Nike Running #MakeItCount Campaign – Recap

Nike make it count 5 Nike Running #MakeItCount Campaign   Recap
With a New Year’s resolution to be more active, the Highsnobiety and Highsnobette teams joined Nike’s global running movement to #MakeItCount. Highly motivated and equipped with the latest running gear from Nike, our teams met regularly for morning runs in the park and continued our resolution in Milan, Pitti Uomo, and Paris Fashion Week. With freezing cold temperatures in Berlin and a constant darkness outside, it was not always easy to find the motivation to stick with our goals. Fortunately, having teammates kept our spirits up when temperatures were low and our goal of running 12.5km a week was successfully met.

After four weeks, a few people from the team are happy that it’s over, but most of us – and that’s what counts – find ourselves living a more active and confident lifestyle that we plan to continue well into the new year.

Over the course of the last month, both Highsnobiety and Highsnobette followers on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter kept up to date on the progress of our runs. For our final run we decided to do something a little bit more special. Watch the interactive video and check out our recap on the next page.

Nike Running 2013 We Will #MakeItCount Campaign

Make it.count 3 Nike Running 2013 We Will #MakeItCount Campaign
For 2013 Nike continues to to reinvent the sport by setting up the next round of the #MakeItCount campaign that was first launched in 2012. Highly motivated and with a full batch of team spirit Highsnobiety and Highsnobette teams decided to participate and will #MakeItCount too. Instead of making specific global goals, we decided to set ourselves the goal of running 50 kilometers in January 2013. The most interesting aspect for us was Nike’s new approach to the sport: Running 5km a week is still better than not running at all. Damn right! So, with the ambition to quit our computers for at least 1 hour per week, we are highly motivated to put on our running shoes and join the movement. Of course we will also share the progress of our running through our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. With the aid of the Nike + Running App we will be able to measure the progress and compare our personal performances with all other participants worldwide.

And just by the way: Nike is also asking everybody to join them and pledge how they will #MakeItCount over the next twelve months. So whether your ambition is to run that first marathon or simply do more than you did in 2012, however you and your friends choose to #MakeItCount together, let @NIKE know.

Check out the gallery on the next page for the Nike Running 2013 We Will #MakeItCount Campaign.

M.O.B. designer Leah McSweeney is at it again, providing her loyalists with fresh, new ways to crack wise on the world. This time it’s a classic profile, made brazen by one of M.O.B.’s most clever tag lines to date: "Men Are the New Women." Jaws will be jibber-jabbing over these!

Men We Love: Streetwear Set

18 February 2008, 16.12 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

Besides both being Sagittarians, me and my HighSnobette partner, Samia, discovered somewhere along the way that we both share an appreciation for fine-looking fellas. Seeing as a lot of the events we attend are boring as can BE, one of the ways we’ve found to entertain ourselves is to compare notes on males.

At the end of the year (yes, 2007, we also both like to procrastinate), we had this idea to do a “Best-of” list, but rather have it be just another boring ole list of brands, we’d list who we consider to be the hottest males on the streetwear scene.

For some of the guys either me or Samia wrote the comments and then for a few we both had our say.

daoud and rasu Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Daoud & Rasu, Coup D’etat BKLYN: The one of the left….okay ladies, you’ve seen his type and you know he’s one of those that’s SoDamnPretty that you feel like it’s a permanant look-but-don’t-touch situation. I mean for real, who wants to be constantly battling off the females (and let’s face it, the gays will love him, too!) every time you step out in public with him? And even if they’re not pushing up on him, their eyes are first gonna be all over him and then next all over YOU, like…what the hell is HE doing with HER?? All that being said, he’s still H.O.T! And his partner, Rasu? Just as damn cute with his cuddly fur hat and nice eyes and perhaps even a notch better than Daoud ’cause everyone in the world won’t be visually pouncing on him every time he walks in the room.

RTEmagicC RyanUnited.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Ryan, United Trade Show: Back when I first spotted him at United’s very first NY show, I had this to say about him:  ”It’s unfortunate that his eyes are closed here cuz then you could see that he’s one of those rare white guys in that he has flavor AND he doesn’t look like you could snap him in two should things get hot and heavy. I’ll admit that I was disappointed when I compared him looks-wise to Yankee-centerfield Johnny Damon and he had no idea who I was talking about, but you can’t have it all!” Having seen him again at United’s second trade show a few weeks back, I can confidently state, NADA HAS CHANGED!

RTEmagicC DavidFischerHighSnob.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^David, bossman of HighSnobiety. You may think this is the suck-up post where me and Samia do the obligatory big-up of our boss. But you would be wrong. The truth is, both of us have HAD IT UP TO HERE with his seven emails a day telling us, “MORE POSTS!” over and over and over again. (In fact, on a side note, the hell with you, David!) So see, we’re not doing this ’cause we have to. And if you met David in person, you’d understand. He’s tall, very much has dude appeal, and, well, he’s bossy, which is in and of itself is hot. Think about it, ladies. He would do ALL the work. All of it.

SGP: So yeah..I have to admit we were pleasantly surprise that Bossman:he likes when we say that : ) is actually easy on the eyes ( you know you wonder what all these anonymus bloggers look like)And quite a character…and so Tall..major bonus points in my book…

RTEmagicC MilsStacks Bundles.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Mils, Stacks & Bundles: Mils represents BX so that first vibe he projects is hard. Like, don’t even try and fucks with him! BUT three minutes into our convo (this pic was taken at a United Show in W-berg a year or so ago), he was mentioning wife-y and how he’s the one who makes sure the kicks portion of her wardrobe is always on point. And, awww, how sweet is that? Tall, dark, handsome AND he looks out for his woman’s shoe needs? Props to her for being smart enough to get this man out of circulation early in the game!

markus and howie FR Sneakology Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Markus & Howie, Sneakology: Discovered this duo: Markus and Howie in a  kicks magazine I was featured in..Not that Sneaker dudes are not cute but when you find a duo as fierce as these fine gentlemen you take notice..Especially Markus …Have you seen 300? It’s like this masculinity to the core… with this mysterious edge..walking beside a dude like that  shady folks would think twice before even uttering how fly you is..and then there’s the skull ring….need I say more…

 Men We Love: Streetwear Set

 ^^Micah, Shades of Greige: SGP: As if this picture does him justice …’Micah who won us over by a contagius sense of humour…  is the definition of a cutey pie..who does not like to laugh.? just genuine funny and just really inviting…and he’s talended, and he has great style can I say it again great Style! [Another note from Lois: Guys, you may not be aware of this, but the more you make us laugh, and I mean REALLY laugh not fake laugh, the cuter you become. It's like you and the more alcohol you drink and women.]

 RTEmagicC VladKendo.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Vlad, Kendo-LA: Right away bonus points cuz he co-owns a female sneaker boutique, but then look, he’s just so chill w/ his vee-neck tee and gold chain and CLEARLY doesn’t suffer from the malady sweeping Streetwear Nation, aka “Men are the New Women”! A woman’s dude. We could watch videos with him all weekend long and feel VERY content in our souls doing so.

RTEmagicC LouisSitsComp 01.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Louis, Kicksclusive and Laces (R.I.P) Since Lou is Latino, It’d be easy to pull the ”Ay Papi, que caliente!” descriptive, but naw, his sexy isn’t so much about Papi Chulo machismo (which, not for nothing, we have no problema with that either!) as it is about representing that quiet uber confidence that all brothers from BK seem to possess. And here’s something Lou’s got all over another famous brother from BK who shall remain unnamed coughJOVAcough, he appears to genuinely like AND respect women.

kiser Men We Love: Streetwear Set

Kiser, KiserNY: SgP- I had to Include My boy Kiser from Kiser NY who was one of those first “streetwear” brands to focus on men’s and women’s at the same time! Not only is he a cutie but he has the charm and intellect to go with… so yeah, he made our list!

RTEmagicC Dao yi chow.jpg Men We Love: Streetwear Set

^^Dao-Yi Chow: When we were visiting Ce Ce of 80%20 last week and told her about this feature, she suggested Dao-Yi. Not sure where this gorgeous-faced, cheekbones-to-kill-for man with works these days, but Google reveals that his streetwear credentials are about a mile deep. (Which, actually, made us hesitate to include him ’cause we’re not sure, based on a recent trade-show siting of Dao-Yi, that there aren’t some slight attitude ishes, but oh well, personality aint everything!)

One final note, consider this a short list. There are others we thought of, but for whatever reason, we just couldn’t get our hands on them, excuse me, GET a picture of them. They are shown in NO particular order. We swear!

One other final note: If one of the males shown here is your steady, boyfriend, husband, fiance, lover, etc., do NOT view this list as any attempt on our part to wrestle them away from you. We just looking, not trying to purchase the merchandise. ‘Sides, when you’re a fly female you know better than to waste your time trying to snatch some other sister’s man!
