Civic-Duty-Shoes

Tyvek is the building material equivalent of duct tape. Come to think of it, if more things were made of the durable, waterproof material that coats houses pre-siding and FedEx uses to ship stuff, the world probably wouldn’t need as much duct tape. You can find Tyvek wallets and bags and sacks and packing material and obviously it’s good for protecting houses during construction and shipping, but there has to be more uses for DuPont’s magic material. The people behind Civic Duty thought the same thing so they decided to use it to make sneakers. Using environmentally friendly glues and dyes and pre-wrinkled Tyvek, Civic Duty has created a complete line of unisex sneakers that will give Cons a run for their money when it comes to staying power. Everything from bright yellow high-tops to familiar toe-capped low-tops is available decked out in Tyvek.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
