Living in Chicago, I run into all different types of people from different career paths. Chicago is most definitely home to some secret gems. One of them is the multimedia production company called HYSTK™. HYSTK™ created this video in collaboration with the Nike’s St. Alfred’s pop-up store. A nice concept and tribute to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Be sure to Follow HYSTK™ via Twitter for more great videos.

As the Shanghai World Expo continues to attract tens of thousands from all over the world to fly into one of Asia’s quintessential international hubs, labels, countries, and companies continue to roll out special items and designs to commemorate the event. Nike has created a pack of sneakers based on the Chinese Pavilion and rendered the minimal, geometric graphics onto an Air Max 90 and a Blazer Mid. Check out detailed photos of the collection which reveal colourful insoles with matching graphics for the Shanghai World Expo pack. Another interesting feature about these shoes are that they feature the Nike Grind outsoles that are made out of recycled components, so these shoes are extra green, and fall in line with the Chinese Pavilion them of “Better City, Better Life”.

Nike seems to always seems to make colourways inspired by some of the biggest movies of past and present and they didn’t skip over Avatar. Apparently these are inspired by the Na’vi characters in the movie. These were produced sometime last year and it’s rumoured that less than 5 were produced, and at the moment it doesn’t seem like they’ll see a wider release, but MentalKicks got their hands on a pair. For those interested, a size 9 is available through MentalKicks online store.
