According to Footwear News, Adidas has just signed a deal that will see the company in possession of the right equipment to automate customized shoe production. This equipment will go into the creation of a factory based in Germany that will design and make custom shoe components. This move is also the latest in a slow but steady progression into establishing a factory on American soil. The company plans to base its first American production facility on this Germany location — aptly dubbed Speedfactory.

One of K-Swiss's latest launches comes in the form of a collaboration with American designer Billy Reid. The pair are dropping two styles of the Arlington silhouette, one as a hi-top and another as a low. Waxed suede uppers and pigskin linings make them ideal for fall. You can get them online today with prices starting at $175.

If the dances from Drake’s latest video weren’t enough to make you feel close to the Toronto artist, maybe you should get a pair of kicks he owns.  Snap up his Nike Sneakerboots from the “Hotline Bling” for $89.99 now.
