A brand new pair of Nike Air Force 1 Lows are being released which are inspired by our very own city.
The new trainers use the iconic Manchester bee logo and they look mint.
The Mancunian worker bee – the coat of arms for our city for over 150 years – can be spotted all over Manchester from buildings to bins, and now it will be on some shiny new Nike shoes.
The Manchester bee represents the city’s hardworking spirit and tireless work ethic, as well as reflecting how the city and the people who reside here have a strong sense of unity.
The worker bee can be found on the side of the heel of the light-tan shoes, with a stamped honeycomb pattern on the medial side.
The bee theme continues on the tongue with a mesh lining loosely resembling honeycomb.
The honey-colour nubuck base has alternating grainy leather panels, with contrasting white midsole and grey rubber outer sole.
Then there’s the famous swoosh in black on the side.
The final nod to our great city is an ‘0161’ tag on the side of the tongue.
Will you be repping a pair around the city?
Although there’s not much info about their release, it’s being reported they’ll be hitting Nike.com in the coming weeks.
They’ll also likely be sold at various retailers around the city, so keep your eyes peeled.

Ben & Jerry’s release their first ever ice cream on a stick and it looks incredible
The ‘Peace Pop’ is the first ever ice cream on a stick from Ben & Jerry’s
Ben & Jerry’s brand new ice cream treat comes on a stick and fans can’t wait to try it.
The ‘Peace Pop’ is the first ever ice cream on a stick from the ice cream kings, Ben & Jerry’s. It features Fairtrade vanilla ice cream complete with chocolate chips and even a cookie dough-inspired centre.
The whole thing is then coated in smooth chocolate and dunked onto a stick so you can enjoy on the go.
It’s been described as beneficial as you won’t need to get a bowl, spoon or do washing up. But we all know you just dig right into the tub of B&J’s anyway, so the real benefit is having this while you do other things, like go on your daily allowed walk.
The new ice cream will be hitting the freezers in Co-op later this month, and will be £2.20 each or £4 for a pack of three.
Flavour guru Josine Nohlmans said: “We know people love our cookie dough like their own family or pets.
“So we reimagined it so they never need to leave home without it. Now they can walk their puppy AND enjoy Ben & Jerry’s.”
If you can’t wait, Ben & Jerry’s released the cookie dough recipe so you can remake the Cookie Dough Chunks at home. Perfect lockdown distraction!
You can now play Cards Against Humanity for free online with your mates in lockdown
Virtual fun is back for the new lockdown
You can now play a virtual game of Cards Against Humanity to help you through the third lockdown.
Unfortunately, as we’re flung into a third national lockdown, virtual quizzes and games look like they might be making a come back. Just when you thought you’d seen the last of Zoom-based organised fun!
The good news is that you can now play Cards Against Humanity with your friends via the internet, in the comfort of your own home, even in your pyjamas if you want.
It’s super easy to play too and it’s free!
One person in your friendship group needs to head to playingcards.io and ‘create room’ to set up the virtual game.
Then you simply share the code with all the friends you want to play with so you can all see each others moves.
The rules are the same as a real life game of Cards Against Humanity – fill in the blanks of a statement card in the most hurtful, unacceptable and rude way you can. And all have a laugh about it.
If Cards Against Humanity isn’t for you, or perhaps you just fancy a family game that involves children, you can instead make your own game or play others such as Go Fish, Checkers, Crazy Eights and Match Up.
Lockdown fun is BACK!
