After two years of development, Apolis expands its Transit Issue collection to include its first ever line of technical outerwear. Perfect for travel, the styles are made from lightweight, water-resistant materials and work great individually or layered together.
The Transit Issue Technical Outerwear collection is constructed in Poland and is launching with four essential pieces: a parka, bomber jacket, field jacket, and shirt jacket. Taped seams and reinforced zippers throughout the line keep you protected from the elements and their lightweight fabrics, even when worn together aren’t cumbersome or bulky.

We know it’s been a while since we last dropped a magazine bomb on all of ya, but we’re making up for our tardiness with absolute excellence. Issue 31 of Sneaker Freaker took over four months to craft and we reckon it shows! Every form of sneaker appetite should be sated by this one – we conducted a forensic investigation on how Nike’s notorious Air Max Plus (The ‘TN’) became such a beloved delinquent; got the word on Reebok’s 25th birthday party plans for the immortal Pump ball boot; and pulled up a pew and listened to an adidas super-fan recount his pilgrimage to Argentina to find some incredible hidden treasure sneaks. We also hunted down exotic animal leather aficionado and in-demand sneaker customiser, JBF, and learned about his design process and how he found himself stitching elephant and cobra skin into Jordans; as well as previewing stacks of new colabs from UNDFTD and ASICS, Ronnie Fieg and adidas, Concepts and New Balance, Patta and Diadora, and more. Every other brand that matters in the sneaker world, from K-Swiss and Etonic to Saucony and Fila have their moment in the spotlight in this issue too – we’ve really covered it all this time.
Great things take time, and we took ours so we could be truly proud of Issue 31, we hope you love it! Head over to our shop and grab the issue and we’ll have it sent to you hot off the press. After that, peep the gallery above for a preview of three of the cover options.

Their new Perspective Issue focuses on design and speaks with some of the biggest talents in the space including Nike’s Tinker Hatfield and famed Japanese fashion designer, Nigo:
“HYPEBEAST Magazine’s “The Perspective Issue” looks at iconic forms of design and explores its functionality and creative processes. Talking to designers, architects and engineers, our print title’s eighth issue explores what makes a design stand out, how it is used within our culture and where “design” relating to that culture is headed. Highlights from the magazine include a travel guide to Kyoto with a “wabi-sabi” twist, an interview with footwear designer Tinker Hatfield and a feature on NIGO’s relationship with collectible items. The issue also features in-depth looks at the automotive design house Pininfarina, furniture specialist Modernica, animator David O’Reilly and artist Samuel Burgess-Johnson, as well as seasonal styling shoots, product news and engaging editorials on today’s fashion and design landscape.”
