Every year at the Bonneville Salt Flats, a group of daredevils gathers to do one thing — go as fast as possible on anything with wheels.

Director Skylar Nielsen talks to these speed freaks about what keeps them coming back.
An artificial island, a Buddist guru, endangered birds, and the UN building — New York City's U Thant Island has a very interesting history.

The history of the Frye Company dates all the way back to 1863 when John Addison Frye opened the first shop in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The Frye John Addison Harness Back Zip Boot remembers the Frye founder in the form of this vintage tanned in the USA leather pair. Rugged and tough, the Addison is fitted with a thick harness ring and rivet detailed strap that wraps around the ankles, round toe, and the signature Goodyear welted construction that ensures these boots are built for the long haul. And at the end of a demanding day, the full back zip allows you to let your guard down and slip off your boots until the next time their services are needed.
Designed with the everyday fighter in mind, the York Athletics Featherweight Knit Trainers are both strong and lightweight at the same time. The performance trainer is made from a custom-engineered knit that is durable enough to stand up to any training session. Its flat weave construction won't stretch out with wear, while a hot melt coating provides an additional layer of strength to the more flexible areas. Made from a single piece of material, the upper is free of seams and overlays, creating a comfortable, slipper-like fit. Available in gray, black, and red.
