Here is to the Halloween weekend, and to taking a day out of the entire year to finally be dressed up with no qualms or reservations about what you want to be. This week, Freshness has started another cycle of our giveaways with a new partnership with Motorola, giving all a chance to win a new smartphone, the Motorola Droid 2,  to streamline your mobile life. rag & bone and Timberland unveiled the fruits of their partnership, showed us that rugged chic is not an impossible phrase, and Hello Kitty tied her bow around Reebok. Supra preps for the Holidays with a series of releases that crashed onto the sneaker shore almost twice a day like the tides, and Paul Rodriguez showed us what his mountain is like. Cristiano Ronaldo introduced the Safari print to his new Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II, and King James' new shoes, the Air Max LeBron VIII is now available in a new black, white and sport red. For those who are hiding indoors from the cold and watching the Halloween fanfare from afar, check out what happened this week besides the annual phenomenon of Ricky's popping up everywhere in New York City, and people letting go of their inhibitions and channeling their inner GAGA.
