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.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
