Non-matching shoes from CHOOZECan't find the other shoe for a matching pair? The pattern on your school backpack doesn't match your mood? Not a problem with CHOOZE. Based on the theory that conforming to ordinary, makes you, well ordinary, the company is selling mismatched shoes and reversible backpacks. "The simple act of wearing two different shoes inspires confidence and creativity and encourages people to think differently, to change their perspective and to be open to new ideas", reads CHOOZE literature. The children's and women's shoes and baby booties are vegan based. Prices range from $22-60 for the shoes and $40-44 for the backpacks. Available now. http://www.choozeshoes.com

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune. — Brett Prettyman
