UNDER ARMOUR HOVR PHANTOM CONNECTED RUNNING SHOES
Nike has React. Adidas has Bounce. Now Under Armour has HOVR. Debuting in UA HOVR Phantom Connected Running Shoes, the new energy-returning midsole is made from a proprietary foam developed in partnership with Dow Chemical. It works in conjunction with a mesh fabric that contains and molds the foam to ensure maximum return and a microthread upper that provides a lockdown fit. It will also be available with a sensor embedded inside, giving you access to run stats like stride length, cadence, pace, and distance without any unsightly add-ons.
ADIDAS ZX 500 RM SHOES
A staple for runners in the 1980's and last seen in 2002, the Adidas ZX 500 is making a comeback this summer. The retro runners stay true to their roots with a recognizable silhouette and mesh and suede upper and add modern features like the lightweight EVA insert, TPU heel stabilizer, and the brand's distinctive Boost midsole. Presented in grey with a cloud white and clear orange sole.
G-SHOCK GBA800 WATCH
It looks like your average G-Shock on the outside, but hidden within the signature shock-resistant shell is a fitness tracker. The G-Shock GBA800 Watch comes equipped with a special sensor that keeps tabs on your steps as well as a timer with up to 20 combinations. Pair it with their app and it can sync up to your phone for a breakdown of your daily activity. It'll even show exactly where and when you burned your calories. The timepiece is also water resistant up to 200 meters and comes in six fresh monotone colorways.
LEICA SOFORT INSTANT CAMERA
Leica and instant camera aren't words you see used together very often. The Leica Sofort is the company's take on instant photography, combining the convenience of built-in prints with the brand's signature style and premium build quality. Spitting out 2.44" x 1.81" Instax Mini-format prints ideal for sharing, the camera offers a variety of preset programs that provide point-and-shoot ease for people, sports, selfies, and other common occasions, but this being a Leica, you can also take manual control of the focus, flash, and EV. The internal Lithium-ion battery powers the camera for up to 100 shots per charge. Getting an instant camera only to have to hunt down film for it is a pain, so our Leica Sofort package arrives with one pack of color film and one pack of black-and-white Monochrom film.
FELIX GRAY COMPUTER EYEWEAR
It should come as no surprise that staring at screens all day can lead to eyestrain, blurry vision, and headaches. Felix Gray started to address this and created a line of eyewear that filters blue light and eliminates glare to reduce the side effects of prolonged screen time. To go along with their non-prescription and reading glasses, Felix Gray is now offering prescription glasses as well that utilize the exact same technology that helps reduce negative effects from screens. The eyewear is available in seven high-quality frame styles and ten different colors to match your style and face.
MONTBLANC x BMW ACTIVITY KEY SET
The fob for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan is less of a key and more of a transmitter. At roughly 2" x 0.75", it's tiny enough to be carried in a variety of ways, and the Montblanc x BMW Activity Key Set gives you a couple. A watch-quality black cowhide leather wristband lets you keep the key on your wrist, while the metal key fob makes it easy to keep it attached to any legacy door-openers you carry around.
BIRDWELL x TODD SNYDER BOARD SHORTS
With summer just around the corner, it's time to think about a fresh pair of trunks to celebrate the imminent temperature spikes. The Birdwell x Todd Snyder Board Shorts are a good place to start.

TOPO DESIGNS x WOOLRICH KLETTERSACK
American outdoor brand Woolrich is known for its woolen fabrics, and it's those high-quality materials that make the Topo Designs x Woolrich Klettersack so distinctive. The Woolrich-sourced pieces are accented with rich leather, which appears on the base and lash tabs. It also has a completely lined interior, an inner sleeve that fits laptops up to 15 inches, a drawstring closure, oversized YKK zippers, and extra pockets on the top and sides. Available in a western print, black waffle or olive waffle and handmade in Colorado.
ECCO EXOSTRIKE DYNEEMA EDITION BOOT
Tough enough for the trail yet sleek enough for everyday wear, the Ecco Exostrike Dyneema Edition Boot strikes an ideal balance between utility and style. Its upper is made from Dyneema Bonded leather that's five times stronger than typical hide yet lightweight, letting you attack the day without worrying about scuffs or tears.

BISON DESIGNS KOOL TOOL BELT
Who needs a tool belt when your belt is your tool? The Bison Designs Kool Tool Belt helps keep your pants up and keep you ready for anything by incorporating three wire strippers, large and small flathead screwdrivers, a Phillips head screwdriver, both standard and metric hex tools and rulers, and, of course, a bottle opener all into a single Cr-13 steel buckle.

ORLEBAR BROWN 007 SWIM SHORTS
Known for providing the swim shorts in SkyFall, Orlebar Brown now have four different Bond-themed offerings available for a limited time. Each pair is designed for effortless style, and feature signature side-fasteners for adjustments and are made using 100% quick-drying polyester. Iconic 007 imagery is displayed on the shorts, from a still from Live And Let Die's memorable chase scene and the iconic beach scene in Dr. No to artwork from You Only Live Twice and an illustration from the Thunderball film poster features Sean Connery as 007 with a speargun in hand.
Some guys just can't be kept indoors, they need to get out to appreciate everything that life has to offer — and it's just that sort of guy who inspired the Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Craft Sunglasses.

They also feature gold-colored metal frames, polarized, mirrored crystal lenses, and a lightweight construction that lets you comfortably wear them all day. So give your eyes a break the next time you step outside, and do it in style.
