Adidas Rod Laver Summer Shoes

Even if you don’t reside in the class that goes season-as-a-verb-ing (hey, we don’t either), you should still have a sweet new pair of kicks for the Summer that’s all but upon us. The new Adidas Rod Laver Summer Shoes are perfect for just such a task. The washed out canvas construction makes them decidedly casual (no getting away with these at a stodgy office), but they’ll still look great with a suit, or shorts, or jeans, or chinos or, well, you get the idea. The lining is a soft and comfortable terry cloth, so going sockless isn’t going to make your feet look like they went through a meat grinder after a day hanging out at the beach. Oh yeah, and they look good too.

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.
