Nike x Undefeated – Nike’s approach to the Huarache is similar to Gretchen Wieners’ feelings on “fetch” in Mean Girls. They try at every opportunity to re-launch this retro runner, but this latest with Undefeated may have the right formula. Drawing on the car culture lining Crenshaw Boulevard, the uppers are entirely in a bright blue, with a mix of suede and neoprene that is accented by an iridescent caged heel. Look for this exclusive project with Undefeated to drop in stores this Saturday, July 16.

Todd Snyder x Timex – American Designer Todd Snyder teams up with another American Classic this summer. Timex has given the reins to a vintage 40mm timepiece to Snyder, and the result is a distinguishing dial with a mod red-and-black bullseye face. The design is inspired by mod fad during the ’70s and a nice contrast the the military history of the original watch. The watch is set to retail for $138 and will be accompanied by a gray NATO strap.
