There’s a war that has been going on under your feet whether you know about it or not. Nike and adidas—and, to a lesser extent, other sneaker brands—have been jockeying for the comfort of your soles. In response to adidas’ Boost, Nike is proud to present React, which is a material that will first be seen in the brand’s Nike Epic React Flyknit sneakers. Nike claims the new material is a “softer, springier, lighter, and more durable foam,” which means these new racers are perfect for pounding the pavement or hitting the gym. While we have no idea how they quantify it, Nike also says the new React cushioning is 10% bouncier than the Nike LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2. Tested by athletes, the sneakers are set to drop on February 22.

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.
