Forget LeBron's pre-game chalk toss — if you really want to increase your grip on the ball and the floor, you want Mission Power Grip & Court Grip ($10-$15). Power Grip — made for your hands — uses "liquid chalk technology" to provide excellent dry grip that lasts the whole game, while the Dwayne Wade-endorsed Court Grip brings similar stickiness to the bottom of your sneaks.
The weather's starting to cool down across North America, and for some of us, that means a return to the ice. The Easton Stealth RS Hockey Stick ($250) can help you dominate the point lead this season with a compression-molded layer of Kevlar on the outside for protection and enhanced feel, an elliptical profile for less torsional twist — which saps energy from your strikes — and a blade that stays closed through the shot so the puck glides true.
Let your flag football buddies know where you're coming from when you reach the endzone with a pair of Nike Vapor Jet Rivalry Gloves ($75). Making their debut during last season's rivalry week, they sport large, colorful team graphics across the palms, which are also covered in Magnigrip CL to help you keep ahold of the rock.
