KITH x Yankees – Ronnie Fieg and his KITH team put a twist to the classic Yankess baseball cap. Limited to strictly to 250 pieces, KITH takes the classic dark navy cap and throws on a gold plate across the crown. The Yankees logo is proudly featured on the rear and a 1996 World Series Championship patch adorns the side. The cap is set to be sold next week, but will not be available for pick-up until KITH opens their pop-up store at Yankee Stadium.
Lego Ferrari F40 – While the ’90s were the heyday for basketball, I look at the ’80s as the golden age of super cars. The Ferrari F40 typified the excess during the ’80s, and the last car designed by Enzo Ferrari has become one of the most collectible cars. It may be impossible to get your own, but Lego is going to hook you up. Arriving in the classic Ferrari red, the F40 arrives in all its high spoiler glory, and even have working pop-up headlights.
Sneakermob Cleaning Kit – Jason Markk is getting some competition as Sneakermob has entered the shoe-cleaning game. Instead of offering just a cleaning spray, Sneakermob is offering an entire kit with a spray that is 95% natural and completely biodegradable. By removing the harsh chemicals, Sneakermob can still keep your shoes clean without destroying your shoes. Along with the foaming spray is a brush with stiff bristles and a pair of shoetrees.
OFF WHITE c/o VIRGIL ABLOH 2015 Fall/Winter Letterman Jacket – I love letterman jackets as much anyone, and Virgil Abloh re-imagines the classic sports piece for fall and winter 2015. The chenille patches look pretty dope, and I think the striped panel sleeves show off the unique OFF WHITE aesthetic. However, the one thing I don’t understand is the cape. There’s a CAPE! WHY? It’s not even a functional cape that zips into a hood (another variation in the pantheon of varsity jackets). Still, it’s a interesting variety and you can always just cut off the ridiculous cape.

Nike Flyknit Racer Blue/Black/Volt – When it comes to basketball, there are about a million ways to show you’re hip to the game—but what about just chilling in the gym? The sneaker to be seen NOT RUNNING in is the Flyknit Racer, and Nike keeps coming with the sick colors. For summer, Nike goes dark and opts for a beautifully blue knit upper. These editions skip the white midsole and goes hard with the volt green and black. Like any Flyknit Racer, most of the good sizes are gone, so happy hunting.
CHIP – Besides genius there is another reason why Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are where they are – Access. They lived in affluent computers with easy access to computers, and the playing field is slowly being leveled. CHIP is the latest company to come out with a pint-sized processor that will rival the Raspberry Pi. For $9 the CHIP packs a 1GHz Allwinner R8 Cortex A8 processor with a built-in Mali400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of flash storage. There’s enough power in this little chip to run LibreOffice, a Chromeium browser, and allows the enthusiast to do some programming.
Dime x Alltimers – With dudes collecting skateboard decks, it’s time to give some of this action to the girls. Montreal’s Dime knows what whets the ladies’ appetite and has teamed up with Alltimers to create a glorious Ryan Gosling skateboard deck. The back graphic is a full-bodied image of the popular actor, and Alltimers went the extra mile to create a silhouette. Look for the deck to drop next Wednesday, July 15.
adidas x Parley for the Oceans – A lot of garbage goes into our oceans, but Parley for the Oceans has a plan. By teaming up with adidas, the two brands have created a sneaker made from sea trash. The uppers of this casual runner is made entirely of yarns and filaments reclaimed and recycled from ocean waste. Noticeably missing from this lightweight runner are the famous three stripes, but the lightweight uppers does pay homage to the cool waves of the ocean.
