After a string of bad projects the LEGO brand was dying, but Star Wars was finally coming on board and things were looking up. After 15 years of re-structuring and strategy, LEGO is a powerhouse and much of it’s success is due to the extensive collection with Star Wars. Both teams worked tirelessly to translate the most minute details on screen into the LEGO world. The updated Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary is a nerd’s delight. The book chronicles the nitty-gritty details that took Star Wars from movie magic to 3-dimensional building blocks.

adidas Pure Boost Spring/Summer 2014 – As a casual runner, there isn’t a shoe I look forward to trying out more than the adidas Pure Boost. During races I reach for the Mizunos, but when it comes to lounging, Nike and their Flyknit, Free, and Roshe take up most of the closet space. However, the Pure Boost has piqued my interest. It follows the “less is more” strategy and arrives with a four-way stretch breathable upper with no sock linter. The heel is made from a sustainable luxury fiber that adidas has dubbed TIRENINA, and it is supposed to be great at providing feedback without compromising shock absorption. The Pure Boost is also incredibly light at about 8.3 ounces. Gym rats looking for the latest sneaker can look forward to the release of the Pure Boost and its collection of Summer colors tomorrow, May 14.
