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: An unpredictable Skullcandy x Doritos collaboration, Satisfy Running’s Boston kit and Therabody’s newest innovative facial wellness device.
Therabody Theraface PRO
Therabody is known for their performance recovery — we’re big fans one the Theragun here at the IH office — and their newest product tackles facial wellness with an 8-in-1 device aptly named the Theraface PRO. Designed to massage, cleanse and reduce inflammation, it’s a unique situation to the age-old problem of taking care of your money maker.
Koio x Norm Architects Suede Sneaker
Italian suede, a collapsable heel…Koio x Norm Architects isn’t just a vision in minimalism, but a sleek and functional sneaker, as well.
Adidas X Allbirds 2.94 KG CO2E
Named after the minimal amount of carbon emissions created by each pair (the collaboration marks the first time Adidas has produced footwear under 3.0 KG of waste), the shoes feature at least 25% recycled materials, a bio-based midsole and ultralight textile upper, all of which play nicely with the design-forward sensibilities of Adidas.
Duovox Mate Pro
A night vision camera that’ll make midnight feel like noon; it’ll capture video in 2K and 5MP (in JPEG & RAW) images with resolutions of 3200×1800. An early review of this Kickstarter project suggests this works better as a portable security camera rather than a night cam.
Red Clay Face Mezcal Shot Glasses
In partnership with Mezcal for Life, this line of drinkware is handcrafted from red clay by the women of San Marcos Tlapazola village. Each sports a unique face — no two are alike.
Nomad Base One Max
This decidedly cool MagCharger, a weighted metal body with an elevated glass panel, provides up to 15W wireless charging speed for your Apple Watch or any Qi device. You will need to buy a 30W adapter, sold separately.
Bamford Peanuts “Joe Preppy” GMT Watch for Hodinkee
There are tons of Peanuts-branded watches out there, from Timex to Omega, and unfortunately the sheer ubiquity has made us more likely to yawn than reach for our wallets when Snoopy and the gang show up on dials. So hats off to Bamford and Hodinkee for coming up with a timepiece worthy of everyone’s favorite beagle. This limited-edition piece features Joe Preppy (not to be confused with Joe Cool) in a tweed jacket with his arms acting as the hour and minute hands, and Woodstock capping off the GMT hand. The 250-piece run is already sold out, so if you don’t want to miss out on these limited-edition models in the future, make sure to sign up for the Hodinkee newsletter.
Satisfy Running Boston Marathon Collection
Satisfy Running has been making waves in the running space for their performance-driven designs and fashion-forward styling, no more apparent than in their new kit designed for the upcoming Boston Marathon. Dubbed “The Electric Cowboy Boston Test,” the collection comes complete with tank, shorts, tights, even arm sleeves: everything you need to PR.
Huupe Smart Basketball Hoop
You’ve got a screen in your jeans, a screen in your car, a screen in your mirror. It was only a matter of time before they put one in your basketball hoop. Yes, Huupe is the totally real, not-an-SNL-skit “smart basketball hoop” of the future. Well, it’s hoping to be the future of basketball — with performance tracking, trainers inside the digital backboard and the ability to play against friends across the country — but once pre-orders start getting shipped, that’s when the real test begins. Will the supposedly weatherproof Huupe hold up in real-world conditions? You can put down a deposit now and find out.
Rémy Martin L’étape
Rèmy Marin’s collective commitment to “L’Exception Durable” (Sustainable Excellence) comes in the form on an exception Cognac Fine Champagne, L’etape. Just in time for Earth Day, L’étape is a unique champagne for a good cause.
Atmos x On Cloudnova “Midnight”
On’s newest collaboration taped Japanese label Atmos for an earth-centric, performance-infused sneaker, and boy is it something. Inspired by midnight with an indigo-dyed hemp upper, the upper is also stitched with monograms with the flags of both Japan and Switzerland as motifs, paying homage to atmos’ and On’s respective headquarters.
Skullcandy x Doritos Dime True Wireless Earbuds
Do you know what sounds good on 4/20? Doritos. But also, in a different sense: Skullcandy earbuds. In a meeting of, well, two completely different types of companies, the audio brand released Doritos Red and Doritos Orange colorways of their Dime earbuds. Says the brand: “These buds look as tasty as they sound, but don’t get carried away in the hazy holiday spirit and eat your earbuds (or stick a chip in your ear).” Not surprisingly, these sold out instantly this week.
Keepers Heart Whiskey Irish + American Blend
From the innovative O’Shaugnessy Distilling Co. in Minneapolis and led by former Jameson Master Distiller Brian Nation (in collaboration with David Perkins, founder of High West distillery), this new expression is a blend of Irish pot still whiskey, smooth Irish grain whiskey and American bourbon.
