Inspired by the espresso drink Cortado (aka “gibraltar,” “café noisette,” “cortadito” and “piccolo latte”) that combines equal parts espresso and warm milk, the latest J.Crew x New Balance collaboration combines those tonal colors into a new sneaker. The extremely limited J.Crew x New Balance 997 Cortado silhouette combines whites, grays and browns in a premium suede and mesh upper filled with contrasting accents that sits atop an ENCAP midsole in white and a light brown outsole. The iconic throwback is produced in New Balance’s Skowhegan, Maine, factory and will be available March 25 online and in-store. If you want to pick up your J.Crew x New Balance 997 Cortado sneakers in person from one of the select J.Crew stores that will have them, you can also get a free bag of Counter Culture Coffee for J.Crew medium roast if you’re one of the first people there.

We’re sick of the quarantine beard, so we’re going clean shaven again. We’re doing it with a Henson razor. Precision-machined out of aluminum by a boutique aerospace manufacturer, this razor feels and works better than anything else on the market. It presents the blade at such a precise angle you can barely feel the shave. It’s uncanny. Most guys (and gals, they have a women’s razor) prefer drugstore cartridge razors because they’re plug ‘n play. Honestly, the Henson design ensures perfect positioning every time, and it’s cheaper and better for the environment long-term. Switch today.
