In flux

Adi­das’ ZX Flux range, the ver­sa­tile shoe that plays with tex­tures and colours, will soon fea­ture what is called a Bal­lis­tic Wo­ven Pack.

The new ad­di­tion uses bal­lis­tic ny­lon weave up­pers with re­flec­tive de­tail, while keep­ing the welded brand­ing and heel cage of pre­vi­ous Flux shoe ver­sions. Adi­das will in­tro­duce the shoe in black, dark blue and me­tal­lic grey. The ZX is a durable shoe that will take you through the tough­est ter­rain. On sale from Septem­ber at adi­


LaSelva Stu­dio has in­tro­duced a de­signer wall hook called Loop. This min­i­mal­ist hook con­sists of a thin sheet of metal or plas­tic, a wooden body and two screws. When packed, Loop is about 15mm thick, mak­ing ship­ping and stor­ing it a breeze.

The Loop can be used for hang­ing or stor­ing, de­pend­ing on the po­si­tion you in­stall it in. So gloves, coat hang­ers, spec­ta­cles, news­pa­pers and cell­phones can be kept tidy and out of the way. It will be­come avail­able next month. Prices start at R265. Get your own de­signer Loop

It’s ge­nius!

Trav­el­ling long dis­tances – by bus, car or plane – can be a pain in the neck, lit­er­ally. And usu­ally there’s just no space for a pil­low (let alone a good one) in ad­di­tion to all your lug­gage. But now there’s Air Pakk – a back­pack and pil­low in one.

The Air Pakk quickly and eas­ily trans­forms from bag to pil­low to mat­tress and back again, al­low­ing you to com­fort­ably re­lax wher­ever you are. The magic is in the self­in­flat­ing ad­justable pad­ding that also trans­forms the Air Pakk into a desk pil­low, work sta­tion and sleep­ing bag. The cover of the back­pack is re­mov­able.

It’ll set you back R1 000 when it be­comes avail­able
