If you’d best describe your style as “understated” but you care about the quality of the stuff you wear, these sneakers from Shoes Like Pottery might be up your alley. The simplistic kicks are hand-sewn and hand-assembled over in Japan, but what makes them really unique is the vulcanizing process. Each shoe is fired in a kiln at 248 degrees for 70 minutes causing the sulfur mixed in with the raw rubber to react resulting in an elastic, soft, and durable sole (it’s science). Each has a rubber seal stamped on the side and sports canvas uppers. If you don’t mind dropping $155 on a new pair of sneakers, you could do far worse.

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.
