Nike unveils the Zoom Hypercross Trainer, a versatile workout shoe that implements their new hexagonal Nike Zoom Air design for enhanced cushioning and responsiveness. They've accomplished this with a unique new sole that places Zoom Air units into hexagons that contain tightly stretched tensile fibers.
Using pressure mapping and an extensive set of data, Nike placed the zoom units in the forefoot rather than the heel to complement where most of the movement of an athlete occurs when in an intense workout. It also allows the foot to be lower to the ground for better stability and flex grooves in the sole give you more articulation. The Zoom Hypercross Trainer will be available on Nike.com and select retailers on October 10th.

Feit's Bio Trainer 1 is one of our favorite and most impressive sneaker releases this year with a design that is cut from a single piece of leather. This time around they're giving the Bio trainer a fall update with a mid-top that gives the sneaker a boot-like aesthetic.
Construction is just like the original, an incredibly impressive piece of craftsmanship that is 100% handmade from leather or suede by a single master craftsman. On the back of the shoe is a heel counter made with a high-grade leather that is usually used in luxury dress shoes and the lightweight, biodegradeable sole is made from a natural latex rubber sourced from the milk of a rubber tree.

Sometimes its the quietest designs that make the biggest impressions. That's the case with Menu's Daybed, a versatile furniture piece that can easily go anywhere and make for a beautiful bench in the hallway or a place to catch a quick catnap.
Designed by Anita Johansen, the daybed is made with a simple ash frame and a thin upholstered cushion. It comes in an all-black colorway which you can setup with your choice of leather or felt, though we're quite taken with the light wood and grey felt colorway that's pictured above.

The Leica X series of cameras gains a new sibling, the X Typ 113, a compact APS-C shooter coupled with a Summilux 23mm f/1.7 lens (35mm equiv). The camera has the fastest lens in the X lineup which should deliver beautiful bokeh and great performance in low light situations.
The large 16MP APS-C sensor should be comparable to some of the best DSLRs in that class and it also has HD-ready video capability with 1080p HD shooting at 30 fps. Of course, no Leica would be complete without its premium fit and finish. The camera's construction features a mix of magnesium and anodized aluminum and is then finished with matching leather trim.

There's no two ways about it, the varsity jacket is an undeniable classic, an enduring piece of American style that has been a staple for generations and it's simply one style we can't get enough of. One varsity jacket we've got on our lists this season is this model from Epaulet called the Thorpe that's cut in a slim but not skinny fit.
The jacket comes in navy with caramel sleeves or a black on black colorway. Both have a body made from a soft brushed 22oz melton wool that is matched with full-grain Italian leather sleeves, a blackwatch liner, and a fold-over shawl collar for a subtle, refined twist.

Leica just announced a very special camera at the Photokina show in Germany celebrating the 60th Anniversary of its iconic M Rangefinder camera system. The camera is a Leica M-P with a twist, a big twist. The camera has the latest full-frame 24MP Leica sensor, but takes it back to the basics, giving you access to just the essentials: shutter speed, aperture, focusing, and ISO. It's like shooting on film, but digital.
Limited to 600 examples worldwide, the camera will come with a 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M lens and both the body and lens are styled by Audi Design. Each camera and lens is individually numbered and matched to each other and will also come with a camera protector which is also created by Audi Design. The M Edition 60 will hit Leica retailers in October.
