There’s no doubt in our minds that Oliver Cabell is the best new sneaker brand of the past few years, but their recently released Phoenix sneaker seals the deal. It’s a stylish, airy shoe with a sleek profile and a simple black or white aesthetic. If you want clean lines, minimal color and solid construction, you’re already sold. It gets better. The Phoenix is a 3D printed sneaker with an upper constructed of recycled plastic bottles. Recycled bottles are sterilized, washed and cut into flakes before being spun into a fiber and then getting printed into a shoe. “Our mission has always been fairly simple,” Scott Gabrielson, founder of Oliver Cabell, explains. “To marry the finest design, materials, and process with the latest technology, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. We feel that the Phoenix is the culmination of what we’ve been striving for since we launched.” We’re inclined to agree with him–especially when you factor in the odor-reducing liner for sockless wear, cooling microfiber tongue, EVA sole and the fact they’re machine washable.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
