you&rsquo;re not a fan of layering up, there are other ways to tap into the utility trend without going full-on commander. A pair of <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/mens/mens-clothing/jog-track-pants/">bottoms</a> with oversized pockets can go a long way (they&rsquo;re pretty handy too).<br /> <br /> With utilitarian bottoms from Nike, Under Armour and Glorious Gangsta you can&rsquo;t go wrong. The Galis Jogger and <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/under-armour/">Under Armour</a> Woven Pants are the perfect way to pull off the trend while keeping it pretty casual. For when the weather heats up the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/nike-brand-page/">Nike</a> Cargo Shorts will look sick on the streets. Pair with a plain <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/mens/mens-clothing/tshirts/">tee</a> to finish off your look.

The Five People You'll Meet In The Library This Semester https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-five-people-youll-meet-in-the-library-this-semester-/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-five-people-youll-meet-in-the-library-this-semester-/#comments Thu, 15 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/the-five-people-youll-meet-in-the-library-this-semester-/ As you go through uni you start to realise that the library isn&#39;t always used to study and you&#39;ll also meet a good share of characters in there. To help you prepare we&#39;ve identified five types of people you&#39;re probably going to meet in the library.<br /> <br /> <strong>The dedicated student</strong><br /> Arguably something all students should be, but some are definitely more at home in the library than others. The dedicated student is the one who spends their spare time between lectures at the library, soaking up them valuable hours for revision, extra learning and getting ahead. Armed with books and a packed lunch, they&rsquo;ll be set up in the quiet area ready to kill a few hours.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/notes-macbook-study-conference.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>The last minute Nelly</strong><br /> You can be the most organised person on the planet with all the best intentions, but during your uni stint, there&rsquo;s no doubt you&rsquo;ll end up doing a last minute job. Last minute Nelly will be in full panic mode; causing a scene over lost pages, complex citations, a broken connection and generally tearing their hair out. They&rsquo;ll be hammering the keyboard, music blaring and heavy sighing &ndash; Steer clear!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>The night owl</strong><br /> Some of us just function better at night, that&rsquo;s a fact. If you&rsquo;re ever in the all-night category (you will be, trust me), you&rsquo;ll be able to tell the difference between a natural night owl and somebody scrambling 2,000 words together an hour before submission. The night owl will be cool, calm and collected, armed with snacks, headphones and a can of monster to see them through.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/pexels-photo-545057.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>The &lsquo;how did you even get into uni&rsquo; student</strong><br /> You know the one. They can&rsquo;t work the wifi, they&rsquo;ve created a jam in the printer and their library fines are through the roof. Who gave this person a place and what on earth are they studying?! Every library has one, maybe more than one, actually, and they will make themselves known quite early on. Avoid at all costs.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <br /> <strong>The coffee fuelled scatter brain</strong><br /> A combination of the all-nighter and the last minuter, the coffee fiend can be there at all hours. The difference is, this is through choice. They thrive off the coffee buzz and the adrenaline of flitting around the library like they mean business, always armed with a Costa cup. You can spot them by their wide eyes, lingering smell of black coffee and usually looking a little unkempt as coffee comes before personal hygiene. obvs.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp; Brand Focus: Guess https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/brand-focus-guess/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/brand-focus-guess/#comments Tue, 13 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/brand-focus-guess/ Guess has been creating fresh streetwear since 1981 and are one of the OG&#39;s in the game.<br /> <br /> Founded by the four Marciano brothers, <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/guess/">Guess</a> has grown into one of the most recognised clothing brands in the world.<br /> <br /> Their red triangle logo has stuck with them over the years and is just as bold now as it was in the 80s.<br /> <br /> After moving to America from France in 1977, the four brothers took the fashion world by storm. The brand were pioneers of denim with classic stonewashed colourways and zips up each ankle and created the slim jean we all wear on the streets today.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="540" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay5d52c1aaba6d91.37050021&amp;base_url=https://linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="820"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay5d52c1aaba6d91.37050021'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '820px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> Fast forward to 2019, and Guess are still huge players in the men&#39;s, women&#39;s and kids&#39; clothing game, creating statement tees for every occasion.<br /> <br /> With celebrity fans like ASAP Rocky it&#39;s no surprise that Guess is the go-to brand for a cool casual look, especially on the party isle of Ibiza, and Guess are giving you the chance to win an epic closing party weekend getaway in Ibiza.

Hacks For Staying Awake In Your 9am https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/hacks-for-staying-awake-in-your-9am/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/hacks-for-staying-awake-in-your-9am/#comments Wed, 07 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/hacks-for-staying-awake-in-your-9am/ Let&rsquo;s be honest a 9am lecture is nobody&rsquo;s favourite activity. The lecturer probably doesn&rsquo;t even enjoy it. If you do manage to drag yourself out of bed, especially if you were out the night before, then we salute you.<br /> <br /> Unfortunately, no amount of coffee will help you stay awake during your three-hour lecture, but there are a few things you can do which might stop you from drifting off while the lecturer reads off a PowerPoint for three hours.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:56%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/xT8qBvH1pAhtfSx52U" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/baby-sleepy-face-first-xT8qBvH1pAhtfSx52U">via GIPHY</a></p> <strong>1. Get a balanced breakfast </strong><br /> <br /> We&rsquo;ve all been told since we were young that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it&rsquo;s not wrong. A balanced breakfast containing wholesome carbs, protein and healthy fats will give you the energy you need to stay awake and alert. If you&rsquo;re struggling for ideas, you could try unsweetened oatmeal with nuts and fruit instead of a piece of toast on the bus. If you struggle for time in the morning make a smoothie with nuts, tofu, coconut butter and avocado the night before, ready for you to grab in the morning.<br /> <br /> <strong>2.&nbsp;Actually Take Notes</strong><br /> <br /> This will keep you busy and give you something to focus on rather than just staring at the walls. Writing notes engages your brain and makes you pay attention to what your lecturer is actually trying to tell you. To keep yourself even more alert you could try writing notes for different areas in various ink colours so you&rsquo;re fully engaged.<br /> <br /> <strong>3.&nbsp;Cold Water</strong><br /> <br /> Whether you gulp it or head to the toilets to splash it on your face, cold water is going to be your new best friend. Staying hydrated is key to staying awake, dehydration can lead to fatigue as it impacts the flow of oxygen to the brain. Add some ice cubes to your water to make sure it stays nice and cool the whole time.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="width:100%;height:0;padding-bottom:57%;position:relative;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="giphy-embed" frameborder="0" height="100%" src="https://giphy.com/embed/3ov9jW5LkqPw06WDCw" style="position:absolute" width="100%"></iframe></div> <p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/fallontonight-lol-jimmyfallon-classicfall-3ov9jW5LkqPw06WDCw">via GIPHY</a></p> <br /> <strong>4. Eat a Light Snack </strong><br /> <br /> Now we&rsquo;re not telling you to bring a full buffet into the hall with you but taking in a small snack will help perk you up when your glucose levels start to drop. Try and avoid anything too noisy as no one like being next to someone eating a packet of crisps at 9am but carrots with hummus, yoghurt with almonds and apple with peanut butter are the perfect options as the healthy fats and protein will help tide you over.<br /> <br /> <strong>5.&nbsp;Remember how much you&rsquo;re paying </strong><br /> <br /> If any of these tips don&rsquo;t work, we&rsquo;re pretty sure this one will.

Perfect for PE and the classroom, these trainers are a great alternative to the traditional school shoe.<br /> &nbsp; Launch: Jordan Mars 270 'Green Glow' & 'Fire Red' https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-jordan-mars-270-green-glow-fire-red/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-jordan-mars-270-green-glow-fire-red/#comments Fri, 02 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-jordan-mars-270-green-glow-fire-red/ The Jumpman is back again with its latest release. Here at Footasylum, we are the kings of Jordan launches and this weekend is no different. Launching at 8am Saturday 3rd August is the Jordan Mars 270 in two on-point colourways that will have you turning heads.<br /> <br /> If you&#39;re a sneakerhead and a huge fan of Jordans and Nike these sneaks are for you. The Jordan Mars 270 takes inspiration from the <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/jordan/jordan-1/?category_list_brands=mens">Air Jordan 1</a>, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 5, Air Jordan 6, and Nike&rsquo;s <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/nike/nike-air-max-270/?category_list_brands=mens">Air Max 270</a>- what&#39;s not to like. It&#39;s all of your all-time favourite sneaks rolled into one fresh looking pair of kicks.<br /> <br /> It seems that Spike Lee&#39;s legacy with the Jordan brand, born after he created the Air Jordan-loving character Mars Blackmon for 1986 film She&rsquo;s Gotta Have It, is being continued by his son. The Jordan Mars 270 has been designed by Jackson Lewis Lee and features a 270 air max unit in the heel and has a futuristic appearance which will elevate your look. Synthetic leather is combined with a firmer Phylon midsole, to finish off the glimpse into the future of footwear.<br /> &nbsp; <div style="margin:0px; padding:0px; flex: 1;"><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="540" src="https://assets.linklay.com/embed_cloud.html?uuid_hash=linklay5d445babef04d3.34253505&amp;base_url=https://linklay.com/app/" style="width: 100%; overflow:hidden; margin-top:-0px;" width="810"></iframe><script src="https://assets.linklay.com/responsive.js" onerror="javascript:var el = this.parentElement; el.innerHTML = ''; var imgEl = document.createElement( 'img' ); imgEl.src = 'https://images.linklay.com/linklay5d445babef04d3.34253505'; imgEl.style.width = '100%'; imgEl.style.maxWidth = '810px'; el.appendChild( imgEl );" ></script></div> <br /> At Footasylum, we&#39;ve got two colourways of the 270 Mars which will look sick whatever the occasion. If you&#39;re looking for an everyday all-white sneak then the Jordan 270 Mars in Fire Red is for you. The mainly white sneak features fire red accents. Taking inspiration from the Jordan 5 the upper of the sneak features white leather, the midsole is split between black and red all finished off by an icy translucent blue outsole.<br /> <br /> For a more fun sneak, the Green Glow colourway has arrived. Don&#39;t let the all-black nubuck upper fool you- this is a sneak with personality. Featuring luminous green accents and reflective silver detailing, the silhouette sits on top of a glow in the dark sole- something we never knew we needed in a sneak. If you&#39;re looking for a new pair of trainers that will turn heads whether the lights are on or off we&#39;ve found them.<br /> <br /> Both colourways will be available <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/jordan/">online</a> from 8am Saturday morning and from the following stores: <ul> <li>Manchester</li> <li>Birmingham Bullring</li> <li>Glasgow Argyle Street</li> <li>Lakeside</li> <li>Bluewater</li> <li>Stratford</li> <li>Croydon</li> <li>Kingston</li> <li>Nottingham Clumber Street</li> <li>Trafford Mega</li> <li>Bristol</li> <li>Bromley</li> <li>Lewisham</li> <li>Meadowhall</li> <li>Brighton</li> <li>Derby</li> <li>Southampton</li> <li>Fosse Park</li> <li>White City</li> </ul> Meet the Team: Jatin Mistry https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-jatin-mistry-/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-jatin-mistry-/#comments Thu, 01 Aug 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/meet-the-team-jatin-mistry-/ This month we caught up with the office&#39;s only Yorkshire man and long standing graphic designer, Jatin.

NSG https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/adidas-originals-yung-1-feat-nsg/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/adidas-originals-yung-1-feat-nsg/#comments Mon, 15 Jul 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/adidas-originals-yung-1-feat-nsg/ The adidas Originals Yung 1 embodies a youthful energy. It&rsquo;s multi-layered, cushioned and dynamic design moves to the energetic wearer. Someone who is always on their feet, but always wants to look good doing so. It came as no surprise that the face of Footasylum&rsquo;s Yung 1 campaign would be the most buoyant music artists on the scene: NSG.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Zipping through the gargantuan warehouse which once housed an assortment of aircrafts, NSG&rsquo;s Kruddz rode fast on a mini motorbike trying to avoid anyone who stood in his way. The motorbike isn&rsquo;t the only fun prop in use today. Bouncy balls, space hoppers, dollar bills and confetti canons were on standby. Everything screamed fun at the set. After gathering the boys during a much-needed breather, we caught up on a summer of festivals, their massive social media presence and building the foundations of their musical career.<br /> <br /> <img alt="yung1" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2019/NSG/Yung1_NSG5799_1080px%5B1%5D.jpg" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>FA:</strong> We are here on an airfield in Bicester on a pretty fun set. Are you excited to be here?<br /> <br /> <strong>Mojo-NSG:</strong> We are so excited to be here. We are the most fun people you will ever meet.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> We&rsquo;re shooting the Yung 1 and, you guys are always wearing the freshest creps on stage. Who has the most sneakers out of all of you?<br /> <br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG</strong>: I don&rsquo;t know. We all have a lot. Probably OGD, he has bare creps.<br /> <strong>OGD-NSG:</strong> Come on man, I&rsquo;ve got them all. All the grails you know. They wish they had my creps.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> This year has been quite busy for you guys. This summer you are performing at loads of festivals, you&rsquo;ve got wireless coming up this weekend. How is the festival scene for you guys compared to normal gigs?<br /> <br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:</strong> Everything. Like normal gigs, festivals, big gigs- we shut it down. The difference is like, festivals are bigger. I enjoy it more. Everyone that&rsquo;s there, they&rsquo;re off their head, having a good time. There is a video online of us going from OT to Options. It went off.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> Your online presence is massive. You always seem to dominate social media.<br /> <br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:</strong> Look look, there&rsquo;s proof. They&rsquo;re all on social media right now. They&rsquo;re glued on, they&rsquo;re active.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> How important is social media to you? Is it a big part of how you became viral?<br /> <br /> <strong>Kruddz-NSG:</strong> It&rsquo;s played a big part. In this day and age, the generation we are in, you can find anything on social media. Trump won the election with social media. He still uses social media loads. Everything is on socials, don&rsquo;t underestimate.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> You all say, your aim is to reach global domination. Would you say you are there yet? You and your sound are very recognisable now.<br /> <br /> <strong>NSG:</strong> *All at the same time* Woah far from.<br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:</strong> When we say global, we mean global global. We are just building the foundations right now. The UK isn&rsquo;t even finished yet.<br /> <strong>Dope-NSG:</strong> Literally all age groups as well. Like Michael Jackson global. We&rsquo;re not joking. I bet the dads out there know Westlife, but they don&rsquo;t know us yet.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> Supporting Drake at o2 must&rsquo;ve been a big highlight and push in your career too.<br /> <br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:</strong> o2 arena, well o3. It was lit. After performing with Drake, there were tweets after, where we were in the same sentence as Drake and J Cole. It&rsquo;s energy names right there. Just to grace that stage with those names, wow. Big up J Cole, he&rsquo;s my boy.<br /> <br /> <img alt="nsgyung1" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/2019/NSG/Yung1_NSG5536_1080px.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong>&nbsp; You guys are all high energy. Loads of fun. Lots of action all the time. Do you ever take a break?<br /> <br /> <strong>Kruddz-NSG:</strong> I don&rsquo;t take breaks no more. What&rsquo;s the point in having a break? There is no point. You&rsquo;re gonna rest when you die.<br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:&nbsp;</strong> Sometimes you have to take a break and unwind. Hibernate and sleep at night. When I&rsquo;m awake I&rsquo;m always active.<br /> <br /> <strong>FA:</strong> You always say NSG is a lifestyle, not a collective. So how does one achieve and live the NSG life.<br /> <br /> <strong>Pappi-NSG:</strong> You are living the NSG lifestyle. If you are non-stop grinding then you are living the NSG lifestyle. You work hard and don&rsquo;t wanna stop because that is your journey. Non Stop Grinding- that is NSG.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The adidas Originals Yung 1 is availible now - shop the collection right <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/page/search/?src=peups&amp;term=yung%201">here.</a>&nbsp; Launch: adidas X Danielle Cathari https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-adidas-x-danielle-cathari-/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-adidas-x-danielle-cathari-/#comments Fri, 12 Jul 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-adidas-x-danielle-cathari-/ The fourth collection from Danielle Cathari is here, bringing you all the androgynous sports luxe vibes.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/FA_WK28_CH_ADIDAS_X_DANIELLE-CATHARI_BLOG_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> The Amsterdam based designer has enhanced the instantly recognisable DNA of adidas with her latest offering, by incorporating a tonal palette with a range of 90s silhouettes, reviving the classic three stripes before our eyes.<br /> <br /> The collection of must-have apparel includes a mixture of tracksuits, blazers and shorts, all designed with an androgynous twist on classic 90s silhouettes.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Launching on 15th July, be sure to keep an eye on our <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/just-landed/new-womens/new-womens-clothing/">latest drops</a> to grab your new clothes before it&rsquo;s too late.<br /> &nbsp; Launch: Converse Renew https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-converse-renew/ https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-converse-renew/#comments Wed, 03 Jul 2019 00:00:00 GMT https://www.footasylum.com/the-lowdown/launch-converse-renew/ In the same week that Glastonbury revealed their plastic-free policy saved 1 million plastic bottles from going to landfill and Sir David Attenborough managed to make thousands of festival goers silent while he talked about plastic usage on the Pyramid stage, we present to you the latest release from Converse- Converse Renew.<br /> <br /> If you haven&#39;t guessed from the name and topical intro, Converse&#39;s latest release rethinks waste, with each canvas pair being made from 11 recycled plastic bottles. Which is an incredible move towards creating more readily available sustainable fashion.<br /> <br /> Converse has always been one step ahead on the design front, and this new reincarnation of the classic canvas Chuck Taylor Ox and High Top is no different. Opening a new chapter, with a new sustainable era, Converse are hoping to make sustainable fashion more accessible.<br /> <br /> The Renew chapter proves how Converse are dedicated to experimenting and creating new ways for sneakerheads to be a little more environmentally friendly while still repping the freshest trends.<br /> <br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="http://www.footasylum.com/images/blog/converse.jpg" /><br /> <br /> Dropping on the 5th July, the Converse Renew Canvas features recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) created from millions of plastic bottles that are put in the bin day to day. The sneaks still have the same feel as the original chucks but their 100% recycled plastic construction means you can feel a bit better wearing them.<br /> <br /> Launching in six different colourways in a range of Ox and High Top styles for both men and women, these sneaks are perfect for summer and you can do your bit while wearing them too.<br /> <br /> Each labelled with the new Converse Renew slogan, &#39;Life is too short to waste&#39;, these sneaks are the first of many Converse renew packs planned. The brand are later planning on releasing Renew Denim, made using denim jeans that have been diverted from landfills and Renew Cotton, crafted using cotton canvas waste from the manufacturing process to create a 40 percent recycled cotton with polyester to form a new yarn.<br /> <br /> Keep an eye on our <a href="https://www.footasylum.com/brands/converse/">Converse collection</a> for the Renew drop.
