For the last few years, low – and no – ABV beverages have been on the rise. Whether it’s non-alcoholic beer, spirits or calming EOD drinks, a wide range of hangover-free flat and fizzy drinks have made their way onto bar carts across the country. So it should be no surprise that there’s now a new summer sparkler on the rise: hopped sparkling water. Admittedly, Lagunitas kicked off the trend with its 2019 Hoppy Refresher, but the new category seems to only be picking up more momentum. Fans can shop a hopped DayPaks from Athletic Brewing, and more detailed recipes (full of nootropics and adaptogens) from hop-dedicated brands like HOP WTR. Today we’re taking a look at Nike’s new Premier League ball, trail-ready shorts from Garphyttan and the newest sneakers from Balmain. This is Today in Gear.

This year, Nike’s official Premier League ball is steeped in nostalgia. The ball features the old Premier League logo, vintage sponsor detailing and ultimately pays homage to the 1992 Mitre ball used in the league’s first season. Built with AerowSculpt technology, the ball is designed to wobble less and travel more smoothly across the air and pitch. While the ball won’t be used until the league’s first games kick off in August, fans can bring home their own ball from the official Nike website on July 15.
