Cold weather is no excuse for allowing your good fashion sense to hibernate (another Saturday night in your Snuggie, really?). Show us what your best winter wardrobe looks like, and you could win a trip for 4 to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival!
Entering is easy:
- Go to Timberland’s Facebook page and upload a photo of your “mountain chic” style (I’m thinking Sound of Music meets Project Runway, but define it as you wish). Be sure to include a clever and descriptive caption, and be quick about it — the contest ends November 9th.
- Tell all your Facebook friends to go vote! The top 10 photos receiving the most public votes from all eligible entries will win a pair of Timberland boots and a chance to win the grand prize.
The Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the top 10 by Timberland judges based on the creativity and originality of both their style and their photo caption. Win the grand prize and you’ll be on your way to opening weekend at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with 3 BFFs to enjoy movie tickets, ski passes, spa packages and more. And since Timberland is the official footwear and outerwear sponsor of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, we’ll be sure to hook you up with Timberland footwear and gear for your big weekend away.
For complete contest rules and details, head over to our Facebook page. Then stay tuned – we’ll be back next month to announce the winner!
While they were out testing their LiteTrace footwear, our outdoor product team stopped to perform some trail-side “community service” and rebuilt a couple of cairns. What’s a cairn? Our team will explain:
Humbling: we’re pretty proud of the way our LiteTrace products perform, and of the innovative technologies and materials they contain … but when it comes to finding your way on a foggy mountain, our fancy footwear has nothing over a plain old pile of rocks.
To bring us entertaining reports from the Toronto International Film Festival last month, video bloggers Amanda and Ramsey had to spend a lot of time on their feet. Thanks to their Timberland footwear, they were able to tackle Toronto in style and in comfort:
Love the kicks? Shop for yourself: Ramsey’s Earthkeepers 2.0 Cupsole Chukka and Amanda’s Stratham Heights Tall Boot both feature recycled rubber outsoles, leather from a Silver-rated tannery, and our exclusive anti-fatigue technology for extra cushion and comfort. Amanda’s also got our suspension heel technology, which makes for happy feet (and a happy Amanda!).
If you don’t know Robert, you don’t know what you’re missing. He’s a plastic bottle, “action artist” extraordinaire and the real star (he would tell you) of our Nature Needs Heroes TV commercial:
We were fortunate enough to be able to catch up with Robert on the set and get his uncensored thoughts about being a superstar stuntman … including what it’s like to work with incompetent co-stars:
If you like Robert, you should like us on Facebook (Timberland US is here, Timberland Europe is here). Once you do, you’ll unlock the full series of Robert’s “Lost Bottle” videos. While you’re there, don’t forget to vote for your favorite pair of Earthkeeper footwear – we’ll report back on the Facebook Favorite later this month.
Did you know that in our store in Milan, Italy you’ll find a 1930s wooden wardrobe from Oxford University? Or that our store on Newbury Street in Boston was built in an old school house? There’s more than meets the eye when you walk into a Timberland store — and now you can get the inside scoop from the comfort of your couch, your desk, your Wi-Fi enabled train ride to work… you get the idea.
Announcing the launch of the new Sustainable Store Design section of our website! It’s packed with information about what goes into building a Timberland store – from materials, to building standards, to more fun facts from our new stores around the world. You can even explore a virtual Timberland store:
So go on – take the Sustainable Store tour and let us know what you think. Who knows? Maybe you’ll walk away with inspiration for some eco-conscious home improvement for that bathroom/kitchen/living room you’ve been dying to renovate!
Plenty of people love our products, but they’re not always clear on the technology that makes those products perform as well as they do. And when you’re buying a Timberland product, either in a store or on our website, wouldn’t it be nice to know what symbols like these really mean?
That’s why we’ve created the Timberland Technology Guide – chock full of videos, illustrations and explanations about the materials and technologies we use to meet specific needs, how they work, and why we love them. We’ve designed the online tech guide to be as user-friendly as possible: the site groups our technology by product (footwear, apparel, gear) and also by benefit (warm, dry, comfort, traction, tough, eco-conscious) — so no matter what you’re looking for, you’re bound to find technology that supports it.
Better still, once you’re done learning about how we use SmartWool or Bionic Canvas, you can click right through to shop for the products that feature that technology. It’s like having your own dedicated gear head and personal shopper, rolled into one.
Check out the Timberland tech guide for yourself and then tell us – which product benefit (warm, dry, comfort, traction, tough, eco-conscious) is most important to you?
