The Genius Life

In Bookstores

Max Lugavere is the best-selling author whose previous book, Genius Foods, made waves with his ideas on "resetting" the body. In Genius Life, Lugavere expands on those ideas, focusing on nutrition and how it affects your brain health, along with illustrating a full lifestyle protocol. The "prescriptive" 21-day plan he outlines provides a great starting point for anyone looking for a fresh start.

At Converse

Converse's recent acquisition of Draymond Green, and the unveiling of the G4 shoe, demonstrates that the sneaker brand is focused on recapturing its footing within the performance-basketball space. The "CX" stamp historically denoted innovation and quality from Converse. And these wearable kicks, in black or field surplus, offer a mix of classic styling and comfortable performance.

Feel Good

Thursday, 3/19


Streaming on Netflix

Given the recent trend for small-screen redemption arcs (think BoJack Horseman), there's something reassuring about the slow progress being made by the characters in Feel Good. Stand-up comic Mae Martin (whom you may recognize from her very good set on Netflix's Comedians of the World) navigates a passionate (and, at times, hilarious) relationship with her formerly straight girlfriend—all while dealing with the challenges of sobriety.

Zoom X Vista Grid Night Aqua Sneaker

Available at 10 am at Nike

Nike has been dabbling in the chunky sole lately, but nothing in comparison to other shoe brands. Their time has finally arrived for them to trot out the Zoom X Vista Grind with its "uniquely massive' recycled Zoom X foam. While the chunky sole is the main draw, the overall shoe doesn't look awkwardly large or misshapen. The upper has an aqua iridescent colorway, but it's also borderline see-through so your sock will show through.
