Leave it up to Hiroshi Fujiwara, the man behind fragment design and Nike's HTM projects, to create a designer option to sneaker deodorizers. His brand, retaW, which is water spelt backward, is the choice option to find in a stocking this time of the year.

The Nike Flyknit Chukka FSB Trainer is treated with Defender technology and has reflective hits on the toe and heel. It’s the same Flyknit Chukka that people are used to, but it won’t get one’s socks soaked when jumping a puddle.
