Nike Air Max 95 “Poison Green”

Nice Kicks - Mon, 2014-07-28 16:25

The iconic Nike Air Max 95 made a name for itself almost 20 years ago with its neon detailing, and now the latest style continues the tradition of bright accent colors with a jolt of its own. Utilizing a neutral upper that fades in a gradient flow from white to black, top to bottom, the Nike Air Max 95 “Poison Green” stands out with its bold midsole. Matching the small Swoosh towards the back and name tag on the tongue, the entire full-length midsole is painted in poison green to pop from the quiet base. Watch for these to drop on August 2nd, but pre-order a pair today from atmos.

HYPEBEAST Eats: Badmaash Is Not Your Average Indian Restaurant

Hyperbeast - Mon, 2014-07-28 14:12

Forgoing intricate tapestries, buffet tables and the soft mood lighting many have come to associate with Indian restaurants, Badmaash serves up Indian cuisine with a whole new attitude that is at once approachable and badass. Launched by Pawan Mahendro and his sons Nakul and Arjun, the LA-based Indian gastropub serves up traditional flavors with a bit of modern foodie innovation. Visitors can look forward to original signatures like a lamb burger with paprika mayo washed down with bottles of Thums Up — India's answer to Coca Cola.

Having grown up in Toronto, the Badmaash boys show some special love for their cross-cultural upbringing with their special Chicken Tikka Poutine, which combines crispy fries tossed in paprika masala and chicken tikka cooked in a clay tandoor oven. On the decor side, Badmaash keeps its interior simple and industrial, though vintage Bollywood posters and a pop-art Ghandi mural add just a touch of East Indian flair.

To learn more about Badmaash and plan your visit, head over to the restaurant website.
