Whats Kickin’

There are a lot of shoes in the world. There are many different styles, colors, different shapes, and a whole bunch of different levels of comfort. Style plays a pretty big part when buying shoes, but the thing that people look for the most in shoes and what they pay so much for is comfort. This is why only certain shoe companies right now are running the shoe game for example Adidas and Nike are the main brands. Even though the shoes are a little on the more expensive side, they are the most comfortable.

Nike has some pretty comfortable shoes, they have jordans, nike flyknits, and many other shoes. But the main source of comfort and the ones people are talking the most about right now are the Nike vapormax, they have a pretty big price point of $190 USD. But putting the price aside they have air bubbles which makes it super cushiony, bouncy, and just all around comfortable.

Adidas are really killing the game right now because they have this technology called boost.  Everybody wants to buy these shoes because all of the good feedback that they have been getting. They really blew up after rapper Kanye West was wearing them on stage. Since then they have been the most popular company and have been rolling out many different styles and colourways. Adidas are finally getting all the recognition they deserve.

The varsity volleyball team faced school rivals, the Boron bobcats on Tuesday September 5th. “The first game the team started out strong we just let them get in our heads” coach Stanford said. It was a hard fought game but in the end it resulted in a 25-19 loss.

The second game started out the same way, with desert in the lead. As boron began shortening the lead desert kept pushing. The game got very intense towards the end but desert pulled through to win it 25-17.

Boron finished out the game by winning the last two sets. “We fought hard but in the end it was the mistakes that got us.” Coach Stanford said when asked how he thought the team did in the end. Desert will play Lone Pine high school on Tuesday September 12th at Lone Pine.

Junior High Soccer Games

We talked to some of our Desert jr high school soccer players, Samuel Clark, Paolina Ramos, and Karla Carrillo. We asked them what do you like about soccer games.

Samuel Clark replied, “Soccer games are cool because you could compete against other teams, and you could see how good you are and getting by the intensity of the game, plus we would get food on the way back from the games.”

Karla Carrillo replied,  “In a game, your team has to work together to be better and games are a good experience and it helps u get better at the game.”

Paolina Ramos replied, “You can learn from games by being respectful to the other teams and you can learn new tricks by practicing and comparing the way you play in games.”
