Germany has a reputation for great design and, thankfully, two juggernaut brands are only increasing their overall portfolio for us to admire. PUMA and Porsche have recently collaborated on a new sneaker to celebrate the 1911 Carrera RS 2.7. This legendary car was first released in 1972 and quickly became stuff of legends. The 1911 had all the makings for a success: a light, speedy thing with sexy lines and a dash of European irreverence that made Porsche a household name.

Now, PUMA’s limited edition sneaker takes many of these elements and applies them to their classic sneaker. Red leather lines and laces contrast against the white upper and sole to make this a classic combination. It’s subtle and made for everyday wear, with only the slightest bit of cobranding at the heel. What’s more, purchase of the shoe gets you entry into the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart to see the 1911 Carrera RS 2.7 for yourself. With only 500 units made, these bad boys have gone fast – but the resale market is looking good. Just put some pedal to the metal if you see them listed anywhere. They’re sure to be an instant classic, just as the 1911 was 50 years ago.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
