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.

While the term “bubbly” is often used to refer to champagne, a little carbonation can also improve just about any cocktail. The SodaStream Mix is the creation of renowned designer Yves Béhar and features a touchscreen panel that you can use to craft your favorite drink. You can also use the app and make drinks from your couch. (You’ll still have to get up to retrieve the drink though. Sorry.)
ADIDAS ADIZERO 99G
True to its name, the Adidas Adizero 99g weighs 99 grams, making it the lightest soccer cleat ever. The weight (less than a quarter of a pound if you’re not fluent in the metric system) is nearly half that of a standard cleat and it maintains that measurement even when its wet. Despite the minimal design required to make cleats so light, they held up well in wear testing on the feet of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. Only 299 of the shoes will be produced and they are all size 9.
CANON XC10 CAMCORDER
Remember when camcorders used to be hulking things that you had to mount on your shoulder? The new Canon XC10 is nothing like that. The sleek design is cool enough that we’re actually excited about a camcorder for the first time in forever. The XC10 is lighter than the company’s SLR cameras and is capable of shooting 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 60 frames per second. So get ready to start shooting cinema quality cat videos.
REIGNING CHAMP X LOS ANGELES GALAXY CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT
Reigning Champ makes some of the finest quality sweatshirts we’ve ever seen. Now they’ve teamed up with five-time MLS Cup champion Los Angeles Galaxy on a collection of gear for the soccer team. The sweatshirt has an extra panel in the shoulders to provide greater range of movement and features five diamonds across the chest to represent the Galaxy’s titles.
CANDYLAB TOYS GT-10
You are never too old to play with toy cars. Even without the confederate flag on the roof, this muscle car makes for a nice homage to the iconic Dodge Charger from Dukes of Hazzard. The body is made from solid beech wood and the tires are actual rubber. It does not have a horn that plays songs, but you can get it up on two wheels.
