The school year is quickly approaching, accompanied by the cries of a too-short summer break. That school-supplies list can look pretty boring—plain notebooks, yellow pencils, bland backpacks—so we here at the Gear Team think you should spice things up with some sweet, automotive-inspired options.
With this gear, you can rock the halls with a special style us car folks can appreciate. Maybe at school you'll meet other car fans who noticed your lunchbox of speed. Go out there and win the back-to-school race!
These days an important tool in a child's backpack might be a laptop. Protect it with this sweet Subaru WRC case. Though this sleeve probably won't protect the computer from a good old-fashioned Colin McRae thrashing, the foam interior should be great for backpack abuse.
This Ferrari-licensed phone case fits the iPhone 11 and is a cool way to show off passion for the Italian brand. With a silicon exterior and a microfiber interior, the case is geared less toward protection and more toward style. We love the look.
Skip the boring pastel two-pocket folders and get one with some speed. The Aventador J is one of the wildest Lambos out there, so of course we love seeing supplies emblazoned with its devilish mug.
Here's a a cheeky slogan to break the ice during those first days of classes. Built with a polyester shell and an internal laptop sleeve, this backpack has plenty of room for all the supplies.
We love stickers, especially this one from Blipshift. Stick it on a laptop, a water bottle, or a locker—you're bound to get some laughs.
You gotta have some new shirts for school, and this JDM top is perfect for fans of the car culture. It's even cooler if you have one in the parking lot.
Believe it or not, students still use journals. Maybe with a Porsche 911 GT3 on the cover, the notes inside will be as sharp as the car itself.
Muscle-car fans should consider this Mustang-themed set of supplies. It includes a notebook, a folder, and a pencil pouch to keep everything organized.
If your child is a fan of the Cars universe (who isn't?), this lunchbox is a great choice. The main compartment is insulated and zippers shut to protect sandwiches, snacks, and drinks.
This neat little case holds pencils, highlighters, and other implements all in one little sports-car-shaped organizer. With claims of being waterproof and shock-proof, this durable little case is a clever idea for school.
