Aether’s high-top Dalton sneakers feature an upper crafted from supple Italian leather and a Japanese leather lining. For comfort and support, D30—a shock-absorbing material typically used in motorcycling gear—is embedded at the ankles and under the insole. Made in Portugal, these shoes pair timelessness with innovation, making them ideal for everyday wear. Available in Onyx, Nordic Navy and Duffle Green, they come with a lifetime guarantee from the LA-based brand.
LA-based Slowdown Studio has collaborated with Mylle and London-based artist Anna Beam for this playful but sophisticated take on the humble inflatable pool. Made from super-durable heavyweight vinyl, each pool features a valve for easy inflation (and deflation) and is big enough for adults at 15 inches tall, and 65 inches diameter. Between pool’s shape and quality of the materials, and Beam’s delightful pattern design, this is an elevated inflatable pool just in time for summer 2020.
With an emphasis on agility, Gogoro’s Eeyo 1s electric bicycle is a sleek and slim open-frame bike with a smart-pedal-assist system that amplifies the rider’s torque at a natural pace. Rather than relying on a bulky battery-bearing frame, the power hubs are compact and tucked into the hull. The pedal-assisted top speed is 19mph and guarantees a range of 40 miles when fully charged. Plus, at just 26.4 pounds (courtesy of the weight-shedding, Kevlar-lined carbon fiber frame), the Eeyo 1s weighs roughly half as much as most e-bikes, making it a breeze to ride and to carry up and down from your apartment.
One of the two most recents additions to the roster of Swedish electric surfboard producer Radinn, the smaller Carve Tarifa model (measuring 5’10” long) weighs substantially less and offers sharper turning. This is an advanced jetboard option and goes from zero to 25mph in 9.7 seconds. Radinn also lets users customize the board, if they’re seeking longer range or more advanced mobility.
Made for runners, this long-sleeved shirt by Tracksmith was inspired by the mesh jersey that Bill “Boston Billy” Rodgers wore when he won the 1975 Boston Marathon. Lightweight, breathable and antimicrobial, the polyester/spandex blend (known as the brand’s “2:09 mesh”) is ideal for sweaty jogs. It’s available in navy with an ivory stripe or ivory with a terra cotta stripe, and in sizes small to XL.
Comprising 300mg of high-quality hemp-derived CBD, menthol, arnica and methyl salicylate, Asystem’s Gel Roll-On efficiently addresses lingering aches and pains. The bottle’s cooling stainless steel cryosphere ensures even distribution of the solution, and gentle pressure results in the formula properly penetrating the skin. Unlike lotions, which can be applied unevenly, the roll-on relieves pain more effectively. Plus, Asystem’s recipe—which contains 25% active ingredients—provides relief quickly.
Designed by the team at Japanese cycle shop CCP, the clever SS-VB02 Filter Top combines a sweat-absorbent, rain-resistant shirt with a built-in face mask.

Also, with a zipped slit pocket in the center of the chest, this garment proves itself to be super-functional and sleek. Available in navy or black, and three sizes.
Named “Center,” Round21 and artist Ju Schnee’s collaborative ping pong paddle features a colorful design that clearly marks the middle of the strike zone—where the ball should hit to avoid it careening out of bounds. A vibrant, geometric design adorns one side, while a speckled black and white pattern occupies the other. This high-preformance paddle features an ergonomic grip that lends comfort and control, and a rubber-foam hybrid pad for improved accuracy. Right now, the brand commits 10% of net proceeds to the Public Art Fund.

Volume #1 features pieces on “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela, painter Carroll Dunham, writer Alissa Bennett, Mexican luchador Mil Mascaras, and more.

Born from a partnership with Pittsburgh-based organization First Mile, Puma’s Erupt Trail running sneakers employ yarns made from plastic pollution collected in Taiwan, Honduras and Haiti. This silhouette is the first from this sustainable collection, but it’s also a continuation of a refresh of the Puma brand that commenced a few years back. Referencing design-forward footwear both past and present, this iteration offers high-performing tread and support systems and plenty of stylish finishing touches.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Chrome Industries has released a collection of limited-edition colorways for their iconic Citizen Medal Messenger bag: Old School, Glitter, Checkered Flag, and Neon Splatter.

Made from bamboo, bio-based packaging, and a water-based cleaning solution, DFNS compostable sneaker wipes can buff off stains, spills, scuffs and dust from leather and vinyl sneakers. With just a few wipes, troublesome spots disappear and leave sneakers clean and even disinfected—as bamboo has natural antibacterial properties. Plus, the Amsterdam-based company employs factories powered by wind to produce each package. Available in packs of 30.
A compilation of both well-known and unpublished photos, Gordon Parks: Muhammad Ali, as the title simply implies, focuses on two instances where the incredible photojournalist (and author, director, and composer) profiled the prolific boxer. In 1966, Parks covered Ali for Life Magazine. In 1970, the pair reconnected for a feature in The Great American Magazine. Intimate and incredibly artistic, the photographed moments represent pivotal points for both parties. Parks, after this string of successful stories, turned to directing, writing, and composing—namely his Blaxploitation genre hit Shaft. Ali, in the throws of vilification across America for his polarizing views on war and race, appears more human in Parks’ pictures. The bulk of these photos predate Ali’s arguably most famous fights—1974’s The Rumble in the Jungle and 1975’s Thrilla in Manila.
Designed for windy and rainy conditions, Houdini Sportswear’s The Square is a shin-length wrap-style skirt that’s easy to take on and off as needed with a simple hook and webbing waistband. Made in Japan from 70% recycled and 30% face fabric polyester (the silent, water-repellant top layer), the piece boasts a matte finish that adds subtle sophistication. Just like a raincoat, The Square is wind- and water-proof, and is resilient to rips and snags. The lightweight unisex garment’s wrap design makes it extra functional, as it can buckle at various sizes depending on your outfit underneath. Easily stored in a day bag, this is a perfect solution for unexpected foul weather.
