3 Must Haves This Holiday Season

Three items to remember when you start assembling that holiday wish list.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: These got swag written all over them.


The Cardiac 2 watch from Puma should earn a spot on your list. This bad boy looks modern enough for the club, but utilitarian enough to manage your workout. It has both a heart rate monitor and an ECG sensor. If you don’t know what that is don’t worry most non-runners won’t. It’s water resistant and comes with a calorie counter too. Overall, great look and tons of functionality. Plus, with a 2-year warranty from Puma you don’t have to be worried all that technology is going to break on you the first time you hit the ground. 


Lets keep it going with the Converse by John Varvatos Weapons. These feature one of the most classic basketball silhouettes with the look a feel perfect for some off the court swagger in front of the ladies. The burnished leather looks rugged and worn, but the subtle star and chevron logo keep them street tested. These are a must have this holiday season. They will run you $170, so definitely put these near the top of your list. You can grab them online at


The EVO One is a great tool for those looking to not just enjoy basketball, but actually work on their own shot. It reminds the shooter with a little double-beep to maintain the rotation on your shot. Get more information and purchase info at the Evo One parent company.
