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 fantastic collaboration between Todd Snyder and New Balance, a show-stopping new collection from Nike Golf, and a reminder from clothing brand Noah that Fishbone was an awesome band.

Outerknown Woolaroo Trunks

Trunks made from 100% Australian merino wool — a natural, renewable, and biodegradable fiber sourced from sheep which will eventually decompose and release nutrients back into the earth. You know if there’s still one left.

Nike’s U.S. Open Collection

For this year’s U.S. Open at the famed Pebble Beach, Nike dropped a collection of apparel featuring pastel floral prints and shoes featuring denim accents — a reference (and a subtle fuck you) to Pebble’s “No Denim Allowed” policy.

Todd Snyder + New Balance Love 997

The most recent collaboration between New Balance and Todd Snyder is a super summery take on the 997, with dusty shades of pink, green and blue suede surrounding a base of white leather. They’re sold out for now, but fingers crossed for a restock.

GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Headset

We don’t play video games because we’re grownups, and, thus, we don’t really know what makes for a good gaming headset. But we know Sennheiser makes great headphones for listening to music, and we figure it can’t be all that hard to tack on some stupid microphone so you can talk shit to the 12-year-olds you “compete” against. (Kidding. You do you.)

Ikea RÅVAROR Collection

Ikea knows living spaces are getting smaller, so they gave us urban dwellers a new collection to pack and unpack our traveling homes with ease. Thanks, Sweden.

Rowing Blazers x Beams Plus

A collaboration between the new-school preps at Rowing Blazers and the casual wear nostalgics at Beams Plus inspired by “vintage yacht racing.” Short shorts, polos, a fantastic insignia, and lots of blue and yellow. Pricey, but cool as hell.

Nike x Stranger Things

Nike and Netflix want you to step in and step back to the summer of 1985 with the Nike x Stranger Things collection, featuring Hawkins High apparel and six different styles of sneakers.

Truth and Soul

So many collaborations this week, this one between conscientious of-the-moment streetwear brand Noah and the sadly, sadly underrated OG ska-punk-funk band Fishbone. Rugbys, long-sleeve graphic tees and, of course, hoodies. This stuff sold out quick, so you’ll have to hit the secondary market.

Samsung’s The Wall Luxury Micro LED TV

Appropriately dubbed “The Wall” because at 292 inches, this Micro LED TV will replace your old one.

Reebok Nano 9

The newest update to Reebok’s hugely successful cross-fit shoe, the Nano.

Starward Nova Single Malt Whisky

The Melbourne-based distillery matures their whisky in un-charred, Australian Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir barrels for three years. It’s a spirit made to pair with dinner.
