Clarks Just Released Limited-Edition Wallabees, but There’s Only Once Place You Can Get Them

FCC Ends Regulations Protecting Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission voted today to roll back Obama-era restrictions on broadband internet access, often referred to as net neutrality.
In a statement, the Republican-led FCC said it is “returning to the traditional light-touch framework that was in place until 2015,” while also adopting “robust transparency requirements that will empower consumers, as well as facilitate effective government oversight of broadband providers’ conduct.”
The decision has so far been met with widespread condemnation among politicians, internet users and digital companies alike.

This is an egregious attack on our democracy. The end of #NetNeutrality protections means that the internet will be for sale to the highest bidder. When our democratic institutions are already in peril, we must do everything we can to stop this decision from taking effect. https://t.co/8GGrJFMdrU
— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) December 14, 2017

This is how we overturn the @FCC’s awful decision to repeal #NetNeutrality, friends. Thank you, Senator, for your leadership. Time to urge all our Senators and Representatives to support this resolution and restore a free and open Internet. https://t.co/66Hg8KC7Fl

We’re disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement. This is the beginning of a longer

This Unreleased Nike Sneaker Combines Two of the Brand’s Most Popular Air Max Shoes

Two of Nike’s most formative Air Max sneakers are set to combine in the near future with the introduction of an Air Max 97/Air VaporMax hybrid.
Newly surfaced images show the first-of-its-kind look in a pearly white finish with dark red logos and white mesh underlays. The Air Max 97’s distinctive reflective stripes are also included, but the upper is where similarities to the retro look end.
Down below, the 1997 model’s original foam and full-length Air Max cushioning is replace with Nike’s modern VaporMax midsole. Like the Air Max 97’s oft-seen two-toned outsole, the new sneaker includes a mix of black and clear rubber underneath its fully visible Air sole.
Nike Air Max 97 VaporMax lateral.
“Without any midsole or sockliner, you get to feel the Air in a whole new way,” Zachary Elder, cushioning innovation designer at Nike, said of the Air VaporMax. “As you step down, each lug gets pushed into the Air unit, ramping up the pressure. As you step off, the pressure releases, creating that springy bounce.”
There is currently no confirmed release date for the Air Max 97/Air VaporMax sneaker, but these product images suggest that the shoes will be released on Nike’s e-commerce site soon.

Ariana Grande Embraced the No-Pants Trend in Nude Stompers & a Fur Coat

Thigh high boots are undoubtedly Ariana Grande’s go-to shoes. The singer proved how much she loves the statement footwear on Tuesday with yet another stylish look that will instantly inspire you.
On Instagram, Grande went pantless and turned a shiny fur coat into a dress — which she paired with the ultimate nude thigh-grazing pointed boots. The sleek shoes made her outfit and immediately became the focal point of her attire. Tony Bianco makes a stretchy stiletto boot option in a neutral hue that’s priced at $189.95 and won’t break the bank.
Though not wearing pants during the winter season may not be the best idea, the tight fit and sock-like quality of Grande’s heeled boots actually make them perfect for the cold weather.
If you’re thinking of foregoing tights or leggings with a dress for an upcoming holiday celebration, we recommend rocking thigh-highs like the star, instead.
The elongated shoes cover most of your leg and will keep you warmer than you think. While going for the standard all-black may be your initial thought, multiple celebrities have proven that nude is the way to go. The neutral hue goes with everything, including pops of color, so it’s without a doubt a closet staple

Li & Fung Ltd. has announced it will simplify its business model through a $1.1. billion divestment.
According to a company spokesperson, Hony Capital and the Fung Group are expected to acquire three of Li & Fung’s product verticals: furniture, sweaters and beauty. Subject to the approval of independent shareholders, the transaction is anticipated to close in the first half of next year.

These Technology Trends Will Change Retail in 2018

Stefan Weitz, EVP of technology services at Radial, an omnichannel commerce technologies and operations company, shared the trends he expects will have major effects on retail in the new year.
What are your top predictions for technology in 2018?
“Inventory optimization will become a priority. With consumer expectations continuing to grow, retailers will be more deliberate and precise with their delivery management. They will look for technology that allows them to reduce [excess inventory] through precision forecasts and automated planning.
Retailers will develop a balanced, optimized marketplace strategy. Taking a more strategic approach to marketplaces, retailers will leverage the channel as a gateway to attain customers and strike a better balance with brand recognition and direct sales.
Retail fraud rates will continue to grow. Cyber-criminals will target businesses with increasingly sophisticated strategies — and retailers will respond with greater measures of protection, utilizing machine learning, velocity engines and biometrics.”
What will be the biggest tech disruptor for the retail industry next year?
“In order to achieve the agility necessary to remain a competitive partner of retailers and keep up with the growing expectations set by Amazon, we’ll see digitalization play a major role for all stakeholders in the retail supply chain. Investments in digital tools will start

Jessica Alba traded in her favorite go-to Vince platform slip-on sneakers on Monday in favor of crystal-embellished Gucci sneakers.
For some low-key grocery shopping with husband Cash Warren — who she is expecting her third child with — the actress and Honest Company founder sported a casual outfit consisting of a black tank top paired with a red and black checkered flannel shirt overtop and black sweatpants.
Accessorizing, the mom of two added a small black leather Tod’s top cap backpack —which is currently 20 percent off at Farfetch — large hoop earrings and black frames to complete her look.

The white leather Gucci Ace sneakers feature a 1.5-inch crystalized platform sole from creative director Alessandro Michele, and effortlessly amped up the “Sin City” actresses’ casual look for running errands.
Retailing for a cool $1,250, the shoe is a bit of splurge item, but if you’ve been looking for a pair of eye-catching statement kicks to add to your wardrobe, you simply can’t go wrong with this pair from Gucci.
This outing comes on the heels of the 36-year-old’s star-studded baby shower, held at Ladurée in Beverly Hills on Saturday, where celebs like Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe and more were on hand to help celebrate the

Ivanka Trump Kicks Off Hanukkah in Sleek Cocktail Dress With Jimmy Choo Thigh-High Boots

Following the White House’s Hanukkah Reception last week, Ivanka Trump celebrated the official first day of the Jewish holiday last night with husband Jared Kushner and her three children, Arabella, 6, Joseph, 3, and Theodore, 1.
For the occasion, the 36-year-old advisor to the President Donald Trump, her father, wore a shoulder-baring modified David Koma fall ’17 navy wool dress paired with Jimmy Choo’s sleek black suede stretchy over-the-knee Turner boots. The lifestyle brand entrepreneur completed the look with dangling beaded statement earrings.
Meanwhile, Kushner’s dapper gray suit with a navy tie and black shoes complemented his wife’s style for the evening.

Despite the cold weather, the former runway model was spotted heading out with her husband without a coat after posing with their children for a heartwarming picture in front of a menorah — which she posted on Instagram and Twitter with the caption, “Happy Chanukah!”
While without a jacket, the first daughter did remember to bring along her $200 black leather Ivanka Trump Collection Tribeca Box satchel bag for the night.

Melania Trump Does Nude-on-Nude Look in Comfy Slouch Boots to Hand Out Christmas Presents

‘Tis the season for boots — just leave it to the first lady to prove that a pair of no-fuss stompers is the best kind of style statement for making spirits bright.
Earlier today Melania Trump cut a chic figure when she feted children of military families at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., during a Toys For Tots event.
Melania Trump wears a green Prada coat and nude boots.
The former model arrived in a festive green double-breasted coat by Prada ($2,480) with taupe skinny jeans and a pair of nude calf-high boots.
The footwear featured a sleek almond toe and a slouch-style fit that helped to break up the clean lines from her trousers and coat. Chunky block heels, around 4 inches, made the stompers an apt choice for the time spent on her feet.
Though the first lady’s affection for Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin pumps is well known, the new shoe style she debuted resembled luxury label Gianvito Rossi’s Laura leather knee boots ($1,625).

In a mix of high and low fashion, Hadid wore a pair of shiny white Air Jordan 13 Retro sneakers and a silver Hermès Birkin bag to a basketball match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Ronnie Fieg Teases a Kith Collection With NBA Star LeBron James

Something from Kith founder and CEO Ronnie Fieg and basketball star LeBron James is coming soon.
Throughout the week, Fieg has taken to social media to tease a “Long Live the King” collection with the NBA’s best player. But today, the news of the pending line was fueled even further by Fieg, who shared a letter he wrote to James on Kith letterhead via Instagram and Twitter.
“With today being one of the most divisive times in history, it’s important that we recognize who our role models are and appreciate them while we still can,” Fieg wrote.
The Kith leader concluded the letter with a bold proclamation: “You’re not the king by birthright. You’re the king we chose.”

Although it’s clear that a new collection with James is in the works, it’s unclear what will be featured in it. Aside from a photo of Fieg and James, a lion logo wearing a crown with “RF” and “Kith” branding and the letter, no info on product has been shared via social media.
However, Fieg and Kith dropped some hints of what’s to come online through a journal on the retailer’s website, boasting several images of products, inspiration shots and a glimpse of the Kith design team at

Allbirds Sues Steve Madden: ‘A Multibillion-Dollar Business Has Taken a Stab at Our Mission, & It Felt Wrong’

Sustainable-footwear brand Allbirds Inc. is taking fashion footwear maker Steven Madden Ltd. to court.
In a suit filed in the California Northern District Court on Tuesday, Allbirds accuses Steve Madden of copying the design of its signature wool lace-up sneaker — a product it introduced in 2015 — to create the Steven “women’s traveller sneakers,” which landed this year.
In its complaint — for trade dress infringement and unfair competition — Allbirds further alleges that in the summer of 2017, “a high-level executive for Steve Madden” contacted Allbirds and made inquiries about the brand.” Allbirds claims Madden knocked off its design shortly thereafter.
The Allbirds Wool Runner design.
An image of the allegedly infringing Steve Madden women’s sneaker.
Direct-to-consumer brand Allbirds officially launched in 2016 and, after gaining a cultlike following, the company opened physical outposts in California and New York. (Before the official launch, Allbirds had previously operated a kickstarted campaign in 2014.) Despite offering just two styles for men and women, Allbirds is estimated to have raked in millions of dollars in sales in a short time.
