…It’s Things Thursday: CelebriDucks?

CelebriDucks

CelebriDucks are rubber ducks that have been modeled after the duck-ized icons of film, music, athletics and history. From celebrities and famous figures to mascots, athletes, heros and more, over 200 different CelebriDucks have been created, and no one is immune to duck-itization.

CelebriDucks Samples

Each limited edition duck comes in its own container, and can be kept as a collector’s item or floated in the bath for a little extra fun.

…The Olympics have got sole?

Nike Sole Materials

Nike has designed an entire line of custom shoes for each sport in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

While that doesn’t seem like anything special, keep in mind that in addition to the usual sports like Track and Field and Basketball, sports like Gymnastics, Wushu, Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Taekwondo, Equestrian, and Fencing also need unique shoes to enhance the athlete’s abilities.

For a full rundown, check out NOTCOT for a look at both the shoes, and the unique sole materials that help each athlete perform at their peak.

…It’s Things Thursday: Starbury shoes?

Starbury

Starbury shoes are Stephon Marbury’s attempt to bring some sanity back to the athlete endorsed shoe market.

Instead of selling $150+ shoes to kids that can’t afford them, Starburys are just $14.98 a pair, and feature the same style and the same quality as their more expensive brethren.

It’s impressive to see a star using his power for good, so I wish Stephon the best.
