Tretorn Tournament Net Sneakers; $65

The Quick Refresh

Herban Essentials Lemon Towelettes; $7

In a city, there are a number of reasons you might need a little refresh (for example, subway handrails… need we say more?). These individually packaged hand wipes are made with essential oils and are naturally antibacterial and antiseptic.

Just trust us: You’re going to want to have an auxiliary phone charger on standby. Because having Google Maps turned on all day will have you at 1 percent in no time, and you know you’re going to want to do a lot of Instagramming.
