Products aren’t often just products these days – contemporary consumers want to buy into something bigger.
The Timberland Greenstride Motion 6 hikers are a case in point: the footwear company has partnered with We Go Outside Too, and will be committing £5 of every in store sale of the boots to the initiative. The great outdoors has the power to clear the mind and sometimes change your life, but there’s been a lot of gatekeeping on who has access to it – potentially the case in the United Kingdom more than in most other European countries. We Go Outside Too looks to right this wrong, providing opportunities for intergenerational Black communities across Birmingham, the Black Country and the West Midlands to better access outdoor activities.
Offering holistic workshops, nature-based learning and providing a safe space for BIPOC community members, to democratise the outdoors and reap its many benefits. For those looking for a sustainable pair of shoes, the American brand also delivers here: the Greenstride Motion 6 has been designed with a triangular lug outsole made from Regenerative Rubber as well as ReBOTLTM mesh panel and linings made from at least 50% recycled plastic. For shoes that feel good on your feet and your conscience, these hit the mark.
