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 them. Today: A colorful Teva collab, a celebratory Scotch and a Yeti for our day-saving espresso.
Johnnie Walker Legendary Eight
How do you celebrate a 200th anniversary? If you’ve made it that long, you do it with Scotch. Really, really expensive Scotch. Leading whisky maker Johnnie Walker is celebrating its bicentennial with four new limited-edition releases. A highlight: Blue Label Legendary Eight, crafted with whisky hand-selected from eight distilleries that all existed in 1820, including long-closed “ghost” distilleries. More info on all the new releases here.
Teva x Cotopaxi Collection
As we made clear earlier this week, your wardrobe needs more color. Outdoor brands Teva and Cotopaxi have always offered kaleidoscopic options on their own, but when they teamed up for this new limited-edition collection, they busted out the whole pack of highlighters. The fresh take on Teva’s classic Original Universal sandal and Cotopaxi’s Teca windbreaker use both recycled and upcycled materials, and as part of the collab, both companies are supporting a grant to the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood to the tune of $40K. The gear, however, is all under $100.
Natural Deo – Aspen Air
If you’ve ever dreamed of your pits smelling and feeling like the cool, fresh Aspen air, today’s your day. Oars + Alps all-natural, aluminum-free deodorant is now available in “Aspen Air” which features notes of cedarwood, pine and oakmoss swirl with frosted citrus and a hint of wildflowers.
F!ve Drinks Co Quarantine Pack
Canned cocktails are improving, which is a great idea to think about as you’re stuck in a room for two weeks during your travels as part of a mandated quarantine. But this boozy brand wants to help. Their new 14-pack of margaritas, G&Ts, Moscow Mules, etc. is only available to U.S. residents who are traveling from any state or D.C. to any airport located in New York State (NYS).
ASICS Runners Face Cover
ASCIS is releasing a face mask designed specifically with runners in mind. The Runners Face Cover is made out of 31% recycled materials, features a water-repellent exterior and, most importantly, has vents that will actually allow you to breathe while you run. The $50 mask will be available some time in September, so keep an eye out and pick one up if you worry about passing out mid-run.
Dickies x New York Sunshine x Philadelphia 76ers Collab
Whatever your thoughts are on the Philadelphia 76ers, you can’t deny that the basketball franchise has some serious swag, and now the team has partnered with Dickies and streetwear brand New York Sunshine for a super dope limited-edition capsule collection. The line will feature some iconic Dickies’ products — coveralls, work shirts, painter’s pants, and long and short-sleeved tees — that feature custom 76ers x New York Sunshine artwork designed by New York Sunshine’s Creative Director John Margaritis. The collection pays homage to the 76ers maintenance team and the other hardworking ground-level workers who keep the stadium running smoothly. The collection will officially launch on Saturday, August 1 at 10 am EST, exclusively on Lapstone & Hammer and New York Sunshine, and merchandise proceeds will benefit the Urban Affairs Coalition.
Master & Dynamic for BAPE
Master & Dynamic, makers of some of our favorite high-quality audio products, have collaborated with Japanese street style brand BAPE (A Bathing Ape) to create a collection of limited-edition headphones and earphones. Master & Dynamic’s highly-coveted MW65 Active Noise-Canceling Wireless Headphones and MW07 PLUS True Wireless Earphones will be available in BAPE’s signature green camouflage and a new Studio35 camouflage co-designed with Master & Dynamic Partner Kevin Durant.
YETI Rambler 10 oz. Tumbler
Believe us, we understand just how vital those one or two or five shots of espresso are to become a functioning human being. And clearly so does YETI, who just released the Rambler 10 oz. Tumbler — a condensed Rambler designed specifically to keep your espresso shots at the perfect temperature. Like all of YETI’s Rambler Drinkware, the 10 oz. is made with incredibly durable stainless steel and features that double-wall vacuum insulation we all know and love.
Give the 649s a break and ride out the last months of summer with the brand’s new PO2471S style. The sunglasses are a departure from the brow-heavy silhouettes of the 649 and 714, and offer a smaller wire frame that still manages to retain the classic vintage feel integral to the brand. Available in seven colors, from Honey to Grey to classic Black, they’re the ideal option for someone looking to venture outside of their comfort zone without completely sacrificing their style in the process, all the while continuing to remain timeless. You’ll never want to take them off, even beyond the dying days of summer.
GoPro Lifestyle Gear
GoPro has just released a ton of adventure-ready lifestyle gear to go with your adventure-ready GoPro camera. The collection includes everything from everyday carry bags to hardworking duffels and backpacks, durable camera cases, snapback hats and insulated water bottles.
PUMA has just released the silhouette for their insanely colorful RS-Fast Sneaker. While the shoe embodies some serious early aughts vibes, it also includes more futuristic elements like a bright color palette and textured details. All three eye-catching colorways are set to drop August 1 on PUMA’s website.
Zeltini Z-Triton Tricycle-Boat-Camper
The team at Latvia’s Zeltini is doing the country proud with the release of the Z-Triton, an all-in-one, eco-friendly tricycle, boat and camper. Sure, it might be hard getting your hands on one since they’re currently in the production process in, uh, Latvia, but we’d say it’s worth the hassle. (And if you’ve got some extra cash sitting around, we certainly wouldn’t mind if you helped bring the company Stateside.)
