Adidas' latest collaboration with Oyster Holdings has just hit stores. And we're fully behind this fresh take on the BW Army. The design is, of course, based on the vintage German army trainer, but this monochromatic take with a tonal white outsole gives a cool, modern vibe that looks way more expensive than it really is. They're the kind of kicks you can wear to the office or after hours.

We're calling them comfortable and conscientious jeans. Last year, Levi's WellThread partnered with Outerknown and this fall, the collaboration continues with items like a quilted shirt jacket and these soft jeans in Levi's popular 511 cut. Everything in the collection is made using organic or recycled materials and these jeans are made with denim woven with Lyocell, a high-quality fiber made of wood sourced from responsibly managed forests and recycled cotton scraps. The result looks good and does good too.

Glossier, the cult beauty brand, has come out with their own acne fighter reminiscent of a Tide to Go pen. Because this clever and rollerball pen effectively erases zits almost as quickly as the Tide pen tackles stains. The gentle but effective treatment features capryloyl salicylic acid (a milder derivative of salicylic acid), 5% benzoyl peroxide (which kills acne-causing bacteria) and tea tree oil (which calms and heals skin). We tried it on a deep rooted cystic pimple and the pen brought it to a head and completely dried it out in just over 48 hours.

Tomorrow, Shinola is introducing its Monster Collection, a series of special-edition automatic dive watches that pay tribute to the Great Lakes. The Lake Superior Shinola Monster is our favorite, giving off a green glow against a black dial, black bezel and steel bracelet, reminiscent of the Northern Lights. Machined from stainless steel, the 43mm case is inspired by the lines of classic sailing ships and features a single dome sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The movement is manufactured by Sellitain Switzerland and the watch is assembled in Shinola's Detroit watch factory.

Need a grown up way to procrastinate in your office? Designed by Barcelona-based design studio Mermelada Estudio, this handmade and half-polished backboard is crafted from navy blue leather and beautifully patinaed copper. It makes for a handsome art piece on a wall, but the copper rim and chain net actually doubles as a functioning basketball hoop.
