RONNIE FIEG X ASICS FOR CHARITY

IMG_7423-800x533Ronnie Fieg has been known for designing some of the most exclusive collaborations with Asics, New Balance, Sebago, and Adidas just to name a few. But his latest collaboration may be the most exclusive of all. As a matter of fact, it’ll be pretty much impossible to get your hands on a pair. Ronnie Fieg has collaborated once again with Asics on a new pair of the Gel Lyte III “Super Green”. Where can you get a pair? You can’t. 300 pairs of the shoe will be made, with every single one of them being donated to Haiti citizens as part of the Sole for Souls charity. Ronnie designed the shoe with heavy materials so that they would last longer. Really cool on Ronnie’s part to use his influence in the sneaker industry to do some real good for those in need. See Ronnie Fieg’s full blog post here.

Featuring a fitted cut and vintage, distressed look, the shirt has the fatigue details to look classic,with modern details such as the Profound Aesthetic patching and metal buttons. Profound Aesthetic has always provided quality pieces in my experience so this would be an excellent addition for the season.

BIKE ART

700_bike-rack-wood-10I take my bike out for a ride. I get home and lean my bike against the wall. I kick the bike walking by. My dog knocks the bike over playing ball. The wheels leave a mark on the floor of my house after it’s moved. Who needs all this drama? If you’re proud of your bike, turn it into an art piece by hanging it on the wall. Better yet, hang it on the wall with a piece that you can consider art. Wood bike hangars are the perfect solution to stylishly store your bike out of the way, while providing a mini shelf for keys, books, and water bottles. The option pictured is from Knife & Saw and offered at a pricey $300, but check out CB2 for a $50 option as well.

BIG BOX

big-jambox2Sure, the Jawbone Jambox was nice. It was portable. It was sleek. It had quality sound. But it was kind of missing some punch. Good thing the people at Jawbone decided that bigger is better, bringing us the new BIG Jambox. The big Jambox features precision tuned drivers and dual passive bass radiators to produce the best sound possible out of the box. In addition, it’s completely wireless with Bluetooth compatibility. Even with the added size, the big Jambox still looks as sleek as it’s little brother, coming in a variety of colors to go with your room.
