This is the jacket to end all jackets. The Spacelife Jacket was designed with major inspiration from iconic spacesuits that astronauts wear. Not only does the jacket look like a spacesuit, but it features some incredible features as well. The outside of the jacket is made from a trilobal fiber, which is waterproof & light-reflecting. Possibly the coolest thing is the built-in speakers in the hood that are controllable through Bluetooth or the integrated remote on the sleeve. It’s available for pre-order now for $1871. Head here to check it out.

A culmination that started first with Air Force 1, then Air Force II and III before including Air Force STS and finally Air Force V, the Nike Air Command Force was a technical marvel of its days. One of the first athletic footwear to include not just Nike Air cushioning but an anatomically correct inflatable application around the ankle, it became not just David “The Admiral” Robinson’s signature shoe but a pop culture sensation of the 1990s when Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) donned a pair in the movie White Men Can’t Jump. Already launched in the OG (Billy Hoyle) and “Spurs” variations, Nike will be adding the White, Lion Blue and Bright Crimson edition, seen here, to the product roster wery soon. via FreshnessMag.com

Though it doesn’t come with its own book stand, like the Sumo-sized Annie Leibovitz limited edition, the75 Years of Marvel Comics by publisher TASCHEN is still a hefty and voluminous printed matter. Measuring at 11.4-inch by 15.6-inch with 712 pages, it features some 2,000 original arts and photos, including a 4-foot long accordion-style foldout highlighting Marvel Comics history. As loyal as fans of comic books are, they are also more skeptical than most when it comes to a new publication “cataloging” the history of comics. But not this one, professed Marvel’s former chairman Stan Lee and TASCHEN. The book focuses not only on the various characters and titles throughout Marvel’s 75 years, but the artists, writers, and interesting side-stories not familiar to even the most ardent of fans. Penned by Roy Thomas, former editor-in-chief of Marvel, and TASCHEN art director Josh Baker, The 75 Years of Marvel Comics: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen is available now at TASCHEN store locations worldwide andAmazon.com. via FreshnessMag.com
Rather than just another accessory with matching colorway, the design team at Jordan Brand decided to go a few steps further in this new Air Jordan 11 Retro “BRED” Backpack – by adding a outsole replica at the pack’s base. Aside from the outsole, pack incorporated nearly all of the features found on the “BRED,” such as the patent leather mudguard, abrasion resistant nylon twill and the special Jordan branding. Furthermore, in addition to the hugely popular Nike Air Max 90 Winter True Strapback Cap, the AJ 11 “BRED” Backpack maybe a precursor to other accessory designs to come in the near future, perhaps a “Space Jam” or “Concord” version of the backpack?

The Nike Air Max Plus continues its comeback year thanks in large part to a few exclusives via Footlocker Australia. Following the widely revered “Emerald” edition, the latest model is minimal for the most part, highlighting a white base with cobalt and black contrast throughout the body. Things get interesting, however, as safari print lines the upper from toe to rear in a light grey hue. A Tuned Air Unit below is encapsulated by a white midsole with a shiny grey toe cap to finish. Give them a look below and stay tuned to Sneaker Release Dates for possible stateside release info. via SneakerNews.com
