Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Beige Collection

nikeair.jpg

This may be the third and final Nike AF1 collection from Givenchy's Ricardo Tisci, but it's also happens to be the most handsome of the bunch. The designer skipped the bright colors of the previous releases and while that might sound boring, the end result is a refined and luxurious variation of a sneaker classic.

The collection features three styles, but we've got our eyes on the classic low tops which are updated in a sandy "beige" colorway that is crafted from premium leather and accented with a tumbled leather black swoosh. The tongue and heel are done up in synthetic suede and the heel is also decorated with Tisci's signature design accents. The collection will be available tomorrow, October 16th, at NikeLab locations worldwide as well as NikeLab.com.

Sennheiser Urbanite

One of the biggest problems of most headphones that focuses their sound on the low-end is that you lose a bit of clarity and find that your sound becomes distorted and muddled. Sennheiser plans to change that with their new Urbanite, a bass-heavy headphone that keeps your sound quality in check without distortion.

Attention was also paid to the build quality of headphones with stainless steel hinges and an aluminum slider for a design that will hold up well over time. There's also a three button mic for controls and phone calls and the folding design keeps it compact for storage.
