Star Wars

The Rise of Skywalker

Streaming on Disney+

May the fourth be with you ... The Rise of Skywalker was released in theaters before the pandemic hit, but now it's available for streaming on Disney+. The final chapter of the newest Skywalker saga hits a thrilling conclusion that left some highly devoted fans somewhat disappointed—but it's still very enjoyable for the casual Star Wars fan.

‘Question’ Sneaker

At Reebok

This shoe is another homage to commemorate the life and attitude of Allen Iverson (nicknamed, “The Answer”). Originally released in 1999, the same year Iverson earned his first scoring title, the sneaker is roughly the same but with tumbled white leather and an oatmeal suede toe cap. Twenty-one years since the original launch, Reebok has been dearly missed from creating a basketball shoe with a bit more style. Luckily, they're back putting out what worked so well for them in the '90s.

$120 at Reebok

Available at 10 EDT

Nike has already released the Air Force 1 React in a few colorways, but the QS version features an outsole with an icy blue finish that elicits memories of a similar Air Force 1 GORE-TEX colorway from last fall. A subtle, but noticeable change for a shoe so well known. In a world of sneakers full of flash, these stand out in the best ways without being too gaudy.

Mother's Day

From Afar (or at Least Six Feet)

We're just under a week away from Mother's Day. Take this as your final reminder to order gifts if you haven't yet. Shipping times are already turbulent due to prioritizing essential goods, so now's the time. While it may be a “Hallmark” holiday, it's still a great time to show how much we care and appreciate our Moms. Especially during times as trying as these.

I Know This Much Is True

Streaming on HBO

Based on the bestselling novel by Wally Lamb of the same name, this limited series is the story of twin brothers. One is forced to take care of the other and all the while, they're discovering new secrets of their own family that'll shake them to their cores. Initial reactions have been mixed, but we trust that HBO knows what they're doing when it comes to limited series. Their track record is pretty good, right?
