Shoes are totally wasteful, but everyone’s gotta have ’em. So, sustainability has to be part of the game, and Converse just gave their classic Chucks a new interpretation using undyed factory scraps of upcycled raw cotton canvas for membership into their Renew line. The rather sophisticated “Egret” hued shoes also get rough seams for a more organic look. Even the use of rubber and metal is minimized by replacing the toe cap and eyelets with thicker thread and additional canvas. Both the Chuck 70 Hi and the low-top Chuck 70 Ox also have zero leather in the construction. Even the rubber outsoles are made from recycled materials. Over time, the fabric will take on a vintage patina that will only add to the character of these mindful and stylish sneaks.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
