Ahhh Pharrell Williams! This man can do no wrong can he? Well some may say yeah after those Reebok Ice Creams he released a while back, but other than that Pharrell can really do no wrong no matter the arena he's in. From music to fashion Pharrell has kept us Happy and looking like Billionaire Boys & Girls. So it was kind of right for Adidas to sign Pharrell up to collaborate and design for them. I always said Adidas is the official brand of Hip Hop. From RUN DMC to now Pharrell and Kanye West apart of the team the German sportswear company that nearly drove Nike out of business contiues to prove me right on my statement. So the duo of Adidas and Pharrell are ready to release the new Stan Smith Consortium "Soild Pack."

Cop the monochromatic trio of black, red, and blue and the rest of the year should be a wrap on the every day tip. Stan Smiths have never gone out of style, so rather than slap branding all over the pack, Pharrell and designers let them stand alone without any added embellishments. On the clothing side of things the collection comes with matching Adidas Napa leather jackets. Not real sure if they are tribute to RUN DMC and Jam Master Jay, but they sure look like it. With those leathers going for a whole stack I don't know if DMC would swing that.

The Pharrell Williams x Adidas Consortium "Solid Pack" releases September 20th at Packer Shoes and other select retailers as well as on Retail price is $150 for the Stan Smiths, and $1000 for the track jackets. Expect three more product packages to be released in October, November and December to finish off 2014.

Starting next week, Monday Nights are going to kickass! With the premiere of FOX's new Batman prequel series "GOTHAM" airing next Monday we are super excited to see if the show lives up to the hype we've reading and hearing about. So Fox decided to release a clip of the series which is shaping up to be more of a hit than the clip would suggest. In it, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) confronts Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) about their method for dealing with employees who steal from the till.

Fox has also released a some pictures from the second episode, titled “Selina Kyle,” in which a crime ring is kidnapping street kids like Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) to sell overseas. Frank Whaley guest stars, and we barely even recognized him in the picture below. Maybe he’s one of the guys selling kids to other countries. Which countries? Is one of the countries named “What”? Do they speak English in What? So many questions.

GOTHAM airs Mondays at 8/7 Central on Fox starting September 22nd.

At the end of this baseball season (which isn't that far off) Derek Jeter will be hanging up his clets and pinstripe jersey. The New York Yankees also will no longer allow any play to wear a single digit number. With that being said that shows just how great of a player Jeter is. The Jordan Brand already had us in our feelings with their "RE2PECT" campaign commercial, but like most I was more interested in what the Jordan Brand would do shoe and apparel wise to pay homage to Captain who just so happens to be the longest tenured athlete signed to the Jordan Brand. So for one last time the Jordan Brand and Jeter bless us with the "Jordan Jeter Collection."

For an OG like Jeter you have to go with one of the best pair of Jordan ever made. Yankee Blue and the signature pinstripes is all you need for these Air Jordan 1. The Flight Flex Trainers brings some new school to the collection in a shoe that looks like an aggressive Nike Roshe. Fans definitely get an opportunity to rep the Yanks and Jeter both in the gym and in casual settings in a fitting tribute to the legend.

The Jordan Jeter Collection releases September 20th. The Air Jordan 1 Retro Jeter will retail for $140 and the Flight Flexes for $120.
