To accompany the uppers, the sneaker sits atop an all-white sole, which even incorporates white stitching for further details. Rounding everything out is the tan color linings and debossed Jumpman logo on the tongue. The Air Jordan Shine White/Vachetta Tan Continue reading

via www.acquiremag.com Rapha knows a few things about building solid performance pieces for professional cyclists, but one thing that deserves just as much attention is their fashionable takes on your everyday classics.

The shirt features clever details such as a clean, covered placket and strategically placed shoulder seams so it can wear comfortably under a shoulder bag. It's also got a high-stretch fabric and that chambray option looks great whether you're on or off the bike. Continue reading

via hypebeast.com Motorcycle tuner Roland Sands Design premieres its latest custom Indian bike dubbed the “Track Chief.” Inspired by drag bikes, RSD opted for a board tracker silhouette, adding the single-sided element and all its detailing, whilst retaining the spirit of the tank shape, girder fork and frame.

via www.acquiremag.com Outlier lets its customers purchase prototypes. And as you can see, these are hardly some half baked, poorly executed ideas. Their latest prototype is a wool/linen blend that the brand is experimenting with and definitely a piece we'd want in our summer rotation. The shirt features their pivot sleeve cut and if you haven't tried one of these shirts on, it delivers a freedom of movement unlike anything else out there. We hope the brand puts these in production as the wool/linen mix is a great all year fabric and especially ideal for the summer months to come. Continue reading

via www.acquiremag.com When Breitling announced the Avenger Blackbird we quickly fell for its all-black-everything styling, but one thing we weren't in love with was its oversized case which only came in 48mm. Today, Breitling fixes that with a much more reasonably sized (and much more wearable) 44 mm size that is equally as bold without going overboard. With the size being the only difference, the watch shares all the great aspects of the larger 48mm model such as the black, carbon-coated titanium case, bi-directional bezel, military-style strap, volcano black dial, and the Breitling 17 automatic movement which has a 40...

via hypebeast.com Nike Zoom Hypercross Trainer incorporates Nike’s novel Zoom Air cushioning technology. Using highly strung tensile fibers placed within each highly pressurized Air unit, the technology functions by releasing the tension within the fibers upon impact before snapping back into place, resulting in responsive propulsion. The concentration of such units in the forefoot makes this trainer suitable for short but intense training exercises. Featuring a mesh upper and sporting a completely neon yellow volt colorway, the trainer looks to combine both aesthetics and functionality. The Zoom Hypercross Trainer Continue reading
