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. Referencing styles passed and biking motifs of yesteryear, these playful, high-performing bags celebrate the technically-inclined and design-savvy brand. Our personal favorite, Gold Glitter, adds a pop of color to an otherwise all-black bag designed to carry a laptop, sneakers, bike lock, water bottle, and more over one shoulder.
A compilation of both well-known and unpublished photos, Gordon Parks: Muhammad Ali, as the title simply implies, focuses on two instances where the incredible photojournalist (and author, director, and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.
The Skateroom and beloved artist Judy Chicago collaborated on this skateboard triptych—a limited edition printing of the artist’s “Return of the Butterfly” lithograph, courtesy of the Jessica Silverman Gallery. Made in an edition of 50, the three boards are seven-ply Grade A Canadian maple. Best of all, 5% of the proceeds will be donated to the Athens-based women in skateboarding non-profit, Free Movement Skateboarding; and an additional 5% will go to Chicago’s arts advocacy non-profit, Through The Flower, thanks to the artist waiving her royalties.
For ice-skaters and hockey players, the Re-Edger from A&R Sports offers assistance with several on-the-fly fixes.

Designed by LA-based art director and designer Sam Jayne, the Happy Games cap is a cheerful play on the Olympic rings.

adidas’ Terrex Free Hiker GTX (in khaki, sesame and olive) fuses the brand’s high-performance capabilities and advanced design with all the prerequisites of a sturdy hiking boot. Primeknit uppers, GORE-TEX lining, and boost cushioning all sit atop the Continental rubber outsole—which provides comfort and stability no matter what’s underfoot. Best of all, the sock-like fit keeps debris, dirt, sand and water out.
Made to celebrate MAAP’s ride with Semi-Racer in Brisbane (Queensland, Australia), the Bunya Brisbane Bramble Cap is part of the brand’s Field ride series—wherein familiar local routes are reimagined. Made in Italy from cotton and featuring a special antibacterial sweatband, the cap is one size fits all, but a scrunched elastic band affords plenty of stretch. Its bright blue, red and pink hues will keep a wearer visible on the roads.
Inspired by the announcement that the WNBPA (the official union representing WNBA players) would be opting out of its current CBA, under which they are grossly underpaid, Chance’s “Bet on Women” basketball raises awareness for the WNBA and its players.

Chance also works with various organizations like Project Backboard, Enfants du Bénin Debout, and Hoops for Haiti.
