KID ROBOT x THE SIMPSONS DUFF BEER FIGURES
There has been a lot of The Simpsons news lately, ranging from Smithers’s impending coming out to rumors that the show may be ending its run in the not-too-distant future. It’s enough to make you want to kick back with a Duff beer, or at least a 3-inch vinyl figure of a Duff beer. Kid Robot has partnered with The Simpsons on two figurines, one of Dizzy Duff and one of Surly Duff, that deserve a place on any home bar.
ADIDAS x HORWEEN STAN SMITH
Just when you thought they couldn’t do anything else to the Stan Smith, Adidas teamed up with Horween Leathers tannery out of Chicago to drop another mind-blowing version of the iconic tennis shoe. The upper on each shoe is fashioned from a single piece of leather and has a suede heel tab. These are sneakers you won’t mind beating up, because the leather will take on unique characteristics the more you wear them.
TESLA MODEL X

The much-anticipated Tesla SUV was unveiled recently and it lives up to the hype. While it certainly isn’t cheap, the Model X does come with some unique features. With seating for seven, getting into the “way back” is easy thanks to the Falcon Wing doors. The Model X has a range of 250 miles on a full charge and you can take in a lot on your drive, thanks to the largest windshield in production. It even has a medical-grade filter to keep bacteria and pollen out of the car that can switch to bioweapon defense mode if shit really hits the fan.
