Restock Alert: adidas Originals YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 Zebra


If you had suffered defeat on the first release of getting your hands on one of the dopest sneakers, here is your second chance!


The third variation of the silhouette to release in 2017, is this zebra-inspired finish. Compared to the model’s history of tonal renditions, this particular pair bears a Zebra-like pattern to distinguish itself from the line. Furthermore, it’s suggested that the sneaker features a distinctive aesthetic when exposed under UV lighting to further exemplify its dynamic profile in various lighting conditions.

Rendered in classic shades of black and white, in addition to accents of red for its signature “SPLY-350” branding on the side panels, the silhouette is topped off with a heel pull tab and crisp white full-length boost sole unit.

The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zebra” will be available on Saturday, 24 June 2017, at selected retailers.

First Look: Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold


Last seen in 2010, the Nike Air Max 97 OG is back in its original Metallic Gold colour scheme.


Just like the ‘Silver Bullet’ colourway, the Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold stays true to the original design. First launched in the early 90s, this ‘Gold’ theme became a cult icon and collectible sneak. Premium leather adorns the upper with that shimmering colourway contrasted by light beige detailing. That features the chunky tongue as well as the mesh below the leather. The full-length Air Unit which sits underfoot takes it right back to the old school, while the white midsole manages to balance the upper. To complete the look, a red mini Swoosh is stamped across the sidewall.


The Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold is available at selected retailers.

Celebrate this Father's Day with Tullamore D.E.W and get to know him better!


It’s Father’s Day. You have just sat down with your dad. You’ve poured your first drink. You’ve said “sláinte”. That’s Gaelic for "good health". Maybe it’s your first conversation. Maybe it’s just your first in a while. Either way, it’s time to take the time to get to know each other better.

You may think it strange to be sipping a whiskey with your dad. We think it's your first step to really get to know the only man who's literally known you your whole life.

The Irish know a lot about two things; whiskey & family, which is why this Father’s Day you two can share the world’s second largest selling Irish whiskey in the world, while you learn more about each other as people. Tullamore DEW encourages you to sit down in the true Irish spirit and share...responsibly of course.
