Here at stupidDOPE, we dig hockey almost as much as adidas. So when we heard about the NHL handling business in Vegas, we got airborne ASAP to catch all the action. On June 20, 2017, The National Hockey League (NHL®) and adidas showcased the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys & uniforms for all 31 NHL teams that are set to melt the ice with the 2017-18 season. With special guests like Desiigner, comedian Russell Peters, and Connor McDavid, the night unfolded in true adidas fashion. Speaking on the craftsmanship of the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys, Dom Fillion (adidas Head of Apparel) details on how he and his team of designers took the hockey uniform system and hockey jersey silhouette to new heights by improving fit, touch & lightweight structure. Setting the bar higher than anyone else in hockey apparel, adidas has made the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey lighter, cooler and more resilient by utilizing new cresting materials that make the new jersey up to 19% lighter in comparison to the current NHL Jersey. The ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey features adidas Clima® technology embedded in the fabrics to present breathability to players. Pair those new attributes with construction that make their fabrics up to 27% stronger in burst testing & up to 72% tougher in abrasion testing, and you've got yourself a jersey thatll make you say “WHAT THE PUCK”'!?! The ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys are created with elite performance and supreme aesthetics in mind, so try to get your favorite team's apparel quicker than Crosby can zip by his competitors!

Push Your Limits with K2's Unnatural Skate! | Video & Review

There comes a time in many skaters lives when going fast needs to be paired with an self-assertive notion to nudge the limits of blading past conventional limits. Luckily for us, the most dope folks at K2 recently unleashed the Unnatural aggressive inline skate. With nods from regional blading powerhouses like Erik Bill, Manuel Rodriguez, Jimmy Spetz, & Gaby Valasquez, the Unnatural skate is primed for athletes who vie for both solid construction and a great looking aesthetic. Formed flawlessly around a leather-like upper, the Unnatural comes ready to roll right out the box with durable 60mm wheels and a strengthened SoftBoot® structure that spans secure foot comfort when you factor in the interchangeable powerstrap and ratchet buckle cuff closure. A wholly redesigned 1-piece soul integrated with Teflon® inserts help to make each grind faster and smoother for the skater. It's also pretty fly that the Unnatural skate also comes stock with K2's newly designed UFS-compliant frame. The frame can be ridden flat or rockered without fear of getting stuck on H-Block maneuvers, thanks to their wide groove. All in all, a very crispy skate, and we here at stupidDOPE encourage you to try out a pair ASAP! Can't wait to see what the future holds for the K2 Skate Division!

Keep your Spirits Lit with Iowa Distilling Company's Liqour Arsenal! | Video58s

Keep your Spirits Lit with Iowa Distilling Company's Liqour Arsenal! | Video

When it comes to whiskey, we here at stupidDOPE are filled with the spirit of good old-fashioned distilleries. While trucking it across the state of Iowa, we were drawn to the small town of Cumming after hearing through the grapevine that Iowa Distilling Company crafts dope booze. Nestled in the heart of corn country, Iowa Distilling Company keeps it local with a refined taste. They prefer quality over quantity, as they opt to locally source their grain, and keep computer-controlled machinery out of the equation. Working hard to preserve the OG method of distilling, Iowa Distilling Company also donates the grain solids to local farmers for livestock feed. We can dig it. We also really dig two of their most wanted spirits: Prairie Fire; Iowa's cinnamon whiskey. Their flagship product packs a punch with 35% alc/vol (70 proof) It's double-distilled whiskey for those who can stand the heat. Straight Bourbon Whiskey; “high rye” This excellently crafted 90 Proof liquor is fermented using locally sourced corn, rye, and barley mash bill. Look for plenty of spice in this whiskey, as it is aged at least two years in full-sized 53 gallon, Char #4, American White Oak casks. From seed to table, Iowa Distilling Company's Straight Bourbon Whiskey is mashed, fermented, distilled & aged on-site. For those interested in receiving exclusive access to the first bottles from this craft distillery, be sure to join Iowa Distilling Company's Bourbon Club & Distillery Rewards program. Members get email notifications of bourbon releases, inner access to the first bottles released, rewards for retail purchases, Bourbon Club t-shirts, & even your name on an IDC barrel that they permanently keep on display. Check the above video for a look into Iowa's premier craft distillery and leave your comments at the drop. Much love to letsruntrack for his most dope music.
