Converse’s iconic Chuck Taylor sneakers have gotten everything from Lunarlon and leather upgrades to updated colorways and even an all-weather boot option in the past year or so, and now Converse Chuck Taylors are finally going Flyknit. For the first time ever, Nike’s lauded Flyknit technology is going to be part of a shoe without the swoosh on the side. It was only a matter of time before something like this happened because Nike owns Converse, but that doesn’t change the impact this is going to have on your footwear game if you’re a fan of Chucks. It’s the same Chuck silhouette that you’ve come to know and love (complete with white sole and Converse badge on the ankle); it’s just been upgraded with contrasting Flyknit and Lunarlon technologies for superior durability, comfort and support. We’ve only seen a black and teal colorway in the hi top option, but it’s a pretty safe bet after the Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit launches on April 27 there will be more colors and lo tops.

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.
