Walk With Me: The Marcus Troy Experience

Last month, Timberland convened a group of creative influencers, led by lifestyle and fashion journalist Marcus Troy, for a unique outdoor journey designed to take them from nature to city and back again.  Against the backdrop of Timberland Canada’s headquarters in Toronto, we outfitted our group of ten trendsetters in Timberland gear, including the Earthkeepers City Premium boot and GT Scramble and led them on a 2.8 mile hike through some of the city’s most beautiful settings.

During the day, each participant was tasked with taking pictures and capturing the experience through their own creative lens.  The result is a series of phenomenal images and perspectives that live on Marcus Troy’s website.

What does an urban outdoor journey look like through the eyes of influencers like Karla Moy, William Yan, Shane Stirling and Bryan Espiritu?  Immerse yourself in the Marcus Troy Experience to find out.

From Everest to Iditarod: Cindy Abbott’s Incredible Journey

Cindy Abbott is a wife and a mother with some “normal” hobbies and interests (ballroom dancing, SCUBA diving and cheering on the San Diego Chargers) … and others that are not so normal.  In 2010, Cindy summited Mount Everest, and she’s currently in training for the 1150-mile Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska.

More extraordinary?  Cindy was diagnosed in 2007 with Wegener’s Granulomatosis – a rare and incurable form of vasculitis that affects the nose, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.  She’s functionally blind in her left eye and suffers extreme joint pain, fatigue and circulation issues because of the disease.

Not really the kind of person you’d expect to be summiting Mount Everest or braving the extreme conditions of the Iditarod, is she?

When we first heard about Cindy and her remarkable story, we did what bootmakers do (naturally): We sent her some boots.  As she trains to compete in the “Last Great Race on Earth,” her feet will stay warm and dry in a pair of our Earthkeepers Stratton Tall boots.

Cindy’s motivation for taking on these incredible challenges is simply to raise awareness for rare diseases such as her own – and that’s a mission we’re happy to support.  In the coming months, we’ll be providing updates on Cindy’s training and preparation for the Iditarod on our women’s site – please check back often to see how she’s doing.  In the meantime, you can learn more about Cindy and the journey that has brought her to this point on her website, reachingbeyondtheclouds.com.  To offer your support, go to Cindy’s fundraising page.

Whether it’s layered over your best dress, worn under a fun faux fur vest or topping a colorful t-shirt, the Quilted Leather Bomber lends classic style that’s as comfortable as it is beautiful.

A Sandal for All Seasons (Almost)

I’m not sure I’d strap it on in the middle of January when there’s a foot of snow outside — but any other time of year, the Earthkeepers Montvale Sandal is your go-to girl.  See?

Love: Contrast stitching detail, ankle strap and heel that’s stylish AND comfortable.
Don’t love:When it’s finally time to retire them for the winter.

You can shop for the Montvale (and our other closed-toe beauty the Wingate) on our website now.

Fashion Fresh From the Sea

Maybe it’s a symptom of our Yankee frugality, but at Timberland we LOVE to recycle.  There’s something oddly thrilling about giving old stuff like plastic bottles and discarded tires a second life as recycled materials in our products.

And as we get more excited about recycling, we get a little crazy.  For example: Recycled coffee grounds in our S.Café® yarn (the grounds trap odors and absorb sweat — who knew?).  And when you’re designing a jacket and you need it to be waterproof and durable, why not start by thinking about other materials that are waterproof and durable?  Like, I dunno … fishing nets and ropes, salvaged from the ocean?

Introducing ReNet™ recycled nylon fabric:

Using ReNet™ in our products means less waste in the landfill (or worse – floating around in the ocean) — and wearing a jacket with ReNet™ in it gives YOU a whopper of a good story to tell on your next fishing trip.

Learn more about ReNet™ and the other recycled and renewable materials we use in our products in the Timberland Technology Guide.

The Boys of Summer and Their Favorite Shoes

They’re already pushing Halloween candy in the grocery store, which means we haven’t got much time left to talk about summer shoes (at least not without looking pitifully behind the times).  Without further ado, here are a few of our favorite Timberland men, sharing their picks for Best Footwear of Summer 2012:

For his weekend escapes, Jan from our Belgium sales team loves the Earthkeepers Radler Approach:  “I load up the van and drive to Wallonie, ‘the deep south of Belgium,’ for some hiking, camping and even a little rock climbing—and Radler can do it all.”

Italian sales planner Diego favors the Formentor boat shoe – and not just for sailing: “The second you put them on, you feel ready for anything. They’re really lightweight, super comfortable and now they’re my top pick for every day.”

Look and feel helped to make the Earthkeepers Hookset Handcrafted chukka a favorite for senior product manager Troy: ” They look great and are easier on the environment. I love the way the organic canvas feels. Plus, they’re really comfortable and flexible.”
