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.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
