Pickup: Summer Nikes

Edmonton, just like most of North America, is currently going through a heat wave. This includes humidex warnings which are usually unheard of around here. Both the AC and the water systems broke down at work yesterday so we were sent home early. Lunch on Whyte with Manav and some coworkers before hiding from the heat in my basement made for an awesome Monday. In a couple weeks I'll be heading back to Europe for a short summer vacation with Andrea. These Nike Frees will come in handy for strolling the streets of Munich, Prague, Berlin and Amsterdam. Also, last year I started playing soccer on a team for the first time (I played baseball as a kid). I went the entire year without cleats so one of the first things I bought this summer were a pair of Nike Mercurials. Hopefully they help stop me from sliding all over the place.

Sassafras at Inventory

One of my favourite brands, Sassafras, is now available in North America for the first time thanks to the folks over at Inventory. Taking inspiration from gardening and the outdoors these would be a great addition to any summer wardrobe. Three different models of shorts and pants are for sale and the price points aren't as bad as I was expecting.
