Reebok Shaqnosis
Basketball Shoes

At Reebok

The Shaq signature shoe design from 1996 returns with its original look and feel. These shoes scream '90s style and are the perfect nostalgic trip for anyone who's remembering 1996 like it was yesterday. (It was 23 years ago for the record...) They launched over the night, and while they are limited, don't expect them to be gone by the end of the day. You've probably got some time.

Sex Education

Sex Education

Season 2

On Netflix

The British comedy-drama series, which focuses on a group of young people trying to navigate sex and relationships, as well as their own identities, has been explosive for all of the right reasons. It features classic dry British humor, along with all of the grief and confusion that comes from being a teenager, though you never feel lost on their jokes or references. Truly terrific writing and acting.
