Kick winter's snowy, white ass this new year in a pair of Nike LunarTerra Arktos Boots ($TBA) and leave yourself wondering how you ever got by with you current inferior excuse for footwear. These modular boots are packed with the kind of innovation only Nike can bring to a pair of boots, with Lunarlon technology in the midsole for comfort and mobility, Flywire and Hyperfuse in the upper for a flexible fit, and Vac Tech molding for fewer seems and better water resistance. The toe and heal sport a diamond texture that, along with their available black or olive colorways, will help you stand out when the weather turns bleak.
Welcome the new year in the right way.

If you need a good pair of winter boots, but aren't too fond of the bulk and weight typically associated with warmer footwear, you need a pair of Native Jimmy Duck Boots ($90). They've taken the familiar silhouette of the duck boot and modernized it, building it with lightweight EVA material and updated colorways. Choose from jiffy black, regatta blue, torch red, and beaver brown. Each pair is completely waterproof, washable so they're easy to keep clean, anti-microbial and odor-resistant so you don't have to worry about them getting nasty, and lined with micro fleece for warmth on even the coldest days.

There are few things as irritating on an already nasty day as dealing with an umbrella that just can't cope with a serious gust of wind — turning inside out, soaking you in the process, or just plain blowing away. With the Senz Smart Umbrella ($50) you don't need to worry about the wind, or the rain, thanks to its innovative take on the shape of a traditional umbrella. Its angular design is shorter in the front than in the back, helping it cut through the wind without letting any get underneath. An ergonomic handle helps you comfortably hold on to the umbrella, while a range of available colors and prints keep you looking great, even when the weather doesn't.
The holidays are a great time to head home for a bit — catch up with old friends, put in some quality time with the family, relive the glory days of high school. Unfortunately, you're not the only one with this idea, making airports a congested place full of delays, missed connecting flights, and chaos. So, if you're going to be there a while, you might as well carry all your gear in style with the Everlane Suede Weekender ($180). The perfect size to pack in everything you need while still fitting in an overhead compartment, this handsome bag features a water-resistant suede exterior available in coal, garnet, and dark brown. With a khaki twill lining and leather straps with a 12-inch drop, it's the perfect complement to your favorite airport get-up.

So maybe you're a little jealous of all your visually-impaired friends and their stylish frames — but just because you have perfect vision, that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to rock a pair of Exovault Aluminum Eyeglasses ($400). Machined from solid aluminum, and available in either clear anodized or black anodized, these frames are made in small batches in a studio in Brooklyn. They ship without prescription lenses, so they're perfect for when you want to add a touch of hipster geek to your look, without a trip to the optometrist. And if you're one of the (un)lucky ones who truly needs corrective lenses, fret not, your eye doctor can always fit them with something functional.
Some classic menswear items rarely receive an update — the oxford shoe, neckties, sport coats — and most don't need one. But the Ellsworth & Clyde Magnetic Tie Bar ($50-$70) proves that sometimes a little innovation in a time-honored staple is sorely needed. Doing away with the clumsy mechanical hinge, these tie bars use powerful magnets to hold your neckwear in place no matter how much you move or how hard the wind blows. Handmade from carefully-selected hardwoods, stained, and finished with durable leather instead of a hinge (and with two lengths on either side to suit any tie), these tie bars are as inventive as they are handsome.
