The recently opened women’s clothing stores Andi’s Closet and Zoe’s Boutique offer locally owned alternatives on Superior Street as an alternative to Miller Hill Mall and franchise chain stores.

Andi’s Closet set up shop June 9 in the former location of the Lakeview Coffeehouse in the Fitger’s Brewery Complex at 600 E. Superior St., while Zoe’s Boutique opened June 13 within Ed Barbo’s Columbia Clothing Company at 303 W. Superior St.

The two shops could fill a void for women’s clothing in the downtown area, an unmet market pointed out by a consultant to the Greater Downtown Council last winter. James McComb, president of McComb Group, a retail consulting company in Minneapolis, said the Miller Hill Mall has hip stores for kids and teenagers, while there is a significant underserved market that downtown can capitalize on.

The study from the Greater Downtown Council and the McComb Group said the potential for women’s clothing retail sales in the downtown area could be $18 million in 2010 and about $20 million by 2015.

Kristi Stokes, president of the Greater Downtown Council, spoke with Andi’s Closet owner Andrea Johnson about the study before she opened her store.

“I’ve always felt there is a market gap, especially in women’s clothing,” said Johnson, a part owner of the Duluth Running Company.

Zoe’s Boutique owner Stephanie Sinnott Wehr said women traveled from Duluth to her Cloquet boutique and clamored for a store closer to home.

“There just aren’t a lot of options” in Duluth, said Sinnott Wehr, who opened the second store to meet her customers’ requests.

At 25 years old, Johnson said she felt out of place shopping at the mall either too old for American Eagle and Abercrombie and Fitch or too young for Coldwater Creek and Talbots.

Michael C said: It looks like totalst to me. Did you know they’ve ran a computer out of a shoe box? Who gives ast about case quality.

I’m saying that the actual material of a case matters very little you’re not going to damage any parts because of your ‘case quality’. The purpose of a case is to hold parts in place and protect them. I do not see any point in spending even $150 on a case I think it’s plain stupid actually.

Every case I’ve ever owned has only cost me anywhere from $60 to $90 and has worked wonderfully. As long as the case looks nice, has places where you can put fans, fits all parts without hastle then it’s probably a decent case. I have a Coolermaster 330 Elite which cost me $65 and it’s the best case I’ve ever had.

Quality with anything else BUT the case, yes, matters. I’ve seen someone run a socket 939 pc out of shoebox and it all worked great. Then he cut a slit just under the front of the shoe between the uppers and the sole and used it as a DVD drive. Good job you not in charge of Thermaltake or the like m8, as the majority of PC users on here and around the world would completely disagree. My Thermaltake Mozart case cost me 130 at the time of purchase. There was a

polo shirts for sale New Balance offers baseball shoes in any color you’d like

LAWRENCE Boston sports station NESN on Monday suggested on its webpage that the “monster” of a home run Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit over the fence against the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park Saturday afternoon “might still be in orbit.”

But for New Balance, Bogaerts’ two run homer came through a window at 5 South Union St. beside the Duck Bridge here in downtown Lawrence, where the athletic shoe company manufactured the prototype of the model 3000v3 baseball cleat Bogaerts was wearing at the time and where hopes are high that the shoe will be the company’s next big thing when it launches Thursday.

“The proof is in the pudding,” New Balance design manager Jonathan Grondin told a roomful of sports reporters as the company raised the curtain on the shoe at the Lawrence plant Monday morning, noting that Bogaerts also was wearing the prototype Friday, when he had three hits in five times at bat and ended a monthlong slump.

“When he puts on our shoes, he forgets about them,” Grondin said. “If he doesn’t feel them, he can focus on his job.”

Actually, the 3000v3 isn’t much different from its two earlier generations. But the shoe will follow in the footsteps of what New Balance calls its “lifestyle” models more commonly known as sneakers by allowing athletes to design the look by choosing from up to 14 colors for a dozen different parts, from the tongue to the sole to the company’s iconic “N” on both sides of each shoe, and by having factory workers sew on extras that could include the numbers on athletes’ uniforms, the name of their team or their children’s birth dates.

Bogaerts kept it simple. He has a “2” on the back of his cleats and chose red, white and blue colors, except for the “N”s, for which he chose gold.

Bogaerts didn’t attend the launch but in a press release distributed at the event he agreed. “I believe that if you think it looks good and your feel good wearing it, it will definitely help your performance,” the star shortstop said.

The process is called customization, which has done well enough for the three lifestyle brands since it was introduced in 2011 that New Balance is now expanding it to its first performance line and has plans to expand it further next year, according to Chris Epplett, a program manager. The one of a kind design will add $40 to the cost of the cleats,
ralph lauren polo store New Balance offers baseball shoes in any color you'd like
which otherwise sell for $95 to $105. The color gold has a $15 surcharge because its electroplated onto the shoe to give jocks a little extra glamour, bringing the total cost of a customized pair of cleats to as much as $160.

The shoe will ship from Lawrence within two weeks and arrive in a sleek black box trimmed in red with what looks like baseball stitching, which the company says is intended “to provide a rich experience for unboxing.”

About 20 sat unboxed on a table in a conference room for a presentation that began the press tour Monday. The colors ranged from the conservative and somber (mostly gray and black) to the loud and audacious (purple, green, silver and red). Two shoes were sealed in clear plastic boxes, one with a color portrait of Bogaerts as a backdrop, the other with a portrait of Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano.

All of the customization will be done on the football field size second floor of the Lawrence plant, which was buzzing for the press tour Monday morning even before the orders for customized shoes started coming in. Spokesmen for the company won’t say how many customized pairs of baseball cleats it expects to make, which would be added to the 14 million to 16 million it manufactures annually in Lawrence and four other New England plants.

But the size of the manufacturing workforce in Lawrence will not expand beyond the 215 now working there. In all, the building employs 650 people, part of New Balance’s worldwide workforce of about 6,000.

Monday’s unavailing of the customized 3000v3 baseball cleat was part of a full court press by New Balance to win over the media for cleat customization that began Sunday, when it flew in a dozen or so industry reporters from publications that ranged from Sports Illustrated to Sneaker Freaker, and booked them into the Lenox Hotel. After dinner Sunday and breakfast Monday, the group was bused up to Lawrence to tour the plant, then back to Boston to the company’s new headquarters in Brighton, which is shaped like a shoe, of course. The day ended at a New Balance suite at Fenway Park, where the reporters were treated to a Red Sox game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Bogaerts was scheduled for second in the batting order.

polo store locator New Sherwood coach inherits top team

polo jeans New Sherwood coach inherits top team

There is a long list of reasons that back up the notion first year Sherwood High School softball coach Ashley Barber Strunk has stepped into the most enviable coaching position in Montgomery County. The 2002 Richard Montgomery graduate after all inherited a two time defending Class 4A state championship program on a 42 game winning streak that returns six starters, including the county best pitcher in Towson University recruit Meggie Dejter.

It is, however, just as easy prove that the member of Lock Haven University 2006 NCAA Division II national championship team undertaking marks the start of a journey few would dare embark on.

Barber Strunk has to fill the shoes of a well respected 17 year coach who took the Sherwood program to new heights, putting her in prime position to feel the brunt of any slip in the Warriors dominance. While Sherwood former junior varsity coach admitted that concept isn lost on her, any remnants of anxiety are overshadowed by the excitement that surrounds the opportunity to put her spin on a program ripe with athletes just as passionate about, and dedicated to, softball as she is.

coach] Pat [Flanagan] was here for so long, at this point it about establishing my lines, Barber Strunk said. was worried at first that [the team] might be like, aren we doing things this way, or aren we doing things that way. I feel like I doing things the right way. is, according to Dejter.

Given Sherwood recent results it hard to imagine the Warriors need to change much, but Barber Strunk made it perfectly clear on the first day of practice this spring that she would not settle for a team set on cruise control, that there no room in the Sandy Spring program for complacency, Dejter said. Barber Strunk approach she said she implements many of the drills and conditioning she did in college is different than the traditional style Sherwood is used to, but Dejter said the change has helped to keep the Warriors on their toes.

They might actually need to be on guard defensively more so this season than in recent years. Despite returning the majority of its high scoring lineup, Sherwood did lose two of its most powerful hitters. While the Warriors are still more than capable of producing runs, the scoring differential might not be as much as it has been, Dejter said. Sherwood did win its 43rd consecutive game with Saturday 12 0 season opening victory against Thomas S. Wootton.

think [the changes are] good because we don want to get too comfortable and overconfident with what we have, it good to get a new view point, Dejter said. did just play in college a couple years ago and won a national championship so she has so much she able to teach us. It good because she does kind of knock us down a level. She really does push us. She been where we are and even better.

A catcher turned outfielder, Barber Strunk brought in her cousin, former Our Lady of Good Counsel ace pitcher Kim Bartlett, who primarily played third base at Methodist University, as an assistant coach. Between the two, they provide expertise in all areas of the diamond.

Student athletes can be defiant in the face of change, but Barber Strunk credibility and experience makes it difficult for the Warriors not to trust in everything she does, Dejter said. Perhaps even more important, the right handed hurler added, is the open channel of coach athlete communication Barber Strunk encourages. Her youth also helps her relatability, Dejter said.

you skeptical all you have to do is talk to her and she explains it fully, Dejter said. doesn try to hide anything, she knows exactly what she talking about. She explains everything and how it going to help us, I think it really good to have that openness.

Barber Strunk said her love for softball grew with the unity of her college team and that is a very important aspect of the game she aims to convey at Sherwood. The team has already come together in support of her efforts early, she and Dejter agreed. It no secret that all eyes are on Barber Strunk and the substantially sized shoes she has to fill. But the Warriors have rallied around someone who has already earned their respect.

think in the beginning she was a lot more nervous than now and especially the returning players, we definitely stepped in and were like, whatever you need from us, we here, we your team and we want to support you fully, Dejter said. really made this a team thing. She got such a passion for the game which everyone can see and it puts it on us, we want to impress her and we want to make her feel good about what she doing.

Vanbrugh Piazza, an original feature of the campus which was intended as a focal point for staff, students and visitors, is not in good shape, said vice chancellor Koen Lamberts.”The plan is to develop the piazza during the summer, so that it can once again feature prominently on open days and graduation days, and offer an attractive space for art installations, open air cinema, pop up activities and performances,” he said.”In addition to Greg’s generous donation, the project will also be supported by other benefactors and by the university.”A drop in consultation event will be held at the JB Morrell Library between 11pm and 2pm on Friday.Competitors will complete 80km by going four times round a 20km circuit in and around York on Saturday, May 2.

polo 3 cologne New Nike shoe with outer space theme causes havoc at stores

diamond supply un polo New Nike shoe with outer space theme causes havoc at stores

Sneaker fanatics who lined up outside stores overnight got their first crack Friday at a new Nike basketball shoe, getting so unruly in some cities that police were called to restore order.

More than 100 deputies in riot gear quelled a crowd in Orlando, where the release of the $220 Foamposite Galaxy coincides with this weekend’s NBA All Star Game. In at a mall in Hyattsville, Md., one person was arrested for disorderly conduct.

The shoes, part of a space themed collection, are a draw for so called “sneakerheads” who collect signature sports footgear and can resell it online at a marked up price, sometimes for hundreds more than retail.

Malls in Florida, New York and Maryland reported bringing in police to manage fans clamoring for the purple and blue shoes, which have starlike flecks of white. Some shoppers lucky enough to get their hands on a pair immediately posted them for sale on eBay at skyrocketing prices: $1,000 and up.

Orlando resident Gaby Llanos was in the crowd waiting to buy two pairs of the shoes when the rush started outside Florida Mall.

“It was complete havoc,” said Llanos,
polo 3 cologne New Nike shoe with outer space theme causes havoc at stores
23. “People were running and hiding in trees so the police wouldn’t find them.”

The shoes which are being sold at Nike stores and select Foot Lockers, House of Hoops and Foot Action stores are part of the Nike’s Foamposite line, which originally debuted in 1998. Their outer space theme is a nod to Florida, the host state for the All Star game, and the longtime launching pad for the nation’s space program.

Nike has relied for years on its limited edition sneakers to generate a lot of buzz with minimal advertising.

“They keep them very limited, they keep them very hot that way,” said Sam Poser, an analyst who covers Nike and the shoe industry.

During the past holiday season, Poser noted similar fights and incidents of vandalism broke out across the country over a retro model of Air Jordan sneakers. And he said the most recent violence likely won’t hurt Nike’s image.

“Some press is better than no press,” he said.

Sneakerheads collect anything from Air Jordans to shoes created for modern day basketball stars. They post videos online to show off their shoes.

“We talk sneakers like you would talk sports,” says Jesus Estrella, a website developer in suburban Chicago who has a site about “sneaker culture” that also advises readers how to avoid counterfeit shoes.

polo boots for boys New Balance shoe company opens world headquarters in Boston video

BOSTON New Balance, a shoes and athletic apparel company that saw $3.3 billion in sales last year, opened its new world headquarters on Thursday in the city’s Allston Brighton neighborhood.

Looking like a cruise ship or, if you prefer, a sneaker, pulling alongside the Massachusetts Turnpike, the 250,000 square foot headquarters sits next to commuter rail train tracks and Interstate 90, thirty miles away from its manufacturing facility in Lawrence.

The building is geared towards the Millennial generation, according to David Manfredi, founding principal of Elkus Manfredi Architects, which worked on the project.

Standing in the lobby, New Balance President and CEO Robert DeMartini pointed to the big screen behind him. It’s flashy and it looks great, he said, but the workspaces in the floors above are meant to be the real attraction, where employees can electronically collaborate with partners across the world in real time.

“This building doesn’t just house their business, it creates new open space, new park space, new sidewalks, new streets, new train station, so it’s much more than the confines of a building, it’s much more about making a little piece of a neighborhood here that will have benefits well beyond the edges of New Balance,” Manfredi said.

The cost of building the new headquarters, which is down the street from its former headquarters, was not immediately available.

New Balance is a private company. When asked if there is an initial public offering in the company’s future, DeMartini said, “We enjoy being private a lot.”

The building is part of the 15 acre “Boston Landing,” a real estate development that will also include the Boston Bruins practice facility, a 10 story office building, a new commuter rail station, as well as residences, 80,000 square feet of retail, and a track and field center, all on Guest Street.

The Bruins practice facility, known as the Warrior Ice Arena, is set to be finished next September. The commuter rail station, which New Balance is paying for, is expected to be complete by the end of 2016.

SALINE COUNTY, Ark. A landmark shoe tree is now a thing of the past in one Central community.

A sea of shoes, lying outside a storage unit along Sardis Road.

“I probably threw up about 15 myself,” says Ken Chaloner, a long time Sardis resident. One pair say “Just married,” each pair telling it own unique story.

“Well I heard a few of them,” says Michael Eckhardt, who lives across the street.

Micheal Eckhardt has lived across from the site of the former shoe tree for two years.”I took my whole shoe box and I didn want them so I threw them up there,” says Eckhardt.

Just like many in the small Saline County town, throwing a shoe,

is a right of passage. “We just driving down the road and sitting in the back of the truck and had our shoes out, ” says Ken Chaloner, “and throw it up, it gone.”

But to many it still a mystery of how the shoe tree got it name.”The first one I heard was that this shoe tree, whenever people would graduate from Bryant or Sheridan, they come out here, and throw their shoes out like back in the 50 says Eckhardt. “Then I heard that someone just randomly threw their shoes up there.”

Despite the rumors and how it all got started, Chaloner says, “It really just given people hope.”

Now all that left is a stump with one pair of shoes. “I hope they keep something alive here to make it known this was the spot,” says Eckhardt. With dozens more up the road,
