adidas zx 500 Let’s Start Our Journey of Nike Air Cushion

The former Nike air cushion was formed in a resilient synthetic rubber layer which formed by pouring the air gas into a resilient synthetic rubber under a high pressure. Air Sole was a “mean” air cushion, which had a balanced performance in the cushioning ability, stability performance and reaction speed performance. Until today, this air cushion is in a wide application range among the series sports.

Visible Air Sole: This kind of air cushion was made the Air Sole into a visible type, such as the heel portion of the AIR JORDAN 3 was used this visible Air Sole. Being regarded as the transitional form between Air Sole and Max Air, Visible 180 Air Sole can perform a good damping force and a perfect visible impact.

Air Max was launched in 1994, with an initial form of the U shaped, and then developed into multi sealed chamber Air Max and the trachea shaped Tube Max Air. It had a multi interval, multiple pressures, low pressure zone pressure 5PSI, high pressure zone pressure 25PSI. Air Max cushioning ability was very strong, can provide appropriateness protection to your feet and your knees, but may cause the loss of machine power. This air cushion was widely used in various types of running shoes and basketball shoes.

The only 4 8mm thickness air cushion Zoom Air was an air cushion by using a three dimensional fabric to keep its flat shape, and not it would turn to a ball shape, with the air pressure of 20PSI. The damping effect with an excellent sense of site sensitive rebound effect and excellent acceleration, Zoom Air was widely used in extensive outside basketball shoes (such as FLIGHT series, the AJ series), and speed of running shoes (such as Air zoom Miler). Visible Zoom Air: The external visible Zoom Air was with greater capacity and better cushioning performance.

Turnes Air cushion was a hemisphere shape cushioning system which can provide a maximum force protection, stable and comfort foot feeling, the most eye catching place was that its variable hemisphere shape shoe body can changing the air pressure according to its demand. The PBAX thermoplastic material used in the TN Air cushion has the advantages of a fast reflection, rubbing, and lightweight, flexible and suitable feet feeling under the appropriate shoes thickness, with a hemispheric body pressure of 20PSI and a cushion pressure of 5PSI.

The total Air: This kind of air cushion can be regarded as the larger version of Max Air palm, with 1.5cm extra length in the fore palm. Total Air Foamposite Max, namely “Steel”, was the most typical example of Total Air Cushion.

The mid sole mechanical cushioning system was composed by the special highly elastic foam materials (advanced PU materials) damping elastic column, and double TPU trays. SHOX used in the basketball and running shoes were with different roles. SHOX system can provide perfect damping performance, but people who are under the weight of 70kg can not have obvious feeling, and this system is widely used in all kinds of sports shoes. IMPAX was the SHOX simplified version, which did not adopt the columnar bottom, and as an alternative, the horizontal punch technology was being used to achieve the effect of damping and stability.

IPS was developed specifically by Nike for the new damping technology of Air Jordan XX, by using 20 pieces Phylon material with different density, thickness, size and location, made the relatively independent and organic complexes cylindrical shock absorber.

What do you give a millionaire rock star who wants for nothing? The answer, it would appear, is a pair of trainers. And Noel Gallagher likes trainers. A lot. So much, in fact, that they helped fill the void when he kicked his drug habit more than a decade ago. The singer spent years, and a small fortune, on cocaine before quitting the drug in 1998, replacing it with a new fix.

“When I gave up drugs I had to obsess about something, and I’m not into cars, not into jewellery and all that kind of thing, and I had loads of guitars, so I set off on a quest to collect adidas trainers.” Adidas was a central part of the Oasis look, along with a Beatles mop of hair and Lambretta jackets. For the young Gallagher brothers, the sports brand symbolised youth culture.

And for Noel and Liam, growing up in Burnage, Manchester without much money meant resorting to crime. “We weren’t really in the market for the good gear when we were lads. We were on the dole. We had nothing, so what we had that was nice was mostly shoplifted.”

Years later, with the pair selling millions of records and playing to sold out stadiums as Oasis, Gallagher admits he would spend hours scouring sports shops for trainers instead of sound checking and doing interviews. “I had silly amounts you couldn’t open a cupboard without 20 pairs of adidas trainers falling out.” And he laughs as he admits trying to hide his trainers from his wife by having two pairs in each box.

He ended up with more than 100 pairs of trainers, but several years ago decided to scale back his collection. “I kept the best ones back, I’ve probably got about 20 or 30 real vintage pairs, and I put the rest back out there I gave them to charity shops. Funnily enough when I go to Camden market I still see some of my pairs there and I’ve been very tempted to buy them back.”

We are talking ahead of an adidas Spezial exhibition organised by his friend Gary Aspden, a consultant to the company. Opening at the Hoxton Gallery, London on Friday, the exhibition will feature more than 600 pairs of trainers from the late 1960s to today. Gallagher has lent some of his collection, including his most prized pair of “adidas holiday” trainers.

Surely he must be inundated with free ones? Wrong. “I like buying them. It’s like getting shoes, or getting owt for free, like downloading, it’s wrong.” But at 46, he says his trainer days are numbered. Gallagher once spent a drunken night with Paul Weller when the pair “scientifically worked out that the cut off age is 50 for wearing trainers”.

It is not just fashion that Gallagher dwells on. Institutions like the NHS and welfare system were created “when England had a massive empire and the country was rich,” he says. “Our country is not rich any more.” New Labour “killed politics” and there is “nothing left to vote for,” he adds. “They proved themselves to be the same as the Conservatives, they killed politics in a way.”

The former Oasis star has played with his High Flying Birds since Oasis broke up in 2009. After more than a decade together he married Sara MacDonald in 2011. The couple have two young sons, Donovan and Sonny, and Noel has a teenage daughter, Anais, from his first marriage to Meg Mathews.

There’s no sign of reuniting with his estranged brother Liam but he seems happy. The singer agrees. He is “writing all the time” and says this is “one of the happiest” times in his life. “1995 to ’97 would take some beating but yeah, it’s good, man.”

custom adidas Levi Strauss Tries to Minimize Water Use

SAN FRANCISCO From the cotton field in rural India to the local rag bin, a typical pair of blue jeans consumes 919 gallons of water during its life cycle, Levi Strauss Company says, or enough to fill about 15 spa size bathtubs. That includes the water that goes into irrigating the cotton crop, stitching the jeans together and washing them scores of times at home.

The company wants to reduce that number any way it can, and not just to project environmental responsibility. It fears that water shortages caused by climate change may jeopardize the company’s very existence in the coming decades by making cotton too expensive or scarce.

So to protect its bottom line, Levi Strauss has helped underwrite and champion a nonprofit program that teaches farmers in India, Pakistan, Brazil and West and Central Africa the latest irrigation and rainwater capture techniques. It has introduced a brand featuring stone washed denim smoothed with rocks but no water. It is sewing tags into all of its jeans urging customers to wash less and use only cold water.

To customers seeking further advice, Levi Strauss suggests washing jeans rarely, if at all the theory being that putting them in the freezer will kill germs that cause them to smell.

Conservation worries are not limited to the clothing giants: food and beverage conglomerates, tobacco companies and metal and mining companies are all starting to reckon with their heavy dependence on water. Pepsico, for example, has embraced a method of sanitizing plastic bottles with purified air instead of water at a plant in Georgia. For its Frito Lay brands, it has identified drought resistant potato strains that it provides to farmers along with a soil monitoring method so that crops are watered only when necessary.

Continue reading the main story

The Carbon Disclosure Project, a group that monitors corporations’ greenhouse gas emissions, recently added water security to its priorities. Of the 150 companies that responded last year to a questionnaire that it sent to the world’s largest corporations, nearly 40 percent reported that water problems had already resulted in “detrimental impacts” to their businesses.

The threat of water shortages was brought home to Levi Strauss last year when floods in Pakistan and parched fields in China destroyed cotton crops and sent prices soaring. Roughly two pounds of cotton go into every pair of jeans that the company manufactures. Although scientists are wary of linking specific extreme weather events to climate change, recent increases in floods and droughts are in line with patterns that experts have long projected would result from global warming. The general rule of thumb is that wet regions will get wetter and dry regions will become even more arid.

Upmanu Lall, director of the Columbia Water Center at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, said that the local implications of those changes were still being sorted out but that “agriculture, which does best with a relatively consistent supply of water, will be impacted the most.”

That is particularly the case for cotton, the world’s biggest nonfood crop. Many big cotton producing countries like India, which has tens of thousands of small cotton farmers, lack the reservoirs to store water, heightening the risk of shortages.

Companies doing business overseas are also contending with rising water costs or water that is not clean enough. Then there is the threat of bad publicity if a corporation is perceived to be squandering precious local water.

“The total volume of water used by a single beverage business, for example, may not be much,” Dr. Lall said. “But they are often the most visible users in a locality, depleting groundwater much more quickly than, say, a small farmer.”

It is not lost on American and European manufacturers that cotton already competes with grain for what arable land exists in some regions, a tension that will only grow as the world seeks to feed its growing population in coming decades.

Making ‘Better Cotton’

Because cotton is mostly grown by a diffuse network of very small farmers in more than 70 countries, encouraging water efficient practices is a formidable challenge. Cotton cultivation accounts for more than 3 percent of the world’s agricultural water use and 6 percent of all pesticide purchases. Outmoded practices like field flooding contribute to overconsumption.

In 2005, nongovernmental and cotton industry organizations and some giant retailers, including Ikea, the Gap and Adidas, founded the international nonprofit Better Cotton Initiative to promote water conservation and reduce pesticide use and child labor practices in the industry. Partners include groups like Cotton Inc., an American industry association that has provided technical know how. A three year independent study of Indian farms found those adopting the new techniques reduced water and pesticide use by an average of 32 percent, the initiative says. The profit was 20 percent higher than that of a control group using traditional methods.

Kailash Himmitrao Mahalle grows cotton in Shelu, India, about 90 miles east of Mumbai. On one side of his 15 acre farm, which was used to compare methods, the cotton plants are about a foot taller and bear more flowers than the ones on the other side. The lusher field has a drip irrigation system a tangle of plastic veins that direct water to each plant’s root system that was installed with advice from the Better Cotton Initiative.

Mr. Mahalle said the drip system spreads water and fertilizer more evenly than traditional pumping, and because it puts water only where it is needed, it also results in fewer weeds.

Power failures, commonplace in India, are less worrisome now because drip irrigation does not require electricity over an extended period of time, as traditional irrigating methods do. “This takes three hours; that takes three days,” Mr. Mahalle said, and his water use is down by about 70 percent.

The resulting crop from the new methods of farming is now referred to by Levi Strauss and the initiative as “better cotton.” Levi Strauss’s top management says that about 5 percent of the cotton used in the two million pairs of jeans the company shipped to stores this fall was grown with the sustainable method. The company wants that number to rise to 20 percent by 2015.

Ikea, the furniture chain, hopes to be using “better cotton” exclusively by 2015. The footwear maker Adidas has said it will do the same by 2018.

To reach its 20 percent goal, Levi Strauss says it must radically change how it does business, engaging more directly with contractors as well as farmers. There was a time when American corporations preferred not to know what was going on in foreign factories to afford them maximum deniability in the event that poor labor or environmental practices were discovered.

Levi Strauss, which reported $4.4 billion in net revenue last year, would not reveal how much it is spending on water sustainability efforts, beyond saying that the company and its foundation have given a combined $600,000 to the Better Cotton Initiative since 2009.

Never do we ever think of leopard print as being a subtle fashion statement.

If you usually reserve the timeless trend for larger pieces like, say, a furry overcoat, a structured jacket or even a body con cocktail dress not alone. While centering your look around a key spotted piece is one way to incorporate the trend, it’s not the only way. If you’re Selena Gomez or Gigi Hadid, you’ve adopted a less aggressive stance on the bold pattern. As footwear,

a good leopard print basically goes with anything.

Okay, so Gigi is far from low key here (it’s just not in her DNA), but by following her style code you can achieve a low key casual look, ideal for flying under the radar. For a pulled together aesthetic, pair leopard loafers with a super simple rolled jeans and T shirt combo. White works, but for a lower key vibe,

try black or grey instead. A matching overcoat and baseball cap in the same shade will complete your incognito attire.

adidas goodyear trainers Lendl will help Murray

DARREN Cahill, who guided the careers of Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi, was long considered by many to be the ideal coach for Andy Murray, but the Australian gave his full backing to the world No 4’s choice of Ivan Lendl.

Cahill helped Murray last year in his role as one of the adidas team of coaches, but his broadcast commitments as an analyst for ESPN mean he is unavailable to assist during grand slam tournaments. However, he believes that Murray has made an excellent appointment in Lendl, who has never coached a leading player and spent 15 years out of the game following his retirement.

“I really encouraged Andy to consider Ivan,” Cahill said as he looked ahead to the Australian Open, which starts here on Monday. “It’s not easy, when players look at these former champions, to get their heads around the fact that they are going to fully commit to the coaching job because, to be quite frank, a lot of these guys can go off and in two or three days make the type of money that they can make from a full year of coaching.

“So it is unusual that a Lendl, a Connors or a McEnroe or any of these legends of the game would actually commit to somebody else’s career. We felt like Ivan ticked a lot of boxes in what Andy was looking for.”

Cahill added: “I do think it is going to be a great association. He [Lendl] has been incredibly fastidious with everything he has done with Andy and I think a lot of that is going to wear off on Andy. He looks like he is taking this coaching job the very same way he took his playing career and that is to turn over every stone to be as good as he can. He was probably the most professional player back in his era and I am assuming he is going to take that very same attitude into his coaching career.”

Murray has lost his first three Grand Slam finals, while Lendl lost four before going on to win eight. Cahill believes the Scot can learn from the former world No 1’s experience. “There are no guarantees of success but I am pretty sure that by the end of it, whenever that is, Andy will be a better player because of it,” he said. “There are a lot of similarities between the two. Andy can relate to Ivan and I think that makes a big difference.”

Cahill will still be available to help Murray, through their adidas connection. “If Andy wants to phone me up at any time and talk tennis, then I’m happy to do that,” he said. “But I think it’s going to be very much their team and certainly for the next couple of months they will be spending a lot of time together and getting to know each other, which I think is important.”

Murray, who won his first tournament in Brisbane last weekend in front of his new coach, has been practising here and was due to play his final warm up match today against David Nalbandian at the exhibition event at Kooyong.

The temperature is expected to climb into the 30s by the start of the year’s opening grand slam tournament, but it has been cool and wet this week, disrupting the qualifying competition.

Nevertheless, three Britons came through the first round of qualifying yesterday. Laura Robson beat Melanie Oudin 6 3, 6 4, while Naomi Broady also progressed at the expense of an American, beating Ashley Weinhold 6 4, 5 7, 6 3.

James Ward had lost the first set against Inigo Cervantes Huegun when play was stopped on Wednesday but the Briton recovered yesterday to win 6 7, 7 6, 6 1. Ireland’s Conor Niland was beaten 6 3, 6 2 by Switzerland’s Stephane Bohli.

Although the season is less than a fortnight old, several players are nursing injuries. Rafael Nadal said yesterday that his sore left shoulder was “good” and hoped it would not hamper him next week, but it remains to be seen whether Caroline Wozniacki, the world No 1, will make it to the start line. The Dane, who injured her left wrist in losing to Agnieszka Radwanska in Sydney on Wednesday, had a scan yesterday. No serious injury was revealed but she was due to see a specialist here today. At least Wozniacki knows she will be at the top of the world rankings for at least another two weeks. Petra Kvitova would have overtaken her if she had won the title in Sydney, but the Wimbledon champion was beaten 1 6, 7 5, 6 2 in yesterday’s semi finals by Li Na. Victoria Azarenka won the other semi final, beating Radwanska 1 6, 6 3, 6 2.

Venus Williams and Andrea Petkovic have already pulled out of next week’s tournament, while Kim Clijsters and Serena Williams both suffered injuries in Brisbane last week. Clijsters has a problem with a hip muscle and the younger of the Williams sisters twisted her ankle. “I’m taking it a day at a time,” Serena said. “It’s not 100 per cent, but it’s better than it was last week and that’s always a step forward.”

adidas spezial green Libraries Reveal Keys to Success

Michael Moritz, the venture capitalist who built a personal $1.5 billion fortune discovering the likes of Google, YouTube, Yahoo and PayPal, and taking them public, may seem preternaturally in tune with new media. But it is the imprint of old media books by the thousands sprawling through his Bay Area house that occupies his mind.

“My wife calls me the Imelda Marcos of books,” Mr. Moritz said in an interview. “As soon as a book enters our home it is guaranteed a permanent place in our lives. Because I have never been able to part with even one, they have gradually accumulated like sediment.”

Serious leaders who are serious readers build personal libraries dedicated to how to think, not how to compete. Ken Lopez, a bookseller in Hadley, Mass., says it is impossible to put together a serious library on almost any subject for less than several hundred thousand dollars.

Perhaps that is why more than their sex lives or bank accounts chief executives keep their libraries private. Few Nike colleagues, for example, ever saw the personal library of the founder, Phil Knight, a room behind his formal office. To enter, one had to remove one’s shoes and bow: the ceilings were low, the space intimate, the degree of reverence demanded for these volumes on Asian history, art and poetry greater than any the self effacing Mr. Knight, who is no longer chief executive, demanded for himself. canon, its rule is this: “Don’t follow your mentors, follow your mentors’ mentors,” suggests David Leach, chief executive of the American Medical Association’s accreditation division. Mr. Leach has stocked his cabin in the woods of North Carolina with the collected works of Aristotle.

Forget finding the business best seller list in these libraries. “I try to vary my reading diet and ensure that I read more fiction than nonfiction,” Mr. Moritz said. “I rarely read business books, except for Andy Grove’s ‘Swimming Across,’ which has nothing to do with business but describes the emotional foundation of a remarkable man. I re read from time to time T. E. Lawrence’s ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom,’ an exquisite lyric of derring do, the navigation of strange places and the imaginative ruses of a peculiar character.

Darwin’s “Origin of Species” was priced at a few thousand dollars in the 1950s. “Then DNA became the scientific rage,” said Mr. Windle. “Now copies are selling for $250,000. But the desire to own a piece of Darwin’s mind is coming to an end. I have a customer who collects diaries of people of no importance at all. libraries typically lack a Dewey Decimal or even org chart order. “My books are organized by topic and interest but in a manner that would make a librarian weep,” Mr. Moritz said. Is there something “Da Vinci Code” like about mixing books up in an otherwise ordered life?

Could it be possible to read Phil Knight’s books in the order in which Mr. The empire loving Elizabeth I surrounded herself with the Roman historians, many of whom she translated, and kept one book under lock and key in her bedroom, in a French translation she alone of her court could read: Machiavelli’s treatise on how to overthrow republics, “The Prince.” Churchill retreated to his library to heal his wounds after being voted out of power in 1945 and after reading for six years came back to power.

It took Dee Hock, father of the credit card and founder of Visa, a thousand books to find The One. Mr. Hock walked away from business life in 1984 and looked back only from his library’s walls. He built a dream 2,000 square foot wing for his books in a pink stucco mansion atop a hill in Pescadero, Calif. He sat among the great philosophers and the novelists of Western life like Steinbeck and Stegner and dreamed up a word for what Visa is: “chaordic” complex systems that blend order and chaos.

In his library, Mr. Hock found the book that contained the thoughts of all of them. Visitors can see opened on his library table for daily consulting, Omar Khayyam’s “Rubiyt,” the Persian poem that warns of the dangers of greatness and the instability of fortune. “I used to tell my senior staff to get me poets as managers,” says Sidney Harman, founder of Harman Industries, a $3 billion producer of sound systems for luxury cars, theaters and airports. Mr. Harman maintains a library in each of his three homes, in Washington, Los Angeles and Aspen, Colo. “Poets are our original systems thinkers,” he said. “They look at our most complex environments and they reduce the complexity to something they begin to understand.”

He never could find a poet who was willing to be a manager. So Mr. Harman became his own de facto poet, quoting from his volumes of Shakespeare, Tennyson, and the poetry he found in Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” and Camus’s “Stranger” to help him define the dignity of working life a poetry he made real in his worker friendly factories.

Mr. For two years Mr. Harman would take down from the shelf “The City of God” by E. L. Doctorow read the novel slowly, return it to the shelves, and then take it down again for his next trip. “Almost everything I have read has been useful to me science, poetry, politics, novels. I have a lifelong interest in epistemology and learning. My books have helped me develop a way of thinking critically in business and in golf a fabulous metaphor for the most interesting stuff in life. My library is full of things I might go back to.”

It was the empty library room and its floor to ceiling ladder that made Shelly Lazarus, the chairwoman and chief executive of Ogilvy Mather, fall in love with her house in the Berkshires, which was built in 1740. “When my husband and I moved in, we said, ‘We’re never going to fill this room,’ and just last week I realized we needed to build an addition to the library. Once I’ve read a book I keep it. It becomes a part of me.

“As head of a global company, everything attracts me as a reader, books about different cultures, countries, problems. I read for pleasure and to find other perspectives on how to think or solve a problem, like Jerome Groopman’s ‘How Doctors Think’; John Cornwall’s autobiography, ‘Seminary Boy’; ‘The Wife,’ a novel by Meg Wolitzer; and before that, ‘Team of Rivals.’

“David Ogilvy said advertising is a great field, anything prepares you for it,” she said. “That gives me license to read everything.”

Correction: July 24, 2007

An article in Business Day on Saturday about the private library collections of several business executives referred incorrectly to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, whose chief executive, David Leach, commented on his collection of the works of Aristotle. The accreditation council is an independent, nonprofit organization; it is no longer a division of the American Medical Association. (The two separated in 2003.) The article also included a quotation from Shelly Lazarus, chairwoman and chief executive of Ogilvy Mather, that misstated the title of a book in her collection. It is “How Doctors Think” by Dr. Jerome Groopman not “How to Think Like a Doctor.”
