…It’s Things Thursday: Dr. Martens For Life?

Dr. Martens For Life

Nothing lasts forever, but at least with the new Dr. Martens For Life boots and shoes, your footwear can last as long as you do.

Thanks to added weight and thickness in the inner core of the sole and a highly resistant and supple leather called Hardlife, the new For Life line comes with a lifetime guarantee, meaning when they eventually wear out, Dr. Martens will repair them, and will continue to repair them for the rest of your life – guaranteed.

…Etnies is taking on the SEED Project?

Etnies SEED Project

The etnies SEED Project “is a unique collection of apparel and footwear made of sustainable and recycled materials that reflect etines’ responsibility to give back to the planet. With the purchase of these products, one percent of the proceeds will be donated to benefit environmental organizations that etnies believes will plant the seeds for the future of action sports, humanity and our planet.”

The Spring ’08 collection was done in collaboration with San Diego-based artists Gary Benzel, and includes shoes, sandals, shirts, hats, socks, and hoodies for both men and women.

Looking good while saving the planet?

Count me in.

…People like shoes?

I was just shown this video, and after watching it, I feel 3:51 dumber. How can a video like this have over 6.7 million views? I apologize in advance.

…Street Pirates are sweet kicks?

Street Pirates

Just got a new pair of kicks, the Lakai Limited Mariano Street Pirates. I love that they’re subtle with little a bit of colorful flavor thrown in the mix, and I dig anything that comes with a skull and crossbones (crossboards) predominantly featured.. Also, I couldn’t find the right size locally, so I went through Utility Board Supply and can recommend them without doubt. Shipping was fast, customer service was excellent, and I even saved a few bucks off the local price. Sweet.

Nike factories get a lot of flack as the poster child for underpaid sweatshop style labor. Everything To Everyone managed to get a behind the scenes look at a Nike shoe factory, and it’s a pretty impressive and candid look at one of the most vilified industries on the planet.
