Germany has a reputation for great design and, thankfully, two juggernaut brands are only increasing their overall portfolio for us to admire. PUMA and Porsche have recently collaborated on a new sneaker to celebrate the 1911 Carrera RS 2.7. This legendary car was first released in 1972 and quickly became stuff of legends. The 1911 had all the makings for a success: a light, speedy thing with sexy lines and a dash of European irreverence that made Porsche a household name.

Now, PUMA’s limited edition sneaker takes many of these elements and applies them to their classic sneaker. Red leather lines and laces contrast against the white upper and sole to make this a classic combination. It’s subtle and made for everyday wear, with only the slightest bit of cobranding at the heel. What’s more, purchase of the shoe gets you entry into the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart to see the 1911 Carrera RS 2.7 for yourself. With only 500 units made, these bad boys have gone fast – but the resale market is looking good. Just put some pedal to the metal if you see them listed anywhere. They’re sure to be an instant classic, just as the 1911 was 50 years ago.

We don’t know much about math. But we do know that when Keeper’s Heart announced they’d be making an Irish Whiskey + Bourbon bottle, we were intrigued. It’s here, and it is a simply stunning combination. Brian Nation (formerly of Jameson, Redbreast and Midleton whiskeys and now Keeper’s Heart master distiller) teamed up with David Perkins (the founder of High West distillery) to create this smooth, yet complex combo of Irish + Bourbon. It’s truly a marriage made in whiskey heaven. Pick up a bottle today.
