I'm sure it is not just me. It is no longer enough for sports shoes we wear to be performance-driven or made for a specific workout. We don't just put on our shoes to the gym; we wear them EVERYWHERE! Especially with the continued popularity of athleisure, many of us wear our shoes from workouts to play and vice versa. Why not? It's so much more convenient, not to mention that our sportswear is looking so good nowadays.
The manufacturers have caught on to the needs of people like you and me. Sports shoes are so fashion-forward nowadays that we are donning them when we are out and about instead of wearing them solely for workout purposes. It can be a supermarket run, walking your dog or catching up with a friend. Sneakers have become sort of de rigueur in many of our lives. And why not when these good looking sports shoes are so much more comfy and durable?

The United States will require thousands of border agents to wear body cameras, according to two officials and government documents, a major operational change that could increase oversight of agents and also help capture criminal activity. The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups have called on border patrol to use the cameras to improve accountability in the wake of several high-profile fatal shootings by law enforcement over the past decade. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, stressed that agents should have access to the footage, including when an agent is accused of wrongdoing.
Flash flooding in much of Colorado’s high country on Tuesday, August 3, had a dramatic effect on the color of the Fryingpan River in Basalt, Colorado.The National Weather Service issued a flash food alert for Pitkin County Wednesday morning and warned that wildfire burn scar areas were at an increased risk of flooding.Video by Basalt resident Barry Stevenson shows the confluence of the Fryingpan River and the larger Roaring Fork River.The brown water of the Fryingpan River is seen in stark contrast with the Roaring Fork River, as the two-toned water masses flow side-by-side before fully mixing several hundred yards downstream.Stevenson attributed the brown water to burn scar runoff and compared the scene to Willy Wonka’s famous chocolate river.

Macao authorities on Wednesday ordered the closure of entertainment venues but not casinos, and coronavirus tests for its 600,000 residents, after the gambling city confirmed four new infections. Macao Chief Executive Ho Iat-seng said at a news conference that if there are no new infections in the next 14 days, normal economic activities will resume. Macao has reported only 59 coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, with no deaths.
Steelmakers need to take urgent action on producing less carbon in order to meet the Paris Agreement on climate change, investors managing $55 trillion in assets said on Wednesday. Emissions from steel production account for 9% of the global total and must fall 29% by 2030 and 91% by 2050 to meet the net zero scenario laid out by the International Energy Agency in May, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change said. The IIGCC, as part of the Climate Action 100+ initiative, said in a statement that while it was technically feasible to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, the steel industry was being too slow to act.
Italy produced an electrifying finish to beat favourites Denmark for gold in a thrilling men's team pursuit final at the Izu Velodrome on Wednesday. Powered home by Filippo Ganna, they clawed back almost a second in the closing laps to claim victory in another world record, having also lowered it on Tuesday. Italy celebrated wildly at the finish as they ended their country's long wait for an Olympic gold medal in the men's team pursuit, having won their record seventh in 1960.
Toyota posted record quarterly earnings on Wednesday (August 4). The world's biggest automaker saw operating profits hit $9.15 billion. That was ahead of analyst forecasts. The rebound came as sales recovered to almost pre-crisis levels. Favourable foreign-exchange movements also helped. But Toyota held off on raising its outlook for the year. Rising prices for raw materials are one reason. The global chip shortage is also a drag. Though Toyota has enjoyed some protection thanks to business continuity plans developed after the giant Fukushima earthquake in 2011. They require suppliers to stockpile up to six months' supply of chips. The health crisis also remains a worry. Last month Toyota had to suspend output at three plants in Thailand as crisis-related disruption caused parts to run short. Shares in the firm closed lower on the day, with some investors disappointed by its cautious outlook.
