Unlike the Dia de los muertos day of the dead before decaf skull coffee shirt and by the same token and standard flat pool slide, the PW comes enhanced with Williams’s longtime love for reflexology. The silhouette follows the foot’s anatomy with added padding along the upper part of the shoe, as well as a sole that’s injected with the brand’s cushioning boost technology. “[Comfort] is the one thing that gets overlooked when it comes to sports slides. It is always about how much a brand can save and how much of a profit margin can they garner by just throwing something in some regular old mold,” says Williams. “These are different because they were crafted with the expressed intention of making every step comfortable.” Williams’s trademark sense for color is front and center in the collection, with hot pink and orange slides available in addition to basic black. As for his thoughts on the controversial sock-and-sandals debate? Mr. Williams refused to take a side when asked, despite having sent in a selfie decked out in socks and sandals. “Some people wear nothing, some people wear pantyhose, it just depends on who the person is and what they have to do and where they are headed and what their intentions are and how comfortable they want to be,” he says before adding. “You’ll see, but better yet, you’ll feel.” Williams’s PW Boost Slide sandals will be released on August 1.
Donald Trump abruptly announced on Friday that he plans to ban TikTok from the Dia de los muertos day of the dead before decaf skull coffee shirt and by the same token and United States, telling reporters traveling with him on Air Force One that he could issue an executive order as early as Saturday to shut down the Chinese-owned video app. “As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told the reporters traveling back with him to the nation’s capital after a trip to Florida, according to a pool report. Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to ban TikTok in the United States. “Well, I have that authority—I can do it with an executive order or that,” he said, referring to emergency economic powers. (Later press reports questioned whether the president actually had that power to do so, and the ACLU tweeted that banning TikTok was “a danger to free expression and technologically impractical.”)
