NEW YORK — Galen Rupp had a secret weapon when he toed the line at Monday’s rain-soaked Boston Marathon: a spanking new shoe from Nike featuring a proprietary 3-D-printed textile that is intended to more effectively wick water. And although he failed to finish, it had more to do with his nutrition than his footwear.
Called the FlyPrint, the sneaker is the latest iteration to be birthed from the Zoom Vaporfly Elite, the shoe worn by Eliud Kipchoge when he ran the fastest marathon ever last year.
Trevor Andrew, the artist known for his Gucci Ghost collaboration with Gucci, hit Complexcon last weekend to launch his fist line, Real Buy. The streetwear line includes jackets, short- and long-sleeve T-shirts, each with one of the artist’s seven designs, reports @ariahughes .
A little bit 80’s — circa 2018. Tap for fashion credits.

Kane Brown didn’t take the traditional road to country music stardom, writes @jeanpalmieri .
Instead of cutting his teeth in church and dive bars throughout the South, Brown made a splash on Facebook by releasing several covers of country classics — George Strait’s “Check Yes or No” and Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” among them — that soon went viral. “I was working at FedEx and Target and just doing it for fun,” he said of the videos. “I put it on social media and got around 50 likes. Then I woke up one day and saw that it had gone viral overnight.” Read more on WWD.com 📸: @georgechinsee
