Crocs Classic Clog SZA

Last week, SZA shocked both fans of Crocs and her music with a collaboration that shines a light on mental health and self-care. The project, consisting of this pair of Classic Clogs and a pair of Slides, boasts a woodgrain patterned upper inspired by SZA’s signature wood log logo. But what really brings these Crocs to another level are the Jibbitz that they come with, featuring all of the things that are supposed to bring out “the good chemicals”, such as a fish and a water gun representing time spent outdoors, and even a marijuana leaf representing the literal release of good chemicals within your brain. All of the Jibbitz further promote SZA’s collaboration as an authentic recipe for having only “Good Days”.

Analogue Pocket Console Black & White

There’s no future without the past and that’s where the Analogue Pocket comes into play. The Analogue Pocket brings your old Nintendo Gameboy cartridges to life again, letting you play all of your favourite classics on this one device. This console mimics the look of the original Gameboy system and is constructed with similar specs such as Left and Right corner buttons, D-Pad, and A-B-X-Y buttons. The Analogue Pocket Console is currently under pre-order on Analogue’s official website, but you can get it in your hands now from StockX.

JBL Flip 5 Portable Speaker Gray Stone

It’s time to bring out the speakers for the summer and no one has you covered quite like JBL. The JBL Flip 5 Portable Speaker delivers powerful and bold sound all on the go. This JBL speaker is also waterproof and is constructed with rubber housing, making it absolutely durable. If you’re expecting a big party, you can also pair these speakers with another Flip 5 or other compatible JBL devices, to create a large stereo effect. And if all of those specs don’t attract you, then maybe its price will, as most of the Flip 5 speakers are selling for well below retail on StockX.

Swatch Sistem51 Hodinkee Summer Edition

The Swatch Sistem51 Hodinkee is another great collaborative piece on a watch with a storied history, similar to Swatch’s Omega Moonswatch release. The Sistem51 was developed back in 1983 and has since been one of Swatch’s signature models to date. This remake in particular takes on a summer-ready aesthetic with a majority-white case and band with hits of blue and black on the hour markers. With summer approaching, looking for the Swatch Sistem51 Hodinkee to be the watch for you this season.
