One of my all-time-favorite sneakers is the first track shoe created by Nike in 1972. The limited edition Kendrick Lamar version has gym red coloring that lives up to the shoe’s illustrious history.

Chillax on your next ski trip or beach vacation with shades so retro, you’ll feel like you’re going back to the ‘90s. Alternate space-time continuum optional.

For St. Patrick’s Day, three artists – a designer, an illustrator and a photographer – joined forces to design this limited edition under the theme of “Friendship.” Camaraderie has never looked better – and it’s delicious with ginger ale.

The brand’s new collection is defined by relaxed tailoring and the preppy look of the late ‘80s, revitalizing their classic heritage with a touch of Ivy League.

Nine exclusive designs sketched by the master himself combine his love for athletic designs with a touch of Parisian flair. Each piece comes with a booklet of his sketches, a collector’s dream.
