A classic look meets modern comfort with the Gitman Vintage Made in USA Center Hi. It starts with the timeless Center Hi sneaker silhouette from PF Flyers which is outfitted with locally sourced, 100% American made, 'seed to sew' cotton denim to create a standout shoe. Premium pig skin lining, vertically ribbed toe guards, and lightweight injection molded footbeds complete each pair, while more subtle features like a green embroidered top eyelet, chalk colored eyelets, and nylon green heel tape with zig zag stitching show the attention to detail that help set both brands apart. PF Flyers and denim — two American icons in one attractive, comfortable package.

Cutting grass is a common chore, yet few folks who claim to live "green" realize their gas mower puts out more pollution in an hour than several cars combined. The Sunlawn EM-2 Electric Mower ($380) is powered by two easily replaceable 12-volt SLA batteries that let the mower run for more than a full hour on a single charge. Its seven-blade cutting system keeps your lawn looking great, and the relatively silent operation lets you mow at any hour without disturbing the neighbors.
It's always great to find something that has literally hundreds of uses (even if it is named something like this). Jig-A-Loo ($7 at Home Depot stores) is an invisible, odorless, stain-free, lubricant and water repellent that'll take care of just about any job around the house. Invented in Quebec in 1958, this miracle spray is now available in the states for the first time. It works on wood, metal, leather, most plastics and tons of other surfaces. Not to sound like an infomercial, but it lubricates, prevents rust and freeze, waterproofs, de-squeaks and just makes things operate smoother.
