K-Swiss Free Running Sneaks: Fashion Meets Function

If you’re never heard of parkour or free running, you’ve probably at least seen it before. (Remember that intense wall-scaling, rooftop-hopping chase through the Marrakesh markets in the James Bond flick Casino Royale?) What was once an underground physical activity has clearly made it to the mainstream, confirmed by the launch of K-Swiss’ new line of sneakers especially made for this urban gymnast’s sport. (The stuntman behind the Bond chase scene, by the way, is Sébastian Foucan, K-Swiss’ official spokesperson for the line.)

CSA Boxes: Eatwell Farm

OK—I’m about to get a little bit preachy. We just wrapped our annual green issue, which will be on newsstands at the end of March, and it prompted a lot of conversations around the office about what we could do…me, and you, and even you, and what habits we might change to make a positive impact on our city and world at large. Since I’m the assistant eat + drink editor, my thoughts always turn to food—how we communicate with food, how with celebrate with food, and how we get political with our food.
