There might be a more comfortable running shoe out there, but if there is, we don't know about it. The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ ($TBA) combines Nike's Flyknit technology — which provides a more precise fit, integrates support and structure, reduces seams, weight, and points of friction, and reduces waste by 80 percent — with the company's incredibly comfortable yet lightweight Lunarlon foam cushioning to provide an optimal running experience. It won't be tailored precisely to your foot — it'll just feel that way. Arriving next month.

Gustin Denim is high quality stuff, but at a low price. This is thanks to their new method of buying jeans–crowdsourcing. By allowing you, the consumer, to fund which styles you want, they make sure the unpopular styles go unfunded and they don’t spend time making something nobody will want. The jeans will be handmade in San Francisco, and will feature the same features you'd expect from a luxury pair, including leather patches, tucked beltloops, selvage side seams and flies, chainstitched waistbands, and custom shaped and finished hardware. They have already raised $251,043 on Kickstarter in the past month, amazing! Checkout our exclusive interview with co-founder Stephen Powell from Gustin after the jump. [See & Read More]
