Cariuma OCA Low Stripe - Off White Canvas
From our partner
Meet our new go-to white sneaker, a pair that can be styled up or down for all occasions: the Cariuma OCA. The direct-to-consumer brand from Rio outwits its competitors in styling — the white OCA pairs just as well with an unconstructed suit as vacation shorts. But it’s what you don’t see that sets them apart: a proprietary hybrid insole for maximum comfort, recycled packaging and carbon-neutral shipping. In other words, it’s the white sneaker of the future. And right now, our readers can get $20 off with the code INSIDEHOOK.
The wearables brand just released a few new fitness trackers (Inspire, Inspire HR), armed with the usual bells and whistles but at a much more competitive price point — they’re under $100, but they still offer heart-rate monitors, sleep tracking, multiple exercise modes, message and social media updates, etc.
Apollo 15 became the fourth manned mission to land on the moon, and Commander David Scott deboarded wearing the watch you see above: a Bulova Chronograph with an Accutron Quartz movement. For obvious reasons, Bulova continues to make a faithful recreation of the black “lunar” chronograph, and it's currently on sale at Amazon for less than half the retail price.
