With sponsors like Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas, you know the Golden State sneaker closet is full of gems.

Quality footwear is synonymous with the Vans brand. And their revolutionary UltraRange design takes those values to the outdoor adventure seeker. Each pair is armed with a co-molded UltraCush midsole, updated Rapidweld detailing, a lightweight, die-cut rubber outsole with a reverse lug waffle pattern, and a breathable, "Old Skool" inspired upper. The breathable upper keeps feet cool, while molded heel support ensures a steady grip on uneven terrain. The EXO even has a revamped rubber toe and forefoot shape to provide an optimal fit without sacrificing Vans design DNA — making this a truly evolved edition of the UltraRange.

Vague Watch Co.'s Grey Fade Submariner gets its name from the dark grey bezel insert, meant to mimic the sought-after "ghost bezel" effect found on the faded black bezels of well-worn vintage sport watches. Adding to the vintage look are intentional but subtle distressing marks of the case sides. It's built with an automatic movement, meaning you'll never have to change a battery, as the watch is powered by the movement of your arm during wear. With a stainless steel case, a screw-down back, and a 100-meter depth rating, the watch is also rugged enough to handle some serious time in the water. On top of that, it ships with a sharp military-inspired case, watch tool, and a classic nylon NATO strap to switch out with the stainless oyster band.

Having access to power when you're on the road can be a literal lifesaver, and the Noco Genius Boost Pro Jump Starter can provide it.
