Mayfly Shoes

I’m kinda late to the game on these, but I really like them. They’re designed to be ultra-light (4.8 ounces) and therefore don’t have any of the ridiculous accoutrement that most running shoes have. Instead, all the design features, like the ubiquitous “swoosh” are silk-screened on. Also, they’re only intended to last about 65 running miles (hence the name). 5000 will be made and they’re only available in men’s sizes.

Puma Nuala Sneakers

I’m not sure if you’re in the relentless pursuit of comfortable yet cool looking shoes like I am, but if you are, dear friends, I think our hunt is nearing it’s end. Let us pretend just for a moment that one pair of shoes could ever quench our neverending desire for more footwear, and I ask you consider Puma’s Sneaker Sock from Christy Turlington’s Nuala line. Intended for yoga and other indoor uses, I think these would be perfect for city walking too (assuming it’s not raining). I’ve seen these in person and I really regreted not buying them for about a year now.

“In soft bronze-metallic nappa leather, they’re a logical choice for both lunging and lounging indoors. The liners hide cushioning pillows under key stimulation points, and their stretch mesh sides and flexible soles let you push your ‘limberness’ to the limit.”

Twill Motorcycle Jacket

So, while perusing Puma’s site the other day, I ran across this jacket. I’m not one to specifically sport brands, but I’m kind of impressed by the whole Nuala Collection. We all know Puma has some good shoes, of course, but for all you ladies out there wanting some casual/cool/comfortable (and lots of yoga) wear, you might find just what you’re looking for. Maybe.

Details include stand-up collar, asymmetric button closure over a center zip front, elbow patches, and front hidden pocket in seam. A thin padding is added for warmth. There’s also a “sun motif” appliqué on the back, which makes me a little nervous, but looking at all the other stuff, I can only assume it’s tastefully done.

Available in Evergreen (shown), Bark, or Cinder (black).
