Do not try this at home — unless your home is Russia. 18-year old Kobzarro is a train surfer, which is the art of dodging the police, climbing on top of a train, and riding it — often in cold and snow.

He might be too old to skate in the dark, but Tony Hawk isn't too old to still pull off some of the best tricks The Berrics' warehouse has ever seen.

A history-making occasion deserved a history-making championship ring, and the NFL didn't disappoint, tasking Josten's to create the largest Super Bowl ring ever. Weighing in with 9.85 carats of precious stones, it makes the team's 2001 ring look downright modest.
Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface.

The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.
