If you’re all about living the three-stripe life, Adidas has created a new, innovative sportswear line that all of the world’s star athletes are wearing.

Adidas Z.N.E. is a collection of inventive, clean, and contemporary pieces that infuse an urban athletic style with our unrivaled sport DNA. It’s a hoodie and sweats combo that has been reinvented and taken to a completely different level beyond basic active-wear.

Z.N.E.’s advertising campaign includes the likes of NBA athletes James Harden and Andrew Wiggins, Super Bowl champion Aaron Rodgers, and world-class footballer Gareth Bale, all modeling the new line in their respective sports. The purpose of the new line is to help athletes stay focused while eliminating the unnecessary distractions that plague our active lives.

The Z.N.E. hoodie and pants combo isn’t just beneficial to your game or workout. It’s a stylish, fashion-forward look for athletes and fitness junkies alike. The line is constructed with next level craftsmanship that features soft, heavyweight fabric to increase comfort and enable the athlete to focus. Even after the final whistle, Z.N.E. is engineered for those moments beyond the game.

The most sought after piece from this collection if the full-zip white hoodie. It isn’t just your ordinary hoodie – It’s a luxury hoodie built with an extra attention to detail. Inside the oversized hood of the sweatshirt are earhole spaces for your headphones which are great for concealing your phone and earbud cords. That paired with thumbholes in the sleeves ensure ultimate coverage in blocking out distractions.

The hoodie comes in five different colorways. You can choose from white, ice blue, collegiate navy, black, and olive cargo, with white being the most popular. Some extra features include front zip pockets, a high funnel neck for extra weather protection, pre-shaped sleeves for added range of motion, and quality four-way stretch fabric.

This is undoubtedly the best hoodie that you’ll ever wear, and the nearly 200 reviews on Adidas’ site will back up that claim. This hoodie registers 4.7 out of 5 stars and is recommended by 96 percent of those who purchase it. The commonality between users’ reviews – it’s comfortable, well-worth the price, and one of the highest quality hoodies that money can buy.

There are many more products from the Z.N.E. line beyond the hoodie. Adidas has just added new clima-heat products that keep you warm and insulated while out in the elements which makes it the perfect choice for athletes in cold weather climates.

If you’re looking to add style and functionality to your everyday workout, look no further than Adidas’ Z.N.E. collection.

Audemars Piguet releases several new watches for 2024
Audemars Piguet Mini Oak collection

Audemars Piguet, which has headquarters in Le Brassus, Switzerland, was founded in 1875 in Vallée de Joux by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. Just like its peers Rolex and Patek Philippe, the brand is known for superb craftsmanship and simply its name in general, with many people buying it as their first watch when they come into money.

Audemars Piguet is a brand known for some of the most expensive watches in the world, with the likes of Tom Brady, Ed Sheeran, and LeBron James sporting one. It has also become known for celebrity collaborations, including with John Mayer and Travis Scott's Cactus Jack.

Audemars Piguet has just come out with several new watch releases, each more dazzling than the next (quite literally.)

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
