adidas Originals Summer ZX Flux Slip-On – adidas has a winner on their hands with the ZX Flux, and as summer approaches, it’s time for a new iteration.

The smartphone is slated to run Andoid’s Lollipop and will arrive with a familiar keyboard that slides out.
Buck Mason – The quintessential piece in any wardrobe is the T-shirt, and if you’re looking for something new then give Buck Mason a look. Instead of the usual straight cut at the waist, Buck Mason employs a shirttail (swoop) to give the traditional tee a sporty look. Besides the sartorial enhancements, Buck Mason also believes keeping manufacturing and sourcing at home, and does everything in the US. Their latest Venice tee is made from thick 4.5 ounce cotton that has been washed to make it ultra comfortable, and to give it a vintage distressed look. At $32, Buck Mason tees won’t break the bank, and they’re different from the rest.

The Huarache Light is one of the best shoes for this summer heat, but the gum outsole makes it nearly perfect.
