Products of the Week: Shackburgers, Fitbits and William Murray Coolers
The 12 best pieces of garb and gear that crossed our desks this week
Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of them. Today: Shackburgers delivered to your door, a new Fitbit and a cooler to bring on the faraway.
UV Phone Sanitizer
Ultraviolet lights can kill pretty much any germs or bacteria on your phone — which, btw, is probably the item you’re touching the most everyday. So we highly suggest investing in one of these, which doubles as a wireless charger and can also disinfect anything phone-sized or smaller that you throw in there (earpods, keys, credit cards, etc.). And to be fair to Totallee, they admit up front that “Our sanitizer kills germs and bacteria, but we do not currently have a way to test its effectiveness against COVID19.”
Tom x Outerknown Lagoon
While the beach now feels like a distant memory for some of us, you can at the very least pretend you’re there with this latest collaboration from Outerknown and TOMS. The Lagoon flip-flops are outfitted with a cushy sole made from BLOOM algae foam, which helps to remove unnecessary algae from aquatic environments to keep them clean and healthy. The sandal’s straps are also made from recycled material, ECONYL, which helps to keep nylon waste (such as forgotten fishing nets) from ending up in the ocean or in landfills. In other words, it’s a shoe that aligns perfectly with both brand’s commitment to sustainability and social impact. Shop them in Navy, Forged Iron and Caramel Brown
Shake Shack ShackBurger, 8 Pack
For the first time ever, online food market Goldbelly is bringing the burger we all know, love and miss dearly straight to our grills. Now you can make your very own Shackburger at home with Shake Shack’s custom blend of fresh, hormone- and antibiotic-free, 100% Angus beef from Pat LaFrieda. Next to the beef, the kit includes 8 non-GMO Martin’s Potato Rolls, 8 slices of American cheese and of course, 4 oz. of Shake Shack’s iconic ShackSauce. That’s 8 nights of mouth-watering beefy bliss.
Igloo x William Murray Cooler
Igloo is not about to take the cooler coup from Yeti sitting down. To show that even the company behind the “Playmate” has an edgier side, Igloo teamed up with Bill Murray’s golf apparel brand to collab on a Tartan plaid nine-can carrier. They appear to be sold out at the moment, but enter your email for updates on when they’re back in stock.
Fitbit Charge 4 Fitness and Activity Tracker with Built-in GPS
If you want something a little more wallet-friendly than an Apple Watch, the new Charge 4 might be your ideal activity/sleep tracker. Featuring 20 exercise modes, the built-in GPS helps you see your pace and distance on screen during outdoor runs; you’ll even get a “buzz” when you reach your target heart rate. And since you’re not always on the move, the Charge also allows for Spotify controls and call/text/app notifications.
Peanuts X J.Crew
J. Crew did some digging through the Peanuts archive to create this limited-edition collection that has us really dreaming of summer. The collection includes a surfer Snoopy hoodie and 5 tees, featuring Franklin, Pigpen and various beach-going Snoopys.
Buffalo Trace Kosher
We all deserve a good drink. So we applaud Buffalo Trace’s new rye bourbon, wheat bourbon and straight rye releases, which are considered the “first authentic kosher whiskies.” According to The Spirits Business, whiskey was placed in new American oak kosher barrels in 2012, and when the spirit matured, the bottling lines at the distillery were flushed completely beforehand to ensure the liquid was “not exposed to any non-kosher spirits.” This is a new annual release, available after Passover. L’chaim.
We love a free canvas tote. Suffice to say we were quite pleased to learn of cult brand Entireworld’s City Totes, now free with every purchase. The canvas totes are emblazoned with either New York or Los Angeles (hence their moniker) and feature brightly contrasted fronts and backs accompanied by bold lettering, keeping true to the brand’s aesthetic of conspicuous hues. And if your heart is really just after the tote, you can go ahead and get it for $20.
Rowing Blazers x Hood
Looking for a dope way to support and show love for your favorite neighborhood? Rowing Blazers’ latest collab with Los Angeles headwear brand Hood has got you covered (literally). This collection of 100% Merino wool snapbacks proudly displays some beloved spots — from Silver Lake to Bed-Stuy, Sun Valley to St. Tropez, South Beach to Aspen — in script lettering and a variety of colors.
Todd Snyder x New Balance Chalk Stripe 997
In an effort to evoke the more desirable kicks of the 1970s, Todd Snyder has collaborated with New Balance to create the exclusive 997 Chalk Stripe. You’re probably more than familiar with the ubiquitous 997 silhouette from New Balance and now it’s been elevated with white patent leather and snakeskin accents. They’re clean, without being boring. Go ahead, channel your inner Bjorn Borg and get a pair below.
Henry Pajama Set
Sleepy Jones has always been a bit of an enigma to some people. Luxury pajamas and loungewear? Who needs that? Well, now we all do for the foreseeable future. The brand’s tailored pjs are the perfect compromise between comfort and style, especially this new so-crazy-it-just-might-work set in “aloha floral.” Put these on and blast “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”
Jumanji Replica Board Game
There was nothing more disappointing as a child than to discover that the Jumanji board game released in conjunction with the classic 1995 movie (the only Jumanji as far as we’re concerned) was not an intricate, mysterious wooden box. It was just some lame cardboard foldout like everything else. Finally, for the 25th anniversary of the film, some fans are raising money for a real-deal replica on Kickstarter — spooky drums and everything.
