Converse sneakers, particularly iconic Chucks, have seen plenty of iterations over the past few years that are worth talking about. This latest variation, the Urban Utility Hiker, joins the ranks of the Chuck Taylor All Star 100, Waterproof Thermo-Boots and Nubuck options in that they’re still obviously Chucks, but they’re built for situations you wouldn’t normally expect to be wearing sneakers in. It’s clear from the looks and build quality that the Converse Urban Utility Chuck 70 Utility Hiker is a shoe more on the utilitarian side. Gore-Tex seam sealed membrane for waterproof capabilities. Elastic closure with cotton laces for a secure fit. Fused upper with reflective panel for visibility. But Nike/Converse didn’t skimp on the stylish details either, because the safety orange sockliner doesn’t seem to serve any other purpose than being a cool pop of color against the shoe, and they didn’t sacrifice anything in the sleek silhouette department with all the new technical additions. This is another pair of iconic Chucks you can wear just about anywhere.

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.
