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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
