What Michael Strahan 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 hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Michael Strahan, of ABC’s Good Morning America, about his love for the DuoTrac golf app, hypoallergenic pillow, and moisturizing oxygen cream.

These earbuds not only look great — everything Master and Dynamic just has the most incredible style — but they sound great, even when you’re traveling or at the gym (which is the true test). The earbuds are so high-quality that they feel like bespoke headphones. They came out with a pair of Bluetooth versions that I can’t wait to try, too.

I’m a golfer, and I use the DuoTrac to help me fix my swing when my form is off. If you golf, you know that when you’re slicing the ball and can’t make good contact, it’s not fun at all. This is a set of three little sensors that you hook onto either side of your hips on your belt and then at the end of your club. Then, through an app on your phone, it’ll tell you when you’re leaning too far into it or if you’re dropping your shoulder, or what have you. Amateurs or pros, which is what I consider myself (that’s a joke), can benefit from it. It’s amazing. Now you don’t even have to have all the cameras hooked up to check your form. This would be an incredible gift for the golfer you’re shopping for.

When you’re on TV and talk a lot, the one thing you can’t have is chapped lips — especially with HD TV. Burt’s always feels great and helps your lips to look the way they should.

I just recently came across The Arrivals and even though I’m usually wearing my own line of MSX clothing, almost everything in the line is excellent. My favorite is the bomber. It gives you swagger! You wear this and you can be casual but also dressed up.

I love a John Varvatos henley, man. A day doesn’t go by in the wintertime when I don’t have one on. For someone my size — I’m 6’5” — who can’t roll into a store and buy off the rack, it’s incredible that it feels like it was made just for me. It’s also just a little modern and rock and roll.

I’m always on the run, and when I can’t sit down and really eat, I’ll have a protein bar to fill that void. My favorite is the Cookies and Cream, especially post-gym or when I’m trying to tide me over before the next meal. [Editor’s note: Daniel Radcliffe is a fan of these, too.] Especially around this time of year when you’re having all these big holiday meals, a Quest bar is nice for keeping you from going too overboard.

It’s hard enough to get a good night’s sleep, but if you have allergies, it can be impossible. I didn’t even know I had allergies until I got a bit older. It sucks to get older and have to sneeze. This pillow helps with that so much, and anything that can help me sleep better with my hectic schedule is winning in my book.

Jai makes the best facial products out there. When you wear TV makeup six days a week, and have the powders and anti-shine and everything else they put on you, the Jai cream is incredible at restoring all the moisture you need. It never breaks me out, and I’ve used a lot of stuff.

So this rolling luggage is lightweight and has slots for your laptop, tiedowns for your clothes, and even compartments for wet clothes for when you go to the gym. I travel so much during the year for work that creating the ideal piece of luggage was important for me personally to work on. We perfected the lining, the wheels, the weight — all the little details to make travel that much less stressful.
