Speaking of eye-catching prototypes, Toronto-based Jacknife Design has developed a brilliant skate concept based on archives of vintage Canadian models. A blend of titanium, stainless steel, and full-grain leather on the outside, and heat-formed memory foam on the inside, the goal was modern-day comfort and performance with a streamlined, classic aesthetic. If I happened to live in a city like Ottawa where the downtown canal freezes over during the winter, these would definitely become a part of my daily commute. (via Sharp)
