Nomad Multi-Tool – With every episode of Walking Dead, my list of survival goods increases. The latest object of my affection comes from Nomad, and it’s a survival multi-tool that fits easily in a back pocket. The Multie-Tool is lightweight, made from stainless steel, and packs a bottle opener, wrench, compass, flashlight, and blade. There’s also a pop-up scraper that can be adapted with different tool bits, and enough ferrocerium to spark a fire. Priced at $35, this multi-tool has already reached its Kickstarter goal and only leaves 7 days for pre-order.
Nike Air Max More Uptempo – Remember when Shawn Kemp banged on Scottie Pippen during Game Two of the 1996 NBA Finals? Pippen was posterized wearing these exact shoes.

The beautiful black nubuck upper arrives with the white “AIR” piping, and the full-length Air Max sole. Bring those fond memories home when these drop on April 16.
