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.
SHINOLA x MUHAMMAD ALI CENTER WATCH
Muhammad Ali is the G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time). So it only makes sense that Shinola pay tribute to the boxing champion as part of its Great Americans Series. The Detroit watch and leather goods company created this watch in partnership with the Muhammad Ali Center. It features a 41mm stainless steel case and an alligator strap with a unique red backing. The best part is that each of the 400 watches comes with three 8.5 x 11" photos of Ali that are signed by photographer Thomas Hoepker.
YAMAHA x ROLAND SANDS FASTER WASP MOTORCYCLE
Price unavailable, rolandsands.com
Take renowned custom motorcycle builder Roland Sands, throw in inspiration from one of Yamaha’s classic bikes, and incorporate state-of-the-art performance parts, and this is what you get. Nicknamed the Faster Wasp, the motorcycle pays tribute to legendary racer Kenny Roberts’s Yamaha TZ750, but incorporates a modern 850cc, 3-cylinder engine and a lightweight aluminum frame. This bike will do more than turn heads, it will snap necks.
NIXON BOBA FETT A-10 BACKPACK
There is no shortage of awesome Star Wars collaborations out there, but Nixon just dropped a backpack that rises to the top. The top-loading canvas pack is inspired by Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett and has some incredible details. In addition to the Boba Fett colors, the pack has a zipper pull designed to look like Han Solo frozen in Carbonite and the Jaster Mereel insignia.
KILLSPENCER x SNARKITECHTURE MINI BASKETBALL KIT
The old Nerf mini basketball hoop that you perfected your 360-degree dunk on definitely didn’t cost almost a grand, but it also didn’t look this good. Killspencer teamed up with renowned design firm Snarkitechture, who are behind the look of Ronnie Fieg’s Kith stores. The hoop and ball utilize premium materials and incorporate the stark white aesthetic that Snarkitechture is known for.

Pax is releasing this limited edition version of its Pax 2 vaporizer with a gold-brushed aluminum case. It still has all of the other features that the Pax 2 is known for such as lip-sensing technology and self-optimizing temperature control.
