Staple uses mesh nylons, patterned polyesters, yarn-dyed jerseys and chambrays to make the transition from heavy outerwear to light, breathable casual wear for the warmer months ahead. This collection introduces a new collaboration with British artist Dave White who incorporated his stylized brush strokes into the brand’s signature pigeon. The collection is also home to a collaboration with Jack Stocker — recognized for his minimal, iconic sneaker illustrations – who takes the Jordan 1, Air Max 90 and Staple x Nike Dunks and puts them onto graphic T-shirts. Additionally, the second delivery of the collection will include a polarized, laser-etched Knockaround Sunglasses collaboration that features the signature Staple colorway of grey and pink. The Spring 2014 collection will be available at select retailers beginning February 5.

Since the Segway the floodgates opened for countless personal mobility devices, with designs that range from conservative to downright crazy. And the Aeyo—a cross between a scooter, a bicycle, and a pair of inline skates—falls somewhere in the middle of that scale. The Aeyo is ridden in a standing position like a scooter, but instead […]
A revamp of the iconic 1990s court shoe worn by Andre Agassi, the Nike Air Tech Challenge II now boasts bold color blocking and embroidered numerals near the heel.
