It shouldn’t come as a shock to you that there’s another sneaker collaboration between a well known brand and a designer you’ve probably never heard of with a ridiculous, nonsensical name. Confusing as these things are, the amount we like them generally tends to be directly proportional to their ludicrousness. Take these Adidas ObyO Kazuki White Plant sneakers for instance. Waxed canvas upper decked out in the brightest white. Near ground level it meets a rubber cap toe and sole in an off-white, almost cream color. Red highlights divide the two and also color the iconic, almost mary jane Adidas logo. Add some green stems and the Adidas logo now blossoms like a flower. You need some bright white kicks this summer. Do you want to be one of the guys rocking identical pairs of Vans Authentics? Or, do you want to rescue princesses with the help of the red flower?

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
