Eco-friendly brand Allbirds, new to the footwear scene with its concise offering of footwear made of renewable merino wool, is opening the doors to its second store on Thursday, this time in NYC’s trendy Soho neighborhood. The direct-to-consumer brand, which debuted in 2016, opened its first brick-and-mortar location in April in its home base of San Francisco.
Flats continue as one of fall’s must-have silhouettes. But for those who might be shying away from the look due to the lack of support underfoot, there are lots of comfort-driven options this season to make the style even easier to wear. When shopping for a new flat, simply because it’s low to the ground does’t automatically make it comfortable. So don’t decide on a style simply due to its eye appeal. What’s inside is equally important, so look for cushioned footbeds and arch support.
Would-be footwear designers can get some insight into the evolution of a shoe with today’s debut of Pensole Footwear Design Academy’s sneaker competition online. The first three episodes will air on Complex’s YouTube channel, while the remaining will follow on YouTube Red. The original unscripted series, “Lace Up: The Ultimate Sneaker Challenge,” was produced through a partnership by 10/10 Entertainment, Largardère Sports and footwear design and Pensole founder D‘Wayne Edwards.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
