It’s quickly becoming the time of year where we have to limit our sneaker usage. We stow away our custom New Balance US574’s, our beat up pair of Vans and break out some more durable options. Even though they are approaching the two-hundo mark, the 12/67 3 Eye Chukka from SeaVees is exactly the kind of option we’re looking for. Drawing inspiration from The Graduate, SeaVees took the classic Chukka and basically broke them in for you. They’re unlined and deconstructed so they won’t feel stiff and rip up your ankles like an old school pair of roller skates, and the outsole is crafted from genuine plantation crepe (we had to look it up too) which in layman’s terms means they’re soft. While it’s not guaranteed, it’s a pretty safe assumption that they’ll make you cougar bait just like Dustin Hoffman.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
