We’re back, and better than ever. There was so much content that we wanted to post for the first post back. Sneakers, architecture, vehicles, etc. But we thought it would be cool to bring everything back with tech first. And with so many new things being created lately, we felt this would be a great place to start back up. 

After unveiling the BeoVision Eclipse last year, Bang & Olufsen introduces a new iteration of the OLED 4K television, along with the BeoLab 50 loudspeaker rendered in a “Brass Tone and Smoked Oak” colorway.

Exuding timeless elegance and pure luxury, the BeoVision Eclipse boasts brass-tone aluminum on the motorized floor stand, as well as the side and rear of the audio center, making the TV sound and look beautiful from all angles. To complete the experience, the BeoRemote One BT Netflix version has been designed in brass-tone also, while the speaker cover on the front is handmade in smoked oak wood.

In addition, the BeoLab 50 speaker has been carefully anodized in a brass-tone including the motorized acoustic lens, appearing when the loudspeaker is switched on, as well as the unique beam width control, controlling sound dispersion. The brass-tone is complemented by the smoked oak wood overlay on the side of the speaker.

The BeoLab 50 Brass Tone and Smoked Oak loudspeaker is now available in Bang & Olufsen stores, while the BeoVision Eclipse Brass Tone and Smoked Oak TV will be available during the end of May. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to hear audio on one of their systems, then you know they’re all worth every cent. We recommend checking these out when they hit stores and online.

It may not seem like it, but nicer weather is on the horizon for us. And away from kicks, one of the things we love most on those sunny days, is a great pair of slides. A lot of brands have had some cool and even iconic slides over the years, but one of our favorite brands that doesn’t get the shine it deserves, is dropping a great line that we want to show some love to. 

Vans has come through accordingly by releasing a new selection of checkerboard slides. The sandals, featuring synthetic leather straps with soft neoprene liners and molded PU footbeds with anatomical arch support, are highlighted by the Cali brand’s signature checkerboard pattern on the midfoot strap. 

Optioned in three colorways, you can pick up your size today through select Vans providers. Grab a pair of these, you won’t regret it.

With Spring right around the corner, it seems like classic kicks have been dropping left and right. Our good friends over at Nike have been releasing new Jordan’s like crazy, so it’s been so many great kicks to cop lately, that most people have bled their tax refunds dry by now in trying to keep up with everything. One of the most coveted kicks from the Jordan line has got to be the Air Jordan 1 “Bred Toe”. Classic look and feel, it’s always been one of my personal favorites, and it just so happens that they’ll be dropping again tomorrow. 

It still features the design’s premium fabric selection and complimentary color palette, that not only signal a new direction for the famed silhouette, but retains many of the markings that have earned it its timeless reputation. They’re retailing for about $160, and will be available via Nike’s SNKRS app, and select retailers like UNKNWNBSTN & Livestock, tomorrow. So don’t sleep. These won’t last long at all.

Design is everything these days. And we subconsciously gravitate towards things that we find aesthetically pleasing. They can be anything from natural items like flowers or a sunset, to more material items, such as clothing and cars. With London Fashion Week Men’s FW18 currently going, and with Louis Vuitton scheduled to debut its presentation in the upcoming Paris Fashion Week, the luxury imprint’s menswear creative director Kim Jones, has provided a teaser of one of its offerings that’ll definitely garner the attention it deserves.

Taking to social media indicating that the men’s show is only several days away, the accompanying image that Jones uploaded on Instagram reveals a closeup of an LV billiards table in red and white, detailed with a monogram flower pattern, while the entire ball set are all highlighted by LV motifs. The cue ball’s pristine makeup flaunts the fashion house’s insignia for a truly luxurious and clean finish.

If you’re feeling stylishly buoyant and if you’re in the market for a cool and fashionable pool set, we think this one might work nicely for you when it comes out.

Chances are, it’s pretty damn cold where you are right now. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t hit the streets for a good morning run. There’s nothing like starting your day with a few miles under your belt and if you have the right shoes to get it done in, you’re guaranteed a killer run. 

Laceless running shoes are starting to pop up more often, and the idea itself is pretty awesome. Especially for those of us who have had to re-tie our shoes during runs. adidas’s Ultra Boost Laceless is the latest silhouette to receive the “Triple Black” treatment, from the company. The slip-on sneaker is highlighted by breathable knit construction, a sock-like collar, and the brand’s patented Boost tooling.

They’re set to retail around $200, and would be a nice little addition to your running kicks collection, if you want something light and comfortable. The release for the “Triple Black” Ultra Boost Laceless is expected to take place next month. Pick these up if you can.

Flipping it to the tech side of things, we thought we’d show some love to one of our new favorites. And as music lovers, we all need a great pair of headphones to roll around with. So instead of keeping the secret to ourselves, we wanted to get into something we think you’d want to hear about, if you love your music as crispy as we love ours. 

In all honesty, those headphones you get every time you get a new phone are pretty terrible. When you see people out on the street with those things dangling perilously in their ears, screeching out tinny sound of whatever music their trying to enjoy, you just feel bad for them.

That’s because in-ear headphones may be the way to go. And Shinola’s new Canfield in-ear monitors are definitely some of the best in the field. We’ve tested these and can attest to their greatness. The Detroit design company has developed and tuned the hardware in partnership with engineers at Campfire Audio to give a rather tasty 8.5MM Beryllium dynamic driver to give a rich, authentic sound. 

With the in-ear memory foam cushioning that just gets you, bass notes are deep and robust while higher ones come out clear and crisp. There’s also an in-line microphone for vocal clarity and reduced environmental noise for when your phone starts acting like a phone. Here’s some stats: total harmonic distortion is less than 1%; impedance stands at 1.5Ω @ 1KHZ; efficiency is 115 DB SPL/V @1KHZ; sound pressure level is 104 DB.

You really can’t go wrong with these. Pick up your pair at Canfield’s online store.

Fall is here, and all kinds of flyness has been dropping lately. So we’ve been compiling our favorites to highlight and dissect. When the seasons change, we change how we rock our favorites. And this fall, there are so many different brands and models to choose from. So please forgive the overload of kicks we’ll be hitting you with over the next couple of months or so. 

Last weekend, ComplexCon was the place to be for fashion and sneaker heads alike. We had spies in the building scoping out all kinds of newness that we figured would hit shelves to kill sh*t this upcoming season. One of the shoes that we found to be undeniable, was laced by Union LA, and it made some noise, which is why we felt it only right to show some love today. 

As noted, Union Los Angeles officially unveiled a new colorway for the iconic and always classic Air Jordan 1, last weekend. Using black, gold and white patent leather, this iteration combines 2016’s “Top 3” color blocking with 2013’s black and gold colorway. 

We don’t have any info on price or current availability, but you may want to hit the reliable resell havens like eBay, to see if you can luck up in getting a pair. We’re pretty sure you won’t see too many people rocking these rare gems. So don’t sleep.
