Adidas Snowboarding Jake Blauvelt Boot Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

adidas is tackling a new market in their footwear department with the Jake Blauvelt Boot from their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. However, the company is anything but a novice in the snow sports industry as it used to own snow equipment brand Salomon and has done collaborations with Burton Snowboards. The adidas pro-rider snowboarding team consists of riders Eric Jackson, Helen Schettini, Keegan Valaika, Kazu Kokubo, Forest Bailey and signed Jake Blauvelt as the team’s anchor. The snowboarding division focuses more on lifestyle rather than performance, giving a more modern, stylish and rugged look.  Look out for these boots at adidas Originals’ retailers worldwide.

Skydiver Felix Baumgartner officially became the first person to successfully free fall from “the edge of space” by jumping out of a balloon 128,000 feet (24 miles into the atmosphere) above New Mexico. The journey back down to Earth lasted a little less than ten minutes.

Jack Daniel’s Unaged Rye Whiskey, bottled at 80-proof combining 70%  rye, 18% corn, and 12% malt barley, is an absolute game changer.

James Bond – 007 – Aston Martin DB5

Introducing the Aston Martin DB5, appearing in the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. Just last week, James Bond celebrated its 50th year in action by auctioning off memorabilia at Christie’s in London. Some items included the Aston Martin DBS used in Quantum of Solance, swim trunks worn by Daniel Craig from Casino Royale, and a few items also worn by Mr. Craig from Skyfall such as the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean and a wool Tom Ford suit. We can assume that the Aston Martin DB5 will be auctioned off in the near future as well, but how much would it be? It’s no doubt that Aston Martin covers every inch of detail when designing and engineering their automobiles. The DB5 found its place in car enthusiast’s hearts when it debuted in 1964 and it is still one of the most iconic cars ever produced. If you are interested in the role of Aston Martin in some of the 007 films, check out their site here.
