Give Your Feet Something to be Thankful For

Packing up for the long holiday weekend?  Throw a pair of Earthkeepers Radler Camp boots in your bag – they’re lightweight, toasty warm and take up next-to-no room, thanks to their zip-together design.  Best of all, they’ll take you from food coma on the couch to brisk walk around the block (you know you should) without missing a step.

The Radler Camp boot comes in a variety of colors and patterns for men, women and kids. Take your pick here.

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.”

Rock & Recycle: Expert Advice from Zero Hero

“Zero Hero” might sound like an oxymoron, but bear with me: this organization helps to make music and lifestyle festivals more eco-conscious and sustainable.  We caught up with Zero Hero founder Bryan Birch at the 2012 Wanderlust Festival in Vermont earlier this summer and he gave us some tips on how to enjoy summer’s best events without leaving a huge environmental impact:

Buddy Up.  Carpooling is way more fun than going solo anyway.  Another responsible alternative?  Using event-provided transportation, like the bio-diesel powered Wanderlust bus, to save gas money and CO2 emissions.

BYOBottle. Buying bottled water is so 2006.  Bring your own reusable bottle to fill on site to save a few bucks and spare the environment your plastic waste.

Dress for success. Mom always said wear clean underwear and that’s a good start – even better is topping it with clothing and footwear made with recycled and renewable materials. Like these:

Earthkeepers Wharf Bomber Jacket, made with recycled nylon

Earthkeepers Radler Trail Low Approach, featuring recycled PET linings and recycled rubber in the outsoles
