We don’t care who you are, or what music you grew up on–the Thin White Duke made some of the greatest music of all time during his tenure on Earth. Whether you prefer that persona or Ziggy Stardust, there’s no denying that David Bowie was one of the greatest musicians of all time, so it’s about damned time that one of the great sneaker makers built a few pairs worthy of his legacy. Vans is the perfect manufacturer to pick up Bowie’s punk runk ethos for a sneaker collection that even the Duke would be proud of. According to Esquire, the line will include four of “Vans’ most popular silhouettes, the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi, each customized in colorways inspired by some of Bowie’s most beloved albums—Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Space Oddity, and Diamond Dogs.” The Vans x David Bowie inspired collaboration will be launching in select Vans stores internationally on April 5th. We’ll be wearing each of the options on a rotating basis if the opportunity presents itself.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
