Smart investments lead to intelligent choices.
If you aren’t familiar with ‘Baller Picks’, there’s no better time than the present to get acquainted. Our staff gather their favourite items of the week. Whether it be a t-shirt, coffee machine or fitness wearable. There’s no limit to what picks make our staff’s recommendations. There’s only one rule; the items must represent the best among their other compatriots. It’s also important to note that none of the recommendations arrive from paid sponsorship; all these products have been independently chosen to give you the confidence that we aren’t just picking pieces based on bias. This week we feature the best of tech, sneakers, a pending winter wardrobe and a party-starter essential.
Let’s take a look at this week’s baller picks.

WHITE GOLD AJ1 SHOE PENDANT
We know it may seem like an accessory you don’t need; however, it’s quite the opposite. An iconic shoe meets an iconic pendant, and there’s nothing like a complete outfit. Pair this pendant with a bomber jacket or the sweater above, and you’ll have people scanning you from top to bottom. It’s bold, it’s daring and may work for you in ways you never thought possible. Show some dare with the accessory.
