Two years ago, adidas released a running shoe that got everything right. It was lightweight, flexible, and innovative in the way it returned energy with every step. Now adidas wants to one-up the Boost with the release of the Ultra Boost, and they claim it’s the greatest running shoe they’ve ever made. The new running sneakers keep the Boost cushioning technology, but a redesign improves the response by 20%. They’ve combined their PrimeKnit material on the uppers (we like) with their Torsion system and Boost cushioning on the bottom (we also like). The price is a bit steep at $180, but for serious runners these could be worth checking out when they hit stores on February 11.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
