adidas Will Award an NFL Prospect a Private Island If They Can Break This Record

Last year, adidas football offered up $1 million USD to any NFL prospect that could break the Combine’s 40-yard dash record of 4.24, held by both Rondel Menendez (1999) and Chris Johnson (2008). Unfortunately no one won, as the fastest time came from former Georgia running back Keith Marshall with a time of 4.31 seconds.

This year, the sportswear brand will continue the tradition, however instead of a cash prize, it will award the record-breaker with their own private island (the island in question has not been announced). All “terms and conditions” can be read here, but the most notable one is that the athlete must be wearing a pair of adidas’s 2017 adizero 5-Star 40 cleats during their run, and must sign with adidas football for the forthcoming season. That’s pretty cool of adidas, but what is a 20-some-year-old going to do with an island?

The NFL Combine runs from February 28 to March 6 in Indianapolis.

colette Plans Nike Collab, Snarkitecture Installation & More for 20th Anniversary Celebration

2017 marks colette’s 20th anniversary and you’d better bet that the Parisian boutique has some big things in store to celebrate the milestone. Things are set to kick off next month with a series of 20 limited edition collaborations. While the range has yet to be revealed, we do have a look at one of the offerings: an exclusive take on the Air Woven. Absent from the Swoosh’s lineup since it released a pack in celebration of the 2012 Euros (though it did equip the upper with a Free sole unit throughout 2013 and 2014), the kicks come in colette’s familiar blue and white combo from head to toe. Fans can also expect co-branded drops from the likes of Converse, Club75, Dr. Martens, Pedro Winter, and more while Snarkitecture will be bringing a version of its plastic ball-filled The Beach installation to Les Arts D√©coratifs as a part of the festivities.

Look for things to kick off on March 21 and stay tuned for more from the 20th anniversary endeavor.
