We’re back with Issue 4 of the WearTesters Weekender! Coincidentally, our first topic will focus on the Shrine Weekender Sneaker Backpack and Duffel bag that are now available for pre-order on their site. Whether you are aware of their impending December shipment and release, caught Nightwing’s interview with them on the site this week, or had no idea about their product; we wanted to throw a spotlight on them!
The Shrine is a a lifestyle luggage company based in San Francisco, California. They intend to change the way you travel with aesthetically pleasing, well executed, high quality luggage pieces. Their initial inventory is sneaker enthusiast oriented as they allow you to stow and strap in multiple pairs of kicks for the road. The Weekender Backpack also allows you to store a laptop of tablet, toiletry’s, and a few days of clothing. Take a look at the video below for a little better idea of how the bag works and how much you can fit inside it.
The Shrine Weekender Sneaker Backpack and the Sneaker Duffel are both available for pre-order on the Shrine site for $199 and $185 respectively. They look like a well thought out and well designed product that can certainly fill a need in a sneaker enthusiasts life. Can’t we all think of a time when we were packing for a trip and couldn’t fit our sneakers and our clothes in the same bag?
Also, if you haven’t seen enough, check out Nightwing’s interview with the Shrine from earlier this week, let us know what you think of their brand! We appreciate good design and a group of talented individuals with a vision. There is always a niche to fill and a need to address in our day to day lives; the Shrine found one and seems to be solving it very well with their tasteful products. I’m impressed, are you?
Now, let’s highlight what you may have missed on the site this week. Be sure to follow the links and check them out if you didn’t catch them during the week.

This one is pretty self explanatory, check it out and hear all of Nightwing’s answers to community questions in round 2 of his new video series.
In closing, let’s get a discussion topic going for this week’s issue. What is your favorite part of the game of basketball? What gets you going for each game and each pickup run? When you step into the gym, lace up the shoes and step out there; what element of the game do you most look forward to? Be specific and be detailed, I think everyone will have a very interesting take on this. We want to hear it from our readers!
It was tough for me to narrow it down between distributing the ball to teammates and playing defense. I had to go with defense because it has been my calling card for a while now. In my eyes, the best part about defense is that it gives me the chance to ruin the end of the court that most players get the most enjoyment out of, offense. If a guy who has been feeling it in previous game or is excited to score a lot in pickup and then ends up having trouble to score at all, then it is a tremendous defensive victory. I don’t talk trash, I don’t hack or play dirty, I just defend with intensity up and down the court without any let downs. I get up for defense because it allows my conditioning, strength, and athleticism to shine through and make my mark on the game.
That’s my choice, what’s yours? I hope you enjoyed this week’s issue, be sure to comment and discuss below!
