5 bb0377 amb 801 pdNike Pure Grip Basketball ($35)
Calling time out during a pick-up game in order to Purell your hands is at best bad form, and at worst an invitation to be pummeled. So if you’re an OCD case — or if you just need an awesome new ball — pick up the Nike Pure Grip. Its ionized synthetic-leather hide is specially designed to repel dirt, and also improves grip for less slippage when you’re throwing down monster dunks … or throwing up humiliating air balls.
