A Simpler Time

CLICK WATCHES ABOVE FOR SHOPPING INFO! 

While smart watches may be loaded with endless functions, the design and simplicity of a classic analog watch can’t be beat. These six field and military inspired timepieces won’t answer the phone, but they harken back to a day when all we needed to watch to do was to tell time us the time… and do it beautifully.

These six won’t break the bank either.

 

CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: TECHNE MERLIN 296 STAINLESS STEEL AND WEBBING WATCH $235. The Merlin 296 was inspired by military timepieces from World War II and based on a British Ministry of Defence design. Engineered with precise Japanese quartz movement and encased in stainless steel, it has luminous markers and oversized Arabic numerals for legibility. 

WERENBACH MODELL 5 $1500. Every Werenbach is made from real space-traveled rocket material. This dial was cut from the exterior cladding of the rocket engine, and in its original condition, so no two watches are the same. The Launch Sequencer scale shows the three stages en route to orbit, with time, altitude and rocket stages I, II and III displayed on the watch.

TIMEX + TODD SNYDER MILITARY WATCH $138. From the Timex collection by designer Todd Snyder, this classic time piece has been reinterpreted with a modern sophistication. Inspired by 1970s military watches, this fresh style features vintage dial artwork based on rare pieces from the Timex archive, updated with a contemporary case and strap detailing for a stylish look.

Ten Icons Reconstructed

 

NIKE BLAZER BY VIRGIL ABLOH

Seems like every fashion and style journal you read there is Virgil Abloh, the man behind hot fashion label, Off-White. Last month saw the limited release of his collection with Nike, “Ten Icons Reconstructed”, one of the most buzzed about sneaker collaborations to date. Originally only five styles were available to a lucky few Nike raffle winners, but a wide release date of all ten has now been set for November 9th at select stockists.

The collection is a reinterpretation of ten iconic Nike styles, both classic and newer silhouettes, divided into two themes. “REVEALING” includes the Air Jordan 1, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax, and Nike Blazer Mid; and “GHOSTING” includes Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017, and Nike Air Max 97.  The editors at Hypebeast, the definitive chronicler of sneaker drops and all things cool, created this sliding demo of the original vs. the new designs, which you can click to view HERE.

So be sure to mark your calendars, and check out this list today of where you can grab a pair of these much hyped about sneakers: The 10 Global Stockists. The competition will be fierce and you don’t want to miss the chance to own one of the ten.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), CrossFit, and Boot Camps have become some of the most popular workouts, providing maximal results in minimal time, and proven to offer continual calorie and fat burning benefits even after the workout is done. Based on the concept of interval training, periods of highly strenuous activity are alternated with easier recovery periods. The cardiovascular benefits are the heart rate is kept high as the body stays in motion, rotating exercises and targeting different muscle groups throughout the workout. 

Classes at favorite studios like Barry’s Bootcamp, Orange Theory and others we reviewed in the 31 Days of Fitness, combine treadmill and rowing intervals with explosive plyometric and power moves, multi-directional floorwork, and weight bearing exercises. They require the agility and support of a training shoe with the cushioning and traction of a running shoe.

Here are 6 versatile hybrids, for men and women, we think hit the mark for all your training needs — ready to take on any workout with style!

2 Runners, 5 Shoes

 
TWO RUNNERS: SARAH & CLAUDIA

 
Looking for a little motivation to get you out on the road? How about a new pair of running shoes! We asked Nike, Asics, Newton, Hoka, and Brooks to send us their top picks for a lightweight neutral trainer. Since different runners like different shoes, I invited Sarah Toland, co-author of Lindsay Vonn’s recently published book, Strong Is The New Beautiful, and a 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier in the 5K and 10K, to road test these running shoes with me. She’s a tall and lanky gazelle of a runner, while I’m shorter and more compact in my running style  — what Sarah describes as “a recreational marathoner with zeal”. My goal is simply to get from point A to point B. Hers is to do it fast! Here are two different runners thoughts on five of the newest top trainers:

NIKE LUNARGLIDE 8 $120

Nike says: The LunarGlide 8 offers breathable support and exceptionally soft cushioning to help you glide through your longest runs. Engineered mesh provides comfortable breathability while Flywire technology adapts to your foot for a secure fit. The soft, contoured Lunarlon midsole has precision-lasered cuts on the sides that collapse during footstrike to help you reach a smoother stride. A dynamic support platform adds comfortable, lightweight stability without weighing you down.

Sarah says: I loved how the Lunarglide fit my narrow foot and offered a great combination of a firm feel and well-cushioned ride. I wish it was a bit more springy and responsive, otherwise it might be my favorite out of all those we tested.  Read More
