Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of it. Today: the ultra-cushioned Hoka Bondi 8, a new batch of graphic tees from J.Crew and a collection of sauces and spreads from Heinz.
A joint effort with Sartoria Carrara and Stoffa, the Stoffa x NMWA F/W collection features environmentally friendly fabrics — undyed wool and deadstock fabrics — that still manage to look like a million bucks.
ASICS newest recovery tool comes in the form of a 3D-printed sandal, and we have to admit we’re intrigued. Designed with parametrical lattice construction, the funky see-through slide boats increased breathability and “zoned comfort.” The future is now!
J.Crew’s newest batch of graphic tees are all made in the USA, an added bonus on top of the already great hues and graphics in play. The “Lobster Roll” tee in particular — with its splashy “LUNCH” logo — is the perfect mix of classic dad tee energy and a modern, refreshed fit.
Liam Gallagher returns. And no, we’re not talking Oasis reunion. Instead, the British frontman has once again teamed up with Adidas for his second signature sneaker model, the LG II SPZL. Borrowing bits and bops from various favorites of the Gallagher brother’s through the years (Liam is a known Adi-obbsesor), the SPZL II features tons of detailing and a very sick “Endorsed by Liam Gallagher “portrait graphic on the tongue. Unfortunately, the sneaker released yesterday via the Adidas Confirmed app (July 22), so presumably, you’ll have to look to secondary markets to grab yourself a pair.
Specially designed for discrete tête-à-têtes with a one Mary Jane, the multi-use borosilicate glass Session One Hitter slips into any pocket or bag with ease, and it features a silicone tab to protect your fingers.
Pillowy is the only word that we can think of to aptly describe the Hoka Bondi 8. Stacked high with massive amounts of a newly introduced cushioning foam, each step in the Bondi is truly like walking on a cloud. An updated heel, padded tongue and fire colorway round out the running shoes’ new features.
Food writer, chef and internet personality Alison Roman has partnered with Food52 and Campari Group’s Champagne Lallier to bring you everything you need to host the “perfect picnique” this summer. That would include a virtual cooking class hosted by Roman on Thursday, August 4, plus a limited-edition gourmet kit featuring her recipe for the perfect summer dish — a French lentil salad overflowing with herbs — for the first 75 people who purchase tickets.
Insta360 ONE RS 1-Inch 360
Create immersive 360-degree video or 21MP still pics on this cool compact camera, a collaboration with Leica. It’s particularly great if you’re shooting in low light or you need some image stabilization.
Herman Miller Zeph Chair
Designed in conjunction with Studio 7.5, this rather affordable desk chair features “science-backed ergonomics in a single, flexible form” It’s customizable with special 3D “knits,” and it starts at under $500. You can sign up to be notified when it goes on sale in August.
Gobstomper “Jimmy Fallon Edition” Sneaker
Maybe the folks at MSCHF really did get burned out from all the controversy (and legal troubles with Nike) over their satan and Jesus shoes, because the company that’s made its name on buzzworthy, limited-edition, never-let-them-know-your-next-move products is now going…sorta wholesome? Their latest surprise is the Gobstomper, a proprietary skate-style shoe that changes color as it gets scuffed (like the Gobstopper candy), and for the release they’ve partnered with controversy-averse goofball Jimmy Fallon. The sneakers legitimately look great, but good luck getting a pair when they drop on July 28 at 1 p.m. ET on the MSCHF Sneakers app.
Inspired by one of the most demanding freshwater yacht races in the world (Port Huron to Mackinac Island), this is Shinola’s first watch with an automatic, single-eye chronograph regatta timer. It’s great for yacht races but really stands out for its square case and yellow colorway.
Back from the abyss after first launching in 1997, this retro runner returns with its original colors and refined mesh but now packs an upper made of premium leather. Still comfortable after 25 years thanks to its Grid technology, the Hurricane is a blast from the past reimagined for today.
Launched earlier this month, this condiment collection from the kings of ketchup includes infused honey sauces and crunch sauces designed to appeal to a polished palette. The infused honey includes flavors like hot chili and black truffle and the crunch sauces include varieties including roasted garlic and Mandarin orange miso. The collection is available on Amazon and other participating retailers starting at $6.75.
An addition to Spark’s line of proprietary charcoal briqs, this new line allows aspiring home bakers to effectively use their backyard grills as outdoor ovens.
