Jordan Brand Takes a Classic into the Future

first_img Your New Favorite Pair of Go-to Leather Shoes Just Got More Affordable In 1995, the Air Jordan 11 became an instant classic with its high-tech outsole and patent leather upper. The popular dress shoe material made its basketball court debut on Michael Jordan’s feet and the rest was history. The Air Jordan Future Premium looks to do the same in 2014, seamlessly melding high-quality materials and beautiful color blocking that go hand-in-hand with the classic outsole. The result? A pair of sneakers that are as versatile as they are comfortable.The Jordan Future isn’t exactly like the Air Jordan 11, though. Super-light woven tech material replaces the patent leather upper, while a smaller lacing area renders the lifestyle shoes more form-fitting than their basketball counterpart made of leather and nubuck. The outsole, however, remains largely unchanged with the same icy EVA material and carbon fiber shank as the classic.Nike has released the Jordan Futures in a variety of different color options since the Jordan Futures were first introduced earlier this year, but the metallic silver rendition — shown above — represents the second premium iteration of the shoe. Soft, sock-like suede also replaces the nubuck tongue and inner liner, and the woven upper is even threaded with 3M material. The latter feature ensures the shoes really pop under bright lights and camera flashes. 8 Pairs of Sneakers to Keep Clean and Crispy for Special Occasions You Won’t Believe the Price Tags on 10 of the Most Expensive Shoes For Men How to Transition Your Wardrobe to Fall The Best Men’s Heritage Outdoor Apparel for Cool Weather Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more

Hackers steal US153m from Mexico financial system

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (AFP) — Hackers who targeted Mexico’s interbank payment system made off with more than US$15 million in the past several weeks, the Bank of Mexico said Wednesday.The amount of funds involved in the irregular activity totalled “approximately 300 million pesos (US$15.3 million),” central bank governor Alejandro Diaz de Leon told reporters.He said commercial bank customers’ accounts were never in danger.An investigation is under way, the governor said, without indicating if the suspected hackers were domestic or international.The interbank payments system allows banks to make real-time transfers to each other.They connect via their own computer systems or an external provider — the point where the attacks appear to have taken place, Lorenza Martinez, director general of the corporate payments and services system at the central bank, said on Monday.Martinez revealed that at least five attacks had occurred but, at that time, said the amount taken was still being analysed.After the attacks were detected, banks switched to a slower but more secure method.
