FUBU may be thinking about cutting a check for the KKK member caught wearing its sneakers. At least that's what Daymond John, founder of the apparel company, says in this new clip from TMZ. John says he's conflicted about the guy's obvious racism, but can't deny that he's got great taste in sneakers. In the hilarious clip, John goes on to say that he's happy about the exposure that the incident earned his brand. "People have been calling FUBU every day now, of all colors," John says.
Fans of Deion Sanders' 1990s trainers from Nike have more reason to celebrate, as the brand just rolled out another colorway of his first Diamond Turf model. The new colorway, a tonal red take with white soles, is available now from Shoe Palace here. Nike's been rather quiet about the return of this Sanders shoe, an approach that could possibly be connected to the retired two-sport legend's tendency to bash the brand publicly.
Nike is again switching up the way it releases footwear, this time trying an approach for the launch of the Nike SB Dunk High "Momofuku" that requires shoppers to use an interactive camera function in its SNKRS app to unlock the shoes. How does it work? App users will have to bring up the sneaker's page and then point the camera on their mobile device at an image of the menu from Fuku East Village or one of the Nike posters pasted outside Momofuku locations in the U.S. (both pictured below).
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".
