Stan-Smith-Some-People-Think-I’m-a-Shoe

It’s incredibly difficult for an article of clothing to become timeless. Trends fade and designers tinker feverishly, making any semblance of staying power insanely challenging to achieve. That’s why you need to respect a sneaker like the Stan Smith. When adidas first introduced the tennis sneaker in the early 1970s, there’s no way the people at the three stripes brand could have foreseen the life it would take on. Stan Smith: Some People Think I’m a Shoe is an ode to one of the most iconic sneakers ever created. The book charts the five decades of the shoe’s existence, sharing insights from designers, fans, and even Stan Smith himself. Long-forgotten advertisements, photos of exclusive colorways, and more fill the 336-page book, which is available for purchase now for any sneakerhead in search of a history lesson.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
