What Gus Kenworthy Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hair spray and the electric toothbrush. We asked Gus Kenworthy — who recently partnered with cannabis-infused beverage company Cann — about the sunglasses that got him compliments at Coachella, the treats his dogs love, and the ice cream he can’t live without.

We have two dogs. Frank is a terrier mix who’s white and scruffy. And then Birdie is a Jindo mix who came from a dog-meat farm in Korea. I adopted her when I was there for the Olympics, and she’s a big, beautiful orange thing. These are their favorite treats. If I touch the Nulo treats, they’re in the kitchen immediately (and they don’t move as fast for other treats). They’ll sit and spin around and put out their paws without being prompted because they want one so bad. I also like Nulo because they make a good product without a bunch of added crap. But mostly it’s just that the dogs love them, and they’re finicky.

Since I’ve spent a lot of time in ski boots, I’ve always been pretty particular about my socks. I hate when I can feel the seams underneath my toes or heel. Stance’s are seamless. They’re well-made, don’t lose their elasticity, and fit really nicely. The sizing can be weird in other socks, but these have a lot of stretch while being snug. And a lot of the time, socks are either so boring or over the top in a way I would never actually wear. The Stance ones just look nice. My go-to outfit is gym shorts, a T-shirt, and tube socks — my socks are always on display.

I definitely like to rotate through glasses, but these are a departure from the more traditional frames I normally gravitate to. I like how aviators look on my face, but obviously, as a skier, I also like the fuller-framed ski goggles. These are in-between and look like glacier glasses you’d wear while ski touring and are pretty flattering. They also have great polarization. When I wore them to my first Coachella this year, not only did I get so many compliments, but people were asking me what brand they were and where they could buy them. It’s fun seeing this style getting popular again.
