To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
Adidas Tubular Moc Runner
Adidas has a hit on its hands with the Tubular. And much like Nike did with the Roshe Run, Adidas is evolving the silhouette. The Tubular Moc Runner model blends suede and mesh to create a moccasin-style sneaker that deserves a steady place in any sneakerhead’s rotation.
Starting at $45,358, arielmotor.co.uk
This may not be the most practical vehicle, but it sure looks fun as hell. The Nomad is a buggy that can handle the most rugged off-road terrain but is also, according to its manufacturer at least, just as home in the city. Or the track. The 2.4-liter VTEC engine produces 235 horsepower and can go 0-60 in 3.4 seconds.
Jean-Michel Basquiat x The Skateroom Skateboards
Unless you’re a Jay Z-level mogul, owning original Basquiat art is probably out of reach. You can, however, acquire his work on a limited-edition skateboard that will look just as impressive on your wall. The Skateroom partnered with Basquiat’s estate to create the decks, featuring works such as “Untitled-Skull” (below) and “In Italian” which are spread across three planks of wood. Individual decks are also available.
Somabar Robotic Bartender
Remember that scene from Rocky IV where Rocky gives Paulie a creepy robot. This robot is less creepy, and it knows how to make a delicious cocktail. With the Somabar, you fill up the Soma Pods with your favorite liquors and mixers. Then using a smartphone app, you select the drink you want and the Wi-fi enabled device starts mixing it for you. The best part is you don’t have to deal with some mustachioed mixologist who takes half an hour to make a Manhattan.
Mash Photo Cannister Water Bottle
$10 each, shop.mashsf.com
Most folks probably don’t even remember a time before digital cameras. While film and the canisters it came in have largely faded away, they can at least live on with these cool water bottles from Mash. The Specialized Purist bottles feature the logos from iconic films like Fuji Velvia and Kodak Kodachrome.
