You may have thought Nike had already done enough with a variety of interesting products and events to generate press leading up to the World Cup. However, yesterday they announced today's release of the Nike Free Mercurial Superfly HTM as the cherry on top. Writer Gary Warnett has produced an article for 032c outlining the project and the launch of NikeLab, complimented by an interview with Nike CEO, Mark Parker.

One of the stores I tend to regularly check out online is the Japanese retailer, Haluta. Alongside their strong clothing selection they also have a vintage furniture shop which has a large variety of vintage Alvar Aalto pieces, among other Scandinavian designers. While it might be expensive to ship them overseas, the website serves as an interesting catalogue of many of these classic designs – all beautifully photographed, alone and in situ.

—01. 100% Rayon.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

If you're anything like me, you're far too lazy to go all the way to midtown to browse the Tommy Bahama flagship store. So wherever you are, save yourself the consistently horrible experience of leaving your house, and instead buy this beautiful, minimally printed '50s style shirt by Japanese brand Phingerin.

There are an overwhelming amount of attractive '90s styled running shoes on the market these days, and it makes choosing a lot more difficult, especially with almost all brands jumping on board. Adidas Originals, more commonly known for their classic sneaker styles, released the Torsion Allegra earlier this year, and it is a standout as far as retro-inspired running shoes go.

—01. Windy's Coast to Coast.

Words

Ideal Cap Company, makers of the Cooperstown brand, have some outstanding baseball hats available for teams that had even smaller followings than the minor league ones. The striped baseball flannel on this example looks great, as does the odd graphic which appears to have belonged to a restaurant-sponsored team.

Our designer, Ant Hooper, put me on to this podcast a while ago; I now look forward to it every week and have recommended it to many friends myself. Produced by Roman Mars and funded by the listeners through Kickstarter, the independent show speaks on design and architecture, though not overly specifically, making for a variety of interesting and engaging stories.
