DAS BOOT: The Ashland Boot by OTBT is a perfect in-between seasons boot: its lightweight grey canvas makes a good thermal upgrade from flip flops, without having the full-on cold-weather utility of a leather boot. And its recycled-tire sole makes eco-sense. In stock at Greenpoint’s Alter, $89.00. 140 Franklin Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn; 718-349-0203.

TOP MODELS: Loving this set of postcards depicting New York City icons – from a deli cart to the Brooklyn Bridge – each of which does double-duty (with scissors and a dab of glue) as a fun 3-D model. The Make City: New York set of five 4"x6" cards is $6 at Flight 001, 96 Greenwich Avenue, 212-989-0001.

MONKEY SEE: Kicking off today is Japanese streetwear retailer A Bathing Ape’s pop-up Pirate Store: Score discounts on Nigo-designed wearables for men and women, plus footwear and accessories – from archived items to factory ends, lots of loot for all. Through September 7 at 286 Lafayette Street.
