Ultimate Recovery Slide
The Chaco-strap foot tan has become a summertime tradition for outdoors enthusiasts, and with this cushy new recovery slide, the tan lines are sure to get even weirder—which, to be clear, is a good thing ($50).
The Kamakura jacket is a legendary Kapital design. In bad weather, it cloaks the wearer; in good weather, it can be worn open like a kimono. And for travel, it folds into a bag with its own handle ($1,450, at Blue in Green).
The Swiss Army Knife Of Bags
Everyone goes gaga for Sacai‘s Nike sneakers, but don’t sleep on the Japanese label’s Porter bag collab, which now has modules for your phone, AirPods, and trusty bottle of hand sanitizer ($410).
Ugly shoes have been slowly taking over fashion for years, and the Merrell Jungle Slide is the final boss of surprisingly cool, insanely comfortable footwear ($85).
