The adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 “Chinese New Year”

For the last few weeks, we have seen Nike and adidas roll out new colorways of a number of their top models dressed in color schemes designed specifically for the upcoming Chinese New Year. Of course, the Three Stripe’s CNY festivities would not be complete without an entrant from the famed Ultra Boost, coming dressed in a Core Black and Scarlet colorway of its 4.0 variety. Special CNY-friendly details arrive via an all-over pattern on its laces as well as a matching motif on its custom insoles. A finishing touch arrives via its adidas tongue tag, as alongside the brand’s familiar Trefoil logo sits a “Ren Zhe” hit that signifies the famous Chinese artist known for casting and smelting metal figures, leading to this Boost’s black and fiery read color scheme. Those looking to add these clean Ultra Boosts to their collection today can head over to the detailed list of retailers you see here and tell us what you think of this model in the comments below.

Yeah very cute and pretty but WHY?

I've always considered these little expensive collectables like cocaine. Invented by someone thats decided you make far too much money!

£40 for a bog roll ffs! Whatever next?

Not always thought this way tho. Used to be a Beat the Jomses sort of bloke who always had to get the newest gadget etc. But I can honestly say the only NEW things in my flat are probably trainers. And thats just its difficult getting vintage size 15s

My Mrs was the same. She loved her clothes and accessories but again loved vintage. She also liked collecting Murano glass (specially Millefiori flower) and yellow diamonds so it made it easy come B'days and Xmas lol

But other than that I buy everything 2nd hand. Good quality but much much cheaper than when it was new. Goes for everything - TV, suite, washing machine, fridge even me bed (tho she drew the line at our mattress!

Not buying all the latest trinkets and 'stuff' let us use our money on having fun. Travelling, getting shitfaced, going out. MY RECORDS hahaha!!!

Had to go to the cop shop today. Was walking to the Emirates the other day when a couple of our lovely plod pulled me for a stop and search. Found my hash oils and because of my previous they didn't know how to deal with me as my record for drugs has been clean for 19 years. So they gave me a producer so they could ponder it.

I dont very often at all smoke tobacco and have never smoked cigarettes but have been a cannabis smoker for over 40 years now and since the Vapororizors were invented Ive always used one.
At home I have a Volcano and when I go out I've got a Ghost MV1 which is fantastic and I always take it to the games. Never been pulled at The Bridge.

Our - the British, cannabis laws are archaic and we are far behind the rest of the world. Our Govt. is the Chelsea board towards drugs!!
Yet Britain is the largest producer and exporter of medicinal Cannabis namely Sativex which is licensed to treat muscle stiffness and spasms in people with multiple sclerosis. ONLY available on the NHS in Wales ffs!!
So much of the free world have or are either legalizing or decriminalizing cannabis. MANY of the US States,Germany,Italy,Holland,Canada,Uruguay,Spain,Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Jamaica,Luxembourg etc etc ..) It has created a big income for those places concerning revenue and taxes. It also saves much hassle on already over worked judicial system and creates room in our over flowing prisons for drug posession leaving room to lock up rapists, paedophiles and *shoplifters ( * = sarcasm but amazing just how many do get locked up)
Yet here in supposedly one of the forward thinking and open minded countries we can still get locked up for simple posession. Tho in 2016 the last numbers I can find there was 16,500 convictions for posession with 292 getting time.
Penaltys depends on the amount of the drug, the person's criminal history and other aggravating or mitigating factors. Police can also issue a warning or an on-the-spot fine of £90.
I had less than even 1/2G of oils but with my drugs history they were at a loss how to deal with me so I had to go to the OB station down Bishopsgate to find out just WTF they were going to do.
Now I know these oils are over 30% THC but they didn't have the time to send them out for analysis, which I would have loved to have found out the %, and with the large scale production of homegrown in Britain and amoumt of searches similar to mine, that I doubt it is an unusual % now. Much much higher than in the swinging 60s when the powers that be were making such a big deal about pot. Those guys back then would have freaked out over our current cannabis.

Anyways they ended up giving me a £50 spot fine which I reluctantly paid them but it's pissed me off.

We as cannabis users should be allowed to grow a small amount of plants for personal use (even if we had to buy a licence to grow) and be allowed to possess say even 5G wherever and whenever. It would take all the money out of unscrupulous bastards hands that add all sorts of glass powder and shit to bring up their profits and keep cannabis crimes to a minimal.
But as we turned down all suggestions from the Hague to decriminalize/legalize I don't see it happening in the near future!

This story this morning regarding Emiliano Sala doesn't look good.

Let's all hope he and anybody else is found alive and well but it's not promising.

Poor sod.

His family must have been celebrating for days with him making the move.

They must think its a nightmare.

Been watching a bit of Air Crash Investigations on National Geographic (brilliant show) and plane crashes really are the worst kind.

Mate any crash where there is a death is heartbreaking. Specially for the person that has to go and ID their loved one.

It's an image that stays with you your whole life and very difficult to remember their faces any other way.

I am trying to find the best deal on the new camo pattern Chelsea pre-match jersey, but only Worldsoccershop/Soccer.com have it here, in the U.S., while the Chelseamegastore sells it for a bit more (shipped from the UK apparently).  

Anyone know of a good alternative? I'm trying to avoid shipping or get a discount. Might need to wait a couple months, but these seem to be uncommon for retailers.

SEEMS to be about average price in UK bud. Tho I must admit to gave not bought a new season shirt for many years. But was bought a Diego one for a prezzy.

I'm sure we have some shirt wearers on site to help more.
