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.
Harry’s x Jimmy Chin Razors
Jimmy Chin is a legendary adventure photographer who skied down Mt. Everest. After meeting the founder of Harry’s, the two collaborated on a set of razors in the bright colors preferred by mountaineers and alpinists. An added bonus is that they’ll be easy to spot in your medicine cabinet.
Adidas Ultra Boost
Adidas has upped the energy return properties on its already-springy Boost midsole. The new Ultra Boost running shoes have 30,000 energy capsules, 20% more than previous models. They sit below a Primeknit upper that locks down your foot, resulting in what Adidas calls its “best running shoe ever.”
Colorware 24K Gold Gaming Controller
You’ve got the Midas touch playing video games like Madden and Call of Duty, why not get a controller worthy of your status? Colorware is making limited edition PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers covered in 24K gold. Fortunately, the coating process leaves the button and controller feel completely in tact.
Leatherman Tread Bracelet
Price TBD, leatherman.com
When most people talk wearables they’re referring to computers placed somewhere on the body, but Leatherman has gone a more utilitarian route. The company created a bracelet that puts the features of its multi-tools on your wrist. The bracelet, available this summer, has 25 features including screwdrivers, a glass breaker, a bottle opener, and box wrenches.
Where Chefs Eat
