After much anticipation the new Jordan Countdown package has finally been released. This package consists of the 20′s and the 3′s both coming in a predominantly black color scheme.

Collette just recently hooked up with Virgil Abloh on this new athletic tee. It features a Collette chain design and is printed on a heavy champion t-shirt. I like the layed back Grey and Blue color scheme, and the graphic is dope. Look for it at exclusive Collette Retailers. [Via highsnobiety]

This new and innovative shelving system was created by Brisbane designer Alexander Lotersztain for Australian brand Planex called “The X System.” It combines simplicity, versatility, and strength to form some of the coolest shelves out there. Shelves can be easily added or removed and the only tool required to do so is an allen wrench. These would be great for your shoe selection but if yours is anything like mine you might need a few extra shelves. [Via Kanyeuniversity].
About a year ago the shoe company Gravis approached The Hundreds asking them if they would collaborate with them on their annual “Black Box” Collection. It is a year later and the collection is done. The picture above does now do the products justice. Not only are these products hella fresh they are also very practical. The backpacks can fit laptops, i-pods, cameras, etc. plus the normal notebooks. This whole collection is available at Goliath.
