We played high school basketball in Converse Pro Leather high-tops in red on white leather. We loved those shoes, and so did just about anyone else who spent time on the court in a pair of Cons. The brand struggled when new brands jumped into the b-ball fray. Converse filed for bankruptcy, and they disappeared from the basketball scene completely in 2012. Under parent company Nike, Cons looks to make a resurgence with their All Star Pro BB, a shoe that captures the ethos of Cons but infuses new materials and tech into it. The shoe uses a single layer of foot-comformingNike Quadfit canvas mesh for the upper along with a streamlined rubber outsole for a clean look. The new shoe will drop in May at a price of $140 and will come in white and black, both of which capture the All Star look in a fresh and almost futuristic way.

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?
