Nike's New Material Makes Use of Leather Scraps [Quartz]
Nike has just developed a new sustainable textile for its sneakers, a leather material they're calling FlyLeather. The textile is produced from a combination of old leather scraps which have been discarded (because of an animal hide's irregular shape, there is often a great deal of waste) and a polyester material. While the product isn't 100 percent leather, it has the look and feel of the real deal, though time will tell if it ages as well. The Tennis Classic is the first sneaker made with FlyLeather, and was unveiled Monday during Climate Week in New York City. The sneaker is now available at Nike's SoHo store and online for $85.

Olivia Munn Lost Money on Her Ocean's Eight Cameo [Jezebel]
In a recent radio interview with Entertainment Weekly, Olivia Munn revealed that she actually lost money on her cameo in the upcoming Ocean's Eight, which stars Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway as thieves attempting to pull off a heist at Anna Wintour's Met Gala. Munn said that she paid her for her own hair, makeup and dress for her scene, but when she went to submit her bill, a producer told her, "‘Oh, no, the bills come right back to you.'" The actress isn't bitter, however. Munn added of her role in the film, "[But I’m] just as excited about it as everybody else."
