Vans Half-Cab Tobacco – Nike recently borrowed the classic wheat colorway from Timberland on a series of their classics, but it’s the Half-Cab from Vans that has really caught my attention. The vintage half-cut skate sneaker doesn’t just undergo a color change, Vans also updating the materials. This special Tobacco colorway will use suede and leather detailing, along with brass eyelets and a matching vulcanized tonal sole. The Tobacco Half-Cabs really capture the workwear aesthetic that is associated with Timberlands, and by using texture to highlight the color it really succeeds on many levels. Look for the pair to be available now at select Vans retailers.
Push Band – There are a lot of activity trackers on the market, but the Push Band seeks to be something different. Instead of just measuring your performance in the weight room, the Push Band gives you feedback. By measuring power and velocity throughout your gym session, the Push Band is able to determine intensity and can eventually recommend ways for you to improve. The Push Band has caught the attention of a few professional athletes and can be pre-ordered for $189.
