I’m not gonna lie: I love stuff. Stuff is cool! So, I’ve got a lot of it. But some stuff is just way more important to me, compared to the other stuff.
Saying I couldn’t live without it is a bit cliché and obviously not completely true (except for oxygen, which I’m pretty into), but it’s 100% the case that my life would be significantly crappier without my absolute, favorite stuff -- kicks representing the greatest basketball player ever to receive 41 technical fouls in a season, toy cars that can travel back (and forward!) in time, and craft beer from Colorado, where I spent a few post-college years either studying atomic physics in Boulder or working at a bar in Denver (whichever you want to believe).
When I checked out the latest from Timberland, I thought, all right, some of this gear could be fast-tracked straight into my stuff pantheon, because a man can't live on basketball-related footwear and beer alone.
