Because Running Around Barefoot Isn’t Always Safe (or Pretty)

Yes, yes, I know — it’s summer and for some of us “summer” is defined as: “the only 3 months of the year in which I don’t have to wear wool socks and heavy footwear.”  It’s bare feet season, baby.

But for the few occasions when it’s just not a good idea to run around with naked feet (trail running, sprinting across very hot pavement to get to the ice cream truck, the day you meant to get a pedicure but didn’t), we bring you the Earthkeepers BareStep Trail Oxford.  You’ll love that the BareStep is fashionable and functional (thanks to a super-stable outsole made with Gripstick and Green Rubber) and your feet will love the cushy faux-suede lining.  Here’s Ellen to tell you more:

If you’re not loving the leather look, not to worry — our Earthkeepers Barestep Collection also includes a sporty oxford featuring breathable mesh and bright colors, and a clog lined with SmartWool and faux shearling. (Because like it or not, bare feet season isn’t going to last forever.)

Spanish Sailors Go for the Gold in Timberland Formentors

Timberland introduces our newest brand ambassadors … the Spanish Olympic Sailing Team!

Timberland will accompany the national team in the run up to their participation in the London 2012 Olympics, providing Earthkeeper footwear and clothing made from recycled and recyclable materials.

The Spanish sailors test-drove their brand new equipment in Mallorca during the Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia competition in April, one of the seven competitions that make up the World Cup of sailing.

Remember, you don’t have to be a world-class sailor to wear Timberland’s Formentor boat shoes; even the most ardent land lovers can get the look by shopping our entire boat shoe collection here.
