Spring Footwear from Cushe

10 03 2010

My friends and family might call me a city boy now, but before I moved to the Big Apple, I spent my time running barefoot through the back country of Mississippi.  And to this day, whenever I can, I still love walking barefoot.  Not only is it a great way to build the muscles in your feet, it feels so much better than having your feet squeezed inside shoes.   Still, I don’t usually have the luxury of walking around barefoot in the city, so when warm weather rolls around, I opt for shoes that can be easily slid on and off.

With spring quickly approaching, and summer not far behind, it’s time to start stocking up on some comfortable footwear.  One of my new favorite brands is Cushe, creators of high-end sneakers, sandals and slippers.  Their new Coastal Supremacy Collection, available now, is inspired from board sports, surf, skate and coastal living.  The premium materials and unique designs make this the perfect footwear for any “man-venture.”

Here are a few of my favorite styles from the collection.

Style: Manuka Webb, $50

Style: Manuka Fearless, $34

Style: Manuka Eden, $95

Style: Manuka Drift, $85

What do you think?  Will you be adding a pair of Cushe sandals or shoes to your summer wardrobe?  Tell us about your other favorite brands for spring/summer.

Will Ferrell Bares It All…for Charity

9 06 2009

Will Ferrell as a penchant for public displays of nudity, but now he’s putting what mother nature gave, or didn’t give him to some good use by baring it all for Will Ferrell Sunscreen, a brand new sunscreen line benefiting Cancer for College’s Willpowered Scholarship Fund in their continued mission to grant college scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees.

“We are obviously appealing to sun worshippers, streakers, art lovers and the ever growing market of body-building golfers,” said Ferrell. “We hope that everyone will see the humor in this product and join us in support of a very worthy cause.”

The collection includes Sunstroke, Will Ferrell’s Sexy Hot Tan and Forbidden Fruit SPF 30, and can be purchased at Amazon, eBay and www.cancerforcollege.org starting at $11.99.

So until Anchorman 2 comes to fruition, get your Ferrell fix – and sun protection – by slathering Will Ferrell’s Forbidden Fruit all over your face.

Grooming: Memorial Day Fun in the Sun Skin Protection

18 05 2009

Memorial Day is just a week away, but before you pack up and head to the beach for a long weekend in the sun, it’s time to stock up on your sun protection arsenal.  And while there are a myriad of options at your local drugstore, the following are some of my favorites. 

Every Man Jack
Every Man Jack, the line that has been bringing affordable grooming to the masses at Target stores nationwide, has just launched their new SPF collection, which includes a Face Lotion SPF 15, Body Lotion SPF 30 and a dual-pack Lip Balm SPF 15.  The line is enriched with aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate while a combo of octinoxate, octisalate and oxybenzone provide broad spectrum protection from aging UVA and burning UVB rays. 
Retail Price: $5.00 each
Available at Target and www.EveryManJack.com

Mercola
Mercola Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 implements a secret recipe from the people of Acapulco.  The all-natural formula is a great alternative to common chemical-laden sunscreens. Blended with rich oils, soothing compounds and antioxidant-rich green tea, this sunscreen nourishes and moisturizes skin, protecting it from sunburn, while reducing sun damage. 
Retail Price: $18.97
Available at www.Mercola.com

JOCK SOAP
Jock Block™, part of the M.V.P Advanced Skincare Collection, is a gentle, non-greasy moisturizing formula that combines the newest nano and bio-technologies.  If that sounds too advanced, all you really need to know is that it provides full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays while blocking over 85 percent of all forms of UV rays.  My favorite part is that this sunblock doesn’t clog pores, so you won’t have to worry about skin breakouts, or sunburns for that matter, when you return to the office
Retail Price: $32.00
Available at www.GetJock.com
