Supreme Spring/Summer 2016 – Supreme’s collection for Spring and Summer has just been announced and there is something for everyone; because it’s massive. Long gone are the days of graphic T-shirts and thick CYC Canadian fleece. We’re talking button-downs, knits, jerseys, hoodies, tees, outerwear, bottoms, headwear, and fire extinguishers. From wild and loud prints to the many iterations of the Supreme logo plastered across the chest, this collection is what Supreme fans wanted. Look for it all to drop this Thursday, with the online store to reopen February 26.
Public School x Jordan – The Air Jordan 10 is one of the more slept on Jordans. It’s often remembered as the one that came before the 11s, but for a sneakerhead, it is still a beautiful sneaker. A lot of the simplicity of the 10 made its way to the 11, and for this Public School collaboration, the premium clothing brand takes advantage by using a bright red tonal upper. A little bit of black is used for contrast, and it is the soles that really make it a worthy exclusive. Along the sole, the achievements by Jordan are replaced by the awards Public School has received over the years.
Leatherman Tread QM1 Watch – It may not be the best-looking option over your wrist, but the truth is that the Leatherman Tread QM1 Watch can save your life. Following in the footsteps of the bracelet-only option is the multi-tool bracelet with a watch attached. The Swiss-made timepiece has a simple luminous dial, but its the bracelet that deserves all the attention. This simple metal bracelet can be taken apart to offer a variety of drivers, wrenches, a glass breaker, a cutting hook, and the always essential bottle opener.
Oakley X Metal Collection – Oakley’s X Metal collection first debuted across Tom Cruise’s face for Mission Impossible 2. For a few years, the frames did exceptionally well, but the trend toward classic design has left little room for the special metal alloys. The time has come for Oakley to resurrect the X Metal line and the Lake Forest based company kicks things off with two new sunglasses that combine lightweight aerospace-grade aluminum alloy and their trademark O Matter frame material.
Back to the Future DeLorean Case – Bandai is killing it with these retro-inspired iPhone 6 cases. Last time it was the Batmobile, and this time they went straight for the jugular with the Delorean from Back to The Future. Dr. Emmett Brown’s trusty whip is molded in detail with folding hover wheels, and LED lights that light up the bumper. The case also comes with a movable part that conceals and protects the phone’s camera.
Nike Tech Aeroshield – Nike’s Windrunner has been around for decades, and that classic styling never gets old. Look for this old favorite to be updated as the Tech Aeroshield. This lightweight running jacket is made for the brisk Spring weather with flocked circles, and a laser-cut perforation that promotes airflow. The exterior is treated with DWR coating to protect you from wind, rain, and mositure, while the textured back lining holds in warm air. The shoulders and sleeves have been upgraded to allow a more natural, and wider range of motion, and there is a cable port so tunes can be blasting while you aim for a new PR.
adidas Stan Smith – While I had my share of White-White Air Force Ones, the real White-Whites for me were always the Stan Smith. The leather was much softer, and the slimmer silhouette made it perfect for nearly everything. The adidas Stan Smith returns and while the uppers still use that clean white base, the bottoms arrive with a speckled gum outsole. The slight change isn’t going to deter Stan Smith fans, and it provides a nice contrast to a solid tennis sneaker.
LG Watch Urbane – The latest smartwatch from LG excels because it doesn’t look like a smartwatch. The Korean conglomerate went for the look of a traditional watch and houses a Snapdragon processor, and the 1.3 inch screen in a beautiful rosegold case. Don’t let the small size full you because the Urban still comes with gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, barometer, and heart rate monitor. The watch will come paired with a leather band, but more options will be made available soon.
