Adidas P.O.D. Sneaker is Getting a ‘Grey’ Colorway

The Adidas P.O.D. silhouette debuted last month in just a single colorway, but things appear to be picking for August with a two new looks scheduled for release early in the month.

The latest is this “Cool Grey” variation that includes all of the standard P.O.D. tech like Boost heel cushioning, but uses a lighter color scheme. The sneaker features an all-grey mesh upper with tonal branding, white laces, and a white midsole. Offering a pop of color to the low-key look is the Shock Yellow “Point of Deflection” midfoot bridge.

Check out the official images below of the Adidas P.O.D. “Grey” which releases August 2 online at adidas.com and select retailers for a price of $130.

Let the sweater weather games begin.

No matter how many “sweater weather” emails retailers send you in September, the urge to actually wear anything other than a T-shirt doesn’t come on until the weather finally turns gray and damp. And then you remember why sweaters exist and its 24/7 cozy-town (cue those same retailers exhaling in unison). Jake Gyllenhaal is right there with you on this. The actor was photographed in New York earlier this week wearing a sweater so triumphantly FALL, it might as well have had orange and red maple leaves embroidered on it. He didn’t pull the move early—a style god never season pushes—he waited until a cool October night when a sweater made sense. And then he went for it in a cranberry cashmere turtleneck, looking like a model in an advertisement for Thanksgiving Dinner, Rich People Edition.

The thing that makes nice sweaters so valuable, nice turtlenecks in particular, is that they give you the sensation of being under your duvet, and the appearance of someone who never sleeps in. They also make you feel like you’re wearing a proper outfit in a way that a T-shirt or sweatshirt cannot. Jake Gyllenhaal wore his turtleneck with a pair of navy trousers and brown lace-up boots, but it could have just as easily been chinos and chukkas or jeans and loafers. A good sweater just does all of the work for you. Seriously, where have they been all our lives?

Patagonia Endorses Senate Candidates for First Time in Its History

Patagonia Endorses Senate Candidates for First Time in Its History

The outdoors brand is backing environmentally friendly candidates.

Jon Tester, Democratic senator from Montana, is an advocate for hikers and hunters, an organic farmer, and a man seemingly so in touch with the circle of life that he brings his own butchered beef through airport security when he travels from Montana to Washington D.C. All this, at least, according to Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, which is endorsing candidates for Senate for the very first time this year (Experts tell The Washington Post it may be the first time any brand’s explicitly endorsed specific candidates). The only way that description of Tester—who’s up for reelection next month—could be more on-brand for the outdoor gear brand is if it mentioned that he did it all while wearing a Synchilla Snap-T. But after taking on the president in a campaign last year, Patagonia is now politicking on a local level by endorsing two candidates for the Senate: Tester and Nevada Democrat Jacky Rosen.

Patagonia says that the decision to endorse its first senate candidates is fueled by the same issue that riled the brand up against President Trump. Both Tester and Rosen are candidates that Patagonia feels will fight for public lands and environmentally friendly policies. “We are supporting Jon Tester because he gives a damn about protecting public lands—and, like us, he’s committed to fight back against anyone who doesn’t,” Chouinard said in a statement, citing “Republicans in Congress who only serve the fossil fuel industry.”

The brand went after Trump back in December of last year, after it was announced that he was rolling back protection on national monuments in Utah. When you went to the Patagonia website that day, images of smiling outdoorsy folks were replaced with a stark black image that read: “The President Stole Your Land.” Patagonia will replicate that strategy this time around, amending its website to visitors everywhere with a black background and text that reads, “Democracy Requires Showing Up” and “A vote for Jon Tester/Jacky Rosen is a vote for public lands.” The national monuments in Utah that Patagonia sought to help in Utah were successfully saved. Now, the brand is working at the senate level, hoping to effect change in a massive midterm election—and perhaps contribute to the fabled “blue wave” to return control of the House and Senate to Democrats.

Still, Patagonia wants to distance itself from outright partisanship, even if it is embracing two Democrats. “This is not born from a desire to get into partisan politics,” a statement reads. “In fact, it’s the opposite—it’s about standing up for the millions of Americans who want to see wild places protected for future generations.” (Environmental issues have generally served as friendlier territory for brands looking to get into politics: last year, after Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Accords, dozens of apparel companies signed an agreement pledging to stick to the agreement without much blowback.)
