hen it comes to sneakers, most of us live and die by the Swoosh with very few exceptions. There’s never been a better time to back the Nike brand because they’ve been re-releasing some of their tried-and-true stalwarts from the archives with modern archives. Case in point–the new Nike Challenger that’s been purpose built for a modern era. Rory Fraser, Nike Senior Global Product Manager, had this to say–“After re-releasing the Tailwind OG, Waffle Racer and Daybreak, we wanted to follow up with a model from the same era, but with a slightly different upper construction. The Challenger has more splits and panels, allowing us to play around with material and color in a slightly new way — and providing fans of the classics with something different to add to their closets.” In practice, that means a style that remains true to the OG with its combination of nylon, suede and mesh, while also having a widened heel for a more comfy fit and more bold color options based on the original’s material differences. The Nike Challenger OG will be released later this summer on all Nike platforms for an as-of-yet unconfirmed price.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
