We've seen our fair share of rare whiskey releases and auctions, but we have to admit: We never expected Kroger (yes, the grocery store chain) to host one of the biggest bourbon auctions we've ever seen. First things first, this is technically the second edition of this event, named The Ultimate Bourbon Auction to End Hunger. As the name implies, the proceeds are directed toward ending hunger in the areas where Kroger operates. With some of the rarest and most-desirable whiskeys on the market — including the full 2021 releases of the Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique collections — it's not just a staggering lot of the biggest names in whiskey, it's all in the pursuit of doing a bit of good. While we keep an eye on the list of items appearing at the upcoming auction, we've got our eyes on Hydrow's world-class workout machine, the release of The Macallan's Fine & Rare 1990 and the fitness tracker that will tell you when not to workout. This is Today in Gear.

Stüssy teams up with Dr. Martens for a boot that looks an awful lot like another beloved workwear boot...

Don't let its streetwear history fool you, Stüssy is one of the most-consistent (see: great) brands in modern menswear. This includes its series of collaborations, working with partners like Dr. Martens. While we love Dr. Martens classic 939 Boot (the main canvas of this collab), it's ironic that, for a premiere workwear-inspired collaboration boot, the duo basically just created a punched-up flip on a pair of "Wheat" Timberlands.

The Macallan

Started in 2002, The Macallan Fine & Rare collection stands as an example of the label's legacy, consisting of 58 individual releases that stretch across 80 years. The latest entry to this storied collection is a bottle celebrating the year 1990, featuring whiskey that was matured in single sherry seasoned American oak butt cask for 30 years, and is limited to just 467 bottles worldwide.


These mugs aren't just meant for your morning coffee, they're works of art.

Retailer Food52 recently returned with its (cleverly named) Mugs52 program, dropping pottery that's designed to be more than just a vessel for your morning cup of java. Designed by 52 separate pottery studios and artists, each mug shows off each organization or individual's personal style and aesthetics. Available to all, but produced in limited quantities, each item is truly a work of art.


Wait, a fitness tracker that even tells you when *not* to workout?
fitbit readiness tracker

There's a swell of fitness trackers that are ready and able to give you a full rundown health statistics, but how many signal when it's time to take a break? Fitbit's new Daily Readiness Score — rolling out on select devices today. The score tracks sleep time, heart rate variability and general activity to help users determine if they're energized enough for a workout — even suggesting workout intensity level.
