Trend Alert: Camo

Trend Alert: Camo

Camo is the one trend this fall that’s made for you to stand out — not blend in. It’s the hottest print of the season and we have plenty of styles for you to choose from. Top brands like adidas Originals, Nike, Under Armour, and more are all carrying their own camouflage print.

So how do you wear it? Well, you don’t want to overdo it — looking like a member of a militia or duck-hunting party isn’t the goal — so pick your favorite piece of camo shoes or clothing and make it the statement piece. From there, build your outfit around it. You can mix camo with more neutrals or wear it with a pop of color for a bold look.

Timberland: A Deep-Rooted History Of Excellence

Timberland: A Deep-Rooted History Of Excellence

Timberland boots are everywhere. Next time you are out in public, check to see what everyone around you is laced up in and you’re bound to see quite a few Timberlands.  Part fashion staple, part work warrior, they are really the perfect boots to take anywhere and do anything in. Timberlands were invented in America and became a global phenomenon thanks to their premium craftsmanship, cutting edge designs, and legendary comfort. Check out our timeline and behind-the-scenes photos below to learn more about how the boots you love came to be!

A Timberland Timeline

1973

eb_12-07-timberland_1973_sewingcloseup_660x385

The first Timberland waterproof boot is created in Newmarket, New Hampshire, thanks to silicone and oil coating — setting the new standard for quality-crafted boots.

Fun Fact: Timberland footwear is submerged in water for four hours, then flexed 15,000 times to ensure they remain dry to get the passing grade.

1978

eb_12-07-timberland_1978_line_660x385

Based on the success of the boot, the Swartz family, decide to rename the company ‘Timberland.’

2007

eb_12-07-timberland_2007_laces_660x385

Timberland takes its first steps to create an eco-friendly collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories. Earthkeepers is created, a program that makes their products from recycled, organic, and renewable materials.

Fun Fact: Timberland has recycled 233 million water bottles by using PET materials to make laces, mesh lining, and other various parts of their footwear.

2008

eb_12-07-timberland_2008_soleimprint_660x400

Timberland partners with Green Rubber Inc. to make the outsoles for their boots from old tires. Once the tires are discarded, they are re-claimed to be recycled into the footwear, rather than ending up in landfills.

Fun Fact: Since then, Timberland has saved 3.3 million pounds of rubber by reusing them to make the outsoles of their boots.

2013

eb_12-07-timberland_2013_lineofboots_660x346

Your favorite boot turns 40! The “Best Then. Better Now.” campaign launches to celebrate the anniversary of the popular boot and show Timberland as a head-to-toe outdoor brand.
