Nike-Free-Trainer-5

Nike has been engineering, over-engineering and re-engineering everything from footwear to wristwear for as long as we can remember, but if they’re “in the zone” like never before. This pair of shoes is more than just a well-designed, cool looking, sure to be on the feet of some dude in a suit on a #menswear blog inside a month, pair of sneakers. It’s a scientifically engineered extension of your body based on the principle of the Chinese finger trap. It’s soft and flexible when at rest, but tight during explosive movement. It sounds like marketing crap, but the combination of the weave, the Free 5.0 sole and traction outsole actually provide added support and stability while in motion. At least that’s what Nike promises. You can judge for yourself on March 28 when they’re released.

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.
