If Amazon is an overcrowded house party where everybody gets through the door and every drink on the planet is haphazardly sitting behind the bar, Huckberry by contrast represents a spacious, still rocking soirée where the guests are lightly vetted and every drink is handcrafted and delicious. Don’t get us wrong–raucous house parties can be tops, but today we’re in the mood for a more curated shopping experience.
For this month’s Huckberry Finds, we scoped some products that would suit all you sporty commuters out there. You’re the ones who wake up an hour early to hit the gym before taking the train to work, or you hop on the bike and pedal into the city, killing two birds with one stone. You’re best served by gear that combines stellar form with equally stellar function, and Huckberry is here to serve you. Read on and do a little shopping because you deserve it.

York Athletics Mfg Henry Low Sneaker
Elevating the modern sneaker into a thing of practical beauty is the Henry Low from York Athletics.

Put all those materials together and throw on a subtle contrasting colourway and you have a breathable, approachable, brilliant lightweight running shoe.
Bellroy 15” Laptop Sleeve
Bellroy is a personal favourite of ours and not just because they started in our native Australia. It’s because the brand simply masters the art of creating classic leather goods without resorting to big gimmicky gestures. The Bellroy 15” Laptop Sleeve is no exception. Made with woven fabric and top-grain leather and featuring no zips or buttons (it shuts using a magnetic closure), this is as clean, unfettered and premium as a laptop sleeve can get. Buy it now, show it off and then watch your mates and co-workers buy their own soon after.

Woodman’s Pal Military Premium Axe Multi-Tool
We’ll be honest: we’re not exactly sure how this striking 16.5” multi-tool fits in with the whole commuter theme, but we’ll be damned if it isn’t a beautiful symphony of stainless steel and smooth leather that performs with the utmost degree of precision. Maybe don’t take it to the office or gym, though.

Bellroy Note Sleeve Wallet
It took Bellroy nearly a year to get this one just right, which is an extraordinarily long time to produce a wallet. However, the proof is in the pudding and the pudding is downright delicious.

Norton Point Current Sunglasses
These brilliant shades from Norton Point come equipped with all the latest features such as polarised lenses, anti-reflective coating and 100% UVA/UVB protection.

And then of course there’s the fact that they look amazing.
